Author Topic: Can't Add Up  (Read 1959 times)

Offline roadie

There seems to be a rising number of girls on AW who can't seem to add up. I've emailed one today for a possible meet who advertises:

Rates         ½ Hour      1 Hour   2 Hours   3 Hours   4 Hours   Overnight
Out Calls   70      110             250             330             400          780
The above rates are specified in GBP (British Pound).

I asked her why she was £110 for one hour yet 2 hours (which you'd expect to be double the one hour costs and usually less than double) were £250. I said "surely I would be better off booking you for 2 x 1 hour appointments?"

She could not see what I was getting at.

I raised this point on PN quite a while ago just to find out if there were any valid reasons behind it but the girls on there got quite defensive and I got a few snotty pm's saying it was their business what they charged and if I didn't like it....

I have found a couple of more extreme price differences with one girl charging £100 for one hour incall, and £240 for 2 hours.

Anyone have their own theories for this? Is it that they just can't add up, after all, some can't even spell their own profile name correctly or the name of the town they work from.

IMO it's because they haven't thought about it at all, just made up some rates, particularly new prossies. If you're told it is their business what they charge and if you don't like it .... then I suspect if you check back a few days later things may well have changed. ;)

Looking at the quoted rates, maybe not so thick after all.

I now remember being told by a wg that she does  not like two hour bookings. She can fit a lot into 1 hour, she can fit a lot into three hours with some 'downtime' but keeping it all bubbling along for two hours can be hard work.

If enough people all charge a high rate it creates marketing impact. I've seen this a few times on Adultwork. A group of prossies all suddenly appear, polished profiles and pictures, all charging a high rate. As if to say, "Those others are just cheap. You get what you pay for!" And of course, usually you don't.

I am not so sure about that. It seems to me that as some raise their prices, others join the market at a lower rate to exploit the resulting void at the bottom.
Also some will dramatically lower their rates when bidding on an AW reverse booking, suggesting that they have set their normal rates too high but don't want to be seen lowering them on their profiles.

A month or so back I got put on pre-mod for citing the poor quality of English (spelling and punctuation) of WGs on A*W*.  This was viewed as advertising AW.
But apart from the poor quality of maths - do punters take note of WGs use of the English language?
And I don't mean the horrible 'cum stuff your cock in my steaming cunt' sentences that some WGs seem to think attract punters.
e and oe.

If the text is original, seems sincere, yes that makes an impression. A lady has to be within my hotlist radar - age bracket, looks, price. That is the first common sense filter. Not in the sense of wow, more in the sense of 'she's not ruled out.' Then I look for plus points. I've booked girls occasionally on obscure things in their interview such as the girl who said firefly was her face tv series or a girl that mentioned an obscure fantasy that was the sort if thing I would come up (not for the booking, just as an indication of thinking along similar lines on some things. An awesome blog would maybe encourage me to stretch the envelope if it was a close call. I tend to view unoriginal ASCII art as a minus - just wastes my time - and bad sentence construction or lack of consistency between stated and generated ages puts me off a bit. A woman who can paint a clear buyers path scores a bonus.

I have no issues with ladies prices wether they charge 20 an hour or 2000 an hour, it is their choice as to how much they want to flog it for.


If she does half hours please PM me the details. :) $$

Some escorts say dont ask for a discount as its not welcome, and yet they offer a reduced price to regs, or when they are expecting the electric bill to arrive.

Wonder if you can get a discount at the end of the month when the rent is due??
And what about end-Jan and end-Jul when tax bills are to be paid?

They might offer but generally I find it's wasted time to ask. Just that it runs counter to the usual way of business in this country so you are immediately at a disadvantage. I have only bargained successfully on a couple of occasions in the UK (And I'm quite a good bargainer btw).

If I plan to write a good FR, I sometimes bring it up, saying I don't want to 'push so much business her way'* (with the FR) that I can't afford her when she inevitably puts her prices up. She may (and often has) say that they 'won't go up for you'. Reverse bids are another exception. But of course a lot of prossies would rather starve / go on the social than sell their fannies for less than they think they're worth.

Having said that, some do get a reality check. Start off advertising at double average rates cos they have a pretty face and are used to being able to grab any guy in a room. A month later, they realise it is business and advertise a price accordingly that people will pay.

Many prossies seem to think that for men (never for women lol) that if a guy fancies her, the next question is how much does he fancy her and therefore feel willing to pay. I fancied the hoots off a hotel receptionist recently and spent an hour chatting without going for the close. A few weeks later I find she does part-time escorting, unlisted. Naturally I booked her. She was nice. But I felt like saying to her that I fancied her as an escort to the tune of £90 - with a possible (but not guaranteed) repeat some time in the future. Had I dated her, I would have felt like spending a lot more time and attention and money. As would she would (I hope). There's a big difference between a five star coq-au-vin that you or your g/f or chef friend cooks or which you eat at Harvey Nicks: and the same piece of chicken served as fast food deep fried from the chippie.

No offence to the chicken. ;)


*Serious players will appreciate the value of phrasing and intonation with such words - this stuff applies more to non-pro interaction of course, but seductive chat makes prossies feel good and amenable sometimes too!

I thoght it would be all the WGs who would pick up on that sly aside!  Actually I should not have mentioned 'tax' but just
said 'big bills' to see how many WGs asked why big bills at the end of Jan and Jul!

Heh, class tactic that.

As for the original post, while it seems a bit strange from the offset, this could be a valid method of 'controlling' the type of bookings she gets as mentioned in another post already.

I can imagine 2 hour bookings feeling like years if there's no real connection between the punter and wg.

Personally, I think the old premise that a lot of girls are working as escorts is that they couldn't hack it in any other job is probably correct.Their arithmetical skills probably leave a lot to be desired,whereas their ability to bullshit when questioned on their "pricing strategy" will be degree class

Happens quite a lot in the NE section, makes you wonder how / why they find such old posts.

Now if I click on a thread at the top of the board, first thing I check is the date to see if it's current.

Possible explanation is people arriving from Google search brings up old threads in the results !
