I've been reading this forum for a while but this is my first post. I am hoping for some advice/reassurance relating to my tentative steps into this alluring world.
Being based in Soho for work, over the last few years I've allowed myself to go from sex shops, to strip clubs to massage parlours. Until this week, the massage places I've been have offered nothing more than hand relief, and this has cost somewhere between £40-£60 on top of the cost of the massage (around £60 for hour).
Using this forum I deduced that Chinese massage parlours were a better bet for less cost and more service. This turned out to be true and this week I found myself in a dodgy looking basement, with a bed pressed up against the wall, a masseuse in stockings beginning "oil? yeah, will need some oil" and calling me "darling" all the time. Seemed I'd finally arrived at somewhere where massage was just the official line!
At the end she offered extras with "tell me how much you want to spend and I'll say what I'll do". This was immediately exciting but I wanted something specific. Just a hand job, but her naked and as much touching of her as possible.
Here's the thing. She wanted £40 for the hand job, another £60 to take off her top (and I could touch her body) and another £20 to remove skirt. In the end, £120 and she was still wearing knickers and saying it would be MORE if I wanted to suck her tits or if I wanted body-to-body.
So my question is whether I'm doing something wrong regarding the cost negotiation because this seems very high. I know, for instance, I could go to an independent escort specialising in erotic massage for the same cost for 90 minutes.
I only hesitate to go to an escort because of my nerves. I feel I need to be spontaneous and making a booking could cause days of anxiety at this stage. I would much prefer to visit a massage parlour, if only I felt the costs were more reasonable. And this girl was perfect for my needs, pretty, sweet, good technique etc. No other reason to go elsewhere.
Any advice would be appreciated. Please be gentle!
