Full Face Photographs

67 posts in this topic

While I fully understand why a WG would not wish to publish full face photographs, I wonder to what extent, if any, this might affect the number of bookings they get.

 

In my youth (well, relative youth when I first started punting) it didn't bother me that much - in those days I almost exclusively used Funplace in Birmingham and had wonderful times with a number of girls there (Ameera and Morgan were my two favourites) very few of whom had full, unblurred photographs on the website. This was because the girls there got consistently good reviews and also because it soon became apparent I could trust Jayne (the proprietor) for a recommendation.

 

However, with the sad demise of Funplace, the increasing grumpiness that comes with increasing age has made me very picky and I now prefer to see girls who are, to me, both facially and physically attractive - it has therefore been a long time since I booked a girl who didn't have a clear picture on her website. 

 

I would be interested to hear the views of others (both punters and WGs) on this.

I would never show my face because it would be social suicide,   I have never had any problems when anyone has met me.  Nobody has left because of my face.  In short this has never affected my business, and I doubt it will.

I have never worried about a girl having no face shots.

I tend to get attracted to what and how she writes about herself on her profile. Words often paint as vivid a picture as a photo.

I have yet to be disappointed with a choice made solely on words rather than pictures.

Spot on.  I go by profile, pics (mainly body) and feedback reports.  If everything clicks and a WG has plenty of good feedback it's very unlikely you will be disappointed.  I don't mean any disrespect to any facially challenged women out there because I'm hardly any oil painting myself.  But if they have a good feedback record it's unlikely you'll be disappointed.  Let's face it, in the society  we currently live in a lady has to  protect her identity so she would have to be pretty sure of her herself to post facial pictures on the web.  If she's child less and single maybe, but other escorts have more to protect

The general consensus is that I have a beautiful face, I look much younger than my age, my skin has almost no flaws, so there is no reason to hide it - so the fact that I would never, ever publish face pics is a non-issue to me. I even decided to no longer have a website as I have too much to lose.

I think by not booking girls without visible faces you will simply be less likely to meet a certain type of WG and more likely to book foreign girls with little to lose in terms of reactions from their social circle. If that's ok for, carry on ;)

For me , displaying of the face is important for me to make the punt. However I would not hesitate punting with a girl who has outstanding reviews and their face blurred.

Interesting point, I hadn't thought about it in that way, but I think you are right.  I think those who wish to see full face photos are seeking certainty of outcome which I think is something of an illusory concept in punting.

 

I take varying degrees of risk when choosing someone I haven't seen before, and some of my very best experiences have come from making what appeared to be a risky choice, little feedback, photos that didn't show much or any face.  The way a website assuming an indie, or even a profile is written can give a lot of underlying clues to the SPs approach.  Of course taking a risk by not having the certainty of facial photos or other info means it can go wrong :eek: , but my mistakes have not stemmed particularly from lack of a face photo.

Errrr  any lady who has never shown her face will not know if her business is affected,..... unless of course a pile of men ask her to show it and when she refuses they do not book her.  

 

No one has ever asked me to show my face in my photos.  No one has turned tail and fled when they have seen it up close.

 

English girls who are happy having unblurred pics baffle me.  I know one lady who always blurs..... but she has one shot of her lying on her bed... it is an upside down shot to the camera without a face blur.... all you need do is turn you page the other way and there she is..... pretty though!  ;)

 

I mentioned it to her but she has not done anything to change it.

Thing is Lynn aren't men supposed to be obsessed with the purely physical?  That is having their dick pleasured.  If that were truly so you must ask yourself where does facial attraction fit in?  After all it's a relatively small part of the body

Obviously i would prefer a WG i am interested in to have a full face photo of what she looks like now in the present. However, if i excluded WGs who didnt show their faces in their advertising i would of missed out on punting with some excellent WGs.

I've done both since I started advertising online; when I first started it was in the newspapers where there were no photos, rates or services shown and nobody ever ran screaming from the room. It makes virtually no difference to business in my experience - punters who like what they see will book, and different punters like to see different things.

I'm perfectly happy and contented with my pictures and far more so than when I had to find endless ways to make the back of my head look interesting although I'm not technically English, nor am I a girl (or at least I haven't been since 1991 or thereabouts :D). Other people are fine with having gynae/porno pictures of themselves online which would make me flinch - each to her own.

I am, however, dying to know what this 'certain type' of WG is?

You and I haven't seen eye to eye in the past Amy yet, for what it's worth I always admire your honesty.  It's lovely to see full face pics of you, you're a lovely looking woman and brave for showing your full face.  Yet I can also understand why it would  be more difficult for other WGs.  Can I ask what was it that made you decide to go the full on option?  And do you think your business is better as a result?

Well I have always shown my face.This was partly I think from naivete and partly because I had a defiant 'so what' kind of attitude.For me the worse has already happened and I was outed so no point in me blurring my face now.I don't seem to get that many more bookings than other wgs I am friends with so could I have blurred my face from the off and done ok?Probably so.But hey escorting is one of those things you learn as you go along especially as an indy.I am what I am and I look as I do and I'll deal with things as I go along.

I would prefer to see a girl's face before booking, of course. But it's completely understandable why most don't and it's not that big a deal to me - the girl's attitude, enthusiasm and personality have a much larger bearing on how much I'll enjoy myself. Though plenty of feedback and reviews do put my mind at ease a bit. Only once have I booked a girl and been disappointed in her facial appearance (I guess I'm pretty easily pleased in this regard compared to some), I still left having thoroughly enjoyed myself because she was very enthusiastic and skilled in the bedroom. 

 

Not sure if I'm imagining it or not, but it seems like there is a much smaller proportion of girls who show their face in in Glasgow and Edinburgh compared to when I've searched in cities down south - so I've only ever booked one girl who had face pictures (turned out to be probably my least enjoyable booking incidentally!).

I'd agree with that. I understand the desire not to show a face picture, but neither do I wish to see 'headless' shots either. I still like to try and have some kind of idea. Not a deal breaker. Just a strong preference.

On Adultwork reverse bookings, girls often offer to send a face pic. Often its them fully dressed in a social situation or whatever.

On my last reverse booking I had around 70 responses, but I ended up making a booking with the 2 girls that sent me a pic like that. It really seperated them from the crowd.

Just one data point anyway.

You can tell an awful lot by looking at a face. I'd propably be quite happy booking with just a face to go by. When it comes down to it I'm more interested in the personality. If you can ignore the person by focusing on the body only you might as well have a robot. I wonder are the girls who don't have face pix treated more like a robot?

I'll give you an example. After my post here I was just looking through my old bookmarks and came across Tantric Massage, had a good browse and was on the point of making a booking for myself and my GF when I went to the "About Us" link and saw a face pix (there is only a 3/4 pic and the face pic) of the masseuse. No way would I like any kind of massage from her. It would have been a big mistake.

I've never really worried about needing a face picture. To be honest, I assume that if a WG is making a decent living from this business, then she is unlikely to be one of Cinderella's sisters in looks. Indeed, it adds a certain frisson to a punt when you have little idea what the person behind the door looks like facially. Of course there have been occasional disappointments, but never one severe enough to make me want to walk (unlike age and size surprises, for which I have walked).

I particularly remember one statuesque english 6 footer with a body to die for who was on the plainer side facially. My initial impression on being shown into the flat was "what a shame, but lets make the best of it". It turned out that she was an amazing kisser, a sexual tigress and had very broad range of services and I had the most amazing hour of my life, cumming three times in the hour. I left with wobbly knees and a huge smile and returned to see her a couple times more before she unfortunately moved on. I would probably never have booked her if she had shown a face photo, but I would have missed out on something really special.

I think with reference to what Bibi posted, she started out showing her face, you chose not to.  Some part-time WGs will start out not showing their face, and never progress to doing so, in fact they will never progress beyond working part-time or very occasionally. 

 

In that sector, however that be defined, ruling out face photos rules out a particularly high proportion of providers.  I would add that many part-timers have a normal day job, some would not even accept the description of WG, but one fairly certain thing is that if their face photo were to be connected with escorting activity by a day job work colleague that their day job would rightly or wrongly be in severe jeopardy.  I think there are ladies on here who have experienced just such problems :(

With the best will in the world, if somebody wants to out a lady they don't need a face pic. Virtually every lady I know which this has happened to hasn't shown her face and face pics only make it harder to deny - if somebody rings up and makes a booking, they'll soon find out whether Dirty Doris of Dagenham is who they think it is or not, no matter how much you insist that it was all down to The Evil Mister Mad Ex who made a malicious Adultwork profile with your photos on. And as for my 'choosing' not to have face pics when I started online advertising, it wasn't an informed choice but rather that I was told I 'shouldn't' (and since I was used to having no pictures at all, it made sense at the time). The more pictures I took, the more I found that I liked the ones showing my face better than the ones which didn't :).

 

I can appreciate that people working in occupations where being found to be a part time prostitute would result in dismissal would take every step they could to avoid being discovered, but if that was me and my day job was important to me, I wouldn't advertise at all and I probably wouldn't be doing it. It doesn't require a mug shot to be caught out if somebody's determined they've spotted you, and I also don't believe that day jobs were anything to do with what the poster I was responding to was talking about regarding 'types' of prostitute, either.

 

As I said, each to her own - there's no difference in the level of business for either type of pictures in my experience, and just like everything else it's down to personal preference :).
