Call it a grassroots Merbite Hobbying Golden Rules list! By Merbites, for ALL!
These are the rules the Merbite brotherhood want all newbies to live by because this isn`t the dark ages and no one needs to spend on a session with Bait&Switch lady, Ultra High Maintenance Hottie, or something that crawled out of a gutter.
I can try to update this amalgamated list so it remains comprehensive. Perhaps it becomes a sticky once we get traction + relevant Rules.
1) RESEARCH the Lady + Agency BEFORE BOOKING
- check Bait&Switch listing + Recent Agency Reviews + Ladies (Outcall + Incall)
- run Merb search if you don`t find anything (search using 3 characters require "*" ie. "gia*" OR Google Advanced search specify https://merb.cc as site to be searched)
- still can`t find info, post your Question in Escort 411
2) Make a TO-DO-LIST (TDL)
- save your research
- prioritize + organize future SP sessions
- keeps you focused when plans go off course (see "NEVER RUSH into Booking a Back-up Lady" below)
- the only way a guy can juggle so much info in their head
3) Get STI TESTING REGULARLY
- depending on frequency of hobbying, you want to get tested regularly to avoid surprises
- avoid a prolonged stay on the Disabled List
- heresay: some health professionals recommend x1-x2 monthly if active
- link to Merb Health resource threads
4) Know your ETIQUETTE FOR HOBBYISTS
- shower before your session... 30mins prior is a good rule of thumb
- dress up like you`re going on a date, don`t look like a slob
- place the gift in a visible spot so there`s no question you`re good for it
- ... many more, read the Sticky
5) ASK about a LADY`S RESTRICTIONS/RULES
- YMMV is always in play so get the rules/restrictions out of the way before starting
- whether her restrictions/activities are posted or not, never hurts to clarify
- helps avoid abrupt stops, prevent negative momentum + mood changes during the session
6) Your Mileage May Vary (YMMV) NEVER FORGET Ricky bonds
- what happens in my bed, wont necessarily happen in yours
- we all come from different walks of life, are different ages, different cultures,colours,and creeds.....
- when you read a review, please understand that the services mentioned...along with the level of passion they are executed with is always going to fall on a client by client basis.
- if you have a bad experience, before jumping the gun and accusing the lady and previous reviewers of bullshitting, how about taking a long deep breath and look at yourself in the mirror...
7) NEVER RUSH into Booking a Back-up Lady
- ...especially if the back-up lady isn`t on your TDL!
- Reasons your 1st choice suddenly isn`t available: she got her period, drug frenzy, running way late, ended her night early, you`re not her type and she walks out, an agency regular decided to keep her an extended hour, she was never actually scheduled to work that night, etc.
- Nothing worse than letting your little head do the thinking, forcing you to spend on a lady you had not planned to see, ever!
8) It`s OK to DECLINE A LADY
- Stick to your guns, this is not the time to be "nice"... it`s a business transaction so if you didn`t get what you wanted/expected, send her back
- face didn`t match the body
- she suddenly presents with a long restrictions list even though she`s listed as girlfriend experience (GFE)
- her attitude sucks
- don`t wait for 10mins to elapse before declining... the sooner the better!
9) Hell Breaks Loose, STAY COOL
- read some of the bad sessions some members have had, the lesson learned: be cool, end the session before it gets ugly, call the agency and discuss... potentially negotiate compensation (present/future discount, replacement, etc.)
- don`t air dirt publicly before reflecting and trying to mediate with agency
- if you are about to point fingers publicly, consult a Merb MOD and get advice to avoid doing something you`ll regret down the road
10) TIPPING... or not?
- Like any service industry - tipping is a personal choice - see discussion threads below for Pros & Cons
- July2010 discussion thread
- March2007 discussion thread
- May2006 discussion thread
- February2006 discussion thread
- August2003 discussion thread
- Never hurts to have supplies on hand just in case the lady is running low or just ran out.
- Perhaps you have a preference for a particular brand of condoms, lube, oils, etc.
- Lingerie - you can always supply these items to a lady if you didn`t ask her to bring them in advance.
12) PAY IT FORWARD... Post a Review
- If Merbites have ever helped you avoid a costly lesson, consider paying it forward by registering and posting a review
- ideally your 1st post isn`t a question
13) Guide to MAKING AMATEUR PORN... Ricky bonds
- tips from someone who has gone through the learning curve for us
- links to a growing list of video sessions
14) FOR IN-CALLS: Be on Time: Our Affair
- Not too early (a lady needs time to prepare for her man`s arrival... we don`t like to be rushed!)
- Not too late (a lady gets pissed off when her man is late!... and usually he just gets a shorter session)
15) PRE-BOOKING: Roll of the Dice
- Unless the agency or lady has a consistent track-record for Pre-booking, expect the unexpected: cancellations due to weather, mood, crimson tide, a more loyal client extending multi-hr thru your timeslot, agency mix-up + forgot, SP had emergency or something personal to attend to last minute, etc.
- You are likely better off booking early on the day of (approx. 10AM when the first schedules are posted on https://merb.cc)
- Some clients will book a Plan B lady whenever they Pre-book a Plan A SP - Why? Because is Plan A cancels at 19h you won`t be left with many ladies/options for your evening.
16) PAYING BEFORE PLAYING - ALWAYS A BAD SIGN
- most veteran members will tell you if you an escort asks for payment up front, chances are the session will not go well because
- once you`ve paid, how will you get you cash back if she turns around and leaves,
delivers 15mins on a 60min call,
talks to you 40mins for a 50mins service + 10mins shower session
after kissing, asks for more cash to continue...
- just like contractors/building industry, you never pay in full up front or you`re screwed!
- mind you if you look like a creep, calling at 5AM, smell of booze and look stoned, I can`t blame the agency for wanting to collect up front
17) ... add a rule - SAVE A ROOKIE ...
