Here’s some advice from a fellow monger: Beware the advice of your fellow mongers. Including me.
Sometimes you get lucky and get a good tip. A couple of times I have been given info about specific chicas that turned out to be totally ‘on the money.’ One was an older spinner who wore her hair in a mullet, which made me think ‘lesbian.’ Definitely not, though, and an absolute doll overall. Another regarded a statuesque beauty who hung out at the Key Largo in San Jose. A fellow monger told me she was both good and would happily accompany mi for a modest amount.
Other, more general advice misses the mark often enough to be useless in some cases, or counter productive in the worst cases. To give one example, many mongers will tell you NEVER pay in advance. If I had followed that advice to the letter, I would have missed some very nice experiences. Not all chicas are worried about not getting paid, but plenty have been ‘stiffed’ by customers and their distrust is as reasonable as yours is. It’s your call. And theirs.
A rule of the thumb you can go by is that the more general the advice, the less likely it will be universally true. When I was in San Jose, I was told to avoid Colombians. It was somewhat true that they often had a higher asking price. But I have had great times with Colombians. Somebody else told me that Dominicans were always hot. Well, I will say that I have had some great sessions with Dominicanas, no question. But nationality is not a slam dunk any more than the color of her underwear.
Bottom line: The more general the advice, the less reliable. The more specific, the more dependable.
I wish that advice didn’t sound so general…
