Thread: Punters and Gamblers is there a connection?

  1. #1

    Default Punters and Gamblers is there a connection?

    DO you think that people that gamble on horses/poker etc and people that use the services of an escort have a connection? Do you think it might have something to do with the thrill or adrenaline rush achieved from both?

    As I don't gamble there is no connection between the two in my case.......but a good way of saving yourself some money, both as regards women and gambling, is to ride horses and back women.

    Well I have given up going to the Casino's months ago, I decided it was an un-healthy addiction, now visiting Ladies on the other hand is good for the soul I don't think they are really connected, but when you have / win cash that doesn't need to be accounted for it does encourage people to spend it in ways they don't have to worry about..

    Don't do the nags but poker I love.
    Been to Vegas a handfull of times and won a bit of cash. Not a whole lot mind, I'm a little too sensible to gamble that much.
    Walked away one trip just under 10k better off.

    Have to admit that I have been know to gamble on pretty much everything.
    Horses, soccer pools, football, 2 flies climbing up a wall, everything really.
    I love poker as well.
    Gambling does have a rush but I would agree that its a different rush to punting.

    The main connection I see between gambling and punting is the addiction factor.
    Both highly addicitive rushes.

    I like poker and the odd flutter nothing too serious though. Definitely spend more on punting I have to admit. Its the feel good factor I suppose, both are quick fixes with a bit of risk involved. As long as I don't lose my shirt on either i'm happy.
