When I said "rude", I wasn't referring to actually asking for the discount - I was however referring to the manner in which the punter asked and or behaved around requesting the discount. More specifically being outright rude, or displaying a generally bad attitude.

A great many girls consider it rude to be asked for a discount at all, even if it was done in the most polite manner possible! I'm all for a bargain, but even I think it's slightly pushing it to actively ask for a discount where the rate is known. However, in other scenarios, as previously discussed, I think it's open season, as long as any suggestion is made with respect.

I suspect that your attitude towards punters on this question is the exception, rather than the rule.

I am bloody sure that many girls who ask £600 for an overnighter would think twice before they turned down £500 ----------- of course they would not want their "sisters" to know about it though.   :angelgirl:

I'd tend to agree with that, there is a huge variation in what is advertised and assuming the service is actually on offer the difference is nonsense IMO. In many cases the hourly rates are similar. Never booked an overnight but if I did it would be with a girl I'd already seen and in those circumstances suggesting a rate I was comfortable with would be acceptable in my view.

I think any discount as a regular should come from the Pro$$ie. Don't think I'd offer a rate less than that advertised and tend to stick with girls who offer a competitive rate in the first place.

I don't particularly see the distinction. Bartering is bartering....

Don't you mean haggling?  Bartering is swapping stuff.

Here's a lesson in haggling... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3n3LL338aGA


A Polish girl observed that a regular should get a better deal than a first timer, whether its with a hairdresser or any other provider, she herself is as good as her word. I get a better deal from all regulars, and thats how it should be in the sex industry. You are really paying a high price for seeing her nude etc the first time, in the case of the pole, she viewed 3 visits, as constituting regular. I would never try to bargain on the first visit, I am a half hour man, so it would be absurd. Once a girl has done it for pay, she is prepared, with the right guy, to do it for a realistic price. Admittedly many punters visit a girl only once, and punt once a month, but those of us who do this every few days, have to find a strategy to avoid bankruptcy.

I have noticed a lot of girls lately offering prices ending in 9 pounds, for example £79 for the hour as opposed to 80, I have wondered if anyone would ever bother asking for the pound change or even turn up with the right money and pay with some coins

That was to adjust for the temporary reduction in VAT as part of Quantative Easing a couple of years back and they all forgot to change it back. Just think of the odd quid as a tip as you might at the barber who charges 9.50.  :)

I have often given fiver and five pound coins for a handjob.

As for the dogma of 'well I only go for 30 minutes so its simply ridiculous to haggle' is not my thinking. Not at all....this would be a good time to haggle.

Everything is up for negotiation.

Even 15 minute quickies would be negotiable....but as I'm not into them can't say how low I'd opt for.

This is particularly relevant for regulars.......and a friendly persona.

Funnily enough some first-timers are of the opinion they should receive discount, on the basis they will become regulars "I'll put a lot of business your way" is another line too.........

Do many of us do this? I've had a degree of success and am tempted to start trying my luck on every enquiry. I think there are ways of doing it that will be more successful than others.

Also, ever lost out on a punt because the pro$$ie has been so offended (as they state they will be) because you asked?

In many instances in life (cars, houses, etc) a price is set with a degree of bargaining expected. If I want £4000 for my car I will list it at £5000. Do pro$$ies do this?

I dont haggle on hour punts as i only punt with those WGs who prices i have no problem paying.

If i fancy a longer punt i have politely haggled and got a deal many times and with regulars many over the years have offered a discount without me asking.

If i was interested in overnighters i would haggle as the possible savings would be worth it.

Of the party providers i go to, one offers a discount of £40 if you do 2 parties instead of 1 and the other is already at a rock bottom price of either £60 or £80 for 3 hours so no more discounts on offer. ;)

If I have seen a lady  more than once I would perhaps ask  for a dicounnt,
however my needs are more for a excellent service and the price is secondary.

As my point earlier, why risk unsettling a good thing for a few quid. Let it come from her.

To get my take on it. I will say when I saw the title I was seriously shocked, and thought it couldn't possibly be about what I am thinking its about. And it was.

I think its the one thing you should never do. I know it may work to get girls to reduce prices. But from what I understand its up there as numero uno on the do not do chart of punting, and second place on that don't ever do list would need to fly on Concorde at top speed for an hour to reach it.

That is just what I believe however from reading the many AW profiles.

However I do feel strongly that if a regular ups her prices she should not do it for you. This is something that got me inundated with abuse from the Escorts at the other place though. As there was a situation where a regular upped prices and wanted to charge her regular the increased price.

They all thought that was totally ok, and likened it to Restaurants and Tesco's putting up prices.

I think asking a girl to drop prices is going to ensure you get a bad appointment if its your first one. Or her no longer wanting to see you if she is your regular.

I agree if it only involves a few quid ------- the example I gave earlier, £100 reduction on a £600 overnighter is not exactly a few quid.
Can someone explain to me what is so offensive about negotiating rates with prostitutes.  ????

My comments really relate to a regular, if I'm happy paying say 100 I'm not going to ask for 10 off as it's not worth potentially getting her back up. That said, I would expect that I'd have already judged if that was likely anyway. If she wants to retain her Punters then TBH (IMO) it would pay in the long run to have thought about herself. Just find girls that have a rate and service that you (not you you specifically of course) are comfortable with.

As for negotiating in general, like most things some will and some wont. Choose one you want to Punt and she doesn't and you enquire it could have an adverse effect on her attitude. It's a lottery if you're going in cold.

As for discounts -

No it doesn't automatically make someone an evil bastard for asking, of course not, but I think there are a few things to take into consideration which might be counter-productive

* Do you want to see a particular lady or just anyone who will fit into your criteria? If it's a particular lady then asking for a discount may backfire if she then refuses to see you at all, but if you are not looking for anyone in particular then you could keep trying until you got a 'best price'

* So she agreed to a discount? great. But bear in mind she may (rightly or wrongly, not debating that!) resent working for less than what she usually gets and will therefore not give as good a service. If your boss/employer cut your wages, would you give more or less to the job in turn? think about it.

* The possibility (if making a booking with advance notice) that if someone else books and will be paying the full rate, then she will simply cancel or no-show you. 

I don't accept discounts for the sole reason that I require to make a certain amount each day which is very fixed,and I only have a couple of hours a day free to work because of my other job. So the fixed amount must be made - 20 less isn't going to cut it. If I worked full-time then I'd probably agree to a discount from someone I'd seen before if they were a stress-free no hassle booking. I used to do this with one regular when I was full time - he got a £15 discount because he came to see me regularly and came on time, clean, caused no problems, was fun to talk to etc. I agreed to give him a discount because I'd rather have seen a 'safe bet' then an unknown who could potentially be problematic (ie turning up late, not being discreet in the corridor, trying to stay well over time).

I think discounts are for regular clientele.

If a lady or punter does a no-show be it at agreed full price or agreed bargain basement price that is wholly unacceptable, disrespectful by the punter and unprofessional by the lady.

I didn't say it wasn't. In the real world though it is highly likely she will choose the booking which pays the most. Ask JRC, he says this all the time  :D

Erm, they told me. One had a very high sex drive and was selective with clients (independent lady advertised in free-ad mags - semi-pro I guess) and the other had lived a very protected life and wanted to explore her sexuality (agency escort). Both ladies rank in my all time top 5 service providers. Of all the ladies I've seen, I remember them two vividly.
