All of that except blogs, they hardly ever keep them up to date. Twittering WGs is another drag.

Twitter - I have never thought of checking a WG's tweets(!) - what do they talk about?

Attitude, and you actually can tell a lot about her attitude from the way she presents herself on line.

For me, it's a mixture of all those things but reports / feedback have always been the deciding factor for me

-Being genuine...does it feel like it is her site and does she seem fun. To aim for...Dollymop.
-Pics...not pure beauty, but does she fit into the category I fancy. Real boobs etc.
-Reviews. Yes but only if a link to ones on PN.
-Services/Price/Location. Yes.
-Somehow that she is not to fussy. I dont mean low standards just ...relaxed. I am not paying for being judged and under pressure.

Location first, then check if she has a displayed phone number, if not i immediately look elsewhere and then look at her charges, photo/s and services offered more closely. See if she has any independent feedback by FRs or on here and elsewhere, perhaps speak to punters i know who might have punted with her or know someone who has.

I dont care about badly written profiles/sites because i have had great punts with WGs who were either foreign and knew little English or werent good at spelling and presentation, it doesnt necessarily follow at all that they are not good WGs in my experiences but i know some other punters are put off by such profiles/sites.

It then all hinges on speaking to her on the phone and i am looking for friendliness and answering my questions clearly which are seeking confirmation that she does actually offer the services i require at the price advertised with no extras charged but not mentioned and that her photos are of her and how she looks now. Through previous experiences i cant just take what a WGs profile/site says as being definitely true or up to date because in the past when i have i have arrived to be told DFK for example isnt actually available and she "forgot" to update her profile/site.

If i detect any coldness in her attitude i wont proceed any further nowadays, and if she doesnt wish to answer my questions which is rare and which are politely put no problem i just go elsewhere.

For me it's this sequence:
Reviews - and if on the Purple Site check the 'feedback chain' to see if anyone leaving feedback has seen other escorts that I rate highly;
Photos - trying hard to look through the photoshop to find someone I would find at least attractive and sexy;
Description - Can be extremely useful on the Purple Site as it is the escort's chance to let her personality shine through. Must be more than a few lines;
Location - From past experience, good escorts do seem to have their incall flats in certain areas especially in London - Victoria, Earl's Court, Paddington / Bayswater in particular.

Services are less important as for me, Looks and personality are just as important. Blogs can be useful especially if they show up the pretentiousness of the escort.....

  • Good clear photos that aren't obviously photoshopped that show her whole body. Bonus points for pictures showing the face outside of a private gallery
  • As little broken English as possible. I realise that most WG's are not English and I'm not terribly critical of profiles, but when I read things like "I can't wait to fel you" or "I want to tread you" it really puts me off.
  • Accurate location information. A profile that says you are at a hotel in Victoria when your location is set to Dartford and your interview pages says your nearest rail station is Bristol is going to baffle me.
  • Clear prices. When a WG states she charges £120 an hour in her profile and then the price at the bottom of the page is £100 an hour, its really annoying as it means I'm going to have to call and confirm what the price is often with someone who speaks little English who probably didn't even write the profile.
  • If there are any extras available, put them on the profile and state the prices.
  • No extra charges for OWO. It's become such a basic widespread practice that I feel paying extra for it is a ripoff when its available in the standard price from the vast majority of WG's.
  • Field reports and reviews. If we're talking about the purple site I don't pay any attention to the normal feedback people give as its generalised rubbish most of the time that can be easily manipulated. When a punter says "she's great! I had such a good time, will see again", what does that mean? One persons idea of good is anothers idea of average, and it gives no information on the level of service. A detailed written report is such a good sell.

First and foremost, I look for signs of the lady's personality and her involvement with the site coming through the text. I like to see if she appears to be genuinely happy to be an escort. I really do read pretty much everything on a site if my interest is piqued and I'm particularly interested in finding someone who seems caring and affectionate, so I'll be hoping for that feeling to come across in what's been written. Oh, and an idea of where she's actually based is very helpful /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

Then: a list of what activities she's happy / not happy to indulge in.

Then: unambiguous details of rates.

Then: links to reviews (although I'm told many punters tend to disbelieve these, so I must be naive - I've not been led astray so far, though!). Reviews that confirm what's on the website, e.g., the WG's personality and what services are offered, are especially valuable.

Probably only at this point will I actually look at the photos in any detail. Being able to see the lady's face is a bonus, although that's understandably rare.

Finally, clear contact details.

For me, being relatively inexperienced in punting it depends on how they have written their profile though it usually goes as follows, since I like to be thorough and not rush into things prior to taking the plunge.

After a girl’s profile has caught my interest I first check the location, whether it’s accurate and how near to the station the incall location is (depending on whether they have stated it in their profile).


Then I take a look at a girl's pictures and whether they are accurate, recent or even hiding something based on a girl’s poses plus whether they press the right visual buttons for me.

I then check her rates and services (which vary depending on my fancy), if there are extras or not and if her services include stuff that are complete turn-offs for me as well as how she comes across in her profile, along with whether seeing her entails jumping through hoops (5+ positive feedback, £50 deposit beforehand via giving away credit card details over the phone, outcalls only for first meetings and if at hotels to make sure they have phones in rooms, landline numbers only, issues with ethnicity / age / looks / disability, etc) that while understandable in some ways and down to a girl's personal preference (when they are not offensive) could potentially put my or other punter’s safety / health / privacy in jeopardy.

Check a girl’s feedback and reports, along with the punter's feedback from other women.

I then try to crosscheck a girl via Punternet or elsewhere to see whether they are on other sites and if so, check their feedback / reports there.

If there something that I feel needs to be clarified that is not stated on her profile, I would message / email her or sometimes even call her, prior to deciding on whether to take the plunge or pick a day for a booking, if she is prompt / genuine / easy-going and does not come across as cold / prickly either on the phone or via email then the booking is sealed there and then.

How on earth do you reach that conclusion? I would guess that far more than 50% of the ladies who post here are British (or native English speakers) . I have no problem with differing nationalities, but it happens that over 90% of my punts have been with British ladies.

I would welcome either support or being shot down in flames by those who know better.

Well duh, this is an English speaking forum. You're not going to get girls posting here who don't understand the language. You are taking this site that most punters don't know about anyway as the prime medium for punting. Use the purple site or agencies or anything and you will find that the vast majority of WG's aren't English.

After more than 40 years I have to disagree. I have met ladies from a variety of sites (and none) all over the UK.

Another Website has more than it's fair share of non English speakers but there are other sites.

I agree that there are some fantastic women who don't show their faces - it adds a bit of mystery as well... I think description is the most important part of the site as you get an idea if there is likely to be any chemistry between the two of you (if chemistry is important to you of course) and an idea of personality. - I can hear hundreds of punters scratching their heads at this point - personality? - what's this bloke on about?!!! Of course the description could have been written by her boyfriend for all you know so don't believe everything at face value...

IMO:

Reports and reviews are useful - however need to be read with a good dose of salt - beware of exagerations etc

Blogs give an insight into personality too but are hardly ever up to date - and according to one author - are mostly fiction anyway

Sorry girls, I don't want this to sound like I think all WGs are guilty of dodgy descriptions or misleading information and I have to say that in my experience nearly all websites/profiles have been honest and helpful but you can't get away from the fact that there are some dishonest people in this industry. Buyer beware!!

That has certainly been my experiences, some of the very best WGs dont show their faces and there is a perfectly valid reason for not doing so of course, if i had such a rule my available choice would be greatly reduced. Its also not often been the case that a WG has been so ugly that i wouldnt punt with her. For these reasons a facial picture isnt a deal breaker to me, i prefer them as many punters obviously do ideally though. /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

For me it's the Services / About Me page, if it's written with warmth and a sense of humour it's likely to get my attention. Photos come next, and I like to see a wide variety if possible, and not just sexy / risque ones, but fully clothed and out and about types - I don't know why, I just like getting that a better picture of what the girl is like. Then it'll be reviews - and if they're very positive, that's all I need to know.

Firstly, the site has to "feel" genuine i.e. actually written by the lady and with photos that are believably real. Secondly, a clear description of the services that the lady offers. I know some ladies shy away from stating explicitly the services they offer, and I sort of understand why, but I still want to understand beforehand if the lady will offer the services that I particularly want.

I certainly don't care about how professional the site looks, or whether it has flashy graphics.

I find that photographs are a good way to get me to look at a profile - as there has to be some physical attraction to make me look further. Feedback is useful, and I'd certainly take note of any negative feedback found anywhere, but a lack of feedback doesn't worry me. For me the most important thing is what the profile/website says about the lady - does she sound friendly, and like somebody that I would enjoy spending time with. As I'm one of those that needs a bit of time to relax and chat, I have to take this into account, so a well written and honest sounding profile is what swings it for me.

A face picture is nice, but is not essential for me. And I'm not one to be drawn in by fancy effects etc. on the website - a plain page that tells me what I want to know is fine - in fact I've even commended one local on their website, simply because it was plain and simple and gave the required information with the minimum of fuss.

I've got to say I do a bit of research before I make a booking and whilst the web site may be good I try to follow my own rule of thumb: check reviews, read web pages and blogs for the sort of service I might expect, way up the cost, purv the photos and try to get some idea as to what the lady's personality is about. It also helps if she is a poster on a forum as this gives me some reassurance that she genuine. Whenever I've gone away from research I've allways been disapointed.

Oh yeah, the reviews are the thing that ultimately swing it for me - if she didn't have any, or they were very mixed, I wouldn't see her, it's only if they're largely positive (and the service sounds like what I'm looking for) would I then book an appointment.

I might have missed out on some gems over the years due to this, but I can't afford to have a rubbish punt these days as I can only afford 3 or 4 a year right now.

I think it's a case of each to their own.

Guys have choices as to whom they'd like to see... and rightly so.

Some of you have said that you would not consider seeing a girl who doesn't show her face (how many times has THAT subject been covered now??), but as has been pointed out - there are many and varied reasons why some of us prefer not to show it. I would just suggest that you should read the feedback/field reports/reviews to get a better picture/image of what the girl is like.

I understand why some of you have said that you wouldn't book someone who has a badly written profile - spelling, grammar etc. I, personally, hate to see such a thing too, but have come to learn that, as someone has said here already, it doesn't make the individual bad, thick, ugly or stupid.

You're quite right when you say that the girl's personality should come through on her website/profile. You can tell a lot by that - including if the girl runs the site herself and/or if it (website/profile) is GENUINE!

Finally, I noted that there is a reply where the chap said that he would prefer there to be plenty to read on her profile etc....

I have spent a LONG time writing my profile and adding to the FAQ's (on the purple place). I think I've done a bloody brilliant job too - personality, humour, full of relevant info - yet there are still so many guys who call or email me asking my rates, do I do anal/cim. Making a booking before asking if I'm available and calling me on a withheld number etc....... AAAARGH!!!!!

I am always polite, friendly and cheerful when answering the phone, but when they ask me the above, I really have to bite my tongue!! /mad.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':mad:' />

But at the end of the day - you guys have to remember that WE don't have much of a clue about YOU. I've been told that the caller is mid 30's, athletic and well hung..... all I can say is that I would love to have a mirror like him (them), lol...

That's a good point, and so, although I'm probably unusual in this respect, I have put a lot of information into my profile over on the site you've mentioned, so that if I contact someone through there, they can find out something about me if they wish. That's the way that I'd prefer to make initial contact anyway, so it's there if they want it. Obviously I've no idea if any of them have read it, but at least I've tried to give those an idea of who I am. And I've been very honest in it, as it would only backfire at a later date if I wasn't.

After not seeing a WG for 9 months then 3 recently who have owo on their profiles but don't offer without I am doubting this now. The last one last year offtered covered only as well (that agency doesn't list any services on site though).

Surely you can go into your 'sent' mail and see what date and time the email was read?

I like to be able to chat to the guy on the phone too, though - you can tell a lot by the voice, accent, conversation. Sorts out the wheat from the chaff, and saves wasting a lot of time on both sides too.

No surprise really for me here.

If I was on the other side of the fence, photos would be the first thing that attracted my attention, the visual has to be very important surely?
Then it would have to be the price and was the price within my budget.
How a lady presented herself on her web site/profile by her words of type, is it informative about herself and all she gets up to?
Good reviews by a few different gentlemen.

Turn offs would be those who use blogs to rant on about timewasters/no shows/plonkers of any description, in fact any negativity connected with this world really typed up on a ladies web site/profile looks bad to read to me.

I know on that site that you guys have the option to do that.
I find 90% of guys will not fill that section out though.
A few may put their area and an age on it.

I have just received a message from a bloke new to me on there, he has filled it out quite well.
I liked that really as it gave me some sort of knowledge about him.
Probably not over important for some, but I do like a bit of info on who I am dealing with.

Not many surprises, really. I would have guessed that pictures, demeanour and reviews are what punters look for.

1. Selection of good, clear photos with a minimum of photoshopping
2. Provides all the services I require as a minimum and these are clearly stated on her page
3. Charges a reasonable rate (around £150/hr)

If I'm satisfied with points 1,2 and 3 then I'll look for independent reviews of her on sites such as this: if the reviews are good then I'll pick up the phone.

Occasionally, quite poor photos belie a very attractive girl in the flesh who also, more importantly, provides a superb service, so while this method above certainly isn't perfect, it has however helped me retain a very high proportion of very good to excellent punts in recent years

Guys when you look at a girl's website or profile what are the most important factors that will make you decide whether to book her or not (and why)?:

photos?

description of herself?

services?

reviews/reports?

blog?

other?


Personally I’d have to say photo’s (not necessarily face shot) and attitude.
I like to strike up a conversation with the girl first, you can tell a lot from how people communicate!
Also a blog can be quite useful in determining if the girl s genuine of if someone is behind her pulling the strings.
