Tip vs expectations at an AMP (aka storefront shop)

Asking this before I post more reviews and "recommendations" (Yes or No). I'm old school, where 60 got you a simple happy ending, maybe topless. Now, that seems to have jumped to 100? Or am I visiting the wrong shops? I think what was 60 is now 80, and maybe 100 would be for a great provider at a shop. For a HJ.

I frequent shops in the East Bay, and for the most part my recommendations, if it was a choice, would be "Maybe", based on what I would expect vs what I get for my tip. Doesn't mean I wouldn't go back, just my opinion on tip requested vs services received. For a review, do I say "No" based on what I think you guys (maybe the unregistered guy who can't read the review) would expect if they visit. Or do I say "Yes" because I see potential with that girl, with my full review basically saying YMMV? In a way, I'd rather encourage mongers to check out a potentially good place to build a larger database of opinions.

I appreciate any feedback, because I'd rather have my reviews be useful vs 'useless" (Per Twister for Review: Concord Health Up Massage - Gina, and I agree the "Review" is useless).

I’m in the East Bay too. From my experience my go to place for a good massage and HJ is tipped $60. That might be cause they know I’ve been coming for a while. New places I visit are usually $80 for HJ and $100-120 for a BJ. I haven’t received FS at a store front. It that I’m against it. It’s just I haven’t found a girl hot enough for me to ask.

First time I went to WenV (which was a sister shop to GM, but opened first), the girl asked if I wanted "Boom Boom'[ (emphasized with a couple of pelvic thrusts). I was taken aback, as I hadn't expected the new management changed the shop that much, so I declined. On one other visit, there was a fairly hot blond latina who asked what I wanted, to which I responded "everything" (my old RedBook days response). She said $160. I wasn't carrying that much cash, so I had to decline.
I believe WenV was a sister shop to GM because WenV had a great girl named Emily, and one time when I called to see if she was available, the PO said "she is working in Concord today". I checked rubmaps, and the only shop in Concord that had a recent review for an Emily was GM.

The prices go up because guys are willing to pay it, plain and simple. I see reviews on the peninsula where guys are dropping $100+house for a mechanical HJ and a forced 30 minute massage. To me, that's just crazy. For reference, the places I prefer to frequent are .6 house for the hour and base .6 for HJ, but if she is really good, or if the massage is really good or allows touching and I actually enjoy myself, I'll drop .8 and feel OK about it. For 1.0 I better be passed out in the car afterwards 'cause it was so good.

House fees are going up to $70-$80 an hour.
Almost all AMPs in
Mountain View are now $70 or $80.
Wouldn't be surprised if they hit $90-$100 soon.

On this topic, anyone with some pointers on places close to Oakland that actually has a solid massage and hj? I’m not looking for more. Few shops I’ve seen the massage is no better then a Kgirl massage.
