I would suggest using AW but most importantly in conjunction with UKP. That will help you find a good WG to ease you in.
If you want recommendations, the best thing to do is give detailed information about what you are after, budget, looks, kinks. No point being coy, if you find a AW prossie you are interested in post the link and ask for opinions.
Best you can do in the long term is read old threads on UKP, pretty much everything has been covered at some point.
