I require a 20% deposit from all new clients that I see. If you become a regular client of mine, then the deposit can be forgone. To proceed with booking, you may either use C@$hApp (it can be downloaded onto a smartphone), or an Am@zon gift card (either by purchasing an e-gift card and sending me the clam code, or buying a physical gift card at a store and sending me the claim code on the back of the card). Both forms are easy and are the only forms of deposits I take.
Many times I have heard the phrase "I was scammed, so I don't do deposits" from people. It is an ongoing urban legend that a provider who asks for a deposit must be a scammer. It is important to do your homework on me if you feel concerned about the need for a deposit. If so, you will see that I have no negative reports, a fully valid website, top SEO placement for "Tantra San Francisco", valid contact info, and I advertise on several other adult websites where I needed to verify my identity to advertise there.
It is true that indeed, there are people who create fake websites and ads and/or ask for money upfront on scraper sites (websites created by stealing ads from other providers and pasting them without consent). But this has nothing to do with the tantra providers themselves. Many people need to cancel last minute or simply do not show up during their appointment time. This becomes stressful to accommodate. Hotels and other businesses ask for deposits or credit cards to secure a customer’s spot. This is common in the service industry. It is a myth that providers who ask for deposits are scammers.
Also, not to play the devil's advocate, but when scheduling a session with me, you will be bringing a large offering with you. A 20% deposit is small potatoes compared to the total cost of the session. People who are serious about their business (like myself) would rather have a busy schedule and create a fabulous experience for both of us than steal a 20% deposit and be out of integrity.
If desired, you are welcome to have a phone chat with me to prove the legitimacy of who I am. I do not do video calls or meet in person. A phone call is how I connect before the session. Also, sending a deposit ensures that you can bring less physical cash to the session, so it's a win-win all around. And I feel a lot more juicy and relaxed overall when a person can trust me from the get-go. Hopefully this all makes sense, and thank you for reading!
