    SP with no reviews...What does it mean to you?

    I've been wondering about this for a while...so let's ask.

    I've been watching a couple SPs at reputable agencies. They've been on the roster for weeks if not a couple months (maybe more), but still zero reviews.
    I wonder why...

    Some possibilities:
    - they are just plain not very good at being SPs (and fellow Merbists, kind-hearted as they are, are trying to go soft on the ladies' feelings - which I think is unlikely)
    - for some reason(s), their customers are not Merb reviewers; maybe lurkers, or non-members
    - unofficial word is that they are not attractive and they are not being booked
    - pro-Merbists know that she used to be "Girl X from agency ABC" - therefore the lack of review may only be apparent and not real
    - business is slow and it takes a while before a SP gets a first review
    - they are someone's best kept secret...

    What do you think?

    If they have been around for a while and there are no reviews - based on my limited experience it is because they aren't very good and don't get mediocre reviews out of kindness. If a girl is good, guys here generally aren't that good at keeping quiet about it.

    If it was a bad meeting/service I would hope that someone puts in a review. For myself I only review someone who has not been reviewed ( Did not know Tanya was someone else before ).

    For this reason,sometimes people just keep gems to themselves for a while, or backchannel and share with people they know only.
    Totally agree with you. I've TOFTT (or at least I thought I was) and have been pleasantly surprised.

    Then the SP would contact one of the Mods and declare a No Review Policy. This has happened before. I say better to start something in the 411 section and hopefully someone will either answer you publicly or privately. Since there are many other review boards and websites you can expand your research and your chances will increase to find a review.

    The 411 section has worked for me once before. Someone knew that the SP I was asking about had worked under a different name at another agency.
    I have checked other boards but, frankly, not a single one compares to Merb in depth or breadth. So, no, I did not find anything about those SPs elsewhere either.

    I once went with a SP with only one average review (I liked the photos) and had a wonderful time. Ended up repeating with her several times. Reviews are only indications and one has to learn to read in between the lines and look for hints or indications that match what you are looking for. As always, encounters are a matter of personal chemistry and all that is unpredictable. I recently saw a SP with a recent string of average to mediocre reviews (she is now retired and under a NRP, so I will not mention her name) and, again, a great time was had. But reading in between the lines, I thought she had something interesting. Talking with her I could understand why she wouldn't connect with some personalities or some body types... (not to mention personal habits or lack thereof).

    This hobby is YMMV all the way.

    This is important to underline what you said.

    The industry of reviews have its positive & negative sides , and on the bad side, it could lead sometimes gentlemen to falsely think that a particular exchange lived by someone else is automatically something he will live too. Intelligent reviewers don't give too much details to not put the ladies in an eventual delicate situation to deal and refuse during an encounter, and make someone unhappy and in a bad mood to eventually, write a bad review or worse, to face an angry man during an encounter.
    That's not all gentlemen who are indeed, gentlemen, with a nice attitude and having a pleasant gentle touch.

    A nice respectful approach & a warm attitude go more far than a mechanical stricly based services attitude. And yes, I am writing about gentlemen presently, not about the ladies...
    We are having a lots in common, ladies & gentlemen.


    Sigma, to add to your list, you can add that the lady doesn't want a review. Some are asking to not have a review because they are not believing in this kind of evaluation and are not wanting to participate in such practices.

    A review is personal opinion by the writer at that given time, for many reasons the meeting my not be perfect. SP not 100 well, reviewer being a bit down etc. I have used a MP which does not too many reviews, and usually take a different sp each time, and on one occaision I was given the same girl an a subsequent visit, the second meting was totally differnt from the first, she was far more out going and I had a much better time. As I said at the begining a review is an opionion, I gues you can't expect a SP to be fully outgoing and relaxed with someone she has not met before.

    I find that the reviews are mainly on girls advertizing on this site. There are a lot more out there without reviews. I TOFTT more than once I got good and bad surprises. I've make sure to share. But I agree that reviewsis are not a "garantee of quality" because this is so subjective. For me, discovering is also part of the thrill in this hobby. It depend how I feel: in dicovery mode or in sure thing (go to reviews) mode.

    The disillusional men want to keep her a secret. Yes guys, she will only survive by banging only you.

    Basically two things, either she is very good and people* are keeping it a secret or an
    average looks / encounter that there is not much to write about.

    This is exactly what I feel...If the encounter and looks were average but she was nice, I don't write or mention
    anything publicly BUT I mention (Privately) to my hobbyist friends and buddies that the encounter
    was average and average for me and them means NO REPEAT. I think "No Repeat" mentioned publicly
    will hurt the girl's chances to make some money... so I let go.

    Also, as a rule of thumb, these days I go with agencies that include the menu / services provided by
    an SP on the MERB advertisements or on their sites, GFE and no descriptions doesn't mean anything for
    me anymore but the ones with the menu provided gives me a good idea of what kind of encounter to expect.
    and most of the girls who are GFE+ or PSE are getting the reviews because of the services they provide which
    translates to above average to good service hence making the encounter very enjoyable.

    *There are reviewers who post fairly quickly and share the good news / encounters with us...
    Are really appreciated.

    I do not think you understood my post. If a member has a bad meeting a review should follow ( more important than a good meeting ). Not all SP's read review boards to be put on NRP list. Plus it is fun to be with a sp who has not been reviewed and get your own opinion. And when I see a sp who has been reviewed I do not review " Wow, same thing ". Too many people see a SP who has been reviewed very well and had subpar service but still say " I was with her and WOW ". I have had PM's about Tanya saying they had the same not so good service, not much in the review section though.

    Good point, Divine Marie.
    Some may ask not to be reviewed. But, in my experience, limited as it may be, many SPs appreciate good reviews because it usually translates into more business. I've never had a SP ask me not to review, but I have had a couple ask to review (I guess it is a given that the encounter went well).

    Ah yes. I remember a number of past threads about this issue. Some men have precise almost mechanical expectations about encounters. A bit like the lady is a machine: put the coins in and she will deliver an exact set of services with a cheerful, dirty sexy attitude - no matter how the lady may feel. This is an attitude I personally find hard to understand.

    This is different that asking a SP if she delivers a certain specific activity - like, for ex., foot fetishism, BDSM, anal, etc... If, before an encounter, a SP says she is comfortable with something like that, then I guess she is more or less bound to deliver (unless of course there is something "wrong" with the gentleman). This is obviously easier to do with indies because usually one can communicate directly with them. I wouldn't be surprised that some agency bookers occasionally over-promise.

    But on the GFE/GFE+ scale, things become a lot more YMMV. After all, the sex one has with a girlfriend is not always the same, is it?
