I cannot think of a good title for this one, so I will try to explain here.
I am a relatively inexperienced punter, but I am learning fast. I have seen a few indies and I've visited Discretion in Hull a few times when I've been up that way. I like Discretion and I've had some great experiences there. But one visit sticks in my mind, and not for good reasons.
I went to see Summer there one evening and she was nothing short of amazing. She was very keen to please and just a lovely girl. But the reception I got when I first entered Discretion on this particular occasion left me feeling rather old and unwelcome.
Two girls greeted me at the door. I can't remember who they were, but I had not gone to see them. I followed them upstairs and sat in the waiting room. They both looked quite uneasy and didn't seem keen to discuss who I was there to see. When I told them I already arranged to see Summer, they seemed quite relieved and lightened up.
I am in my mid fifties and I definitely got the feeling that I was not welcome, based on my age. I am fairly certain that the the two girls were hoping that I wasn't going to ask to book in with them. Maybe they were new there and inexperienced, I have no idea, but it left a bitter taste in my mouth. I am always presentable and clean when I have visited a WG anywhere. I am not fat or ugly. Well, a bit overweight and not the spring chicken I used to be, but just to point out that I am not a slob and I take reasonable care in my appearance on such occasions.
OK, this is a long-winded way to say how OLD this experience left me feeling and it leads me to ponder a couple of questions. How OLD is OLD when visiting a parlour?
I'm know some WGs prefer older clients, but doubtless not all of them. But when it comes to parlours, is there a different level of tolerance or acceptance regarding the age of the punter?
