Most annoying thing about Adultwork

For me, it's the sheer number of girls who don't display a phone number.

I don't understand that as they're missing out on tons of business.

There are plenty of guys who use Adultwork but don't sign up as members and who phone the girls who do have their numbers shown.

As I understand it, it only costs £1.00 to display your phone number for a day.

Surely, that should be regarded as an investment?

I just can't understand the sheer lack of business nous by some girls.

What do you find most annoying?

I don't put my number because I keep my meets to a minimum keeps it fun and fresh the thought of my phone going to see a few guys a day would give me a headache I prefer advanced bookings so when they have booked and we have had an initial chat then I give my number out ,it works for me . I can see your point in the ones that do the same day meets must be frustrating for the guys that are looking.

Where to start. Its run by low lifes with no interest in helping punters or WGs just making a buck which includes stealing accrued credits when they wish to.

Its feedback system is rotten to its core with the credibility to me of near zero, many punters have posted they wouldn't give a bad WG negative FB in case she gives the same back thus possibly putting another WG off them in the future, what use is that to punters, great for bad WGs and pimps though, no doubt they are pissing themselves laughing.

I only punt with WGs with displayed numbers, I punt to suit me NOT a WG but how they operate is of course entirely up to them. I still use A/W as its the best location site for WGs for me.

This year in particular in my area of London its got a lot worse, its now like wading knee deep in shit to find a gem, fortunately there still are gems on their, its all about finding them which is where UKP and knowing other punters helps greatly.

Absolutely Smiths, if an advertiser doesn't want to include a phone number that is their choice. In the past I've removed my number during busy times and time off, to lower the number of daft calls and texts which worked brilliantly. I now mostly only have it on so that my website link can be displayed.

At the moment I don't have a great deal of moans because I've spent a long time learning how to use it.

My main complaint are the number of men who insist that my AW profile says that I'm in Carlisle, plus those who insist that their positive feedback proves they are trustable. Feedback on AW means very little to me all it proves is that the member turned up to that booking, and in some cases not even that.

These are however gripes with AW users and not AW themselves.

By the way AW have now added 20% VAT onto all their charges, making phone display £1.20 per day. Everything else has increased by the same proportion.

Due to some sort of electronic business rule, anyone one trading as a business is exempted from VAT on AW charges. To prove this AW ask for a passport and tax return scan. I have provided these and am now charged the old, without VAT fees for facilities provided via AW. This is of most significance to Web Cammers who are charged when withdrawing credits, and who rely on this for their income.

I know of other ladies who've provided similar documents, so now AW have a lot of sensitive information.

That's OK you and the others can claim the VAT back

I'm not sure what bothers me about AW but it really gets under my skin sometimes. It's all the inconsistancies. You really do have to understand the profile before you dare make a call, text or message. If adultwork were more formalised so that certain fields were filled in before the profile were allowed to go live that would help. Eliminate the garbage.

It's shit. Totally agree with Smiths and others - it is run for profit only there is no investment in making it a more useful/usable site either for punters or escorts.
Last year I was able to find decent profiles, cross-reference them on UKP and have some great punts. This year it is rife with fraudulent profiles that are becoming increasingly difficult to spot. It now takes far too long to find anything interesting so I have all but given up on it. That said I had loads of escorts in my hot lists over there so I've now just saved their numbers / e-mails and don't go on AW at all unless there's an escort that didn't publish contact details. Once I've booked them once I then have their number and contact them directly. I have enough decent regs and enough ladies in my HL's to keep me busy for the next six months so will be using AW even less.

Some of my punting is in London, a lot of profiles are skimpy on location, while Earls Court and Canary Wharf aren't that far apart it makes all the difference if hoping to punt on a work day (seen both listed as nearest station on the same profile)

100% agree +1

I was "off piste", down in Portsmouth on business and I booked a WG. I showed up and the maid met me (good looking). Took me to the woman I had booked. Bait and Switch. I showed her the photo of what I was expecting on my punting phone and said "I'm off". The WG says I need to pay a cancellation fee etc etc and starts shouting the odds. I just firmly say no and walk.
2 days later, I message one of the WG's I see periodically for an appointment. She messages me to tell me that I've got hidden feedback from the B&S scammer and that she is claiming I was violent. I contact AW and it took 2 months to sort it out. In the end they just removed it.

I'm sure the more experienced AW users could have told me what to do. One week after this I joined UKP and have many people to help me in any situation now.

But A/W clearly don't give a shit about that, as long as the gravy train continues to roll that's their only interest.

For me it's the auto log out. Why can't we have a choice to stay logged in. It's a pain in the arse especially when the site is on a go slow uploading photos as it logs out half way through the upload
I know we can have the emails screen open but shouldn't have to. It's not hard to add a button to choose to stay logged in
I still have to log in if I want to read the emails. I agree this is one of the most annoying AW 'features'.

Don't like the fact there known for closing down girls profiles just to steal the credits.

Don't like the fact they hide behind being based abroad and its hard making contact with them if there is a problem.

Don't like the fact they allow girls to verify there profile but then the profile picture can be some old ugly Romanian hag and the pictures on the profile look like some goddess who says she is Spanish. Personally they would be better taking away the verifying thing as means fuck all, plus do girls really want to give adultwork there I.D I would not trust them.

Auto logout is annoying. I once spent quite a while writing a glowing field report for an excellent punt. When I clicked 'post', AW had logged me out. I couldn't be bothered to write it all again so the wg never did get a field report. I don't think I have written one since.

Indeed, low lifes as I say though I don't care where they are hosted from. I most certainly wouldn't give them my real ID to look at, to me that's like trusting Nick Leeson to run the Bank Of England though I don't blame WGs for doing so.

Removing profiles off hotlist takes fucking agessss!!!!!! I have to press remove about 50 times before it disappears. Fake profiles also piss me off. How choosing to exclude romanians means i miss some british girls out for some reason?
