The Middle-Aged and the Misguided


(I haven't forgotten Tourist, we'll get back to him...)

Oh, Circus Guy...

In my inbox, after I responded to a mass forward from him (why would you include your whore of choice on your visible cc list?) and told him to check Snopes:

Hello [Whorename]. How have you been? I bet your doing good--you have a lot going on with your [real job] and things. Ive been well keeping busy at work and playing golf when I can. I miss you but cant afford your donation. Would love to see you again. If you are out my way and have a little time for me please let me know.Maybe you can be generous and let me go for 250kisses.
Love ya,and hope to see you soon.
[Circus Guy}


When I last saw him, my rate was $275, and after I had a really enjoyable time with him in which I overstayed more than an hour at no charge, he whined about the price and criticized how I deal with money.

I really don't have the heart to tell him I now cost two grand...

This guy is trying to quibble over $25? Some people can't pay for anything without trying to "get a deal". It makes them feel special, assuages their insecurities that they are just like everyone else. Tell him about your new rate and offer him $25 off.

I love Karin's idea and hope you take her up on it if for no other reason than that we'll get to hear about his reaction. R

Good one Mandy ... I agree with the other commenters ... tell him the new rate LOL

dexplorer said...

I agree. You should tell him the new rate. At least if you don't want him bothering you anymore.

Which I'm not 100% sure about. Are you?

G said...

Or better yet, just tell him he's a fuckin' dick and suggest he suck his own for free.

Karin - I like that, very funny :)

Dexplorer - I don't know, and that's a really good question. I genuinely enjoy having sex with him, and he's a nice person. I don't know how much is him being a cheapskate and how much is he just isn't all that well off. I think what bothers me most was the lecturing tone he took with me about money way back when (the post titled Poison). He's just a bit of a whiner. I'd rather offer a discount to someone I like than be asked for one.

G - welcome back :)

Alex - I adore the shoes, and I'm glad you do, too :)

I love those shoes too. let me hasten to add.

Here's a thought on the Circus Guy. First tell him the new rate. Then tell him because you do like him, if not his quibbling for your hold rate, that you might SOMETIMES, as an amazing discount others don't get, let him have you for 250 for an hour or whatever for 1.5 or two. BUT if you're going to do that he has to be willing to drive to near you. (He was the one John you told about your real arts work and you name and location, right?) You can't put in the time to do that at the old price anymore. Also he's gonna have to understand that you can only do this for him once in awhile -- but then he's low on cash anyway, right?

Just some thoughts. Only you can decide whether it's worth it during a "dry spell" at the high priced level.

Good points, Dex :) It's a heinous cliche, but he is good enough in bed to actually want to be there with him. So I might, if I'm passing through his town anyway and want to make some gas money...I don't know if him driving to me is actually practical, *but*, I really, really like the idea of him needing to contribute in some way.

dexplorer said...

Well then if for some reason it isn't that practical for him to travel to you and you could probably only see him if you were passing through his town (since making the trip just for him just doesn't work for you given your time constraints and your new rate and his incredible discount), then if he wants to see you, he's going to have to be prepared to do so on the rare occasions when you're passing through and have time to. I.e. he's going to have to rearrange his schedule to see you -- if he wants to badly enough.

How's that? He can contribute by being scheduling flexible FOR YOU.
