New York Escort Business On The Decline Because Of The NBA Lockout

It’s not just NBA fans and arena workers who are being impacted by the NBA lockout- now in day 145, ::sad face:: CNBC’s Darren Rovell reports that New York escorts are also feeling the pinch:

A 30 percent decline seems to be the magic number, even for Henry, who runs an escort service in New York that he says charges between $400 and $4,000 an hour, depending on the woman.

Henry says he takes between 65 and 80 percent of the total cut to match the players and other high-profile fans, who are with the client an average of four hours.

“There are replacements but they aren’t as consistent and not nearly as high paying,” Henry said.

Wow, I’d imagine that it means business is probably up in cities like Las Vegas, LA, Houston and Miami where players have been converging to workout until the lockout ends. Either that or Twitter. Social media has made it easier to troll for available ummm “love” but I guess it doesn’t necessarily guarantee the women will leave and keep it quiet.
