Are You A Parlour Punter? Agency? Walk Up? Indie? Or A Punter For All Seasons?

39 posts in this topic

I'm strictly an indie punter - I look for a good independant girl with her own place, preferably - or maybe hotel meet. It seems the best way to keep it all discrete.

I hate the thought of a parlour or walk up - seeing other punters or go betweens.

I used an agency a couple of times in Nottingham in the past - expensive and poor results.

With independants you can do the up front research and maximise your chances of a good, private punt

I've used parlours a fair bit but it's purely for the basics - oral (covered) and shag. 20 minutes for £30 to £40. In and out, job done, satisfied.

But I see independents when I want some lovin'. :)

Been through the whole spectrum.....now pretty much split between independents and agencies....although have to say that due to the rise in quality of some parlours up and down the country must give them credit for raising the bar....

I've had a couple of dalliances with a parlour, which was certainly a vfm deal (and a well-run parlour will manage things so punters don't run into each other on the premises), but the vast majority of my appointments have been with independents. I've never used an agency.

Seeing a girl in her own place gives a nice, relaxed and natural-feeling atmosphere - which I really enjoy. Being able to deal with the lady direct minimises any possible misunderstandings as well.

Having had the 'indie experience' now, I don't think I'd return to walk-ups (which I used in my youth). HoD seems a far better proposition - much nicer surroundings...and you know exactly who's going to be behind the bedroom door, which could be a bit of a lottery in my day!

I used to visit parlours, but I have since found that the warmth of the meeting as well as the much more personal and relaxed atmosphere of meeting an indie in her flat/house (or wherever) far, far outweighs any additional financial costs

Back in the 80s, that was the easiest way to make contact with escorts. The arrival of the internet has given me access to many indie ladies whom I'm sure I wouldn't have known even existed before.

I have tried all these plus parties and in London at least Agencies are greedy arseholes so i wont go through them nowadays, i have no interest in Walk-Ups but will go to a Parlour if they have good WGs at a reasonable to me price. I most often punt with Indies and at parties. Incalls only.

That depends where you punt, in London the parlours near me charge more than Indies in the same or local areas who offer the same services. Its now a myth that all parlours are the cheaper option over an Indie.

Never been to a walk-up but all the others.

Agencies are generally hit and miss in my experience, and therefore quite an expensive gamble.

Parlours, once you know the best places, are ideal. 80% of my punts are in parlours.

Indies are probably the best, most reliable option but usually depend on being able to pre-plan exact times so not always ideal.

HoD seems a far better proposition - much nicer surroundings...and you know exactly who's going to be behind the bedroom door, which could be a bit of a lottery in my day!

Not disagreeing but isn't HoD an agency? Perhaps it is a parlour, but perhaps the line is blurry. :)

Anyway, I have used all of the above plus more. By this I mean the various ways of hooking up abroad. The strangest was getting a taxi back from a pole dancing club. The cab already had a passenger. She was not from the club, but she gave me her number ... and this led to a (paid) hook up the next day.

I'll say a good word for agencies. There are some that give value for money. They give me a certain confidence. I get the variety that I seek, but with less risk that it is a total scam. Not that many indies are, but every new one is a step into the unknown.

I don't think they qualify as an agency - they've certainly got a number of ladies on their books, as it were, but if you were to visit them then you'd only be able to see one (or both, if you were feeling particularly vigorous!) of the two girls who were working there on that day.

to be honest, i preferred indis because its less nerve racking and more discrete, but i think parlours have more beautiful women and now ive seen how classy parlours can be i think im a convert to parlours. Perhaps there are some beautiful indis that ive not had the pleasure of meeting yet tho so ill keep an open mind. If anyone knows any truely stunning indis pls pm me details. Thanks

I wouldnt rule out walk ups..

I met my regular from a walk up, 3 years later Im still making my bookings to see her.

And my second most seen regular I met via a walkup till she left....

Obviously these days and being in MK, the prime MK parlour places are so busy that walkups have died out so havent done them for ages....

Living in MK obviously I'm a parlour punter.. Well indies are pretty much dying out here due to the MK parlours monopoly and ** is too risky anyway. and theres no agencies...

Personally, I prefer the indy experience, cos I prefer longer bookings... The downside of a parlour is not being able to escape the claustraphobia of the bedroom and have it feel more of a romantic encounter than a "heres a bed, it a paid shag" experience. With parlours, obviously you cant leave the bedroom... even on 3 or 4 hour bookings I have to stay in the room. And hearing other punters and girls around and hearing their squeaky bed springs.. (luckily it only last a few seconds thou :P ). With parlours you book the time, turn up, pay, do the time and leave ..

Most memorable have actually been the indy punts and the agency girls.... as they have been more relaxing. Key memories for them is leaving the bedroom after having sex and heading to the kitchen or lounge for a drink or smoke to relax, having a chat to recover, having a good kiss and cuddle and then being led by the hand back to the bedroom.... ;) It feels more like a real date and more relaxing then a parlours "book, turn up on time, shag, leave" encounter.....

Only time I visit parlours is if i'm in the North West (Sandys). Otherwise usually indies. More recently though the last few wg's i've met have all been indies on tour working from hotels - I guess you get to a point where the local wg's are not appealing any more and more variety is sought!

End of the day you do what you feel comfortable with - i'm used to visiting Sandys now but the first time was quite nerve racking. Visiting indies in hotels was also nerve racking but you get used to these things and it eventually falls into your comfort zone. Never experienced a walk up so cannot comment and there aren't that many good agencies near where I live, but the couple of times i've used them it hasn't been great.

A parlour is an incall venue that you go to and see whichever girls are working there that day. You can book in advance or there are some where you can just turn up on the day.

Agencies have a number of girls on their roster and you book the escort of your choice for either an incall or outcall appointment on the day of your choice via them. It's sort of like booking an indie girl through a third party. A number of indie escorts are also on agencies' books. The agency obviously takes a fee for the booking, so it's worth checking if the girl you've chosen also works as an indie - I've seen differences of up to £100 per hour depending on whether you book direct or through an agency!

Well, that's how I understand the difference anyway.

A Parlour provides the premises for WGs to work out of, an Agency often doesnt. Edited by smiths

i agree with this post. Problem with parlours is you feel rushed. I want to enjoy talking to the wg, cuddling up and chatting, maybe grab a bite to eat etc. But isnt the problem still the same with an indi? You'd still have time limits based on what you've paid.

From what ive read on this forum, indis giving u free time is rare and not something u shud ask for or expect, right?

Yes indeed, well described.

Indie escorts can be more flexible with their time, dependant on any other bookings they may have arranged for that day of course. But, as you say, 'free time' isn't something you should expect. As clients, we should keep to the time that we've booked and respect that the ladies' time is valuable. By the same token, escorts should do the same thing for us (and, in my experience, they do) . If we all do that then everybody's happy and there may well be room for a little drift, timewise...just don't take the mickey :)

Personally, as Overworked has said, I find great value in being able to see a girl in an environment that allows you to move from a living room to the bedroom and back again - rather than being confined to the boudoir. That may not be as important to you, though. Horses for courses, innit?

Yes you should get and still get the time you paid for no matter who the girl is working from. I wouldnt expect free time and havent got it..

But with an indy or agency girl theres a lot more freedom. You can both nip to the kitchen, bathroom from a shower , lounge to relax a bit inbetween round......have a bite to eat or drink. have a smoke..... I remeber leaning out the hotel room window havingg a smoke alongside an indy in an MK hotel both stark naked... wonder how many people looked up.....

With a parlour.....your stuck in the room. you cant do that......otherwise you'll be bumping into other punter and other girls who are doing bookings or maids taking them..

a nice indie with her own flat is always best

Never used an agency, tried a few independants in flats, yet to have one decent experience going down that road, one girl hopped off in mid blow job, to answer the delivery man. So for me its the parlour, I like the choice of girls, the different house styles, I find seeing my fellow punters interesting, in some parlours you can hear them at it from the changing rooms, which I like as well., I like starting with a shower, the walk to the room, the post shag shower, etc, the parlour gossip. If you wish you can come to an arrangement with a girl, and you can start going to her flat, its cheaper, and can be interestiing, learn about a new part of town. Of course that doesnt suit every punter. Edinburgh is great if you punt, only thing lacking is a party scene, at a realistic price.. I dont pay more than 70, and often less, unless you are seeking elaborate choreography, no need to pay big bucks.
