    Question Any Real Benefits to Agency Memberships

    Helena of Eleganza is smoking hot; it makes me want to jump into my computer to meet her. Man, I so wish I was in Montreal right now so I can meet Helena!

    Evidently, Eleganza recently started a membership program (as part of its loyalty program). I had signed up as a member at Devilish years ago but no benefits materalized.

    Will membership/loyalty programs have traction? Will this be part of the future landscape of Montreal's Hobbyland? Maybe offer one free session for every six sessions? Who pays for the services of the SP who comes for the one-hour free session

    I figure we need a little breather from the heavy, deep political discussions.

    I notice Eleganza has a membership rate and a non membership rate for their girls.

    What's up with that???

    To encourage membership and thus, hopefully loyalty. I like it; John is trying to be innovative and is taking the initiative to grab and hold onto his share, in a very competitive market.

    Wow, just browsing the Eleganza site and I see that Keli's rate is now based at $240/hr! That's before the extra's of $40 for swallow and $50-$80 for Greek. I understand that each girl or agency can set their rates at what they see fit, but I'm glad I saw Keli at $180 because I would have been real unhappy to have paid $240!!

    John & Merlot,

    Can you resolve your problems by PMs, you can add a mod as recipient if you want but here it isn't the place for accusations, nor to put words in an agency's mouth.

    Thread cleaned.

    I just wanted to point out the obvious. Membership benefits and bonus programs will only be useful to those who hobby a good amount. If you are seeing a girl once a month or less, then it really is not very relevant for you. For crazy people like me, that hobby weekly, it really makes a difference.

    You're very lucky that you saw her at $180. How many times did you see her? Most people i've contacted over the past couple of weeks have only saw her once. Also: have you seen Summer? I'm debating which one of the two is worth seeing the most at the same rates.

    I'm not part of the benefits program, but was wondering if it's hard for a hobbyist who is to remain neutral when he reviews an Eleganza girl.

    The way i see it, it's not much different than any hobbyist agreeing to see a girl at a discount & then writing a review about his encounter.

    What i'm saying is: should hobbyists participating in the 'benefits program' be allowed to review the girl they saw? And if so, should there be an asterisk next to the review indicating that the hobbyist in question received a discount when he saw the girl?

    Speaking for myself, it wouldn't change my review at all. I earned my loyalty discount with 9 girls at regular rates to get that 10th one at 75% off. Even if I was given a discount straight up, my reviews would not be affected. If I felt an influence to skew my reviews positively, I just wouldn't write them.

    In my experience, John is the owner who comments or tries to influence my reviews, the least out of anyone. The only time he has ever even commented on one, was to tell me I accidently divulged some personal info on a girl.

    I was also wondering if a girl's services might be different if she's aware that the john she's seeing is a regular member of the 'membership benefits' system.

    I saw Keli once and would not repeat. Just no connection for me with her. It happens occasionally.

    I saw her a day or so ago. For me, there was a connection, but i knew what to expect in advance due to my research. However, things didn't go as well as i expected. Would not repeat either. Currently working on my review & will post shortly.

    Hmmm,

    This goes right along with my experience. For the hobbyists like ManApart who have the generally daily access and an interest in seeing ladies from an agency 9 times the membership is worthwhile. But I had two memberships for a time and as a hobbyist who had far less opportunity to call on escorts the times of opportunity did not match up with the availability of the preferred ladies. In one year with these memberships I saw one lady at one agency and the other agency never had the ladies I wanted, so altogether the membership did not help.

    Also, if you aren't visiting much you tend to look for the hottest ladies of the moment in an effort to increase the chances of making your fewer encounters each be as high in quality as possible. In that case you might not want to go with your membership agency enough to get the necessary 9 encounters for a discount...or it might take a very long time to accumulate the minimum 9.

    Yes, good points about the temptation to be more positive on reviews because of discounts or the services being better than otherwise if it's with a preferred member. In some cases on each point there would be no effect, in some...maybe. How can the reader be sure either way.

    ???

    Of course.

    I think any discounts for any reason should be disclosed.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts guys. The "invinsible hand of the market" will work its charm. I'm envious of ManApart!
