Just curious for those readers from Shanghai, what is the going rate for an hour with an escort nowadays?

I received a call on the room phone in the Hotel I am staying in (escorts basically call every room hoping to get a guy on the line) Anyways it is an escort who was surprised I answered in English, so she struggled to come up with whatever English she knew and asked "Uhh Hello, do you want special service?" So I asked how much and she replied 400rmb for 1 hour.

So just wanted to know is this a pretty average price? Also does anyone know of any good escort services here in Shanghai?

    1. No I dont know, sorry
    2. No shame there, its always important to know where the local whores are and the going fare, just in case.
    3. Google it

    This is China; you can always bargain.

    Also there really isn't a need to pay for sex here, just go to out to the clubs (save money on booze by getting drunk before you get to the club) and find a slutty ho to bang. For free.

    dude, shanghai is pretty international. any tourist can get around with just English.

    ^^^^People are under the impression that Shanghai is very international, but I've been here for about 4 months now and can say with certainty that English is not as widely spoken as most people would assume, even if you go to an American fast food chain you still have to order in Mandarin as the cashiers won't have a clue of what you are saying in English, your only other option is to point. I happened to have studied at a school in Shanghai during the summer that is well known for their linguistics program, the people I met from this program can indeed speak English, but they even admitted they hardly ever use it and would only speak English to me because my Mandarin is not great.

    In terms of speaking English with an escort, that is a whole different story. They'll understand if you ask them how much but that is about it. For future reference though, the Chinese term for blowjob is "kou yin"

    I've been there longer than 4 months, and I'll say WITH CERTAINTY (no offense) that it is VERY international. Go to Tokyo city and try ordering something in English. Prepare to be laughed at.

    OP, here's the lowdown from someone who has done this: 1000 RMB will get you a high class hooker, 400 RMB is her trying to rip you a little, and 100-250 /hr is the actual going rate, especially if they don't speak English.

    Just remember if it ain't wrapped twice, that don't suffice!

    Equities are for chumps.

    I spent 3 months in Shanghai in 2008 and never had any problems with people not speaking English. In fact I had numerous young people come up to me and strike up a conversation just to practice their English language skills. Maybe you're just pissing people off so they pretend they don't understand you?

    this thread is going to be amazing

    i have the popcorn going

    Please - do what you can to find an employee owned co-op if you are looking for an escort service. Ensure that you are not providing payment to an entity violating the UN declaration on human rights and anyone they employ is above the age of consent. Human trafficking in the sex trade is no joke. Do your part to stop it.

  • zfzxzzza's picture

    LOL

    400 is not expensive at all considering the inflation going on in China, especially in a big city like SH/BJ
    anyways it still depends on the quality of services u get. also u can always bargain.

    There's plent of organization involved in this, including the US DOJ/FBI. Here's infro from one of the oldest NGOs:

    1. wearing two condoms increases the likelihood of breakage and condom failure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Condom#Causes_of_failure

    2. Hooker calling your hotel room will probably chloroform your ass and rob you blind. You'll be lucky to keep your kidneys.

    3. I wouldn't laugh at Sophie, if you are a US/UN citizen, you MAY get prosecuted for having sex with minors on foreign soil. May, as in if they find out, not as in they may decide not to prosecute after finding out.
    Moreover, if you ever decide to run for office, the sex scandal will come to light, just as they always do. Keep in mind, Weiner got in trouble for showing his wiener.

    4. ANT, is it so fucking inconceivable to you that it IS possible to bust a nut without subjecting people to being traded as cattle and treated even worse than?

    Haha this thread is great. To the OP: It doesn't take much to get laid in a city like Shanghai. If you'll still be in the city in next summer, I'll be your wingman kk

  • SophieinBK's picture

    Seriously, you've never heard of trafficking problems in the sex trade? Its in the mainstream press like New Yorker, Harpers, the Atlantic the same way blood diamonds were during the Sierra Leone civil war. Man I even think there is a Leonardo DiCaprio movie about sex slaves. You can't tell me so many people have never heard of this. Jesus.
