Author Topic: Members who only write positive reviews.  (Read 4106 times)

Even though I'm semi-retired from punting, I still search the UKP reviews section in the fading hope of finding that golden nugget hidden under the mountain of over-priced and over-hyped manure that fills AW.... but my question is this:

Do other members ignore reviews from punters who only do positive reviews?

Surely a credible punter will have a decent mix of positive, neutral and negatives?

Are they really lucky, rich, fluffy, easily pleased or just lying to avoid embarrassment / being blacklisted?

 :hi:

Not really. I make my own mind up from reading the content of the review.

I've read some positives that if I had had the same experience it would have been neutral or negative.

I do write a lot of positive reviews but I go with - if I had a good time and didn't regret doing it it was a positive; if I enjoyed it but regretted it or services weren't as advertised it's a neutral, if I had a terrible time and felt I wasted my money or was jerked around and a confirmed booking didn't happen it's a negative.

I've seen some reviews that told me nothing useful at all - future reviews from those guys I'd ignore irrespective of how they rated the meet.

No I don't ignore their reviews, I read them and take them on their merits as I see them. It IS possible using UKP to punt with only WGs recommended by punters a reviewer finds credible which can decrease the chances of a bad punt. How you punt can make a big difference of course, for example I might fancy a punt in search of a gem which sometimes pays off but sometimes doesn't, a less risk averse punter might just stick with WGs with many reviews on here.

Some will though be what you mention, especially fluffy, lying to avoid embarrassment or the fear of being blacklisted. A punter is indeed fortunate to not have a bad punt as even with recommended WGs who have loads of good reviews things can easily go wrong, or they don't get on for whatever reason. Punting with only regulars is another way a punter might have only or mainly good punts if he is lucky.

I personally don't find fluffy reviews much use, all I want is confirmation the WG offered such and such services with a good attitude for the cost advertised with no extras, her description, age and dress size along with location area wise. These long and winding reviews are far far too long for me, but they aren't for some so if some others find them helpful that's good.

I punt as anonymously as possible but still wishing to post on here not telling the WG I post on here and when I do a review I am purposely vague when I punted with her as I don't want her to know who I am, though I imagine some could work it out if they wanted to. It amazes me how many punters aren't bothered by this, some ask the WG if she wants a review, I do a review to help other punters primarily, its neither here nor their to me whether the WG wants a review or not. Cosying up to WGs isn't always good in my opinion, I punt and leave and that's it in the main. As ever different punters will see things in different ways obviously.

Is it a case that some members only review the 'extremes' of their punting experience? Only the very good and only the very bad?

If a punter continually receives mediocre or indifferent punts, then comes across a WG that doesn't mess them about or fail to delver, they feel compelled to review and advertise the positive experience.

There's also an element of boasting to a lot of reviews (guilty, I know) and these are always going to be positive.

I have to say that my reviews are generally positive. I think that's mainly because since finding this site, the standard of my punts have gone up considerably because it's so much easier to avoid the duds. It's pretty rare these days for me to have a punt that's instantly negative. Neutral yes, but that can be as much a matter of individual taste than anything else. This girl for example: https://www.adultwork.com/3019179 or https://www.adultwork.com/Lilly4you - gets great reviews from respected punters on here, but I saw her and really didn't see what all the fuss was about. Not negative, but definitely no more than neutral. But yeah anyway, for me it's really because I have got good at avoiding the horror stories, through a combination (I guess) of this excellent site and years of experience.....!

You make a good point about boasting, it makes me chuckle when punters reply to a positive review that they are envious or jealous, its paid sex FFS, all it takes is money, its not pulling tasty women that might take some effort.

Yes there is quite a bit of boasting on here in my observations, I suppose its human nature at the end of the day, many of us have done it at one time or another. It can be cringeworthy though sometimes in my view.

Offline Diehard

I tend to consider the whole thread as usually a positive or negative will elicit others to comment. Going off one persons experience is always risky as they could have caught the girl on a really good or bad day. But once you start seeing a pattern develop regarding her ability then that is when I make my judgement call.

My reviews are all Positive, aside for one Neutral.

Why?

Because I'm selective as to where I spend my money!  I do my research.  If I arrive and don't like what I see, I walk but unless it was a blatant B & S or a dodgy set up, I consider that my leaving is not a reason for a Negative review.

Good research, following hints left by known punters I trust and sticking with locations have a good track record works for me.

I have never understood this argument about doing research that people make. Thus suggesting those who had bad punts have not done theirs.

Two of my poorest punts I ever had are with two of the girls every single person else in the region that I live raves about and they are considered the golden girls.

Other cases is I have seen a girl two times and she was fantastic. And for the third she clearly seen me as a soft touch or something and gave me an abomination of a punt. This has happened multiple times too.

There are simply too many variables beyond the punters control to say because you've done research you have ruled out the chances of a poor punt.

I like to consider all of the reviews that a girl has had when making my picks - after all people do like different things.

I do wonder if there's some element of members not wanting to admit they had a shit experience and therefore not providing negative reviews.

Most of my horror stories are prior to my UKP days. At some point punters realise that if it looks too good to be true it most likely is. The model type photos of Romanians offering everything for £50 for half an hour will usually be B&S and if a profile hints at a miserable attitude then I avoid. Finally, if someone appeals on AW I search on here for comments and reviews. It's a plan that seems to be working apart from being stood up a few times.

For me too


Also I don't know if its only me but my expectations have risen during my UKP membership thus what was a positive 18 months ago could quite possibly be a neutral today.
UKP reviews are only one part of my selection process & yes there are punters whose judgment I trust more than others but with all that said I still take most reviews at face value.

If that makes me easily pleased then so be it after all its my money & my cock that needs pleasing.

of my reviews a good few that i said were positive at the time i would now rate neutral as iv now seen better girls, or realise what i liked then i now would not be satisfied with. Be good to be able to re visit reviews and amend them. 

I think it's true that some people will only review the extremes, while others might even only review the positives.  Personally I'm fortunate enough not to have had a truly terrible punt yet, but I've had a few mediocre ones, some of which I just didn't really think it was worth reviewing.

Maybe some people see themselves more as highlighting the good punts rather than calling out the bad ones.  Some people I think might be embarrassed to write about a bad punt?  Or maybe even worried that the WG might work out who they are and be pissed off?  Not saying I agree with those as valid reasons not to write negative reviews, just speculating that it might be the case.

Offline Mansell

I read all the reviews for the WG that I can and then make my mind up. I've see both sides guys that only do positives and then others where it seems to be mainly (ie more than 50% Neutral or Negative) I tend to be wary about both.

Of course the flip side is that some members only post neutral of negative reviews because they don't see the point of adding positives when a girl is well reviewed already. I've only ever posted positives because thanks to this place I've never had to take the chance on an unknown.

Offline The_Don

Overly long positive reviews, is what some like. But others don't and its easy just to hit that 'X' button (to close) if its to much.

Fact is some punters, will at some point have a punt that's, not positive. And they may-not chose to share it (up to them, IMO)

Punters do have different styles of writing.

One thing I like is being able to click the link (on a review) that is for that service provider to see how many pos/neu/neg there are.

what i liked then i now would not be satisfied with.

If only we could have more Insight than hindsight

Over time I've become more picky, with want I from a punt as well. Thus I may not re visit some of my passed positivity reviewed W/G, for a number of different reasons.

My reviews have all been positive except for one, thanks to doing my research on this site and going for girls with good ratings. I also think I have a good attitude going into punts and don't treat WGs like they are just a hole for my penis.

The 1 negative girl I saw was unreviewed and possibly on a drug comedown, luckily 2 other unreviewed girls I saw were positive.

I have no wish to criticise anyone who writes a review as I thinks the Review Section is the lifeblood of this Site.

As to people writing only positives, then others above have hinted at being found out by the WG then targeted for abuse if they write a Neg, It has happened on here to me before she was banned. Well bugger them , (not literally) if they were worth writing a Negative then I have no wish to return and wish to warn other punters. If only another punter had seen  my Neg before his visit then he would not have been robbed. I was the lucky one and the worse thing that happened to me was I had a bad punt and got a bit of abuse on an Internet Forum.

I think it also boils down to the Reviewers nature. Some people are "Glass half full"  so will find the positives in each meet, others are "glass half empty" so will highlight the negatives.

"She was not the best looker but she had a great body."

or

"Her place was a bit of a tip and I felt it was in a bad part of town."

Human nature.

As with anything posted on an Internet Forum I always add a large pinch of salt to the comments but ANY Review is worthwhile IMHO.

I review honestly as I see it on the day, I'll tell you what though, coming on ukp and building a trusted bunch of fellow podgers has cut the bad punts down dramatically for me, I give recommendations and I take recommendations

I think it depends on how many positive reviews the member has submitted, half a dozen is quite believable but if I see 20+ positive reviews and no negatives I would be very suspicious.

Some guys are very easy to please, some have more money than sense, some like to come across as Mr Niceguy.      :crazy:

I always smile when I see this nonsense about research, you are shagging a prostitute not buying a house, how much research are you supposed to do.   :unknown:

Only 5 reviews so far from me 3 positive, 2 neutral. It's not that i've never had a shit punt but probably have erased the memory long since. I'd have no worries though about submitting one if the service was shit. I imagine the vast majority on here are spending an average of £100 per punt (and the average has become higher over the last couple of years) and if you buy goods from somewhere and they are faulty or shit you take them back or get your cash back. Sadly we can't in this game so we review. Personally I tend to read negative reviews rather than the positive just so I know who not to go near.

I can find a girl on AW and within 10 mins looking on UKP will know whether she's worth visiting, and that'll be my research done. Of course you're supposed to research if you want to spend your money wisely. That goes with anything be it a house or a restaurant or a prostitute.

So how many positive reviews does the girl need for you to take the plunge, 2, 10, 20.    :unknown:

Sometimes you have to take a gamble, new girls on the scene will not have any reviews.

The problem with doing a negative review on AW is that the prossie can always  give you a negative back. I rarely give a review and can't be arsed with field reports.When I started on AW  I admit I did some positives just to get some positives back but I never gave a positive that wasn't deserved. Nowadays I will only consider giving a rating if I get one first and even then most times I don't. Just my way of doing things.
