Author Topic: Phoning Escorts  (Read 3589 times)

How do you guys usually approach phoning an escort. Opening lines so to speak. I've never been nervous when going to punt with them or any trouble speaking with them as I have great social skills, however over the phone with people I don't know it just feels awkward, too different from being face to face.

I don't really like phoning people under any circumstances, not sure what it is I just don't like talking on the phone or calling people up.  Phoning an escort I'm more nervous even than I normally am when having to make a phone call, though in a way there's kind of a buzz to it.

I don't have any particular trick to it.  I just call up, say 'Hello, is this [whatever their profile says]?' and then ask if they're working today or whenever I'm wanting to book.  My tastes are fairly vanilla so I've never got into negotiating what services they offer.  They know why you're phoning up.

I'm pretty much the same way Jay0707! Great in person, but scared witless at the idea of phoning them!

I haven't been on many punts and they've all been quite happy to arrange through AW email and text messaging on the day. The idea of phoning one up to negotiate/arrange does seem pretty daunting - which makes no sense because in this kind of hobby, you'd think it would be more daunting face to face. I'm sure Domino131 has hit it on the head though, at the end of the day, it's a simple business call like you were calling a hotel to make a reservation.   :)

I always ring WGs to make my enquiries and bookings. What i require is confirmation the services advertised that i want are actually on offer at the price given with no unadvertised extras. I need to know the WGs location and if her pictures look like her now, knowing some WGs use pictures years old.

If i pick up any hint of a bad attitude or a monotone reply thats my interest over because this is when a WG should be trying to impress me to get my business, if they cant manage my enquiry how bad could they be in person. If all goes well i will book and confirm before leaving my place for the WGs, if i dont get this confirmation the punt is off and i will go to my plan B instead. Then before i hand my money over i will seek confirmation again that what i want is on offer at the agreed price. If it isnt it will then be because the WG is a liar. I do this politely but clearly with no room for mis-communication, in my view its essential to be crystal clear.

I understand people are all different but I am not sure why people would get nervous or tongue tied when calling a prossie.

However for those that do. Why not ask the Wife/Mother/Sister to pretend to be a prossie on the phone. Then you can practice with them so you wont feel tongue tied.....

One of the many things I've learned in punting is that a couple of minutes hearing a voice is worth a hundred emails and texts. Of course it's not always infallible but you can pick up so many vibes.

The problem I have found in recent years though is there are so many with foreign accents it's not so easy to detect nuances. Foe example sometimes it might be a guide to their intelligence with British girls, you can't really pick this up with foreigners. However it's still possible to detect enthusiasm, and that is something many of the EE girls answering phones often don't suggest.

My biggest disaster from not hearing a voice initially was Mercedes in Derby. We had exchanged a series of texts and maybe even emails as I had booked a couple of days in advance, and she seemed articulate and intelligent with no spelling errors or text speak, and no bollocks such as 'hun.'
However when I called her just as I was about to get out of the car she sounded like a sixty year old rather than a twenty odd year old   :scare:.  As I was already there after a lengthy journey without a plan B, like an idiot I went ahead with it. Although she was actually young (she must have smoked a lot of fags!) the experience was awful and if I'd have heard her raspy voice earlier I wouldn't have bothered.

Had a very similar experience recently in Cardiff with cockmad - seen her twice before in Cardiff bay. She then dropped off the radar then reappeared with a new profile on the outskirts of the city. She is a renowned BJ queen. After exchanging a few emails via AW and texts I rocked up at her gaff. She phoned me to give me directions to her flat and she stopped me dead in my tracks. She sounded like Mel B with a very sore throat.

I thought wtf has happened to you? I did think about walking but I was almost at the door. She looked the same but sounded like she's got a 100 a day habit.  It did however put me off and I won't be going back. Did make me realise how important a phonecall is even with girls you've seen before. If I had spoken to her before I left my gaff I would have cancelled.

I hate phoning escorts, but I have no problems talking with them face to face.

Offline jay0707

It's not just escorts, phoning my bank etc, it literally is just introducing myself or making an enquiry when I phone. Whereas if they phoned me I find it easier to answer them, and then ask questions. But in person I can work either way as and generally said to be articulate and driven by previous employers. I just don't get it.

I think a big thing with the escorts is that I like visiting eastern Europeans and always worry the language barrier or their little English will send my head west on the phone, because let's be honest it's harder to understand over the phone than in person.

I used to get nervous about being over heard and still get a small adrenaline rush but so many phone numbers on AW profiles have noone answering them phoning WGs now is fine because I just tell myself noone will probably answer, and whe they do I'm pleasantly surprised.  I never leave voicemail messages but I should probably start.

I was trying to book a £200 out call the other day at my flat.  After a lot of blunt texts and a message on AW the WG or weird co-op/agency contact wouldn't let me phone her, so I just said I wasn't comfortable booking her based only on text messages and some nice pictures on the internet.  I still can't believe they get loads of time wasting phone wankers, and that they passed that chance up (maybe they're EE) but with an unhelpful attitude like that it wasn't looking like it would be an amazing punt anyway.  Luckily the next day I booked Sophie for September  :rolleyes:.

Indeed, i wouldnt punt with an Indie without having spoken to her first, i look for a friendly not unfriendly or monotone response. However, sometimes it isnt actually the WG i speak to but one of her WG colleagues pretending to be her as she cant speak the lingo well enough.

With brothels its the receptionist or pimp i get to usually speak to and most of these people are liars, very unhelpful and/or as thick as two short planks. Again having this forum and knowing some other punters helps as i can ask other experiences of them. Or as i dont mind doing sometimes take a total punt ready to walk if it goes tits up.

Erm ... not being funny but how many guys Wives/Mothers/Sisters would do this for them? You must be a lot more relaxed with your family than I am with mine!

I tend to just ask 'are you working today ... what times are you available ... do you definitely offer ...'

I agree with the comments about voices though. They can be misleading, although I suppose they are better than texts or e-mails

Also, does it piss you off if a girl hangs up on you or gets angry when you're inquiring about confirming services they offer. I know that lots of them don't want to (as they put it) give 'free phone sex' but confirmation shouldn't be a problem I think

Absolutely agree with both smiths and NIK.  Fortunately I've got no problem speaking to people I don't know on the phone but I fully understand how many punters would get nervous about this.  Believe me though, you can pick up so much from actually speaking to the girl on the phone before you go and see her.

Doesn't have to be your own family. The in-laws might be a better choice.

Note to other punters: if you do decide to practise with a family member then you should prepare for the outside chance that her reply will include the phrase, "Hardsports are £50 extra."

Yes, breakfast with the family can be boring if the conversation is always the same.

Glad to know I am not the only one who struggles on the phone. I hate it in general life as well , as other posters have said no problem with nerves on a punt apart from the odd butterfly just before the door opens. I tend to use emails whenever possible.

I'm reasonably happy to text, but prefer to call. I just keep it brief and relaxed, check times and services, ask her to text me the address and say cheerio.

Calling is often more useful than text as you get a little more of a feel for the girl.

I quite often ring from work when there are other people within earshot (work in an open-plan office).  I'll just say, "Hello, can I make an appointment please?".  My colleagues might think I'm booking a dental or doctors appointment (and would then not ask me about it since going into details about someone's visit to the doctors would just cause embarrassment for everyone).

Now tempted by a couple of WGs who only operate by text, one has had a good review by a punter i trust and he also saw the second WG in the same premises and said she looked good. So i am considering one or both of them.

Agree with Smiths and Nik.

I got really nervous phoning prossies in the early days, perhaps put off by a series of miserable and sometimes argumentative ones picked from the back end of the local paper or worse, their OH / pimp saying 'nah she ain't working tonight'. Eventually I had the thought 'if she's like that on the phone what the hell will she be like in person' and realised that phoning is the best way of telling if the prossie will be a wasted journey.

Now I don't get nervous, more apprehensive of an EE accent and an awkward conversation in broken English after which I'm none the wiser. Some EE girls have sounded quite bad on the phone but turned out to be great punts and I've come to the conclusion that they probably dread the phone ringing as they have to deal with things in a second language, worse for them than it is for the punter.

Of course if the phone goes dead and a text message follows along the lines of txt me bby the warning bells should start.
