I know it's stating the obvious but Punternets very own field reports or SPAB?

Google usually brings up directories and websites for the location you search for eg 'Escort town or city'

It's not stating the obvious! Pn only allows the same escort to be reviewed by the same punter every 6 months. The escort I was thinking about only has a handful of clients.

Spab?

Punternet (obvs), Punterlink, Abbey's Orchids, Juicy Escorts, Ava Escorts, SelectAnEscort.... and that is just for non-London specific.

 

I have a whole additional list of London specific sites.

Nothing that really matches the level of variety as AW - but if you spend time researching, google and others listed above, i'd be surprised if you don't find someone decent.

 

I do prefer looking through latest reviews on PN and UKP and cross referencing the positive reviews with profiles/websites.

 

Quite an efficient way of wading through the crap.

It reads as SPAC but doesnt read well, but your dues and you can update the Punternet Calendar, it's usually pretty busy on there.

I always find it kind of interesting when people say this. Pretty much everyone I know advertises on a huge variety of sites, which would imply that the variation shouldn't be THAT different between sites....I mean, I realize I don't know every escort out there (hah!) but I don't know anyone who ONLY uses AW.

Then the thousands of punters who do are stupid! They limit themselves in regards information and choice!

I have said this in the past and been to some people odd... Here goes again! I have never used AW, never booked a sex worker via AW and never cross reference a sex worker on AW.. I also never will!

Maybe, but why would you? Like, you wouldn't run an advert for your company in only one magazine, you'd run it in several as it increases your likelihood of being seen. Or at least a few. This is these women's livelihoods, and lots of sites don't charge to list services. *shrugs* I guess I just don't understand why a SP would ONLY use AW.

I tend to book ladies who have their own websites and when they do invariably they advertise on other forums.

 

I have seen many ladies who only advertise on AW - it never seems to occur to them to have their own website - which I often encouraged them to do but AW seems their patch and they like it.

 

I compared AW to the Wild West - you know just like the Wild West there are good guys and bad guys - but lots of bad guys - bandits, scam artists, pimps, bait and switch, misleading information - a veritable nightmare in my opinion despite all that verification photo's and the essentially flawed feedback system.

 

Of course the ladies I see who have websites are often on AW as I understand it AW comes with the territory it is a fact of life for most SP#s.

 

I would love to see a AW equivalent run by WG's - I get the impression AW is run by greedy men who seem rather ruthless (I could be wrong) - PN is much better of course and there are some similarities - but there is no booking system etc.

 

I am all for a new AW run by the WG's - I'd be one of the first to sign up :)

Ok, so we've established there are plenty of alternatives to AW. I'm just saying AW seems to have the largest database. It's a bit of a mixture, a potential minefield if you don't research, but there are a lot of great WGs on there.

 

I used to use escort agencies - i'd say that method is still a good way to hook up with goodlooking escorts, but if you're into independents then try it. I'd say most punters and indies use AW.

I have only slowly become aware of other sites than Pnet, UKP and AW.

 

English Escorts is the latest I have seen and I don't think Backpage and Birchplace have been mentioned above.

 

But the first three surely have the biggest coverage and looking at much more restricted sites just seems inefficient.

 

But of course if someone finds them more productive, well done to them.

 

There is certainly an opportunity for someone to collate all the pros and cons of different sites though it would probably be hidden behind a paywall.

 

Anyone ingenious enough to come up with a gocompare type site to gives us poor downtrodden fuckers the tools to tool up and use our tools to best sexual and economic effect?

The comment was about WGs not punters

Oh there are literally hundreds of directories out there, it takes a few minutes and a laptop or smart phone to find most of them. Its not hard.If someone wants to limit themselves to just aw then to be honest they are daft because there are a lot of ladies out there who are genuine who will not use aw for many reasons or who got kicked off for refusing to verify, and I dont blame them. So you really are cutting out a big chunk of the pie if you only stick to aw. Just get googling, its really easy. The daft escorts arent the ones who dont use aw, they are the ones who ONLY use aw

I am sure that there was a very similar thread only a few weeks ago.

Very interesting that people who I assume would use Google to find information or businesses don't try it for purchasing sexual services.

Add the word independent to your search. Should remove the agencies.
