Irritating duo pricing!
Sorry to bring up a common complaint here, but I really don't understanding duo pricing at Montreal agencies. If I wanted to book Gia for two hours, and Taylor for two hours, it would cost me $640 for four hours of fun. If I want to book them together for two hours it will cost me $800!
That pricing arrangement seems to me to be a lose-lose proposition for agency and client alike. I'm happy to pay double the hourly rate for a duo; but I simply can't justify paying an additional $160 for the pleasure of seeing the two girls interact. Seems downright self-defeating to me.
Sorry, I don't want to hijack this thread, which is really about Taylor.
I don't mind duos myself. However, i had it TOO good in the past when i'd be charged only a couple of Robert Bordens for the event. Of course, those were side-deals with a friend who saw me on her own time, who would bring along her lady friend (who then became my friend!) . But what i'm getting at is i haven't had a good duo in nearly a year due to the fact it's more expensive at some places than seeing the girls on individual dates, for more hours.

I've had a number of duos with the best known HDHs in Montreal at exactly the same cost as the mid-range agencies charge. This just doesn't make sense to me.
One of the things I like about TERB and Captain69 is that agency owners participate in the conversation, not defensively but as full active members. I wish there were more of that on MERB, because I'd like to hear an agency owner's rationale for the duo pricing.
Guys... you are totally highjacking Korbel's thread that has nothing to do with duos.
Mod, if you find the time, please split this thread.
PS: Madmax you should have started a whole new thread with your duo frustrations instead of apologizing about the highjack.
MG_mtl, I agree entirely and would be happy for the mods to split the thread.
Splitting the thread
I am happy to see the responses coming very fast. However, I was becoming concerned that this thread was continuing to be off subject. Taylor is such a terrific lady that I think she deserves FULL attention here if you wish to respond on this thread. You are all very interesting. But I do agree with the moderator. I hope there will be more input about Taylor here.

Korbel, we haven't heard a word from the mod so far...

Thanks for separating my rant from the Taylor thread. I do hope, however, that we can get a civil discussion of this issue going.
You have my vote.
I agree with you. Its ridiculous for the girls/agencies to charge extra for their interaction with each other. I don't really care that much if they interact at all. I'm paying them to interact with me. So what if they kiss each other or get into a 69 while I'm having at it with one of them from behind? Is that worth $100-$200? I think not. When I have done this I confirmed the price with the booking agent as 2x the normal fee despite what the website said, and found that the booking agent didn't argue with me. I think in some cases they are just seeing if they can get you to pay it and using the "girls interaction" as a bogus excuse for it.
Think about it. Are they really going to turn down a job because someone doesn't want to pay extortion money? Some money is better than no money! Even if they get a call from someone else at the same time they will still make the same amount of money if it is a regular appt. I would also think that the girls would rather do services together when they can for the comfort factor of having a friend in the room with them rather than being alone with a strange client.
BTW MMax, which HDH's have you had duo's with and what were the rates?
Hey, babe, I always get whiney when I'm horny, and since I'm always horny I guess I'm always whiney too!
No, I'm not in Montreal (yet), so I'm not cheating on you (yet). After I finish my Toronto trip next week, I'll probably not be able to walk for another week....thanks to you!
I guess I'll just have to sample the Montreal gals one by one then.
I've brought this up before. I usually go with JDM. During the week and the day, he usually has a nice selection. JDM gives a discount of $20 for 2 girls. I don't understand the rational of the other agencies.

I think the Montreal agencies are missing out on the market the Toronto serves extremely well: the visiting businessman who has a good deal of discretionary cash and a high sex drive. As I said before, that seems to be a lose-lose-lose proposition for the agency, the girls, and the client.
I think the agencies think they can get away with the extra charge. If guys refuse and go with agencies that don't charge extra, then the others will follow. I won't pay extra for 2 girls. And I know there are some agencies that will not charge extra for 2. I just use them when I get the urge for 2.

Clearly few hobbyists can afford such lengthy 3somes, but at least it demonstrates that smart agencies price their duos on a REDUCING price scale, not an INCREASING one as so many mid-range agencies do.
I'm predicting overall price reductions almost everywhere for SPs by mid winter. The prices escalated so fast that these girls did not know what to ask. There are limits. The economy will start turn slightly downwards soon if it has not already. Luxurty items are the 1st to feel the effects. Lets face it, this is a luxury service.
