Apologies for jumping in with my first post asking for advice but I suppose... why not? I presume I will have at least one review to post in the next couple of weeks to do my part. I'm wondering if the difference in price between some of the independents/Asian Mystique vs. Hipness adds up to a difference in the experience? After quite a few years in Tokyo I have been living out in the countryside for a couple of years. Trip down to Tokyo near the end of the month and looking to indulge myself a bit. Manami (Melty), Yuko (AM) and either Rizeru or Risa from Hipness are under consideration. Have been in Japan for a while and probably will be for a long time on. My girlfriends for the last 15 years have been Japanese, my next girlfriend will presumably be Japanese, so for that reason I'm kind of tempted to go with a Thai or Philipino companion (ie. Hipness) just for, I don't know, a change. That being said... strange consumer psychology as such, tells me that something for half the price can't be as "good" somehow. I probably haven't been around as much as some on this board but in my limited experience in this field, well, some hookups are good, some are just alright, and some would be better spent throwing the money out the window and sitting back alone and having a good wank. So even though I would kind of prefer a non-Japanese girl, I'm a bit thrown off because.. my preference would end up being cheaper?? I know, it makes no sense Ha ha, personally I'm hoping for "good" or "great", and I'm wondering if any of you with experience with the above mentioned girls or services have any thoughts on the matter?
