Economic Downturn Causes Women To Turn To Prostitution! But....

19 posts in this topic

Hi

I have been reading lots of news on the surging number of women especially now turning to prostitution to earn money due to the economic down turn. If there is an economic down turn then how is it that the guys are able to pay for sex?

There was a newspaper article recently - may have been the DM - saying that young women were turning to prostitution as a way of paying their tuition fees at university.

Only trouble was that the "article" was seriously lacking in hard facts.

Above, bamaash asks where the punters are in an economic down turn. Good point.

As more service providers become available those seeking to purchase that service have a greater choice. Which can mean fewer customers all round or that newcomers have difficulty attracting business. And if we really are in a difficult economic perod the people will be spending less. I think I'm starting to see this. Two examples: last week on a Wednesday lunchtime punt the woman said I was the first that day and had seen only two customers on each of the previous two days and yesterday I was the first that day and the woman had seen no one the day before.

The situation seems to be moving to one where supply begins to exceed demand, and in most normal markets, as competition increases, prices drop.

Somehow I feel this wont happen in the punting market, except perhaps for EE girls who seem ruthless enough to undercut the opposition. UK ladies tend to adopt the 'well, I'm not cutting my prices, I'd rather see less clients'.

While in a way I can understand that stance, let's see more special offers as 30mins free on a 2 hour booking, or even parlours adopting a BOGGOF - buy one girl, get one free.

I'm still firmly of the view that ladies are adept at selling sex, but the majority are crap at marketing themselves to give them an edge over the competition.

EE girls are not "ruthless" ------------- they are simply good business women, better to see 4 punters at £100 an hour than one punter at £150 an hour, they rarely have dusty phones.

2 Punters at £150 is better than 3 Punters at £100. Supply and demand I would have thought. I always preferred those that were in demand and was willing to pay the price.

You will find its an absolute fact there is an economic downturn, its not an "if". I assume you dont follow the news and current events.

The Government tell us that we are out of the recession, total nonsense, the real cuts have not even started yet, there is worse to come, far worse.

As has been said there are only a very small percentage of escorts who put much effort into marketing. A decent website and good photos cost very little in terms of overall annual turnover.Specila offers, keen pricing and loyality bonuses all help as well.

As has been said many times with escorts the fee and the quality of the experience are not related. There are many very good £100 ph girls and equally many poor £150 ph girls and of course vice versa. I would much rather have 3 sessions with a good £100 ph girl than 2 with a £150 ph girl who was equally good.

I do think in many areas prices are coming down. You don't see that many escorts advertising at more than £150 ph as you did a few years ago.

What I have noticed in my local city which has few "native" escorts in that we are getting a lot more girls visiting and one has even got a couple of flats she sub lets to girls for a couple of days a week. These visitors are coming from Manchester and Liverpool where presumably there is not enough work due to the large number of WGs there. It is oubviously worth their while travelling 130 miles and hiring a flat or hotel room for a couple of days. Sadly there seem to be fairly average in quality which may be why they are not getting the number of bookings on their home patch!

Would the downturn cause a fall in demand for WGs or would it, as I suspect, create more demand? Many punters are seeking escapism. If your life is pretty dreary and not much fun you are more likely to pay good money for some fantasy. As for finding the money, blokes will simply sacrifice other things to pay for it.

You're basing your question on a mistaken assumption: that WGs and Punters both come from similar backgrounds, and thus will be affected the same way by a recession.

The reality is very different. Most WGs are in low paid employment, study or full-time parenting before they enter the profession, whereas most punters have steady, reasonably- or well- paid jobs.

It's a well-established fact that casual, low paid jobs are the first and worst affected by any economic downturn, so it makes sense that the recession increases supply (of WGs) before it dampens demand (of punters).

You made some very good points here - now many female lawyers are prostitutes on the side

.....but then again what is the point of pornstars doing escorting as well, I mean many of them are highly paid. When I say pornstar, I mean pornSTAR not a $5 ho

Thx

Not necessarily. Although pornstars seem make a lot of money per "scene" (£400-500+ for a few hours'), it often doesn't add up to much over time unless they are under contract to a big producer like Vivid where they have a guaranteed income. They're not dissimilar from non-adult actors in that sense, where a tiny percentage are making a lot of money, and the rest struggle on between jobs - even the seemingly successful ones.

A lot of them in the US make far more money "feature dancing" than they do in actual porn, and I wouldn't be surprised if that spills over into escorting.

Hi

If you have a listen to that video, you hear the woman start talking from about 0:30 seconds - she says that the big players are using mobile phone technology and internet technology in the business. I can understand internet technology but what do they mean about mobile phone technology? Are they talking about answering phone calls via mobile (which I doubt) - s what exactly do they mean?

Thanks

I know you subscribe wrote the book that all prostitutes lie Jim, but I can assure you at £150 an hour phones are not dusty ;) easy to see 4 in a day and turn as many away :cool:

I have noticed some established girls near me discounting their prices and there are some new girls on the market who undercut them. £80 an hour is not uncommon. Unfortunately what most girls seem to have in common is poor management of communications - emails and texts unanswered. I have been trying to book a meeting for tomorrow and none of the three girls I have contacted have got back to me yet. Wish I lived somewhere with a decent parlour scene.

Many profiles at that price level are fakes. Quite often they are private gallery scams (especially if no tel no is displayed). Even those with a gallery and a phone number don't necessarily mean you will meet the girl in the photos. There are gems around at that price level, but be very careful and always start from a position of skepticism. Also, many EE girls may well have popped home for Xmas if their finances and other situations allow it.
