Provider Profiles: A Punter's Perspective

26 posts in this topic

It's not difficult to promote yourself as a provider of sensual services, is it? So why is it that so many escorts profiles and websites are so piss poor? There's no shortage of feedback around on the services provided, but I'm not aware of much constructive comment about the sites themselves, so please indulge me while I give my own thoughts on what I look for.

Piccies and Personality

Personally I prefer to see a lady's face; even if her eyes are obscured it still gives you an idea. It's understandable, of course, why a lot of escorts aren't comfortable with this, but I think in all cases, and especially where there is no face picture, it's important for the lady's personality to be expressed in what she says about herself. I believe most men would much rather spend some fun time with a warm, friendly but averagely pretty lady than with a Miss World contestant with all the warmth and personality of Barbie buried in the Antarctic.

Blog

I think a blog can be a big bonus, either for the writer to give an insight to their life, and so their personality (my preferred style), or at least to expand on details of the service they've provided to recent clients. It's rather less impressive though if there was an initial entry two years ago and nothing since!

Spelling

A bit of a personal bugbear of mine, but I find it teeth-grating reading through a site littered with basic spelling errors - 'beautifull experianced independant massuse availible'. It really doesn't give a great impression of the writer. It's a bit more understandable for those to whom English is not their first language, but, I'm sorry, how difficult is it to run a text through Word spell-check then copy it into place? (and before people jump on me, I'll bet I've missed at least one mis-spelling of my own in this post!)

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

As with faces, I quite understand why a lot of ladies aren't keen on putting very intimate photos of what they're offering on their sites, but I think it is helpful to give at least a hint of what the punter is going to find! A lot of fellers have surprisingly strong views on pubes, and whether an escort offers 'as nature intended', 'bald and beautiful' or something in-between can make a big difference to a punter. I was very encouraged recently to read about a sweet young lady of 20 in Lancashire who's quite proud of keeping her flaming red locks au naturelle.

Services

When you're trying to work out whether or not a service provider will scratch your particular itch then a statement like 'I provide all the usual services' isn't particularly helpful, especially when you see the inexhaustible lists of potential services searchable on certain websites. I much prefer the sites which spell out very clearly and explicitly what is on offer. Also, surely, not specifying your fees on your site must lose you potential clients, especially in these times of financial constraints.

Mature

Being no spring chicken myself, I prefer to spend my time with ladies of a certain vintage: I'd feel downright embarrassed having some 18-year old more or less young enough to be my granddaughter in bed with me. Now, I fully appreciate that it's not possible to apply a clear age definition to this term - if you're 18 you might consider a 24-year old to be mature - but in the punting context I think there are some service providers who really push the envelope to its limit. For example, there's one website on PunterNet with 'mature' in the title and I'm fed up of forgetting and going in to see this stunningly gorgeous 30-year old there! (Sorry honey, you really are very beautiful, but mature you ain't!)

Massage

Finally (you'll be glad to hear), a bit of a personal plea. Like a lot of men, I like a really good professional sensual massage to get me in the mood, but it seems there almost isn't an escort under the sun who doesn't list massage among her services. After one or two disappointments, which consisted of at best unskilled hand rubs, I tend to assume that a lady doesn't have 'real' massage skills unless she refers to it in her profile, rather than just putting it in a list of words. So, all those stunning beauties the pleasure of whose company I've denied myself, if you are a skilled masseuse, with or without papers to prove it, please, big it up on your site!

Having got all that off your chest would you like to give us an example of what you consider to be a good web site then?

Or not up to the Toneyofstoney standards for that matter.

Anyway: sounds like all the OP moan, no matter how verbose, based on 3-4 websites at most.

I think your being a bit harsh Xenia, not for the first time I'm sure:D

Very few of the OPs comments are unreasonable however, having said that I dont believe a blog is very necessary. btw, I think you have a fantastic website, good info,easy to navigate, and one of the best photos of an escort on the web [ gallery 2-- couch pic,bottom left].

guys are visual, and all things being equal, a few killer photos on a site do the business for me.

I was not harsh, I even did not started yet, lol.

I do appreciate the very articulate post from OP, even its only his second post. It will be nice to see his insights to the other people contributions here first, before he wrote this essay-at least for us to have a chance in the sense: "to judge him what he might be preaching" :confused:.

I did thought to dissect all the points in his post, but I am rather in the "could not be arsed" mode now. If you want, you can give me any of this points for dissection, and I will try to put my arse into gear. No promises though. :D

I understand why on your site you say you only do a few a week - no time for more - you spend the rest of the time posting on PN.

judging by your pics, I think you have already done that quite successfully !:D

a post should be assessed on its merits though--- not necessary to pass a test first ! the OP is right, sites are cheap to build and a well thought out site shows respect for the lady herself as much as the client.

Does it bother you, because you don't have such a freedom to do it: with your wifiey watching your every move, getting upset if you phoned switched off. Plus its not exactly convenient now to sneak in the cold garden shed from the family, with a lappy to download porn or post here. :confused:

To get back to the original question.

Maybe you ask a little too much.

Some examples;

Discretion; If someone saw a photo of me with just my eyes obscured they'd know who it was. I knew one girl whose real job was physiotherapist. She didn't dare advertise it in case it was linked to her by anyone in the business.

You complain about poor spelling. Well, at least it indicates that the site is likely to be the girl's own work. It's honest. With all the complaints about dishonesty I'd rather see that than a well written site only to find that the girl wasn't very well-educated and that the site wasn't her own work.

Age; one or two avoid quoting age which is a good indicator that they aren't spring chickens and many, if you read the info, give a pretty good indication of roughly where they are in the age stakes. Most knock a few years off so I always have found it sensible to add half a dozen on when it comes to expectations.

Services; FRs generally reveal these far better than the girl herself. In fact, my personal preference is for her to be a little vague and to find out via the FRs. Each to their own on that.

Blogs; I find them double edged. Some are good. Some, I'm sorry to say, I don't bother with. Too self serving and orientated to marketing. They do show the real woman......and that can be either a turn on or a turn off.

Whenever I have had to research I have found the variety of websites and blogs quite gratifying.

You just need to spend time looking.

If they all conformed to one type it would be boring.

After all, not everyone wants to go to see a well-educated red-headed MILF who is a qualified masseuse and prepared to be explicit about all her services.

Put it another way. If you come across a website that isn't very well written, not very informative and the girl has no FRs then the chances are she's new and probably young. So for you, and me, an easy choice.

There's plenty of others.

I think the key issue is discretion, and time, but i do completely agree with you

Why do ladies seem to think pictures of them sucking someone else is sexy-and with someone elses 'cum' on or in them, similarly their bums are all pretty much the same and one shot is enough, and why do some still insist in wearing their shoes in bed?

In my original post I should have acknowledged all those ladies who have at least taken the trouble and expense to establish websites, rather than simply relying on punter sites, and I apologise to every one of them for that oversight. After posting I had to reassure my good friend ladyofthemansion that I wasn't criticising her profile! She doesn't have a website - yet (that's me in trouble again!) - but trust me, there's nothing about the lady remotely worthy of criticism.

I don't think Xenia's comments about my post are harsh, nothing like a bit of Ukrainian spice to warm things up. I can assure you though, Xenia, I have looked at escort sites by the score. I hadn't previously come across yours (no pun intended), but it's exactly the type I like - very clear, articulate and intelligent, easily navigable, with good photos and lots of helpful information. Now I have seen it, next time I'm in the West Midlands I think I'd love to see your arse in gear (lol), although I promise to book with you as 'Opinionated Git'. (I just know that your site having received my personal seal of approval will give you a warm fuzzy glow inside.)

I am of course far too gallant to name sites which I feel are not up to the mark, although some of the very best - and worst - profiles I've seen are on The Punter Site Which Dare Not Speak Its Name. However, as to some of the very many individual sites I like, Picman, well, people like Passionate Penny and Ebony Pru have very informative sites; Hannah Gold's site reflects her intelligence and playful personality, and is a lot of fun; Champagne Lady and Curvy Christina (nice lady) have informative sites and are generous with their photos. I also like sites like Karen Sterling's, which is down to earth with a nice touch of wry humour. In my own area, the site I'm currently loving is the Braziliandesires, although the entire worldwide web is barely big enough to encapsulate Michelle's exuberant personality. I don't say all of these tick all my boxes but, like Xenia's, they're quality sites that show how well it can be done.

I also stressed that there is a huge variety.

I don't follow you. According to the OP some sites have poor spelling some don't.

To me it is logical that if there is poor spelling it is likely to be done by the girl herself.

I don't offer massage and never have.

Nor do I have any difficulty with spelling and can be just as pedantic but I would never recommend that anyone uses a spellchecker. Given that most of them are American based, the spelling would still be wrong.
