Author Topic: Why are escorts getting less punters than before?  (Read 8797 times)

I visited a young local escort a couple of days ago and to be honest she was very good looking with a nice body. Her prices were reasonable and yet she told me I was her first booking in 2 weeks while previously she used to turn punters down as she was always fully booked. At first I didn't believe her as I thought she just wanted me to book her again out of sympathy for her but then when I went home and did some research I stumbled upon this forum and realized there actually is a bit of substance in her claims.

If some are i imagine its because we are in a serious economic recession.

A lot of girls are a lot quieter than previous, I have had numerous different girls mention this to me in the last few months.

I suspect it is down to increased competition from an influx of foreign girls, and the economic climate  :hi:

It has to be said though that the Average pro$$ie is so bad at communication / organisation that I am amazed they earn at all, they often don't have a computer and or the internet, run out of credit on PAYG phone, have problems getting up before midday and like to be finished by 3 when the kids come home from school, of course taking 1 - 2 for lunch  :hi:

Quite....non essential services are a pretty good indicator of the state of the economy for the ordinary working Joe.

I read some of the thread the OP linked and to be honest I think that some of the ladies still haven't grasped the fact that 3x £80 equates to more than 1x £150.

They bang on that they are charging less/same as 10 years ago, well welcome to mine and many others world.

I have cut my rates in my line of work, increased my hours and in real terms taking in to account overheads etc am probably 30% worse of than I would have projected 10 years ago. I carry on and right now consider myself fortunate as my competitors fall by the wayside.

One girl seems to sum up the attitude of the Saafe prostitutes:

Damn you children and families!

So it's all the fault of your wives and children that they aren't getting any "work".

It's all down to market forces, charge a sensible rate and you will not have to watch Jeremy Kyle.

I know one girl who started a special offer of £100 an hour, a £20 reduction on her normal rate, so far she has not withdrawn the offer.

Sometimes you can earn more by charging less, I often do long fares "off the meter".

Offline Outcallguy

I agree completely with Jimmy.
rates at the moment don't reflect the current climate.

Start with low rates to get clients, then go from there!

Basically there are far more girls and women entering into this line of work but there is still roughly the same amount of customers but some of them have had to tighten their belts so unless you have a good supply of regulars you will be quiet.

Some girls give a shoddy or average service and rely on new customers only and do not have bookings from regs.  These are the ones who are getting hardly any work.

Basically you have to offer a bloody fantastic service (to get regulars) and for a bit less money than you are used to earning per hour to get the new guys in, to have amount of bookings needed.

All the tart$ in my area look like they've actually been on Jeremy Kyle !!!  :vomit:

I do not agree.  You start at a reasonable price to get regulars and then stay at that price until the economy picks up as a regular can soon become a non regular if you start making your prices higher, unless of course everyone in the area puts their prices up first.

It is hardly fair to start seeing a guy at one price then suddenly say oh no sorry but I need more money from you as I have put my prices up now you have become a regular.

I find the best way of highering prices is to allow the regs to stay at the old price and charge newer clients the higher rate and if they do become regs then you can drop the rate a bit for them too,  After all if you know you will be seeing someon every week/two weeks why not give him a little discount.  It does not affect us much and makes the punter feel good too

That's correct, a number of Pro$$ies I know have put their prices up,and I have said are you also increasing them fro your existing / regulars, when they have replied yes I always say well good luck with it, and they without a dount they say "but the increases do not apply to you"

Regular clients are the sensible pro$$ies "bread and butter" but they need to attract new clients as well as regulars do fade away  :hi:

The economy is not going to improve any time soon, take no notice of the Government and their fiddled figures, we have far worse to come in 2013 when the cuts really kick in.
Luckily, I saved up when times were good.  :drinks:

Sorry Cassie, I agree with you.
I didn't mean start at stupidly low prices. Just competitively priced, rather than just picking £150 or higher out of thin air.

I agree with you on the rest, it's almost a shame the ladies on SAAFE don't seem to acknowledge that in the thread.
One girl even say
"Low prices equals poor service" Without realising than price is independent of service. 

One pro$$ie on saafe said it's been so slow she's only had 3 bookings in 4 months!!!

That's nothing to do with the recession, that's just God telling her she's overpriced, crap, needs to retire and get a proper fucking job. The lazy cow!

Still, at least she's got her housing benefit, income support .....  :angry:

Personally an hourly rate of £150 is just rediculous in the current economic climate and personally I won't pay it.  I have other more pressing financial pressures at the minute and cash is tighter.  Luxury items are down the list of financial priorities (although I did just buy a new guitar  :hi:)

I recently did some work with an Architect, 7 years at University/training, 25+ years experience & he charged £70 an hour.  He told me that he was charging £95 an hour but had to drop his rates to get work.

took one look at saafe 3 yr ago never looked again. just reminded me of the bitchy phonesex forums, the moaning of no work etc

personally cant understand why anyone would post they have no bookings etc sounds so desperate

I agree. On the agency I go to there are 41 girls there. However about 2 or 3 are pretty much so difficult to book as they are so popular. The rest barely get any bookings and complain during bookings about how working for an agency is terrible as you barely get any bookings.

What they should be doing is looking to themselves why they don't get booked as much as some of the other girls there. The girl cannot change her looks but she can change her attitude. And likely the ones who get booked so much put effort into the bookings the ones who don't do not.

In my case I simply can't afford it, but even if I could I wouldn't have the inclination to punt as furiously as I did in the hey days detailed in my book!  :cry:

It's partly an age thing, but also when I've had the good fortune to have enjoyed fabulous punts with the likes of Nicoletta and a handful of others  the majority of punts are extremely ordinary in comparison.
As I detail in my book during 2001, the year of my other fabulous girl, I was punting like there was no tomorrow, partly to distract myself from her and partly to see if I could find someone similar.
On both counts I failed (at least at the time.  :D)

A book? A book? What's all this about a book?  :D

A lot of girls don't want new punters when it clearly says on their profile they don't see anyone without good feedback from other escorts on their aw account.

New Clients as in New clients to them, and the reality is if a pro$$ie doesn't want new clients she wouldn't waste her time having an AW profile, as for what AW profiles say, a lot of profiles also say they don't answer witheld numbers and they don't discount their rates, typical pro$$ie bullshit  :hi:

They usually stick to their word unless they get really desperate for the cash.

Have you been punting long / seen many ?

Have you been punting long / seen many ?

I have seen a good few amount to realize that when the goings get tough escorts will relax their rules a bit for example I once accidentallly called an escort from a hidden number she answered it to remind me I had to show the number which I promptly obliged and ended it in the end with an above average overall punt. Had she been a half busy escort she would never have bothered.
