What is a pimp in the true sense?
Someone who forces a Girl to work against her will.
Someone who just takes all her money.
Think the whole forum agrees those people are bad news.
However most WGs need the following to enable them to work.
A place to work.
May be someone to drive them.
Someone to look after them if there is a problem with a client.
Someone to help with their profile if the English is bad,
Someone to take calls if there English is bad.
Where is the line between help and been pimped.
A pimp is a person, man or woman who either takes with force, OR takes with agreement all or some of the money WGs make from punting.
Those that use force are low life filth who i hope get done by the police. Those where the WG agrees to give them an agreed cut of her fees might be low life filth, and will be to some punters dependent on their opinion of course. A WG might not be able to afford premises to work from as her own arent suitable, for example she lives with her parents or has other family living in them. So she might decide working at say a Parlour is the best way to start and either save money until she can afford her own place and go Indie, or she finds she likes just having to turn up on time with the punters and premises laid on. Many Agencies dont provide the WGs premises which legally is the smart thing to do, but they still get the same or a higher cut of the WGs fees.
The line is does the person get money for helping, or perhaps sex in exchange, or do they do it as they are friends for nothing, but to help.
With A/W now is the time a pimp is needed the least than ever for some WGs who can speak English or have real friends who can help them set their profile up and/or answer their phones for them. Some though are daunted by working as an Indie and worried about not getting any punters so view working at a known busy in their own experience Parlour or Agency as their best option. I cant see that changing, controlling for gain and/or running a brothel are already against the law obviously but brothels and thus controlling for gain are tolerated in many areas, some brothels being operating for years.
Would punters prices be less if there werent pimps, yes possibly, reputable by credible punters Agencies in London at least ensure prices are kept at £150 an hour or more often, many Parlours charge more than Indies in the same area.
