Are clients getting stranger?

This is a follow up to the thread on things getting slower. There were plenty of responses on that thread about how an escort could improve his business by his actions, etc. which is no doubt true, but misses the point that individual actions aren't that important where trends are involved. As wealth inequality goes up, real income goes down and free social media sites compete for the same pool of potential clients unless the number of escorts decreases there should be some fall out in the number of clients available per escort. It would also seem that the potential clients that are being siphoned off would not be random, but would instead be those who did not have extreme tastes (either in expectations from an escort, the "kinkiness" of what they want or in their socialization) since these are the people one would think would be able to turn to Scruff, be able to engage in regular dating now that being gay is more accepted, and so forth. If so that should mean that the clients that are left would overall be "flakier". Again, I'm not trying to be offensive but I actually think this is pretty interesting, and I'm talking about overall trends, not one individual. So escorts what are you seeing out there? Are new potential clients different from what you were seeing a few years ago in the sense of being "flakier"?

I don't think clients are getting stanger, but I do believe escorting in many areas are becoming less lucrative. There's so many factors surrounding that, that I'd rather move to another country and start over. You have everything you've mentioned, plus all the half-ass legal shit surrounding it. Escorting in America is getting stranger...That's the real truth of the matter.

Unlike Mr. Bryant who I like and is a credit to the biz, I do NOT want to leave the USA! God forbid. I love this malfunctioning democracy too much to leave. lol. Back to the topic: I feel as if clients who still hire are basicly two types: 1. The married closeted guy with kids who can't risk any other way and needs EXTREME discretion. This is my bread and butter and this type has supported me since I started and will NEVER go away. 2. The client who needs a specialty service not easily accessible on grindr, scruff, manhunt or at the bars (are ther any bars left??????) This is a rising part of the biz and the part of the biz that actually favors us , "old goat," escorts in our 30's and 40's who have experience. http://www.rentboy.com/magicmikey

Well thankyou for the commendation.

 

My reasoning for wanting to leave, as it relates to the industry itself, (of course my own personal reasons) is that there's too much of the same thing here! It's like you go 1 place and think you have a footing and can offer something unique, and then along comes 50 other guys trying to do the same thing, touring the same places you're going, etc.

 

I have watched in my local area, many guys who were around at the same time I was around a few years ago, have vanished. Non of them are still doing it anymore. I don't really know their total reasoning, but I suspect they just couldn't get a footing and were pushed away when other guys began starting up in the area.

 

Clients in US can have any type of escort they want at anytime and have a constant stream of new ones all year long. If you're (using "you" as a general term) a niche or just starting up, you're not going to be an instant hit in many of these cities, because chances are, there were 500 escorts just like you before you and there will be 500 more after you.

Off-topic but related to the two previous posts:

 

Joey, many people would love to live in the USA, but you're one of the few who wants to leave this great country.

 

The latin saying goes "Nemo propheta in patria" ... "No man is a prophet in his own land". It means figuratively that it is easier to gain recognition and acclaimed success outside of your own country. And there's some truth in that.

 

I wouldn't say that some international experience is bad for you. Traveling abroad is enriching and gives you new perspectives in life. Also it increases your knowledge and widens your horizons. It brings you experiences and situations you'll never encounter at home. Giving it some extra thought and careful planning would be prudent to avoid further disappointment. Best of luck!

OK, I'm confused. On the one hand you're agreeing with me and citing an encouranging proverb, but on the other you're calling me ungrateful?

 

This country's topography is great, but the system/politics and people that makes up much of it, not so much...and because of that, it's not THAT great. I mean, look what happened earlier this month. Look at how Americans are all going berserk. Look how the government is still trying to control our bodies. And I'm pretty sure we're being brainwashed to believe what justice is by the plethora of 'law and order' and 'CSI' and 'Person of Interest' shows that are so pervasive on free TV. Look at how as an American, you can't even visit a piece of land created for Americans by God without being prosecuted because of something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. Look at how racism/predjudice is STILL an issue of debate 100 years later.

 

I'm sure there's some worst countries...but you can't deny we're going downhill and barely progressing. I'd rather go elsewhere, experience a different lifestyle for a change, and then make an assessment as to whether the world revolves around the US.
