I'd have thought the opposite: escorts would want to get their advertising out as wide as possible. 1 extra booking via a site other than AW is worth the time invested in setting up a profile and uploading a picture or two.
WGs get paid for being fucked not for doing website admin - it all takes time and effort and costs money so it suits them if there's only one serious game in town. If there was a serious contender to AW - ie something with equivalent features/functionality it would double their admin time - pics/content/txt to update/upoad to both sites. If there were a bunch of similar sites, the effort/time/cost all goes up.

I want a website that makes it easier to find a WG when and where I want at a price I'm willing to pay.  AW is good as far as it goes, but most of the power is with the WGs.  I would appreciate others' thoughts on this. Thx

Try PROSSI E-BAY   :hi:

this looks like a multi purpose site like Viva Street or the other one with the forgettable name - I found a typist in the next street .... oops I forgot it, the only 3 ladies I looked at on Backpage looked as if they were the same ones I had rejected also on AW.

Gumtree, that was the one

I’m struggling to see just exactly which side of the fence you’re on. In the space of two posts you go from agreeing that Adultwork’s shite and needs some competition, to saying WGs wouldn’t use because they should be fucking instead of filling their profile on another website.

It's not rocket science - Adultwork is shite because there is no competition, and there is no competition because it would have to be at least as good - if not better - from day 1 to entice WG's off their backs to use it as well as / instead of AW. Do try to keep up.

I've noticed it being pretty prominent on social media, namely Twitter and not heard it mentioned before so http://justadults.co.uk/ seems to be making a bit of progress but hard to tell if it will ever catch up.
As a lot have said, everything is just so far off aw. A shame as a lot of others look easier to use.

I came across this direct competitor to AW which is looking promising.

[Removed by admin]

Loads of sites just download the AW content which is annoying, especially when they have historic girls that disappeared years ago.

Is it just me or are the AW servers creaking at the seams again, a couple of years ago it was almost unusably slow then they upgraded the servers.  Recently I'm getting long delays again and even the odd 500 server error.

One major thing missing from AW is whether the location is a parlour or not.  I don't do parlours, I prefer to blissfully believe that the girl hasn't had another punter in the previous 10 years.

Cant see how you can say that site is a potential / promising competitor. First there is no proximity search which is a major omission - utterly useless for me to search by county as I'm in Surrey but punt in London, Middx, Sussex and Hampshire.
Secondly at least 6/10 of the ladies I saw were barebackers!  :vomit:

Its bloody awful.  Not only did they steal everyones profiles to pad their site out they constantly spammed everyone with texts including punters and no one knows how they got the punters numbers but they managed too.
Not the sort of text you want to open when sat with a family member.
If you dared to ask them to stop sending texts you ended up with streams of abuse and threats via call, voicemail when you stopped answering and by text.

what a wonderful site, run by criminals by any chance?

AW is *really* fucking good. It's a massive directory of countless WGs openly stating their services and prices with an punter feedback system. Compare it to the pre-aw world and it's like fucking Christmas every day.

It's not completely perfect of course, and you should back it up with proper research where possible, but it's a truly excellent tool for both punters and prossies. Aside from a few tweaks, the main problems are to do with users (misrepresented WGs, bollocks feedback) which are pretty hard to tackle on such a huge scale.

+1 Sadly it's the same problem on many sites - dating sites have the exact same issues with scammers setting up fake profiles in hopes of conning unsuspecting victims.

I was originally punting out of the back of the classified ads in the local rag which really was a punt - AW on it's own is a great improvement, but combined with UKP it really is Christmas every day for me!  :yahoo:

All in all, Adultwork is functionally rubbish for the size of company and how long it has been in existence, they need a serious competitor to come and boot them up their backside.  Adultwork is making serious profits with extremely little outlay in comparison.

Likewise I found a higher proportion of barebackers on auto-censored, but I also found a lower count of fake accounts - swings and roundabouts, at least bb is a bit more open so we have a true choice.

Fake accounts are relatively easy to spot/avoid thanks to UKP so I can live with the other shortcomings.

Functionally could not see a single advantage to the site you pointed out. The limited geographical search alone makes it unusable for me.

Right now the likely reason that site doesn't have fake/scam profiles is due to it's lack of popularity. If it started to challenge AW the fakers would be straight on the bandwagon sadly.

Most larger cities and areas have their own forum style sites that can give decent info. The one that I use has a lot of girls on it who aren't on AW, parlour girls who don't have AW profiles pop up regularly too. You get a chance to chat to the girls via PM or on topics and there's a chat room too. It works for me. I've seen a few girls from it, once you get to know them they offer a bit of discount too.

There's one girl I see who works at a parlour, we chat for a few days before I punt and I get a far better service than Joe Public.

Best possible tweak would be to search by nationality, or even better, exclude by nationalty - but the lying Sergei cunts would get round that by saying their girls are all from Italy.

Really? That's the first I've heard of any sites like that, and I'd have thought the members on here, who seem pretty knowledgeable, might have mentioned such things.

I'd certainly be interested if there was one for Bristol or Bath, my nearest cities.

if thats the case,  is there a link for london/ home counties forums.

Offline Tjkooker

There are forums out there for certain city's. Usually invite only and run very much on the owners rules. I was a member of one. Left after some issues in my own life. Decided not to go back as it was a bit too insular for me. Was never invited back anyway. I reckon I wasn't fluffy enough for them.
Banning reason: Outing and trolling a punter because he posted a negative about his favourite prossie. White-knight fluffy that pretends otherwise.

Exclude by nationality would be good, but they are possibly worried about being prejudiced. It is something you can do as a private preference but dodgier as policy (they already have special rules in place for certain countries).

What I do in case anyone finds the idea helpful (or can suggest others) is use saved searches. My first call will be a search with very specific, saved parameters, English first language, age range and so on. Then I have two broader saved searches in case the more specific one doesn't yield a result. That way, it is only three clicks. Better than keying it in from scratch every time.

However, I suspect that whatever method you use for searching it will miss a few. I can do a global search (no restrictions other than, say, age and area) and then find a profile mentioned on here that fits the parameters but didn't show up in the search. I also (on and off, depending whether it suits me) will have a free email alert set up. Most of them I can delete without checking based on a thoroughly stupid profile name, but it is a way of covering maximum bases with minimum effort, hence efficiency (I hope!)

What Adultwork mostly doesn't list is sauna girls (parlours) although a few crop up. Fortunately UKP does (and occasionally the unusually sane poster on ISG will point a few out usefully as well).  Girls with dusty phones of course need to advertise everywhere that allows them to or does so at a cost-effective price. Business like any other.

When travelling abroad, AW 'supplements' are necessary! One or two (like Vivastreet) offer the occasional promising UK lead too, but there is usually so little information on the ads.

Other sites possibly of note: craigslist, vivastreet, backpage, gpguia, isg & usg, rubmaps, and then dozens that are more location-specific.
