    What Is The Current Market Definition of HDH in Montreal?

    We have all seen the market change rather dramatically in Montreal since 2002. The heyday of the US dollar fetching $1.60 CDN are long gone, possibly never to return. The halcyon days of getting the Hyatt on Priceline for $50 or less also appear long gone, never to return.

    So do we now need to reanalyze the threshold for calling someone a high dollar hottie (HDH) as opposed to a low dollar looker (LDL)? I think so. More recently this discussion has even come up with an escort I have seen, who was clearly HDH material but did not really know what that meant and may have had a difference of opinion on the matter with her agency.

    Is the benchmark of $300/hour from the glory days something that is firmly in our rear view mirror? Is $200 the new benchmark? $250? What do you all have to say?

    Given the number of great looking and performing women who charge under $200 in Montreal, I have no idea why someone would pay more than $200, especially in this economy. You're not paying extra for better pussy or better looks; you're basically paying extra for exclusivity. You're less likely to have to compete with other Johns for a woman's time, if she charges more than she's worth. If money is no object to you, maybe this exclusivity is worth it. It's not worth it to me. Actually, with the glut of girls on the market, how many guys have a problem seeing the ones they want to see, anyway? $200 is my upper limit, and I won't tip anyone at that price. Girls who charge less than that can get up to that from me, if they give me good service. I work hard for my money, and I'm not so grotesque that $200 isn't more than adequate compensation for someone to fuck me. Actually, it would be nice if they had a sliding scale so the less disgusting you are, the less you pay and vice versa.

    Frankly, I'm not too sure that many of the current SPs are HDH class, as some used to view that pricepoint. I've not punched the Montreal ticket in about 2 years now, but I've seen very few represented here who meet that standard recently.

    "What Is The Current Market Definition of HDH in Montreal?"

    obviously it's $ based, but a good follow up ?'n is "what do you expect from an hdh?"

    my answer:

    she must be as hot looking as me, as healthy & fit as me, as intelligent/intellectual & witty as me, as well-traveled as me, as well informed about the world as me, as willing to pay as much for me as i do for her.

    other than that, i don't expect much at all.

    It seems from some of the prior posts that not everyone undertood the intention of my thread. I am not asking about whether the ladies available at HDH rates are HDH worthy. What I am asking is, assuming a lady is HDH worthy, what is the threshold rate at which she ceases being market rate and starts being considered HDH. That is what I am asking you to vote on. The point at which you feel you are paying HDH rates, regardless of whether you feel as though you are getting HDH quality or not.

    Well,

    Your question has to be to Americans since the effect of the change in currency value rates has much more impact on them. With the value of the American dollar now about 35% less against the Canadian dollar the equivalent of the old HDH standard of $450/2 hours or $250/hour would have to mirror the drop in the value pf our (Americans) dollar. If one considers it's current value compared to the past, factors in the drop, then considers how tight most have had to be be with their money in view of the current economy then even $200/hour seems like an excessive HDH expense compared to the past. So would in an Americans view under these standards most agencies these days are HDH.

    But then one has to consider that Americans were experiencing a very, very fortunate surge in the value of our currency back then that was unsustainable. Maybe HDH in 2003 should have been between $350 and $400/hour considering the very high exchange rate and what our dollar could buy back then. In view of that standard maybe HDH is now legitimately $250.

    It really all depends on what standards are fair considering the current dollar value and the affordability of an HDH versus what the average client can afford to spend. But it sure isn't over $300 today.

    However, if the question is taken from a Canadian perspective, it changes everything because there would seem to be far less extreme relative change in the value of their dollar. As a Canadian I would say $300, as an American adjusting to the huge drop in value of our dollar in Canada...significantly less.

    That's my view.

    Cheers,

    For me, between $300 and $350 for a real HDH. Given that lozy economic conditions in the good old USofA, I would treat myself to a real HDH on my birthday. For $350, she better be very intelligent, well read and show up with an exceptionally positive attitude and make me feel like a king.

    Very interesting and disparate opinions on this issue! 7 years ago my answer would have been $300 but now I don't know, and that is why I started the poll........

    Aren't these numbers low? Victoria Joie gets 660$ for 1.5 sensual tryst. Lilly Lombard is getting something crazy like 1000$ to see her. I think a lot of agency girls that are HDH are doing the 2 hour minimum.

    BTW-In the southern states of the US I would say 400$+ is HDH. the average Indy will ask 250$-300$ and the average agency will ask 200-250$

    hungry101,

    The poll question asks about the minimum threshold for HDH, not the median or average. As was explained in my prior posts.

    Yes this is not exactly what you asked for. My answer to your question is that i do not know for sure. My opinion is anything over the going rate of 160-200$. So I consider 250$ as HDH

    I have been asking the question however, what do you get extra for an HDH?

    Exclusivity - meaning less clients, and a girl who has been less serviced on that day. And in some cases you get a hotter babe. But that is not the focus of this thread. The focus of this thread is on HDH pricing at its threshold levels. Once you identify that a lady is a proper HDH candidate, where should she be priced in today's market?

    You are probably going to get as many different answers as there are hobbyists... As for myself, I would say 225$, but that's only because I'm a cheap bastard...

    Seriously! Anything over 200$ is out of my league. I always go for 2 hours sessions so that's 400$ + the room + drinks + chocolates + that little pill + tip... So we are talking about 500$ for two hours of fun... I honestly can't go any higher. Of course, if it's an Incall, I might go to 450$

    I would say that that thresold depends on many factors: How thick is your wallet, How often do you indulge, how badly you want to meet with that particular girl, among other things.

    That being said, I probably am going to break my own rule... I REALLY want to meet with Jasmine (the original). Her fee is 220$, so that'll bring the session in the 550$ range... Oh well...
