    Angry Punter? I hate that word!

    Is it just the Nature Boy or does anyone else hate this word?

    For me a Punter is a person that puts a bet on a horse and has a gambling problem. A guy/girl that sees an escort is a customer/client not a f**king punter!

    Cant we please get this word out off the site and out of our vocabulary, I personally think its disrespectful. An escort is not a f**king horse/greyhound.

    Yes, sometimes it sounds kind of degradeting, words can send differnt messages, it's like saying "whore", or "slapper", or "escort", they all kind of mean same thing which is a woman in the trade of providing happiness through sexual experience, but when we say "whore" or "slapper" we are degradeting that woman, however if we use the word "escort" we are talking business. So for us should be the same, I don't feel a punter as such, I am a customer, a client, in the same sense I am a client when I visit my lawyer, or my bank manager, or a car delaer, or an a escort-therapist etc...

    Default The world has tilted!

    I never thought I would see the day, but I have to say I agree with Flypan, I personally prefer Gentleman, Client, or Guest. But Punter I find quite offensive. Just my two cents.

    I think it is only in recent years that the "punter" word has gone out of fashion somewhat. Remember also the biggest UK escort websites tend to use it, e.g. punternet, punterlink etc. We will bear in mind that some people don't like it now though.

    Question Lucky Punt!!!

    I would like to say that I am a client or customer etc when visiting an escort but the fact of the matter is we are all usually "punters" ................ a punter is an indidvidual who gambles ............. isn't that what WE are doing when visiting escorts in Ireland as regard the service we get / prices we pay etc????

    Default Punter = Customer

    Although the word can apply to someone who gambles it also more commonly refers to someone who uses a retail establishment..
    If you visit a pub. you are the punter
    same as a restaurant or shop

    "putting on special offers to get the punters in.."

    it's what people in any trade call the paying public

    I can't see what is offensive about it..
