Negotiating Better Terms With A Regular

68 posts in this topic

There is someone I have seen five times now in the last year - I think that qualifies as a regular. I would see her more if the terms were better. I pay X for1 hour - but would be far happier paying x/2 for 30 minutes - as 30 minutes is a good length of slot for me and it would be more economical. However - her rate  for half the time is not half the sum - in fact it is 4/5 of the full sum - for understandable reasons - and I appreciate that. However - I probably would not bother to see her again for 1 hour as I feel that time slot combined with the price does not work for me. I would pay 6/10 of the price for half the time and see her more often.

 

So my question is - would it be reasonable - given all the circumstances - to ask for this slot/rate?

 

I would like to hear from someone who has made a similar proposition.

There are a lot of issues with why the escorts charge for a short time, like time getting ready, keeping the number of visitors down to a few, which spring to mind.

 

So I can see why the escort does not accept a half of her hourly rate for a 30 minute booking.

 

If you were to approach the escort with a proposal, such as maybe a 45 minute booking for an 8th of her hourly rate, which would be a regular boking every few months, im sure she would look upon this as a transaction that might intrest her.

 

If she says no without any consideration, then you are not going to be seen by her as a regular...I hope your lucky mate.

All you can do is ask.  I never offered 1/2 hours so it wouldn't have worked for me, but many do so she may say yes.

Lancelot you will only know your answer (is it reasonable to ask for a better rate) if you ask the lady!  Any responses on here are down to the individual's stance on this one... ie some would consider it and some would not entertain the idea.... which is of little help to you I would think.

 

One way to find out and you need to bite that bullet and ask her.

 

(I would not reduce my rates for shorter appointments.... not even for regular clients)

Speaking for myself here as a WG who does not offer short length appointments (because I know they would run over and negate my hourly rate)  I don't do discounts because I do not clock watch.  It depends on the girl herself and her work ethic.  I would say to ask her - but if she refuses it may cause embarrassment and............. you are looking a bit tight fisted here Lancelot :)

Well I do half hours because thats all some guys need and thats all some guys want, and thats all some guys can afford and thats all some poor guys have escape time for. Which is all good with me. I would just ask her. She may charge the higher rate as she prefers to nudge guys in the direction of the hours as she prefers doing hour bookings even though it earns her more to do the half hours. Just ask, you never get anywhere without asking. I guess the reception you recieve will depend on her mood at the time x

If you agreed to make a certain number of visits per month / year as part of the bargain, and then kept to this schedule, she might be more receptive to the idea.  Just a thought.

 

Sorry, but to add something that is somewhat off topic, I find it frustrating, if not annoying, that so many girls offer a rate for 90 minutes that is higher than the rate of 1 hour X 1.5.

 

Why would any girl do this?  It puts me off booking 90 minutes as I know I will get better value with 2 separate 1 hour appointments.  I would be sure that most girls would rather do 2 ninety minute bookings rather than 3 separate one hour bookings for the same money so why charge more for 2 ninety minute bookings than for 3 one hour bookings?

 

I would have thought a discount off the hourly rate for longer bookings is more sensible than adding a premium, but adding a premium for 90 minutes seems to be very common.

My ninety minute rate is £5 higher than my one hour rate x 1.5, mainly because I don't have lots of loose fivers kicking about for change and I doubt punters do either. Whether I'd rather do two ninety minute bookings or three one hour ones depends entirely on with whom I'm doing them.

 

As for the OP, not a chance. If she doesn't offer a 45 minute appointment (and therefore doesn't have an existing rate for one) maybe ask about that, but trying to haggle her down on the rates she's already decided (and presumably for a reason) is likely to do no good at all and just cause bad feeling. Just because you've visited a few times previously doesn't alter that - for all you know she might be glad to see the back of you.

Most serious long term escorts will have experimented with their rates and have adjusted them at some point both to encourage business and to try and get her the type and length of bookings she wants. Those who in it for the long haul and rely on the money to pay their bills (unlike the hobby whores who do it simply for kicks or a bit of extra cash) will probably prefer to get regular clients. Or at least regular clients that they want- ie those who are reliable, nice and good fun to be with. 

 

Often, good regulars are the jam and butter of a business and realistically, long lucrative bookings are harder to come by and less desirable with strangers. I personally won't take more than 3 hours with a newcomer and as Chloe points out many men are limited by time, finances and personal desire. 

 

So, whilst there will be some women who have strange rates because they can't add up, there are plenty who have done this on purpose.

 

As said, the OP needs to ask nicely and not assume. Some clients we adore seeing and might be willing to see for a lower rate, but others we only tolerate because we feel we are getting enough money!

 

I suggest the OP thinks about how he asks- any mention of 'cheaper' will get a woman's back up. i would go down the line of saying something like 'You know I struggle to keep going for an hour, would you be willing to split my appointments into 2 half hour sessions and I pay £x for each half hour?' Tell her you respect her rates and time policies, but thought you ask just in case it was possible.

 

Don't tell her you won't come back if she won't do this- that will pee many off and don't be offended if she says no because as much as she may like you there may be good reason for her to refuse, but also, we are a cynical lot due to those who are less than honest or genuine when they ask for discounts!

Normally I have time to book a WG for a minimum time, that is often one hour. Some WGs have prices for 15 or 30 min.

 

I once had a booking. I told the WG: "I booked you for one hour, but I only have 45 minutes. But I have already paid the madam for one hour. I won't ask for a partial refund. I apologize for having to go earlier. :) "

As I make plenty of grammatical errors with using the phone for posting I know that you meant " a 45 minute booking for an 8th OFF her hourly rate" but it has really tickled me imagining a lady whose hourly rate is £120 accepting £15 for 45 minutes. That would be a lady who was in it for the enjoyment not the money. :f

Depends. I'd say if you were someone who is reliable, turns up with minimum of fuss, is timely and discrete then she may go for this offer of slightly over half of her hourly fee, for half the time. Half hour bookings can be a fun interlude, but I found personally they were unsuited to me or my style, and were heavily abused when I tried them, however [very] occasionally, with the right person they can work out absolutely fine for everyone. :D

What a marvellous piece of alliteration. Very naughty but very funny (although probably not to a part-time lady). But it's the first time I've heard the phrase and I don't mean to offend anyone by saying that I find it funny.

On a more serious note. I would imagine that different ladies would have a different interpretation of the term "regular". One might think that 3/4 times a year is regular whilst another think that to be a regular would mean visiting her a least once a month.

Yes, I rather like that expression too! I'm sure I am not the first person to come up with it!

 

Anyway, yes regular does mean different things to different people. I have had a client promising to become a regular and heavily hinting at discounted rates. I have seen him once and the second time he booked asked for a discount because he was now 'a regular'! I think not- added to the fact that yes he has seen me once, but also cancelled three bookings! Tsk.

It takes a lady just as long to prepare (shower, dress, tidy the room, change pillow cases, re-light candles, etc etc) for a 2 hour slot or a 30 minute slot. That's why I have always thought that the pro-rata rate for a short slot is higher than for a longer one.

 

Of course, if you want to use the second hand towels, punt on an already crumpled bed, punt with a lady who has not showered, smell the BO from the last bloke etc etc then go ahead and try to get the price down.

One of my mates hates regulars and prefers new clients all the time because she says that a lot of them try to beat the price down, extend time, or start expecting services not on the menu.  Have to say I did get a bit of that myself, but put up with it because I felt safer with regulars. mmmm  How wrong was I on that point..

IMO, it is the WG that can decide to apply a discount or not, not the client.

 

I remember having a booking which was 3 hours. 20 minutes was a trio: that is, with 2 other WGs. The total price was € 450,-. The female pimp (which was also a WG herself) decided that the time for the trio was increased from 20 to 40 minutes. Actually I didn't pay less, but I got more than was based on the rate. You can also consider this way: I had sex with an additional WG for 20 minutes for free. The pimp told me that I paid a lot and will stay very long, so she thinks offering more than what I paid for, would be fair.

no harm in asking mate but there may be an issue in terms of the classification of being a regular

 

if you have seen her 5 times in the last full year, i doubt she will acquiesce to your demands

 

if you have seen her 5 times THIS year (ie just over 6 weeks), its a fair proposal

I would like to hear from someone who has made a similar proposition.

In a sense, you have asked the wrong question.  Assume that she accepts your proposal and that you subsequently visit her and tender the reduced rate (when she may even have forgotten the prior agreement) will you get the same level of service as you would have if you had paid her advertised rate.

 

Never haggle.  If she values your business, leave her to offer something (even if it's just a thrilling time)

My ninety minute rate is £5 higher than my one hour rate x 1.5, mainly because I don't have lots of loose fivers kicking about for change and I doubt punters do either.

 

So I think most people would expect the price to be rounded down by £5 rather than rounded up.

Your choice of course

As you rightly say, that's what you think. Nobody else seems to, or not that they've mentioned to me at least and since it's probably the second most popular appointment length after one hour I'm inclined to think you may be wrong. But what would I know after ten years whoring? :rolleyes:.

I think it's up to the lady if she wishes to give you a discount or bonus of some kind.

If a lady did decide, for whatever reason, to take less money from me I would be very pleased but I think it's wrong to seek to negotiate. It doesn't matter whether it's a discount or extra time or coffee and cake to finish with it's up to the lady. I must have been prepared to pay the price originally otherwise I would never have seeked a booking. I would expect that asking for a discount on future bookings would sour not only that booking but the next one whether a discount had been granted or not.

I think it's just not a very nice idea.

Personally,i dont think anyone would begrudge a fiver,Especially to get a prefered time limit.If they were worried about the thirty costing an extra fiver they could always go for the two hours.If you look at half hour rates,and it seems for a ninety youd normally be paying the hourly plus the thirty rate,thats a good deal on offer.

On topic.If i was really enjoying the time spent id prefer to keep paying the same rate and see them not so often but enjoy the time then risk annoying them by haggling.On the flip side,theres always the old saying,"If you dont try you dont get".It all depends on how much you are enjoying your time together.

I never "discount" my rates and would be a bit miffed if they asked,

 

What HAS happened over the years that I have got to know my regulars, regardless of whether they are 30min or hour clients, is that I extend their time. I am not fussed if a HABITUAL 30min regular ends up spending close to an hour ON OCCASION. But I would knock it on the head if they KEPT extending to an hour rather than 40-45.  Same goes for a regular hour visitor that stays for over 90mins, unless it became a trend.

 

For really good regulars I have exceptional low rates for days out to cricket/races/lunch as I enjoy their company, but if THEY had asked to pay £300 for a day I would have said jog on! Lol.

I have knocked a bit off a booking fee once or twice only when guys I have already seen several times have asked. The reason being that they never tried to haggle me for no reason. They simply stated they were a bit short that week and would I mind. They paid in full before then and have paid in full since. I do occasional discounts, not huge ones though and no, I wouldnt spend a day with a guy for £300 either.
