I am now in Saint Petersburg, Russia. This country is chockful of girls ready for a fumble with or without money.
Still, I digress, so onto to my tips.
- Internet research in the Russian language produces way more results and more insider stuff. However, when contacting a girl, you might have some language issues. Google translate can help but not so much if you have to speak to her.
On arrival in SPB, buy a Russian SIM card. A goo Beeline card ( available all over town and in the Arrivals area of the airport ), can get you unlimited data, 1000 minutes, 300 SMS for USD 11 or so. Worth it.
Prices can start as low as RUB 300 (i.e. USD 4-5) per hour. Yes, that's right. Right now, however, the vast majority seem to be RUB 1000-1500 (USD 15-25) per hour. Always stay below USD 25 per hour if possible and never believe that a higher price necessarily means a better girl or service: it's just a higher price. that's all. You can get excellent, literally full "BBFS" service and more, for USD 25 if you are in the right zone ( okay, you can call it "lucky" for want of a more easily understood term . I won't say it's the norm but I won't say it's not either: it's different depending on how you and the girl vibe. Despite it being a "business", everything really is a mindset game.
Try to go for individual girls rather than salons. Salons here can be a mixed bag. A general rule is to skip anything a tout offers passers-by. Salons are supposedly illegal and, although they exist in reasonable numbers, they tend to be hidden away.
Salons that you find using Russian language internet search are okay in terms of safety but they're often total dumps even though you can find attractive girls ( and others ) for under USD 20 there. Also, the access to the salon will be very shady looking and it's always very dark--they turn off the lights to avoid attracting the neighbour's and cops' attention--inside for the first 10 minutes. But, it's usually safe for your wallet and your person. Further, in salons, it's common for the establishment to take 30-50% of the fee, so it's not the best choice for the girl and might lead to charges for "extras". Salons usually have a bouncer but that's more for the girls' security--they usually do not interfere at all with you and the girl.
Another rule is to go in for the lowest price without discussing what you want--hey @ USD 15-20, it's worth a shot--and see what you get. If that doesn't work, then try asking for what you want.
Check out all the "free" choices first. Russian girls are very open and comfortable sexually, so many people do better with that. Even the language barrier is only psychological: if you hit it off, you hit it off. However, stay the fuck away from anyone on dating sites, Tinder, Badoo etc. that even so much as hints at a compensation of some sort. You're better off checking out professionals .
