My colleagues and I who started this site were out at dinner at the Chowder Pot in Hartford last night(Best prime rib by the way). We've been really wrestling with the whole idea of agency verse Indy. What is a better bet? Well after much debating and hearing each other talk we all realized we were more in favor for an agency of exclusiveness and quality then an independent. This seemed to be a recent switch in opinion as we concluded if you asked us this question more than 3 years ago, we would have favored Indy's. The four of us are in our mid 50's and each roughly have a solid 15 years of hobbying. We all agreed that it seems that some agencies have gotten better at customer service and the indys have gotten better at misleading us. I must quickly point out that there are some down right awful agencies, we could right a book alone on just our experiences on that!! I personally, these days, only contact an agency if it was referred to me by someone I know. Over the years we have gotten so tired of the eroticreview.com and it's false glamorizations of some of the agencies and independents it portrays. I don't know why the info tends to be so incorrect but I have stopped checking there altogether. When a place has been referred to me I feel quite a bit more at ease. I await building a relationship with the owner or his or her operator. I like to know when new talent has arrived an so forth. There are one or two out-fits in CT that truly do have a fantastic approach, and will even check back in with you to make sure everything went well.
There are alot of positives to booking through an agency, especially if the agency has a good reputation....
Independent escorts can be very flaky and harder to get a hold of, thus harder to make an appointment. If you book through a solid escort agency that has a great reputation you can be a lot more confident that whomever you’re going to see will fit the standards of the escort agency. If you like to see girls that are newish to the business and aren't jaded, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on a few agencies by calling them every now and then and asking if they have any new escorts. Escorts who are new to the business and really hot have no trouble getting a job with a popular escort agency, and that’s generally how they’ll make the most amount of money.
There are two kinds of independent escorts: those who possess entrepreneurial spirit and prefer to work independently and those who simply “didn't make the cut” during their interviews with the agencies, either because of their looks or personality. You won't know which category your prospective date falls into until she shows up at your door. Ultimately I believe that Indy's can't hold down a regular job even on the side, it's simply because they can't be reliable. I hear this all the time from the members. I hear and have noticed for myself the drug use and worn out aspect of many Indy's. Ultimately I personally believe the best set up is an escort who entertains on occasion, whom is enrolled in college or partaking in a professional career. Ladies of this caliber leave the most lasting impression.
Keep in mind that once you find an agency, you have a reliable source of entertainment for months and years to come; whereas with an independent you are investing time, money, and effort into building a relationship with an individual entertainer. Finally, all agencies work hard to cultivate important relationships and offer VIP treatment and discount program to their regular clients, so as a result you will end up having alot more fun and saving alot of money in the long run. I think that next month we are going to be running a category on top 5 best Indys of the month.
I think it’s normal to find a preference between escort agencies and independent escorts, one way or another. I hope that me sharing my thoughts above has either shared light or entertainment.
