Value and price are two different concepts. It is hard to find a balance between them, but I guess I got it!
“Your massage is priceless!”
Even though it needs to have some value. The price is also a clue about the quality you can expect.
The difference between value and price
Everybody knows what a price is. You see a tag sticked to a t-shirt. So you go “hm, 30 €”. “It’s cheap”, you may think. Or “expensive” or “just the right amount” of money. You know if you can pay for it. And you know also if it quality suites your expectations.
Price is an objetive number. It is the same for everybody. So all the guys looking at that t-shirt will see the same number. To some of them, it sounds cheap. Some other will say it is expensive though!
So this is where the value comes in.
Though each and every man sees a different value for the same thing and the same price. It seems to depend not only on your income. It also depends on how useful that object or service is to you.
You might rather think you don’t need it. It might not be a priority to you at this time.
All these circumstances can change the value of a given thing.
Value and rare things
Rare things are more valuable. The extreme example are diamonds or masterpiece paintings. Difficult to find, expensive to work on. Only a few people in the world do own a diamond.
Massage and value
You can find therapeutic massages for 40 €. Because there are thousands of therapy masseurs offering this service. Just one masseur can do dozens of them a day.
Erotic massage is less common. And it involves intimacy, sex, the will to do it and some specific talents. All the talents a regular masseur is lacking. Therapeutic massage professionals are not willing to touch your sexual parts. Not to mention they don’t want to be touched either!
When speaking about erotic massage all this means we are dealing with a special and rather uncommon service.
Erotic masseurs are facing many difficulties to advertise. We are banned from many advertising systems. We have to find different ways to promote our service, and they are oftentimes extremely expensive.
So we are not just a rare service but also facing extremely high costs.
Massage value and price
I am offering erotic massage for gay men since 2003. During all these years I have found my prices are fair though. Why? Because I am in high demand. And I have a very high percentage of recurring customers. Both locals and men coming from all cities of the world.
“You are pricey! But the quality of your bodywork deserves what you get! And the experience you deliver is special and unique. I must say you are worth each and every cent of euro you are charging. Since I also enjoyed each and every second of you”.
I speak to men from all origins, religions, ages and races on a daily basis. All of them are able to enjoy it. And since they pay my massage service I have proof the prices are fair.
“Espensive are plane tickets and hotels, but not you. I’d fly to you twice a week, man”.
Value and price in numbers
I have an amazing list of bills and expenses. I’m facing them every day and all year long. I don’t want to bore you with this though! Just understand I’m paying taxes because my job —and my business!— is legal and lawful.
