Worst of Punternet?
« on: 21 September 2011, 10:53:15 am »
Some blogger has trawled through the reviews at Punternet for the 'worst' ones. I'm not really sure what they're trying to achieve. Some of them are pretty funny:

Quote
Semi next to parade of shops. Safe enough. House known in the neighborhood. A few shouts of ?pervert? from the kids outside the off-license.

Quote
More interested in drinking the Lambrusco and Fanta she brought with her.

but others are quite horrid:

Quote
When she get on to ride me, I noticed some percular cloth in her virgina or bum, and she kept using her hands to cover the area. Switch her to missionary , and noticed her bum hole is stuffed with bandage cloth. I suspect she have make been injured by the previous punter in an A-Level session.

I think this is a classic case of someone thinking they're just laughing at stupid punters, but not quite understanding that WGs are human and sometimes in pretty tough circumstances. I was going to leave a comment to try and say that I understand some of the quotes are funny, but others appear to describe abused or desperate people and perhaps they should decide if they're writing a funny blog entry or an expose. In the end I couldn't think how best to put it, so didn't write anything. If you're feeling more of an eloquent spokeswoman, please go ahead!

Oh my god, reviews wherein the prossie is criticised for having some major personal problems - you know the ones, where a punter stays and pays despite walking into what was obviously a crack den/pimp-run flat/house full of children, and then just goes home to complain on the Internet about having spent his money stupidly instead of doing anything to help (such as not staying and paying in the first place) - I just can't bear them!!

I had a quick look at that site but they aren't doing anything except replicating content that was created on Punternet by certain people who are foolish at best and deeply unpleasant at worst. I'm pretty sure Punternet is mocked by every non-punting person who happens across it anyway. Sure, making that mockery public on a website just makes those people look even sillier and more ineffectual/uncaring than the original bad FRs (note: I'm not criticising FRs that legitimately call out escorts who are scammers and/or rip-offs, just the ones where they've stayed and payed despite obviously meeting an escort in an awful situation), but I don't think it's anything more offensive than the original content. Pointless, but no worse.

I take your point, Emily.

I suppose what upset me is that the blogger seemed to be trying to be funny at first and then it got really depressing. I don't mind laughing at pathetic punters (because they are freely choosing to spend their money), but WGs who are desperate/addicted/abused are not in any way funny.

If the extracts had just been ones that highlighted useless clients and silly/dim escorts, I'd have quite enjoyed it. If it had just been about tragic escorting situations, I would have found it depressing, but important to highlight this area and men's complicity in it to a wider audience. It was the combination of the two that annoyed me, like an article on funny things children say that also had some quotes from victims of abusive families.

I'll shut up now - I think this has been more about me processing my feelings than actually communicating anything, so apologies to anyone I've bored!

What kind of person would have sex with an injured woman? Then write a review mocking her? It's comparable to laughing at someone who's on a wheelchair. Not funny at all. Knowing all the woman haters writing on those boards it doesn't surprise me the least. That's why I don't believe in reviews. Most of them are written by trolls,agency owners, pimps, friends, angry competition and bitter clients. I was trashed in a board by some guy who was incredibly rude and I ended kicking out of my apartment. He dedicated the next 6 months to trash me in every board under different aliases. The only semi belivable review board I've ever read is the Erotic Review. The rest I don't pay attention as i find them  pure science fiction.

You're not boring at all and I hope my post didn't sound dismissive about your topic! I mean, I do feel a bit dismissive towards the whole idea of FRs and punter forums, of course (yes, there are a few situations where they can save both prossies and punters from being scammed and whatnot but mostly they just end up being icky places where trolls cavort before an audience so horrified it cannot look away) - but I think it's perfectly valid and quite important sometimes to discuss the various horrors of the internet.

I really do agree with you, by the way - the site you linked to is in extraordinarily bad taste. I too don't mind some humour about odd topics as long as it's either harmless, or helpful by being insightful and clever. That site was certainly neither but considering the rest of the rubbish (I had a quick glance at the "Similar Articles..." thingy area but didn't bother clicking on anything) on it, I'm not surprised the owners are desperate enough for traffic that they'll start quoting the worst of poor old Pnet.

I think the Daily Fail sort of did the same thing once, too? Which just goes to show. ::)

I agreed. Especially the posts ripping on providers who are paid under 50 pounds. Can you really expect all of the bells and whistles for that amount?

One thing that does make me happy is that none of the review boards completely tear apart physical attributes (unless they were grossly mis-represented...I can always be super-friendly and enthusiastic...but I can't vanish a few stretch marks...)

I'm iffy about the constant "she didn't enjoy her job" comments on TER and Punternet...

what are people supposed to do if someone is clearly not being coerced/exploited but seems to hate the job [I'm not talking about house-full-of-kids or tract marks...]?

I mean, if it's a choice, then it's a choice... so clearly as much as is hated, the money is worthwhile. Is it better for clients to just walk away then and not pay? Or just hand over the cash as a charity case? Or supply the worker with a list of referrals to welfare agencies and a shoulder to cry on?  Isn't that a bit condescending?

Cleanliness, atmosphere, care/enthusiasm/consideration are sorta a part of the job.

I mean, I'm not really sure what I'd do if I went in for a swedish massage,  the bathroom was a mess, there were toys strewn throughout the appointment room,and screaming cries of children rather than mood music in the background...If I did the yelp-comments-thing, I'm pretty sure I'd write a bad review.

 And I honestly did trash my high school guidance counselor (who, I'm guessing was being paid $15 US an hour) for indifference, lack of enthusiasm for job and general unprofessionalness in a feedback form...I guess the same deal with professors and grad student TAs at university. This is something my relatives (quite religious...) always do when they talk about different priests...

I don't really get it. (Maybe I'm just a bitch?)

I'm sorry. I'm an idiot. I clearly breezed through the "bad accommodations" and did not read the "Lovely Ladies" section.

I'll write a comment.

This isn't Punternet.......but I've had a couple of guys say to me 'oh I saw so and so........she burst into tears when I asked her if she was' OR 'I suspected these girls weren't allowed out of the house and slept 4 to a room'  (first girl Spanish, second Thai)

And my thoughts were and you went ahead anyway.  Maybe this is me being naive but a guy just going ahead when a women is obvioiusly distressed and or possibly there under some kind of duress I just think what kind of guy does this?

I have to say I found these two among the least pleasant of my clients.   The second one of these also said .....'most escorts are on drugs arent they' which kinda stunned me.  I just said.....well I'm not and I know plenty who arent - nice individual!

If you mean you're going to leave a comment on shoutingatco.ws, then don't spend too much time on it. I wrote a polite explanation of why I thought their 'worst of punternet' page wasn't as funny as they thought it was and they didn't publish it. A bit cowardly, IMO.

Agreed. Guys who can go through with the booking, get an erection and 'finish' where there are suspected coercing/trafficking or the lady is obviously in need of medical help (like the lady with bandages above) are vile. This may sound harsh, but those types are not much better than rapists IMO. Ok fair enough, it's not totally the same because there was consent involved, but obviously in some cases there is desperation or a lady who is being forced or not having a choice in her work. Seriously, how could someone be so warped to still manage to get sexually aroused in this type of situation? I always shudder when I hear things like that on message boards (and I have heard a few from clients myself).   Deeply unpleasant indeed.

Hello,

I was surprised to read this, as we don't censor comments.  It turns out that the e-mail address you specified ("asdkl3452345@sdfgsdf3453454.com" - assuming the comment opens "I came here from b3ta and I don?t really understand...") tripped our spam filters, and was automatically rejected without us seeing it.

As you were.
