Is Punting Good For The Economy?

19 posts in this topic

so we go to whoever and hand over our £120 or whatever and have a good time.

the lady has £120 which she then spends on leccy, food, shoes, bondage kits etc.

so her shops get the money and so it goes on.

but if i were to divert our punting budgets to buying flashy tellys and other imported stuff most of the money would leave the UK economy.

so I would argue that punting is better for the economy then shopping.

Not much to discuss really, is there Cov? Of course it's good for the economy and I was discussing this with my hairdresser a while ago. We're just part of a chain that keeps the economy moving.

I have no idea what a WG spends the money on for definite though. Some EE WGs have told me they save as much as possible to finance their future in their home country. I imagine many do spend it to pay their bills and buy food.

Presumably we all have to spend our money on feeding and clothing ourselves/our families and basic living, even if we use any surplus differently?

It was the 'I imagine many' bit that I was responding to!

This industry is a major part of this country's black economy, very little ends up in the coffers of the Inland Revenue, there is no VAT on punting and only a small proportion of girls pay any tax at all.

The Eastern European girls put very little back into the economy, their object is to take as much money as possible back to their country of origin.

That was because i dont know what others do for definite. They might have a job and use their wages from that to pay for food and bills and save any earnings from being a WG.

I wonder what proportion of WGs are British, and what proportion pay tax on their income. I would guess less than 25% of WGs are British, and probably about 50% of those pay tax on their income, so very little of punter's spending goes into the British Government's coffers or the general British economy.

Having said that, if instead we were to spend our money on foreign holidays, imported electrical goods or imported cars, it would be much the same story.

I am probably as guilty as any having spent very little on British WGs in recent years, with Poland, Romania, Russia, India and Latvia figuring high in the list of my exported £. I can only list 2 British WGs whom I would like to see at the moment, but I can name 3 Romanian, 2 Latvian, 1 Polish, 2 Indian and 1 Russian whom I would happily see today. I find Thai and Chinese too transient for repeat visits.

I expect most of the Indian WGs spend most of their money over here, as most are British born, or intend to stay here long term, unlike the EE girls, who seem to want to make a few quid, and set themselves up for a better life back in their home countries.

Even is earnings are kept in bank accounts as savings, the banks will circulate them through investements, loans etc so all money stays in the economic flow in one way or another. The only time this would not happen would be if I kept the money in piles under the mattress, which I doubt many escorts do.

Well the lady I saw yesterday was going home to do her accounts and check she had the readies to pay the Revenue when the New Year payment comes due.

I guess my contribution will go to paying down the deficit.

Interesting use of the words "probably as guilty as any", i dont feel even one percent guilty as i punt for VFM and whether i fancy a WG or not, her being a Brit or not is irrelevant to me. My primary reason to punt is for fun, not to help the economy, i already do that in many many other ways, in fact they get more than their pound of flesh out of me. ;):)

No doubt in France and Italy, the punters would be francophiles/italinophiles and xenophobes, as those two countries seem to only buy cars from their own country. I do feel that I am not helping the British economy much by using mainly EE WGs, but the fact is that the type of WG, quality, and service they provide suits my tastes better. (Whoops, just thought of another Polish WG I would add to my "give her one today" list).

Similarly the British building trade should be ashamed of itself, as the average British tradesman is inferior in many ways to the EE tradesmen for attitude, and hard work ethic. I know of many EE tradesmen who would put their British counterparts to shame.

Decades ago I became aware of a colossal amount of money earned in Blighty being routinely sent/taken out to countries far and wide (and close by!!). What the 'drag factor' may be on our economy and how we set about the imbalance so caused due to our need for healthy foreign currency reserves while sterling is gushing out, I've no idea. But it would be interesting to get some update on an estimated amount and an experts view on its impact on the UK economy.

With that in mind when I began punting I tended to go for the UK girls, in the first instance it was also because there were more about in the punting wilderness where I live, but even since reconciling myself to having to sometimes make journey's for punts, only once have I strayed from the UK line (and quite a few years ago), and that was due to a failed appointment in London. Rather than waste an entire day's travelling I went for a Plan B who turned out to be a delightful Latvian lady, courtesy of Agency Touch of Class. I must admit, she was good enough to ease my macro-economic conscience!! :P

Maybe we should be pumping our pounds as well as other things, into the Greek economy, and possibly the Italian and Spanish economies, to prevent the collapse of the Euro, which no doubt would have a knock on effect on the British economy.

As letting many EE countries join the EEC seems to have brought an influx of Baltic, Romanian, and Polish WGs, if we let Ukraine into the EEC, that would have a knock on effect on knocking shops in London.

On that basis, could we let Singapore into the EEC please?

I should imagine that the vibrator, lingerie, bikini waxing and fake nail industries are doing well but not sure how much of the rest of the money is staying or leaving the UK economy. :P

I just punt for fun and don't really consider the effect on the UK economy. Most of the WGs I see are British born or are European and longer term UK residents.

Maybe we should follow David Cameron's advice on 2012 being such a big/patriotic year with the Olympics/Queen's Jubilee etc and start a 'Shagging British' campaign to stimulate the UK economy? ;)

I like that idea, 'Shag British' - are you Bob Crow in disguise?

However, there's one big drawback, which is that there are some very lovely non-brits around at the moment, one of which I've already booked for my first punt of the new season. Maybe if I ask her to spend the money in Harrods? Oh, hold on, I think that's flawed!

Follow Camerons advice, i would rather sit next to Stevie Wonder driving me in the fast-lane of the M1 than follow any advice given by that absolute grade A tool.

When a city has a sex industry, it pulls in visitors, each day punters come into edinburgh to visit the parlours, and at week-ends the lapdancing bars can be busy with stag nights. So in that sense sex is good for the economy. Typically labour and the feminists are against the sex industry.
