Adultwork Alternatives

57 posts in this topic

Just wondering if there are any recommendations for other sites similar to Adultwork? I think AW is great but always on the look out for more choice and variety - it is the spice of life after all.

Thanks in advance

I don't think there is anything in the world bigger than the AW database..... I am surprised there isn't anyone out there to have taken it to this level.

Try the Punternet facilities, The biggest advantage in using PN is that its not full of ads from people selling their movies!

I have to say I use the PN search facility and it works for me - I hear what people say when they say that AW is a great search searching resource but I don't have confidence in it - it seems to be the kind of wild west of punting - I appreciate that it is a fact of life but I don't have much confidence in it - I like to have the confidence that I am dealing with an independent WG and also many profiles are dubious to say the least - not to mention bait and switch merchants, I would ban the very mention of the word bareback (WTF) etc etc. 

 

Navigating one's way around AW is a veritable nightmare IMHO.

 

Each to their own but I recommend PN and use it - AW scares the beejesus out of me for the reasons stated above.

As you rightly say HP, each to their own. I stumbled across AW before I even knew about PN or any other punting related sites, and a long time before I started punting.

I spent time finding my way around and used it when I decided to take the plunge. I'd agree there are more than a few scams / fake profiles but I'm fairly confident I can pick a genuine wg. No doubt I'll come unstuck next time! AW is still probably my main resource, in fact I recently saw a new (to me) wg who I contacted after seeing her AW profile, and unbeknown to me she advertises on here and has her own website...

Maybe I need to use PN for a little more than just posting crap on here! :P

You could try googling. However agencies and directories will come up if you just put in a something like' Hounslow escort' so be more specific to suit your needs so use words which are important to you eg Blonde, busty, English, tall, anal, fisting,etc escort and add 'independent' too to try filter out the agencies etc. (Put in an area too obviously) 

 

No harm in having a go. I'd also suggest that anyone who bothers to set up and maintain a website is more likely to be genuine and they often put links to reviews. Once you've found someone you might fancy google her name again to see what else comes up.

I use AW almost exclusively but I try to avoid EE girls unless I have seen good reviews elsewhere.

Very few of the WGs who are on PN are not also on AW - the reverse is not true. Because of this  I've always found AW provides more returns for an identical search of what I'm looking for.

 

Just did identical searches again and it still does.

 

PN is good for other info and this forum, plus the reviews. But then I don't do all my shopping at the same supermarket! :D

I like PN for the reviews but I wish the searching was better by location. It's hard to search easily on PN I find. I'm London and it's a big place. You have to search for specific words like Marylebone or Paddington. And getting up a summary that had, girls name, agency, amount per hour, recommendation would be the best. For me price, location and recommendation are the key things.

I think AWs searching is easier for locations and gives a lot more choice by location.

AW is fine for searching out escorts but, after finding any possibles I run their details through PN to see what comes up; sometimes I find out more info which helps my decision making.

Punternet does have its own database with search facilities here 

 

http://www.punternet.com/index.php/directory

 

Which is now 100% paid-for only adverts, excluding a huge number of girls, even those frequently reviewed here. Not remotely a substitute for AW as it stands IMHO, but that's the way G decided to take things.

Punternet is the only directory I know where you can enter a city name in the search and get back a list of girls where not a single one on the first page of results is in that city. I mentioned this nearly a year ago here but I notice it still hasn't been changed, so I guess it's intentional.

Actually thats not so. You can have either a free membership, a silver or a gold. What you do have to do is bother to set up a profile like you do on aw which costs a lot more per month than punternet does even if you have a gold member ship..A HELL of a lot more. The only reason those girls are not on here is because they have not bothered to set up a database listing, dont blame punternet blame the girls, putting all your eggs in one basket is daft imo. NONE of those aw girls are exluded from setting up a pnet advert, why dont you suggest it to all the aw girls you meet.

 

aw does give you a free profile yes but its shite for business to just go with the free profile. You have to at least put yourself in the local section which is 1.50 per day, you have to pay a quid per day for your phone number to be listed, these help get you more bookings but if you really want to be noticed on aw amongst the heaving hoardes you have to pay to be as available each day you work which is 5 per day. So this works out at 7.50 per day, 15 for two days, 22.50 for 3 days and a whopping 30 for FOUR DAYS whereas the gold member ship on punternet costs 30 for  A MONTH and you have your phone number permanently listed plus you can click to show as available on any day and its FREE...

 

You should tell all those ladies about punternet then they may sign up rather than just bitch about it inaccurately

 

When it comes to aw if you think the search engine works perfectly you  must be nuts. I go to buckinghamshire and only half the girls listed there are even listed as in buckinghamshire...unless heathrow is bucks nowadays. In fact if you put a town into the search section of aw even then girls in loads of other towns show up 

 

Here, I put milton keynes into the database and look, ONLY milton keynes based girls and agencies came up

I put bedford into the search on punternet and only bedford girls showed up

You do remember to click down to a lower surrounding radius dont you , its a default at a 100 miles radius, this may be your problem lol

 

did london too..surprise, only london based providers showed up

Post code and location search working fine for me. and if you don't apply for a listing you don't get one.

...and one of the biggest problems that AW has is that the WGs are listing multiple locations to draw in the punters, one recent search I was looking for somewhere Liverpool street and up popped a listing, fired off an email and in fact she was located in Borough, she was listed in five locations but offering incalls, something the PN search facility avoids.

No free option exists. Bronze accounts were "upgraded" to Silver in case you missed that, which requires a monthly fee. You might want to check your facts before accusing others of "bitching about it inaccurately".

 

As for the search, try Bristol. No actual girls in the Bristol area show up on the first 2 pages. Sure you could change the radius, but that's no excuse for poor design. No other directory I've seen operates that way. On AW it's trivial to get results from just the city I choose, literally 2 drop down menus.

AW's postcode / area search ain't all that...

Search 10 miles of Liverpool for example and you get Irish wg's in your search. Even if Ireland was 10 miles away from Liverpool as the crow flies (which it isn't) - there's the small matter of the Irish Sea to negotiate if you're looking for an incall...

Yeah, search indexes update periodically, that how they work. The search now returns 3 results for Bristol out of 20 on the first two pages. Not exactly a huge improvement, and the situation will be different the next time the index updates.

So your first point criticising it doesn't really stand if it continues to change.

By all means if it was that bad I doubt so many people would use Punternet as a facility to find a good escort.

Hate to correct you Chloe, but PN has discontinued their free advertising services. Only silver and gold now. However you are right AW is rubbish as a provider for works full time or who needs to make good money without paying for the phone number or the local escort thing.

 

In fact nearly all directories have a basic free facility but charge for more prominent ads or additional info or pictures etc. 

 

As far as I can tell the PN search facility seems to work ok!

Oh okay, well that must have been a fairly recent thing though.

 

Still, 15 for a month is far cheaper than aw on there you get 2 days for that money.
