Saunas In Edinburgh

39 posts in this topic

I have three queries about punting in Edinburgh saunas. This may apply elsewhere in Scotland but as I do most of my punting in Edinburgh I don't really know too much about other places.

The first query: There seem to be fewer and fewer places eg Fingertips, Atlantis, Angels etc; why are they disappearing?

Second query: Some places never get Field Reports, why or does nobody go there?

Third: Can someone explain the Licence Numbers on the adverts?

To your first, in Edinburgh, I use Scorpio, Carol's and (once only) Blair St, so I really can't comment on the others,

To the second, most of the Edinburgh establishments have put themselves on the "No Reports" list - perhaps because the proprietors do not want to have to know that some of their masseuses provide "the real thing"! Scorpio's mostly delightful team are quite often reported on, ditto Carol's.

Third - I haven't noticed licence numbers, mainly because I don't use the sites, but simply turn up (ever since the lovely Lucy stopped working in Edinburgh) on spec, but I have noticed framed licence certificates hanging on Scorpio's wall - presumably like taxis, the Council requires the licence number to be displayed, so that you can be sure that the fire precautions are up to spec, for instance.

HTH?

Saunas that are not busy, tend to close. Just like any other business. The no reports, is due to the sauna owners wishing to claim innocence in the event of a prosecution, a possibility. The license no is due to council rules i imagine.

Does anyone have any experience of a sauna in Edinburgh called Sunbed Studio on the east side of town. I've heard that they have a fabulous milf called Tina there but I'd like to get some feedback before heading into the unknown.

Thanks Irgendeiner. I am still in the dark about the licence system though. In the case of taxis I know that the fares are fixed and that the police will have checked out the cab and it must not be over age, and that the cabbie has the "knowledge". If the Council is checking the premises how come some have unworkable showers and in at least one I know has had a broken mirror for over 10 years. If someone checks the "knowledge", where can I apply for the job?

What does "HTH" stand for or am I naive?

And like Jigsawfan I would like to hear about Sunbed Studio as it is one of the two advertised places I have not been to (the other is Ambassadors).The FR for Tina is 5 years old, and time changes things.

I have punted, off and on at London Street Sauna since 1994 and have never had a bad punt, indeed I had some absolutely wonderful times.

One girl was so good she married the boss!

They are on the 'no reports' list here on Punternet, I think on their request, they are almost always busy and don't need endless extra phone calls.

The place is clean, good towels and dressing gowns and (surprisingly) a suana that works as well.

Usually five of more, sometimes seven, girls on shift, so plenty of hoice.

There was a great girl called tia working at abacus until a couple of months ago. Anybody got any idea if she is working somewhere else now?

Thats one of the drawbacks--girls move on. I have been trying to track down Lana, who also worked at Abacus (aka Dundas Street) though I met her at Gentle Touch, which is a branch of the same firm. Anyone know where she is--she was also a pole dancer.

No, to my sorrow, not the Lana I have in mind. Yours is dark haired and East European, mine is blonde and local.

Not clear from the thread which establishment 1AN refers to - is it London Street or Sunbed>

Is Carol's still going? Have they gone on the no-report list? I noticed PN took all my reports on Carol's offline in August, but I haven't been in Edinburgh recently so no idea if its still there on the ground.

Haven't been there in ages, and I believe they closed down for a while last year as FRs from before August 2010 (including all mine) were deleted for that reason, but the website is still live:

http://www.carols-sauna.co.uk

and they aren't on the no-reports list as there are currently live FRs, most recently from Nov 2010.

It seems that old FRs for girls still working at Carol's (Heidi, Stephanie, Elizabeth) were reinstated.

One reason for my initial query about the licence system is that since the numbers have been appearing on the adverts, which I assume is compulsory, the style of advert has changed, and in the case of the phone books almost disappeared. Also from comments, it seems as if FRs are being pulled as a result of the licence system. Punternet is at its most useful when it is the source of consumer opinion, and its a disappointment if effectively censorship can be put in place by the licence system or even the owner's fear of it. I was hoping that someone could explain how the licence system works. Also my experience is that punting is more satisfactory in Edinburgh than in Glasgow, where the police seem to be much less liberal. The regime in Edinburgh it seems to me has encouraged safer places and better working conditions (unless some WG is going to contradict me), and I am worried that if there is to be only one police force in Scotland, it will be the attitudes of Strathclyde which prevail and Lothian & Borders will disappear. I'd rather have Inspector Rebus than Taggart!

Absolutely correct and well said. :)

Sigh... why do people make it up when they don't know??

The reason given by Blair St and London St for removing their FR's was the risk to the establishment and the girls of having their incomes assessed by IR and C&E.

Saunas in Edinburgh have to have regular inspections due to the risks of fire associated with the sauna itself - BSS is only 3 buildings away from the place in Cowgate that burnt down a couple of years ago, (not due to a faulty sauna as far as i know). And the authorities in Edinburgh are fairly happy that their sauna model works, because it enable them to contain the Leith area RLD to minuscule proportions. Look how many ads there are for Glasgow girls on the other site, compared to Edinburgh, to see if the Glasgow 'model' is working or not.

I think he was asking the question, rather than making it up. Give him a break.

Yes I was asking the question, but I don't seem to have any information on the licence system, so I am going to ask it again but on the Legalities forum
