Changes are afoot in Courtesan World…
Livvy rethinks her rates, making herself available for shorter bookings and lowering the multiple-hour rate:
So there you have it! The English Courtesan believes that after many months of minor tweaking, she has now found her equilibrium price, with a pricing strategy that is premium enough to place her as a Giffen good in the rockonomics league, equitable enough to encourage the like-minded and reasonable enough to encourage regular bookings where both parties are agreeable.
I’m thinking more and more about this – how perhaps the whole point of moving into upscale whoring is that I can be me, I can be a lover whose time is purchased rather than a whore whose services are the product. What’s valuable about me is real me – Mandy is a lot more interesting and worth a lot more money for her time than the person I have pretended to be for my clients so far.
I don’t feel so anxious anymore. I don’t feel guilty, either. Telling the truth about where I am and what I am doing feels good, like a commodity I didn’t have before. Though I still have some personal issues to sort out, I feel emotionally available for a relationship. I don’t miss the nervousness and fear before seeing a client for the first time, in case he is a cop or worse. I would always wonder about it, second guess myself and often consider canceling due to nerves or turning around when I was half-way there. I am excited to no longer have to deal with fat, skid marks, sagging skin, bad breath, excess body hair, smelly crotches, stranger sweat, impotence, miniature dicks and old men.
And Compartments switches focus to BDSM, so far having difficulty acquiring clientele (it’s early yet!):
My phone number is not listed on my BDSM ad. Instead I’ve instructed anybody interested to send me a description of what they want me to do to them, along with the day and time they expect to meet. After that I send along my phone number.
But it seems a lot of these guys just want to engage in kinky correspondence without ever meeting in person.
Something’s definitely in the air.
