Right out of postcards......

However, I want somewhere that is discrete, where I can park a little way away and still be assured of having a car when I am done (tricky explaining to the missus that the car was nicked in the redlight district). I dont want to be in a residential area and have curtains twitched or photos taken. I also want to be able to leave and immediately blend in with the surroundings rather than have everyone knowing that I have just been serviced.....

I also hate dark alleyways or high street doors left ajar.

7 sounds just about right for me ... as long as the parking is safe and the place is discrete.

This is posted in respect to other similar threads about addresses and safe locations.

So what do you guys want is it:

1.Easy to find and obvious - I.e. as long as we can see your house number from across the road in the dark. And if you live in a block of flats, the floor number. (And warn us if its on the sixth floor and the lift is hidden behind a door behind the stairs!)

2.Discrete - I.e. No big red flashing lights or neon arrow signs with naked women on them. And the doorbell does not sound like a womans orgasm when you press it.

3.In the open - We want to get from the safety of our cars to the door and back again as quickly and quietly as possible. We dont want to play "its a knock out" with jumping over garden fences, slipping over muddy gardens, getting barked at by neighbours dogs...etc.

Plus we punters like to have an escape route if it goes wrong.

4.Hidden - Not having to negotiate granny shoppers 3 feet from your doorbell. Or getting strange looks from the odd shopper or parking attendent. Or the odd smile from obviously another punter who know what the place is. Plus its embarressing when you turn up with chocolates and flowers, ring the bell only to be left on the doorstep in front of all these people, with the sound of laughing builders and some granny going "oh bless" in your ears as you slowly walk back to your car......

5.An address the WG gives out to anyone -

6.Location given to those on their way -

7.Address given when parked since it's right around the corner but so hidden you wouldn't find it without instructions.

We want to know where to meet. And we need to plan how long it will take us to get there. What trains to take, what underground to take.

We need to be able to know where we can park and how to get from where we park to where you are.

If you dont want to give us the house number or flat number then I agree with that. But I dont want to turn up, phone 5 minutes from the agreed booking and then find that Ive got a 30 minute walk down about 5 or 6 streets becuase the bare minimum of address was actually miles out from where you actually are.

Okay. Whats the address? :eek:

I think all the points raised so far are very valid. Personally these days I always insist on having a full address before I travel, and find most girls I contact will happily do this.

I have, in the now distant past when I was new to it all, travelled many miles out of my way to meet up with a WG only to find when I arrive in the town or street, her phone is switched off.

I much prefer private house visits to flats as it just feels safer to me, and parking is usually no problem.

So, as long as I know in advance exactly where I'm heading for, can park with no difficulties, and above all, feel safe, then I'm happy at that.

Somewhere not too far from the tube, in case its raining, a starbucks/cafe nero close to hand would be an asset also, clear house number and bell. I can do the rest myself.

Roadie if I gave you my exact address you wouldn't find me anyway since it's rather 'hidden' so it would be completely useless to you and you would then be wandering around outside accusing me of wasting your time.

My main goal is to get clients to my front door, if they don't then it means no appointment for them as well as no money for me!

Makes sense.

Some guys have had the same attitude and severely lost out as a result.

Never mind, I'd rather have happy and satisfied clients than someone who insists on the address only to stomp off when they realise it isn't on any map nor SatNav or even worse knock on the wrong door and feel embarassed (that was done at my last place when I gave out my exact address - and the guy(s) forgot the number).

See method in madness, but if you would rather fend for yourself and probably get yourself lost/waste my time that's fine by me.

There is method in my madness

That is a rather odd reply to my post. You asked what punters would want, I told you what I prefer.

Even if I have the full address, I always ring ahead once I'm close, so if her place was hard to find or something had gone wrong, we still get to chat about it before I turn up.

Which is the system I use - I give full postcode/details of place to park then verbal directions once you have car parked.

Simple and works very well.

I think that is reasonable. A postcode is all that is needed to get pretty close to a location, usually within the street. Then the exact house given when the client arrives and telephones, don't see any problem with that at all.

That's how we work... Give out postcode street name etc.. but not the number until the client arrives. I like to keep it discreet & also like to know when someone is on there way up.

Where were we before the ubiquitous mobile phone? Don't know how we ever coped.

I am doing more or less the same. I give the postcode when the firm booking was made, which can be days/weeks in advance, so guy can plan his journey. Then I give number of the house when guy finally confirmed booking on the day of the appointment in the morning, which is at least 4-5 hours prior booked time.

I've had various, some have said come to number such and such, whatever street, others it's been a street name, hotel name post code, get the house / flat / room number. I've no problem with any of these methods, every WG has there own personal methods. I think it's maybe my laid back and trusting attitude has lead me to not have problems while I've punted with independent escorts, if you go round expecting shit to happen, it generally will. As said before so long as it's fairly discreet and every other person in the neighberhood isn't looking at you and shouting 'He's going to shag a WG', I'm okay. Number 7 is definitely the description of Strawberries place, and it is discreet and very nice.

Like others have said I like to plan a bit, so as I travel to independents I like a postcode so I can plan route and don't need house/flat number until I arrive, unless very discrete. I prefer slightly residential to middle of high street.

That said went to visit WG in modern apartments with secure entry I thought she said one number so I pressed that number and Doh got wrong number huge embarrassment as I had to phone her back for right number, I smile when I think of it now but at the time!! My learning curve listen very carefully.

Since so many say they won't lesve without the full address I am now tempted to give my address out up front, then await the wasting-time accusations.

In fact i will do that and send lost guys in the way of JRC and others.

Enjoy!

Strawberry send them the full address if they won't leave home without it, let them find it from the perfectly nice and pretty much safe car park, bet they'll still be ringing for directions.

I dont mind,as long as I get the general location or street before I set out.The lady involved has got to feel happy with her own security.I do get a bit fed up with London street numbering sometimes.Ive had bookings in 3 basement flats on street corners and each time the entrance has been round the corner in the next street and one I nearly got to the next side street before I found the entrance, there was 5 flats down there.When my regular girl was in between flat moves we met at her friends flat,got the address got to the street and searched up and down for the house number,I wanted something like 46 and the last number was 44. Phoned the girl turns up Im at the wrong end of the street, 46 was before 1? on the odd numbered side of the street plus it wasnt numbered.She had to wave at me through the window(wearing a dressing gown).Her not the window.That is the only time Ive felt conspicuous when punting.

Proof of the pudding for me will come in the next few weeks... At the moment I live in a house in a residential estate where there's copious amounts of free parking. Men seem to like visiting me here saying it's discreet. I will shortly be moving to the very centre of Brighton, again in a house, but with no daytime parking are the rare chance of evening parking. The menfolk I've spoken to (existing clients and those over the phone) have been thrilled and can't wait for me to get there saying it's going to be much easier for them...

Not at all what I thought would happen, I thought no parking would be seen as more of a problem. Still might be as I'm fully aware that I may loose some of the folk who travel in to see me, as seeing me and negotiating the car parks of Brighton might be too much, yet I know where I am at the moment I must miss out on those in town for the day and car-less, or car already happily parked up.

I'm moving anyway... work will evolve, it normally does.

That's funny!!

Strawberry, if it works for you why change it? Most guys are more than happy if the WG is keeping things discrete. I'm a fan of the way you arrange things ...

The way I operate is I give a very vague idea of location (without giving too much away) during enquiry stage if they ask, but give my full address once a firm booking's been made. I work slightly differently from other ladies (I think) as I've always insisted on ID verification before I'll accept a booking, so once I know who someone is I'm happy for them to know where I live. It works really well for me and my clients.

Incidentally, guys, when you say you'd want somewhere discrete do you mean somewhere separate/detached, or do you mean discreet ie private/not drawing attention to itself? Each is relevant to Strawberry's post but mean different things.
