With so many businesses around the world surrendering to the power of cryptocurrency, it was a matter of time until one of these came along. The Birmingham-based escort agency Passion VIP, in the United Kingdom, is now accepting payments in Bitcoin.
The new feature allows people looking for adult companionship services to pay in a discreet way, much like cash, but with the safe advantages of using Bitcoin.
Bitcoin Examiner took a look at their website and confirmed the presence of the “Bitcoin accepted here” button. On their page, they say that “Birmingham Escorts from Passion VIP are the hottest escorts in the city! Our superb and large gallery of high class escorts represents the cream of female companions. Our escorts in Birmingham are genuine ladies. They love the work they do! It certainly shows in the quality of their company. They are the perfect choice for the executive client seeking quality female companionship”.
Talking with the website ZDNet.com, a representative of Passion VIP said that the company felt there are probably “a lot of people out there who had Bitcoins and no way to really enjoy spending them. Accepting Bitcoins seemed an obvious extension of our own interest in the currency”.
To get the company of a classy lady from Passion VIP and pay with Bitcoins, all the clients have to do is follow these three simple steps highlighted in the agency’s website:
- Contact our reception to make your booking and make our receptionist aware that you would like to pay with Bitcoins.
- Once our receptionist has confirmed the booking with you send your Bitcoin payment to our payment address.
- Within a few minutes our receptionist will call you back to confirm that the payment has been received and your chosen lady will be on the way!
And what about prices? Well, before telling you that let us just inform you that Passion VIP has ‘Standard’ and ‘Elite’ ladies. For the first type, the cost of one hour is 2.5 BTC and 90 minutes cost 3.75 BTC. Then, you can also choose a dinner date with the lady, which costs 5 BTC, an overnight will cost 14 BTC and all additional hours are 2 BTC each.
Regarding the ‘Elite’ lady’s time: one hour will cost 2.75 BTC, 90 minutes are compensated with 4.75 BTC and a dinner date costs 5.25 BTC. An overnight will be 15 BTC and additional hours cost 2.25 BTC each. Make the math at the current exchange rate and that’s big money.
