    Exactly. Take the calls if you get them and save your money for "rainy days" like this

    It is easy. Expenses have gone up for everyone. I don't know where they are getting the inflation rate figures from, but it doesn't reflect my reality. Insurance is more and property taxes have gone up. These drive an increase in goods and services all above the official inflation rate. Unfortunately, most incomes aren't keeping pace. When I look to cut back my cash flow, the first thing to get chopped are luxuries and indulgences. SPs fall into that category. I am not complaining because I am well aware that you have to pay to play. I doubt that there is room for most providers to lower their fees by much as they have expenses as well. What will happen is that eventually there will be less girls providing the services we are used too. The trend of the 15 min minimum service for fast dollars (Pay fewer dollars for a lot less service) is a reflection of the new reality.

    While I agree with your post, if it comes down to this, I will hang up my skates so to speak. A 15 minute date for me would be such a waste. Both sexually and financially.

Some ladies who were 250 two years ago are 350 now. You'd think if things were that slow, there'd be more specials or rates of this nature would start to come down.
    Your analysis is faulty, because when things are slow some of the girls will increase their rates rather than bring the rates down because they expect to see less clients during slow times, but also expect the same lifestyle. These girls are the ones who believe in working as little as possible and earning as much as possible at the same time. Most people believe that to earn more, you have to work more - in other words, they are not lazy and have a good work ethic.

    Business stalls then prices fall. We're witnessing a market correction and some will raise their prices in denial while others lower their prices to survive. The correction is parallel to the housing market and will continue in a city where we produce nothing and create wealth on paper with inflated house prices.

    I was looking at getting money back on taxes this year, but now I'm facing a $3000 repair bill on my car. Before taxes.
    Driving a Euro-Sedan is nice, but the maintenance and upkeep goes up accordingly.
    That, and the increase in the cost of everything else means there hasn't been anything left over for playtime in a while.

    Paying yourself 1st and putting away a bit each month goes a long way I'll tell you. If I had real poor money management, I'd be up shit creek without a paddle. Which reminds me.....

    I have no clue how married people in Vancouver, who have kids make it . Is it...both of them working to make ends meet, credit card maxing and then paying the minimum only each month?
    Have you thought about setting up monthly payments for property taxes and/or car insurance instead of trying to pay it in one lump sum? That is how I do mine and it makes it a little easier to manage. I'm in Alberta, not sure if things are different in B.C.

    My sense is that when the economy is weak additional ladies enter the market as the barriers to becoming an escort are low and many, sometimes naive, civilians think the work and money are easy. I agree with BC-Babe that excellent service and taking care of your regulars is the key to success, especially in down times. And I also can confirm that BC-Babe, puts her mouth where her money is as she offers as good a bj as you will ever find.

    Now that's a great recommendation, if I ever heard one! When the economy is struggling, good service will keep you in business, while the poor competition struggles...

    xaviera hollander said it best in her 1960's book, 'the happy hooker'

    "...when stocks go up, cocks go up..."

    and right now stocks are definitely not going up!
    believe nothing of what you hear, and only half of what you actually see - question EVERYTHING...
