Hi H of H.

Heard http://www.saafe.info/ might be a good starting point. Searching for Saafe on the board should push up some related thread for other avenues.

and also http://sw5.info/law.htm

Of course, I'm not a lawyer so I don't know for certain that their advice isn't rubbish, but it seems consistent with the general interpretation of the law on here. Good luck!

Everyone's screening process is different, it's whatever makes you feel comfortable about seeing a client. Although from what I've read of the US, your process is a lot more formal and thorough than most UK clients would be used to.

In the UK I've never been asked for ID, or references from other WGs for example. Usually you are required to not hide your mobile phone number when calling a WG. For outcalls you also have to call from the venue's phone. For incalls you usually only get part of the address when you book until the time of the booking arrives, presumably so the girl has a chance to peek at you through her window before she tells you exactly where she is.

The girls (and those from me and others) should offer better advice. I'm just saying the screening is probably quite loose compared to what you're used to due to the different legal situation in the UK.

Hi Helen,

I've punted in both the US and the UK - the UK is much more relaxed, most guys here would find it very odd if you were to ask to inspect their ID, I wouldn't bother doing this but if you feel you want to you will need to explain why. If you are using a hotel you should be able to screen out weirdos pretty easily and avoid uncomfortable situations.

Good luck, charly

I think this is the crux of the differences, I notice from your website you decline to discuss details over the phone or in person, presumable to prevent your self being entrapped by the Police.

This is different in the UK, since the prostitution is legal here providing a few straightforward rules are followed. Escorts operating independently and singly are within the law, working in/from a Brothel or agency is also legal for the girls (but not the management). W/G and punter must be over 18 (even though the legal age of consent is 16). No soliciting in public this typically refers to the street, but includes public areas of a hotel bars etc. (I gather from US television programmes this may be popular method in the USA, but is uncommon in the UK and you are more likely to get a surprised reaction than a customer).

The results is that conversation both by phone and in person tend to be quite frank so be prepared. There is an expectation that you will clearly state price (including extras), most experienced punters should mention likes/dislikes sex wise and expect you to confirm that you are happy with any sex acts he's mentioned or clearly decline them. Payment is typically up front usually handed over directly (sometimes in an envelope) or placed down on a in clear sight for the girl to check and put away.

When it comes to screening, no doubt the girls will contribute in due time but are focused on identifying time wasters and dangerous punters rather than having to worry about the Police.

You could advertise on the service providers section here, which will likely result in some bookings from Punternet regulars, you might also want to consider making a guest appearance at the House of Divine which provides incall & outcall services, have a reputation that is second to none and can probably take away some of the hassle for you.

Not so. Many indies will not discuss services over the phone and indeed consider that to be the first sign of a time waster.

The screening process is virtually non-existent in the UK. There used to be a punting guide for newbies that may provide useful background info...it was on the punterlink website.

Personally, I would never ask a girl about services in a phone conversation. Having said that I like the other site ( adult and work with.com) because it describes the girl's likes and dislikes...

Set up a profile there with a telephone number. Familiarise yourself with marketing on that site. They do provide a rudimentary security feature for WGs...Angels (I think).

If your blonde I can do you a free verification of quality of service. Hope you don't mind if we stop now and then mid shag whilst I make notes on my clipboard?

Prostitution is legal in Britain, so everyone's relaxed. Screening, compared to America, is non-existent. Most girls develop a sixth sense to weed out time wasters. If you insist on American style screening then you won't get clients.

As said by others, the situation over here is very diferent to the situation in the US. The only place over there I have been with WGs is Las Vegas, which seems to be fairly easy although it is still illegal, I met one girl on the way into a casino and another on the street, just the 'glance'. However I did get to know a couple of guys from the States who ended up punting over here, and one British WG, who did some work in the States, I know there is some variation between diferent states. However over here WGs know that they aren't normally being set up by the cops because they aren't doing it wrong so no need for ID from a punter. An unwithheld phone number is the norm, if you're going to meet someone in a hotel you want the name they are booked in under as well as number, this means you can check they are really there. I know that in the US the police sometimes set punters up by doing reverse stings, so WGs have have to provide proof they aren't the police. There are independent agencies who will check things out there for both parties, just doesn't happen here. If ou ask for a punters home address, driving licence etc you are very likely to get little business.

I took a look at your site earlier and notice that you won't give details of services so you have something to talk about when you meet, however earlier in this thread it says you won't discuss services on the phone. Sorry but if a punter wants OWO, CIM anal etc, he will want to know this before he meets you, you have to tell him either online or on the phone. Best of luck anyway and I hope you have a good time over here.

Punters will want to talk to you about the services you offer or you can have a "Services Page" on your website listing what you will or won't do. The most important thing, however, is to forget all American attitudes to Prostitution and remember that it's legal in Britain. What you do in America regarding screening, you simply cannot do here as punters won't tolerate it. No one is going to give you a reference and no one is going to fill in your screening form. There are so many girls offering what you're offering that, quite simply, you won't get any clients at all if you bring American attitudes with you.

my site is set up for the U.S. market, but would modify protocol once in the UK for obvious reasons. a provider's services, on this side of the atlantic, are generally advertised in reviews, or field reports as they're referred to here.

thank you all for the info, i appreciate it! will be popping in and out, don't mind me :)

Maybe set up a separate website for the UK?

Let us know when you are over here. May help to make the launch a success!

you can make a quick webby using moonfruit

and get a .co.uk URL from lowcostnames. GBP6.50 + vat for 2 years.

BTW here all transactions are cash. no cheques, or plastic. just simple folding. dunno if that differs from the US or not.

not sure if you have to have a work permit to be a wg here. dont want you to have trouble with immigration! Sure someone here will know...

Hi Helen

I was in Houston in November - stayed in the Woodlands. Absolutely loved it and cant wait to get back next year. It amazes me why you would even contemplate moving to such a cold and depressing country as the uk....Its finished here and things are looking very grim indeed...most decent people have emmigrated, bad attitude everywhere, disrespectful binge drinking children and parents ....need I go on...:(

Best advice > search for a much greener grass, or stay in Texas with its lovely sun, and u will make more money there too !!! B) B) B)

And risk being arrested, definitely fined and probably imprisoned too.

Don't answer any text or withheld numbers and chances are they are time wasters.

No need to ask for ID here unless they look very young.

Be open about what you are willing to provide to avoid awkward situations.

Be discreet and don't ask for the clients real names.

Don't disturb the peace by being to noisy as that is likely to get you into trouble XD. If you are planning on allowing incalls then take note of keeping the peace as causing complaints could get you into problems.
