Has anyone been asked for a tip by an escort? For xxample an escort says that he will hook up for X number of dollars, then the next time he corresponds he says plus tip. I never ran into this sort of thing when I lived in Southern Ontario, though I did tip.

One escort I hired recently was listed in the Palm Springs section of Rentboy for $260/ He actually lives about an hour away.

 

I noticed his Palm Springs price was $60 higher than his local price. I counted that as his tip! I might have tipped him $20 under ordinary circumstances, given the level of service he provided.

Yes, I had one of FratboysHarrisburg ask for a tip to cover expenses

for gas. Mentioned this to Lance, when he was in charge of the escort

service, and he told me he'd tell the guy it was inappropriate. :(

The one time this happened to me was in Chicago with a guy who did erotic massage. It was actually worse than straight-out asking for a tip. Instead, while he was still working on me, he started talking about how nice it was when people tipped for services, and wasn't that a good idea, and didn't I agree that tipping was a great way to show appreciation. It would have been funny if it hadn't been so crass. I probably would have given him a tip - he was very hot and gave a pretty good massage - but not after that ham-handed line.

Have had escorts refuse a tip and have had a few accept only after I offered a second time. I don't tip all the time or even most of the time but on occasion when the escort has been particularly charming and my bank account allows, I will give a tip. Usually, when I go to an escorts home for a call, I will bring a small gift, as I might when visiting for any social occasion.

Speaking for myself I would never ask for a tip. If someone feels I did a great job and wants to tip cool. But I think to out right ask for a tip is tacky and unprofessional. Plus the with rates that most of us charge there is no need to feel one needs to tip. Just my half cents worth.

But it isn't a social occasion is it?

 

Would you bring a small gift to your lawyer, doctor or interior designer if they happened to have their office in their home?

Max, a skinny twink-type dancer (with attitude) at club Taboo in Montreal would mention at the end of our session i nthe VIP booth: "that's 3 dances you owe plus any TIP you want to give me."

 

It created an awkward situation, especially since he sucked and I had no intention of tipping him.

 

Needless to say that was the last time I ever requested any dances from him.

 

Max told me that when he solicits patrons for VIP dances and the patron rejects him saying "sorry, you're not my type" Max will reply back to the patron "thats okay, you're not my type either."

 

Attitude.

 

Anyway, here's an interesting article on tip jars:

List of services I tip for but not limited to: baristas (not so much Starbucks because they just push a button and the machine does the hard work), bartenders on the rare occasion I drink, servers, taxi drivers who drive safely (rarely), gas station attendants in Oregon, porters and occasionally baggers at the grocery store if I need help out. If the person does a great job or I ask them to help me out when I have a lot of stuff to take to the Flex Car then sure why not tip. I think that one reason why more and more places are accepting tips is because of what I like to call Wal Mart wages that seem to be en vouge all over the place. I remember before I left Starbucks I was doing about $3,600 a year in tips. But that was when the baristas actually had to work at pulling a shot of espresso.

OK, point of fact having worked there as well through the original Morozco (dose coffee, tamp, pull the shot, etc.) and then through the automated Verismo machines with nasty bad shots. I'm surprised having worked there you'd think that pulling shots is all that's worth the tips.

 

Nowadays I practically live at the one beneath my apartment and I've become pretty close (literally, figuratively, or biblically) with the boys working there.

 

Most baristas would rather not use the automated ones because it requires MORE work getting the shot right and steaming milk and creating foam etc. So yeah, despite it being easier to pull shots I assure you they're doing a lot of other work (and prep work) behind the counter to warrant a tip.

 

They get paid nearly minimum wage and a lot of people live on their tips there. Adding to that the damned Starbucks Card which took away the option of tipping altogether.

 

OOoh and useless fact #26: The group Nickelback was named because the lead singer used to work at Starbucks and everything was, yep, you guessed it, "a nickel back."

there's already enough cash being thrown around....

 

I give a small gift to repeat escorts that I know they'll appreciate...a gift card to a favorite store, a fancy type of food, etc....it's thoughtful, practical, and clever, I think.....

 

I can't entirely blame some guys, especially the dancer and less-experienced types, for suggesting a tip during the performance or whatever....they need the money usually and are just communicating how they think it should work....it's all about money and you, the customer, can simply smile, be friendly, and decide whether they deserve one or not....

If I were going into their home, I would bring a small token yes. If I were going just to the office, I would not usually bring a gift but when visiting my doctor or lawyer, I will occasionally drop off a small gift, for the staff. These are not expensive gifts and they don't cost me much in time, effort or money but they do require some thought.

 

Perhaps this is why I get excellent service from these people or perhaps I deal with excellent people and like them to know I appreciate it.

 

I can tell you, that after a recent personal loss which was reported in the local newspaper, I returned to my office to find about 250 cards and notes of support. Many of these from people whose name I did not immediately recognize, only to realize that these were some of the people I run into each day and to whom I had perhaps given a small gratuity. We all need support some times and one can never be sure the positive impact a small consideration may have in someone's life. Each of those acknowledgements helped me get through that difficult situation.

 

I have found that adding a bit of thoughtfullness of others to my day has enriched my life. We could all use a bit more gentility and one way to get it, is to give it.

Thanks for that Rick I had a nice chuckle. But I did notice you put in chocolate pretzels and left out the chocolate covered strawberries. I grant you they looked horrible but I remember them being quite tasty.

 

Looking forward to seeing you both soon.

 

I have never seen a purplekow;

I never hope to see one;

I can tell you anyhow;

I'd rather see than be one

 

Help there is a purplekow in my mirror

I live on top of a 30,000 square foot supermarket and across the street from a great gay bar (if you discount the recent shooting that was related on the front page of this site). They have had one or two cute baggers and or stock boys that have helped to deliver my groceries upstairs. I'm afraid I made one or two of the lads late getting back to work, but I made sure to tell their manager about the excellent customer service I receive :)

My practice is to only tip the guys who work for an agency since they have to split part of the rate. But only if they provide a really good time, which they ususally do. Then I'll give them up to $50 as a gratuity. Since the independent guys are not splitting their rate with an agency I don't really see the need for a tip. I am sure others would disagree.

 

Once a guy in Dallas quoted a rate to me as "plus tip" and I replied that tips have to be earned to which he said he would be an experience and worth it. Well...he was an experience but certainly not worth it at all and the subsequent negative review bore that out. No he was not tipped either.

Little do you know that when interviewing prospective employees, the supermarket presents this to them as a "fringe benefit".

Anton, it sounds like you hit the nail on the head.

I think that escorts who ask for tips would be wiser to just set a higher fee, rather than asking for a tip, or if they are a very good escort the chances of them recieving a tip is probably pretty good, so why even bring it up?

I just find it offensive, its almost like an escort is saying to himself, "he accepted my fee, now lets see if I can up the anty by asking for a tip"

I just received a reply from an escort on Americanmale.net who states in his profile: "I am only able to meet at hotels in my city. I will do it for very cheap, and promise that I will make your night worthwhile! Anything goes, but I bottom only! PLEASE CONTACT ME BY E-MAIL ONLY!"

 

He e-mails me: "I charge $200 an hour with the understanding that the money will be in plain site and in the open when I arrive. TIPS are always appreciated. Let me know when you want to meet."

 

His myspace page indicates that he's a drug user (marijuana/alcohol).

 

Anyway, he lives 2 hours away (each way) plus I'd have to purchase a hotel room for the night.

 

$200 per hour doesn't seem to be "very cheap" as he indicated in his escort profile and he's not the cutest escort I've seen, but when he posted the "tips" comment that totaly turned me off!
