Am I reading something wrong in this thread? I thought it had to do with being stood up by a "friend", and the ramifications of the relationship. Discounts? Didn't think this was p4p. And as far as demanding discounts from a friend. When I do business with friends, non sex business that is, I NEVER demand discounts, I expect them. If I don't receive a discount, so be it. However, if I don't receive a discount, say if I'm buying a camera from a buddy who owns a camera store, I will hesitate to purchase from him again. It's funny, when I do business with a friend, I never negotiate. When I do business as a consumer, I negotiate hard. I don't have friends as sex workers so I pay the price and never discuss money. When I have sex with "friends" who's discussing money anyway. Am I missing something here?
