Blonde Escorts Guide to Punter Talk

This is a guide to the terminology of heterosexual prostitution in the UK, with emphasis on terms and abbreviations used on the net and particularly on PunterNet. Various other terms have been thrown in wherever I thought it appropriate. This guide does not list acronyms that are in general use on all types of newsgroups, mailing lists and message-boards - for a comprehensive list of these acronyms take a look at the Internet Acronyms Dictionary. There is very little coverage of BDSM terms here - see The Deviant's Dictionary for explanations of these.

All the terms in this glossary are tagged, so it's possible to link directly to the definition of any term from elsewhere on the web.

The selection of terms defined here will no doubt seem quirky and erratic to some people. But that's OK, because it is quirky and erratic. Description of any act here does not signify the author's approval of it, particularly if it is illegal - see Redefining Prostitution as Sex Work for an overview of the laws (in England and Wales) pertaining to sex work.
