I very much doubt there is such a thing. Apart from anything else, first you'd need to define your terms - what do you mean. Are you referring to local businesses, Internet based dating sites, profile aggregators etc etc.

I know of one firm that tried for their own purposes to create a directory for their own internal use a few years ago and they got to over 1000 businesses defined in their own terms.

If you want such a list I think you'll have to do what they did - get on the phone, check directories, refer to search engines, ask contacts and start sending out emails.

There used to be a guy that ran a web page that had all the agencies he knew of listed and even ranked them "endorsed" or "not endorsed" based on customer evaluations.

I think one of the bigger agencies sued him and his legal defense put him out of business. 

Can somebody refresh an old man's memory on this topic?

Can somebody post a copy of Jim's old list or email it to me?  I can't find it on the internet anymore.  It was the biggest list I ever saw.  If I knew it would be taken down I would have copied it.

You might be better off using Mamba.
With an agency you will be paying for every girl you meet

I have more money than time.  Mamba takes too long.    I want an agency to arrange the meeting.  It is more expensive but faster. If I can pay 50-70 euro to walk in right there and then and meet a lady that is my preference.
