The Erotic Review

23 posts in this topic

I have read many a review on The Erotic Review. Most seem to be posted by Americans and are usually flattering - I haven't seen many negative reviews on there. What do other people think of the site? Would be good to hear all and every view!!!!

As a predominantly American site, it's not surprising that Septics dominate the UK reviews. On the plus side the site has plenty of search criteria and does provide information on escorts you don't find elsewhere. However, there is a bias to the very expensive. Worth the occasional visit.

 

Very useful when visiting the US, however to access full functionality (VIP membership) you need to post a couple of pretty detailed reports.

Greetings from the Land o' the Free. I'm based here & have used TER for years. Some of following may only apply within US but anyhoo...

I joined TER for free and contributed several reviews during a period of very active punting- I mention because their biz model (over here) is that you pay $15/month unless you're actively contributing FRs...and it was a 'free' return on my punting  ahem 'investment'.

 

I didn't keep up the level of punting so lost VIP status but apart from being a mean git I got annoyed at the gatekeeping on submitting FRs.. they have myriad rules ( some make sense like not mentioning competing sites) but most of which are very nitpicky even down to synthax, but more relevantly a negative review is much more likely to be deemed acceptable than vv. That said, tbf TER has a reasonably decent rep over here, there are plenty of reports of bait & switch on it and as alluded to Walrus it is a great respurce when travelling esp here in States (afaik by volume it's the singlest largest punting site globally.)

 

Imho the bulk of TER FRs are accurate ...but bear in mind the method of entry to 'free' VIP status clearly contributes to some guys not just telling porkies but outright fabrication!!

That's solved a bit of a mystery for me, funnily enough - I got a completely bizarre review on there the first time I went to New York and I only knew anything about it because I noticed the hits on my website traffic and went on for a look.

 

When I read it I couldn't work out who could possibly have written it since it bore no resemblance whatsoever to anything that actually happened with any of the punters I met there (and there weren't that many). I even emailed and asked them if it could be a hoax (although it was positive) and the admins said that it was fairly common for the punters there to embellish things a bit (read: write their own porno with themselves as the star).

 

I never linked it to my site and had forgotten all about it, but that's shone a bit of light on things. I still have no idea whether I actually met whoever posted the bloody silly thing :lol:.

The irony of moniker isn't lost on me...

Indeed..I'd lay $$$ that particular FR was authored by a Walter Mitty type keeoing up his 'free' VIP status :P

Sorry to go all nerdy but we prefer "Merkin".... (just goofing around here ;->) while I fully get the vernacular usage of 'yank' given the term applies to people from New England, etymologically it's equivalent to describing all Brits as 'Mancunians'.

 

Apologies for being a Septic Tool lol.

I just joined TER a couple of weeks ago.  It's obviously early days for me yet as I have no reviews, and at the moment have no plans to visit America.  But I've noticed I've had a fair bit of traffic from it.  Hopefully I'll get some booking from it too.

What's your point?

On my US trips I have found it to be an extremely useful resource. Combined with local hobbyists boards it has completely taken the stress out of organising punts in the US

Hate to bring this topic up, but I find the UK reviews on this site unrealistic. Everybody is a 10/10, that can't be right.

If it is true - good times ahead!

I posted a few reviews, a mixture of good and bad, some indie, some agency and they were all rejected. Didn't bother again

@spanner

Thanks. Do you think they only publish the good reviews? I have posted two good and one "medium" review, will keep watching to see if all appear

I don't like that site. I had one of the fabricated type review about me, which included a few untrue comments, so naturally I wrote a rebuttal. They do not allow escorts to dispute reviews and never published what I had to say, unlike the reputable review sites do. The review system is flawed if they are offering benefits for writing a certain amount of reviews, and of course that is going to encourage false reviews from infrequent clients. This can be damaging for the escort concerned, even if the review is a positive one, because it opens up the potential for clients to say we did x and y, and maybe the escort doesn't offer those services, thus putting unfair expectation on her from future clients.

TER is useful while being deeply flawed to the core. It has the biggest escort database in the US and their search criteria is very extensive. When used with screening services such as Date-Check or P411, it provides the best experiences in searching geniune escorts in the US. However, they also encourage hobbyists to gain VIP status by submitting reviews. So not only that hobbyists will be submitting false reviews, quite a few will also be giving great scores and flattering words in hope that they get whitelisted by the escorts as well.

Jasmine, I believe escorts from outside the US are prime targets for these dishonest reviewers as they are unlikely to even find out that they are reviewed there. They are also not going to be posting about it on the boards. TER accepts providers from all over the world, so plenty of choices for those hobbyists to write fantasy reviews.

I've read a few of those reviews too, but I can't recall your name? I'm not sure of your profile? I did notice that my good friend Inna has a review though. I shall definitely read that!  :P

I find that most review systems are flawed. Adultwork being one of the very worst! I'm not sure what a WG should offer one punter over another, as her advertised services should be clear and offered equally, subject to mitigating factors, of course. Where I do agree with you is that the WG must have a right of reply.

Thanks Witty et all. I will basically disregard the UK section of TER then. Saves a lot of time.

Using TER for UK escorts is like trying to find AW ladies in USA. Sure it might be possible but not really suitable for the job.
