Is punting a luxury?

Reading some of the comments on some of the price threads it would almost seem as if punting is one of the main necessities of life, right up there with food and water.

Surely punting is a luxury and not a necessity?

I'd say it is... and I am well aware that some of my clients have to save etc and I appreciate that... others however treat it like a God given right.

Hmmmmmmmmmm, tricky one, in my case I would re-phrase the question slightly, "Surely sex is a luxury and not a necessity?", I wouldn't go so far as to say sex is a necessity but I would hate to live off the difference between it and a necessity.

Not a necessity, but some would say it is addictive x

Maybe thats the reason people complain about price, its become out of control and unless the price drops they wont be able to get their fix.

It's definitely a luxury, being able to punt and being confident enough to do it. As an outsider (hopefully not for long) i know that i would see it as a complete luxury to do what you guys do, total Heaven. Being able to just say to yourself, "hmm i'll go up there later and see who's there to shag". Some people don't realise how lucky they are to have the confidence for that. I'd brick it just writting a number into my phone lol or starting a journey to a walk-in or something.

I think it really depends on the lifestyle of the punter.....

I'm sure either way the company of a good woman is always a necessity...;)

For me, absolutely.

When money was tight last year I had no problem stopping; punting when we were reining in spending at home would have been as absurd as going out for a Michelin-starred meal when your electricity is about to be cut off.

Thankfully, things are much better now ;)

Its not a luxury when you have been at it for the previous two decades, habit forming is more to mind.

But when you have to quit cigarettes because of health.

Drink because you have seen what it does to others.

Drugs because you never really got into it.

But hey its a good habit to have.

yes thats a fair point. the guys who punt very often , addictively, need to keep some element of control on how much they spend and its in their interests to keep a lid on the pricing. I'm fast becoming an addict!;)

More and more I come to thinking that some people are so addicted they have no compassion or understanding of others any longer and cannot think as far as their next soulless fuck, which they grudge paying for.

Yes, without a doubt punting is a luxury --------- a little bit like riding in a taxi, it is not essential.

I am taking less money than I took two years ago -------- that is why I find it hard to believe that some ladies have more work than they can handle.

Restaurants and pubs are suffering however WG's are as busy as ever, sorry but I refuse to accept that. ;)

Using the term luxury depends on what price bracket you punt in, and your usual frequency. As JRC regularly points out, there are girls who are away with the fairies with the £300-500/hr charges. Now that is luxury, IMHO. A bit like first class travel.

I punt every 8-10 weeks as a rule, and never pay more than £150/hr, finding punts at £100/hr incall (or less) equally acceptable. I could actually manage a £100 punt every month, but am saving for an expensive holiday.

And there is the danger with agreater frequency it becomes an addiction, rather than a treat.

That does not apply to me.

I have no problem at all finding girls who charge sensible prices, when I do a search on the other site it throws up hundreds of possibles, anyone who thinks I am telling lies check it out for yourself.

It depends on who their customers are. If there customers are cabbies, going on your experience they are probably less busy.

On the other hand, if their customers are admiistrators, life is probably pretty good at the moment.

Dont forget that price differentiation attracts different customers. Works just like in cabbie land, just because a mini cabber may have it tough at the moment, that does not mean automatically mean the limo driver is suffering, and vice versa.

One could see a streetgirl instead of an escort, or visit a parlour instead of seeing an indie.

I know guys who work in both ends of the sector, even the limo sector is suffering as companies try to cut back on expenses. ;)

It varies though, despite many people struggling last year, it was one of the best years for cinema takings ever. The same applies in other areas, whilst a lot of pubs struggled, sales for music and comedy gigs rose.

Whilst taking a taxi is one sort of a luxury, going out to an event or booking an hour with a girl is another - there's certainly been a fair few times I've decided to walk home rather than getting a cab, in the knowledge that I'll be able to use that money to have fun elsewhere.

I'm not saying that that no women will have been affected by the recession, but the ones who have positive fr's and a great reputation shouldn't be.

Plus it shouldn't be forgotten that whilst if effected some people, I know of many who it made no change to their lives at all.

So if I understand it correctly, a £300 an hour girl is a luxury and a £100 an hour girl a necessity?
