    That is, what I'd expect to see in the nature of lowered prices isn't a reduction in the prices at existing mps agencies, but rather working girls moving to houses where the rates are lower (and business reputably higher).

    Indies set their own rates and are more like business owners than agency / mp girls who are more like employees.

    Actually the point of my poll was to illustrate that it's extremely hard to cut someone's wages unless that someone is you.

    Yes, then they become comfortable dishing to their boyfriends who just want them to open their legs and shut the other trap.

    nope. but this isn't the first time formerly open minded men have gone stone age on me. i think the steady supply of excellent sex makes them bold.

    If you do not return, prices will certainly go down.

    no fag hag i. in fact, i think it's dangerous for straight women to hang out with gay men too much. (leads to too much dishing and not enough getting laid.) as for evegirl, well i miss her too. you know i thought hombre would want to get DOWN, but now, he doesn't even want me hanging around here. ironic, no?

    Well, the joint was rocking
    Going round 'n' round
    Yeah, reeling and a-rocking
    What a crazy sound
    Well, they never stopped rocking
    'Til the moon went down

    Well it sounded so sweet
    I had to take me a chance
    I rose out of my seat
    And had to dance
    I started moving my feet
    And clapping my hands

    About twelve o'clock
    When the place was packed
    The front doors were locked
    I said the place was packed
    When the police knocked
    Those doors flew back

    But it kept on rocking [etc.]

    About twelve o'clock
    Around lock up time
    Well, the doors were locked
    Said the place was packed
    When the police knocked
    Those doors flew back

    Although you often see the underground parties described around here as "lockdowns" or "locked doors", they aren't really. The classic idea of a lockdown was that the place opened at a certain time, filled up with customers for a certain time period, and then the doors were locked, and no one came in or out. the concepty was that it was more secure from being busted if folks weren't flowing in and out.

    (PS I thought you were a fag hag? You're going to lose your card over this).

    Aren't the legal brothels in NV priced that way?

    I even remember reading somewhere that they make a ton of money selling just the 'menus'.

    Thread Hijack -- Sorry, Nobody Respond To This

    Two Kinds Of Extras At Strip Clubs

    1. Like at ASSCons, Passions, Dumbartons, etc. You negotiate with the stripper beforehand for the precise services you'll get and the precise price point you'll pay. I hate that shit. Not ambiguously deceptive enough for me.

    2. Like at Paradise, VIP, etc. You get a room and what happens happens. Then you tip accordingly. I much prefer this. The ambiguous deceptiveness of it is just what I'm after.
