It's not actually my problem Jimmy sweetie because even if neighbours posed no threat to me while I was working I still wouldn't have offered them.

It is that kind of attitude that has led thousands of punters to switch to the Eastern Europeans or brothels such as HOD who give the punter what they require.   :mad:

Really good topic, Ali and some really good posts. This is one of my bugbears and I notice it quite a lot in my area. I'm with all the half- ourers on this one - the only exception being LMP. I did try the £100 hour more than a few times at a few nearby places and found it was just an excuse to waste time. I mainly punt for the cheap-thrill-fast-food experience and a good half hour at a reasonable price suits me fine - as Jimmy says, HOD are great service providers for this.
Cassie's post tells me what I have long suspected so cheers for that:

Quite simply the high half hour rates are to put guys off booking them as they know they will get an hour booking instead and do the same amount of work as they would in a half hour booking but just spend a lot more time wasting time.  Some also do not like half hours as they cannot be bothered to get ready for £50 so put them at £80 instead.
Half hour should be half the hourly cost.  Simple.  If it isnt then you know you have a prossie who does not really enjoy her job or cannot be arsed with the hassle of having to shower and get dressed (takes 5minutes) to see you so charges you extra for her spending 5 -10 minutes getting ready.

It is rare to read anything negative about HOD, they seem to be the "John Lewis" of the punting world, excellent web-site and prices to suit everyone, possibly the best brothel in London.    :thumbsup:

Too many Indies want us to abide by their rules, no 30 minute bookings etc.   :dash:

Spot on. Let's hope punters vote with their feet and the good service providers lead the way. HOD and LMP are genuine service providers, many of those "indies" on AW are either scammers or just crap service providers.
I'm pretty luck here because HOD is just up the road from me and LMP just a little further.

I don't know about thousands, but that's funny because a lot of clients I saw at HoD decided they liked my "attitude" so much they decided forego HoD and visit me as an independent. Ironic considering what you just said, right?

You're a different person to my clients and therefore don't understand what they want from a meeting. Lots of people don't want half hour bookings and I don't want to attract half hour bookings so why should I pretend otherwise? :P

Agreed that you can offer any service you want and that punters are all individual, some want different things. Most men would have visited you at HOD presumably for 30 mins, before seeing you as an indie; it's rare for someone to have an hour in a parlour (but not unheard of) and most wouldn't do it with an unknown. The point I was making was if escorts don't offer 30 mins bookings at sensible prices it is rare I will see them, hence they are superfluous to me. The general consensus seems to be punters want a choice, many escorts have had to offer quickies because there is demand for it, there may not have been as much demand a few years ago; I've yet to hear of escorts being overwhelmed with demands for overnighters - the punters wallet will ultimately dictate the market more than the escort's wishes.

That's true; but, for some of us, a longer daytime visit is preferable to a 30-minute visit.

And, imo, there are certain Escorts who are worth saving up for in order to have the occasional overnighter with.  [He wrote, ungrammatically!]

Long daytime visits and overnighters seem totally bizarre to me, I sometimes wonder if some of you gents are seeking company more than a shag, nothing wrong with that I suppose.  :unknown:

Each to his own, eh; Jimmy?

There's no right or wrong, imo.  Having been happily married [some of the time! ;)], if I want a shag and company nowadays and am prepared to visit less often than in earlier punting days when just a shag would satisfy me, then so be it, surely?

I like longer bookings (typically 2 hours). And I do like some chat as part of the booking. But, no the chat/ company is not my main motive!

For me (and many others) penetrative sex is not the be all and end all of sex. I get more sexual pleasure (usually) from things like French kissing, 69, licking, face sitting, role play etc. To be honest nowadays, I usually get more pleasure from a really good snog than a shag.

I therefore look for WG's whose pricing structure suggests they like longer bookings, and who like a wide variety of sex as well as a good shag.

I do understand that, but surely you'd be better off on a dating site/in a relationship? Instead of spending ridiculous amounts of money on a WG you could take someone you really want to be with out for a nice dinner etc.?  :unknown:

I think that applies to quite a few punters, you only have to read some of the fluffie FR's on auto-censored where they talk of "making love", you don't "make love" to a prostitute, you shag her -------- there is a big difference.

I prefer to have multiple short bookings than long, sometimes I have seen the same girl 2 times in one day but with a couple of hours between, maybe lunchtime then after work.
 If the rate is too much compared to hour rate I do not book. Even if the hour looks reasonable I am only concerned with the time scale I book.

Come on, lets be realistic. If you, Jimmy, or anybody else can tell me how a ugly 60 year old bloke can snog a good looking 20 year old woman for 2 hours at little or no cost, I will gladly stop punting.

You have now given more information and again I'm not dismissing or having a go at you but now you say you can "snog a good looking 20 year old woman for 2 hours at little or not cost." Please explain how you get 2 hours at little or no cost? That doesn't sound like punting? If you are as ugly as you say I am surprised a) that you can get a good looking twenty year old to snog you for two hours, even if it is paid and b) if you are as ugly as you say that this comes at "little or no cost? What does that mean?
Sorry, but what you've written doesn't really add up at the moment.  :unknown:

Isn't he saying he can't snog a civvy so that's why he punts?

Really not complicated. I can't get 2 hours of snogging, sex, chat, etc with a good looking young woman at little or no cost. Therefore I'm happy to pay for it. I think the easiest and most practical way to do that is via punting... a lot more practical (in reality) than your suggestion of joining a dating agency, wining and dining, etc.

I would think the key question of my last post was what is "little or no cost" - I would be interested to know the exact amount "a little" is and also how getting it for free is punting? Telling me it's "not complicated" suggests I'm having difficulty understanding clear and specific prose but I don't think that's the case. I would welcome an answer to my question.  :)

Yumyum. May I suggest you look again at the posting I made originally? The one that went:-

"Come on, lets be realistic. If you, Jimmy, or anybody else can tell me how a ugly 60 year old bloke can snog a good looking 20 year old woman for 2 hours at little or no cost, I will gladly stop punting."

The important part was "IF you, Jimmy or anybody else can tell me how a ugly 60 year old bloke can...." (Come on... this is clearly asking for your advice on how to get a low cost snog. Its clearly not a claim that I know how I can achieve that myself!)

Is it really not obvious that what I meant was that I don't know how a 60 year bloke can pull a good looking young woman at little or no cost??  (In addition I was casting severe doubt on your earlier suggestion that joining a dating agency would lead to me snogging good looking women. If you really believe dating agencies really lead to success for 60 year old blokes looking for a no holds barred snog with young women at low cost... then you have a far higher regard for dating agencies than I do. )

This is a request for opinions and a rant. There seems to be many escorts who charge £80 for 30, but £100 for an hour. They might not like doing shorter bookings or more likely they like wasting time. Do you fellow punters think an hour rate is better value, if a 30 minute rate is expensive?

Personally, if it is my first booking and the 30 minute rate is say £80, I don't think I'll book an hour as it works out at £50 for 30 - I just don't bother ringing. I don't know how this logic came to exist amongst escorts, that men will always pay a cheaper hour rate, over an expensive 30 minute one. Because punters like me, just see someone else.

Lastly, a lot of hour bookings can work out at only 20 minutes sex, making it poor value for the punter. We also know a lot have a cum once policy, even for an hour.

In terms of monetary value a lot of rates seem to offer more 'bang for the buck' if you go with an hour rather than 30 mins. The problem is you can be victim to lot more timewasting in an hour session than in a 30 min one. In 30 mins it's straight down to business with very little faffing about, so in reality 30mins gets you more of what you actually want.

The ones that charge disproportionally high for 30 min appointments are the ones that don't really want to do them because it means more sex and little or no opportunity to whittle the clock down.
These are probably the ones you should bin first if you actually want a good time.
