Are Wgs Overpriced?

108 posts in this topic

I only punt, perhaps, once every couple of months and recently I've been going down the sensual massage route, rather than full service, but in looking to book a punt I've noticed that prices seemed to have shot up a fair bit. A half hour punt now seems to be £80 with most WGs that I contact from Vivastreet. It was only a few months ago that they were all quoting £60.

I know that we're asking them to do something quite 'big', but £80 for 30 minutes is a bit over the top, isn't it? Or am I just too tight?

I wouldn't mind if they were all stunners, but most look like me in a dress.

if you think that's expensive move to Queensland (Oz) - it's a bargain. And if you look just a tad harder you'll find there are also loads of stunners out there!

I'll probably get slated for this but if you think £80 is too expensive you need to find a new hobby.

Depends, I've recently seen this discuss elsewhere. Some ladies charge a higher rate for half hours because they simply don't want to work on a high volume basis, or because they find half hour bookings can take up the same time as one hour.

New girls often set their fees according to the 'going rate', so they see ladies setting themselves at that level and copy.

I personally struggle with VS, their fees are comparitively high and they do not let you use any useful information or photos showing anything in the slightest bit alluring. Most of the guys who contact me from there are looking for something either a little cheaper, or who aren't familiar with the scene (late night emails asking if I'm available now, or offering themselves to me for free!).

eighty quid every couple of months...?

is that 10 pounds a week...or a quid a day

if we all gave up drinking expensive coffee at starbucks we could punt more freely

And what exactly do you look like Bob?

The price is the price, if you cannot find what you want at the price you are expect to pay then yes you need to adjust your expectations.

I want an Aston Martin DB9 but I think they are priced over the top, so I'm forced to exercise my consumer choice and drive something cheaper.

Quite right, half hour punts are often pro-rata more than hour punts and have been for years, an hour is my minimum. :)

Back home in N.Ireland when I started escorting three years ago I charged £120 per half hour and £200 per hour. Now my friends and I charge £100 per half hour and £160 per hour. No one has a problem with paying it, infact we have each been tipped upwards of £20 and been bought bottles of wine, perfume and chocolates and have a high list of regulars. I have noticed on the English escort sites that the prices are considerably lower. Natalie Xx

As some of the ladies have suggested here I think bob maybe is a little bit on the stingy side here.London only,most parlours charge between 50-80 per half hr.lots of indies don't do them,due to not wanting high volume work I imagine but those that do tend to charge similar rates.

I think it's a false economy,the 30 min appt.better to go for an hour,it works out at the same or cheaper over the long term and I think you connect with the girls better and therefore it's a better time overall.

One last thing,you said sensual massage is your thing,each to their own,but looking at the sensual massage thread,guys are paying on average 30-40 for the massage,another 20-30 for hr,maybe another 20 for topless,maybe 50 all I'm for b2b...it seems to me that that kind of service gets expensive very quickly.

I hope some of the ladies will back me here but lots of them are good at massage,some of them have professional qualifications in it.I'd rather an hour of sex with an escort and maybe 5-10 mins at the end of decent massage than all that hassle the sensual massage boards seem to suggest is commonplace

Why would you want to punt with someone who looks like you in a dress, that would ensure i definitely didnt punt with her and ensure i left as i am an ugly bastard and i have to fancy a WG to be able to punt with her.

My hour full sex punts have gone down in price this year in London but as Wyke says the price is the price, perhaps consider posting a thread on the Massage board and see if that gets any response that suits you. I most certainly wouldnt pay 8p let alone £80 for any non medical condition massage through my private health insurance and can get a full sex hour for under that or around that but to answer your title, if you cut your cloth according to what you are prepared to pay no WGs arent overpriced, in real terms my punting is less now than a year ago and ten years ago. I cant say that about many other things. I very fortunately dont live in a punting desert though. :)

Just as an idea,some of the girls working at hod,divas mk etc work at egos too and they are excellent masseurs.I saw Sally recently for an hour at divas,she made me cum twice,was up for trying a 3rd one before the hr ended(but little ranger wasn't sadly) and then at my behest, spent a good 5ish minutes getting some of the kinks out of my lower back and legs,courtesy of my last rugby game(or beasting as I prefer to call them) until the time was up.all for £120.much more vfm and safer than some dodgy advert off vivastreet.

But that's my opinion.

I think this depends on what you can afford. If you don't have much in the form of expendable funds left at the end of each month, you are most certainly not being tight.

Although I have never checked what other ladies charge, I suspect there is something to suit everyone's budget and taste out there.

For that kind of service and the looks you describe, I would agree that is a very high fee. Considering that builders cost on average £150/day for a full day of hard labour, I think they would all happily convert to giving sensual massage if the market was there for them.

Shop around... You can find some girls within budget.

I found some stunner for £60 an hour, and other £60 for 30 mins. Havent booked yet, but will see them when I get my next pay check.

Well, I know the £60 for 30 min one is good because she has about 20 FRs on this website, have seen pics of her and is from the famous House of Divine. So hopefully it lives up to the reputation. But you're right, maybe it doesnt.

The £60 an hour one is a no name on purple site but she still looks pretty and has good feedback...

"Are Working Girls Overpriced?"

No.

I wouldn't have sex with me for £100-150, or anything like it.

It's impossible to say what is an appropriate price in the abstract and people will always tell you that the market decides. But this implies that the market is a perfect mechanism and that there is perfect competition. If there was perfect competition and the market was reliable you'd hardly have girls down Soho doing the business for £30 and some other lady two blocks away doing it for £150. All I can say is that over a considerable amount of punting through the years I have never found that higher prices are any guarantee of anything or even likely to anticipate better quality. I live in the Eurozone and would never at this stage pay more than €100 for a punt, and usually pay €80 (around £70). If I was paying more I'd be punting less often and obviously I prefer to punt more often. But it is amazing how many punters actually defend higher prices and seem to want to pay more!

To the OP, yes WGs are massively over priced IMHO :-) We should start a Punters union & petition all the agencies to lower prices, perhaps even a price cap at say, £60ph fully inclusive. I would be happy to be self-elected leader & Chief of Quality Control to ensure standards never slip for members :-) Thoughts?

Good post and spot on with your last sentence in my view, i have mentioned that myself on here before. I wonder if they have the same attitude with their business dealings outside of punting. As it is punting is a great example of the free market and long may that continue.

SOME WG's are overpriced, House of Divine charge £60 for 30 minutes in the middle of London, pretty girls, nice clean premises ----- the simple answer is shop around, it is your money, you are the boss.
