Thats knowalls who actually punt with cheaper WGs so know what they are talking about unlike yourself.
I'm always on the lookout for the mythical £100 (or less!) punt that so many - yourself included - are always talking about. Every now and then I go through someone's reviews to see if they are on to something.
Firstly - as I've done this elsewhere and offended a punter - that really is not the point of the exercise - I am in no way looking to criticise a fellow punter especially one who contributes so much to this forum. But just to point out that we do all have different tastes, not just in services, but in looks / age etc - and even for an old hand like yourself it does genuinely seem like you don't exactly have a glut of high quality punts at £100ph.
Tonight I didn't have much time so only went through the last 1 page of your reviews - 25 punts.
Of the 14 positives 6 were £120ph or more. Some as high as £150ph. Even some that were £100ph or less offered services that I always go for like CIM and rimming at an extra fee taking them up to £120ph or more.
1 profile no longer active
1 you labelled "nearly neutral"
1 to me had quite limited services
2 aged over 40 (definitely no good for me - have had one ok punt over 40 but to me that's not the point of punting as I'm over 40 myself and spent the last 6 years married to a 40 year old)
3 definitely not very attractive to me (you labelled them yourself as 1) "hard look...attractive enough" and 2) "isn't a stunner but I fancied her enough to stay" and 3) one with a verification pic that I thought was as plain as you can get that you found "attractive enough". Clearly beauty is in the eye of the beholder we all have our taste but definitely these were big no's for me and a number of punters have criticised me for not being very discerning about looks!
So that left 2 possibles / borderline. 2 * 30 year olds - generally still a bit older than I prefer - 1 with stretchmarks (not a dealbreaker) and 1 offering no DFK and working out of a brothel renowned for profile swapping (not promising from a reliability perspective)
I also had 2 that I had already hot listed having read your reviews already - thank you very much.
Sensual Brigit and English Rose Paris who is currently touring Kensington - she is therefore currently local but typically I am still skint til payday so will likely miss her. However even if I had £150ph to burn - with no CIM and no rimming I would likely end up weighing it up and going elsewhere as I know I can get those services reliably for that kind of money (and A levels which is another particular like of mine).
Sensual Brigit is the only £100ph option and that's when you include CIM and rimming - so she is most definitely a bargain and if she's still around next time I'm up that way I will definitely say hello!
Unfortunately you are the other side of town to me and maybe the market genuinely is a bit different over there. I am originally from Tottenham, lived in Walthamstow 10 years, went to school in Green Lanes, had mates Turnpike Lane, Manor House etc so I know some of your stomping grounds quite well and definitely some of it is a bit less well off than where I punt around Surrey / SW London. Where I am it does seem that £150ph is the benchmark for a decent punt. I have had one or two "ok" punts for less but from WG's who have either since put their prices up, or have proven not reliably good enough to go back to again.
So although I totally agree there is no direct correlation between "price and quality" I continue to see that the specific "qualities" I look for in a WG don't seem to be available much below a certain price. No doubt the price I pay for where I live and the specific traits I'm after.
