I think the weather is more concerning than this virus at the minute!

On a normal day rain guarantees a quiet spell, but with half the country under water it's even quieter!

Bad weather and half term holidays I think are the main reasons it's so quiet.

I have not been able to work for much of the last 6 months, and coming back I have found I have to have my number up on AW a lot more and even then it was quiet.  I am a bit phone phobic so not great for me.

It was so dead I was forced to go back on VivaStreet and my it was far worse than I remembered. I’m not sure I got ANY bookings from there despite huge numbers or TW texts and some calls - though I didn’t quiz them where they found me so maybe I did.

It's really wierd because and very much like last year I was quiet before half-term, busy during  :o I've only really had the February half-term effect a couple of times in 10+ years.

But I see a variety of clients and punters, some not affected by half-term.

Yes! And when they do call they’re Timewaster.

I’ve had enough of this game now, I’m now virtually destitute because hardly any bookings
this year so far.

It’s diabolical and I’m at a loss as what to do.

I have zero money for advertising, and if I did they still waste my time.

Not only Tinder but the whole Seeking Arrangement/Sugar Baby aspect that now exists in the industry, as well as camming, has irrevocably changed it.

Also I think so many people have chosen sex work after seeing it portrayed as ultra glam in diary of a call girl, and the influx of women from Eastern Europe has also had an impact.

It’s a vastly different territory to 10-15 years ago.

I’m wondering what this means and how best to adapt to it.
It seems camming feeds into escorting on AW almost like advertising, so that’s worth doing.
As for being a sugar baby that’s too much time and commitment for relatively little financial gain (so I hear)!

I've noticed an increase in SMS text and email contact, just as likely to be very lengthy or not as phone calls just as likely to be wasting time.

It’s true
I am on and off loads off sites , new photos cheap rates , does not make a difference I have never known so many twats as the last 14 months , it’s that crap I have to work the beat at times , but I always get punters out there not that it’s best place to be , just hate waiting all day and it’s always messers on the phone .

Being in 1 area would always go dead after a little while but being the "new lady" in new areas used to more or less guarantee good business but i do not find that is the case for the last 6 months at all. This industry has always had quiet periods and busy periods but travelling to new areas used to spark major interest and i am not seeing that anywhere as much as it used to be 6 to 10 months back.

I do not think as many clients are using the service anymore or there is too many touring escorts and they are used to lots of new ladies popping up so not a huge deal anymore and toi many indies now working then ever before.

There is nothing like good or bad areas especially if ure working in London.
Guys who want to see will come and see you wherever you are based.

Since last October it's been proper crap. Tons of wasters and freshies.
I changed my profile, name, services and pics January still dead.
This week hey presto productive international and UK calls and work's picked up a bit! :o

It's nowhere adequate, better than a poke with a shitty stick.

Where've they all been hiding?

Still ticking over nicely and targets met but my targets are much lower now than they used to be. This feels so good.

Knowing that I would exceed my target for the week, yesterday late afternoon I accepted a booking from someone I have met 3 or 4 times a year and that was the only reason I said yes as I do not look forward to seeing him for reasons too boring to relate today.  However he turned up for his hour booking and within a few minutes I noticed his cock was unclean, very unclean. This hardly ever happens with me.

I reached for the wipes and told him that before we started I had to clean him and he did not seem bothered whatsoever, no shame or uncomfortable noises from him.  I asked had he come from home or work, home he said. This infuriated me but I carried on with the (sort of) satisfying knowledge that he would never meet me again. Yet another repeat or regular client of mine now blocked! Total lack of respect from him.

Sorry for the moan but it happens so infrequently it bothers me such a lot when it does.

Still nothing!!!!!  dead, dead, dead as a dodo.  Although someone just booked without asking (don't you just hate that) but it was someone I had met before and had no reason to meet again (disgusting hygiene).

One person who booked for March, flying in from abroad, has cancelled also what the hell is going on?  ::) ??? :(

I have just called my old boss at the parlour and I’ve got a shift tomorrow, thankgod and I know for a fact that I’ll be busy as my old regulars will all want to see me because it always works that way I’m the parlour I speak of. I may only stick it out a wee while til AW picks up but I don’t want to work from my own house anymore either.
