Is Punting At 18-30 Years Old 'normal'? Why Do Young People Punt?

274 posts in this topic

Some people on here are 18,21,23 or slightly older, but the vast majority of PN members seem to be older.

Many say at such a young age you should be able to 'pull for free', yet why do young people turn to escorts?

Me being 20, I only considered punting after I broke up with my GF.

Too many reasons to list: curiosity, looking for an increase in self confidence, attraction to girls from far-away countries, desire to have (121) 'sexual meetings' with different girls, etc.

I don't regret my decision at all, but I don't want to do this all my life of course.

I am now 47 but started punting at 19 when i had girlfriends and relationships as well. I liked and still do the no strings aspect of punting. Unlike some on here i encourage guys to punt and pull, one is guaranteed of course, the other might lead to the thing punting is unlikely though not impossible to provide, mutual love.

In my opinion monogamy as a concept really sucks and is unnatural, i am here to shag around as much as i can, obviously what others do is their business.

So a lack of confidence and self belief might be the reason some guys punt, working very long hours and thus having little social life might be another. What i would advise is while young sow your wild oats and have fun by whatever consentual means possible.

I was 20 and a virgin when I started, the idea of being a virgin at 21 just depressed me too much. In some ways I wish I'd waited until it was with a girlfriend (it was a soho walk up, and not a particularly great one) but then as soon as I did lose it I found myself pulling much more often / having girlfriends.

I only punt when I'm single, but as that's been on and off over the years, and I've never been married, I'm very very grateful to the girls who stop me from becoming ridiculously sexually frustrated and I see no harm in punting whatever age you are, as long as you don't become obsessed with it all. Which admittedly I did at one point (mid-twenties, where I sacrificed my social life for a sexual one) but as long as you can manage it okay it's a great hobby to have!

Pretty much the same as you, started a few years ago when 27 though,not enjoying the dating game at the time. Increased my confidence in the bedroom a ton over these years, but not so much in the dating game but still all good and fun :)

I punted first at 17 and don't really understand why it might be considered odd that younger people would punt. Logically sex drive is highest at that age so I imagine young people punt far more than is generally acknowledged. In my time it was for ease, excitement and experience I suppose, but these days the possibilities for young and old are immense. When I was 17 you could not go on the internet and choose a girl of virtually any physical make-up and ethnic background - the ability to do this makes for brilliant opportunities for men of all ages now. Even at 20 you might be able to 'pull' down at the local pub, but chances are it will not be with a 36DD Russian who'll go down on you within minutes of meeting you.

The only advice I'd give to a young person starting out is that it is a very difficult habit to break and if you ever stop to do the Maths involved over the many years it can be scary.

Hear, hear, Smiths. In fact punting is perfect for young men who may lack bedroom skills and confidence around women. Punting boosts both. Also, of course, they probably won't be married so none of that baggage either unlike with us older guys.

Well I've been punting in my 20s (I'm 29 now) because I just have terrible confidence/social anxiety issues and an inability to approach women (plus I hate bars, pubs etc) - so it's been my only sexual outlet.

In my own expereience, I too started young, in fact most of my early adventures are just a blur (I put it down to temporary memory loss rather then old age), sometimes reading and hearing others life experiences tell's me that maybe I was fortunate in my endeavours with ladies both in and out of the real world....

When I started out the it was simply black and white, whilst in a relationship (no matter how long/short) would never punt, then as the years went by the lines got entwined and more then complex, stilll I enjoyed ever moment of it....we are all individuals and there are thousands of different reasons for each one of us but I tend not to dwelve into that to much...

I almost wanted to write a book but stopped myself short LOL

I must admit I have no idea why people so young 'go a punting'!! During those years I was far too busy getting sex for free to even begin thinking of punting.

Sometimes you just want to be with a woman for a few hours have great sex then go back to your normal day to day life, having a girlfriend or a wife is hard work and some people do not get the sexual favors that they want.

Plus if you go out with a girl in you social circle of friends and you break up with her your friends see you in a different light, so hanging out with a WG is much easier

Also as a younger punter I find when I visit any WG they are happy about how young and fit I am, so I don't think they mind how old you are

No it is not normal and it indicates that something is seriously wrong with your life if it is a regular activity for you in place of a relationship that you are hoping for.

It is certainly no substitute.

I can relate to some of this- started punting in my early 20's yet in that age range had lot of access to girls(students) but my self-confidence/maturity was not as developed then.

I started meeting lot more civvie girls in my mid-late 20's and generally when I was getting sexual fulfilment via a gf then didnt feel a need to see wg's. For me its pure sexual urge that leads me to using wg's, its easy and no commitment.If I happen to 'click' with a wg then thats a bonus but Im not there to gain company or friendship etc With a wg you can be faily open too and potentially 'do' more sexually since some civvie girls can be quite restricted in terms of what they are prepared to do, even the fairly vanilla stuff!! I also like different types of women from different cultures and punting has allowed me to satisfy that need to experiement/try them out so to speak.

also I would take the line of 'pull for free' with a pinch of salt. Some insecure guys feel the need to brag abt inflated numbers of sexual partners to sound more macho when their reality is quite different.

In the last 6 months Ive seen one wg! Thats a new personal best for me lol Ive tried very hard to cut down both for financial reasons but the main one is fear of std's..not so much aids/hiv but the less deadly annoying ones which you can catch more easily etc

I will also not punt if in a relationship but Im not judging anyone here...if I was married and my wife wasnt very sexually active or had much desire for sex....would find that very very difficult to deal with,I need sex regular-ish lol

My reasons are as follows:

I'm too shy and socially awkward to get a real girlfriend

I'm ugly

Punting gives me the oportunity to have sex with women that are waaaay out of my league looks wise, perfect 10's when im more of a 3..

I'm very introverted, I need lots of time and space to spend time alone, having a real/long term girlfriend would take that away from me.

Iv had sex with italian, black, russian and chinese women, probably wouldn't happen if I didnt punt.

Even if I did have the looks/confidence to get a "date" I don't really want to put lots of time effort and money into something that may or may not lead to what I desire (sex) when i can just cut out the faffing about and just pay n go lol

I started at age 22 because it was an easy way for a bloody good time.

In short I thoroughly enjoy doing it.

10 years later I've never looked back and only wish I could punt more often than I do!

In those 10 years have you ever felt the need for a 'normal relationship'?

The ex-client (who is now my boyfriend) is in his late 20s, and was pulling far too many women when he booked me. I asked him why he'd booked me & he said it was the convenience of getting exactly what he wanted, when he wanted.

Now, we're monogamous, spending more time with our families & sorting out everything we need to sort out for our futures. This industry isn't necessarily healthy for all the clients & all the SPs, but I don't think it's wrong.

I've said this before but I'll repeat.

I was a Virgin and I was 28. Wasn't particualrly ugly or good looking. Have a reasonable career. Whilst I had an average social life (was never the heavy drinker a lot of my peers were) and I could talk to girls platonically through work or meeting others GFs etc. I had a real "block" on trying to get into relationships. Or trying to have sex with a girl. Maybe some of my friends knew. Maybe they didn't, I dunno. Certainly I'd get the Gay jibes from others. My inexperience was a HUGE monkey on my back. With hindsight, I inadvertently missed signs from girls I did know who wanted to take things further. And misread the signs that girls didn't want a relationship with me. A few years previous I'd somehow managed to ask 2 girls out in a year (Go me! LOL) both rejected me. Both I'd known for a while too. I figured at that point I was going to die a virgin. So ultimately gave up on the whole idea. Threw myself into my hobbies and meagre club/pub crawls and perved the girls on the dancefloor...

One day I somehow stumbled on an Escort site. Saw a girl. Thought this is the time! Carpe Diem. Took ages to summon up the courage to phone (think we've all been there!) She wasn't working that week. Well there you go I thought. Definetly dying a virgin now. Fate won't even let me pay for it!

6 months later I was away on business. And phoned HOD. An hour later, I was no longer a virgin. Well I guess I still was technically as I never came through sex. I had to wank off over her tits. (I still feel sorry for Lacey now having to endure my idiotic fumblings) Anyway I figured this would give me a new lease of life. Now I would be able to finally get a proper GF. Sex would no longer be a big deal.

But no. 6 months later I booked a London Escort. 8 months later the same girl. 2 months after that the same girl. Then another girl at another agency. Then another attempt at trying to get a GF with the same shit results. And since then I've only ever had sex with Escorts. Albeit not neccesarily regularly (5 years since that time at HOD)

Overall, my sexual experiences have multipled. I've tried all manner of things I know my friends/work colleages can only dream about. I'm much more comfortable around the opposite sex generally. I've learnt a great deal over the years. I'm probably not too bad/ half decent at sex. Probably better than a lot of "civvies" But I still can't crack that nut to get a regular relationship. Makes me sigh a little bit when a new Escort will tell me I'm good looking, or that I must be fighting them off with a stick in my private life. One lovely girl was convinced I must be a "player"

If that were true I wouldn't be here would I?

Would I rather have a normal GF? Yes. Do I expect that to ever happen? Probably not. Do I expect to ever get married. No. Flipside is I look at people I know and very very few of them are truly happy in their relationships. They are forever fighting, or having money problems or being told they can't do X because the other wants to do Y. And that puts me off massively. My Parents must wonder about me LOL. Thankfully my sibling has got 3 kids, so I'm not getting the pressure to produce grandchildren. I did learn to lie when in Interviews though. "I have a GF of X months" I've become sick of the quizzical look you get when you mention you are early 30s and single.

I try not to overanalyse it anymore. I'm sure some will say It's selfish/shallow/whatever, but I'll probably punt forever. Such is life.

Pretty much sums it up. In particularly - "Punting gives me the oportunity to have sex with women that are waaaay out of my league looks wise, perfect 10's"

Personally, I have slept with girls that guys my age (or any age) have only ever perved over in magazines and videos.

Facially I look like a crab thats been smashed with a shovel, I'm brutally ugly and balding but bodywise I'm in much better shape than most of the general population thanks to weight training and good diet, its just a hobby of mine.

During the short amount of time I'v been punting, I'v had a lot of WG's comment that they couldn't believe "such a lovely bloke" had been single for so long (9 years!) I'v had comments on my physique and even been called "handsome", personally I take it with a pinch of salt, its their job to make you feel good, and part of that involves blowing smoke up your ass I suppose.

"Handsome" is not a word that springs to mind when I look in the mirror, thats for sure! nice personality, probably, , good body, yes...but handsome...lol no.. I make Sloth from the goonies look like Brad Pitt.

One chinese girl did seem pretty fascinated with my shoulder/arm muscles though, she couldn't leave them alone, in broken english she said I looked like a wrestler, so I picked her up over my head then gently dumped her onto the bed, she thought that was great.

My last punt was telling me I deserved to have a nice girlfriend...bla...bla...why don't I have one then? WGs say nice things, its part of the job....They pretend to enjoy sucking your cock, so I suppose many extend that to pretending to like your personality/face/body/whatever, if you buy into it it will encourage you to return.

Exactly, my friends will most likely never have sex with the kind of girls (in terms of beauty) I've had sex with. They could of course, but I'm pretty sure they would never ever even consider punting.

1) Don't knock sucking cock until you've tried it!

2) There's someone for everyone & if Hitler had Eva Braun, William Hague has Ffion, and Seal had Heidi Klum... there's someone for you.

3) I didn't lie to clients, we were just two people trying to make the best of our time together. That's why I'd look for the best in my clients, however well-hidden it was.

20-25 years ago, the "AIDS - Don't die of ignorance" campaign was in full swing. Girls in their late teens/20s hadn't seen porn, didn't know what they liked or what they were missing, weren't confident enough themselves to experiment or ask for what they wanted, didn't want to get a 'reputation'. At least, that was the case in my social circle. Plus, I was bashful. Hence, punting.
