A question escorts in Manchester are frequently asked is if they enjoy poppers. It is something which brings out a variety of responses, in part since it is very much of a Marmite topic - some people like them, some hate them, and others have no idea what to say because there is so much confusion relating to them, brought about in part by social stigma and media hysteria over them.


First, what are poppers? If you're new to this, then we can point out that despite sounding similar to a popular advertising jingle, poppers are not related to Pringles. So, while a can of Pringles can be addictive to the point that once you pop you can't stop, they definitely have no place in the bedroom (unless you're Danielle Lloyd). Rather, poppers is a fairly generic name given for a wide range of chemical products which tend to have a similar chemical composition and provide approximately the same sort of buzz to users. Some types, such as those based on isoamyl nitrites, have strict regulations on their use in the UK, meaning they're essentially banned. Others, however, are based on a twist to the original composition, such as alkyl nitrate, are governed by a different set of guidance relating to their use, distribution and marketing, meaning they are a "legal high" of sorts (despite fairly recent government attempts to ban them outright).

Given they sound similar, it can be confusing discussing them, but it is the latter set of poppers that this post is about. With brand names such as Liquid Gold or Rush XXX, they tend to come in little brown bottles with lurid foils designed to lure in users, rather like vaping liquids and energy drinks are sold to all and sundry now. Unlike adult videos, which are sold in specifically regulated establishments, not only are popper sold online, but they can be bought anywhere on the highstreet, even at the local off-license. However, not only are buyers meant to be 18+, but poppers are not actually sold for adult consumption, but are instead sold for uses as diverse as cleaning leather, nail care, or as a room odoriser (to "odorise" a room, obviously).

Now, unless you are a Tom of Finland afficionado, you're not likely to use a bottle of poppers to polish your finest bondage gear when better products exist. Instead, as happens especially, but not exclusively, in the gay community, you'll be using it as an aid for chemsex. It isn't my place to discuss exactly how this is done, as lack of experience, interest, and a wish to support it means I am not comfortable doing, so I'm going to make my excuses and leave. Suffice to say though, Wikipedia and Google are your friend when it comes to using such items in the best way possible to reach that sensual high.

However, what I will say is this: if you ever do decide to get poppers, unless you're using them while home alone, please pay some consideration to the safety of those around you. Whether you are with pals from the Village or seeing a Manchester escort, poppers are not harmless, so always ask beforehand if you can open a bottle while they are around. Passive smoking harms others, as does passive popping; so what may be a cool headrush to you can end up as a mega headache to someone else, not to mention causing heart issues that can even be fatal. Always close your poppers bottle when finished, and always ensure that your local area is well ventilated, ensuring that the fumes are given a chance to disappear ASAP.


Now that you have read this, how about letting this gentlemen offer his opinion on poppers ...

Today is Coronation Day, the official day in which the eldest son of the late Queen gets to change jobs, wear a new hat, and become King. We wish King Charles well, although it is a sad reflection of the times that someone who otherwise qualifies for an old-age pension needs to go out and work. If only the Royals had a couple of bob spare so that he wouldn't be forced to graft away in his golden years, when he'd probably be sipping a glass of vino in Butlins, Benidorm or the Bahamas.


Of course, it isn't just Charles who becomes King, as Camilla will now become Queen. Obviously, conspiracy fanatics are not going to be pleased by this particular state of events - while some, inspired by David Icke, believe the Royals are leading players in the lizard alien plan to rule the world; there are others who think it was Diana who truly deserved to be the new queen, had she not been brutally knocked off on the instructions of some mysterious puppetmaser in Buckingham Palace.


Personally, as a republican, I don't give a hoot who should be queen. What I do find fascinating though is that this is probably the first instance in which a royal mistress became First Lady of the land. This is major change from events of the 1990s, when Camilla probably ranked alongside Cruella de Vil and O.J. Simpson in the popularity stakes. Along with being reviled for breaking up a fairytale romance, Camilla was a central character in Camillagate, when the media published phonechats where Charles was heard to confess his desire to be her personal tampax. Be that as it may, things have moved on in the intervening years, and we now have King Charles and Queen Camilla.


With that in mind, it did lead me to wonder about something: if you ever follow the history of English royals through the ages, while there are instances of them getting their leg over, such behaviour is usually expressed in euphemisms. So, while serial divorcee Henry VIII had numerous wives, other kings, such as Charles II, would either have a royal mistress, or be seen entertaining in the company of a retired actress (or, at a push, seeing "courtesans", who were the FMTY escorts of the powdered wig and horsebuggy era). Generally though, it is rare to read about an English king, or king to be, visiting a brothel or seeking the services of a common prostitute, as if this was a bawdy activity only fit for the lower classes. While some of this may have been down to a belief that you get what you pay for in terms of female company, in other cases, it was down to a need to maintain discretion in how they conducted ones affairs in private, lest it impacted on their public persona.


There appears to be only one exception to the rule, and what an exception he was. This notable royal punter of note was Edward VII, son of Queen Victoria and her consort Prince Albert (him of cockring fame), Edward was, like the current king, Prince of Wales for a hell of a lot of time; 59 years until he took the place of Victoria. However, unlike Charles III, Bertie didn't spend his spare time on organic biscuits, playing polo or talking to plants - rather his hobbies were travelling, mens fashion, and banging away at babes in a way which would make even the most seasoned members of UKPunting look like amateurs (except maybe Hendrix).


While Victorian Britain was characterised as being a land of rather prudish morals, over in France, life was different. The French were living in a demimonde of artistic expression and sensual exuberance, with Paris being the centre of it all. It was here that Edward, who was as popular as he was portly, became the libertine king, long before he became king of an empire. Unlike modern day clients, who pull their noses up at any escort who doesn't match their perceptions of perfection, Edward was a man of the people, in that he didn't give a hoot about such things. Thus, he was happy to consort with any woman of negotiable virtue regardless of her price, looks or social status, like a true king would.


That said, he did like his brothels, with one in particular being his favourite, namely Le Chabanais. While every brothel and massage parlour in Manchester likes to state on its website that it is luxurious, this place actually was the real deal, with gilded staircases, marble floors, fountains and imported silk bedding to match the beauties working there who were fit for a harem. In short, it had the sort of posh amenities you would only ever be likely to find in the old Gallery massage parlour (by comparison, Sandys had the decor of a Toby Carvery compared to that palace in Cadishead). Such was Edward's importance, wealth and regularity at this venue that short of getting a Royal Warrant, he did the next best thing here. Not only did they allow him to have his own personal room, they allowed him to decorate it with his coat of arms, and equipment of his own taste, going so far as to include a custom shagging chair which you can read about here.

Of course, all good things come to an end, so when Bertie eventually was crowned king, it appears his punting habit came to an end too. However, he still confided in certain ladies, with one such mistress being Alice Keppel, a lady whose sense of discretion, finesse and overall culture meant she remained by his side until his death. In a quirk of fate which brings us back to the present day, this royal mistress was to become the great-grandmother of one Camilla Rosemary Shand, who ended up not only in following in her footsteps, but doing one better.  Weird how the world turns out, so Huzzah for King Charles and Queen Camilla!


Rejoice, for the news section to the Indigo Nile website returns!

For those new visitors who are probably unfamiliar with the News page, it is simply a section of the site which existed years ago, prior to being removed due to technical issues and time constraints. Inside, it contained a listing of posts for all the updates to our site, enabling you to find out about new ladies, site improvements and general agency news, together with commentary on topics of relevance and interest to the greater Manchester escort world.

Part in-house newspaper, part adult blog, it is like the proverbial A to Z offered by your average massage parlour therapist, promising a lot in the advertising blurb, but delivering very little of genuine value. But hey, you can't complain, as everything which is written here is free, so this is what counts as value-for-money (VFM). If you want quality, you'd have to pay for it by signing up to a subscription to Kindle Unlimited or the London Review of Books.

For this week, the key bit of news is that we hope to have a new lady called Kennedy joining us in the coming weeks. She is a lively blonde escort with a slim figure, who is quite experienced and very well known in the adult industry under a different guise. Pics and basic information are, as always, listed on her profile page.
