Prices Rising?

23 posts in this topic

A couple of the London Girls I have been keeping an eye on (but not got around to visiting yet) seem to have put their prices up in the last week or so.

Essex Chloe, Ella and Miss Selfish - and a couple I have seen, Sweet Leeloo and suzibuzi also.

Is this a sign of high inflation? I thought we were in a recession!

Or are our reviews so glowing and including such provocative statements such as " this girl should be charging twice as much..." that we are inadvertently fuelling this increase.

Maybe we should tone down our reviews and give more neutrals rather than positives, and certainly never hint that a girl could be charging more.

My own back of the envelope calculations tell me that girls seeing just a few guys a day at £100 an hour are making more per annum than I ever did!

and probably tax free!

So lets haggle more, avoid those who have jumped their prices up, restrain our praise and keep those prices down!

Fair enough, assuming demand doesn't increase of course.

Yet only a few days ago we had a thread on Girls Putting Their Prices Down. Many factors determine how much a WG charges. As with many things location is a factor. The price of a pint of beer varies with location. Rent in Wembley is less than that in Chelsea. I could go on and on. My experience of WGs is that some are more in it for the money than others and some can be very generous. Agency prices have hardly altered for many years now with £150 - £200 being the standard fee. WGs' prices tend to in line with haircuts times ten. See Nick Storr's book on his researches around the world called Ten Times the Price of a Haircut. This is sometimes available on www.amazon.co.uk and is one of the funniest books I have ever read. After years of work on development projects in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, with sojourns in North America and Europe, he formulated the politically incorrect view that the price of a romp in the hay, wherever he was working, was about ten times the price of a Haircut. His strategy on arriving at a new town was to ask the taxi driver the price of a haircut to give him an understanding of the lie of the land.

Mr Leo offers a Haircut for £6.00 in Tottenham Court Road. For £60.00 you have a WG for half an hour round the corner.

Prices now are generally cheaper that they were in the late 90's. Cannot think of many service industries that statement applies to.

Even though you may think independents make loads of money they do still have out goings such as advertising and working flat. These dont come cheap I can assure you:)

I'm sure the ladies who've raised their prices (and therefore are likely very busy) will not miss your custom. And I can't speak for any other lady, but I hang up on hagglers and refuse to see them at any price -- it's disrespectful and frankly, why would I see someone like that when I could be seeing a nice client who's happy to accept the price I've set? I think this will be my last comment in any thread querying how much WGs make -- change the record, someone.

I don't want to comment on price levels as that is down to the ladies and the agencies, but why restrain praise when it is genuinely deserved?

A punter happily pays a girl the agreed price. He then receives a top quality service, so why not praise the girl? Isn't this the whole purpose of FRs, i.e. to give credit when it is due?

Obviously for a bad punt this is a different matter, but why not give credit when it is due?

As for haggling, no escort likes this and I doubt if decent punters are in favour of it. Even if a punter succeeded in haggling before a punt, I am pretty sure that this would affect the quality of the encounter as there could be serious "chemistry" issues between the client and the escort.

In the first five minutes or so of my encounter, I would prefer to make a lovely gentlemanly first impression on the escort by embracing her and being kind and romantic with her rather than waste this "first impression is the last impression" time on haggling.

I agree that praise is absolutely appropriate for a good service, and there would be no point in reviews if the reviews are not honest and reliable. However, one or two punters make quite ludicrous and OTT statements such as 'she should be charging twice as much'. Often for girls already charging £100ph. I think this kind of exaggeration is misleading both to the girl and other punters.

I am all for honest, short, sensible reviews of girls.

In terms of haggling, If punters don't have that much money, I see no problem in explaining this to an escort and asking if she would consider a lower fee. This happens in all walks of life. You can haggle with a solicitor, private dentist, someone selling you a car, a builder, just about any service. In most countries of the world haggling is the norm. And escorts in London do indeed come from most countries of the world (well certainly Asia and Eastern Europe), so haggling is probably second nature to them.

I can't afford £150 an hour, but have explained this to a couple of girls I have seen and there has been no problem negotiating a discount - and I don't feel I received a diminished service. After all, if work is slow then why not take £100/£120. It is better than nothing! And even £100 an hour is a staggering hourly rate. I am retired but was a senior manager and the most I ever earned was about £35 an hour. And I had overheads such as a flat to pay for, just like a wg!

prices are static or have gone down in my experience

Haggle may be an accurate term but it comes with a negative tone.

i wouldn't negotiate with a wg unless i'd seen her a few times.

But once she was a regular i would either ask for or be offered

some 'preferred customer satus' or 'loyalty bonus'.

In a service industry canny client management can yield positive results

for both parties.

In my experience, despite there being an ever increasing number of new girls coming on the scene, at ever more competitive prices (it is possible to get 15 mins for £20 within 3 miles of me), those girls with good english, a good reputation and a good service can maintain and even increase their prices as many punters are willing to pay a premium for reliability.

So lets haggle more

Best of luck with that :).

1) Would you really want to see an escort who spends 40 hours a week having sex? Do you think you would get a high quality service from such a lady? Do you not think that escorts need a break between punts and spend unpaid time arranging bookings etc?

2) Few escorts work out of their home flat. therefore they have to pay for 2 residences.

I could go on but suggest you reread the post by Curious Rose several times.

If you cant afford escorts you want to see, investigate 30/45 minute bookings, parlours, Soho walkups etc and find escorts you can afford.

If you can't afford a certain lady's fee, look elsewhere. There will usually be cheaper options. Don't expect any working girl in London to lower their prices just for you.

hmm,

obviously most of those commenting on this topic are bankers, for whom money is no object!

There can be no correlation between hours worked and price charged. The girls at HOD, for example, work fairly continuously with short or minimal breaks. That has been revealed on other topics. That is what they want to do to generate maximum income for themselves.

So if you are expecting your £200 escort to only see you in a day you are mistaken!

And the price of a rented room for a day is not that high compared to home costs, and many girls do work from home. Even a hotel such as the Ibis is under £100 a day, so just one client covers that.

If you reread my post, I stated that I have asked, and been offered a discount, by escorts, therefore to suggest I go to Soho walk-ups if I don't have much cash, rather than negotiate is quite rich!

These are tough times and the countries from which the majority of wgirls come from are quite used to the idea of a discount, so guys, don't be shy - just ask

She can only say no and then you can go elsewhere. Us Brits are not good at negotiations, but remember, you wouldn't pay the asking price on a house would you??!!

Hi Iorar,

I appreciate your concerns. But I don't think that bringing your reviews down will help. What the girl charges is up to her and if she feels that she can put her prices up, that's her decision to make. Please don't judge all of us by this. Often girls put their prices up because they have had a really terrible experience and want to avoid the same again by making themselves financially less obtainable!

Our reviews are our bread and butter and having regular clients calming down their reviews can do us real harm. As for what we make. It's not nearly as much as you might think. A lot of us are with agencies and so have to give a large percentage of our rate away immediately. Most of us DO pay tax... which is also a killer. And then there's the tools of our trade that we have to worry about. I bet your employer doesn't charge you for the pens and paper you get through at work, or the rent of the building, internet and phone bills etc. Put that alongside the constant uncertainty and fluctuation in work. It does add up.

Have a word with the WGs that you've seen and suggest that because you are a regular of theirs and have payed the previous rate could you please continue to pay that rate? If you ask nicely I'm sure they won't say no. But please don't go shooting yourself in the foot. Haggling is not fun and if you make an issue of it, chances are the girl won't see you again. It works both ways.

I hope this helps and you read it as it is intended - I don't want to sound like I'm 'having a go'.

Thanks a lot for your insight though,

Rose

Haggling is the most undignified thing a client/potential client could do, to themselves that is. I don't go to Harrods and offer to pay Asda prices for my goods. Also, escorts are not commodities, we provide an experience. Holidays to me are an experience, and they're not something one could usually haggle with; you wouldn't tell a travel agent you'd like to go to Mustique but only have a Butlins budget. It's each individual escorts prerogative to decide what she wishes to set her fees at, and if you can't afford the ones you like the look of then move on and find someone within your price range. With such a vast choice of escorts out there covering all price ranges there really is no excuse for haggling. Others weren't wrong to suggest Soho walk ups, as they are traditionally are at the cheaper end, so if you can't afford escorts that's maybe your best bet.

I will simply remind you that seeing escorts isn't like hiring a builder, haggling with a solicitor etc. You are 'purchasing' a very personal sexual service from an escort. The quality of the service is based on many factors - looks, sexual performance, attitude (both yours and the escorts) and trust. If you ask for a discount you risk damaging the last of these four factors and affecting the escorts sexual performance and attitude towards you. You will probably not be aware that you are receiving a substandard service thinking that you have got yourself a bargain. That is the reality of the situation.

Good luck to you. And apologies for suggesting Soho Walkups.

PS - No I'm not a banker. Such a lazy comment.

I have read this thread & am like minded with a lot of what iorar is saying. Why is it perceived to be such a personal affront to ask for a discount? My business & personal life involves a lot of discussion of & negotiation on price, so why should this "hobby" (which is what this is to me) be any different?

Now granted......there are ways to discuss price in a manner whereby you & the SP can meet a common goal and which avoids the inflammatory "DISCOUNT" headline. I have reached this common goal many times.

Here we go again.

Can we talk about someone else's salary please?!

I'd like a luxury penthouse flat in central London but I can't afford it so I live in an ordinary one in the suburbs I can afford. Some people want a top of the range sports car but have to make do with something that fits their budget. People dream of owning an Armani suit but their budget only extends to Marks and Sparks, I could go on. We all have desires for material things but we go through life either making do or saving up.

Incidentally, how many of you chaps do a job when you wonder will this next client be the one to rob me/hit me/chop me up into bits? It's not always as easy as some people like to think doing this job.

be off limits is a mystery.rates are a core issue.
