Thread: Indy vs. Agency - Background Sounds

    Indy vs. Agency - Background Sounds

    This is something that I just remembered for some reason. I had a session one evening at SU at the end of February, and not long after we had finished the FS, a loud and ugly male sound could be heard from the next room, followed shortly afterwards by the end-of-session timer. We were both startled to say the least, and I joked about that person beating the buzzer - made her laugh which was nice. Had I heard that sound during the FS it would probably have been difficult for me to maintain the necessary..um..solidity to complete the endeavour. Not good. I've heard female sounds from other rooms a couple of times at VIP which is fine and normal (still off-putting but not when it's my SP) compared to that horrible walrus sound that came from next door at SU. The radio was on at these sessions though obviously not loud enough. I prefer softer music, but not anymore at these places. Has anyone had a session at an agency and was distracted or put-off by background sounds? One advantage of visiting Indies is the quietness and privacy they afford, but agencies are more reliable and consistent - especially in Victoria with its limited supply of good Indies.

    Yeap, big downside of agencies (although I'm relying more and more on them because of how unreliable the Indies seem to be nowadays). The radio especially. I've had the bloody radio talking about Trump or playing country music! (put me completely off my game). I've been tempted to bring my iPod/iPhone and a portable speaker, but I'm afraid I'd look like a gomer...

    Thanks for the feedback, Rob. I had to get used to the radio for fear of what I might hear! - but that evening it wouldn't have been loud enough. Since I visit mainly in the early-mid afternoons it's usually quiet. BOA has Stringray on cable so it's continuous music without those blasted commercials (you can choose what you want). I have never heard sounds from the other room there, and they have that room on the 3rd by itself.

    You can ask to turn the radio off.

    I asked to turn the radio off at the start of a session when I heard commercials and my SP at CCE said we might hear the people in the next room. So I asked her to please leave it on, remembering the walrus sound! You mentioned hearing neighbours earlier - I never heard people from next door in my wood frame condo in Brentwood Bay, and just faint movement from the person above (quiet fellow though - like me).

    Sorry, I'll try to keep it down next time.
