January Blues + Trade

29 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone...

Well its back to normality post christmas and Im looking forward to it. Like a lot of people im determined to get fitter....was reading this thing in the press about a diet where you only consume protein and good fats and you're meant to shed fat in a matter of weeks..surely this cant be good in the longrun. Sorry I digress, but im doing the normal new years thing about zero booze in Jan and curtail the expenditure due to xmas excess..

Was wondering from the wg experience is punting like other consumer industries where there's a slight lull in trade during Jan as we wait for the tax bills, the credit card payments etc...or is custome pretty steady throughout. I imagine theres a wide divergence depending on many variables.

January last year wasn't bad for me! It's February/March that can be surprisingly quiet! Not only escorting but on cam aswell! It's like a desert lol x

God...sounds like there's going to be a lot of frustrated guys out there in Jan...holding off until the pay cheque comes through. Spend it wisely!

It is for those of us who like grown-up, unshaved women.  You know, March Hare and all that :-)

haha well we are all grown up in this  industry. Jan is fine, feb is fine but slower and march dies. I can't imagine having a larger than life pube garden would make you any busier than anyone else unless of course there is a ban on non pube punting during march

What is May like then, you know when the Sap is rising and young men's fancy turn to lurv. I have yet to do a full year of escorting. Does that make me a yearling? In my dreams maybe.

August being quiet isn't surprising at all - its the middle of the school holidays so more people are off work and while in some circumstances this would increase the opportunities to punt overall I'd say it would decrease them - a combination of being at home thus more noticeable if you nip away for a few hours, actually being on holiday, having gone on holiday/about to go on holiday thus needing to preserve disposable income etc.

 

If you drive to work (I used to have a morning and evening motorway commute to work) its noticeably quieter in the summer, august especially.

Not to intrude on an intra-girl conversation but what, pray tell, is a "cockwomble" when it's at home?  I presume it's not a penile dwelling denizen of Wimbledon Common?  I ask if only to clarify whether it's a genus with which I might self-identify? :-)

Its just another word for a knobhead,assclown,bellend,moron etc. You don't self identify with any of that surely to goodness!

Well, as Wittgenstein put it, "The limits of my language mean the limits of my world."  So while I may not self identify, you and Sarita have made my world a bigger place -- albeit by no more than a cockwomble's worth :-) x

The bit between Xmas and new year was manic for me, and like Bibi I spent the weekend fielding off idiots who seemed to have found my number but had no idea where I was, what I offered or what I looked like... *sigh* 

 

I think I know when it's going to be busy or quiet (after 5 years in this game) but then it does something totally different- no rhyme of reason if it's going to be busy or not for me!

Bloody hell, I hope he was wrong - for some people's sakes!

I gave up predicting patterns a long time ago! Though there definitely is some built up frustration after Christmas and the credit card bills have not arrived yet.

and the effect of early and late easters.

I can understand why January is a month when trade in all things falls away. When I was a boy, the stores used to hold "January Sales" in a bid to buck the trend. Nowadays, what with Black Friday (an awful US import) and the steady drip of price reductions and "special offers" , the large corporations are trying to minimise the effect; As far as punting goes, most of us have bills which were  run up in the lead up to the festive season to meet, possible summer holiday deposits to find and, don't forget, there's a recession on!!

Really? I thought that was on the way out. Anyway, you are the last person to have to worry about the arse end of the recession surely
