So Iggy's post in the price negotiation thread triggered this thought. (And absolutely nothing wrong with that post.) What do you do when a girl stays longer than what was initially booked? Do you pay her the full rate of that "extra" time (per agency or indy advertised pricing)? Or do you tip somewhere close to that "full pricing"? Do you tip less, like just 20-60? Or no tip?
Until this last year or so, I've rarely ever gone for hour-plus sessions. I've never felt compelled either to call the booker to extend a session in-session (and have still only ever done that once). I book for an hour. I'm conscious of the time. We're done on time, maybe +5 or 10 or 15 minutes, at most. Fine.
I am relatively unfamiliar with Montreal's IndyLand, but in other places, I deal more with indies, and I've been regularly lingering past the hour with some favorites. (It's been a fun and full-on bender...) Up to 15 minutes, I don't feel guilty for overstaying. Longer than that, I've just paid the full price, as if I had initially booked for the longer time. I know that's the best-case scenario for the SP. And the business part of me knows it's fair. But is that always what's expected? Am I missing out on "free time" with my mindset? Hahaha - I know the girls crack up at this one, but what if they do like me (), and are OK with giving me some free time? How do I get some of that and not, in the process, insult them by not paying the full rate? What's the balance? If there is one.
This is typically a non-issue for agencies, as they're noticing their girl about 5-10 minutes before the end of the hour, anyways. Indies just have more flex in their schedules. I'm sure every locale has its own customs. Curious to hear what is commonly done in MTL.
