When do I discuss the costs?

It’s important to discuss the costs when arranging an appointment. This will include negotiating what is actually included within the service. This conversation will happen directly with the sex worker and/or the receptionist at the commercial sex services premises.

For example, does the service begin when they enter the room or will the hour appointment begin after the client is undressed by their carer and the sex worker enters the room? Ask if dressing time is included in the hour appointment or not.

Each commercial sex services premises or sex worker may assess a situation differently. Some sex workers and establishments/escort agencies may charge travel fees while others may not. Some may charge a flat fee for travel while others may charge a reduced hourly rate.
