Condom Preference

53 posts in this topic

A recent punting experience got me thinking whether it would be a good idea to bring my own condoms along to the punt, as the condoms provided seemed to really reduce sensation. In social situations my condom of choice is Durex Fetherlite as you tend to experience greater sensitivity with the "ultra-thin" design, but I wonder how the average wg would feel about a punter bringing along his own supply, would it seem a bit weird?

Do any punters do this as a matter of course, or request a particular brand to be stocked by a parlour or regular indie?

I don't think many ladies would be prepared to use condoms provided by a punter and I know I wouldn't, but it's perfectly OK to ask when booking if she has a particular type or brand if it's a genuine preference. Provided you give her reasonable warning (ie. half a day or so at least, not half an hour), I'm sure most ladies would be happy to get some for you if they don't have anything suitable; most of us keep a wide range of different sizes and makes around anyway and there are a lot of different 'super-thin' types.

I would refuse to use Durex because I don't like them and have found them unreliable in the past, and I'm allergic to latex anyway (I use Mates Skyns which are brilliant) but even if I wasn't/didn't I would always have a variety in stock for reasons of fit, if nothing else.

Just explain the situation in your email/phone call and if you don't get a positive or helpful response, try somebody else. Easy peasy :).

I take my own. Nobody has had a problem using them so far - though given Amy's comment above I might start checking with the girl beforehand.

I take my own (I use Mates Skyns as well - brilliant!) when visiting my favourite girl, whom I've seen many, many times, so I'm trusted, but you have to respect a girl's decision if she doesn't want to use your own condoms - there are too many odd people out there and it's risky. I would also caution girls against leaving condoms and the punter in the room alone together for the same reason. Many high turnover places in Soho leave them in a basket in the room - not a good idea.

If I were a WG, I certainly wouldn't accept a johnny from a punter. He might have pierced it for all she knows. But recently girls have tried putting them on me but they were very tight. My todger is not particularly thick but is long according to some girls.

The girls posting on this thread sound over concerned in my opinion. But then life treats us all differently.

I take my own along, 'cos I like Boots' cooling condoms. The downside of them is that they come in packs along with their warming condoms, which i don't like, so i have to buy a pack of 18 to get 9! But they usually have special offers, so it works out OK.

Most wgs are happy to try them, and usually like them (only one exception from the ones who have tried them, she said they irritated her - unfortunately, my favourite girl, but she has started getting specially tight ones for me, so that's OK!).

But one wg I've visited a few times never allows anything other than her own to be used after a bad experience letting a punter use his own, which began to tear mid-punt. And Amy's comments (plus subsequent posts) have made me think a little more about the potential downside for the wg, 'cos - as a naive innocent - the possibility of a punter doctoring the condom beforehand just hadn't crossed my mind. So I hope the ladies I visit keep trusting me - but, as always, I am happy to accept their decision to say no if they don't want to, and am a little more understanding of the reasoning now.

And in future I'll give them at least a day beforehand to get some cooling ones in.... :D

I'm not. When I shell out £80 - £150, I expect a bit of trust. I can usually be won over though by someone charming. In fact, I'm a bit of a softie for nice people.

'I'm paying so what I say goes' or even 'I've got cash so I must be trustworthy'??? Only up to a point, and when it comes to something that could compromise our safety, I believe we've every right to be concerned.

In my decades of punting some WGs wont use condoms brought by the punter in case he has pierced them. According to WGs i have punted with and from posts on here this has happened, hopefully very rarely but they were aware of it.

If you do bring your own ensure they are in the original sealed wrapping or at least the box hasnt been opened. As ever speak to the WG when booking and mention this. I personally rarely have problems with the condoms supplied but have my own in case but its extremely rare i need to use them. :)

You can expect what you like, but I wouldn't trust somebody who would make such a self-centred, arrogant remark as far as I could throw a grand piano. We don't know you from Adam - what exactly have you done to earn our trust? Do you think we should all saunter off on outcalls without any security or telling anybody where we are too? It has nothing whatsoever to do with what you're 'shelling out'.

My and other ladies' only interest is in protecting our health and that of future partners so that we can all continue to enjoy ourselves long into the future, and as I have already said, I will endeavour to fulfil any special requirements condom-wise if possible. If that means your delicate sensibilities have to take a knockback than tough - if you have no respect for our wishes and don't want to see responsible, professional providers there are plenty of others out there to choose from (and it doesn't take a genius to work out where they may be found, either).

100% dead right! I assume that my lovely pay-as-you-go girlfriend will have a good eye for sizes, and will have the appropriate McIntosh ready just for me! I would never, ever, even dream of taking my own.

While HIV is for ever, and a credit card is nothing more than £$€, I wonder if my brothers who expect to be allowed to take their own are happy to leave their credit cards with the receptionist in parlours or FKKs (to be, one assumes, cloned, while you wait)??

I've always taken my own and the wg's I've seen have been fine with it. Although I would understand fully if they declined and would accept their decision.

I definitely agree that girls should provide the protection, very much a safety issue and to avoid any nasty situations it is just not worth the risk.... by all means though I would suggest the client make a request for a particular brand then everyone is happy

It makes sence if the girl brings the condoms, if only because you can then buy in bulk. I get mine in packs of 100 and they work out at about 20p each.

I always assume that the condoms will be provided by the lady, if only for her own peace of mind. However, there have been very rare occasions when there's been a look of horror, and then the immortal words: 'I... I... I've ffforgotten my supplies!' so just in case I have a sealed packet of a reputable brand to hand for outcalls.

I allways take my own condom, as at my age (60+) I have problems with sensitivity. Generally the girls have no problem, although one lady insisted that I present a sealed packet,she kept the renainder for my next visits, did encourage for me to return. I can't understand what twisted mind would try and pierce a condom.

Scum sadly.

They do though, unfortunately. We're talking about strangers here - we don't have time to decide whether or not we trust you enough to not tinker with the condom or make sure that it's not out of date and has been stored properly or whatever, and whilst some evidently are prepared to take the risk, many more (as far as I've found at least) are not. I don't think it's really about the type of condom, but who is supplying it. Would you object to a lady providing your chosen brand/type (in which case I don't understand what difference it makes), or is there some other reason why punters are taking their own as they would rather not use condoms provided by the lady?

Having had occasion to use a latex condom recently as they don't make the non latex ones in the different sizes, I can say that sensitivity is something that I would have preferred a bit less of having been left unable able to work the next day (apparently I should have taken Clarityn first - I'll know for next time :blink:). Any punter digging his heels in and insisting that his 'special' condom was the only one he was prepared to cover himself with would be politely shown the door here unless there was a very, very good reason. And I still wouldn't use one I didn't buy myself.

I am totally fascinated with condoms! I'm always buying the latest 'best' version but so far mates skyns has got to be the best I have tried. I am latex sensitive so I don't like using non latex condoms - it's only going to lessen my enjoyment, and in my mind my partners enjoyment too, I tend to dry up completely if I use latex condoms - not nice! However if my gentleman has a preference I would definately buy them especially for them. I feel that I should really be providing the protection because surely that's what being a good escort is all about? I value my clients and my own sexual health, I test ever six weeks, despite being extremely careful. I did buy some 'bigger' condoms recently, so if I meet a 'larger man' I can use them in confidence knowing that his 'man hood' does not feel strangled!

I have allowed men to use their own condoms a few times, I don't charge much because I keep my overheads low and part of that means I don't have a huge selection - I have big, normal size and small, I have extra safe (for if my client is very concerned about safety or if I have any concern about health and hygeine that isn't serious enough to refuse service) and I have flavoured. I usually have latex free but my husband prefers them so sometimes I run out without realising and am stuck without until the next day. I would always check carefully over the foil pack to make sure there's no evidence it's been pierced (even a pinprick would leave a small rough spot, I've tested this) and check the use by. I can't guarantee that it's been stored in perfect conditions of course but I consider the risk fairly low and I've never yet had an accident with a client's condom.

That said it is totally down to the ladies' choice whether they'll use it or not, and every client I've had who wants to bring their own has asked if it's ok not just expected it. It's something you should always always always check in advance because you don't have a 'right' to expect anything during your appointment that isn't one of the explicitly stated services on the escort's website, aside from of course good manners and a friendly attitude.

I have a wide selection to hand including different sizes, as well as the new Mates Skyns. Trust now this is a very interesting and valid topic. Unfortunately it is very difficult to tell the genuine guys from those who would try on a little trick. This isn't born out of mistrust, but purely from responsibility. A WG has a responsibility not only to herself, but also to her clients as well. Let's use a slightly different example, sometimes clients ask why I need them to confirm on the day. Insisting they are genuine and trustworthy, and can guarantee "110%" that they will be there. Unfortunately a lot of chaps who then spin a girl a merry dance will often also say exactly the same things too. I've also had very genuine guys have life intervene too, so now I actually advise against making such 100% promises. It's not a question of trust, simply taking responsibility and confirmation also gives the WG a point of contact should anything arise at her end.

Back to condoms I had a client who once brought along his own Lambskin condoms, I had never come across these before and a quick google search revealed that they do not protect against STDs. Not all brands are kite-marked either.

At the end of the day there are are trustworthy people out there but since a girl has her livelyhood to think of, as well as her health and that of her next client she will be seeing she then does have to err on the side of caution.

Oh dear.. I must be a crap working girl then. This will be my ninth year of fun, and I buy the condom which gives ME the most pleasure. It's Durex and they have little nobbles on the outside - can't remember the name ( could be sensations) but I know the box when I see it :)

I have no problem with any guy bringing his own along, and if I ever do an outcall which is not often, I take the empty packets away with me for his discretion of course :) It's no biggee for me.

LOL

Early on in my new-found single days I got used to having a couple of condoms in my wallet, and on one occasion when a girl visited me it was just as well because she had forgotten hers.

I often wish I'd discussed the situation with my all-time favourite girl, because the ones she used could have served as tractor tyres, and it wasn't until late in our two years plus of 'togetherness' that she changed brands to something much closer to a condom than the Michelin feelalikes she had used before. :rolleyes:

However, sooner those than one I used for a private (non-punting) event and as I withdrew I was shocked to see it was almost shredded. I take the point Strawberry makes in that you must put reliability first and foremost.

Saw a new girl recently and although I'd advised her in advance that I'm a bit on the large side she only had standard size condoms with her for the outcall. She struggled to get the condom on, and in the process Mister T started to flag. How do the ladies feel about a punter bringing his own condoms, and do any guys have experience of doing this? Notwithstanding the above difficulty, the lovely lady gave me my best time to date!
