Thread: Percentage of Hobbyist who TIP

  1. #1

    Percentage of Hobbyist who TIP

    Tipping has been brought up countless times on these boards. Its a German policy in the FKK clubs NEVER to tip. If you post a review and state that you gave a girl extra you WILL be told by the board members never to do that.

    But this is the Montreal board...and I think it would be good to know how many actually tip an SP or MP. This has probably been posted before but this time Id like to request the members of the board who are Sp's or Mp's to refrain from voting...seeing that they dont do the tipping.

    Arrow Tipping is up to your discretion

    Again, at the risk of repeating myself: Tipping is highly personal and has nothing to do with extras. I still believe in tipping after I received a great service from an agency lady. As I stated above, my tipping policy has changed for high priced indies. I basically feel that their tips are included in their rates.

    P.S. If you see an agency lady who is awesome for two hours and you tip her $40-$60, it is going to kill you.

    I don’t want to appear nitpicky here, but I couldn’t help noticing that your question is problematic because of the word “frequently.” We all have a different sense of what “frequently” means. As such, the poll results will be unclear. Perhaps a range of numerical (%) values would be helpful: e.g., 0-25%, 26-50%, 51-75%, 76-100%, with the qualification “when you have received excellent service.”

    Does giving taxi money or taking a SP out for lunch or supper after the session count as tipping?

    Alternatively, and in light of your explanatory post, you might simply rephrase the question to read: Do you, as a hobbyist, feel that it is appropriate to tip SPs when they provide excellent service. this, of course, won't tell us whether voters actually tip but it will give a good indicationof how they stand onthe matter.

    Tips DO NOT get you better service, they serve as a tool to say to a lady - wow! you rocked my world! Seeing them again, is just as effective.

    Outside this hobby (hotel, bar, club (especially when place is full pack and waitress have to run)) tips give you a better service... but in that business its much more a way to say 'thank you' or when service was more than expected...

    It depends. I have tipped in order to get extra service, I have tipped for good service and I have not tipped at all. I don't have any hard and fast rules. Life is too short, and should be lived spontaneously and on occasion, whimsically.

    How many times have you booked an escort and paid at the end of the hour?? Hardly ever...its always money up front, she counts it and its down to business.

    Guess the better question i should have asked was 'when do you tip?'...at the beginning of the hour or at the end? If its at the beginning then its no longer a tip...its trying to get better service. If its at the end your aiming to please the lady getting her to smile that she's getting a little extra.

    So that's two sides of the coin. The third side of tipping is your influencing the raising of the rates. At the end of the night the girl's thinking she should be making "this much" compared to her "normal rate". Now she's looking for a higher priced agency in order to make the higher rate.

    The effect of tipping on rates.

    Hello all,

    I look at tipping as another way of saying thanks. For that reason it seems almost obligatory for me to tip anywhere from $20-50...$30 is most typical. It all depends on how nice and attentive she was, the percentage of the fee, whether she is at an LDL or an HDH rate: then there is simply a certain feeling of propriety. I tip something at least 95% of the time. Sometimes I give it at the beginning, often I give it at the end.

    As for what the effect of tipping has on rates, I never worry about that. I do what I think I should do and no other consideration matters to me. I am interested in the opinions of others, but in the end that will not matter to me at all. But there is a limit for me. If I want to see someone who asks for a much higher than average fee, I realize accepting that rate is my choice, but $50 for a tip is my absolute limit. After all, I am just some average bastard with just enough money to have some fun and I cannot afford to get crazy.

    Regards,

    Korbel

    I used to tip systematically as soon as the encounter was ok. Just as in a restaurent...

    Now I am a little bit more selective and tip only if the attitude is well over the avarage and deserves a special mention... I have never tiped for extra. I always stick to the "normal menu" !!

    This could be the subject of another poll. Its rare with outcalls that I pay up front. Most girls rarely ask - in fact I think it only happened once. Any comments from others on this?

    I don't tip SP's from established quality agencies. As someone stated in another thread, I don't tip doctors, lawyers and other professionals who charge high hourly rates and SP's fall in that category. The price is set, that's what I pay.

    Its a German policy in the FKK clubs NEVER to tip. If you post a review and state that you gave a girl extra you WILL be told by the board members never to do that.
    I agree. The more people tip, the more SP's will come to expect it and see this practice as standard. This does nothing but drive prices up.

    Not everyone has unlimited disposable income. $40-$60 might be peanuts to you but it certainly isn't to me and to many others. So to you.

    Anik, I agree.

    I don't tip but if the sp and I have a great time together I "tip" with repeat and repeat business. And I think that makes both of us happy.

    I've only tipped mps, never sps, unless I offer to pay for her cab fare...

    Who's tipping who?

    Taking an escort out for dinner after the session sounds more like her tipping you with social time rather than you tipping her with food.
