Tried out a Filipina Escort – Manila Courtesans Review
Escorts aren’t something I normally use because usually they’re expensive, you pay a premium for the convenience of a girl being delivered to your place, and are risking the pictures not matching her appearance.
It’s easy in places like the Philippines and Thailand to find a hot girl yourself in person from a red light district, beer bar, gogo bar, disco etc. even as a foreigner on holiday there for the first time.
Involving any kind of middle man isn’t necessary in big cities, especially random touts on the street who offer to take you to find ‘lady boom boom’ or anything like that. Wanting their commission.
Via Manila Courtesans
Then with escort websites you don’t know what you’re getting until the girl is at your door, will have to pay up front, and usually it’s covered sex (condom). Although if you’re concerned about STDs that’s good.
I did try Smooci in Bangkok because they lowered the rates of escorts to around $60 – $100, comparable to the cost at a gogo bar. Prior to Smooci coming along escort sites in BKK charged $150 – 200 for two hours.
That was good, but Manila doesn’t have Smooci yet. From research on Philippines forums the most recommended Filipina escort agency was always ‘Manila Courtesans’.
She’s actually 20 now
I recently tried them out to verify their reliability. Everything went fine so I would recommend them if you want the convenience, exclusivity and low STD risk (not many guys will want to pay these prices).
Unlike my Smooci review this time I paid for it myself. Manila Courtesans do pay to put a banner ad on this blog but as far as actually trying them out myself I paid and this is an unbiased review.
No Rejection Fee / Chaperone
Manila Courtesans don’t charge a fee if you reject the girl based on her pictures not matching her, unlike some Manila escort agencies.
Also the girl arrives alone to your door, not with some local guy as a bodyguard.
My friend once used a Manila escort agency, sadly he can’t remember the name, who wanted to charge him 1000 pesos for cancellation and transportation expenses.
They had no written policy on their website and he only got a verbal confirmation on the phone that there wouldn’t be any charge (‘Ok Sirrrrr’).
It got awkward when he wanted to turn her away and refused to pay the 1000, the guy turned violent and abusive motioning inside his jacket as if to pull out a weapon, but luckily hotel security arrived just in time.
Manila Escort Prices
The cheapest price on Manila Courtesans is 4500 pesos ($90) for two hours with Kimmy, you get at least two shots (sex twice). Then they have a couple girls at 5000.
Long time rates are pretty crazy. Even if they were cheap I never really recommend committing to long time with any kind of prostitutes you’re new to.
Start with short time, see how well you vibe with the girl then extend from there if you want to. Maybe they’ll come back over off the clock and it’ll end up cheaper.
I picked ‘Simone’ (stage name) for 7000 pesos short time, two hours, two shots.
Manila Courtesans Review
So Simone arrived alone, at 7.10pm, to my condo at Gramercy in Makati. I’d booked for 7pm mid afternoon so pretty punctual. No ‘Filipino time’ delays.
She was beautiful, not quite as perfect as the photos above which were from a professional model shoot with make up and high resolution camera, perfect lighting etc. but still fine.
Decent GFE (girlfriend experience), i.e. not cold and mercenary. Like most Pinays and Thais she was warm and friendly. Spoke decent English.
The funny part was I realized I’d actually met her before a year earlier when she was working on P Burgos as a massage girl. She’s put on a lot of weight since then but in a good way, went from skinny to full figured with decent boobs and butt.
From the different body type and the make up in the escort photos I didn’t recognise her until she arrived.
We had sex before a few times for 2000 pesos, plus 500 for the massage shop that you normally have to pay with massage freelancers on P Burgos. Now I’m paying 7000 😀 Although it was two shots.
But I was happy to see her as she stopped meeting me back then. She got a boyfriend and told me she’d stop working, and didn’t reply to texts.
I remember thinking why is a girl this hot standing on the street doing massage on P Burgos, I’m glad she finally moved up in the P4P world.
Since I was paying 7000 and we’d met before I asked to do certain extra things we hadn’t done before. She agreed 🙂 Can’t really blog about it publicly. Those things are at the girls’ discretion.

No Filipino Guys?
The live support on Manila Courtesans asked if I was a ‘local or American’ when booking (they call all westerners American). They explained they are reluctant to send girls to condos of local guys.
They do accept local guys staying in 4 and 5 star hotels though.
They also asked if I was staying at Gramercy on Airbnb (I was) or if I was the unit owner. They do allow it but they ask to see proof of the reservation first over email.
Manila vs Bangkok Escorts
Manila Courtesans don’t list what services the girl does, which is a shame. Bangkok escort sites list everything, e.g. whether they do anal, cum in mouth, cum on face, rimjob, couples, costumes, etc.
The scale and variety of the prostitution scene is way better in Thailand but the Philippines is a close second and they speak English better.
But all girls on Manila Courtesans do DFK (deep French kissing), BBBJ (bareback blowjob) and GFE (companionship, the ‘girlfriend experience’).
Blowjob and full service
Meaning they won’t lie there like a starfish and instantly rush to leave afterwards. Most Filipina prostitutes are pleasant, just the same as normal girls in terms of attitude and how they interact with you.
Are Escorts Worth it?
In the Philippines you can of course find girls for free or next to nothing.
You can do the dating thing and take them to Starbucks next to your condo, Gramercy is connected to Century City mall with coffee shops and a private entrance via the mall. Then back to the room for a ‘movie’.
Keeping in touch
Some girls on dating sites like FilipinoCupid, Pinalove or AsianDating will want to come directly over to your place for ‘taxi money’ of 500 – 1500 pesos or so and not consider themselves prostitutes.
But there are some arguments for escorts, maybe you’re on a brief holiday, lazy, concerned about STDs etc. Most escorts are pretty hot as well although there are some ugly ones too online.
For comparison, a Manila gogo dancer at P Burgos would set you back 2900 for the barfine, 3000 short time on top, one or two lady drinks at 300, your beer at 150… so in total over 6000 plus your time. Or ~4500 at the EDSA gogo bars.
A freelancer at ZZYZX might ask 3000 up for one shot. At Royal disco they ask 2500 short 5000 long. At LA Cafe or on the streets around P Burgos they take much less (1000 – 2000) but might not be that pretty.
So 7000 ($140) is quite a lot for Manila but for two shots, no time spent, the possibility to keep in touch and meet again for less, and great service from a reputable Philippines escort agency, it’s ok.
Not something I’d do often though. You could take a bus to Angeles City and barfine two gogo girls and still have change left over for a budget hotel for that.
