Escorts vs. AMPs
Mid-last year is when I started dabbling with Escorts more once they started advertising $80 "quickie" rates. At that point, escorts became competitive with even 40/40 R&T places.
In terms of which is better, it depends what experience you're looking for. In terms of dollar value, escorts win hands down. In San Diego, the cheapest you can get F/S at an AMP is $150 total damage and up to $200-220, just for half hour sessions. With escorts, you can get F/S for $80-120 if they have "specials" and for $200 you can usually spend a whole hour. That said, here are some of the Pros, Cons, I've noticed with escorts.
- Cheaper (at least for now). Instead of a rushed tug from a 45 year-old Chinese lady who will barely lift up her shirt, for $80 you can have a quick CBJ/FS from a young naked coed.
- Greater variety. You can explore outside the realm of middle-age asian ladies and try women from a variety of ethnicities young and old.
- Pictures. Instead of relying on someone else's interpretation of beauty, you can look at pictures yourself and see what you're getting. Yeah there are a lot of fake photos (believe me I know), but if you stick to reviewed girls, this really isn't a problem.
- Harder to schedule. Escorts typically don't have set hours or days and many are notoriously unreliable. They can flake at the last minute or leave you sitting in the car for 15-20 minutes while they "get ready". As they say, always have a backup.
- Very business-like or poor technique. Often times many of the cheaper escorts are very business-like even if they're friendly. You're not going to be treated like a King like you would at many of the Korean AMPs. Also you'll find quite a few younger escorts who can't/won't do a proper HJ due to inexperience or demand to have everything covered including the HJ. They just want to slap on the cover and get it over with. If you want a GFE escort, generally you'll have to pay more.
- More of a paper trail so to speak. With escorts, you have to call or text message set things up. Even if you have a hobby phone, you have to make sure to keep it well-hidden. Also parking at a hotel is a little more blatant than parking by an AMP in a plaza. Also escorts who smoke, the smoke filled room could cling to your clothes.
- Riskier. You can minimize your risk of course, but seeing an escort is inherently riskier than going to an AMP. With AMPs, LE targets the girls and the business. With escorts, LE targets the girls and the mongers. So you have to factor that in and always make sure the situation passes the smell test.
For the budget, I think escorts are the way to go for now if you're looking for straight CBJs & F/S. But personally once I have a little more money to spend on the hobby, I'm going to try for agency AAMPs. They seem to merge some of the best elements of AMPs and Escorts.
