Review: GFE Manila Escorts — Manila, Philippines

There was a time when the term “Girlfriend Experience,” commonly shortened to GFE, had a very specific meaning in the sex industry. As the term has become more well known thanks to the internet and even mainstream movies about prostitution it has lost much of its meaning. Nowadays it’s thrown around like the word “sexy” and doesn’t necessarily indicate anything at all.

GFE Manila is an escort service operating in the capital city of the Philippines. It maintains a website which I would imagine is its main source of new customers. It also places advertisements on various websites offering “the best girlfriend escorts in Manila.”

GFE Manila has a fairly large staff. Other escort services in Manila usually have fewer ladies available. The ladies pictured on the website could mostly be described as about average when compared to the general female population in the Philippines. GFE Manila also claims to have some “mystery women” on staff.

Surely many escort services around the world have some women who want to keep their work private. At the same time they need to attract clients. This conundrum is usually dealt with by either posting pictures of the undercover ladies with their faces and other identifying features blocked or by using fake pictures that may or may not resemble the working women themselves. GFE Manila asks potential clients to email them if they’d like to see what the mystery ladies look like.

Appointments with women working at GFE Manila are made through email, over the phone or even via text messaging. Most adult entertainment services around the world refuse to transact business through text messages but GFE Manila actually encourages it on their website, offering phone numbers for users of different carriers. User names for services like Skype and Whatsapp are also provided.

The service’s website advises customers to book several hours in advance. This appears to be both to deal with the horrendous traffic in Manila and to allow the company to dispatch the ladies from their homes which are often far from the center of Manila. There doesn’t appear to be any central office where the women hang around and wait for clients to call.

When a guy contacts GFE Manila to make an appointment they’ll be told who is available. While there may be more than a dozen women pictures on the site as few as two or three can be available at any given time. Even when a customer agrees on one of the available women they’ll often be told to hold while management reaches out to that gal to make sure she is ready to go.

With hours of advance booking and waiting one might expect a high level of preparation on the part of the escorts. In actuality it seems that many of the women look a lot better in their website profile pictures than they do in real life. This isn’t something to get too bent out of shape about since it’s normal for escorts and “regular women” alike to post their best pictures online, but it is worth noting.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with the women who work at GFE Manila but there’s not spectacular about them either. At rate of 6000-10000 Pesos ($140 – 230) per two hour session one may expect a little more.

The service also isn’t anything out of this world. There may be exceptions but standard and straightforward seems to be the name of the game. At the price being charged punters could again be forgiven for expecting a bit more, though I’m sure many will be satisfied with what they get.

A common mantra heard around the world and often repeated on this very website is that “your mileage may vary.” That remains as true at GFE Manila as it does anywhere else. Some guy may book a short date with a woman from this business only to find the love of his life, marry and ride off into the sunset happily ever after. I can only write based on the information I have.

One positive note about GFE Manila is that they run regular specials, offering as much as 1000 Pesos off of the going rate. These specials are based around a particular gal during a particular time period and are posted on the service’s homepage. Negotiation of other rates may even be possible since the company says on its website that it is very flexible, especially with repeat clientele.

GFE Manila only accepts cash, given by the customer directly to the escort. There is no incall service and customers are not permitted to pick up or drop off the escorts. The women arrive and depart on their own.

Scoring a place with multiple women on staff is always tough. The level of service can vary greatly depending on the customer, the individual service provider they see and their chemistry and interaction. It’s even more difficult to score a place that isn’t really “a place” at all, since things like the decor and location cannot even be taken into account.

GFE Manila is a fairly average escort service with prices that rival those in some of the richer and more developed countries around the world. With so much other action available in the city at equal or lower rates it’s difficult to score GFE Manila very highly. I think it’s fair to give the service a full two stars.

    Heads up some of the escorts are ladyboys. (I’m Filipino and I can tell) Love your blog though great info.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the comment. If they do have ladyboys on staff I don’t think they’d send one to a customer who didn’t request it. Cheers.

  2. goodvibes says:

    Saw some familiar girls here, and the prices here are overpriced atleast double. You can some of these girls in fb and local forums.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the comment. I agree that the rates are high but some are on par with the bars that so many guys seem to like. Cheers.

  3. Peter says:


    I m searching japanese escort girl for Dec 27 around Makati.

  4. Andy says:

    I haven’t tried this escort service, but I have used Manila Courtesans a few times….and they are really good. No bait and switch, real girls as shown on the website. And some of them are ex FHM models and damn hot. And Jennifer, the chat operator is simply great, really really helpful. Give us a review rockit!

    • rockit says:

      I don’t have plans to review that service anytime soon.

    • Warren says:

      Andy, who do you recommend at MC and who did you get there before. I appreciate your response since i will be in manila this xmas holidays. Thank you and have a great day!

  5. Peter D says:

    Thanks for the info Rockit. I’m visiting Manila for the first time in Sept. Can you reccomend a bar to go to where the prices are a lot cheaper? I’ll be staying in Makati. The prices quoted by this agency seem rather high for the Phillipines. Thanks

    • rockit says:

      I don’t make recommendations. This website is for entertainment purposes only. Escorts asking 6000 Pesos may actually require less than women in some bars with 3000 Pesos barfines and expected tips of 3000 or more. There are lots of other options around and prices can vary wildly. Cheers.

    • asianhunter says:

      My 2 cents, based on my recent 3 nights in Makati.

      1. Don’t get caught up in the prices. I mean, you don’t wanna be a fool, so you should have some ballpark figures in mind when you approach or are approached. But my BIG regret is getting caught up in the numbers and missing out on what I’m sure would have been a better experience.

      2. I got a girl from Manila Courtesans one time. The girl matched the photos, but not really. Let’s just say her photos were probably her better/best photos. I get that. But my big mistake was that I requested a girl who did not show a lot of skin in her photos. The one who showed up had clearly had one or more kids. The girl was really sweet and tried hard, but I’m just not into paying for a mother’s body.

      Anyway, go have fun, and remember there are not too many places like this in the world.

  6. Warren says:

    Asianhunter, im getting serviced by the same manila courtesan agency, do you remember the girl’s name so i could choose someone else? I appreciate your advice and hope i have a good time in makati. Thanks,

    • Gallandro says:

      Hey there, Warren: I used Manila Courtesans back in May and had a good experience. I’m going back to Manila again in a couple of months on business, so I’ve kept track of the girls on the website. The gal that I saw, Sasha, is no longer listed, and there has been a lot of changeover in the available girls (I’d estimate that 1/3 to 1/2 of the girls are different from when I was there).

      For what it’s worth: I used that site’s online chat function to talk to someone there and get set up with the right girl. I’d recommend using that feature, chatting with the person there, expressing your concern and desires, and going from there.

      Good luck!

    • asianhunter says:

      Sorry, I don’t remember the girl’s name, and I don’t see her picture on their website anymore. If you’re not into the MILF thing, I would recommend that you find a girl that shows her abdomen in her photos, although realistically who knows how old the pictures really are …

      Also, I specifically asked the girl who set up the appointment if their models have had kids, and she said NO. Obviously that was not true.

      As a last resort, you can send the girl back if you’re not happy with what you see, but after waiting for the girl to show up, I was just too ready to get to business. Good luck and have fun!
