Before The Internet

18 posts in this topic

Before the advent of the internet how did blokes know if the wg they had booked was any good?

You would hardly talk to a friend & ask if the wg was any good.

Also how did you get to find out if all services were available before going along with an appointment?

Thank god for sites such as this one. :D

For me it was word of mouth back then ,you mention that friends dont talk about this topic well some do! Within my close inner circle a few guys do see wg's ,however its not regular punting...occasional I would say but its something we can openly chat about etc

But seriously thank god for sites like this...the amount of invaluable info on this forum and the fr's is priceless!

These days its easy for any agency or independent to setup a website which is a good thing overall though can be a negative with regards to scammers etc

How did we know they were any good?I guess we didn`t until after the event. :)

Contact mags.They used to be quite good..at least until recently.Whereas you might get 250+ ads,these days you`re lucky to get70/80.{I`m talking West Mids here}

As for services provided,I`d just ask over the phone.

'fraught with every perfection, enters a volunteer in the field of Venus. She plays on the pianoforte, sings, dances, and is mistress of every manoeuver in the amorous contest that can enhance the coming pleasure; "

They don't write FR's like that anymore!

Ahh so they do still write them like that?

I suspect a woman above 40 (or even 30) in that era was in pretty poor condition compared to the 21st Century foxy 40 something!

Half the cosmetics contained Lead, arsenic or Mercury, Can you imagine the skin condition after years of that! ...and she would probably have been riddled with unsociable diseases ! No dental or "personal" hygene products, No hot water No hair products or dyes! no creams or toners no smart clothes or gyms!

They must have been one step from Mrs Neanderthal and her very hairy mary experience!

A very different prospect to a modern woman of a certain age!

it was a fucking nightmare, dont forget it was also pre mobile phone days, so you would be in a phone box with a shitload of 10ps, asking for details which were generally untrue, you would turn up and if she looked half like the description you were lucky, service was often very average, if you did come across someone who was half way decent you became a regular, but then when they retired you would have the hunt to start again, I found a very good girl from a contact mag one time and must have spent a fortune seeing her, but then she retired, never yet met anyone to match her, but the hunt continues.

It wasn't easy- relied on adds in papers or in some cities (Birmingham, Edinburgh) the phone book. Very hit or miss.

I have 4 spares of the 'Harris List of Covent Garden Ladies' (Pnet 300 yrs ago!) I buy them to give away to people who don't have to explain where they got it...gave one away today, actually! There's also another book telling the story of how that book came to be. Check out Hallie Rubenhold's writings.

Before the internet, I was in a flat and the maid would reel off a list of services/fees on the phone and describe me. Her voice would switch from broad Leeds accent into Joanna Lumley, haha. Of course, the people visiting me got a nice surprise as I WAS as she described. Except I was 21, and I was really 28. What was wrong with 28?? I asked. They will think you're 38! she said...

It went like this, circa 1996 -

'Today we have Heather, she's 21, a slim and shapely 34/24/34 (true, then) with beautiful blue eyes and long silky black hair, she's an art student, only available on Saturdays, and very pretty with pale skin. She is wearing black satin underwear and black stockings and suspenders. The entry fee is £10 and fees range from £40-£90 for the half hour, which you can discuss with Heather in the room. Services are £40 for....£50 for...etc.'

I designed the adverts and printed them out at home, gave them to the madam and told her to photocopy them when she needed more. It was 50p a week for shop windows, have no idea what the newspaper ads cost her. It did the trick! We were always busy!

When I first got into escorting our local paper would not advertise massage so I

advertised in the sport paper which I would say is more like an adult comic our

local paper takes the ads and there are loads in there now the paper must being doing well

with all the ads agency have boxed adverts. I only use internet.
