Market Doldrums

64 posts in this topic

One of the best escorts I have seen in the past couple of years, and continue to see regularly, tells me that demand for her services is very low at the moment. I find this extraordinary as, if I could only see one more escort before I die, she is the one I would probably go to see. Her feedback rating on AW is over 300, all positive. Would this fact put some prospective clients off? She is based in West London within a 30 minute tube ride from the centre and 2 minutes walk from the tube station. Would that be a major deterrent? She has lots of excellent, high quality photos which are totally accurate on her profile and I would have expected her to be heavily booked. I won't identify her here as I don't want to be seen to be touting but am happy to give it by PM to anyone who would like me to. I would really like to be able to help her and would be grateful for any feedback from other PN posters.

Could it be due to the recession, Christmas just around the corner, there is football on the TV almost every night, it's winter and cold out there or is it just that she's getting on a bit and nobody has the nerve to tell her :eek:

Absolutely NOT. She is 24, old enough to have the experience to know what she is doing and young enough to be gorgeous!

You've not mentioned the "price point" she occupies in the market; I think that's pretty key. I think the £1000 a pop girls are largely unaffected by this recession and the £50 a pop girls will always get punters who are trading down.

I don't know if it's forbidden to say on here, but it's always and option for her to reduce her rates or make special offers to get new business through the doors, just like all other businesses facing a reduction in footfall.

Perhaps she also has more local competition offering more services more cheaply?

It is always really irritating when posters post about good service but then don't name the name. You aren't allowed to post links so far as I can see from the forum rules, and touting is defined as "a pattern of posting messages which promote the service provider in question whilst contributing nothing meaningful to the community", my emphasis. Is she Gwen by any chance?

Recession and the approach of Christmas - yes,these are factors.

300 feedbacks - not sure, but I do know a few girls who try to keep their feedback number down because they feel you can have too much of a good thing.

But I do know for certain that it often goes in waves - one girl can have a quiet couple of weeks while another is busy,then vice versa - with no apparent reason.

I've been trying to see a particular girl from a trusted agency and yet the lady who runs it is telling me that despite the girls who work for her complaining about being skint, they are turning down bookings on weekends and after 6pm.

I work so can only do weekends and evenings...they can't be that broke if they're turning down bookings, recession or not.

You are allowed to post links, as long as they are not to profiles on AdultWork, and they are not just "cheerleading".

Like I said above there is soccer on TV every night.

Girls who are genuinely gifted at this curious job, quickly build up a stable of regulars, once a week guys,,,,,,if you are not one of these, you have to try a bit harder, sensible prices etc. Feed back is fairly unreliable, even misleading,

I had a look and noticed she only has presence on adultwork.. She needs to get a website set up and get herself on a lot of directories .. This will definitely increase her work..

Would this not count as 'just cheerleading'? No offence to the OP or the girl in question, just wondering!

What if all the regular member started a thread on their favourite girl, wouldn't it get a bit crazy?

Regular ladies I have spoken to over the last 2-3 weeks each say it's very quiet. It has been in November / December the last couple of years in parts of W. Mids where I tend to punt mainly.

PS - I am talking VFM £60 / £100 30/60 min rates, not Belle de Jour in the West End

I have no great in depth knowledge of this business but I would have thought that it would be subject to seasonal fluctuations as well as other things. I would also have thought that one has to consider the amount required each week to pay the bills. Say £750. 6 @ £125 is better than 3 @ £160. You might not want to reduce your prices but a short term reduction is better than going out of business. This ethic applies to lots if businesses.

Also because of my lack of experience I could be wrong regarding feedback but I do tend to ignore ladies with an exceptionally high feedback. I tend to take more notice of ladies with irregular good feedback rather than feedback every other day. I've done first bookings through AW and then contacted the lady direct for subsequent bookings because they weren't interested in amassing a big feedback.

In any business you have to adjust and adapt to suit the market.

It is a sex message forum after all............. but lovely Kendra got herself all tied up in knots for touting and here you are doing the same thing ! You could have posted it in the info section, but you cleverly incorporated another subject within you wily old fox :) If you had used the info section you could have named and shamed your favourite lady

It never fails to amaze me the number of ways people have of advertuising a escort, and this thread as Sarah said is mainly about that, shame on the OP for trying to do this, (feel free to pm me her name....what a laugh) with your number of posts Trouncer you should know better.

I actually took the OPs post as a reflection of general 'trading conditions' at the moment, because the situation he reports isn't too dissimilar to things I've heard recently reported by other ladies.

Strawberrys right.

I'm chatting to the girls most days and these are long established popular escorts that are all saying pretty much the same thing at the moment. I didn't see it as touting on trouncers part, he's just pointing out how difficult its getting out there.

So why the need for the directions to her place? The feedback rating etc etc etc etc..... come on - we ain't daft :)

Detective SS Columbo has called it correctly. Trouncer made a tout, and got found out. Interesting way of doing it though.

The quote " I would really like to help her" would ring warning bells in my head.

We all know that touting on here is not welcome, and for someone with so much history to do it, does send out warning signals.

Especially when Kendra was given such a hrad time for doing just that.....Touting.

He may be trying to help her, but its not allowed on to tout on here .....end of.

Yes, starting a thread would most likely be looked on as cheerleading, so would not be appropriate in this case. I just wanted to clarify that posting links is not completely prohibited.

I suppose it depends on whether you regard punting as an essential need or not. If you punt regularly, then you probably wil lkeep on punting. If you are an casual or infrequent punter, maybe you will draw in your horns a bit.

Yes, you no need to be a Sherlock Holmes, to find out which WG Trouncer meant. ;-). He gave more then enough clues in his posts, and he knew it, that most people who read it will figure out who she is. No even need to invite people to PM him, which did come across as blatant tout.

Trouncer my question is: Did she knew you going to post such post about her on PN and she approved of it? Or you did it on your own accord? If it is the latter, then you should not have done it! If its a former: then most people who accuse your of touting are undoubtedly right.
