Another online advertiser that’s been around for years has never changed one highly offensive paragraph on their site. They offered me a free ad a long time ago but when I read through their site, I decided they weren’t for me. They’re still in business, so they must be doing something right. I’ve just wanted to write about this one for a few years.
Though they give some basic common-sense advice to potential advertisers, they offer to re-write your ad to appeal to “upscale clientele”. Fair enough. But do “upscale” clients visit this site? I question this because…they immediately follow the mini-advertising lesson with making sure a girl understands to price herself “reasonably” because clients aren’t going to pay good money to take her out on (movie, yachting, dinner, etc.) dates if she expects to be well-compensated for every hour even if she doesn’t “have to take her clothes off.” They think an escort should only charge a lot per hour if she’s entertaining a bachelor party of 30+ guys (and I guess a smaller bachelor party doesn’t count). Which every escort I know does every weekend (rolling my eyes).
Though I totally agree the girls who put up with bachelor parties have every right to charge more for the hassle, it’s hard to make that argument in an ad or website without implying she’s selling sex for money. Those who do usually sound like they’re charging money for sex, which is illegal in the US. (Advertising bachelor party shows are a different concept than doing bachelor parties.)
Right after this lesson in what they think clients are really paying for — gang-bangs, not companionship — they tell a girl to not imply offers of sexual services for money in her ads — like using Greek as a code word, because she could end up arrested. Yes, that is true. But…
Gotta wonder if newbie advertisers looking for advertising/marketing advice suffer conceptual whiplash after reading through this page. Clearly, the people (probably men) running this site think their advertisers are only exchanging sex for money. They’re not alone in that opinion and that’s not what bothers me.
It’s the very misguided attempt at “helping” a newbie that’s so dangerous. They’re not doing her any favors. Good lord, they make it sound like doing huge bachelor party gang-bangs is de rigueur for an escort — which it is certainly not. And it makes her think she needs to consult them and their beliefs before setting her rates — which she does not (consulting her monthly bills is the smarter place to start).
Once again, someone is attempting to put unnecessary control on an independent escort. If they took out the rates/bachelor party paragraph, they’d actually have a perfectly useful and sensible advertising/marketing advice page.
But…if you do think you’re paying for the pussy, then understand the pussy does not belong to you and she who owns it makes the rules.
