Author Topic: %age of signed up AdultWork punters who are also signed up UKP members?  (Read 1277 times)

password02

Was thinking this other day - The numbers of punters in percentage terms who are AW members and use AW girls in most cases who are also signed up members of UKP?

Do you think it is double figures? or would it be less than 5%

Any educated mathematicians here on UKP?

Quite difficult to determine I'd say as you'd need to know how many members on AW are seeking services which I'm unable to determine. Also need to know how many of the 14910 members on here are punters. That said I'd expect 90% of the punters on here use AW. If the numbers were available and any assumptions reasonable it would be possible to estimate. Personally I think the % would be quite low as I would imagine many more UK punters are members of AW than are members on here.

Yes agree - difficult but my best guess would be less than 5% of AW punters would also be UKP members who actually punt, as you said nearly 15,000 UKP members signed up but how many actually punt? difficult to say - if you take a guess and say 50& of UKP also punt then approx 7,500 UKP members who actually punt on AW - take that figure and look at the AW numbers and it is mind boggling

Very hard to say apart from a wild guess,  my gut would say between 5 and 10 percent.  However the number of lurkers who use reviews and UKP as part of pre punt due diligence process may well be much higher.

Yes, and these lurkers give nothing back to the forum, a bit like drinking in a pub and not putting in the whip.   :bomb:

Probably a lot more use this site as a guest when researching SPs and never bother to register? I'm very much a part time punter (if that's the phrase?) only had 3 in a year, 2 of whom are well known on here.

I think and I maybe wrong, lurkers can still use the UKP search facilities when looking for information. I  believe I did before joining.

I think it's higher, but it's impossible to put a figure on it.

If they're using AW they're also using the internet (no flies on me) so, as UKP rules the roost in punting terms, they must be aware of it.

How many sign up? A good number, I'd say, as they're likely to already have a punting email or couldn't care less anyway.

How many go on to post? Not as many as I'd like, but there are no easy answers to improving that.

when you join AW do you have to submit a phone number ?

No or at least not a real phone number,  email address is the only thing required I believe and a punting name.

Cheers mate. Was just reading that guide on here and thought thats what it said.

Punting phones well hidden and I dont know the number. :D

One of the advantages of auto-censored over here in terms of recruiting is that so many agencies, parlours, girls etc link to their reviews. That makes new punters aware of them. I doubt UKP reviews will get linked to nearly as enthusiastically cos they are a bit more honest and blunt, and even iff they are all fluffy somebody usually sets it straight. Bottom line is ultimately there are less routes for punters finding us, especially casual ones.

As for lurking here, not sure how many do but if you do research on girls you will keep bumping into this place and eventually you will sign up.

Despite punting for a while now and being relatively internet savvy, I only discovered this place fairly recently. I reckon a lot of AW users are totally unaware of its existence.

No one however educated knows the answer to this as the number of punters or WGs isnt known. My GUESS is its between 5-10% at the very most, but ever increasing over time.

I did some counting in the members list and about 60% of all UKP members have 0 posts while another 15-20% has less than 10 posts. I don't know whether they punt or how often they punt but if they do punt and are aware of UKP it means that they are also aware about Adultwork. I am saying this because many newbies in punting are not aware about Adultwork so I would guess that those who do use Adultwork are not novice in punting – and those who are novice and use AW then perhaps they have found UKpunting FIRST. Given that many may use the site as guests and have never signed up I would say that 25% of Adultwork UK service seekers are aware about UKPunting as a resource of reviews. I do believe that in any given day about 50-60% percent of men who meet WGs are newbies (0-3 punts experience) so the percentage of all punters in UK who are aware of UKpunting is most probably below 10%. However given the fact that many people that are aware of UKPunting (including everyone -even those who have never signed up) are not active punters anymore (either quitted or just tried it once or twice) I will say that from the total amount of active punters the percentage of “UKPers” is just 5%.

I am sure that some people have found the site from threads like the Suspected Adultwork scams (when typing the escort phone), the list of pornstars (that now ranks 5th in Google search when you type “Pornstar escorts”), the reviews (by typing the escort name or phone on Google -that is why you should give useful titles, links, phones, etc) and when Adultwork fails.

basically I have AW account but decided to join in this site when a friend of mine recommended me.

Yep, I'd go with this too. Any internet trawl for escorts will quickly lead you to AW, you can hardly avoid it. But it took me a while longer to find this site and stumbled across it by accident.

I am a relative punting newbie, I signed up to AW first, not sure how I first found out about it, general internet search I think.

I found out about auto-censored through reading "capital punter blog", then found out about here through a thread on there on other punting sites and thought I'd join after lurking a while  :thumbsup:

No you don't however beware if you make a booking via AW to give/receive feedback you cannot submit the request until you enter a number to enable to the WG to ring to discus and this is then saved in your details so you would need to go into your details to delete it every time, I have only rang or emailed to arrange then put the booking request through once confirmed which seems to be more popular as not all WG use the system properly I think and it sends them appointments when they haven't said they are available.

Nothing but I don't keep it on my person.

Offline CBPaul

Interesting question. Without knowing how many use AW to arrange punts it's wild guess time, I'd say in the region of 10 % (plus or minus quite a lot  :D). I agree that loads of lurkers and guests are using UKP to line up the prossies they want to visit and Jason's post makes for very interesting reading. About 20% of UKP members having more than 10 posts is a bit higher than my guess.

Yes, and these lurkers give nothing back to the forum, a bit like drinking in a pub and not putting in the whip.   :bomb:

I'm with you on that Jimmy. With the negative experiences I've reported back on it's galling to think that some lurker may be reading thinking 'yeah, had the same experience myself last week'. Equally when we are discussing a certain prossie, looking for fb, would it be so hard to give a quick reply if someone had experience.

Then again I suspect a fair number are visiting the bargain basement or obvious scam type and know they risk getting a slating on here. Punters must be visiting these prossies - cheap, shite profile full of things they won't actually do, crap service..... BUT pictures of gorgeous 20 somethings causing the dick to lead the way.
