These are the things you should look for;
Website – Normally your first contact with a potential provider is its website, does it give you a complete synopsis of the resort and the services rendered? Do they cover up lack of information with many photos and no substance? Are the FAQ’s informative and cover most basic questions?
Management – How long have they been in business and what is the experience of management? Always send a question to packager and see how long it takes them to get back to you; this is a good indicator of their overall service.
Location – Is the resort location in a democratic, stable and friendly country, Cuba and Venezuela are not. How long it will take you to get to actual resort after you land at the primary destination (some resorts require a night in hotel before reaching resort by a second flight or land carrier due to its distance from the airport? Costa Rica requires this. Thailand has a very unstable government with an erratic leader and difficult to get to. prostitution legal in the country? The Dominican allows prostitution and has a very stable democratic government.
Package – Be sure you know what the package includes. Are there any extra charges? What do you want it to include? Do you get a variety of package and accommodations?
All-Inclusive vs. Flexibility – Do you want the flexibility of your own apartment, hotel or all inclusive beachfront villa?
Food – Are you happy eating at the same location from a set menu or buffet with the same people or would you prefer eating you meals in different restaurants with an unlimited variety of foods, chefs, locations within walking distance?
Girls – If full-time girls (companions, escorts, tour guides) are the provided and shown on the website are they real or are they “representative”? Are they available when you will be there? Do they just show groups of girls or website visitors get to see individual girls that are currently there?
Choosing Girls – Does the website explain completely how you choose your companions? Do you need to compete with other guests for the companion of your choice? Would you rather choose your companions from over 25 girls in advance with the flexibility of trading out every day with no “bidding” or competition? Do you want to see the girl you will be with that night waking up that same morning with another guest? Do you want to see her during the next day with the guest she is going to be with the next night? If you want a girl you really enjoyed leave you because she is reserved by someone else?
Change Out – Is there any charge to change girls, do you have to pay for transport of new girls, how long does it take to get new girl? Costa Rica is infamous for this tactic since all resorts are at 3 – 6 hours away.
Accommodations – What are your accommodations and your specific room/apartment? Keep in mind that although you spend a good portion of the day outdoors, you do spend a considerable amount of time and more intimate moments in your room/apartment.
Air Travel – Check travel schedules carefully. Do you really want to arrive in the late evening when you have been traveling all day? This is a night wasted.
Things to Do – Discos, gambling, tours, water sports, are they available and how far are they from your accommodations.
Price – All adult service providers whether they be in-inclusive villas, apartments with full-time escort(s) or “call girls” at your resort supply the same basic service. Compare prices carefully, do you want to pay top dollar for basically the same thing?
Deposit – Do you want to send a 25% deposit ($1000 – $2000) to an unknown resort or send $250 deposit? Best Dominican Adult Vacation deposit is $250.
Help – Do you have a full-time concierge and local phone to reach him 24 hours a day in case of an emergency or just an important question?
Villa / Apartment / Call Girl? – Can your chosen provider give you a complete menu of superb and economical services with equal terrific customer service and facilities?
Forums – Although some forums give you a fair review be very skeptical as many owners create their own forum letters. Most guests that go to these type resorts do not write to forums and keep their visits very private.
Questions – Make sure when you send questions or requests the answer is addressed directly and not “glossed over” which stock platitudes or vague responses.
A stooge, in magical terms, is someone pretending to be a audience member, but who is actually “in on the secret” and is secretly helping the magician perform various effects that range from mentalism to “normal” illusions. The use of a stooge is often thought of when magicians perform impossible effects on television or theatre performances, however, stooges aren’t just limited to TV – they can be used in table-hopping environments, small parties and even informal gatherings. Stooges are used for a variety of effects, and this article will explain a few of them.
While all eyes are on the magician, a stooge can subtly remove objects in order to make them disappear. In one such effect, the magician places a genuine spectator’s ring under a napkin and holds it from outside the napkin. He then lets various spectators feel under the napkin to confirm the ring is still there, and then very fairly wraps the ring with the napkin. After suitable dramatics, the ring has vanished and reappeared in some bizarre object next to the spectator.
How is this done? Simple – the last spectator to feel the ring is actually a stooge. Instead of just checking the ring is still under the napkin, the stooge takes the ring and conceals it in his hand (known as palming) before confirming that the ring is still there. The magician then keeps the audience’s attention while the stooge can place the ring in an impossible location.
There are literally thousands of mentalism (i.e. mind-reading) effects that can be made even more powerful with the use of a stooge. Imagine a magician, in an informal situation, asks one spectator to select any object in the room while the magician is out of the room; when he returns, he is able to “sense” the object and finally picks the chosen object – all thanks to secret communication with the stooge. Alternatively, a spectator may totally freely select a card from a deck of cards the magician never touches yet the magician is able to instantly (or after sufficient dramatic strain) reveal the chosen card.
This secret communication usually involves some kind of physical contact (usually under a table), visual cues (subtle nodding, pointing etc.), or in larger situations, audible prompts; all of which must be used with care to prevent detection. A new addition to the magic market is “Mobile Stooge” which turns your mobile phone into a totally undetectable way for a stooge and magician to communicate with each other with no physical, audible or visual cues – the magician can even be in a different room to the stooge. This has allowed for some more exciting, adventurous effects to be created.
Perhaps the least used, false inspections allow the magician to use a gimmicked device (i.e. something that appears normal but any real inspection will reveal that the object has been altered), have it inspected (by the stooge) so that the audience will believe the object is totally normal. This allows the magician to get away with murder!
Stooges aren’t just used for magic – less honest people may use very similar techniques while playing games or even gambling in order to beat the house, and have even been used in television competitions such as Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (where an audience member coughed at certain points – if only they were using Mobile Stooge!)
