Author Topic: Punting before the internet & mobiles  (Read 1750 times)

Thinking back to my early days of punting before the internet and mobile phones, the ways and means we used to get a punt. A card in a phone box, the personals local rag, contact mags whatever. I used to be a service driver for Nation Express doing the Brighton run every weekend. With time to kill in Brighton before the return journey, got one of my best punts via Fridayads. If I remember rightly, mobile phones were new, but internet had not got off the ground then. Made her my monthly treat!! too expensive for weekly on coach drivers wages.

So guys, how did you go about punting before the wonders of technology?

Classified adds in the Daily Sport. Read the description, phone the number and turn up with everything crossed that a complete horror wouldn't answer the door!

+1 but the local newspaper not the Daily Sport.  Totall random - the true definition of a "punt" - absolutely no picture, very limited description as they paid by the word to advertise.  In hindsight I actually was quite lucky the few times I had to to do things the old fashioned way.  I do sometimes have to chuckle at the guys here bitching about how "awful" AW is!  :sarcastic:

Local rags where I was were crap, piss poor selection and parlors were a mixed bag that I avoided most of the time. That left the streets and when you've street punted AW for all its failings seems very attractive.

Some local papers used to carry adds like the sunday sport, until they realized, what the girls were offering

+1. Edinburgh, around 2000 I'd say. Horror show. Took me 14 years to punt again!!

I remember punting in the 90's often just going to the phone box with a few numbers scribbled down from nottingham evening post. It was a real lottery - you never knew what you were likely to find at the other end. Thinking back I punted in some terrible shit holes with girls I would never have given a second look to in a club.

Late 80s and 90s London Massage parlours for me. Girls would line up and you take your pick. Didn't do it often but some of the girls were pretty nice

Mainly adverts in the East London Advertiser, you were punting blind ----------------------- but you still are now with many of the headless photos on Adultwork.

The internet should have put an end to punting blind ---------------- it hasn't.      :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:

It started with Classified section of The South Wales Echo in the late 80s for me, always chancy on what they would look like, I learnt early to add a few years and at least one dress size to their description over the phone , I did walk on a few occasions.

Then moved on to parlours and enjoyed seeing the line up, I learnt there to listen to their names when they introduced themselves and repeat them back. When I had chosen and was taken to the room to to prepare myself I would write down the names of the ones I fancied and then ring before going if I could find bloody phone box working and change to use it. It is so much easier now.

I then started travelling upto the Midlands to work and discovered Jezebal Magazine! Pictures and numbers a revelation.

I can't remember her name but use to visit a woman just off the Stourbridge Road out of Lye who I contacted through Jezabel she worked out of a maisonette in Pebble Close. Many a time I would travel back to Cardiff with a smug grin having just visited her.

contact mags like "northern link up" and "manchester scene", in my early days they did not have phone numbers so you had to write sending a stamped self addressed envelope

Ah, but Jimmy, how would some of these "courtesans" work if we knew what they looked like before we turned up?

There is still a significant percentage of the WG population who rely on the little head overruling the big one.

I agree and years ago I was guilty of just that.     :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:

I turned up once at a flat to find it was a filthy squat and the girl was a skinny little slapper ----------- I didn't walk.    :thumbsdown:

I take it you  weren't a fan of the Edinburgh saunas.. back in 2000 London Street Sauna was at its absolute peak..with not a Romanian in sight...100% Scottish workforce ranging from the good to the sensational.

Before tinterweb I used daily sport and local paper ads, there was good and bad, massage parlours were best way before web, now always use indies from aw

Offline SirFrank

Knocking shops and South Wales echo / free ads. Fuck me it was hard work. I remember one advert for a sexy MILF - phoned and turned up to find the door opened by Aunt Bessie. She had a face only a mother could love.  First time I ever walked

Happened to pass a massage parlour in E17 when visiting the area with family, aged about 20. Location logged in brain, checked it out at a later date for first  punt.  Mummy n daddy never found out needless to say!
Next was a parlour in E15 as seen in a porn mag, better shags there, it's a diffferent and worse place now.

Way before my punting exploits, I couldn't even imagine how difficult it was in those days to set up a punt, Based on that I  :hi: to all from that generation.

Very similar to trying to find a hidden gem on Adultwork.     :hi:

Offline Andrew Sanderson

Yep, it was hit and miss then and its hit and miss now.
The diference is the WG lies and half truths are on the web and not in phone boxes and mags.

I agree. I think it's worse now, or has become in the past couple of years.

Finding those 23 punts is the tricky part IMO.

            Maybe only punts with girls with a lot of good reviews on here ? But yes i wish i could get my hit rate up to 22/23 or even 50/50 .

            As for OP before the net it was local newspaper , even more hit or miss then AW but i did learn to walk away at this time and still do.

I must be doing something right as I'm up in that neighbourhood of success rates - I do look for specific things in a profile so even before I was on UKP three out of my first four punts were good.  Then I got a Romanian b&s - despite there being good AW feedback, so I went searching to see if there was a better source for punting intel and came here. 

My success rate since has been outstanding.  Any hint of negative/neutral feedback here and a WG is off my hotlist, and apart from one recent occasion I literally don't bother meeting someone if there's no feedback here at all. 

All I can say is - do lots of research before taking a punt!  Ultimately I am lucky enough to work from home and have lots of quiet time to do the research, appreciate many people don't have the hours to spend that I do - but it does pay off.
