15 Acronyms/Terms all clients and adult service providers should know
The following are important terms in the body rub industry. If new to erotic massage (Nude Massage), please familiarize yourself with these terms before booking an appointment or applying for a job with us.
ASP: Adult service provider, or a model who provides an escort or body rub service in the adult industry
Agency: An organization or individual that manages many ASPs or models. The agency handles all calls, bookings and advertising. The agency takes a percentage of the fee for each session.
Independent: ASP who works on her own, without an agency affiliation. The ASP manages her own calls, bookings, advertising and finances.
Bait & switch -- 1) Ads, pictures that describe someone else, 2) Promised one thing or person, given another.
CMT: Certified Massage Therapist
Envelope: Cash payments for an ASP’s services are placed in an envelope. Rather than handing the ASP cash directly, or discussing money, the envelope is left in a conspicuous location for the ASP to discreetly pick up.
FS: Full service. Self explanatory
GFE: Girlfriend Experience. A frequently used, it refers to a session that is more like lovemaking with a girlfriend than a commercial service, whatever that means! It generally implies more about the tone & tenor of the session than about specific services provided, but many believe GFE should include the possibility of DFK, DATY, UTF and a broad array of FS positions.
Incall: Client meets the ASP at her location.
LMT: Licensed Massage Therapist. See also CMT (Certified Massage Therapist)
Outcall: ASP meets client at his location
Screening: An ASP or agency does a pre-session background check on a new client. E.g. collecting verifiable personal info such as the hobbyist’s real name, place of employment, home or work phone, home or work address, and/ or a referral from a trusted provider. Be prepared to provide a Linkedin or Facebook profile.
TER: The erotic review site, adult services classifieds board, and hobby discussion forums.
Upselling: An ASP takes the advertised fee upfront, but in the midst of the session she asks for more money for more services. (e.g. She might undress and give a massage for the advertised $$, but then ask for additional $, aka hidden charges. e.g. it is supposed to be a nude massage but she is not nude and charges extra to take off her clothes)
Cross street: When booking an appointment, all clients are supposed to call at the cross street when they arrive (ex: 42nd and 3rd ave). The client is not supposed to go directly to the incall location (rub map).
