Reviewing Soho Walkups

26 posts in this topic

Am I wrong or reviews on the above cannot be done anymore? If so, why is that, and do any of you know of other websites or indipendent blogs that review these walkups?

I personally have found my share of bad attitudes with certain Soho working girls so the last thing I am going to do is a gamble with a new working girl. Most of them are ok, but not all.

PS. I use soho walkups for two reasons: 1. Because that's what I can afford, and 2. because even if I could afford 'better', I would not necessarily spend much more. I am not looking to get laid like a king for £ 20, but I expect that the girl gives a good service even if it's only 10 minutes and , above all, that I don't find a psycho. ( I have not found any, but I know there are because of these reviews that cannot be now written anymore)

Thank you

There is a very long thread in the RFI board that covers walk-ups. There are reviews and info about who works where and when.

Last FR was 2 months ago and i read also that new reports were no longer being accepted, which is a real shame since this is the biggest punting area in the UK by a long way.

I'm wondering why? OK, the turnover makes it difficult to be accurate on who will be where and when, but there are still lots of reliable Soho girls out there who do work regular days, so why is Soho now off limits?

Why are Soho FRs not allowed anymore? I've always enjoyed reading through the Soho FRs as they're more comprehensive than the mini-reviews in the Soho Walk Up thread.

What makes you say that? I thought people who frequent those places have been saying it has gone steadily downhill in terms of numbers. And surely for the last ten or fifteen years central West London and further out in North East London have been much bigger in terms of total numbers. Maybe in sheer density Soho would win, I don't know.

Because those places have a reputation for horrible conditions, I'm guessing?

Yes, i mean the largest number of girls in the smallest area. True it's going down in the numbers of flats, and some of them are pretty shitty, most in fact, but they cater for the £20-£25 punt plus there are some lovely girls there if you know where to look and, in the past, there have been some real knockouts!

well, it's a very broad and generalized guess. I have been punting in Soho quite intensively for months. While I was met with some WGs with a bitchy and unlikeable attitude that I did not do business with, and I never will, I have never met these 'horrible conditions'.

Like Raylondoner wrote, there's some very good girls there indeed, if you know where they are, and where you can get cheap and cheerful sex for £ 20 for 10 min.

Poor man punting, but not as bad as you might think. But I do not recommend to see ANY girl in Soho without reading a review. Without FRs it really sucks, so we will have to be even more selective and aware.

Also, I noticed that many negative soho FRs about various girls, have been deleted. I know that because I saved loads of reviews on my computer. This is shit.

maybe it's worth making an indepentent reviewing site. It should not be hard, and should be free, with Wordpress. But I just have no time, way too fucking busy

G's choice if he wishes to exclude walk-up FR's, and he is perfectly entitled to not give reason if he doesn't want to - his train set remember

There is a useful wikispaces site on the walkups

Agreed the walkup thread is unwieldy but you can use the tailored search function to search it by address/girl I expect

I didn't realise they were not accepted now. I am surprised there is still much of a scene there as I thought they were gentrifying the area at some space. I regret not getting into the area when I lived in East London and the area was in one of its heydays with Ronnie Scott still around and characterful pubs and bars and cafes. the only faint whiff of it now is that cafe near Romlin(?) Street with the great cakes and tarts (no) in the window where I've sometimes met some old-time Soho characters.

I won't say G wrote the very first FR about a Soho walk up because he will correct me again about it being a much smarter place in Soho.

Surely the problem with writing a Walk-Up FR is the lack of telephone number or web-site address, one, at least, of which is required for a valid FR?

Not to make light of anything but if I was getting paid £20 for a shag I possibly wouldnt have the best attitude either, it would be okay mate, you done? see you later.x

Soho walkups are more geared to a quick 10 min punt at £20-£25 making their hourly rate quite expensive

I tried to do a FR for a walk up a couple of days ago. It said that it needed a phone number or a web address, which it never used to. There haven't been any FRs for a couple of months now, and older ones have been deleted. Maybe PunterNet no longer wishes to be associated with what some people feel to be the seedier side of punting.

Most of the women in Soho have a good attitude, but a few don't. They usually charge £50 for 20 minutes so they can be as well paid pro rata as other WGs. Even if you want ten minutes of oral (with condom) and then sex they'll charge you £30 for that. They rarely do OWO which I think comes as standard with most WGs.

Perhaps...if you had your hours all full, but what if you don't. It doesnt matter how much you could end up with at the end of the hour. I read the soho walk ups thread occasionally, not all of it, and some of the disrespectful attitudes that were coming across would make the nicest girl moody, imagine being at the receiving end of all that in person

Whilst I completely agree with you about some people's attitudes to the girls who work in walk ups (and have complained on a couple of objections when some people went too far) not all of us are like that. When I can afford to I do punt with indies, or at parlours like HoD and the much missed Giggles Girls, but some times when times are tough I've gone to Soho and if you go to the reliable walk ups (26 Romilly Street, 70A Berwick Street, 8 Greek Street amongst others) you'll normally meet friendly girls in nice surroundings (26 Romilly Street for instance is just as nice as most parlours I've been to) and have a good time.

I've punted with soho walk up girls and indies, and sometimes there's really not much of a difference at all - Daisy, for instance, who I saw a fair few times was a very intelligent English girl who told me she was just in this to make a lot of money fast, that she enjoyed what she did, and that a surprisingly high amount of men suffered from premature ejaculation - though given how hot she was I think that's slightly understandable ;) - which wasn't always a bad thing! And ultimately she did enjoy what she did. Paris, who now works as a highly rated independent never had a bad word to say about working in a walk up either. And whilst there is the 10 minute option, many do stay for 30 minutes or an hour.

Unfortunately there is the flip side. One girl told me that it was about 50/50 when it came to punters being friendly / just using her as a sex object, with some being strangely rude only after the sex was over with. And there are some walk up's that I don't use as I'm not happy with the way they're run / they have a high number of reports of women who don't provide a good service - which does concern me because I do upmost to make sure I don't go with a woman who might not be there of her own free will. Though I know across the whole spectrum of prostitution you can never be 100% certain.

The latter is why I think reports are so important, I don't want to go and see any woman who isn't providing a good service not because I clearly won't have a good time, but because I don't want to see someone who is unhappy working as a working girl. And sometimes that's not apparent until the money has changed hands and you're naked on the bed...

I totally believe you, I would never imagine that all the guys who do use the walk ups would be of negative attitude or not be nice, but it stands to reason that some of the guys will have the opinion that the girl is only worth 20 because thats all he is paying for her so just a cheap ho and worth nothing more in his eyes...and they will treat her as such unfortunaltey, that was my point which Im guessing I could have put across a bit better. It comes across sometimes with certain people when paying much more so it stands to reason it must occur more often when the basic fee is so much lower. They must come across a lot of druggies who cannot afford to pay more and the problems that come with people like that, they dont care about themselves half the time so I would guess their empathy levels are below the norm... the druggies that is not the girls.

I do agree with you, and I think we're basically saying the same thing - certainly (and sadly) there's evidence in the Soho Walk Up Thread about how disrespectful some men are towards the women - but I don't think it's quite as high an amount as you might imagine. I've been punting for 17 years now (on and off, at least) and have never seen any one who was either obviously drugged up or drunk use a walk up, and you do cross paths with a fair few punters whilst entering or leaving the walk ups, or hear them saying goodbye to the girl whilst you're waiting for your appointment. Indeed the majority of punters I've seen have been well dressed (a lot of business men in their suits and ties seem to use the walk up's around 6pm for instance!) and I've personally never come across any one who looks dodgy.

I'm certainly not saying they don't exist, and walk up girls may have to put up with a higher percentage of bad clients than parlour girls or indies, but I still think the reports are very important for the reasons I posted in my first post, and it's a shame we've all but lost the ability to post them now.

Well I am glad to hear that to be honest I was horrified that some of the comments on the soho thread were allowed to remain and the posters not given warnings at the time. They may have been deleted now possibly...hopefully. I have never worked in one so I am not speaking from personal experience, you are.

I think that some of the women working in Soho are missing a trick here. If the women of 70A Berwick Street, for example, set up their own website showing their rota and their services then men could do field reports on them and nobody else in Soho. They could get a lot more customers. I think they have a phone number already.

I think that most women who work in Soho walk ups would not want to work at somewhere like House of Divine. I spoke to one woman who said she will only do hand relief with latex gloves or using a condom. She's not going to want to work at HoD where she's expected to do OWO and kissing and not even get paid extra for it. In Soho they get £65 per half hour or £130 for an hour and lots of things are only available as extras.

On the Soho Walk Up thread all the men had nothing but good to say about Paris. They are only going to say bad things about a woman if she isn't going to make her customers happy.

Hey, I just did that one day as I was so short on money at the time! ;) But I know what you mean, and whilst I've visited walk up's a lot I'm sure there's a side that I don't see, which is again why I only use the established and well run venues. But it's certainly not an idea situation, and I am very concerned about the women who work in walk up's which stay open until 3am in the morning. I've never punted anywhere near that time, but having been out and about drunk in Soho at night, I can imagine their life is a lot harsher.

On the Soho Walk Up thread all the men had nothing but good to say about Paris. They are only going to say bad things about a woman if she isn't going to make her customers happy.

The big question there is why isn't she making her customers happy? Is she genuinely in it for a fast buck but strongly dislikes the work and this comes across (something the fr's suggest also sometimes happens in (some) parlours, and even with indies)? Or is she working there because of a pimp / bastard of a boyfriend?

but how much work seriously would a woman who will only give a wank with latex gloves seriously earn other than from the guys who want a fast unload and dont care how...unless she uses her nouse and advertises it as a specialist service

I should think that most WGs dislike their work. The ones who dislike it most would be the ones who don't like people much. In a service industry or retail if you don't enjoy contact with the public then you're not going to like your job. If a WG won't take her bra off unless you pay her extra or something like that then she's not going to be well respected.

I don't think that there are pimps in Soho. I remember a police officer saying that if a WG smiles at you it's not because she likes you, it's because she's been told by her pimp to make the customer happy and she'll get beaten up if she doesn't. I think he was talking mainly about brothels with oriental women in them. I don't think he was correct. It might happen sometimes like that, but it is rare. But if a WG did have a pimp she would be as likely to give an excellent service as a poor service.
