Decisions, decisions...


I've been in a weird mood lately (in case you haven't noticed). Things at work are stressful as usual. And to make matters worse, Audrey has gotten bitchier and bitchier.

It got so bad that we actually had it out a couple weeks ago. On this particular day, she managed to steal 2 customers from me just by walking up to the front desk and saying "I got this one" as I'm booking them in. The first time she did it, I chalked it up to her just being an asshole as usual and taking the first customer of the day. But the SECOND time she did it, my jaw dropped open in disbelief. She couldn't have offended me more if she had just slapped me in the face.

I was seeing red for half an hour while she was in session. When she came out I waited for her in the office and practically took her head off, I was so mad. We literally screamed at each other for about 10 minutes. Afterwards, she took off for lunch by herself - her way of saying "you can go next." What a sweet lady, huh?

Anyway, I was bitching about this (as usual) to a friend of mine who owns a Business, and "Sheila" said I should come work for her. This is nothing unusual. She offers me work all the time, and over the last couple of years I've actually worked a couple shifts with her - just as a favor.

But this time it was different. Sheila said she could really use an LMT on staff, and their business has been booming over the last 3 months. The problem though, is that her place is full service. She insists that's not a problem since about half their clients are handjob only. Also, her place is about 90 minutes from home, and my current commute is less than 30.

I told her I'd have to think about it, but I would definitely give it a real consideration this time. What I didn't say to her is that personally I think her Business is filthy, and the girls are all trashy. I know that sounds like the pot calling the kettle black - BUT, The Business is spotless and the girls don't look like they walked in off the streets (except for Cindy - LOL).

To be honest, Sheila's place looks and smells and feels like a brothel. Look - I love her to death, don't get me wrong. I would even help her out in a pinch if she needed some extra help covering shifts. But I don't know how I'd feel driving to that dump every day.

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I'm only good in a car for an hour TOPS. My definition of "outer space" is anything more than 60 minutes from my house.

We talked numbers for a few minutes, and it may or may not be better than what I'm doing here. I don't know. Not being FS in a FS place has it's good and bad points - the worst one being the pressure to go FS for better money. However, the good thing is that you get an instant clientele - guys who don't want FS. So it's a toss up (no pun intended).

So that's the dilemma I'm facing now. Of course it doesn't help any that business has been building up towards the Mother Of All Massage Weekends - Thanksgiving. That week alone is worth sticking around this hell hole.

I think next week I'll go over all the things you guys need to know to get around a massage parlor. I need all of you out there to help our economy and go support your local masseuses over Thanksgiving weekend.

Who knows - the job you end up saving may be mine!

Never take another job that does not guarantee at least a 15% pay increase.... and in your case, if you are expected to do Full Service I would not go unless I had a guarantee 25% increase in pay.

I know what you are thinking...Joker, what are you smokin? I'll tell ya, if you don't get these increases...you will regret it. You will feel jipped...

I would stay with Audrey, although she's a bitch.
An hour extra drive (two hour round trip) is not worth it if you're not going to see much more money. And plus there is going to be uncertainties whether you can get regulars who doesn't want FS in the new place.
Are you sure you can keep up with your client bitching "but the other girls offer FS..."?

But yea, stay with Audrey...unless you could find a better non-FS that's within the same distance.

How much could you make if you went full service?

Just curious.

Hey there,
Newer reader to the blog, and I love it! Informative, and entertaining. I am in Portland Oregon, and am having a hard time finding an establishment like yours.
I have a feeling they are here, but I don't know where to start. Any advice you might have would be highly appreciated. Thanks!
C

Even if it was a solid pay increase I wouldn't have done it because of the extra hour. Think about how much you waste of your life -- added together -- just by driving to work.

can you move so you live halfway between the two, so it's say 45 minute drive to either?

It would be interesting of course to hear about another business, but it doesn't sound like you actually want to change, and it certainly doesn't sound like it's worth it. A longer commute for -maybe- more pay? I wouldn't.

are you afraid of giving in and blowing a guy?

Going to a Full Service place sounds like a catastrophically bad idea.

Dear CJ,

so sorry to hear that the job is being a bitch. i hope you don't mind if i ask you a couple of questions. there's this legit place that i go to, and the masseuse seems to like me since she would give me a hj for free. my question is, how do i ask her to give me my "massage" privately at my place. i bet lotsa guys have asked you for the same.

Would you consider doing more if you change?

CJ, Been reading your blog for a while, never left a comment. Now is the time to go out on your own. Start a six month plan to find a place somewhere far enough away from were your are now and set up your own shop that you can run the way you want. Rent prices are down and the economy is improving. You would be getting the table fee to pay the rent. You could add the tanning, but you would need to sell a lot of tanning time to break even. Stick to massage with options. Get a couple of LMT so a guy can get a good massage and a HJ.

I'm serious.. I mean.. Really.

Newsflash – Sheila’s place is a dirty whore house and if you went to work there you would be offering full service within a couple of weeks because of the lure of $. Pls. don’t bullshit us that Sheila’s brothel has an opening for a professional LMT! She wants you because you would appeal to her horny customers as you’re kind of cute and have big fake tits. But, your appeal is declining as you have a lot of miles on the odometer. Guys like girls who are young, innocent-looking, fit and you are unfortunately about to "Jump the Shark”.

CJ, you are in no position to look down on Sheila’s place as the menu of services you offer only differs slightly from her place. There is a thin grey line separating Audrey's from Sheila's place and you would cross it very quickly for the love of money. To sum up, your job choices are to become a full fledged escort and take the better paying job with Sheila or stay with Audrey and remain an escort-lite. Choose wisely as the clock is ticking on your sex worker career and you are definitely the pot calling the kettle black.
