Do You Think The Escort Industry Is Declining Or Growing?

77 posts in this topic

Do you think the escort industry such as massage parlours and independents offering services of time and companionship growing or declining? 

 

By growing I simply mean the amount of establishments being opened and staying open and the volume of new working girls offering services.

By declining I simply mean the amount of establishments that are closing/no longer offering service and working girls who are deciding to work 9 to 5's jobs instead of offering services of companionship.

Sounds like bad boy has a thesis to justify.

I can't remember exactly how many posts I had done before I personally took my courage in both hands and started a new topic but it must have been well on the way to a hundred if not more. I was anxious to get out of the 20 zone so I did read as many threads as possible and if I thought that I had a comment to make then I did so. It was amazing how quickly you reach the 20. I thought it important to acclamatise myself to the forum if you will as I wanted to build a decent reputation and not come across as a plonker. But I would be the last person to tell anyone not to post if they wanted to because it's a free world (hopefully) and free speech is part of that free world. Live long and prosper.

Eh? What has that got to do with whether the escorting industry is growing or declining? :lol:

Maybe it's a dig at the fact that OP's very first post is an actual thread instead of a comment?

It's hard being a failure Lucy. :D. On the other hand if you're hard can it be a failure? :D.

Good question which i dont know the answer too and i would love to hear from anyone who does and how they know. Someone like George McCoy might have a fair idea i would imagine though.

Hear hear. 

I absolute loathe the 'old boys club' nonsense people try to put out on here.  Get on with it for f*cks sake.  Who has the time to invest in lengthy discussions about, and let's be frank, the same old nonsense day in/day out.  It's a forum for everyone who respects the rules, simple.  You don't have any more ownership over things because you've clocked in hundreds of posts than a newbie who's just finding his legs or has a single query and wishes to ask people who are 'in the loop'. 

 

And if he does have a 'thesis to justify', isn't it a good thing that he's come on here to gather information?? Yes, it bloody well is.

 

The sad reality is there are people with far, far too much time on their hands and they've embedded themselves into forums like this.  Naturally then, they're hostile to fleeting newbies who've invested less time but have every right to start a perfectly legitimate topic of conversation.

 

Anyway, to answer his question.  I'd say most recently yes.  There are more women involved with sex work.  There are far more millionaires knocking about than 20 years ago.  And they're mostly men.  The rich/poor divide has widened.  So it's only natural to come to the conclusion that there are more women wanting to close that divide or even cross it themselves.  Obviously there are more men working as escorts too, but that increase in my opinion isn't anywhere near as dramatic.

Do you think George McCoy et al are perhaps exposed to a certain...price bracket or class of escort?  I always think of him as a massage and massage alternative sort of chap.  I don't see him traveling the world and frequenting high class establishments.  That's where I think the largest growth has taken place.  The £500+/hr market.  That figure has moved from being ridiculously unrealistic to perfectly achievable for a far greater number of men.

If anything it is shrinking, just. The purple site is the only source more or less in my area - cambs/hunt - a lot of transients with 0 fb - and a handful of regulars who are not my cup of tea. It's not much better in st albans where I go now and again. There's another PN member who lives in my area who I pass emails to now and then - he finds the same - hardly any talent around here.

I mainly do my punting with independents in the Berkshire end of the M4 corridor and London. I think the availability has declined in Berkshire and stayed about constant in London over the last 10 years or so. My wild guess would be that the decline in Berkshire is due to occasional blitzes by the Police in urban areas and house price rises in rural areas.

 

But none of that explains what happened to the lovely lady from Judy's Mature Escorts who operated from a well-furnished narrow-boat moored on the Thames somewhere between Henley and Maidenhead. It was such a pleasure to rock her boat. Sigh!

 

Cheers!

Growing like topsy. No , wait, shrinking like my ageing gonads. In line with GDP? RPI?Who knows? Certainly not anyone on here. It only takes one at a time for most folk. I have lost interest..

The gov actually does a survey periodically, and has established that use of prostitutes by men increases annually. As for wgs, in my experience of living in Edinburgh, nos have gone up considerably in 35 years, where there was one brothel, on Danube st, there are 17 sauna licenses city wide, plus loads of girls working off-grid.

So the answer to the question the OP posed is..none of us actually have a clue as we are not in all areas of the country all of the time. We can only comment on our own individual areas of working/punting.

 

Has it risen or declined in MK...I havnt a clue...I think its about static now isnt it. At one point it was rising and now its well risen. There seem to be an awful lot of providers in this area but when you look at aw the local search covers a rather large area, buckinghamshire itself has sps from the far side of london who never even get to mk advertising in that sections...I guess on the assumption that a lot of guys travel a good distance to punt.

 

It is an unusual post for a newbie to make. Its seems the OP probably joined JUST TOO post this thread. Thesis, well at least he is in the land of the truth here, lets hope he uses it and not artistic license if the truth isnt as exiting as he envisaged.

This is purely speculation, but I get the impression that parlours are on the decline, where as Agencies have stayed static in the last 3 years and Indepenent Escorts have increased.  With regards to Indepedents, as an example, when I signed up on AW 3 years ago, there were around 40+ WG's advertsing in my area.  Now there are 75.  Not all are real, as there have always been fake or redundent profiles on there, but still the number has nearly doubled.

I can only type personally about my area.

I feel it is growing.

There is a steady stream of new ladies popping up on AW in my area.

Lots of so called escort agencies advertising via there as well, possibly the low key sort of parlours are using AW as a advertising tool too.

The proper parlours In Leeds are all closed down now.

Lots and lots of men around who are seeking the sexual favours off us ladies.

So in my opinion it is growing.

 

Every time sites like this or AW get a media mention it lets more men and women know about the industry and by clicking around the internet it is clear for all to see how easy it is to buy and sell sexual favours.

The industry chasnges all the time.  Evolve or die :)  And that's a quote !

If I've time next week, I'll do some statistical analysis from the AW pages.

 

And before I get flamed, as Charles Babbage said 'Any onformation is better than no information'.

 

Also, statistically, even incorrect information, i.e. false profiles, can still provide an overall picture assuming the proportions remain the same.

 

The last time I did this was over a year ago, so it will be interesting to see how the total number of escorts has changed, etc.

 

As an observation, the number of escorts appearing in my saved searches is growing. As far as I can tell, many, perhaps the majority are EE ladies.

I would argue the opposite. Purely anecdotal I know, but I have used far less £150 escorts this year and used many more parlours instead. One has to cut ones cloth accordingly.

See now that's how I was thinking. Lots of girls 'indies'recently have told me they are thinking of packing it in because the scene is nowhere as busy as it was five years ago. I do think lots more girls try it because in a recession they probably need the money more, but doubt there are as many clients out there as there used to be.

In my experience it is increasing- when I started 3.5 years ago there were around 80-90 escorts advertising on AW in my borough. There have been as many as 200 recently but today (having just looked) there are 170. The number changes every day but overall there has been a steady increase. 

 

Saying that there is no measure of how many these are genuine!

This is certainly the case in my area (Gloucestershire). Five years ago there was the choice of 3 or 4 parlours in Cheltenham and now (AFAIK) there are none. This makes casual punting far more difficult. There are more profiles on AW but most have no feedback and are for foreign girls. I am not comfortable visiting these as I am never 100% certain that they are working of their own free will. I have had a couple of regulars and really enjoy them but am gutted when they move or retire.
