Yes, I've read that Elizabethan brothels were associated with theatres - who knows, maybe Our Will had a stake in them the same way he did in the business interests of the theatre.
The theatricals you get from some women faking orgasm it wouldn't surprise me if they were members of Equity.

I am bad at the timing but in the early 1970s I was visiting Cynthia Payne who was working under a 'trading name' as an Indie in Hallam Street near Great Portland Street in central London, and by the middle of the decade she was having regular parties in Streatham, payment on entry for a 'luncheon voucher' as a ticket, you could buy one or two, I bought two. There were also bunk-up nights as she called them when some of her young ladies from out of town were available for an hour or two the evening before the main event for regulars from her own trading.

There would be queues on the stairs for the bedrooms, I once took a lady to the bathroom as were in a hurry, usually you went with one at a time but I had my first duos on the bunk-up nights and my first two in one afternoon next day with an interval. I think everything was covered and I simply do not remember if snogging was allowed.

This was also the era for me of the contact magazines where small photos in little magazines with box numbers were all one could see with a short description. Letters were written, lots of dosh was wasted on stamped addressed return envelopes. I uses Able Labels (Northampton, still a good company) for the formality which made the reply look like a business letter. I recall it was the first time I went down on a lady and licked her, she told me what to do and I have been happy with my mouth full ever since. It was these contacts with indies and milfs as they are now known, in their own suburban and provincial homes, which were most satisfying as they were basically amateurs enjoying themselves and earning at the same time. They were often very good lookers.

Before then it was streetwalkers and walkups and then parlours and some of them were indeed in a parlous state. My first ever was a soho walk up. And borrowing father's car to 'go out' and little did he know.

My first owo was in California, without asking for it, on a work visit in about 1991. It was a great sensation.

enough nostalgia, back to Plan A for this week.

Shakespeare is a phallic name, like wagstaffe, and thatched cottage was slang for a girls bush. In the seventies in Danube st, famous Edinburgh brothel, the girls usually single mothers from Dalkeith, didn't even get undressed completely, oral sex consisted of blowing at your cock, so my schoolmates told me, a shag cost 3 pounds, being beaten or dealing it out, was a pound a stroke, we got plenty of that for nothing at school. The standards of looks has gone up immensely in the last 20 years, service is on the whole much much better, for punters the common market and end of borders has been fine, though the man most responsible for foreign prossies is the boss of Ryan Air

When I started punting, late 80's/ early 90's there was no GFE, and OWO was a rare event. All business was done on the streets of Norwich, with the odd exception of phoning a number left in a call box, although this was a last resort late at night. Back then there were up to 20-25 girls working the streets. The phoning a number was always a risky business, taking a chance on turning up at the address hoping the WG was fit and wasn't some junkie den.

 Also there was never a time limit, it was either driving to a quiet lane and business took place, or back to their place. I can only recall the odd girl asking if I was anywhere near coming, which to me was the worst thing to say as it put me off. £30 average for bj and fuck in several positions was the going rate.

In the 1980's there were booklets you could buy in dodgy newsagents and the like, with names such as "Phoenix". They contained photos of women, general descriptions of the services they offered, and a phone number. A low tech. version of Adultwork, in fact. And none of the photos were retouched. What you saw was what you got (assuming you wanted it).
As for OWO. It was part of the standard service in Birmingham and Manchester in those days. But not, if I recall correctly, in London.  GFE was available, but usually only if the woman took a fancy to you. As they did occasionally in my younger days. Normally meant I fancied them too. So if you were lucky it could turn into a great punt. All rather amateurish and charming looking back on it.

I mentioned this in my reminiscence and now recall the name of the mag, it was Rendezvous, but I am sure it was already there in the late 1970s. Anyhow HERE IT  IS

not updated since summer 2009 but still worth a look for the memories

Getting back to Gropecunt Lane, Newcastle had one which then changed it's name to Grapecuntlane (note how grope was the offensive word  :D ), that then when through a few more changes before settling on Love Lane.

Which is now situated between behind the law court on the quayside to the Travellodge, funny enough my first punt in Newcastle was in a room in that Travellodge.

Here's a question:

I remember watching a C4 TV documentary a while again about an escort called Juicy Lucy, or Luscious Linda - one of those. A late-thirties, married, ex-marketing manager who jacked in the daily grind of 9-5 office work and together with her partner started arranging meets (gang bangs?) in various hotels up and down the country. Think she always worked with another girl who went by the catchy name of Bad Bitch UK. Did anyone have the pleasure of attending one of these parties back in the day?
