Will Tripled Tuition Fees Trigger A Large Rise In The Number Of Student Wgs?

30 posts in this topic

I can't remember what the stat is but something like 10% plus of escorts and other sex industry workers are supposedly students.

Given the trebling of university tuition fees on the horizon, will there be a big increase in the number of students turning to escorting to help fund their education? What impact might that have on the industry?

All students who are ok with escorting income with studies are in to escorting anyways. So with higher fees , it is more likely to have fewer students in universities rather than students who cannot afford fees try to add to income by escorting. It must be remembered that escorting is not a job which any girl would just take up. It needs lot of thinking and bold attitude to venture into this profession. Yes we may have more students doing lot of other kinds of jobs to help support themselves, but I don't think a lot will now choose escorting as a way to fund the education.

Sorry to rain on your parade, but as you don't have to pay the fees upfront, I seriously doubt it.

Exactly, but it might lead in due course to a spate of young graduates supplementing their burger bar income (since so many buggers go to uni now that in a few years a degree will be pretty meaningless in the job market) by offering escorting services.

Maybe they should offer as a choice in the 3rd year, training in escorting and the art of tantric and FBSM so at least they can get a job when they leave Uni, with their degree.

How many graduates actually use what they learned at Uni in their future employment?

Sorry but I can't help but view this thread as similar to if a thread was posted saying will the use of hard drugs by by young women increase the number of young women becoming WGs?

It used to be around 40-50% of graduate entry jobs didn't specify any particularly degree subject so one could argue (albeit simplistically) that half of what is learnt isn't relevant to future employment.

More sudents may well consider it, how many will have the guts to actually go through with it and then to stick with it while being good enough to be successful is another issue.

I think a more likely outcome ultimately will be a reduction in the number of new punters, the reduced disposable income available to those individuals leaving university from having to repay the loans covering £27-36k in fees plus 3-4 years accommodation, living costs and all related course materials on top of all the standard living costs (mortgage, bills, transport, fuel) is not going to be conductive to engaging in this game on a regular basis.

Good points made, girls prone to escorting will do it even if fees are virtually zero, also the profile of the average punter is actually graduate under 35, they might well have less money to punt. Make students clean up the snow is my view, paid of course.

The tightening of immigration rules for students (not necessarily university ones ) could well see reduction in the numbers working in chinese "medicine" shops etc.

Average punter under 35?

Yes there is an annual gov survey on the sex industry, which shows an annual rise in use of wgs, and states that the profile of the average punter is surprisingly youngish and a graduate. The average age of posters on this forum is prob over forty.

I for one fit into the graduate under 35 group, do you have a link to said survey? would like to check it out.

Cant help you there, I read a summary of the survey in the economist, or maybe it was the daily mail.

The general question of student escorts often comes up on this and other boards. A fair proportion of the ladies who post here must have been students in their time: I wonder how many of them started their escorting during that period, or knew other students who did?

These students are little more than children.

What do you class as an adult then? these "children" as you describe them are considered old enough and mature enough by our society to:

Drink alchohol

Drive motor vehicles

Smoke

Have sex (and children if wanted)

Serve in the armed forces

and many more besides, they are more than capable of informing and then deciding for themselves whether or not to participate in this activity.

And we all know how reliable government statistics related to the Punting industry are, don't we? :rolleyes:

As for your own 'prob over forty' on this forum estimate, my own guess would be nearer to 50, unless the younger members are more reticent in responding to the various polls here that invite the punter to respond by age group. And future student debt repayment shouldn't threaten to lower it. But more mature students seeking more mature punters sounds fine to me. :P

Exactly Mike, it is ghoulish :angry:

No decent punter wants women to go into this line of work because they have no other choice.

Not sure what you think is ghoulish about it, as one of the posts above states, many students are mature students these days. Even if they are 18 or 19, they are adults free to make their own choices.

My original question was largely rhetorical - I'm personally not into younger women/students, most escorts I see are 30 plus...

They do have a choice, it's just that some consider screwing for money easier and more fun than getting up at 5.00am to clean offices, or working till 11 at night in a bar or Macwendyking, or doing without that extra alcopop, or pack of fags, or ipod, or party dress, or.....

And like pvcman, I rarely meet any lady under 30, and certainly nobody in their teens or early 20s.

The actual findings of the sex survey are fairly non controversial, it found that there is a year on year increase in no of wgs, and of punters. Most people on this forum would agree that both were true. I know that the average of posters on this forum is over fifty, I was merely trying to spare the feelings of my fellow punters. Some blokes are as bad as women about admitting and accepting their age. I have stated mine often enough, (54) And even guardian readers are beginning to accept that most girls do this not because of "capitalisms ruthless logic", but for a variety of reasons. Hunger is not one of them.
