|Schenectady, New York|
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 1997 01:25:51 -0400 I haven't seen any listings in the Guide for the NY State Capital District, so you'll be pleased to know that the worlds oldest profession DOES exist here. Unfortunately, it's being cracked down on harder than ever now. The mayor of Schenectady has even gone so far as to try to ban strip clubs (unsuccessfully), so it's not the most congeneal atmosphere. The streetwalkers for the most part are minorities, and can be found on State St between Broadway and Swan St. They walk with an exagerated arm swing so they're easy to spot which is good and bad. You can see who they are and who you'd consider approaching, but law enforcement knows who they are, too. Pricing ranges from $10-$20 for french to $100+ for greek. No two women have the same pricing, and they'll all try to take you for as much as they can get. Mugging risk would be higher than in most places if not for the already pervading police presence in the area. Incall services are limited in Schenectady. Of the massage parlors and spas, only a small few provide sex services, and they have to be approached rather obliquely to avoid scaring them into just giving you a backrub and sending you on your way. These are further from downtown Schenectady and the "Stockade", where the streetwalker are found, and with one exception, they are all clean and the girls are slightly above average to exceptional in looks and ability. That one exception is less concerned with police interference, dirtier, with girls of mediocre talent and looks (most if not all of whom are substance abusers), but their pricing is MUCH lower - closer to that of a street walker. Prices vary from shop to shop, but are generally in the area of $25 for a half hour not including the tip. Most girls have a tip schedule similar to the streetwalkers' pricing, but some have been known to ask for up to double that amount. I'm still just breaking the surface of the are's outcall potential, but it looks promising. With the mayor's action against gentlemen's clubs, a number of girls have taken to dancing for their own select clientelle...usually "favorite" customers from when they worked at the clubs. They are difficult to find and contact, but it's worth the effort. From time to time, some will place a one week ad in a local paper or post flyers in the area's adult novelty shops for personal entertainment services. The ones who advertise "full services" are usually the best way to go. Of the local escort services, only one to my knowledge provides any kind of sex services, and they are under scrutiny by law enforcement. I have only minimal knowledge of outcall pricing, but have yet to encounter a fee below $200. Not the best environment for the sex industry, but Schenectady is proof (if anyplace is) that the industry will not and cannot be totally prevented or stopped.
