Having read this thread constantly as it was updated, I refrained from posting until all was done.
On the one hand; well done Anth for getting it sorted and done, and glad you enjoyed it. Fair play, as others have said, for having a crack (pun intended) at her arse, even after she said she doesn't do that!
As for the overnight thing - I'm not sold on it either. This is the way I see it.
Anth paid £550 to have a girl for 12hrs. Plus the cost of the room, and food, drink etc, it's gonna be £600. That's £50 per hour. Not a bad rate. However, you take out 6hrs of those as sleep time (or down time in this case, re the bed saga) then the price doubles and you're now paying £100 per hour. That's pretty average. Take out another few hours; for arguments sake say 2, for chatting, general moaning etc, you're now paying £150 per hour. That's pretty high (at least to me anyway)
If it was me? I'd just book the girl for 6hrs; 6pm to midnight. Even at £100 per hour, that's still the same money, but the difference is at midnight, you put her in a cab, and get to ACTUALLY sleep, comfortably, in your own bed (if you had the meet at home, of course - if you had the meet at a hotel, then you get to comfortable sleep in a hotel bed. Hopefully not a busted one)
I realise we are all different and want different things from punting (apart from getting balls deep in a girl, which is a pretty common denominator amongst punters), and me personally, I'm not after the GFE. If I wanted a girlfriend, I'd get a girlfriend! What I want it to root the hell out of a girl MUCH hotter than I'd normally be able to pull, and probably younger too (one which note; Anth - 19? Fair play! I'd happily punt with an 18/19 year old, but probably only for half an hour to an hour, not an all nighter. At 31, I think, unless she's well educated and articulate, we'd very quickly run out of things to talk about). I appreciate the rest breaks and a bit of down time, and would expect it in a 6hr booking. But from that 6hr booking, I'd expect to be engaged in sexual activity, in one form or another, with her for at least 4 hrs. Which brings us back to £150 an hour again.
And while I understand, to an extent, people taking out "escorts" - maybe in the context of taking her as a date to a function or whatever for the evening, and then going back to the hotel/home, and fucking her sideways - and enjoying the chat and non-sexual side of it, it's personally not for me. And I sure as shit won't be paying the girl to sleep!
However, this wasn't my punt, it was Anth's. And so long as he thinks he had a good time, and he thinks he got VFM, and he enjoyed himself, then it was a worthwhile night for him.
