    Best & Worst SP Websites

    Someone held a few websites up as an example of good design. I happen to disagree. So, let's have at it, let's rate the various websites. Which do you like? Which sites leave you wanting a redesign?


    Rate them x out of 5 ...
    Functionality - does the website work?
    Size & Quality of pictures - small, big, fuzzy, clear?
    Overall User Interface - the overall user interface
    (anything else?)

    Remember this is not about the quality of the girls, the service or the agency. Only about the site.
    You are cordially invited to toss my salad. There's an app for that!

    Wasn't that done before?

    for me here's the don't:
    • Images you need to click to see and click to close are a no-no. I want a master image to change when my mouse hoover on the thumbnail.
    • Music! If I want music, I'll go to a music site.
    • Clarity. Too much information is often worst than not enough. Overloaded pages are a pain.
    • Windows opening all over the place. When I click on a lady's name, no need to open a new window I'll get stuck closing and repeating on the next girl.
    • Spagetti sites. No way to make any sense, hard to go back-forth, basically built without first doing a plan so, often full of dead links.
    • Inconsistent sites. When I click on a link/button on one page, the same link/button MUST do the same thing on all pages.
    • No "home" links. All pages must have a way to go back to the main page.
    • The "think big" syndrome. When I visit a site, I don't want to scroll-down to see a picture that was placed wrong on the page. Think Devilish new format: the main picture and the thumbnails don't fit on one page, forcing to scroll. Scrolling is ok for text but nothing else. NEVER require any scrolling to get to buttons and remember, most screens aren't 20" running hyper resolution. 1024 is still very common.


    Best sites?
    • For it's ease of use, even with the dated look I go with Asservissantes. Easy to use, even on a portable, load fast, no matter the connection speed.
    • Lilyrosemontreal. Easy to use, simple, nothing flashy, show the sweetness of the provider. Cons: no back button or menus but, the site is small enough so it's no big deal.
    • Closely followed by SatinDreams and MtlSexCity. More frills and a more polished look but still user-friendly. downside is they can't be easily viewed on a portable.


    Then, still good but in no particular order:
    • Devilish: was better before the last "renovation". Now, with thumbnails below the picture, it's harder to look at.
    • GOF. I only use the basic version. That's plenty and the flash is not required.
    • XXXtase: Where's the old site? The new one doesnt fit the escort business, imho.
    • WOP: That damn scrolling banner for the girls!! And the click-to-open, click-to-close images... This site would look so good without these things.
    • Miss Veronica: The tiled menus are not that good and the pictures are hard to view, being misplaced in the page. We have to scroll the main screen then scroll the images... Kudos for having the music muted by default! That's a class act!
    • High Class: Could be quite good with a bit of clean-up! What's with the annoying referral at the bottom-right?

    I always liked the Eleganza website, for the following reasons: representative pics (even though John does not take as many ass shots as I would like, something I have told him); user friendly; he posts a schedule every week so you know what days the girl you want to see is working; and a member's board which explains the service levels of all the ladies. The negatives are he does not really post much info on the ladies other than their nationality, age and measurements, preferring to let the pics speak for themselves, which in most cases they do. Some would also complain the Eleganza schedule is not helpful because the girls sometimes don't show up. I say to these critics, he has enough ladies working that usually you can develop 2 or 3 choices for a day, and if you do not have the foresight to have a plan B, then you are telling me you don't know what you are doing as a hobbyist. Your plan B and C need not be limited to this agency.

    I think MSC is one other agency that does a good job explaining the service levels of its ladies, although the photography could be improved on their website.

    I like the GOF website, and find it to be user friendly and informative with representative pics. My biggest problem with Devilish and GOF has always been that they don't post a weekly schedule on their website and don't take early day bookings like Eleganza does, instead posting a schedule on MERB at 6 or 7 pm every day. For many hobbyists this is no big deal, but I am not a late night guy and never have been, and I like to plan my hobby activities earlier in the day, usually for 6-9 pm. Fortunately, Chris has worked with me on this in the past when he is around, but if he is not around, I usually go with a different agency because I prefer early booking.

    Martin of XXxtase, on the other hand, now posts a weekly schedule and he will also post the day shift ladies on his website, and usually the evening shift ladies are known by 3:30 - 4:00 p.m.

    An example of an agency that had a 1st class website that never really lasted long term was Class XXX, run by the legendary/notorious "Mike." Dangerous Curves, another Chris agency production, had a website with great pics, enticing descriptions and loud, bombastic music (ditto with Platinum Escorts, yet another of Chris's many productions).

    Allissa of Montreal was the last very successful Montreal agency that did not have pics on its website. An HDH agency that went out of business in about 2003, it relied heavily on enticing descriptions to market its ladies. This was of course the model of most escort agencies pre-Internet.

    The best escort photography I have seen, by light years, is on the My Mademoiselle website. I have not met any of the MM ladies so I can't say how representative the pics are, but they are breathtaking.

    I should note I have not been to Montreal since the end of last year so if any of the above has changed, my apologies.

    Truth be told, I was actually only trying to say I thought the old MTLC/Geisha site was NOT a good design. I would certainly like more photos thanFKS provides but I don't need 30-40 photos, esp if many almost the same photo : pick out the best. The big problem was how "busy" a given page was and that the links to the individual "agency" (Geisha, Jet Set, etc) didn't work very consistently.

    I find the GOF, Devilish, MSC/SatinDreams, Eleganza and Asservissante sites functional and effective. I am not really qualified to nit-pick among the acceptable alternatives.

    Kiki's website is, of course, suberb. Ok, I'm teasing you but actually, kudos, it's a great site and the many photos are not overload because the menus are well thought out and the response-time is quick.

    I am not as fond of the XXXTase or WOP sites, WOP pictures are annoying to display.

    I hate music on a site and I hate pop-ups (eg : High Class Escorts),

    Totally agree with you here but too bad about the rates.

    Don't know if you have noticed but they are "temporarily" waving the membership fee and have reduced their rates.

    Un des plus beaux: sensualcleo.com

    J'avoue que je me suis toujours demandé pourquoi ya pas de VF quand ces des sites quebecois, j'avoue que MTL est multi linguiste, et ya beaucoup d'anglais mais sa reste une ville quebecoise...

    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    D'ailleurs, ce n'est pas vraiment necessaire de traduire les sites pcq les seules choses que les gens lisent sont 5'7", 34C, 110 lbs, 19 ans, GFE, $180 :)

    Ive been surfing the agency websites for an upcoming trip...and have to give 2 thumbs up for the picture quality on Vibes website. Man, you click on one of their thumbnails and you can tell that what you see is what you get. And if the large photo isnt enough, they have a feature that allows you to get a bigger picture on the screen. Only improvement would be to have all the thumbnails on one page. Paging down is fine...but when you hit the back button, your at the top of the list again. Great for those 6 girls, but they have more cuties farther down.

    Also want to add that Xtase seems to be keeping with the larger pictures for their newer ladies. Would hope they'd do the same with their other ladies...have to wonder how many bookings they've lost by keeping those small photo's.
