    Lightbulb Trial of review scoring system!

    I greatly enjoy reading these forums and I've learned a great deal by doing so. I always try to adjust some things in my business practices to perfect them and I find these boards an invaluable source of information to guide me in those choices.

    Recently, I have found great interest in reading the scoring systems for reviews as I find them a great way to share information about the quality of an escort without necessarily revealing specific information and activities taken place during a particular encounter. Of course certain activities may be deducted by the scoring but at least I personally find it more respectful than a blow by blow account of a date.

    I also agree that a 10 point scale is leaves much more room for details and accuracy than a 5 point scale. Since EBS has posted very detailed messages about his scoring practices I have decided to try it for the fun of it. The only candidate I feel I can honestly review is Coralie since I have actively participated and seen her participate with gentlemen on a few occasions. I feel this gives me enough info to give a proper scoring review.

    LOOKS:

    Face: 9.2 Beautiful natural beauty. Head turner!

    Body: 9.5 100% natural, toned and perfect curves. Can wear anything and look absolutely stunning. Virtually perfect breasts

    Service: 9.5 Warm, very engaging and participative! Excellent (definitely above average) provider and partner.

    Attitude: 9.8 As close to perfection as I have even known. The only deductions are because I think total perfection doesn't really exist. Very friendly, upbeat and smiles freely. She is totally engaged with the person or people she is with always giving her full attention. Intelligent, cultured and well traveled, conversation with Coralie is always very interesting!

    Total composite score: 9.5

    The Lady has stones...

    JacknJill,

    I think a lot of the posters on this forum already know Coralie and certainly don't take Racquelle's attempt at scoring her as promotional. I think that is a stretch. If you are the heavily advertised JacknJill out of Vancouver, perhaps I understand the cause of your anxiety..LOL..

    What she is trying to do, at least in my mind is to see if she understands the system and perhaps generate a discussion about scoring. Reviewing and scoring is such an imprecise science, that numbers from different reviewers hardly corellate. GFE concepts and definitions differ tremendously. A discussion might be in order to get people on the same page.

    Scoring Coralie..

    Racquelle,

    Gutsy excercise! I devised this system actually for personal use and seldom would use it in a public conversation to describe an escort currently working unless I was reviewing her.

    The areas I believe are the most objective: Service

    Attitude: personality, passionate delivery and presence.

    With Coralie I will share two numbers for the sake of discussion:

    Service: 9.5 -this speaks for itself and you called it right on
    Attitude 10.0- this number is possible because I find no fault in the service category, I had an excellent time trading emails with Coralie who was prompt and courteous, she was ontime, she does have great conversation, and darn it she is ready to go when you are..sometimes before.

    The other important number for me: GFE rating : For Coralie it is 9.75 which is the average of the service and attitude categories.
    A composite score of 8.25 or better is a pretty good lady. And of course I score body type according to weight and age. I actually prefer a petite body type so the majority of women I'd see would be 5'7 and 120 lbs and under.

    Most ladies in the escort population are between 7 and 9 in my book. Most men have never seen 10's let alone 9's yet there are far too many in the inflated grades handed out. Most ladies will score 7-8 in looks and body, when they get above 8 in either category, they are head turners in my estimation.

    If your service +attitudes averages above 9 , you are a GFE in my system. That is to say there would be few indivuals who would encounter you and not consider you to be GFE. This is independent of age and body type. And to show you that it is a relatively unbiased system of scoring if applied consistently: There are 3 ladies that I have on record whose composite scores are 9 and higher. 2 in Montreal both under age 30, and 1 in Vancouver, who is 48 years old..LOL..

    several grains of salt

    Well, the "review" is what it is....at least it is not a misrepresentation. Obviously, anyone providing a glowing review of her business partner really does not provide the sort of information in which I personally would put any serious confidence. Further, I do not think that the reviewer can offer the perspective of a client. I can also see how it places both persons' credibility into question.
    I personally do not see any compelling need to adopt a new rating system in place of the one in use on the spreadsheet. Too much confusion when the prior 5's start being seen as being merely average. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Well, a lot of that spreadsheet information is just flat out misleading and a 5 point scale makes the situation worse. With the spreadsheet on 5 points, I find it quite inconsistent. Everybody can use whatever system they like. 5 points just doesn't get it, given all the questions even with the information in front of you. And you are right...there are a lot of fives on that sheet that are merely average and therein lies the problem.

    Well, E B Samaritano,

    this is an interesting perspective that you bring up, but is does not necessarily excludes mine. I am not shocked by the thread of Raquelle, i am just saying that maybe it is more difficult to receive her comments and analysis of this score according to the fact that she is in business with this lady. No matter how many hobbyists (and very crediible ones) would agree with her.

    BTW, I never heart about the JacknJill you are referring to.

    JacknJill
    The Jack and Jill I refer to are a well known couple in the business that I have seen in both SF and Vancouver advertising markets. Your board name reminded me of them. Your skepticism about Racquelles post, quite frankly sounded like professional jealousy. I now know that to not be the case.

    JacknJill: I honestly did this exercise purely for the fun of it but after reading your response I can very well see that it can be seen as a promotion. You said "self promotional" which isn't the case as I reviewed another escort in which I have no financial gain whatsoever by business generated from my exercise. I can see that it could be construed as me advertising my partner but it was not my intention.

    The only reason I chose Coralie is that she is the one I have had the most direct experience with in ways that could be reviewed. Most other ladies I have only met in social situations and others that I have participated with usually won't bring a favorable review and since I am a female client, it is an aspect that can greatly influence a scored review. For example, I may not have enjoyed my experience because the escort was not truly bi and therefore the encounter was fake in which would not be the same scenario with the same escort being with a male client. I can review another escort in Montreal in which I feel I have enough experience to give a proper review and I would gladly do so. I am in no way presently affiliated with this escort in any way, shape or form. Ask and you shall receive

    chowhound: I would like to also not that the scoring review that I have done is not only based on my experiences with Coralie but from witnessing her interactions with male clients. It would in fact be as you say a review totally useless to you if I had only based my information from the interaction between the two of us alone. I don't think it is possible to compare a female/female review with a male/female review. The encounters being quite different and the expectations and activities especially so. I believe though that a review from a female on a "ménage à trois" encounter has enough information to give a review that is useful to a man that would be seeking an encounter with only one escort. I can definitely attest to her interaction with a male client and her service level with him. The thing that is more subjective in this type of review in my opinion would be physical beauty as the differences between female and male opinions may vary more than just between males.

    I really am sorry if this thread comes off as me trying to advertize my partner. It really was not my intention. I must say though, that I have not said anything that has not been said about Coralie numerous times before. Her stellar reputation is well deserved.

    Sincerely,
    Racquelle

    Also, I am in no way trying to change the scoring system for reviews! I simply stated my opinions that I prefered another style and I have read that many others do too, just wanted to try it!

    Racquelle

    P.S. A question for you gentlemen: Would you like to see reviews from a female client from true transactions? I often frequent strip clubs and occasionally will obtain escort services. I understand that such reviews would not necessarily bring you information all that helpful to you. Would you like to see it? Would it be interesting reading at the very least?

    I expect honest opinions no matter what they are. Although I am a small girl physically I am a big girl otherwise and can handle honest criticism and replies.

    I would like to address before any answers are posted that I know that such posts would be seen as me advertizing myself and honestly I won't deny that it does in fact have an effect in this way. Realizing from some answers posted on this thread (which I am thankful for) I do not wish to offend anyone nor is my main intent in this the promotional aspect. I will not lie and say that I don't appreciate that side effect so if it is not welcome I will not do so

    Even if it would be only construed as advertisement to some, I think it's a much better way than to just come and post my schedule and try to outright sell myself! I haven't done this ever (save for an Ottawa trip) and never plan to!

    By all means, let the opinions roll!!!!

    Darn that was a long P.S.!!! LOL

    I suspect that a complicated scoring system that requires working with a common standard to code the gfe attributes and further effort in decoding the numbers from other clients, is unlikely to be widely adopted. The spreadsheet numbers are not real scores. They are just shorthand for the Excellent, Above Average, Mediocre etc. subjective categories that were used in Lyla's List reviews. What works best in my case is a review that mentions the escorts services (using tasteful euphemisms) and describes the social interaction. My analog brain can quickly decipher the likely enjoyment I would get from that type of session.

    You also have to ask yourself what am I looking for?

    If it's a simple role in the hay then you can be more permissive with her social skills.

    If it's someone that you want to talk to because you're lonely, then looks aren't that important but empathy / compassion is.

    If it's a night out on the town, dinner an event and impress your peers, then social skills and beauty are a must.

    It's all a question of really knowing what you want and then base your criteria on that.

    Some are searching for a GFE others a PSE and some want it all.

    Me all I want is to have fun!

    I don't have much interest in one scoring system or another.

    But if I read Racquelle's message correctly, she was offering to write about having sex with other women.

    All I can say is please do so, as soon as possible and as often as you want.

    Concrete information

    As several people have already pointed out, concrete information is more useful than a summary rating number as different people are looking for different things. Personally, I would appreciate it if reviewers mentioned the presence of body piercing as tongue studs and piercing on the lips are a serious negatives for me (but apparently not for many others).

    Touch, I agree with you fully - numeric rankings just don't impart anywhere near enough knowledge. Piercings, habits (smoking, drinking, "others"), and special features (both good and bad) can really help others decide if this is going to be the person they call next, or if this is the person they would avoid.

    Anyway, just like Spinal Tap, I think that all rating systems should go to 11, so when you find a really good girl, you can rank her 11 out of 10.

    Your mileage may vary... mine did!
