Would You Be Put Off Moving To A New Area If There Were Lots Of Wg's Working There?

24 posts in this topic

I'm scouring Rightmove, and findaproperty (as well as some others) on a daily basis, as I've realised that I will need to move house, for various reasons.

One of the areas I'm considering, because it seems quite leafy, has good transport links, and yet is not tremendously expensive, also has by coincidence a rather high rate of independent WG's with regular turnover, to be found on the purple site.

Would you say that this has any bearing on the area, really? Does this necessarily mean that it's a bad area? I must confess I don't know much about the area, but I've checked on the Police.uk website, and the crime in that area is apparently "average".

I cannot believe that you as a punter would check the crime databases ...do you commit crime on the way for a nifty bonk? Or do you think its the wg's who are rushing out and causing a bit of affray after your booking to ease the pain of you walking away at the end of the appointment?

you just stereotyped yourself..sorry but thats a bit funny.xxx

As a punter I would say that is a bonus

Why would it necessarily be a bad area because there are many Indies working in the area, i dont see any link myself, if it was a red light district with street workers which my mate used to live in then that did bring pimps and drugs into the area.

Like Steve said i would view it as a big advantage myself.

It could mean more people are around during the day, to put off potential criminals.

Would you consider Kensington, Knights bridge, Mayfair etc as bad areas?

Chloe, you appear to take personal offence from my question, and I'm sorry if that is the case. Perhaps it is stereotypical of me to ask such a question. Before posting my question, I'd felt more inclined to the opinion voiced already here by Steve2 and Smiths, that is to say that it would be advantageous to my hobby to have a fertile punting ground on my doorstep. Naturally though, I don't feel this would be good if there were streetwalkers, or there was a red light area in my neighbourhood.

The reason I felt necessary to ask though, was because the area I'm contemplating is close to Heathrow, and while it isn't Slough, it still appears to have a high turnover of European ladies who don't seem to stay very long. So, drawing upon my own personal experience here, I'd say that they come in for a week or 2 at a time, and stay cheaply at Premier Inns, or Travelodges in this area. I'm still not convinced that this has any effect on the crime levels in the area, firstly because this isn't any crime, it's not anti social or anything, but I just wish to guage other people's opinions around the subject.

What you say now is different. Having WGs in the area is rather different to street walkers. There are WGs living in large numbers in some of the very affluent parts of London. However if you are talking about street walkers in undesirable locations then I would say you should think twice about moving there specially if you have a family. Personally I would not mind at all moving to an area where there are lots of WGs but I always check the crime rates in areas I am considering.

I have not seen street walkers in London for some time. Do they still exist?

I'd not think having WGs touring/visiting hotels would make any difference - if anything it might bring more business for the hotels, and surrounding shops too. Girls need supplies you know!

Sorry? How is it different? Are you just trying to be argumentative?

Yes, there are areas in London with streetwalkers. Chalvey, which is in Slough, has streetwalkers. This is but one reason why I would never contemplate living in Slough. I've seen reports of police activity arresting the kerb crawlers recently, where they named and shamed them.

No, the area I'm considering does not have streetwalkers as far as I know.

And finally, please can everyone stop being so uber sensitive? I have no prejudices against working ladies working in hotels and I don't see how what I have asked could be seen to cause offence.

As mentioned already here, it happens in many upmarket areas in London, as well as the surrounding suburbs in the home counties. I for one had probably my most memorable 3way with 2 fantastic Czech ladies in just such a hotel, in a town in Berkshire.

Since I moved to London, I've almost entirely only lived in one county, but now am considering moving to a completely different part of London in a different county. I'd say that it should be quite understandable that I have no feel for that place, and am naturally cautious so I'm trying to research it. I think I already feel that there would be no problem, except potentially for my bank balance, if I were to move to this area, as my hobby might increase.

Kayak I think your feeling is probably right in terms of the crime etc, but depending on your family circumstances you might not want to be drawn into punting in your new local area anyway.

All the best with the move though.

I suppose what might be contentious question is: Are the touring ladies in other areas of Berkshire (eg: Bracknell, Ascot, Bagshot, Windsor, Camberley, Reading etc) of a better class than those to be found in Slough, and also Hounslow? Based on personal experience of mainly the purple site, I'd say unequivocally yes they are.

in my humble experience of london there are 2 seperate things going on

street walkers off the type that used to be neer spitalfields attract a number of unsavoury characters and make the area less suitable for walking around after dark for wives /girlfriends or kids

indies in hotel rooms or well run flats like to be discreat ...and the punters definatly want to be discreat....unless you go looking thier presence they will have zero affect on you or any family /friends

some posters advise never to punt in your own back yard when an oyster card will get you anywhere in london with no parking hassles...or tickets to explain

I'd probably say that that it depends on the girl not the area

In the areas you mention it would seem the girls think they can charge a higher price because of the area but by personal experience I have found some very good girls in Hounslow/ Feltham

What difference does it make how high or low class the touring lady, you are just being snobbish now sorry. A touring lady spends most of her time on the phone, online, shagging, stocking up and lunching or reading between clients. The crime rate would be no different to a girl who pins 500 tags on herself and only tours in what she classes as exclusive areas than girls who pin realistic tags on herself and tours in an area that she has heard can be a good touring location. So its not the selling of sex on your doorstep its the type of girl selling it sequestered away in her hotel room. What difference does it make weather she is banging away in a holiday inn or an upmarket hotel? If you are going to have issues it should be across the board re indies.

There are indies touring in every town in this country so the only place to move to to be away from them would be the countryside...and even then you just cant be sure...we are every where...beware lol.xx

Please dont take this personally, as you said, you were hoping for opinions and this is just mine.

I wouldnt want to live in a streetwalkers area/redlight district as i have children but if there were indies shacked up in the local travel lodge it wouldnt bother me in the slightest tbh.x

Yes you're right, but I draw a distinction to independents like you, who have been in this industry for a long time, and are dependable and can be held in high regard, and the kind of independents that one finds popping up and disappearing on the purple site, typically from continental Europe. They, while often are appealing, are generally so "hit and miss", so unreliable, so "here today, gone later today", and you can't be assured of good service with them, because they're not in it for the long game, like you are.

I don't take any offence, and as I've said, I don't wish to move away to somewhere that there are no Indies. As it happens, where I live now is quieter, "indie - wise", to where I'm considering, which is what I found thought provoking. But now I have no reservations - truth be told though, I'd prefer it if the indies were all mostly like yourself. I know what I'm talking about, I punt around here, Heathrow, Berkshire, North Surrey etc. If I trawl on the purple site, then the amount of Indies that have no feedback, with profiles that have been set up with less care (and why bother to take time to make a great profile when you're only going to be gone in 2 weeks?) than say "Sensual Scarlett" of Taplow, is probably 90%. So in other words I'm guaging that 10% of the Indie ladies out there in my areas of choice are high calibre, and worth their fees, the other 90% are a gamble. Does that make me a snob? No worries.

Me, no, I wouldn't be put off atall! I rather think, however, that I wouldn't bonk next door - could lead to complications. Where, actually, I'd see it as an advantage, just so long as I could have come by the information "innocently" would be in negotiating with the vendor / landlord! "Well, yes, it is, superficially, quite a nice property, but my wife was concerned about the report in the Isleworth Courrier (or whatever other rag) about the trafficking case in the next road....."

And, yes, if I was thinking of moving anywhere, whether concerned about WG, Used Car Dealers, or (the ultimate ghastly neighbour) tallow renderers, I'd certainly look at the on-line crime stats - burglary in particular!

well you see I wouldnt of classed myself as high class when i was working, i held the normal indie banner with pride, I think i offered a good service but not for a high price. It took a good long while for me to get any feedback on ** though so anyone judging me on that score would have deemed me possibly not very good considering how long i was on there with no feedback.

As you have re worded it to mean ladies who offer a good service as oppose to the ones who are not then no, thats not snobbish, just sensible.

and thankyou by the way ^_^

I've never thought about it but I can say that the majority of WG's in my city seem to stay in new developments in the rougher areas but I doubt it's a sound judge of the quality of an area.

My thoughts exactly.

Forget the WL index, just check the LOCATION as a whole.

Walk around, get a feel for it, check other sources, ask an independent property agent or surveyor for an evaluation, if you want.

Au contriare. I have considered moving town/area just to be in a place with hot working girls.

I would move to some place like Frankfurt or BAngkok if I werent such a homely guy.
