Let me preface this review by stating two important things:
i.) I have agonised for two weeks over whether or not to make my experience public.
ii.) I sought the advice of some more established and experienced members of this board before deciding to write this review.
A little background:
Since I was a student, the only person I have shared this ‘hobby’ with is one of my closest friends – a Swiss guy I have known for more than twenty years. As undergrads we used to take the coach down to London on Friday nights to meet girls from now-defunct agencies like Valentines, Academy Girls, Scandal Babes, Bentleys and latterly Abra Girls.
So after he sent me a lengthy email writing about a girl he had met whilst in London this Summer, I decided I would also like to meet Platinum Cindy. After Googling her, I discovered she was only available through Adultwork only proceeded to join in an effort to contact her and arrange a meeting.
Perhaps that was mistake number one. I should have simply asked my friend for her number or to recommend me to her. But that would be a bit odd I think: ‘my friend would like to fuck you too.’
I sent a lengthy and very detailed email to Cindy in which I introduced myself, told her who I was, who had recommended her to me – and why I would like to meet her (the fact she’s half-Russian according to her profile).
She replied with the following:
Hiya XXX, wow you sound very interesting and definitely well travelled
Sadly, somebody has already booked the last slot on Wednesday October 1st at 4.30pm. So hopefully another day will suits us although I do not usually see people with 0 feedback for my safety.
Out of interest, may I ask who recommended me to you?
I told her my friends name (he has a very unusual name), and provided further personal information about myself to set her mind at ease.
Cindy then replied:
Hiya XXX, what I find quite strange is a lot of 'friends' recommend me to each other but really most of those are just through a reviewing site related to Adultwork. Recently I've had people mentioning they went to college with me, talking about personal stuff about me and even talking about what car I drive! A lot of men invade my privacy and that's why I am conscious about meeting a complete stranger (in this case 0 feedback).
I don't know anyone by the name XXX so that's why I didn't respond. My main worry isn't about a guy NOT turning up, that just means I get a longer break I just don't want to meet somebody that either knows me or worse. How about you send me your number and possibly send me a few photos?
...How come you want to meet me so bad anyway?
Fair point. She doesn’t know me from Adam and I could be the guy she’s worried might be stalking her / trying to find out personal information about her.
I therefore suggested we stick with email and Cindy had another idea: whatsapp. I installed it and then sent her a message to say she was welcome to message me.
Cindy then wrote back:
Hiya, ahh great u have whats app. I will message you tomorrow as you might be with your family now. I am fully booked for the next two weeks so have a look at my diary on my profile and see for yourself when suits you best.
The following day she did indeed sent an sms as promised – ‘Hiya – this is Cindy’.
My reply was as follows:
‘Morning Cindy, thank you for getting in touch. I feel very privileged now! Can I add 22nd to my diary?’
Then things started to become a little odd.
Hiya, what happened to you sending me a few photos first? XX
‘You want the honest reply to that question? Here it is: .. I have a 9-year-old daughter and I would never risk her or my privacy for anything. I'm sorry if that is a poor answer. It is an honest answer.’
Cindy wrote back:
Ok sweetheart when you build up some feedback I will gladly see you. Its because you said your dear friend recommended me to you but it seemed a bit dodgy. I do take care of my safety and really don’t like seeing people with 0 feedback. Thanks for understanding.
Then a further message:
Ive told you before. Recently people are playing games with my privacy. It was only for a bit of reassurance but I understand you care about your own privacy. You’ve said you’ve seen many girls so make sure the future ones leave u some feedback.
Then a third message:
Sweetheart, please contact me when you respect my rules. Thanks.
I did wonder if she meant that message for me, so I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt.
I wrote back:
‘I’m sorry Cindy, I didn’t see that you required photographs of all new potential clients. It doesn’t say that on your profile.’
‘I’m going to trust you with pictures – I’m third from the left: <hyperlink to a picture of me with friends>’
‘Now you have my real my picture and my real name. I must be mad. Has that given you any reassurance Cindy?’
No reply. Initially I began thinking ‘this has got to be some sort of scam’. Then I really started to worry about why she wanted pictures of me.
I left it at that and moved on to do as she had suggested. I met some wonderful girls and started to build up some solid feedback.
Then at the beginning of this week I decided one last time to make contact by SMS:
I have an AW feedback of XX and have just forwarded you a message recommending you from a member of your fan club. I hope that will inspire some confidence. If you need further reassurance that I am a genuine customer, I am happy to provide you with my UKP/Reviewer name – please just ask.’
... and roughly copied the same via Adultwork as I assumed she would feel more comfortable:
I finally managed to pop my AW cherry and I hope that might just persuade you to agree to a meeting. I'll make it to XX feedbacks before then with any luck
If 2-4pm on Wednesday 12th November is possible, please let me know. If not, the same time on either Thursday or Friday would be fine.
Could I just say one final thing: if you still have your doubts and/or do not wish to meet me ever, please just let me know and I will not contact you again.
I'm trying to do this 'the right way' now - as per your rules. Hopefully you can see I'm genuine and just want to have some fun.
Each of the messages Cindy has read and ignored, so it’s clear that she values the oxygen of free publicity that this site provides as being worth very little. I have no doubt she is a good fuck and according to the reviews she is a decent and friendly girl. But given what she has done to herself, I wonder if there are other insecurity issues and whether she can be trusted with personal information.
Make of this what you will, but I’d be interested to hear if any other punters have been asked for personal information and/or photographs by this WG.
For me, her ‘service’ sucks. I did everything she asked of me – and more – and was rewarded with silence and disdain.
Caveat emptor gentlemen.
