Never thought I'd hear myself suggesting this. For years I scoffed at friends who used to tell me punting was a waste of money and that it could be spent on much more worthwhile things, but today really hit home to me how I've changed.
It reads to me as though you're questioning whether the amount you've spent
on prossies represents value for money, rather than punting per se?
I guess your question depends on what the punters motives are in the first place? If it's the case of his wives legs being firmly closed because she's lost her sex drive or is simply being a controlling bitch, then I guess it could well deemed to be worth it! He gets his rocks off, with generally no strings. If somebody has a very high sex drive which isn't matched by his partner, the same could apply, I guess.
To some people £200 is an awful lot of money, to others, it's nothing. Is any prossie worth £200? In my opinion no, but there will always be people who earn huge amounts of money, that don't care. There will also be those on a ego trip who enjoy paying an amount they know others cannot afford. This applies with other goods and services too, so why should paying for a prossie be any different? People spend crazy amounts on shoes and clothes after all!
