Finally made the big leap and contacted a provider from Indiana and her response asked for pre payment of half of the contribution when setting an appointment for later. Is this a norm or a warning sign. Newbie Grumen
As a provider here for BDSM , not to mention a Professional Dominatrix with many years of experience, a deposit has become a requirement. The reasoning for this is due to the fact that some of so-called clients taking advantage or not showing up at all.
This causes the Dommes to work harder to get the proper clients who will pay for the time they schedule. Now if you have a problem with paying a deposit in cash, ask the provider what they will accept for a deposit. I know that I will accept Pre-Paid Debit Cards or a minimum of 2 items from my Amazon Wishlist.
Ask around to get the general census.
