The group takes no money off my escort bookings, but they do take payment to supply drivers and uploading/editing content.
I don't really enjoy 30 minute bookings which is why the price is high, but I know some clients prefer to walk in, get their cocks out and cum and go without any pleasantries. So I leave the 30 minute option there (so far only taken two 30 minute bookings in 6 months).
As I said, I offer a slightly different service - one that caters for clients who are into bondage, discipline, humiliation and the more kinky side. Because this is a niche I tend to have a lot of repeat custom for longer bookings. I'm happy with the way things are working, and most importantly I am doing something I love to do but earning money and knowing that I am safer working within a group that has a driver nearby at all times.
I also take the time to listen to requests from clients and act out their fantasies/roleplays. Quite a bit of my earnings go into buying costumes and toys (have suitcase will travel!) x
