    Lisa the majority of Indies I know ask for money after the session! usually the agency girls ask for money up front!!

    $$$ this is an easy one

    gentlemen
    just as i believe ozzy put it you should have already discussed payment with the provider before coming over so the amount is already known so not to make it uncomfortable you can place the money on a table before the session starts and walla no probs but it should always be paid upfront

    lots of love lisa

    at the start of the date i leave the $$$ in an envelope with the girl's name on it in a conspicuous place where she will see it. this way she is free to pick it up either in the beginning or the end...her choice. and generally i do not tip escorts unless they did something that was way over, above and beyond the call of duty. i used to see a lady that would drive 2 hr through nyc am rush hr traffic to see me. i used to give her a tip to show her my appreciation for her effort.

    For certain select ladies, not only will I pay in advance, I will give them an advance for the coming month.
    I find that this is a way to remove money from the setting and give everyone a chance to relax.

    I agree. I rarely tip independents with extra cash. But I will bring a bottle of wine, flowers, or something different, such as candy. Since independents do not share their commission with the house, I would rather contribute to the ambiance than plunk down extra cash, which often seems crass.

    Tips

    I generally do not tip independents. I may give them a gift but not money.
    In houses, that's another story. I like to tip in advance or at least let the girl know in advance that if the service is good a tip will be generous.

    Thanks for the info. I have only given one gift and that was to a special woman. I think she wears it everyday I guess I got lucky.

    Guy "there are certain 'gifts that keep on giving'"

    Would that gift come with batteries. hehe

    No, a gift and a tip are different things.

    They can achieve the same thing, I guess, but a gift is given just because you want to give something. A tip is to be remembered as a good client and to reward great service.

    Frankly, most providers prefer cash to presents. The odds of you buying something she actually wants are pretty slim. If you buy a gift, get something light-hearted and inexpensive, yet nice. I used to have hints on my web site - I listed Godiva chocolates as one of the things I loved in life. That way, I got lots of Godiva chocolates. These are affordable, as you can buy a variety of box sizes, and they are nice to give because they're pretty. Clients who get a kick out of giving gifts were satisfied, and I had something I liked.

    Gifts aren't that important, though. If you give a gift, it's sweet, but I don't think many providers really care and we feel TERRIBLE when you buy something we don't like. We feel bad that you've wasted the money. At least, I felt kinda guilty.

    Is a gift just a gift or does that configure in the tip?

    I never ask for it in if I know the gentleman. If it is a first time client. Its spoken about before we meet so I do not have to ask, as well as I.D. I direct newbies to a place where he can learn the card or envelope on table way.
