Being an "indie" can get rather lonely at times and I am looking for an upscale brothel charging minimums of $3-400, similar to the more upscale ones in Vegas, I have heard rumors of some very luxurious establishments in NYC but can't seem to find any...
Based on the recent experience of an aquaintance working girl, you'd be well advised to avoid Mikes. I think Overtures,which is owned and run by woemn now charges $300 and the physical plant is the best I've been to in NYC. I think you need an intro from a client to get employment there.
The majority of $500 to $600 "striclty incalls" have faded away in recent years. Althogh I do think there's room for a resurgence of the once popular model of "girl in a studio apartment doing incall" that Charlie and Martha used to do well with.
The barrier to entry to this biz is so small as to be non-existent. If a reasonable attractive and well-dressed chick worked high-end hotel bars, diligently, I'm sure the $400+ an hour repeat customer is waiting.
As a married man, I find it much easier to whore on a spur-of-the-moment basis, when I find I have some time, than to plan in advance.
Say I plan something a week in advance, and the night before my wife mentions that she's made some plans for us the next night with friends I really like. What do I do? Say, "Can't make it, dear: I have a prostitution session set up"? And really, I'd probably rather see the friends anyway.
(Which is not to say I ever do much spur-of-the-moment whoring anymore. But that's mainly because it's so expensive relative to what I can get if I plan ahead. I.e., because the quality last-minute market has dried up. So I sacrifice convenience.)
From the consumer side, at least, that anticipation thing (at least with respect to first-time sessions, with someone woman you don't already know) can be a two-edged sword. It can put an AWFUL lot of pressure on the session to be extraordinarily good or else be disappointing, which wouldn't be there if you didn't have time to let all that anticipation build.
