How do walk up work? Is it discreet?
Sorry if it sounds obvious.
Simple really, dotted all round soho are doorways, with stairs either up or down, and a bloody great sign usually hand written on the wall or doorway saying something like 'New Busty Model Upstairs' or whatever...more often than not there is more than one door to try, one on each floor, in narrow buildings with oft dark landings and staircases which can shit you up if someone comes down at the same time. They are therefore not for the discreet minded as its obvious when you come out of a doorway what it is, hence if you are spotted by anyone you know by bad luck you are fucked. Thats part of the thrill I suppose.
..Back to the door, you knock or ring the bell, usually a maid of varying degrees of age/warmth opens it and either says come in and see the girl straight away or shes busy do you want to wait? The latter can be very uncomfortable as you sit next to the maid in a run down room breathing in secondhand smoke for an indeterminate amount of time wondering how long she will be and what is being done to her..The maids will always say she wont be a minute, a ho minute is equal to 10 normal minutes
Customers can come out past you be warned, it all depends on the flat layout. The norm is you look down if that happens, ie avoid eye contact with the spent punter.
Then in either scenario you get shown next into the room. This could be and usually is a small poorly lit room with net curtains, old Razzle mag pics on the wall and somewhere a menu, with prices. The rooms, like the the prices are untouched from decade to decade, dont expect too much and try not to think about how many have been on the nylon sheets before you that day. The prices havent gone up in 20 years incidentally.
Then the girl walks in, wearing not much usually. At this point you may well be a bit weak at the knees, nervous or thrilled, or put off. You say what you want, pays your money plus the obligatory pound (or two, that bit has gone up), she returns quickly and almost literally a stop watch starts and you do whatever you asked for immediately, no chit chat, just go! Its ten mins usually, which if you exceed a knock on the door from the maid serves as a reminder/warning. Its a quick cold fuck, with a random person behind a doorway. It can be both exhilarating and and depressing all at once. Either way its a bargain.
Avoid the ones with a telly on in the room, otherwise she may watch telly at the same time (happened once)..never communicate with or give money to anyone on the stairs, ever...and you will be lucky to even see a sink after yet alone a shower so bear that in mind if you need to hide your behaviour afterwards. There is no reason to go with the first one you see , you are allowed to say no thank you or whatever, although this can produce scorn/mild abuse/moaning. The problem is that you can see a few to gauge who is where, then go back to your chosen one and find some wanker has booked her for half an hour..get lucky with a new girl or a fitty and you'r hooked, get unlucky and you will feel dirty and cheated. Pot luck really, but the guides here will save a lot of bad runs. Lastly they are like the amsterdam windows, ever diminishing, so catch them while you can...
