Giving Punting Up As A Bad Job

46 posts in this topic

Well, after many years (25+), I've more or less concluded that its not what its made out to be.

 

The frustration of none returned messages, trying to find someone locally who floats one's boat/offers the services one seeks.

 

Then the meeting not living up to expectations. Didn't quite click. Didn't feel comfortable. Came too soon, didn't come at all.

 

The image that one had in one's mind didn't materialise. Even the fictional review didn't show the truth of the punt.

 

Maybe a bit of guilt, worry about being caught.

 

That's where I am at this time...

Two questions - Pollyp

 

Is it partly because Swindon is now a punting desert?  It used not to be, I had very many good punts there in my early days ten years ago.

 

Where have you been finding the majority of your punts? Is it A/W? If so I can understand your high failure rate.

It has taken you a quarter of a century to realise it is not for you...... surely you had some good times?

 

There are men out there who give up after the first experience if it was not what they hoped for... and those who gave it a second go and discovered

it was the best thing they did.

 

You have had more than your fair share of bad luck if you have not one memorable time to reflect upon...... was it really always so bad?  :unsure:

You have not disclosed your age but I bet that is a factor in your "strike rate". Consider meeting ladies closer to your age; don't try, on a first meeting, to scale the heights of ecstasy, keep doing what you know you enjoy and, finally, broaden your horizons.

 

Good luck.

Yes, its Swindon...

 

And yes, AW, but where else is there?

Maybe take a six month break and see how you feel after that ? Surely if you have been getting regular sex for 25 years, you'll miss it once it's gone ? Never say never.

Perhaps rather than a feeble punt every week or two, save the money up and go for something special every couple of months. Bristol or London aren't that far away by train and you could combine a good day out with a quality punt.

Best of luck, whatever you decide.

So what's your secret then SiE ? If there is a source of WGs with a higher quality to rubbish ratio than Adultwork, we'd all like to hear about it.

I sympathise - I live near Huntingdon - it's a desert here too.

 

But I think lack of availability is not your issue is it

 

still - if an alchy drank himself purple for 25 years and suudenly said - it's not me I'm giving up - would anybody believe him/her?

I have just read on another thread that you reckon 40 out of the last 50 girls you have seen didn't french kiss. If I was in that position, I would be considering joining Pollyp23 in retirement, not offering advice on how to improve his experience :D.

It is hard to find a girl who ticks all the boxs but they are out there but very few awesome ones. You just have to keep trying.

If you have become bored, dissatisfied and disappointed, it makes sense to stop. The day I no longer get a sense of pleasure from the things and activities I enjoy, I'll stop spending my hard-earned (yes, really) money on it. You can always come back after a break - nothing is written in stone. Maybe change the way you research your punts? Stop relying on feedback, and spend more time on preliminary chats with the WGs whose pictures and websites appeal? If she doesn't sound as good as she looks, don't book. See if you can find a reliable agency and build a rapport with the owner?

Meanwhile, absolutely - why not give it a break. No good punting just out of habit or boredom.

The reality is this industry is like no other: in an office people would not dare to swear at you or distort your words or make funny comments........ besides worse scenarios.  I have the highest respect for people who think of the future and plan accordingly..... and sometimes I wonder if a life coach would be good to keep us on track from school until we get old, just the way a personal trainer would make sure his clients achieve their goal.

Got to agree about London. Get into Paddington and enjoy a coffee & muffin and load up at the ATM. Off for a punt and even a champagne bar back at the station for a post punt quaff if you picked a winner.

I sort of agree with you.  It can be find to find someone reliable and suitable for your needs.   If you have done it for 25 years and its not living up to expectations then perhaps save your money and have a nice holiday instead.  I saw a lovely young lady today and I would say we clicked ok, sex was good and lasted a long time for me which is good for cumonce!  However, I some times have an empty feeling afterwards.  It may fulfil the physical elements but it doesn't always work for the emotional or psychological side for us.

Adultwork whilst being the biggest directory out there I think one day will have had its day. Its getting too big, the security aspects they are introducing to protect clients from scammers is having a bad effect on some genuine escorts. Verification pictures with names and addresses attached are being emailed from client to client via some websites thus creating a lack of trust with escorts as adult work have no way to secure your details even if you hide your verification picture.

 

I have met some guys recently who have just discovered adult work and whilst they said its like discovering an adult sweetshop even they have noticed already the amount huge troll capacity the site has. I have also met guys recently who used to use that site and now dont bother with it at all preferring to use other sites such as punternet, punter link and the many others that are out there as they find the sites themselves more trustworthy and the people they meet via those sites to be far more likely to be genuine escorts.

 

There are lots of guys out there who do not use aw as a resource, if you are finding it a waste of your time Polly then just do what they do, dump adult work and search the internet and the plethora of other escorting directories out there. Yes I know that some of the profiles on there are older ones but at the end of the day so are plenty on adult work and at least the other directory sites have far less scammers as the scammers take the easy aw route and tend to leave the other directories mostly alone x

After a really rubbish punt last week with a boring, disinterested, way fatter than her pictures, girl (who sounded really good on the phone) I, too, was extremely despondent.  Is it me?  am I too old? am I too grumpy? do all the bits not work well? will I ever enjoy it again?  You get the picture I think.  

 

So it seemed to me that I had a choice, which was to say bugger it and give up or get back in the saddle (or on the bike...) and try and get my confidence back with a great punt.  I chose the latter option and, stone me, was that the right choice.

 

I met a girl not far from me (ten minutes in the car or for the three stops on the train) who looked very attractive indeed in her AW private gallery and who came across really well in her profile but possibly a bit up herself.   I had already emailed her once through AW, when she didn't come back to me until it was too late, (hence the punt mentioned above) so I wasn't surprised when I didn't get a response again.  So I sent a text mentioning the AW email and this got me a response to the effect that she was free and could do the late evening booking. I had mentioned.  The next morning I telephoned and she seemed very OK on the phone, not quite what I had expected, but worth following up nonetheless.  Got it all sorted and agreed to confirm on the morning.

 

A  text with the postcode arrived which wasn't quite what I expected (a bit downmarket at first glance) but a quick recce on the way home from work the day before confirmed that was all OK.  On the morning, I sent a text at nine to confirm and nothing.  I sent another text at two asking if the first text had been received and nothing.   I telephoned at three and left a message to say that unless I heard from her, I wouldn't be turning up.

 

At four I got a call to say that we were still good to go and that she had been shopping so out all day.   I left work a bit early to get home and get a shave before my weekly appointment for other matters, then returned home for a shower. a duty call to the wife who was away on business and then off to meet the girl.  By which time I was a bit rushed and quite tense and quite happy not to bother at all.

 

There's no other way of putting it.  Fuck me, her place was amazing.  A penthouse flat shared with a relative who was rarely there, a huge open plan thing over three floors with views over the city (and this from the Kent border....) and probably a good million quid or more.    I'm let in and meet a vision.  Not only a vision, but a vision who was so sweet and charming and friendly that I was at ease before I got through the door. 

 

She had no wine. Could I take this note and just pop round to the offie and get some.  Ten minutes later I'm back, sitting on the sofa in the crazy flat with the vision.  And it just got better and better.  To say we clicked would be an almighty understatement.  She had no plans and I was welcome to stay as long as I wanted.  We could sit and chat and then head upstairs or whatever I felt like.   I felt like chatting so we did before we headed upstairs for the most fun punt I have ever had, involving coming back downstairs and shagging on the sofa with the view of the city (and anyone with binoculars looking....), shagging upstairs in every postion I could manage and sustain, more chat and eventually her trying something new, at her suggestion, which ultimately she didn't enjoy but which caused so much laughter I thought I would never stop.  Much chat in between, much of it hilarious and intimate.  And all for less than my maximum outlay figure which I will not exceed under any circumstances.

 

I am still on a high after two days and going past her place on the train this morning, I just laughed out loud.  So I have discovered that it can be pretty damn good, and if it can be for me it can be for you too.  I was ready to pack it up and never have sex with anyone but me again to be honest but this single punt has enlivened me massively.   So don't give up but just get your sights set right, be a bit discriminating and bide your time.

 

And by the way, while the vision didn't exactly swear me to secrecy - no review please - it would be less than tactful to name names so I will not be doing so.  And I will be going back but not for a while as I don't want to overdo it in any way.

PS..The flat was not rented either and I reckon my price estimate was out by al least 50%.
