Client Or Punter

31 posts in this topic

Following on from the thread about the "right type of client" I started to think about the WG's who refer to us blokes as "clients". They seem, to me, to be more upmarket and are the sort of lady I would wish to visit. Those who call us "punters" in their adverts etc are less likely to attract me.

How do WG's regard us?

perhaps you should ask G to rename the board as Clientnet?

I tend to say "client". For one thing I just find it nicer, but the fact that the anti-prostitution crowd use the terms "John" and "Punter" puts me off using them.

I'd love to be able to say "my boys", but although when Dollymopp says it, it sounds endearing, when I say it, it sounds like I'm up myself so far I may never see daylight again, so I tend to refer to "my chaps" or "my guys".

I prefer punter, an excellent word to decribe my paying for sex activities and a vast improvement on being called a "john" in the 80s. If a lady wants to call me a client thats up to her but i will always use the term punter.

As my real name is John (which not all ladies believe when I tell them) I don't mind what the lady refers to me as!

In my experience most girls (both indies and in parlours)refer to us as clients. I still think of us as " punters"

I cant say that I am particularly bothered either way, but I think of myself as a punter- I quite like the word!- but I would probably prefer it if the WG thought of me as a client.

That doesnt make a lot of sense, but that is how I prefer it I think.

I refer to my actual clients as clients, they might be guys or chaps sometimes too - but not a client until we have met officially, but they could be a 'potential' client if they think they may be interested in meeting me.

I use the term 'punter' in an affectionate way, to describe the collection of men who roam around out there in the world of paid encounters. This covers a wide range of individuals, who all look for different things, although they often fall into particular groups. When I use 'punter' it's not in a callous, or harsh way at all.

I'm with Jimmy, I call myself a punter, but like it when WGs say client. I'd quite like to be a 'Gentleman Caller' but I fear that time may have passed!

I think that's how we would all like to be thought of. Very well put, as usual, Strawberry

Anybody knows the Russian slang for "punter/john" used by the E.E. escorts?

You will have to enlighten us please, Jack.

I would refer to myself as a punter, as it could mean many things and does not automatically mean you see prostitutes…

However I would expect that the WG or Agency should in an ideal world refer to us as ‘clients’, however I am sure that we are referred to as many things behind their closed doors, which we are probably best not to know ! :blink::lol:

"Monger", I imagine is one of them, because I was once told by a WG that's what I was :D

In the states you are called a hobbyist. I dont use that, you are a client paying for a service. Its business and you should be treated and talked to professionally. (treat it and you as such anyways) So I wouldn't use your term either.

I always use client, although as Strawberry feels, I also have no problem with the word 'punter'. I just can't help associating it in my head with a load of guys in a betting shop cheering on some horse!

That used to be my concept of punting till I grew up!

Like some others, I happily refer to myself as a punter, but prefer to be called a client by the WGs I see.

One girl I saw last month referred constantly to her customers as her "gents".

I've always termed you 'the boys'! In the late 80's I made my best friend a catsuit and she called it her 'boy-catcher suit', and we would go out 'boy-catching'. I think client sounds very formal, I conjure up pics of shaking hands over a desk and being all business like.(I've seen some shaky hands and desks, but you know what I mean?) Punter reminds me of horseracing! And...it's the third furlong, Dollymopp's coming around the bend, being overtaken by...

Johns. Johns are wearing long johns and look like something from the Wild West, the sweaty drunk men you see in spaghetti westerns!

I sometimes say 'my visitors' too.

The last WG I saw referred to her 'customers'. Sounds like a shop! (she was very nice though and English wasn't her mother tongue).

Punters are to be found at race courses or in betting shops. :)

I prefer to think of "clients" as friends (for regulars) and guests (for initial meetings).
