Author Topic: Some observations about prices  (Read 6228 times)

Online NIK

I thought I'd start a new topic with my observations about prices as it appears to have taken over my 'retirement' thread.

Now, as with anything else, we would all like to pay as little as we can for a quality service/product. At the same time women would like to charge as much as they can. The difference between the good girls is that they at least seem as if they are enjoying it as well, whilst the bad ones make it clear they hate it and they are only in it for the money.

Personally I have not been that concerned about prices in the past, many times paying £200 and occasionally £250, although I would certainly not pay £300+. However like anyone else I would be delighted if I could get a quality service for £100 or less.

Ultimately a woman can charge what she wants and good luck to her. However whether she gets the business or not is another matter.

Amy, who I have seen more than any other wg, has always charged £200 an hour. She said she believes she's worth it (and does give an excellent service) and wouldn't dream of doing it for less.
Now whether this is true or not I only have her word.
Furthernore she doesn't seem very busy and admits to not seeing many clients. Again whether this is true or not I don't know.
However, and this is the crucial difference, she has a full time job, and told me she just needs a couple of clients a week in order to cover her rent.
So although she may suffer from Jim's 'dusty phone syndrome' it appears she isn't unduly bothered and would rather go without rather than lower her prices.
I know if I was a wg and could see two clients a week at £200 rather than four at £100 or even £150, I would choose the former as it is easier. It would also help keep me fresher and enthusiastic for those clients. I have seen Amy over forty times and her service has never been anything less than totally professional every time.
I realise that not all wgs are in her position and some have no other income to rely on, but there must be many others who also have another job and the prostitution is just for the little extras. Although these women are probably in a minority there is therefore little chance of them lowering their prices.
Indeed, some of those who have other jobs have often been the best as they are in it because they enjoy sex as well as for the money.
Shania, a Sheffield woman who I saw just a couple of times but is in my top twenty, fell into this category. She had a full time job but said she escorted as she enjoyed sex, and on the evidence of the couple of times I saw her she sure did!  :D

I don't usually get involved in debates about prices because it seems so simple to me: Girls charge whatever they want, punters pay whatever they want. End of.

However, to continue NIK's theme about part time WGs: I saw a 40 year-old indie once who worked in a call centre and lived alone. She just wanted some extra cash so she did some evening appointments at her home. I got the feeling that she enjoyed the sex and the companionship as well as the cash. During our appointment she was keen to chat and get to know me, then have an extended session in the bedroom where everything was on the menu (including anal at her request), then back down stairs to recover and have a chat. When I asked what I owed her, she said, "Pay whatever you want." It was a very good punt. Shame she hadn't been better looking.  :(

A well established girl with a good reputation can get away with charging £200 an hour, unknown girls who try to get that rate would end up with a silent phone.   ;)

Not good looking and 40 years old, that is not the sort of lady I am seeking.   ;) ;)

Just to clarify, "Shame she hadn't been better looking" does not mean she looked like a pig with false eyelashes and red lipstick. She was reasonably attractive, but - as you know - few 40 year-olds can compete with gorgeous 20 year-olds. We are fortunate in this country that prostitution attracts some fine examples of the fairer sex, but I doubt a 20 year-old would have the same outlook as the lady I mentioned.

A lady I like used to charge £200ph.  Recently she put her prices up to £250.  I have seen her several times but not written a review.  Last visit I asked her if I could write one and she said if I did I should say what a miserable time I had had because she would prefer I put people off as she is far busier than she is happy with, thus the price rise.  She certainly doesn't have a dusty phone.  Last time, she apologised for what she felt was a below par performance due to things being so "hectic" for her at the moment but I was perfectly satisfied and didn't feel she had anything to apologise for.  She is a student so she has other work but, as far as I am aware, no other source of income.  I imagine her prices will go up again as the last rise doesn't seem to have done enough.  Of course, I would have prefered her to keep her prices where they were (at least) but she is very skilled so I can well imagine how most people who have seen her once would want to see her again (as I did) and so she would get increasingly busy.  I guess eventually she will price herself out of my market but hopefully not too soon.

£250 an hour and she can't handle the volume of business.   ?????????

I might see a girl once for 200 and have paid more in the past, but after that first time i doubt i will pay much again, exotic ruby was one, £230 for the hour, lovely sexy and great kisser, but the price not worth it, then i found emma £100 an hour plus £20 for travel, wow you just get lucky i guess and she gets better with every visit, 200 plus just gets to much mind if kimberly cox came back on the scene id pay her just for another go :)

She didn't say she was busier than she can handle, she said she was busier than she is happy with - which is rather a different thing.

I don't think it would be useful to focus this debate on one particular girl.  Best to keep things more in the abstract.

It's relatively simple, and depends on what a woman wants from the industry.

Those who already have another source of income they are happy with or are working towards being financially solvent, will only want to prostitute for "spending or saving money". All their basic bills and even minor luxuries are already covered so they will not care much if they have a 'dusty phone'.

Firstly you would work out how many hours you are available to work (as a prostitute), then how many you would like to work (thankfully in this country unless you have an addiction to feed, you wouldn't have to work as a prostitute for very long if you didn't choose it, just to survive), and maximise your income for the work you do within those times.

So for example, say I am a student and available to work 4 hours a day monday to friday (as I have classes another 4 hours and studying etc in the evenings) but don't want to work weekends. I would want to have 30 mins between clients to clean up etc, do admin etc. So therefore I'd be looking to see 2-3 clients in that time. If I priced my services far too high I may only get a couple of bookings per week and they may be outwith my time frames. If I priced my services too low I would get too many bookings to deal with an much more than I could see within my working times so would end up with less money. So I would experiment and find the highest rate I can get whilst still "filling my spaces". If I charged say £300 an hour it's unlikely I would get bookings in my 4 hour time slot every day of the week. But if I charged say £130-£140 I would get at least my quota of 2-3 a day at times I'm available where I live. Thus making my £300 per day target or exceeding it over the course of a week. Whereas if I charged £300 an hour I'd probably only get one booking a week I would estimate. (by the way this is just an example, not based on myself at all). It's simple income maximisation.

Some of you are always going on about "let's lower prices, you are stupid to pay that price mate, if we stuck together and refused to pay over X amount then prostitutes would be forced to lower prices", but can I ask what you guys would do if similarly all the prostitutes themselves got together and said "We are not charging less than £200 per hour" (sort of like an organised strike!) ? Would you give up punting and have wanks instead? go for webcams/phone chats? or all get together and organise a 'strike' yourselves and go without sex (or go without the kind of sex you want or the physical attributes you require)?

say I am a student

Why do so many pro$$ies pretend to be students, the reality is if a girl is a student why is she wasting her time studying on a worthless course (Hair and beaty, media etc) when she could be selling her hole when she is at her most marketable (young and fit)

I saw a girl the other week who went on and on about the degree she was doing, the problem was I knew about the subject she was talking about and mentioned a few points, it was immediately evodent that she had not even read a basic book on the subject, let alone study for a degree  :scare:

The most i have paid 121 in recent years is £180 an hour to punt with Keira Pharrell and Alex ex of The Bunny Lounge, both WGs very well worth the price and in Keiras case i had punted with her at a party sometime before which she had since left for £100 for 4 hours, over half of that time as it turned out being me, her and another WG so i knew i rated her highly.

A WG has to be someone i very highly rate for me to go above £150 an hour as there are so many good WGs at or under that rate. On the back of a £70 for the hour punt that i rated 7/10 and was recommended to me by a punter i know personally and another by PM i will be continuing to seek VFM as i see it.

Eh....Ok whatever you say James  :music:.

I have asked you before what your chosen vocation is and just how successful you yourself are at it, since you seem to think other's choices of career etc are substandard to your own 'superior' way to earn a living? By the way I didn't study Hair or Media, but know a few very successful people who did (one a prossie who shock horror - opened her own successful business!).

Any talk of all punters sticking together is pure fantasy, most dont have a clue about sites like this and i imagine many punt like i used to, alone and kept it to myself. The same goes for WGs, they wouldnt all stick together either. Competition is king in this free market and long may it continue.

If the fantasy scenario you mention happened i would be buying extra boxes of tissues and getting the porn on wanking and of course making a visit to the Woodford-Grab-A-Granny :scare: night among other events. ;)

I didn't suggest you did study hair and beauty, I was using an example, it is evident from your pictures you did not do such a course  :cool:

Forgot to add in my opening post the obvious point that £200 or even £500 might be a lot for most of us on here, but it is very small change for many punters.
Unlike Jimmy, if I was a millionaire and money was no object, I would  pay whatever a girl charged if I really wanted to see her.
However I would also still see girls at £200 an hour or less and would still be aware that their service might be equally as good if not better!

Very true, but the vast majority of punters are normal guys and not footballers on £50K a week.

Oh you are so funny  :lol: I just knew you were going to say something like that and not answer my question, such is your predictability! That's why I wrote just "hair" instead of your original "hair and beauty" - in an attempt to minimize your opportunity for insulting people. But it obviously didn't work as you are hell-bent on being that way anyway. And there I was actually thinking I was making a valid contribution to the thread. Never mind, off out now to enjoy the sunshine  :)
