What You Have Done?

29 posts in this topic

Yesterday I was walking around Soho with the horn big time. I'd been with Emma, my sexy work colleague all day - tight jeans, cotton 'shaping' jumper, posh vowels, flirty; instant stirring where it counts. I wanted some fun and in days of yore would have headed to Soho Cottage. What I didn't want was (1) a depressing walk up experience or (2) a Chinese massage or (3) to have to leave Soho/Charing Cross Rd/Shaftesbury Ave area to visit an escort in Bayswater/Lancaster Gate/Earls Court, because I had another appointment in an hour.

Basically I wanted a girl-next-door GFE experience for 30 mins costing about £80/£100. What would you have done?

Probably head up to Spearmint Rhino, blow £100 there, and leave even more horny!

What would I have done? Simples! 70a Berwick Street may be a walk-up, but depressing its never been for me.

Who you rate there at the minute? I've had some really disappointing experiences in the past.

Not punted on the hoof as this can lead to bad punts. So if i hadnt of done my research i would of had a wank and if still felt like punting later booked into a party. I am happy to wait if it means a good punt is available later rather than just taking a pure gamble.

Well you did ask what would I have done !

I hate soho walkups personally and the standard of London phone box card booked punts has drastically declined.....so personally I'd have waited, paid the extra and gone with a tried and tested agency favourite

But I see where youre coming from

There used to be some fantastic girls operating out of Cleveland Street and the nearby environs,but this was at least 5 years ago and sadly all the best ones seem to have moved on

Big big shame :(

I know where you're going with this, because you were a big Soho Cottage fan. However they are no longer there, and that does leave a hole in the (Soho) market. I never punt in Soho any more, so I can offer no advise, except to say that if you can get up to Goodge St/Warren St there are some nice-looking girls - English MILF Anna, for example.

I would have disappeared to the gents and had a quick J Arthur. Then carried on as usual and booked a class punt for as soon as I could make the time. That way the looks and thoughts of "Emma" would still be fresh in the mind.

That's exactly the point, I guess. In Soho the choice has become very limited with the disappearance of Soho Cottage/Les Girls and similar establishments and I think that's a real shame. Let's hope something comes along to fill gap soon.

Southern Man, could you tell me about Anna?

100% I would have made a discreet pass/ suggestion to the lovely, tight sweatered Emma.... :P

Leaving just enough wriggle room that it could easily have been put down to a misunderstanding.!! a misconstrued remark ! ;)

Why be with an uber-foxy lady and take a risk on a walk up (potential) dog ??

Either Emma...............or back to the hotel and an appointment with the Five Fingered Widow !

Answer: Booked a favourite £150/hr agency girl for later that day

This, presumably, is the "free market" - I want something for £80-£100, "no problem,guvnor, here's one for £150! :cool:

A good example of why the punting market defies categorisation.

Her details are you know where - I haven't seen her yet myself, but I've spoken to her and she seems really nice. I'll make a note to let you knowas and when I see her. Or, you could do the same for me.

I checked her out there. Not really my cup of tea, but thanks for the info.

:D

The reason I posted that seemingly odd response was because I've often found myself in the same position as the OP, in the West End/Central London fancying a quickie but unable to find what I was after due to a dearth of choice or lack of last minute availability

Most times I've decided against risking disappointment taking a phone box card punt or a punt in a chinese 'health shop' rip off joint, and I detest Soho walkups, so.....horny as I was I let my upper brain do the thinking and booked a tried and tested, but pricier, favourite for later. Rather than pay less for what would most likely be a rushed and dissatisfying experience.

It also leaves you with something really nice to look forward to later that day and you can enjoy that thrill of anticipation until the time comes

Do people do this in the toilets?

I can't imagine a less erotic and stimulating environment!

Given a stiffy in the Soho area, I would go straight for a walk up; at least one would be in a warm, dimly lit environment with a lady.

You miss my point Pollyp. Like BillGoldberg, I detest walkups. I used to feel exploited and degraded when I used them in the past and therefore haven't done so for years. The point of this post really was to point out/mourn that a whole strata of activity in Soho has vanished - ie the private flat where you'd pay approx £80 for 30 mins/£140 per hour - and to ask how did this happen when they served such a useful purpose? I know in previous posts there's been discussion about Les Girls/Soho Cottage's pricing, and the declining quality of their girls in recent years, but seems to me both problems are solvable.

I also posed this question in the hope someone might know some trick or other I've missed in Soho?!

For various reasons, not least Westminster council, the sex trade in Soho is in long, slow, inexorable decline. Where once you had Les Girls, now you have HOD Sth Ken. Also you have the rise of the independant. Once upon a time Anabel Harvey, Dirty Pretty Thing or Kitty Sweet might have worked in Les Girls, now they are indies.

The thing that really fascinates me about the London punting scene (apart from gratuitous sex with gorgeous ladies) is the way that it has evolved over the last 30 years - there would be a fantastic PhD thesis there for someone.

The walk-ups won't disappear tomorrow, but no new ones will open - ultimately they are doomed. By the same token, any new establishment like Soho Cottage/Les Girls will open outside Soho, and nowadays be a little more upmarket, with a wider range of services than SC/LG used to offer or indeed allow.

We are in a golden age of punting overall, but as punters we need to adapt to changing market in order to get the best of it.
