Personally I don't agree its still good value, the cheek to me is they are still charging the same £160 for 2 hours that LMP was at its end BUT with 2 less WGs per party, 3 sometimes as LMP on occasion had 8 WGs per party at its great peak. So for me the time has come and gone when I have lost any interest apart from the blatant touting and cheerleading some do on them on here, trying to manipulate UKP and undermine it as I see it.
Em was THE main factor why LMP was so good, she used to be at virtually every party I went to and her being their ensured a well ran party with the WGs kept on their toes. Her personality also added a lot to a party as did Moss upstairs. A shame a once good party who set great standards has descended to this.
I can only write honestly about places where I'm spending my hard-earned punting budget, whether that's seen as cheerleading, touting or undermining a forum by some or not, but I think my varied contributions on here about my punting experiences speak for themselves. I've attended 7 Phoenix parties so far this year, which is a bit less than my usual rate of once a month, which may say something about a waning interest...or not wanting to travel up to C London as often.
I would agree that any issues raised in this review need addressing, I've expressed similar misgivings here. Em has mostly been there when I've attended this year, so she isn't absent, though rarely interjects as she used to. I think she's trying to work out how to revitalise the project.
Time moves on, but I do see what you're saying about less girls for the same money, though I never could get around 7, let alone 8 in the LMP days, as there was also a correspondingly higher guy count. If I can meet 5 hot young girls I fancy over the course of 2 hrs, I still see it as pretty good VFM.
The fact remains that there is no other party provider in London offering anything with a max 2:1 ratio for less, let alone with girls you would actually want to fuck. Any suggestions for alternatives, please??
Out in my patch, Cambridge Parties want £220 for 2.5hrs with fag breaks. The girls they employ are British, I don't know what they go like, but I wouldn't say they are all up to Phoenix standard in looks, though recent additions Jasmine Lau & Lu Elissa do look quite nice.
GGP when they're at Sutton want £100 for 1.5hrs, they have nice girls, but no guarantees on ratios which can balloon up to 6:1 according to some reviews.
Hot Box in Northampton do a 2:1 ratio party for 2hrs for £120, but the ladies do look very MILFish to me.
The various parties in Brum seem to offer the best VFM, but I've been told they are often attended by groups of Asian youth who pass the girls on to their mates to the detriment of other guests.
I guess guys need to work out for themselves if they still want to pay the price for what's on offer at Phoenix.
