How did you discover this website?

74 posts in this topic

It's funny. In typical society there is a bunch of sub-societies, cultures and so on. I never would of thought such a website like this would have existed. This whole world of punting was so strange to me. At first thought working girls were limited to central London with the odd street walker pretty much operating in certain locations. Now it is like I am aware of a whole new world. I live in a rather small and quiet place in London, yet, there is at least 5 girls with 5 minutes walk of me.

Then I discovered this website where punters and girls openly talk about the subject and even give reviews. How I discovered this website was on wikipedia, I think I was looking up something on prostitution in London and it mentioned this site and gave a brief overview what it was about.

I was innocently looking for a supplier stocking a range of flanges in different sizes and by a rather convoluted and improbable series of google links, I ended up here :)

I discovered this website when I was researching becoming an escort. Both this website and SAAFE have been pinacle in my becoming a WG. So much unbiased and informative info and opinons on here, it's refreshing to read about prostitution in a true light.

Must admit, I was a lurker for many months before joing up here!

I found this site while search for an escort to see and found they had reviews on a couple linked from their website to here. That was way back in 2002.

Used the FR system ever since. Only in 2005/2006 did I start looking at what else was on here. Think I was viewing the forum behind the scenes since around that time too.

Only became a full member in 2008.

Found it by Googling massage / escort services in my area. Used the FR resource for ages before joining the previous forum which closed for a while, before Galahad reactivated it 2/3 years ago.

Came across it in 2000, about six months after it started if I remember correctly. I became aware of it after it got a write up in one of the broadsheets at the time.

Mind you that was the start of 4 years lurking before I eventually broke my punting and posting duck!

Went to a parlour, and was asked by the lady if i would do a review for her on Punternet. As the service was excellent, found the website and obliged.

I found PN by clicking on a link on a SP's website. I posted once on the message board then forgot about it for a year (though still searching for WGs regularly on PN), then a masseuse who used to be a regular poster got me really into the message board and I've never looked back!

Same here, and it took me to a field report of the lady. I left my first field report in 2002 but only discovered this forum last year. I think the reason why I didn't know the forum even existed is that it's called a 'message board'.

Hmm let me think, how did it all start for me... it was September 2008 and I'd just watched the 40 year old virgin for the first time and I though, shit I don't want to end up like that :D, I'd better get a move on, then I quickly realised that dating civie girls would be far to difficult.

I don't really remember what got me searching for escorts on the web, maybe it was in the news at the time ;)... but anyhow, I did a bit of googling and I'd seen a few sites, all with the usual disclaimer, "the money is for the escort's time, whatever goes on is between consenting adults"... and I thought... fuck that, I don't want her time, I want sex :o, how do I know it's a proper agency, with sex and everything :D

Eventually I stumbled across this site, specifically the field reports part of it, and I thought, that's exactly what I need :) I ended up at a local parlour that had a few good review at the time, maybe not the best place for it but I'm still glad.

I punted a handful of times over the next year, discovering this forum and ** along the way. Then came that fateful day, when HH, in all her wisdom, decided to mention punternet and I thought, I've been there!, it must be quite popular if she's mentioning it, I should go there more regularly.

Pretty much since then I've been a regular punter and lurker of this forum, with occasional posts :)

I met a client who told me about it, but as I didn't write it down I promptly forgot about it. He told me that he usually picked his escorts from the FRs. Then a while later I met another guy who told me I should use the site and get some FRs and offered to write one on me, so I thought I had better join and see what all the fuss was about. Oddly, that FR never turned up either!

I was reading an online article about a pornstar and I googled her for more info and two or three links later came across PN. God, what a revelation!!

I think that it was in 1999. There was an article in the Sunday Times about the FR's and I had a look.

I joined the old forum in 2004.

This forum via Punternet. It's a long time ago that I discovered Punternet, cannot remember when.

The same as Silverado's post just above.

Article in (Ithink it was) The Sunady Times back in about 1999 - joined up then. I was also a member of the old dicussion board _ though I'm not sure if I ever actually posted on it.

Believe it or not i first came across this site when i started university and for some reason as part of an introductory module i was searching the internet for "punting in oxford" (the other type of punting) it must have been late 2007, but i did not join until much later on as i was a keen punter net voyeur !;):D:D

Around 2004 the Sunday Torygraph ran a couple of articles how middle class women were turning to prostitution to pay for their childrens' private education.

Apparently they advertised their services through an internet site called Punternet, and their clients could leave information for other men via Punternet's Field Report system.

That would be the same Sunday Torygraph which thought prostitution was wrong and should be driven underground...

Yes 1999.

I had found a subscription site (UK Escorts) like small ads with phone nos. That lead me to search more diligently and up came the excellent, but short lived, Aphrodite agency in Aberdeen. There were links to Punternet and Aberdeen Girls on their site.

Signed up to Pnet and started on the PNMB and FRs

It was a long time ago, I first joined when punternet still used the original message board that G. wrote himself, then lapsed when he dropped that.

I think I found the advice for new punters page (seems to be long gone) via a search engine and that led me to the FR for my area.

worked in a parlour years ago and the owner had me in her room one morning to congratulate me on the field report I'd received. I was busy all day because of the report and soon learned the benefit of having favourable reviews. Good reports = more money ;)

Found Punternet via Harriet Harman.

I had never even heard of it before then.

I wonder if Harriet Harman ever stops to think that her blasting of Punternet led to thousands of new punters joining up!

;)
