Follow Up From Cozumel
$300 US for pussy in Mexico? Hmm?
Was in Cozumel recently at one of the clubs. A girl approached me, very pretty but she wanted $200, including the room, the condom, the towel, whatever. Her English was good and when I said that was way more than I would spend she eventually went down to $175. She left when I said "No, thank you. "
I know a hotel maid makes 750 pesos a week here. Mexico has a lot of social benefits that the employer pays in addition to salary. So when you add that in say it's more like 1, 500 pesos. So what's that in "real money"? The exhange rate recently was 10. 4. So $100. 00 US got you 1, 040 pesos, approximately 2/3rds of a week's work for a maid.
What that says to me is that $200 US is a foolish rich gringo price. If I was a local that would not be the price. Now I am a gringo and don't even speak much Spanish. In comparison to them I am rich. So okay, I am willing to pay a premium, but what's reasonable?
Now I was in the same club last spring and arranged to meet a girl after work and drive her home. We're talking 2-3 AM, pretty late for a geezer like me. I did not want to go in to her apartment. She seemed very cool and there is very little crime against persons in Cozumel.
Nevertheless I opted for a BJ in the car and ***paid maybe $30 US. *** So now I know the local price is a lot less.
When I went back this time I did not have a car and could not do such a late night thing. But I digress. What's a reasonable premium to pay because I am a tourist? Well, what do the locals pay?
I found a local weekly newspaper that covered Cancun, Playa del Carman, and Cozumel. My Spanish is weak but I can tell when I come to the classified ads for sex. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what they are advertising when they had pictures of hot scantily clad women.
So out comes the computer for the online dictionary of the "special" words.completo, guapa, yes this is it. So what are the prices? They start at 20 and run up to 50. Even saw one special of 50 for two girls. This is pesos, not dollars.
Unfortunately for me the girls are all up in Cancun. So can not check it out this trip. Next time there will definitely be a single side trip to Cancun.
The R/T on the ferry to Playa is $22 US. The nice bus to Cancun is $7 US R/T. Get a room downtown, away from the hotel zone, $30-40 US. It would not be hard to get a local to call the numbers and negotiate for me, $10 US. That's $87 US, at most. If I had a $300 budget that leaves $213.
So what will I actually pay for the chicas? I don't know but my negotiating position would start out at local prices and with a local as my mouthpiece it sure wouldn't be $175. Or the $300 figures I have seen.
You have the right to spend whatever you want but do you really want to be paying 10 times what the locals pay?
