If you know your pussy worth a Benz truck
Don’t let homie fuck unless his band’s up.

Picking Clients

Sex workers may take pleasure and profit from sex, but profit takes priority.

The sexual pleasure may be real or faked. If faked, it’s important that your lover believes your pleasure to be real, and that you don’t break the illusion by talking about money.

In order to maintain your value, you should never perform sex without taking a fee.

Dress well, but not flashily. You want to attract people’s attention without looking like you’re selling anything.

Good prospective clients: you want people who are either independently wealthy – whether their wealth is self-made or inherited – or who have transparent sources of high income, such as bankers, lawyers, doctors, high profile actors, business people, or politicians.

You’re on the lookout for people who can and will spend freely on sex: those who are independent, generous, vain, boastful, rebellious, competitive, or out to prove themselves.

It’s OK to take on clients who aren’t rich, as long as they have good qualities and you think their services might prove useful someday.

You obviously want clients who are physically robust, in good health, and don’t have a history of substance abuse.

The best clients are well-presented, reliable, respectful, enthusiastic, knowledgeable about the world, good conversationalists, and are never uncouth, nervous or quick-tempered.

You should share these qualities yourself and appreciate them in others.

In addition, you need to be reasonably good looking, to genuinely enjoy sex and romantic intrigue, and not merely for the money, to be skilled in sexual practice, and to be sure-minded, direct, and adaptable.

When you are propositioned by a potential client, you should never accept immediately. You want to appear hard to get!

You should find out as much as you can about a potential client before agreeing to meet them.

Are they sufficiently well-financed? Are they bold enough to go through with it? Will they be respectful?

The best way of finding out what someone’s like is to take references from other sex workers who have previously had liaisons with them.

When you meet a client for the first time, meet in public – at a bar, a restaurant, or a show.

Indulge in conversation for a while and then, if the chemistry is good, invite them to your place, or go back to theirs.

Always let a friend or workmate know where you’re going.

When a client arrives
Swap gifts and donations:
Flowers, chocolate
Jewelry, perfume.

Discuss the arts
Avoid politics.
Take the initiative
Show you’re up for it.

By signs, gestures and hints
Disclose your bold intent
To move matters toward
The bedroom and beyond.

Long Term Clients

Once you’ve started a relationship with a client, you should behave as if it’s a real romantic relationship.

Act like the sparks are truly flying – you want your client to reciprocate the feelings.

You’ll need pretexts for being unavailable on certain nights, so you can have sex with other people.

This could be a disapproving relative, a friend in need, or an unthreatening illness with no visible symptoms that comes and goes as you please.

Appreciate the fine quality of the gifts your client gives you.

Ask your client to teach you new sexual techniques. Pretend you don’t know them and that you need to practice them together.

When you’re alone together, profess your desire to be with them always, express your deepest desires, but conceal anything you don’t want them to know.

Always welcome your client’s advances. Do not resist their touch. Wherever their hands wander, you permit it. When they hold you while asleep, you allow it.

Hate what they hate. Like what they like. Mirror their mood.

Be attentive to everything your client says. Unless it’s about their other partners, in which case you should feign jealousy, though not for too long.

In the course of conversation, find ways to flatter and admire your client so that they believe you have feelings for them.

Avoid talking about subjects your client is not knowledgeable about.

If your client has troubles, share them. If they are worried or sick, console and comfort them.

Never praise anyone else in front of your client. Nor be critical of anyone else’s faults, in case your client has them, too.

Always keep the gifts your client gives you.

Say that you want to go away with them. Say that the relationship has given your life new meaning.

If your client has good fortune, celebrate it.

If you have trouble in your life or difficult decisions to make, seek your client’s counsel.

Treat your client’s property and money as if they were your own.

Praise their sweet disposition, good character, their skills, knowledge, friends, culture and country of origin.

If your client can sing, play an instrument, write poetry, draw or paint, nurture their talent and encourage them to perform.

Join your client wherever they happen to travel, without regard for cold, heat, rain or snow.

If you don’t want to travel, invent external circumstances beyond your control that are preventing you from meeting with them.

Whenever your client goes on a long journey, urge them to return as soon as possible. When they come back, throw a party for the two of you.

Never discuss money matters.

The signs that your client is truly attached to you are that they confide their secrets, trust you with their inner feelings, do what you ask them to do, and do not worry about the money side.

Anything we’ve not covered, you can learn from observing people’s behavior.

People are hard to read
Courtesans inscrutable.
Fake the feelings
Feign love till it’s real.

Puff up their ego
Empty wallet of bills
Love them then dump them
Rinse and repeat.

Making Money

Your livelihood consists of exchanging sexual services for money.

Earlier scholars say: ‘If you’re earning enough, keep things simple and don’t rock the boat.’

Vatsyayana says: ‘Sharp practice will double your income!’

Say that you need money for new clothes to go out in, or for fine food and drink for the two of you.

Pretend that you’ve been the victim of fire, theft, accident, or blackmail, or that you need to pay off a greedy landlord or cover a family member’s debts or medical expenses.

Dissemble that you need funds for a charitable project with which you’re involved.

With an air of embarrassment, shame your client by mentioning the spectacular fees and lavish perks that friends of yours in the same line of work are enjoying.

Arouse fear of losing you by confiding that you’re fending off outrageous offers from a former client you don’t want to go back to.

Excite your client’s competitive spirit or play on their vanity by reminiscing about former lovers, the fabulous gifts they gave you, the exotic locations they flew you to.

If you know your client is leaving you and never coming back, just beg and plead like a small child!

You’ll know that a client is cooling on you from the way they change their tone and dealings with you.

Giving you less money or more money than usual are both bad signs.

They’ll say that they’ll do something, and then do something different. They’ll stop doing something that they’ve always done. They’ll forget promises, or keep promises in an awkward or unhelpful way.

They’ll start making excuses not to meet, to spend less time with you, or to sleep elsewhere, saying that it’s because of work or because of something that they need to do for a friend.

When this happens, grab what you can and run. The worst case is they’ll sue you. If, that is, they’re prepared to face the daylight of the courtroom.

However, if your client previously treated you well and did you favors, don’t throw them over! Hold them at arm’s length but keep them warm by telling them whatever lies you need to.

If your client has completely run out of funds, you need to detach yourself from them and find a new one.

You can do this without having to dump them explicitly.

Start doing things your client doesn’t like, resume habits they disapprove of, resist their touch, talk about things they have no knowledge of, be indifferent to or contemptuous of the things they do know about, and criticize their bad habits.

If your client hugs you, be stiff as a board. Offer sex when they don’t want it and refuse it when they do. Make excuses. If you do have sex, show no pleasure.

Deliberately misinterpret what your client says. Laugh for no reason when they are serious, be unmoved when they make a joke.

Refuse to meet up with your client and decline all their requests. By the end, your client will be exasperated and will no longer want to see you. That is Dattaka’s view.

On determining whether
To keep or drop clients
Consider past pleasure
And present consideration.

If you follow this method
You’ll never be cheated
Or damage the earnings
From plying your trade.

Reunion with a Former Client

When you find yourself needing a new client, consider re-establishing relations with a previous lover if they currently have money and are still attracted to you.

Besides money and sexual attraction, there are several other points you should consider.

If the former client dumped you and has subsequently dumped others, avoid them because they are too unreliable.

If, on the other hand, the client is the one being repeatedly dumped, then check their financial resources carefully. If they are being abandoned for lack of funds, they are not a good prospect. However, if they’re solvent, they may well pay generously in order to prove themselves and overcome the insult of repeated rejection.

If the client dumped you, and has recently been dumped by someone else, it’s OK to resume the relationship, but they should pay you more than they did previously.

If the client dumped you, is currently with someone else, and is trying to win you back, you need to figure out what their motives are. If their feelings for you are true, they will probably pay handsomely. But if they’re merely being restless, it’s a more difficult call.

If you dumped the client and they have abandoned subsequent lovers or they are currently with someone else and are trying to win you back, you need to be careful about their motivation. Are they resentful, jealous or vengeful? You don’t want them picking things up with you only so that they can dump you in revenge, or, worse, steal money from you to recoup their previous spend.

Earlier scholars say: ‘An old client is better than a new one because you know their character and how to please them.’

Vatsyayana says: ‘It’s easier to establish trust with a new client than re-establish it with an old one.’

Either way, use your judgement. People are unpredictable.

Take old clients back
To win them off a rival
Break up a relationship
Or cause trouble in your own.

If lovers are in thrall
Afraid of infidelity
They’ll overlook your flaws
And overpay your fees.

Commend former clients
Only if they’re free.
Scorn those with strings
Yet listen to them anyway,

Slow rolling your response
As they try to win you back.
Don’t be in a rush to ditch
Your current lover or his check.

Start by taking money
From your old amour
But maintain your current client:
Keep them warm and keen.

Be smart, take it slowly.
Return to an old flame
Only once you’ve reckoned
Their measure and your gain.

Higher Volume Sex Work

If you don’t have a single long-term client, you’ll need to take business from a variety of clients.

Set the price for a night based on your skills and your scarcity and by reference to other sex workers operating in the same location as you.

If a client pays you for several nights, stay with them and behave as though they were a long term client.

Scholars say: ‘If two clients are willing to pay your fee, you should pick the one likeliest to tip you the most.’

Vatsyayana says: ‘Payment in a stable currency is best, and better than expensive gifts, because it has the strongest exchange value.’

If two clients are equally rich, take advice from your friends and coworkers, then pick the one you like the best.

Previous authors say: ‘Always pick the client that pays you the best, not the one who is most infatuated with you.’

Vatsyayana says: ‘Even a mean client will be generous if they fall for you, but you can’t infatuate a high-spending client by sheer force of will.’

Earlier scholars say: ‘A client who can be useful is often preferable to one who pays in cash.’

Vatsyayana says: ‘A client who renders a useful service will believe their obligation is discharged once the service is performed, whereas a free-spending client has no regard for what they have paid you in the past. Always pick the client most likely to take care of your future needs.’

Previous writers say: ‘A high-spending client is clearly better than a reliable but lower-spending one.’

Vatsyayana says: ‘Big spenders come and go. A faithful client is grateful to you, and their feelings towards you will not suddenly cool. Choose the one who will look after you in the future.’

Scholars say: ‘If you have a choice between a gain and preventing a loss, always choose financial gain.’

Vatsyayana says: ‘With cash, your upside is typically limited to your fee, whereas when you are protecting against a loss of future earnings, the downside may be much higher. In this case, you need to weigh the options carefully.’’

If you make a lot of money, invest in high quality attire first, then in improving the furnishings and accoutrements of the place where you meet clients, and finally in projects that that will make you financially secure.

There are certain scenarios in which it’s appropriate to charge a much reduced fee for your services. For instance if you’re trying to widen your network of clients, prevent a client defecting, or win over a client from a competitor.

You may even charge nothing at all if you know that the individual is about to enjoy improved circumstances and that they will become a regular client.

You should always make sure that you’re paid in advance if you believe a client is unreliable or that their luck might deteriorate.

Shirk low income workers
Shun criminals and knaves
Their money is misfortunate
The coin not worth the gain.

Catch the stars. Seek out
The successful. Deploy
Every trick in every book.
Do what you have to.

Spend freely yourself
On people of purpose
With energy and poise
Who spend without count.

Risks & Rewards

Sometimes in pursuing profit, you end up running a loss or suffering bad consequences.

This is almost always the result of poor decision-making, itself usually the result of over-confidence, vanity, pride, anger, greed, recklessness or trusting to dumb luck.

Perhaps your client doesn’t pay you what you were expecting. Or your expenses with a client outstrip your earnings from them. Or they leave you completely in the lurch. Worse, perhaps they are violent and injure you so badly that you are unable to work for a period of time.

You’ve got to be sufficiently savvy and strong-minded that you can leave money on the table whenever you judge the downside risks to be too great.

Pleasure, power, and purpose are the three things you are trying to gain in life. Pain, poverty, and frustration the three things you are trying to avoid.

Actions and events have consequences.

Gains can lead to further gains or to future losses, of the same type or a different type.

Taking money from a new client risks losing the entire income stream from a faithful long-term client. Of course, it could still be the highest gain option overall, if it suits some higher purpose of yours or if the new client brings you a lot of pleasure.

Losses can lead to further losses or to future gains, again of any type.

Spending your own money to win a new client is net positive if you gain a reliable and high-spending new customer. Yet this can still backfire, if your new client frustrates your bigger projects or causes you a lot of pain.

From the perspective of wealth and power, it may make sense to dump a financially exhausted client for a fresh one, but you need to consider whether this goes against your principles or might damage your reputation.

Only you can decide how to balance the demands of pleasure, money, and your other life goals, and you need to think through the possible chains of consequence very carefully.

Your rule should be to maximize the sum of certain gain and probable gain after accounting for the size and probability of any downside.

These are the different types of sex worker: masseurs who offer sexual services; streetwalkers who solicit their clients in public places; high volume workers in sex booths and brothels; incall escorts working out of hotels or serviced apartments; outcall escorts visiting clients at their own locations; low volume luxury companions who nurture a number of regular clients; and elite professionals who maintain an exclusive relationship with one long term client at a time.
