since the number of girls seems to have exploded recently, should not the fees have been dramaticaly reduced to reflect this? The opposite seems to be true in many cases with girls increasing their fees!!
I have not noticed many Indies raising their prices myself, i have some Establishments though, some that were already uncompetitive price wise like for like with Indies in the same area.
A WG sets the prices she chooses to, punters will decide if to book her or not. The number of WGs she has as competition she has no control over of course but there being more doesnt automatically mean ALL prices will drop.
In real terms allowing for inflation my punting has gone down in price in the last 10 years, there are a number of reasons for that but few other things cost me less now than then.
Some WGs also have a minimum price they wont go under, mainly Brits in my own experiences, rightly or wrongly they arent as flexible on price as their EE counterparts in particular. Once again punters will and do decide if they are busy or not.
What must be borne in mind in my view is there are a significant number of punters punting who equate cost with how good a WG will be and who know nothing of forums like this. They punt in ignorance and some at least pay more than they might do if they were aware that their really is no correlation between price and how good a WG is and if they knew of sites like this.
