    perhapse casper is right that ultimately consumers set the price, since the price is always set by the demand and supply law... it's one thing to not buy, and lower the demand hence lower the price. but it's another to just ask to lower the price... and keep demanding... and demanding... and demanding...

    answer: NO. as the rates went up, my wallet followed, even when the cuts were offered. sometimes i gave more just because i think she deserved it. am i rich? hell NO!! i just allocate the funds "exclusively" and exclude the others.

    If a provider has a "regular" that has seen her numerous times, who she genuinely likes, and who has always treated her well in the past - I don't think it's that unreasonable for her to cut him a break once in a while.... although I doubt that many providers would agree with me.

    But to use a very poor analogy - if you go to the same bar every day, once in a while you get thrown a free drink. It's just good business sense. (OK, I said it was a poor analogy, but it's late and I'm tired).

    In several years of hobbying, I had a provider ONCE refuse my tip (it was in a massage joint where the tip was her take... still had to pay the house fee). It was around the holidays and she said it was her gift to me. I thought it was unbelievably cool of her.

    Is it tacky to bargain with a provider? Absolutely. But it all depends on who the provider is and if you really care what she thinks of you beyond the business at hand. I haven't done it myself, but can't fault anyone for trying.

    Idle time without money is not very enjoyable. In fact, it's a lot more stressful than working.

    I consider U.G. the Kelly Blue Book for Providers. That's one of many ways a person can arrive at a fair market price. But in all things, the consumer ultimately sets the market price by buying or not buying goods/services. (supply and demand definitely applies here, notwithstanding the animalistic urges :cool: )

    the longer the cars are kept on the lot and don't sell, the more money the dealer is losing. so one can take that and use it in the bargaining strategy. on the other hand, the longer the provider is not working, she's not making money, but she's not losing money either, like you say there is no cost or overhead. for all we know, she could just use the "idle time" to enjoy life outside of business. that my friend, gives you little ground to bargain with. and don't assume the economy is slowing down the business and all providers are desperate for money.

    So when you have a long-term exclusive thing with an escort you pay her what you paid on day 1?

    If she cuts you a break then doesn't that imply that her time is of variable worth depending on the circumstances such as: I know you, I don't know you but I haven't seen anyone today, I'm going on vacation next week and I need the extra money, or xxx?

    when you bargain with a car dealer, you research the bluebook, find out the the product cost, and then base your bargain on that. but when you go to a provider, what do you base your bargain on? "errrr...cus me no dinero"??

    so perhapse my concept is very flaw, but you have to excuse me for that, because i just came back down from cloud nine, didn't have my thought all together just yet. but you are missing the point my friend, all i am trying to say is that, bargaining with a provider is just so fucking tacky. like i said... can't pay then don't play...

    That concept is very flawed.

    Cars and Car dealers have a product cost, as well as very high overhead. So their bargaining positions is limited. Go too low on a bargain and lose money.

    Girls, providers have almost no cost, no overhead. Every penny made is a penny earned. Idle time is no money whatsoever. So, if there is anyone who should bargain, it's a provider.

    for the longest time, i couldn't understand how can some people go up to a provider and try to bargain with her rates. like i always said "can't pay, don't play". today i was talking about cars with a friend, and she's a provider, and it just darn on me now... cars and girls, and sometime guys get confused between those two...

    cars, car dealers, do bargain.
    girls, providers, don't bargain.
