Very good Jimmy, what I find interesting is that I tend to get asked for discount during busy times/or when I can't take any more bookings/at times not possible. Occasionally some blokes have gotten stroppy about this, but if I'm fully booked I'm hardly likely to see someone at a reduced rate. I have often offered them an appointment on a quieter day, but that's usually not good enough for them!

I suppose chaps have to be lucky enough to ring at the right time.

From a point of view of logic, Jimmy's post is almost as much bollox as KN's.
Translation.
Everyone is wrong and I am right.  :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
A better 'translation' might be:
JRC is better at winning that argument in the absence of logic than KN is.

For the record, I probably agree with the gist of what both of you said. But this is incidental. I mischievously wanted to pull KN's string though as he had specifically claimed on another thread to uphold 'logic' and had simultaneously left more obviously gaping holes.

Take it as a compliment on your debating skills if you like. ;)

Personally I would quite like to see a return to logic, say, in the debating chamber of parliament. I rather doubt if I will see it in my lifetime.

Getting down to practicalities . . .

In case it's of use to anyone not feeling 'lucky',

There's a line I've tried successfully in negotiation. For instance, a WG has hinted she'll keep her low prices down for me when they increase on her profile (but may be loathe to do so in practice if she has better offers). Or I know she wants to accept my 30 minute booking request but normally only does 1hr minimum. Or any other situation where there might be some give and take. I give her an idea of my likely availability and ask if there is a tine that is more 'convenient' for her.

I've only done this where the difference in price is sufficiently remarkable to make me want to bother. But I thought I'd throw it in in case it's helpful.

If a guy wants a lower rate with a girl the best thing to do is Mail the girl and politely say that he would like to see her but her rates are beyond the rate he wishes to afford (as opposed to telling her she is ovberpriced or that he cant afford her)

In the same message ask her if she ever offers any offers or reduced rates perhaps at her quieter times.

Many of the more organised girls would be glad for a booking at say £100 on a Tuesday morning at 10.30am as opposed to their normal rate of £130, much more productive than them watching daytime TV and earning nothing.

Very useful, but as I say I've found a lot of clients can be very rigid in their timing requirements. This is possibly because of my area though, since a lot have to plan travelling etc.

James I don't watch daytime TV, if I'm not seeing a client I'll usually be catching up on chores or following up one of my other pursuits but I know exactly what you mean but as above not many of my clients are that flexible. Might work in other areas/for other girls though.

Can I just remind you that this thread has very little to do with "asking" for a discount.
It has everything to do with whether a punter should accept the ladies kind offer.
This was post number 1   ----

"I've got a 2 hour meet with a lady tomorrow who has offered me £30 discount of her normal fee.  She offered this to me when she cancelled at the last minute & of course I've taken her up on the offer."

Online Marmalade

And I see Wayang quickly talked the OP out of giving her the amount she was discounting on top. :rolleyes:.

But women are often more subject to emotional 'niceties' - if she was inclined to repeat any sort of discount deal, a £3 bag of chocolates, nicely wrapped with her name written on it at the last minute, might persuade some WGs he is 'nice' or at least make him slightly memorable. I've known WGs go ape over a packet of fruit jellies. I myself have had a bigger response to a cheap chocolate cream egg. They like money best. But next in line is what they categorise as 'thoughtfulness.' Personally I don't know how a cream egg costing 80p is more 'thoughtful' than a bottle of Chablis costing £8 - but do I care??


Just to update anyone who's interested.......

Paid £170 for 2 hours, got just over 2 hours from a very hot lady who performed everything stated on her profile very well.  DFK, OWO & deep throat, but sadly I could only manage 2 rounds.  I was slightly worried that she might withhold some services or try to rush me but she certainly did not.

A very enjoyable & worthwhile punt, I would have no problem at all recommending her & will definately see her again on her normal rate.

Well there you go!!

Yes, of course we're interested, WCL, and thanks for getting back on it. As you can see, we've had fun arguing the toss while some people are actually out punting. :lol:

My now retired regular was charging £150 an hour i got 3 hours for £275 .
i love discounts

It was a good debate, and WCL got his reduced rate for two hours and enjoyed it, and is going to see the esort again.

Moral of the story is, treat people with respect and offer a bit of a discount, and they will return it with another booking.

Sounds so much better than


(Sorry I've no field report - just thought I'd share the poster) ;)

While understanding your point and the 'moral' of the tale, your comparison - for a man who proclaims logic - is utter bullshit.

It boils down to

Some girls' pricing is not set in stone.
Therefore:
No girls' pricing is set in stone.

Which I trust that even you would have to agree is utter bullshit. ;)

But as Schopenhauer famously pointed out in The Art of Always Being Right, most people will of course neither notice or care. :)


Marmalade. Dude. You spend a lot of time on here, and you contribute many a meaningful and occasionally wistful post. It is with this thought in mind that I will not take your accusation of me spouting bullshit personally.

It is an incontrovertible fact that everywhere on the planet, bar North Korea, Cuba and the former East Germany, no prices are set in stone. Interest rates, cars, houses, food, petrol, hotel rooms, airplane and train tickets, clothes, furniture, mobile phone tariffs, betting odds, booze...... ALL bob up and down in price to suit the market and to suit demand, be it local or temporal.

Why should tarts' rates be any different?

Did I claim to uphold logic? Don't think so. I just pointed out that one of our more irascible member's POV on something was bereft of logic. That's not the same thing as upholding logic as a thing to aspire to, or as a means to resolve dispute. In fact, it's quite illogical to think that it is.

Dude. I would never accuse you of spouting bullshit. I queried the logic, which was flawed. Just as a cartographer might exclaim that your quickest route from Edinburgh to London wad not technically by D-roads, as you might have claimed, irrespective of whether you knew the quickest way and had even got there quicker than any man alive. So nothin' personal.

Arrgh . . .  No, I won't explain. You might be offended. But could you buy me some cut-price postage stamps. I'll happily refund.

If a girl is good I would give her extra but not the whole £30.

OK. Explain to me - and no offence need be given or taken here - why tarts' prices are set in stone and no-one else's is.

I'd be interested too - given the number of special offers that I see on various WG sites.
WRT to postage stamps - they are 'negotiable in that (i) you can always send it second class and (ii) large letters have a variety of rates!
Specials abound - and if specials abound so do opportunities for negotiation.

Ok I'll maybe go thru the logic if you are really interested. But remember I only disagree with your logic and not your opinion. And now you say you're not bothered about logic and correctly picked me up on claiming you did so . . . Anyway, later - have other stuff have to attend to just now.

I would never ask for a discount, as most seem to take it as a personal insult. It's almost as bad as asking for bareback or hardsports. I'm sure we've all read the standard FAQ that says - Please do not insult me be asking for...

Their FAQ also say some are Virgins as well, do you believe that?

Of course the girl won't advertiseprices negotiable, in the same way the local Mercedes dealer won't but the prices are, unless you pay full advertised price for everything?

As for the link to bareback and hardsports, not everyones mind works like yours and to most they are unacceptable and something not to be considered.

You have your opinion which I consider to be wrong, you obviously don't eat out much or when you do you eat at sub-standard eateries.   2 for 1 Meals at restaurants have been around for a long time, most certainly before they were 'struggling with the recession'  but if you think a restaurant can offer a 2 for 1 meal and give the same portions or the same quality of food (e.g  not exchanging their usual 'chicken kiev for a cheaper brand...looks the same but costs much less) and still make money then you'd be wrong, genuine discounts are hard to find, most 2 for 1 deals are simply clever marketing ( similar to that of some of the escorts on AW) to snare you the paying customer in.  For somebody so seemingly traveled you sure are gullible. 

Wilf, what a load of tosh !!!! Total nonsense, what restaurants do you visit?

Restaurants are quite willing to give a meal away free and they give away the cheaper meal not the more expensive and yes they may not make a profit from it but they will probably not loses money, they make it the profit by selling alcohol.

I guess you must be thinking that a good restaurant will stock two different types of food and when the order is sent through to the kitchen it will indicate that it is a "cheaper" meal, I don't think so.... Yes 2-4-1 meals have been around for a very long time and it is only badly run establishments that would ever cheapen the quality of the meal or the portion. this would not be good as they would hope for you to return and tell your friends of how good it was.

We have eaten out on a regular basis for the past 20+ years and have often enjoyed promotions from restaurants and never once felt we were being cheated, well maybe once, that was probably the place you eat.

Two weeks ago we ate in a very good quality restaurant and the food bill was only £50 for two us, which was a real bargain for the food we ate, the drinks bill was far more.... But the house wine is £20+ a bottle

PS Glad to hear WCL got his offer and surprised that it would be considered that he would not get a good service, again, the girl would want a two hr booking to enjoy himself and visit again.
