    I wonder if escorts/call-girls/gigolos are included in those 40
professions - this segment of the sex-worker industry most definitely
operates on a base pay and tip system (i.e. $125-250 base pay and tipping is
based on the customer's satisfaction with "services rendered").

    OBCONLANG: What word(s) do your conlangs have for tips? tipping?
"services rendered", etc.
