Believe it or not, many of the girls on Backpage are controlled by a central marketer. You like how they use the term marketer now. I call Bull on that, it's a straight up pimp. These 'marketers' promote these girls everywhere on backpage, they even screen the calls for the girls. In turn, for each appointment the pimp makes for the girls, he gets a cut of the rate.
Think about that for a moment... the concept of a street pimp is now moved to the online world. Making matters worse, these girls have some heavy mileage (YMMV). AS a result, these backage ads have a HIGH amount of an STD rate. Since most of the guys from backpage that get STDs don't want to communicate about it, they simply keep it to themselves. Then, they move on to the next STD infested backpage escort. The cycle continues to get worse as many of these men are requesting BBBJ.
Stay away from the low end back page escort. You have been warned!
When you start seeing rates for $50 for an hour, you know you're dealing with a cracked out backpage escort. The only way these girls know how to make money is by driving the escort price down to get more clients. They will literally do every high risk act in the book. Translation = No condom + STD for You.
If you're going to go the escort route, I highly recommend you go the message board route. There are sites like ECCIE & Best GFE that have a community of members that provide real feedback of their escort service. While the STD risk is still there, you at least know what you're getting yourself in to (no pun intended).
