I think the new format sucks. At least in the westender they let ppl advertise external web addresses. This week they also only have one agency ad. I wonder if they have aribitrarily decided to do that in order to increase individual ad placements. I only hope that the good gals who work at agencies like SU aren't being charged extra now....
The new policy on single girl ads is apparently to help stop underage prostitution under the guise of agencies. We personally think it is a cash grab. I am not aware of any agencies CL, SU, ER, IB or Victoria's Eden hiring underage girls for the purposes of prostitution. But as for the new policy, you have to roll with the punches. We wont be charging any extra fees to our ladies for advertising unless they want more than we are offering. And in that case its completly their choice. Happy ladies = happy clients. Right fellas
Every year monday mag comes up with some new dumb idea to shake things up. If it was an improvement I would understand but the only things improved are the profit margin (they hope).
I think some wanker decided "hey if every agency has 20 girls we'll make them advertise seperately and make a killing." But the problem is that the agencys aren't going to swallow it and they'll probably just advertise several girls, add "Seduction Unlimited" (or whatever) and the number, then when people respond to the ad they'll get the normal phone girl saying "here's who we have on today".
Those big agency ads were way more costly than 5 or 6 print ads so hey the agency may come out ahead and Monday may have to swallow their sold-out pride.
The right-wing religious nut who owns it also canned Dan Savage in favor of that dumb new girl who talks about the same topics in a whiny annoying way. Bring back Savage Love you tard!
At IB the girls pay their fees and nothing else, they are never charged extra..... not for ads....not for anything....We have a good group of girls, you treat them good and they will treat you good right back!
Some agencies do charge a 1 or 2 of their girls book-on fees because ----- they are the girls that give the "office" a schedule of when they want to work, they call in and book on, and then the phone lady books them a client -- when the phone lady calls the girl to let them know they have a client, the girl does not answer her phone, she is "sick", drunk, whatever ... and blows the call off.
If a girl is notorious for this kind of behavior, the madame will charge her a book-on fee - it is like a small punishment --- heh, you want to work for me and pull this shit? I will charge you $10 every time you book on, to give you some insentive to show up for work. This book on fee does not last for long .... most girls either go to another agency or they start behaving and show up for their shifts.
