The Etiquette Guide!

Sometimes it can be nerve-wracking visiting a lady, whether it’s your first time or your hundredth (do you get a little gold lapel badge at that point? I’m not sure.) You might be wondering how you can make the best possible impression, and improve the chances that you’ll hit it off and part at the door longingly afterwards.

So here are some general pointers!

Arrive clean and groomed (think about scratchy stubble, rough nails and so on … your fresh breath is also appreciated!). The lady you’re seeing will certainly be making an effort for you, so it’s lovely if you can do the same. I have a great power shower at my apartment (an alarming number of my reviews spend longer describing the shower than they do me …) and I will provide you with a fluffy towel and some mouthwash upon arrival. If you’ve showered immediately before coming over (some people like to hit the gym beforehand … each to their own, I suppose) then that’s fine, but most ladies will be endlessly grateful and considerably more cuddly if you’re squeaky clean. A few minutes in the shower is also very helpful for nerves, and will warm up cold hands and give your lady friend a moment to fetch drinks and maybe even make a quick call to a safety buddy to say you’ve arrived and you seem lovely.

Be sure to read someone’s information carefully, and ask if you’re unsure. Asking a lady for a service she doesn’t enjoy can put her in a very awkward position, and it can really spoil the mood if it’s phrased as more of a demand than a request! “Do you ever like to …?” is a good way to check in during the session, and opens up space for a discussion about things. If she doesn’t like something, please don’t try to convince her. It’s not polite.

Requests for information and other procedures should be seen in the right light: you should both feel happy and safe in all your interactions. Different ladies will have different requirements. Rest assured that very few people are interested in taking your details for nefarious reasons, it’s solely for safety. For an outcall, I ask for your full name, a booking reference for your hotel, and I’ll need to know what order you think jam or cream go on a scone (I’m only kidding about the last bit, I wouldn’t dream of such discriminatory practices.)

Money matters are taken care of straight away so everyone start having fun. Cash is the only form of payment accepted in most cases. Some ladies will ask for a deposit, and willingness to pay this tells them you’re as genuine as they come and probably won’t cancel at the last minute unless you fall down a rabbit hole.

If you’re going to cancel, try and give lots of notice. It’s hard not to feel frustrated if you have someone cancel when you had to politely decline another request for exactly the same time slot. If you cancel on the day of your appointment, it’s worthwhile offering a cancellation payment of some kind, especially if you hope to have a booking with that lady in future. Even a small amount will show you’ve taken the time to think about it.

So now that you’ve got some knowledge under your belt, you’ll hopefully feel more confident. When in doubt, ask the lady you’re seeing – she’s the expert, after all.
