I've been lurking recently and have been reading a little. 'Punting' as a phrase didn't exist until a week ago, nor OWO, CIM, RB, RO but I'm picking up bits here and there. I have also notice a level of disdain for 1st post/new topics
I apologise for doing so.
I was considering lurking more but I figured asking questions might be a better way. Sorry for any perceived laziness - I did a search on others' first times and that mostly answered all my questions but I've still a few thoughts.
Should I do this? I'm not really feeling like I'm tarnishing myself with a brush in the slightest but it's not quite the same process as getting new wheels for a car.
"It's my first time with a WG" - Should you tell them that it's your first time punting? I basically don't want to be taken advantage of and if anything, want to be taken care of. This doesn't seem to be a big thing unless you're with a bad WG. It's also fine to say that you want the WG to take the lead which I think is maybe apt.
Time - I'm imagining that you should start out with a short session rather than a long one just in case things don't go to well to begin with, to get used to the idea and so that you don't spend unnecessary cash for no reason. I've read one converse to this where the poster said that for another £40 you can basically have double the time to recover/do more/fuck up if you have to.
Time management - There's also things that the WG can do like say "I am going to change into something sexy" to run down your time - I'm really not wanting to be rushed out but this isn't really something you can request is it?
Location - I've read that you should do things like scout out the locations (Google maps etc) and make sure you know where you're going to save time/not get lost.
What's on offer - How to go about asking what's on offer so you don't miss out on OWO, FK, only get to pop once just because you didn't ask.
It seems the best advice is be clean, polite and having some chewing gum
Any comments welcome. I'm somewhat nervous as to what might happen in future. 'An expensive hobby' some have called it
