With all the recent discussion on the board regarding 'Negotiating'

or do cheaper rates = more work, etc.

What do members think the new Chancellors up coming budget will do to the average Punters, Punting frequency ?

It looks like V.A.T. will go to 20%, this is bound to have an effect on every households out goings.

Will W.g's lower their prices to remain busy ?

Will guy's be able to afford to Punt ?

Things look set to worsten this year, how do you think the industry will react ?

It is evident that the economic outlook will worsten and that punters will have less money to spend.

Girls will either have to reduce their prices or maintain their prices but offer fetishes such as BDSM and anal.

It is inevitable that the next 12 months will be hard on everybody.

The only offer I have seen over the past few years of the recession was "If both you and your friend hire an escort each, we'll send three round!"

So, either I am as stupid as they come and missed all these reduced rates- or they never happened.

Most women seemed to go for added value rather than lowered price

A significant slice of the economy is clandestine undeclared, cash in hand etc, thus take the economic forecasts with a strong pinch of salt. Most wgs are for various reasons registered to pay tax as childminders or whatever, but few if any declare anything like their real income. I also suspect that a significant no of customers are self employed, and they too are undeclaring their income, not only to the revenue but to their wives. Prices will come down, not cos their is a recession, but cos the no of new girls entering the profession.

I think this has been said and discussed ever since the recession started. A lot of the media reportage is hype and created to make news.

With the annualised CPI having just hit 3.7%, and VAT expected to rise, can you really be serious in asking whether people should be lowering their prices to continue trading?

That is a silly idea which can only lead to people going out of business, not into it. At best, you can just expect punting prices to remain fairly static, much as they have done over the past decade.

Erm.....Think you missed my point.

I am not suggesting WG'S 'should' lower their prices, I am asking will they ?

Given that after the budget most people with have less disposeable in their pockets, the first things to get cut back are lifes little luxouries.

Don't hold your breath waiting for a price reduction

All I can say is that since starting to punt (2005) the price of a session at the places I visit has never increased. Practically everything else in life has gone up in price, hasn't it? There's no VAT on punting (that I pay, anyway). As long as prices in the parlours remain stable I can look forward to keeping it up; if they (God forbid) increased I doubt I could. I don't imagine that prices will increase; its very profiitable, isn't it?!!

Some people will have less disposable income but I daresay those getting on a bit, who were thinking about their savings for a rainy day and have lost out in the stock market crash will think 'Bugger it, I'm going to party a little' and begin a life of punting. Igf anything the market may grow ;):

Fetishes are only a small part of the market already, do you have inside info that those who have a penchant for the fetish side of things will have more income than the vanilla ?

I see the next year as being interesting and plenty of opportunities to make money outside of escorting.

Mine won't change.

It looks like V.A.T. will go to 20%, this is bound to have an effect on every households out goings.

It won't bother me.

Will W.g's lower their prices to remain busy ?

I doubt it. The impact of a V.A.T. rate of 20% will raise their household and general spending outgoings.

Will guy's be able to afford to Punt ?

Yes, it's compulsive.

It depends upon which industry you are involved with. Some will be worse off than others.

That's a gross overstatement. It won't be hard on everyone. In fact, some might do quite well out of an increasingly competitive labour market and economy. You just need the skills, abilities and opportunities to succeed, or for want of a better phrase, the space to make your own luck. ;)

WGs prices have shuffled upwards

At any given time most blokes have a cash limit its as simple as that

where I used to go before new law it was 100 for hour , 60 for half hour

and that I felt was value for money

especially as most of the oriental WGs were attractive and worked for it, also a tip of 20 would ensure OWO uncovered

Why would they have to do that, perhaps they might just have to start offering bb or swallowing to get the rent paid every month. Bukakke may also be considered if times are hard enough.;):rolleyes:

I think most ladies will continue exactly how they are now, sometimes busy, sometimes quiet. Some may offer the odd discount occasionally but i would have thought that would be it really. A lot of ladies already offer an exstensive services list.
