Mistress Dark Rose writes from Her private Aspley dungeon….
Alas, too many time-wasters have infringed on My business of late, prompting Me to require deposits from new clients to secure some types of bookings, specifically evening and extended sessions.
Why do this, you ask?
As most of you know, I’ve operated My business for years now based on trust. My clients trust Me implicitly, and know only too well the value of My time. And yes, I appreciate genuine new clients will be slightly inconvenienced, however no more so than missing out on a session with Me because some stupid loser booked their spot. Once you’ve spent time in My presence, however, you will know that it was well worth it.
Sometimes I think people have the impression I don’t have to do anything for a session except walk down My stairs!
As My regular clients can attest, I painstakingly prepare for every session – each one is tailored to suit a diverse range of expectations, which I always strive to achieve, if not surpass.
I also have to make arrangements in My personal life to accommodate My clients, especially same-day and short notice bookings, like buying meals for My family and paying My child’s babysitter. I’ve recently had many occasions where I’d paid sitter’s fees for My child, come home to prepare for a client, only to have to turn around less than an hour later and collect her because the “no-show” didn’t materialise.
Hence the minimum $50 non-refundable deposit for evenings and extended sessions, which will be deducted from your first session fee.
If you fail to attend, at least My sitter’s fees are covered.
