Punting Prices Across The Years

14 posts in this topic

I have only started punting regularly in the last year, so I was wondering if punting is better value now than it was in the past, so I'm hoping for responses from you long timers, if you don't mind. If you could give an approximate year in your answer it would be helpful.

I thought I'd divide it up into 4 types of punt at different pricepoints:

A. Soho 10 min FS quickie, now £20-25 plus £2 tip for maid.

B. 30 min parlour punt in N. England, now £40-60.

C. 1hr parlour punt/1hr average indie punt in SE England, now £120-150.

D. 1hr with a top girl at a high class agency in London: £250-300.

I hope I've got the current price about right, but I don't have personal experience of B. & D. I know there's probably a bit wider spread than I have stated depending on the quality of establishment and girl, but I was trying to aim at the mid-range price of each type with a nice looking girl under 30.

Thanks for your participation

Punting is certainly better value than ever with many prices not having changed or actually gone down in the last 10 years so with inflation its less expensive now. I really cant remember exact amounts for the areas you have asked but i have mainly only punted at Parlours, Parties and Indies in the last 10 years.

You point D is a marketing ploy, it certainly doesnt mean the WG or indeed the Agency is any better than those that charge less as punt quality is not linked to price in punting. Unless i really fancy the WG i wont pay over £150 an hour as its not necessary for me to do so to find good WGs, obviously what others pay and what WGs charge is up to them. :)

it is in the manchester area in parlours, going back say 5yrs ago when world famous babes was the number one place it was £60 for 30 mins, now SS is prob the most popular and has stayed at £50 for many yrs, although some extras prices has gone up eg A levels £20 to £40 but the basic is a bargain..

it was 3£ in 1974, it is 70£ today. Looks and service have gone through the roof. Thank god for the fall of communism, and ryan air.

Of your present-day examples, I can remember that a Shepherds Market walkup in 1972 was five quid plus 50p for the maid. The converter gives the present-day equivalent as 52 quid, so, as you can see, we're getting much better value today.

What a great link Mr Bloom, as Pooter posted apart from the cost services on offer are much more extensive too so its a win win for punters as long as the punts are good of course. :)

Actually this is very tricky to answer, with or without freakonomics nerds.

I started in 98-9 and the internet was just starting to have an impact on the market. First of all girls found what others were charging, so combined with a relative boom escort pricing went through the roof - I can remember typical prices on Northern Angels girla for example hitting £200 foe the first hour for quite a lot of girls, and thinking, well i'm not going there at those prices - or there - or there.

Then the second effect started to kick in, as more girls realised how much money could be made, and came in, and suddenly there was a better balance between providers and punters. So prices have stabilised one might say. In truth, the price of a wg is not related to commodities, houses, or very much really except what the client will pay. there is enough competition around to keep providers 'honest'.

My first was 2/6d.

I think my wage then was about £1700 a year.

I'll leave it you to do the maths, I've got a little floosie in my sights gyrating on the night club dance floor.

If you were on 1700 when a punt was half a crown, you would be on £750k today at least

Oh well I'm wrong about the detail then. Sorry to startle you all.

Might the maths work if it was 12/6d? 1971 it was near Ladbroke Grove, big black lady.

Obviously don't get anywhere near £750k, crikey not even half that last year ...

When I started as an indie my hourly rate was 150 squid and I have only put the prices up by a tenner. Been around for about eight years, so that is not bad IMHO

Good girl------ But average inflation over those 8 years is 20% so, in real term. What cost £150 in 2003 generally costs £180. So you've cut your price, in real terms, by about 11%.
