If you’re looking for sexual services in Las Vegas, should you hire an escort or visit a legal brothel?
I’ve discussed the pros and cons of both in my post on Las Vegas brothels and escorts.
Now, to add to the discussion, here’s “Juan,” a TVO commenter who recently posted about his experience with a Las Vegas escort he engaged through Eros.com. (You can find his original comment here).
My Eros Escort Experience
I look through the authenticated girls and purposely don’t choose any VIP ones. I figure those will be too expensive.
I find a petite, fit 22-year-old who has both a telephone number and an email address. Her pictures look nice and her description of the “girlfriend experience” sounds like exactly what I want.
I email her and she is enthusiastic about meeting me and giving me the GFE I am looking for. She mentions she charges $500 for one hour of her time for companionship only and anything else we can discuss in person. She also says I should make provisions for extra time over the hour. All seems fine to me. I told her I might call her two nights in a row. I figured if I enjoyed it one night, I might enjoy an encore. Plus, I am setting the tone for future business and letting her know I am not just a one-timer.
So now I’m in my hotel room in Las Vegas and I call her to come over. While waiting, I order champagne and some finger foods. I was going to enjoy the GFE and make it last.
She calls me back to verify I’m in the room and to see if she needs me to show a key to get her upstairs (she doesn’t). She shows up and could care less that I had food and drink. She is also 10-15 years older than her pictures and profile on Eros, but it is her.
She doesn’t really want my face anywhere near her face (so much for GFE). She asked me if I know how “this works.” I tell her yes and hand her $500. She then asks me for $1000 more. At this point I should have said “No, not until we’re done and I’d be happy to tip you …,” but I didn’t want to negotiate, I wanted her to relax and entertain me.
So I said okay and handed her another $1000. Immediately she asked me for another $1000. I was too agreeable apparently, but now I say no. I told her I would be happy to tip her more if I am happy with the service. She asks me if another $1000 is possible. I tell her no. She asks about $500. I tell her yes.
Okay, now I’m ready. She clearly doesn’t want any touching or foreplay. She immediately takes off all my clothes. She grabs a warm towel and cleans me off and tells me to lie down. She states clearly, “No fingers and no mouth. You haven’t paid me enough.” Really?!
She jacks my dick to get it hard, throws on a condom, and sits on me and rides me up and down while talking dirty. I lasted all of about 4 minutes. She got off me, went to the bathroom to clean off. I tried for a little caressing and touching, but she was indifferent. She wanted the last $500 and got out of there fast.
So this was my first time and I have learned. Sheri’s Ranch would be a better option if I didn’t have to worry about location services on my cell phone. I should have negotiated better. I can also see the value of a membership in TER and will consider that next time. Hope this helps others.
Arnold’s Comments on the Las Vegas Escort
To get verified on Eros, an escort has to submit a government-issued photo ID or “other photographic evidence” to Eros to prove the photos in her ad are really her. But Eros doesn’t guarantee that the woman in the ad is the woman who will show up for your appointment. And Eros also doesn’t guarantee that the photos are recent or a good likeness.
A good photographer can make a chubby girl look thin, a flat-chested girl look voluptuous, and a haggard woman look vibrant with youth.
A membership at TER would have allowed Juan to check for recent reviews. TER reviews are explicit. If a woman looks 35 instead of 22, or if her tits are saggy, or if she’s put on 20 pounds since her photos, you’ll hear about it. You’ll also hear about whether an escort gives a good experience or just goes through the bare minimum so she can escape.
A brothel experience ends with your orgasm (unless you have specifically negotiated in advance for multiple orgasms). A good escort or brothel courtesan will spend time with you before getting to that point, if you’re looking for that. She’ll share a drink with you. She’ll do a striptease for you. She’ll dance with you. She’ll give you a massage or let you massage her.
Las Vegas Escorts vs Legal Brothels
Juan did a lot of things right in looking for an escort in Vegas. He chose a verified escort. The woman he chose was the woman who showed up. And technically, his escort did nothing wrong. She quoted him her price, he paid for her services. She delivered. Yet, he felt ripped off.
But look at how much different his experience would have been in a legal brothel. First, he had to pay his Eros escort $500 up front just to talk with her about what he wanted. In a legal brothel, no money exchanges hands when you go to a girl’s room to discuss what you want. You pay nothing until you’ve come to an agreement.
Juan says she looked 10-15 years older than her picture on the Eros site (and her stated age of 22). In a brothel, the available girls are standing right in front of you. You don’t choose a girl based on a photo and a written description. What you see is what you get, and you can spend time with a girl at the brothel bar to see whether you have chemistry with her before you even start to negotiate.
Juan gives his Eros escort another $1000, assuming that was for the GFE he talked to her about on the phone. But no, she immediately asks for another $1000 on top of that, and when he says he doesn’t have another $1000, she gives him a handjob and a 4-minute quickie.
Okay, Juan’s negotiating skills leave something to be desired. He was too generous too fast and let her take charge of the whole experience. (See our Sheri’s review and Las Vegas brothels article for tips on negotiations.) But in a legal brothel, if you’re dissatisfied in any way with what a girl says she’ll do or won’t do and how much it costs, you have the option to go back to the lobby and choose another girl to negotiate with, and you’re not out a penny if you do that.
All the girls working at a legal brothel know that, so they try to be honest and they try very hard to please you. A legal brothel gives a customer equal power in negotiations.
Because you can negotiate openly and in advance for exactly what you want in a legal brothel, and because you have more power in the negotiations, I tend to advise friends to head to the brothels rather than call an escort. Plus in a brothel you know the girls are tested regularly for STDs, condoms are required by law, and you cannot be busted or ripped off by a scam artist.
