How was the prevailing rate ever "set"?

I might as well admit it: I've had few experiences hiring. Seven different people, total, I think; and two of those have been multiple visits over the years.

So I have some experience, but not a lot.

 

How does the rate get set, historically? How did it ever hit $200? And, almost more importantly, why?

 

It's mostly a philosophical question. I'm retiring in 20 days, and I don't yet know how to budget my prurient interests.

 

Enquiring minds want to know!

Oddly enough, the rate is one of the purest classical market rates you are likely to encounter in ordinary life. Too high a rate and too many new guys enter the business, creating new capacity that puts a downward pressure on the price. Too low a rate and too many guys can't make enough to be worth their while & drop out and the resulting demand for remaining working guys allows them to raise the price they charge.

 

I suppose social disapproval and John Law act to suppress supply to some unknowable extent just as as cultural stigma acts to supress hiring, but, given that, it's pretty much good old supply and demand. One thing that's new in the last 20 years is that the net has brought an unheard of degree of transparancy to the whole process.

While the prevailing rate might be $200+ here and on some of the advertisements you see where they bother list rates at all, I assure you that it is NOT the prevailing rate. Anonymous posters will tell you to stay clear of rates below what they want you to pay. I will leave the reasons for this to your imagination. I have kissed my share of 200+ frogs as well and from my experience the cost of the service has absolutely NO correlation with quality.

 

If you are a cost concious connoisseur of escorts and you are willing to kiss a frog or two before you find your prince, you can do quite well out there and stretch your budget nicely.

 

The "200+" prevailing rate perpetuated here has nothing to do with supply and demand!

Congrats on your Retirement, I have 5 yrs to go, and am sooooo envious.

 

I would make the escorts the priority, and then budget your leftovers.... Hell, if you run out of money, the govt will take care of you...:D

LOL, one of the best nights I ever had was with a 20 year old blonde twink semipro I picked up outside a club on Lamar in Memphis. About $150, not including the room or supper. But you are confusing market niche with market price.

 

I fully agree, however, that market segmentation is at least as much about marketing as it is about the quality of the experience.

I base my rate on the economy and the rates other escorts in my area charge. Some are ridiculously overpriced. I think I am pretty reasonable with my clients and if I have repeat clients they get a good sized discount as well. 150/hr, 3 for 400, overnight is 700. Regular clients get a great discount from those rates. I love all my clients!
