By "Merb-centered," I mean agencies whose girls are often reviewed here.
Reading over recent posts, it seems like some well-established agencies have been disappointing their customers lately. Here's the list as I see it:
Devilish/Mtl Girls on Fire -- complaints about girls being delivered late and/or in no condition to work
Nadya's VIPS -- complaints about the phone people being rude and/or unavailable
Montreal Angels -- the owner threatened his clientele via a message right here at Merb
I'll add another agency just from my personal experience: Montreal Sex City. That's because the one time I used it, the girl I hired told me she felt abused and exploited by the people in charge. She was a very nice girl, so I took her remarks to heart. This was almost four years ago, so if there's been a change of ownership I'd certainly reconsider.
So that's 5 agencies that I would hesitate about calling. Here are the Merb-centered agencies that still seem reliable:
Does anybody have any agencies to add to or remove from either list?
Update: A couple of people have mentioned problems with Eleganza. The last time I used Eleganza the girl I saw was Daryn, so they're ok by me. But at one point the phone guy did feed me quite an elaborate line that appears to be untrue.
This was in 2009 and the girl involved is no longer working. Basically, after I saw her I got chlamydia. My only STD in many years as an occasional hobbyist. I called up the agency to warn them. The fellow swore up and down that it was impossible, that the agency had its girls regularly tested and wouldn't let them work unless they were clean.
But chlamydia takes a set amount of time to incubate. During that time -- and for a few months before it -- I had had no sex except for the encounter with the girl in question. I got the chlamydia from her, meaning the agency's foolproof system had slipped up or else that there was no system.
Enough to keep me from using Eleganza again? Nope. But a useful data point to keep in mind if an Eleganza phone man ever tells you something you find doubtful.
