Why Escorts are Always a Better Deal than Relationships or Marriage: 3

October 21, 2018 21 comments

In the previous post of this series, I wrote about how my decision to keep using escorts while still looking for a meaningful relationship (in the 2001-2005 timespan) finally started to convince me that conventional relationships were a sad charade. The short version of that story is that I could easily find escorts who were 7s to 9s in addition to be great in bed.. or wherever we did it.. but still struggled to find 5s and 6s who were interested in having sex with me. This is not to say that I could not find anybody, because there were a few. The amount of effort necessary, willingness to tolerate bullshit, in addition to mediocre quality of sex- more due to their lack of looks than enthusiasm, did however make me cynical about normie relationships.

Frequent rejections by totally mediocre looking girls also gave me a serious case of burnout in the ‘relationship’ department. I mean.. why would a sane person who can easily afford to eat in nice restaurants want to keep on trying to be a decent cook at home? There are those among you who might say that “it would be have been different if you were taller, more muscular, white etc”. You know what.. that might very well be the case, but these are things I just cannot change. Also caring about the norms of a society which does not care about you is sad and retarded. It did not help that I never felt any strong emotional connection with any of these “unpaid” chicks.

Of course, it took me till 2009-2010 to definitively reach that point . But before going over the period between 2005 to 2010, let me tell you a bit more about what I did between late 2000 and 2005- specifically between 2003 and 2004. You will soon see why that was an important period. Have you ever wondered about the depths of sexual “depravity” that I have plumbed? See.. in the 2000 to mid-2002 period my use of escorts was somewhat limited for a couple of reasons. For one, I was getting reasonable quality sex from a few economically challenged chicks who received indirect compensation for their efforts.

During that approximately (first) two-year period I ended up banging 4-5 “amateurs” with some degree of regularity and somewhere between 15-18 escorts, though a few from the later category received multiple repeats. Some of you might say that is pretty good for any guy, and that would be correct. However, my sexual encounters with every single one of these chicks was a financial transaction- direct or indirect. And my lack of success with “unpaid” chicks during this period was not for lack of trying. I tried approaching tons of chicks, went on a few dates- but things were not going anywhere. There is something uniquely unpleasant about facing constant rejection from average to sub-average chicks.

As mentioned in the previous post of this series, I thought that moving to a bigger city for a job that paid even better than my old one would help- and it kinda did. Over a period of a little over two more years, I did have semi-frequent “unpaid” sex with three chicks, one of who was a low 7 (if that helps). I also had some luck in cougar bars, which is really like shooting fish in a barrel- but could not get myself to do it more than couple of times. Sounds good.. right? Now I will tell you why that was not the case, and it has to do with an important change in my pattern of escort use during the same period.

Before late 2002, my use of escorts was not especially high for a number of reasons- including my ability to pay for their services. But after starting at my new job towards the end of 2002, it was possible to spend way more on escorts- and spend I did. It got to the point where I averaged one new escort per week, not to mention repeats from some of them. Long story short, there was a period of 52 weeks where I went through 55 or 56 new escorts (probably around 80 new ones in total during that two-year period). Also, one threesome counts as two escorts. This period also partially overlapped at least two of those “unpaid” chicks. When I look back at this period, it does seem a bit excessive. Then again, doing it with attractive chicks who are good at it, is lots of fun.

I probably crossed the three digit threshold sometime in 2004, though by this point it really did not matter. It had all become an endless collage of beautiful women with great bodies getting banged by me or riding on top, blowing me and more, spanking them and so on.. the stuff dreams are made of and I enjoyed every moment of it. During that time (and since then) I have fucked everything from toned and hot black chicks, latinas of various admixtures, east-european chicks etc. This is also why mediocre “unpaid” chicks no longer cut it. But there was more..

At that time, I would still have traded my lifestyle for a long-term relationship with a 6 or 7 with whom I had a strong connection, beyond the physical. But as time passed, it became increasingly obvious that “unpaid” chicks were just as self-centered as the “paid” ones. They wanted sacrifices from my end but were completely unwilling to do so at their end. To put it another way, I simply could not see any of them being trustworthy and willing to reciprocate to the degree necessary to preclude my continued use of escorts. It was simply not worth taking that route. It did, however, take me till 2008-2009 to reach a point where I had made my mind, for good.

In the next part of this series, I will explain how a series of not-so-great experiences at finding “unpaid” sex (in the 2005-2009 period) made me finally give up that idea. Spoiler alert: this realization has to do with how even mediocre women, especially in the West, see themselves.

Why Escorts are Always a Better Deal than Relationships or Marriage: 2

October 4, 2018 17 comments

In the previous post of this series, I wrote that using escorts for over a decade changes how one sees the world- in ways most cannot even imagine. Normie relationships, once a tolerable option to escorts, now feel pathetic and devoid of meaning. Many ideologies from MRA and traditionalism to MGTOW and new-agey BS sounds ridiculous, though to be fair.. one can reach that conclusion by many other routes. The same is true of most ‘game’ and ‘seduction’ communities, which bear more than a passing resemblance to religious and secular cults.

But what does any of this have to do with special insights provided by using escorts for well over a decade? Surely, one can arrive at the same conclusions about relationships, ideologies and belief systems without using escorts.. right? Well.. yes, you certainly can arrive at broadly similar conclusions via many other pathways. The difference comes down to how you integrate all of it into a self-consistent mental model of human behavior and society. Confused? Don’t be.. I will explain everything in detail (as much as is possible and prudent).

But before we go any further, there is one thing I want to be open about. Some of my older posts might give the impression that the switch from getting sporadic “unpaid” sex to purchasing it regularly was relatively quick and complete. The real story is more complicated. While I did start using escorts in the early 2000s and have not stopped since, I did not give up on the idea of normie relationships right away. It was almost 2010, before I finally gave up on it. Readers might see a connection between that time frame and my first posts on this blog.

There was a period of almost 8-9 years where I was used escorts regularly, but had not totally given up on the idea of having long-term relationships. Some of you might say.. “but didn’t you have some atrocious prior experiences with attempts at normie relationships. Well.. yes, that is true. However, I did get some sporadic and mediocre ass during those years and part of me never stopped wondering if it was possible to improve on that.

But where did I get this odd idea? As some of you might remember, I did not take any student loans during my M.Sc and money was tight during those years. During that time period, I often wondered if my chances at getting decent-looking chicks without mental issues would have been better if I had a decent job, more money or preferably both. A few months after finishing my M.Sc, I finally got a reasonably OK job that paid really well for being part-time. Adjusted for inflation, it would be around 50k in 2018 and with zero student loans or debt of any kind. Not bad for working noon-5pm, five days a week.

I started going out more, buying nice clothes and shoes, eating in nice restaurants and generally living a comfortable life. This is also when I first started to use escorts and also help a few poor chicks in exchange for personal services. I also tried meeting women through a variety of routes- from bars and pubs, book readings and concerts to internet dating sites. And yes, I did meet a few somewhat acceptable women through those routes. However, the attitude of those few along with the very high number of racists, flakes and delusional women pushed me further and further way from conventional dating.

I mean.. why would I invest so much time, effort and patience into meeting women or developing relationships when all I really wanted (sex with hot women) could be purchased at a reasonable hourly rate? You could say that this was this was the beginning of my permanent disillusionment with dating. But why, then, did I not lose all hope in finding relationships at that time? Well.. there are a couple or reasons. Firstly, some of my quasi-financial relationships with poor chicks were emotionally satisfying enough to keep alive that possibility. Secondly, I felt that moving to a more cosmopolitan city might alleviate issues related to racism.

A couple of years later, I got a full-time job near a large cosmopolitan city. This one paid even better than the previous one (obviously!) and the work environment was generally good. So I did what I had done previously on a larger scale. Long story short- I went to tons of different bars, large public events, talked up many chicks in public settings, tried many dating sites etc. Just to clear, I never stopped using escorts. Sure.. I was more successful in the conventional sense (especially in bars frequented by cougars and heavy drinkers) and did manage to bang a few OK looking chicks who I first met under ‘normal’ circumstances.

However the amount of time and effort I had to put into getting decent looking chicks was just too high, as compared to just using escorts. Banging a chubby chick who waits tables at some nearby restaurant is a far inferior experience to banging a model-level escort. OK.. a 20-year old moderately chubby chick who likes to take a pounding is not bad, but what do you do after that? Similarly, doing it with an average-looking 30-something chick (with a BF) who worked as a cook in yet another restaurant pales next to an enthusiastic pretty spinner who looks deliciously underage. But there was more to this than looks alone..

I never felt a real emotional or intellectual connection with any of these women. I never felt any certainty about a potential relationship. I never felt my life would be somehow incomplete without them. I never felt anything beyond what I had already felt for women who have sex for money. Conventional relationships started to feel like a sad charade which provided less than what one can buy but require much more time and personal involvement. This is also the one period in my life where I drank a lot, almost every single day. In retrospective, this had a lot to do with a general dissatisfaction about my attempts at forming relationships.

Since we are already at a thousand words, I will wrap up this post now. In the next one, I will tell you how my attempts at relationships (after the second job) during my PhD ended up validating what I had long suspected about relationships. FYI- It was towards the end of this next period that I finally become the deeply cynical and misanthropic person you all know today. This post has a lot of Is, doesn’t it?

Why Escorts are Always a Better Deal than Relationships or Marriage: 1

September 16, 2018 52 comments

As long-time readers of this blog will recall, some of my oldest posts have been about how to use escorts (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4), how I started using escorts (link 5) and why escorts are a better deal that ‘real’ women (link 6, link 7 and link 8 and link 9). I did not write on that subject again for a few years, but did answer those who asked me further questions about that topic. Some might wonder as to why I did not keep you guys updated about my continuing exploits with escorts over the last few years. Well.. it is kinda like why people who frequent restaurants (and are not food critics or social media whores) don’t keep writing about the joys of eating in them.

One can say the sky is blue and ice is cold only so many times before it becomes highly repetitive and boring- rather like those endless superhero movie sequels. I am not in the business of selling a lifestyle, seminars, books, supplements etc. My personal choice to use escorts and encourage their use by others is something which I believe in as a matter of principle. Having said that, I thought it would be a good idea to write something new on the subject, especially as it relates to the effects of using escorts for a decade and half, by now. You do remember that I first started using them when I was in my early 20s, right?

So, it has been a pretty long time since I first went down that path and still have no regrets whatsoever about taking it. Everything I wrote on this blog, years ago, was correct to a degree which continues to surprise me even today. My insights on, for example, how relationships and marriage are a shitty deal for most men turned out to be better projections of the evolution of relationship between the sexes in western countries since that time. I also was correct in pointing out that ‘game’ and ‘seduction’ were inherently flawed belief systems, since they did not address the fundamental dysfunction which resides at the heart of this problem.

In my opinion, the core disconnect between men and women in allegedly developed countries comes down to a gross misalignment of checks and incentives. To put it bluntly, there are no consequences for a woman if she decides to do anything from divorce her husband out of the blue, dump her boyfriend for no good reason, give sexual favors to advance her career and call it sexual assault later, force her male child to grow up as a tyranny and pretty much anything else along those lines. Contrast this to the public outrage and pillorying faced by a guy who attempts the male equivalent of those actions and behavior.

And let us not kid ourselves.. whatever is left of MRA-ism, conventional MGTOW-ism, most ‘game’ and ‘seduction’ communities is a big fucking joke as are the pathetic attempts to restore masculinity by alt-right idiots. Pretty much every supposedly “masculine” community is filled with captain save-a-hoes, delusional incels, shlubby white guys who end with Asian chicks, “reformed” players and other virtue pimps- not to mention all those greedy losers who want to sell you everything from bitcoin schemes, dietary supplements, books on positive thing and “perseverance porn”. In other words, there is not much real help from conventional sources for the average guy who wants to have sex with at least semi-attractive girl who can get him consistently hard.

There are a few good sources for advice on what to do once in a relationship, but they are not terribly helpful if you don’t have one in the first place. Sure.. you could try Tinder or some other dating/hook-up site/app and meet a few girls. Maybe you could even end up having have occasional sex or short-term relationships with some of them. But we keep coming back to the same problem, namely that most men can’t get a better deal than some sad relationship with a treacherous woman they can barely tolerate or a series of uncertain and irregular sexual encounters with women they would rather not be seen with. The key words being “most men”.

Which brings me the reason I started writing about using escorts in the first place. To quickly summarize: life is too short to endure a series of shitty relationships or quasi-relationships with women who don’t care about you and are nowhere as good-looking as you would like, in the hopes that you will one day have a pleasant relationship with some woman who is reasonably ok-looking and not likely to screw you over or financially exploit you for rest of life. I say.. just cut the middleman and make it explicitly transactional. Sure, you are not going to find a soul-mate that way- but how many people around you have found one, and not for the lack of trying!

To those who object to the financial exchange inherent in such interactions- it is way cheaper than divorce, child-support, alimony not to mention the costs of shitty dates and vacations. Face it- unless you are a famous, handsome, physically buff or financially successful guy, you are not getting it for free with anyone beyond an average-looking chick. And if you are fine with an average looker, that is your choice. I am just pointing out that there are far better options, if you are willing to think and act outside the prison of conventional feminized social conditioning.

In upcoming posts of this new series, I will explore (in some detail) about how using escorts for a pretty long time has changed the way I see women and the world in general. Yes, it does change your world view to the point where normie relationships usually appear sad, pathetic and meaningless. But it does more than that, you see. It changes your perspective on society, humanity and what you believe is possible or worthwhile in areas that are not even remotely connected to sex. It provides you the ultimate outsider perspective on human beings a species.

To be clear, I am not suggesting that you do it for reasons not connected to having sex with semi-attractive (or better) women.. but ya, it does change how you see the world in ways most of you would not ever imagine.

Some More Thoughts on Alex Minassian and the Toronto Van Attack

May 2, 2018 23 comments

In my previous post on this topic, written the day after that incident, I made a few points about Alex Minassian (based on what we knew about him at that time) and wondered about the precise combination of factors which finally triggered him to run over and kill all those people. Since then, we have come to come to know a lot more about this individual such as the fact that he was somewhat autistic but ended up becoming a reasonably competent software developer. There are, however, many important questions which still remain to be answered.

1] What drove him to finally rent that van and drive over all those people on that particular day? Why did he not do it a few weeks or even few months ago? Clearly, there must have been some incident or combination of events in the days or weeks preceding his rampage which made him go from being just another incel who frequented online boards to a guy who killed at least ten people. Also, why did he not plan his attack to cause even more casualties, since there are far busier streets and sidewalks in Toronto.

2] Given his background in computers and apparently good understanding of the online world, why is his known online presence so sparse? Or did he use multiple aliases and profiles? Also, did he ever avail himself of the rather plentiful and fairly inexpensive opportunities for paid sex in Toronto? It would be very interesting to know if that was the case, because it seems that he did not do so (as far as we know, right now). But why not? Clearly, he must have been aware of the thousands of escorts in the GTA who freely advertise their services online. So did he or not?

3] Alek claimed in his last (and only) FaceBook post that his being an ‘incel’ was the only reason behind him running over and killing all those people. This claim has, in turn, started a media circus- especially in its clueless corporate outlets. Overnight, a whole cottage industry of “experts” are being paraded by corporate media outlets whose median audience member is over 65 years old. It is funny to watch idiots with less than zero understanding of the online ‘incel’ community, let alone the whole disenfranchised male-o-sphere, spout their utterly ridiculous claims on that part of the internet.

4] There is the whole issue of every lame-stream corporate media outlet publishing their versions of the how “society does not owe men sex”- a topic that I had written about in the past. To make a long story short, it seems that every mainstream dumbfuck.. I mean ‘journalist’ is writing virtually identical posts populated by the same cast of “experts” tying themselves in rhetorical knots to push out the same sound-bites (example 1, example 2 and example 3). Of course, these pathetic opinion pieces and “investigative reports” do nothing other than expose the cultural illiteracy and general disconnect of its writers and cast of “experts” from reality.

5] And this brings me to the next category of idiots spouting bullshit about the cause of this incident, you know.. CONservatives. Yes, idiots professing that ideology are also out in full force publishing their pathetic screeds about how traditional CONservative “values” could have prevented this incident. I have come across multiple blog posts about how something like this would have never occurred in a society with 1950-era values and mores. The fact that such societies only existed in 1950-era TV shows and the minds of simpletons delusional enough to believe that such shows represented reality is largely lost on CONservatives.

6] The views of self-proclaimed feminists, their “male allies” and SJWs (in general) on this incident are also equally detached from reality. They appear to have used the same basic template, which goes something like this.. insert incident for outrage here, women are oppressed, patriarchy is bad, men are scum/ irrelevant/ pathetic, some international theory, future is women and some filler bullshit. I have seen more creativity and originality in the movies of Michael Bay. Is it too much to expect them to exhibit some novelty and creativity in their screeds? Then again, they are shouting inside their own echo chamber..

By now you must have noticed an interesting meta- pattern running through all these news stories, “investigative” reports and angry screeds about Alek Minassian and incels in general. In case you haven’t, let me point out the fucking obvious. All these opinions, reports and screeds go to considerable lengths to avoid addressing the central stated reason behind his decision to run over and kill all those people. So.. do you believe that “low status”, “poor” and “weird” men deserve to have sex with women?

Answering this question truthfully is key to predicting what happens next. If you honestly believe that “society does not owe men sex” then you have to ponder on the implications of its corollary- that men experiencing such deprivation are unlikely to care about the continued stability or even existence of your society. While each dysfunctional and decaying society throughout human history has been unique in its own way, they have all shared one feature- namely, that a significant minority of its members have a less-than-zero investment in its continued existence. Ignoring such systemic problem can, at best, push back the expiry date of that society by a little bit. It does not, however, change the eventual outcome.

Some Initial Thoughts on Alex Minassian and the Toronto Van Attack

April 24, 2018 31 comments

Yesterday a guy known as Alex Minassian drove a rented van on the sidewalk along Yonge Street in Toronto, killing at least 10 people and injuring about 15 more. He later tried to get killed by confronting the cops. However Canadian cops are nowhere as trigger happy as the american counterparts and in the end he was arrested without incident. Since incidents such as these are rather unusual in Canada, it is worth looking into why an otherwise nondescript guy studying computer science at a local community college decided to do something usually associated with religious-inspired terrorism.

1] Let us talk about the first and most obvious question that came into the mind of many people when they first heard about this incident- namely, was he a Muslim? Well.. given his surname, it is almost certain he is Armenian. As some of you might know, Armenians are unabashedly and almost exclusively Christian with most of them being of the Armenian Apostolic branch of the Church. While you do infrequently come across Armenians who converted to religions other than Christianity, it is rather uncommon. So.. ya, the guy almost certainly did not run over all those people because some Saudi-born mullah told him to do so.

2] One of the less publicized and “newsworthy” part of this story is that he was taking courses related to IT and programming at a well-known local community college. It seems that he was even listed as the developer in more than one app, including one to locate parking spots in Toronto– and yes, I can see the irony. To be clear, the guy may have issues with being shy and withdrawn when growing up- but he most certainly has a higher than average intelligence. Also a new report which showed the house he lived in suggests that the guy (or his parents) were reasonably well off.

3] And this brings us to some news reports, which I first saw late yesterday, claiming that he had posted on Facebook just before the rampage about being an ‘incel’ and being inspired by Elliot Roger’s 2014 killing spree around Santa Barbara. As I have said in older posts (link 1, link 2, link 3), the ‘supreme gentleman’ probably had a far bigger cultural impact than many people are willing to believe. While I did initially consider such a connection sketchy and likely a prank perpetrated by the good people on 4chan and 8chan, the evidence stacking up since yesterday suggests that it was the likely reason for his rampage.

4] Which brings me to an interesting question about his likely motivations. You see.. prostitution in Canada, though technically not legal, is very widespread (especially in large metros), openly advertised, relatively inexpensive and fairly safe. The guy could easily have easily chosen between thousands of escorts, paid somewhere between 200-350 Canadian dollars per hour, and had satisfying sex with some pretty hot women. The question, then, is whether he availed himself of these services or not. The guy was clearly not dead broke and wanted female sexual companionship. So did he or did he not?

5] Another important question is whether he was looking for something between sexual companionship by the hour. I suspect that he wanted something beyond casual paid sex, specifically attention from and adoration by at least one woman he was fucking. While I personally do not understand the insipid and worthless ego boosts that some men seem to get from such bullshit, it still seems to be an issue for some men. I have always wondered if men with borderline autism or similar neuro-atypical stuff are especially prone to seek such validation from women.

6] The lack of a manifesto or some sort of public explanation by him is also a bit peculiar, especially since the guy was fairly proficient with computers. I mean.. he could have easily posted a written or video manifesto in a manner that would ensure its automatic release to a large audience a few hours after his rampage. So did he write or make a video about his motivations? What about postings to forums frequented by tech-savvy NEETs? Also what drove him to go on that rampage yesterday, rather than say the day before that or the previous month or previous year? In other words, what was the specific trigger for this rampage.

Will write more on this topic based on further revelations and reader responses.

How to Use Escorts: IV

January 7, 2010 55 comments

In a previous post on this subject, I had talked about using online resources to optimize your experience with escorts. I will answer the other half of the question today: agency or independent contractor?

Before I say anything more, remember this:

If you are a newbie, your best experience will probably with a well-researched escort from an established, but not too expensive agency.

Now there are some caveats about using agencies:

1. Never use an agency that boasts of an elite client base. They are just lazy, snobby ripoffs.
2. Never use agencies that require you to pay in advance.
3. Stop patronizing any agency that sides with a gal you had to send back. Trust me, that happens.
4. Anything above 300$/hr and without MSOG is not worth it, no exceptions!

If you perform enough background research and use common sense, you will have a very pleasurable experience with an agency escort. It also helps that many agencies have lots of new faces, and the owners appreciate good repeat customers.

The quality of independent contractors can vary greatly, however as long as you perform a skeptical review check and take common sense precautions- you will be fine. Indeed the true gems in the escort business are often independent contractors.

As many of you know, escorts can be either incalls or outcalls. While each type has its pros and cons, which I discuss in a future article- outcalls are often the safer option. Also note that established agencies do not send any man/ driver along with your outcall to your door, and that is one of the sure signs of a scam or shakedown. The usual pattern involves somebody or a cab to drop her off, a quick phone call that she has reached, and one after the hour (or more) is over when someone or a cab to pick her up. That is it! Anything more than that is a bad sign, and feel free to bailout of such a scenario.

Any man who accompanies escorts to your door, hangs around in your house, property, floor of hotel is a sign of a scam or amateurs. At most, the guy can sit in the lobby/ bar of the hotel. Also be very suspicious of more than one guy accompanying the escort.

I have more suggestions for things to watch out for when using incalls, in my next post in this series. After that I will talk about massage parlours etc..

And one more thing:

If an escort is significantly different from her online description (official or reviews), send her away. You should not have to pay 200-300$ for an inferior lay, that is what committed men do.. Every wonder why the same word is used for a man in a relationship and one in a mental asylum?

How to Use Escorts- III

January 3, 2010 13 comments

My last post on this topic yielded one very good question:

Do you have any online resources you would recommend? Also, does it make more sense to go through an agency or use an independent contractor?

The simple answer to the first question is- through escort review boards. The complex answer is below:

The internet is one of the two great revolutions in finding a good escort. As early as 1997, escort review boards and newsgroups for most major cities in the western world were already up. They have evolved over time, and become better and larger. While the earlier ones were yahoo and msn based, since 2000 most are hosted independently and have a more stable existence.

How do I find them:

1. Use your favorite search engine with no result filtering. You are looking for explicit content, not approved family-friendly content. I use google, though bing is just as good.

2. Use query strings such as “x escort review board”, “x escort review bulletin board”, “x escort bulletin board” where x= name of city. Such searches will often net you multiple good leads.

3. Make sure that you are using a secure browser (updated firefox, chrome, opera) with the appropriate browser security settings. I cannot stress this enough, because some fake (or legitimate sites) might try to install malware. Please use your personal computer for such research. Good quality non-work connectivity (outside your home) can be obtained from a number of sources- starbucks or tethering your smartphone.

4. Now browse each hit, carefully and methodically. Take notes if necessary. A genuine escort review board will have some advertisements, but is usually a very plain affair with a clear separation of advertisements and reviews. Most boards are powered by vBulletin.

5. Most boards, especially in the USA require you to become a member to read reviews. Outside the USA, membership is usually necessary only for commenting. Membership to genuine escort review boards is always free. The advertisements (often in a separate section) pay for the board. Do not use a throwaway e-mail address or your real name (yahoo and gmail pseudonym addresses are respectable).

6. BBs have an etiquette. Explicit language is discouraged for legal reasons, especially in the USA (land of the free). The FAQ, informal glossaries and common sense are the best guides to understanding reviews. If you read such boards for between 1-3 months, you will understand the ‘scene’ in that city very well. Do not expect long timers to give you explicit tips, and as always use multiple sources before you make a decision.

7. If multiple boards are available for a given city, use them! As always, keep notes- so you can track reviews and cross reference them. There are many fine addons in firefox (browser) to help you capture text and create rudimentary databases, as you are data-mining.

8. Craiglist is an interesting source of leads on local review boards, as many escorts mention their positive reviews on such boards- but beware of shills (both reviews and overtly positive boards). Shill reviews for escorts are similar to shill reviews on amazon/ ebay, and can be largely eliminated by cross-referencing and using your common sense.

9. Do not let your dick make decisions. I cannot stress that enough..

In the next post, I will answer the second part of the question: How to arrive at a decision and the relative merits/ perils of different types of service providers.

Part 4 is now up: How to Use Escorts- IV
