Howdy, 8 readers. Thanks for your patience. I spent two weeks in rehab, where I was analyzed by various shrinks who specialize in addiction medicine, and another week isolated with the Collector out in the boondocks in Colorado. If he reads this, I am going to be fucked, but I don’t think that he is because he would definitely tell me.
Before I get down to the personal stuff, I’d like to draw your attention to this: Backpage has delisted all of its adult services ads due to government pressure. It just happened last night, while I was asleep! Do you realize what a disaster this is for sex workers? They even stopped ads for legal services, like BDSM/fetish and exotic dancing! Apparently, we’re promoting sex slavery by advertising sales of smelly gym socks and spanking Stanford MBAs. What a crock!
I get 50% of my new clientele from Backpage, and I’m going back to work this week and I’m freaking out! I can only hope that most of my clients saved my email, phone number, and website address–but I know that since approximately 80% of them are MARRIED and their wives have no idea about their kinky pervy fetishes, they delete everything to keep themselves safe!
In my experience, almost nobody wants to session with exploited “trafficked” teenagers, either because they’re afraid of the legal ramifications or because they find the notion morally abhorrent. I’ve met some truly awful “clients” in this Biz, but the majority don’t want to hurt anyone. The idea that Backpage is a hotbed of predators seeking to exploit unwilling, pimped-out teens (the justification used for this political witch-hunt) is preposterous.
What a shitshow.
