Why Is It Wgs Get Away With Age Discrimination?

173 posts in this topic

I've often noticed reading through profiles on AW that a girl may state, 'No guys over 45' , 'no one under 30' or 'Max age 60'.

Is this not discrimination under the Equality Act 2010?

Let me state for the record I seldom have an issue finding a WG to see, and have seen ladies from ages 18 to 48, but I do get annoyed at the generalisation that some ladies make that because you are, say over 60, you instantly become a geriatric grey-haired fart who wears a flat cap, smells of stale piss and drives a Rover 75 (slowly).

As it happens, I am 60, not quite 100% grey, and dress in a stylish manner, with clothes by Fat Face, River Island and others. I still drive fast, have a 3.0litre BMW Z3 as well as a normal saloon car, so clearly dont have one foot in the grave. However, I discovered some of the girls in the accouts had bets amongst themesleves on how old I was and no guess was over 54, so I felt rather flattered.

So to be told, no over 60s, even though you wont be ID for age, is a bit of a kick in the teeth.

DO others feel the same about discrimination, or in my old age am I too sensitive?

I would suggest a chill pill is in order, if the lady is going to discriminate take your hard earned cash elsewhere.

The BMW, driving fast and Fat Face has just put me off. Can I discriminate on those grounds?

Joking aside(actually it's close to the truth!) a gent has cancelled a booking with me this week stating he feels too old(late 60s) for this game, and I've also had several others who have double checked with me that I'm ok with seeing someone in their 50s, 60s and 70s.

I don't discriminate on age and I have been known to have close friendships with the occasional man in some of those age brackets, sometimes very close indeed(ok not 70s yet but I do have regular clients in their 70s with whom I get on fine shock horror :o and have even seen one chap in his 80s who returned the following day for round two :P ).

So it works both ways and seems men are putting their own limits onto their punting behaviours too, which is a great pity.

For the same reason some WGs racially discriminate, because its not a regulated industry and presumably no one official bothers taking any action, or not that i have heard of myself.

I'm not in your age bracket yet Taggart but I can see your point,as for discrimination it goes without saying an escort can exclude and discrimate against anyone at anytime anywhere they see fit.WG's are not public servants and do not hold any obligation to any any punter,all you have is a verbal agreement if money changes hands.

Absolutely..

Some people just do not like a big age difference because of the intimacy involved.. Personally I will not knowingly see anybody under the age of 30 because it really makes me feel uncomfortable knowing that I could be their mother and it just screams wrong at me from all levels.

Why would you even want to see somebody who feels uncomfortable with you being over 60? (This could be because it feels like having sex with her father/grandfather whether you are fit or not, have a fast car etc, and would put her off) The likelihood is that the booking will not be as good purely because of this from her side so you are better off seeing the girls who are comfortable with it to start with because many girls are.

The short answer is "because they can!".

Since this industry sails so close to the moral values of mainstream society there is little appetite for regulation with regard to discrimination laws. If I see such indications (and I am 66) I just move on. As Strawberry says above, she and many others, enjoy seeing guys of my age. Therefore I will give them my pension pennies. Oh the power of the silver pound! :)

We are not machines and you want a good experience, if that's how a girl rolls, let her. You do know that you have no right to demand we have sex with you, even if you are prepared to pay, right? Or do you get a kick out of coercion? Also - first world problem.

On reflection, I would much rather be aware that a lady does not want to see me because of my age than waste my money to find same out when it's too late.

You aren't purchasing a new washing machine from John Lewis. You are paying an escort possibly for her time which by most accounts will involve a bit of kiss kiss bang bang. Have you considered the fact the a young woman might not under any circumstances want to have sex with a man in his 60's? It's not just about you driving your Fat Face in a BMW on River Island. You could have a space rocket in your back garden and say you'll whisk her off to the moon (dont try this guys, it doesn't work) but that doesn't mean some poor woman won't be grossed out by doing the no pants dance with an older bloke. Why should she see men in their 60's, if that's in any way uncomfortable for her?

Yes...but it won't be long before you trade it in for a Nissan Micra and start driving everywhere at 15mph :P

As for women guessing you are not as old as you are, i always get told by girls i don't look a day older than 60.

Problem is......i'm only 41 :lol:

Age discrimination I can understand to a degree, like if the person is a very young adult like Pia suggested.

Then you also have the issue that young boys - well some of them can be a bit laddish and/or immature so they may also be excluded.

However, I have to say why eldrly man should be banned , I have problems getting my head around. To put it bluntly I do not understand the logic of it in the main

And that is because I view sex from a WG as a service.

Like I have said elsewhere those who are pro-prostitution view sex as special and those trying to ban it like politicians also view it as such. So both opposing parties start from a similar premise and reach differing diverse conclusions...Whereas I would argue that I am being logically consistent...Errrrrr I think :unsure:

So, Superego, you'd go down on Jo Brand for 150 an hour because, hey, it's just a service, right?

If I was a prostitute...I would have it in my head to be sleeping with most kind of women. I would just see it as part of the job to provide a service. Just as in the same way

if I am working in a KFC shop, I would be expected to serve anyone who walks through the door.

Not everyone can see it this way.

...but then that is just me hence the name :wacko:;)

In my private life - away from the world of work/employment - this rule would not apply and I would be fussy on who I choose to have sex with whetehr it be a serious and/or casual relationship.

Applying your standards would seriously diminish the number of girls on offer...

Oh sweetheart, 6% of women who charge for sex won't bonk you! How terrifying and insulting. What an awful indignity you suffer, of all the horrors in the world, like women being forced to have sex with people they don't want to, this has to take the cake, I feel for you. Deeply. How dare they decide who they want to bonk them? Yes what absolute discrimination against equality, it really should be viewed the same as staying in a B&B or buying a coffee machine. I am sure any court in the world would protect you from such horrid exclusion.

I am not sure I understand your response here.

I am trying to contrast how I would be as a male prostitute ie sleep with anybody viz-a-viz how I would behave in my private life ie not sleep with anybody.

Would you like to elaborate on your point.

Cheers!

I'd have to applaud Strawberry's initial comment. We'll try to forget the BMW....BUT! Fat Face and River Island are not names to impress anyone,at any age.In fact,all you've done is show your age.You'll possibly say next,"and I watch X-Factor" ?

I only 'discriminate' by saying that, when I am back in Glasgow, I won't (or extremely rarely) see anyone under the age of 25. Why? Because that's the same age as my son and, for all I know, it could be one of his friends (not realising who I am, if you get my drift?)

When on tour, I will see anyone who is of legal age, although I do still feel uncomfortable with anyone under 21.

My oldest client is 84.

I can fully understand why some girls have minumum / maximum ages, and it doesn't make them bad for saying so and sticking to it.

But how about the guys (such as the OP) who have a maximum age for the ladies that they wish to see? Surely, all us WG's are sitting on the one thing that you really want? Or is it more a case of your thinking that the older we are, the more like opening a cold cheese toastie it might be? Lol...

I'm 53 and proud of it. No-one who has visited me has put my age above 40, even though they know beforehand by reading my website or profile on the purple place exactly my age. I'm often told that I have the body of a 30yr old and...

Actually, I'd better stop there as it sounds like I'm touting. Sorry.....

So what's wrong with choosing a woman in my age range or older? You're discriminating too.

What I'm trying to say is, OP, you can't demand that a girl sees you if you're outside of her specified age range. There are 1000's of other WG's to choose from, so broaden your horizons :P

Why on earth would you want to see a WG who didn't want to see you? Surely if she feels strongly in a certain direction, it's only going to lead to a poor service.

There's a common misconception that a service provider (I'm talking ANY service, not just sexual ones) has to accept any paying customer, simply because they're offering a service. Not true - I offer a service for a living, and I'm extremely fussy about who I'll work with, because I want my work to be enjoyable, and taking on the wrong customers makes for a miserable experience for both of us. Some people are a bit put out when I politely turn them away, but I'm sure there are others in my field who will work with them.

The fundamental difference is the WG is in employment providing a service, the punter is merely a customer (ie the recipient).

In our society the former 'cannot' discriminate in employment ie in the provision of goods and services, just the same for every single profession whereas the latter ie customer can make a choice (as opposed to discriminate) what service he would like.

It should not really make any difference whether the WG likes the punter or not. Equally it is also possible to receive less than a good service from a WG who is neutral about her client. I am sure there are some WGs who hate a particular group of people but still see them because at the end of the day it is business

With regard to your own clients, do you advertise on the basis of discrimination that you do not wish to see or serve a particular group of people? I bet if you did you would find yourself in a different situation to the one you are in now, and it would not be favourable either.

Ahhhh, so you're in a restaurant and whilst reading the menu you decide that you'd like steak diane. This isn't actually on the menu, but you feel that because there are other meats (steaks) that you can 'expect' the restaurant to back down, get the mincer out and give you what is not actually on offer? Because they are providing 'goods and services?'

A WG is providing a service, therefore she MUST see guys from legal age (18 or 21) until death's door?

If a guy comes to visit me and tells me that he 'forgot to go to the cash machine on his way up', and would I accept Visa - should I? Ummm, let me think about that one for a moment..... No, I CHOOSE to show him the door.

I think he's referring to age discrimination laws. There's a big gap between the (frankly ridiculous amount of) legislation in this country, and the (thankfully lax) enforcement of it. There are loads of examples where people get away with it - the one that springs to mind is bars/clubs that offer free entry to girls, but charge men.

There is also a "fair and reasonable justification" get-out clause in the legislation (the same as with most of this stuff). I'm sure that not wanting to have sex with someone older than their father would be considered reasonable. Otherwise, where would it stop? Would you insist that heterosexual escorts accept women to comply with sex discrimination law?
