New Segment: Prices in… Dubai – Intro, Locations (Part 1)
Alright gentlemen, this is the first installment of the “Prices in…” series, where your correspondent Old Iron discusses the prices of the hookers in the local regions I have visited. 99.9% of the prices are what I paid while there, and will also include multiple variables in the pricing equation such as :
1. Level of intoxication of either you or the hooker
2. Time of the evening (this actually does vary the pricing CONSIDERABLY)
3. Specific nationality quirks, if applicable
4. Location, location, location
So, without further adieu, here is
Dubai is a beautiful little desert state that is a member of the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.). which is a collection of Arab states that all have one thing in common; they fucking rock out with their collective cocks out. On the topside this place looks like a modern mish-mash of New York, L.A., and London, with skyscrapers of every design imaginable lining the skyline, but this all changes when the sun goes down and the nightlife starts kicking up. So my suggestion to you is, if you arrive sometime during the day but are rip-roaring ready to go prior to 9 o’clock in the evening, it may be time to pre-game in the hotel bar. As most hotels in Dubai do have bars / pubs in them, this could prove to be a good time as you will meet some fairly interesting people there who are probably in a holding pattern like you. Last time I did this I ended up hanging out with a couple of Irish guys who showed me the finer points of drinking Guinness. As in TUBS of Guinness. I think I won a promotional shirt from that time…
-I digress. So what have we established?
1. Do not head out into the scene until around 9 o’clock. In addition, 10 is a decent time to also head out, but anything after 11 and you are risking not being able to get in to your destination of choice.
Now let’s assume for expedience’s sake that we have reached the time that we leave the Hotel (in a cab. You are an idiot if you take private transportation) and try our luck in the great wilds of the Dubai flesh market, so we are going to need a place to start. Trust me you will end up somewhere else, but you might as well break yourself in on the scene, right?
This flows into my next topic: location. There are quite a few places that I have been in that town, but trust you me there is many more than I am going to list here. These are the ones that I can guarantee are joints that you can land something, as I have personal experience in all of these locations, and I will also list all of the nationalities that I found there as well.
Two additional notes on this before we start: First, you need to learn to haggle. This is like any other business transaction in that the starting price is not what you actually have to pay. You work it right and you can knock 25% to 50% off the initial asking price for only a few invested minutes of your time. It takes practice but I have faith that you will learn how to see through the bullshit and get what you want for the price you are willing to pay. Second: You will NOT be able to take her back to your room. Just bank on that. She will give you a destination and you will have sex with her there. This is almost ALWAYS not debatable, so deal with it. Now ON WITH THE SHOW!
The York:This place is a club located on the upper floor of the York Hotel, thus the name of the joint. You have to climb up a fuckload of steps (that is until, after seeing you out of breath when you arrive, one of the waitresses points to the elevator), and is a really dark club. I mean fucking Vin Diesel / PITCH BLACK inside. It is also pretty big and open, which allows for all of the hookers to see you immediately (their cat-like eyes can see in the dark and are faintly luminescent, I SWEAR) and swarm you like a group of emo kids to the whip cream isle of the local supermarket. This place is open quite earlier than most of the other hotspots, and has some of the cheapest prices of all of the working ladies in town, but the quality of the “goods” directly reflects that.
Nationalities: I found Ethiopians, Phillipinos, and a few Chinese here. Prices are as follows (and all prices are in good ole USD):
9 pm – 100$ to 125$. This is pretty much across the board, and after some haggling. They all start at 200$, but you can work them down.
10 to 11:30 pm- 150$ to 175$. Starting to get to peak hours, so now the girls are out for the decent score. Haggling could work somewhat, but they would rather move on to an idiot that is just thinking with his dick then waste time with you.
11:30 – 1:00 – 75$ to 125$. If you hang out a little while (or make the York your last stop because your lame ass couldn’t get any at another place) then you can get some rock-bottom prices right about this time. This is when either the girls are trying to squeeze one last trick in for the night, or haven’t landed one at all. The “hasn’t landed one at all” category is where you can get those 75$ price tags, and it usually is from the Asian ones.
Just an addition to the price list. The high price that I list is for mild bargaining. If you do not bargain you can immediately ramp the price up to 200$, no debate. Also if you are drunk “200″ is a good round number that your pickled mind can wrap itself around. If you are even too fucked up to remember numbers, you might just loose half of the contents of your wallet. In this instance I would suggest keeping about 20$ in fives in your shoe so that you at least have taxi fare.
-For our next installment of “Prices in Dubai” I will be discussing two other clubs: the Cyclone, and my personal favorite, Amnesia.
‘Till then, Happy Hooker Hunting!
