An issue that has just arisen between one of the agency owners (one of the best in the business by the way) and one of his girls (an sp who transferred from another agency and who, in the past, has given solid, and sometimes inspired, performances as YMMV). She was listed as GFE but it seems that
her heart wasn't really in it. Her performance was subsequently questioned by a couple of members here and the owner. Her answer was that she didn't want to be forced to have to provide GFE for classless or ungroomed clients. It got me thinking about this whole GFE - YMMV thing again even though the issue has been covered before. And this issue prompted me to take one more crack at it.
First let me say that all clients and sp's should bring their "best selves" to any encounter. A client who is boorish, arrogant or overly aggressive, gotten all "garlicked up," or smells like a barn should be shown the door, period. (An sp who rejects on those grounds is usually supported). I'm sure it can be tough enough for an sp, at times, when, for example, after the first slobbery kiss she realizes, "Eeeeuuuwww! Don't tell me I am going to have to teach it all here!" Some guys just cross the line in other ways. ( I'm sure the sp's
could tell some stories on that score.)
On the other side of the equation it is every clients dread that after he has forked over his hard earned coin,he discovers he has, (going down the scale), a downright manipulative bitch, walking cash register/clock watcher,ice queen, "princess", or at the very least, a complete lack of chemistry on his hands. (Anyone care to jump in from past experience? I may have missed a couple.) This kind of behaviour can be infuriating (annoying to say the least) for the veteran and taken as rejection (unworthy because of looks, age, lack of confidence etc.) for the newbie. It is sometimes bad enough having to deal with initial contact or subsequent reliability issues with an agency, not to mention outright stunts with B&S.
The bottom line is that I think it is great that the sp referred to above is being honest. After all the girls are only human. Clients come in all shapes and sizes, different ages, and with different backgrounds. Some are educated, polished and well groomed. Some are not. Some girls are able to use their imagination and get "into" almost any encounter (within limits of course - Ronnie has argued in the past that a bit of chemistry is almost a prerequisite for providing GFE ). These sp's are highly prized by us and
deserve the distinctive GFE designation in reviews. For other girls, it is just not in them. They need a bit more chemistry but can provide enjoyment for a certain range of clients and that is great (Hopefully it keeps those clients away from the GFE girls). These girls are given the somewhat less distinguished YMMV designation. There is no question that the GFE girl (all things considered) is more marketable than the YMMV girl. And that, I believe is the reason they tend to be more highly prized by agency owners. Thus
the eagerness on the part of some agency owners to get the girls to commit to providing the GFE experience. It is only logical. But in sp'ing as elsewhere in life we are born with or develop skills which give us the edge in getting that job ahead of all the others. You aren't going to hire a "sad sack" to sell cars.
Agency owners aren't stupid. A certified "10" who is an ice queen will often lose out to the less attractive girlwith terrific presentation and people skills.
So in the end, an sp will stand or fall on her subsequent reviews and marketability as a YMMV girl. After all being a survivor in life is what it is all about isn't it?
