I noticed recently that one of the girls on Adultwork had increased her prices to £100 for 30 minutes and £130 for the hour ----------- she has now reduced them to £80 for 30 minutes and £120 an hour.
Why do you think she reduced them. ????

1) She felt guilty charging so much.
2) Her phone stopped ringing.

It's obviously no:1, with Christmas looming she feels sorry for us guys,
just glad she saw the error of her ways.  :)

You could be right, the cynic in me thought it could be number 2.
Expensive girls often have dusty phones.  :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Actually she was so short of sex that she was running out of batteries and found getting paid for sex was better than popping out to Tesco to buy the batteries.

I had a conversation with a girl about her rates recently when she offered me a lower rate, a tenner off, what a nice surprise.  She said the Christmas season was often a bit slower and punters had other places to spend their money so she does this every year.   It's kinda a Christmas special - hey, it's a tenner.  I think punters should say "thank you".  I certainly did.

That one isn't likely to need new Duracells, yesterday at least ;-)

She might just have been fiddling about with her rates, and decided she was happier with the lower ones - and no other reason at all.

Well, you would say that wouldn't you ????????
Happier with lower rates ------- :D :lol: :D :lol:

I think we've covered this ground before.  Elasticity of demand varies with season, location and an individual's service offering.  When I punt I'll choose a good looker, the right services and a convenient location.  A tenner or even 20 quid won't make me turn away from a prossie that has the right combination.

If a tenner made a difference to me, I'd get a better job or save the lot by investing in a box of Kleenex ;-)

Honestly do not believe that market forces apply to punting.If they did then prices would be much lower than they are now as there seems to be a huge surplus on the supply side of the equation.I'm not complaining though,as I was payimg £120 per hour five years ago and still paying the same now. :)

If it's the Prossie I think you are referring to you can also get a £10 discount if you book at least a day in advance which indicates business is slow in my book. I have noticed that a few girls in my 'hotlist' have made similar reductions and introduced a few 'Special Offers' at different times. Sign of the times.

Number 2 then and £100 for half an hour is nonsense when that will get you an hour with a perfectly reasonable EE girl offering the same if not more for that price.  ;)

£100 for a half hour is for those with more money than time.  Unfortunately I find myself running short of both too often ;-)

That much for a half hour sez pretty clearly that the girl's not interested in a fast fuck n suck.

Yes, you have guessed correctly.
It is not the first time she has tried to push the boundaries with her prices -------- and come unstuck. ;)

Very true, a lot of girls will have a very small margin between 30 and 60 minutes, yet she will still take shorter bookings which illustrates what I think is the point of the original post. Greed that hasn't paid off this time cos of the current economic situation where many have reduced their rate. Maybe the Prossie concerned should do a 'David Ginola' and advertise 'L'Oréal'.  :)

It was a short-lived change then, still not low enough to tempt me at the moment unless I were to book ahead. I also noticed that 'regulars' may get 'special fees' and 'elite services'.  ;)

I don't have a problem with that, I am sure many girls have "special arrangements" for regulars. ;)

  She said the Christmas season was often a bit slower and punters had other places to spend their money so she does this every year. 

I saw this being discussed elsewhere and the girls were saying that Christmas is a busy time ------- I can't see that being right, many punters are family men and Christmas can be an expensive time of the year.
One very silly young lady said that you would not expect your plumber to reduce his prices at Christmas, not the best analogy, if you have a burst pipe you are in no position to negotiate.

No way Christmas can be a busy time for WGs - Given that the UK shuts down for ten days the sensible WGs fly off to warmer climes to boost their tan and pull a few off the beaches.

You are right that the week between Christmas and New Years is dead except for family matters (and shopping) but WGs have family, too, so they are off on hols or doing the family thing, too. 

I'd expect girls to charge EXTRA (OMG!) for service during the traditional holiday down time ;-)  Supply and demand - market forces - if there is a scarcity of girls, the ones left might find a post Christmas flurry of activity (especially good way to spend the money cards from non-creative gift givers).

But the run up to Christmas is often replete with Christmas bonuses and a bit of self-direct generosity... afterall you don't expect your partner to give you a Punting Gift Certificate under the tree... and maybe the thought of being cooped up with the in-laws etc for a week means that a punter needs to sow his seed ahead of the family time ahead.

I surely shall be punting right up to the 23rd.

Some of the Eastern European ladies may go home for Christmas but to say there will be a shortage of prostitutes is simply not true ---------- obviously it depends where you live, my catchment area is within the M25 and I am confident there will be more than enough WG's to go round, although very few are available on Christmas day.

Parlours can be fun on Christmas Eve after the ladies have had a few drinks!

JRC you sound really happy this girls business is maybe down and she has had to reduce her prices with your winking etc. Sounds really petty and yukky to me why you would be happy at someone else's misfortune. But hey , just my opinion.

Yes, JRC, are you always such a callous b******d? Is schadenfreude your middle name? Why can’t you be like me? I always insist on paying at least fifty percent over and above what a prostitute asks me for, and I visit a hooker twice a week whether I feel randy or not. I see it as my duty as a second class citizen (or a man as we used to be called).

Your attitude does not surprise me, prostitutes always stick together, that is why we call them the "sisterhood".

The girl did not have to reduce her prices, she merely returned them to what they were in the first place, greed got the better of her and she came unstuck, I have seen this happen many times over the years.
