A Question For You All ......

47 posts in this topic

I post on a few sites and have noticed recently a lot of negative things being said about adult work. I have myself used the site then decided to many negatives for me ie lots of bareback offered and lots of timewasters. Before I go further I know the market is hard out there for all girls and I also know that there are genuine lovely girls on there some of whom I know. My question is to the girls why do you advertise on somewhere that seems to condone bareback and to the guys why with so many let downs etc do you bother.

Those of us who use Another Website, do so in the knowledge that it has problems. But, as you say, it also has a good number of gems.

Like a good number of regular posters, but not all of the newbies, I do a considerable amount of research into my punting. This tends to weed out the dodgy ones, eliminates any mention of BB, sorts out those who move around etc. Yes, this research may not be fool proof, but since it is part of the attraction of punting I am prepared to give it a go.

BTW quite a few people who advertise there are also regulars on here. Should we tar them with the same brush?

Hi Paul trust me I am not tarring everyone with the same brush I am just trying to understand the logic of why people do what they do. Thankyou for your answer.

I advertise there and have for a while, although when I first saw the front page I swore I'd never go near it - it's been cleaned up a lot since then.

I don't see how they are 'condoning' anything - it's an advertising site where those offering services set up their own ads and can tick boxes to show what's on offer - the site itself has no influence on this. They could also be said to be 'condoning' OWO, hardsports, fisting and tie and tease, which are all other perfectly legal services that I don't offer; what other adults do with their bodies and how they advertise it is none of my business, and none of Adultwоrk's either. The wailing and gnashing of teeth which starts every time BB is mentioned here is just silly when it's more than likely everybody we meet has unprotected sex with somebody else, even if it's just their regular partner.

In terms of why people use the site, I can only imagine they do because it's free, relatively user-friendly when you get used to it and widely used around the UK - the only time it really gets me any work is when I'm away from home, but for that alone I find it a valuable part of my advertising. It's little use for me when I'm not touring, and I would notice very little difference in my bookings if I didn't bother with it then but I've met some of my nicest regulars from there and it hasn't done me any harm at all :).

Hey Shelley when you coming to see us London boys again with a tour.

I also do research - thats how come I found you - and how lovely you are.

BB is an immediate no no

I also discount any ladies on ** without photos or kissing (but some say they do it but then don't)

Read reviews and any no shows are a further filter.

Had a coupleof bad ones but also as Paul said some lovely ladies

It really hacks me off when people get all sniffy about A W. I have always used it and have had great business from it. Even now with my own website and links on other sites 90% of my business comes from there (I ask my clients where they found me). I'm not keen on being lumped in with the skanks and rip off merchants but I don't feel I have any choice. Despite what anyone says it is the place to advertise to get business. Anyone have any alternatives?

I actually think its a good thing they allow it be advertised. It helps people decide if that's a risk they are willing to take with a girl if she openly advertises it. I personally won't see any girl for a 2 girl who offers it but on another site, if it's not even an option for then to tick, it narrows my options of being able to choose.

I'm sure some do it and don't openly offer it as a service but I advertise on there - it's not a reflection on me or my profile. If I was advertising on, say a site called Bareback Babes, that would be an entirely different kettle of fish as the whole purpose of the fictional site would be to promote BB.

well, it's free -- it's a useful addendum in which to advertise. i do use **but just get sick of the bloody fakes, multiple profiles and scam profiles etc.

as for bb -- well, this has been done to death (no pun intended ;) ) -- we are all adults here ....

Ive used the other site for 2 years and not had 1 problem. I research each girl I see, I only see girls who have a history, who have a phone number, who allow all feedback, who dont charge for extras, who dont have discretionary extras, who dont do B. B.

How do they condone it? Allowing people to advertise something isn't condoning it, it's just letting people put what they want it their advertising provided it's legal. 'Condoning' it would imply that they recommend, advocate or otherwise suggest that advertisers would get more business if they offer it, which they do not - there is nothing there whatsoever which attempts to influence peoples service choices in any way, more than likely because doing so wouldn't make them any more money unlike plugging the featured bits.

What other sites want to allow on their pages is likewise up to them, and if they want to get prissy and pretend everybody always uses a condom all the time in the paid sex scene and bareback never goes on that's their lookout too; it could equally be said that the other sites are kidding themselves. Plus if some punters want to seek out providers who offer unprotected services, surely they have every right to do this? I'd rather they could contact these ladies easily than pestering me, apart from anything else.

One of the big risks in using A W as the main method of advertising is the consequences of the site being taken down by one or more of the various organisations that control our lives such as HMRC or the Old Bill. the old school escorts know the value of spreading the advertising and also what is an appropriate level for the services and location. Imagine the effect of 10,000 escorts suddenly having their only method of advertising removed. :unsure:

Amy I'm not getting at you at all I just asked a question and yes if they allow bareback to be advertised they are condoning it sorry but that is how it is.

Someone has said about the 10,000 advertising well I was just asking a question and am in my rights to do so. I like anyone else can post and ask cant I?

Shelly, I am inclined to side with you on this issue and I certainly would not want to associated with some of the practices that are promoted on there. The whole thing is a bit to tacky for my liking and when there are girls on there displaying photos with ulcerated limbs from intravenous injecting and others with tags around their ankles I fell it is not a thing I would want to be associated with.

I don't condone bareback, I simply chose to maintain high standards myself - which I see as the positive, constructive way forward. Ignoring it doesn't make it go away.

Why do I advertise on **? Because it’s free and has a good search facility. I did think long and hard about advertising there though in case I was considered guilty by association, but I like to think that most men can separate the professionals from the shysters. I figure that my PN reviews and website give validity to my profile on there; it’s obvious I’m not a fly by night or into unsavoury practices.

There may be girls that offer it, but it isn't compulsory?

That's OK Shelly, I didn't think you were and I just think we're approaching it from opposite sides, that's all :). I don't believe that anybody should be able to dictate which services anybody offers bar they themselves; not punters, other providers and certainly not a directory owner - whilst I appreciate that the directory owner is perfectly entitled to decide on the content of the site they own, I actually much prefer a site which allows people to advertise freely, particularly when we're the ones paying. As I said, they are 'condoning' lots of services I don't offer, but if I changed my mind I don't really consider it within their remit to tell me I can't, and I think one of the reasons the site has become so huge is because it does offer lots of different options across the spectrum (plus all the webcamming and so on which I have no interest in either). I've no interest in what other people are doing, since it doesn't affect me anyway.

Like Lara and Ruth, I don't think it matters so much where you advertise, but how - if you write a nice clear profile aimed at the sort of punters you want to attract, you're no less likely to find them on there than other sites. I don't put my proper number on there because it definitely makes the idiot calls go through the roof, but most of those callers aren't real punters and just trawling the site because it's the easiest place to get lots of numbers from. I don't get any more actual timewasters or no shows from there than anywhere else, and the only thing that is markedly more frequent is the number of stupid enquiries (and the Block button is great for dealing with them).

Like Lara, because it is free easy to use and for the guys if they use their thinking brain it can be successful.

I do read some of the profiles of girls the advertise bb and guess what ? they have many thousand of hits so who reads them and why ?

Just looking or is it what is required .? :wacko:

i have met many many very nice men from this site with very few problems so please dont condemn it because it doesnt suit your way of thinking

Bareback no way for me

I agree you Lara and Strawberry, Amy too, I have my own rules, standards and does and don'ts. They don't include BB, neither do they include water and hard sports plus other practices which some people who advertise on here as well as there do offer.

Blimey, several threads in this one.

First off bareback, it happens, I don't do it but it certainly happens. As with everything in prostitution I think the best way forward is to allow it to be openly advertised, then we can avoid it. The worst thing is to push it underground. I think its a real shame that it can't be mentioned in field reports here, daylight being the best disinfectant. But thats off topic.

As for ** generally it should have everything, free to use, list of likes, messaging system, two way feedback. If somebody had the technical know how to set up a rival it could beat ** easily. The owners have got greedy and taken their eye off the ball with private galleries. ** started out as a tiny website and grew through all of the above advantages. Any rival with their focus on customer service could wipe it out, they really could.

Fortunately i havent had that many let downs by using that site. I continue using it as its the best location tool there is in my experience and thats all i use it for, to contact WGs with displayed phone numbers. I believe nothing a profile says as i know from experience that feedback is often manipulated and enjoys lists wrong. So i use it with caution and with a newbie to me punt with a plan B option which doesnt involve double booking ready to walk if necessary. :)

There are always going to be girls who, through desperation, ignorance or coercion offer, BB. I would rather they were upfront about it so the rest of us know to steer clear of them. I wouldn't say the purple site "condones" BB; what it does is make sure the information about sevices is in the open so people can make their own decisions about who to see and who to avoid.

I am totally unaware of this ever happening. This is a scare tactic. If Another Website were able to be removed by HMRC, P C Plod, HH or anyone else then so could this one and a dozen others. I don't know of any such site being removed. Please tell us where and when this has happened.
