I think it's important that the buyers' choices in prostitution are highlighted and shared. This project was linked to on FB. Thoughts? I think it's a great idea.

Yuk. Very sad. A good project though.

The grim reality of being a prostitute. But actually says more about the punters i.e. that they are devoid of any humanity.

kotinka Tue 07-May-13 12:20:44

they talked as though they were complaining about a faulty toaster.

grimbletart Tue 07-May-13 12:25:48

Well, yes - because they are using women as objects - they might as well be toasters for all they care.

TheConstantLurker Tue 07-May-13 12:34:48

They really don't have any grasp of what they are doing do they. Shocking.

kotinka Tue 07-May-13 12:36:51

the one choking the girl made me sick. isn't it psychopathy when you don't care or can't see you're hurting someone?

StuffezLaYoni Tue 07-May-13 18:32:36

Oh god.
You just know the choking one was re-living it as he was typing that.
And poor, tired woman - how dare she be tired? Put him right off!
angry

Really sad - this is the reality of prostitution. None of that happy hooker nonsense hmm

rosabud Tue 07-May-13 19:09:29

That makes really sad reading. But this is a very short thread so far.....it seems a little brief.....what's missing, I wonder? Oh yes! Where are all the posters who regularly join in on the prostitution/porn/lapdancing threads to post about "empowerment of women's choices" and "earning lots of money" and "transaction between consenting adults with respect on both sides"??

Conspicuously silent when confronted with the reality.

They're all on the one about the porn star Elle interview.

Those 'reviews' are like a bath of cold shit.

AnyFucker Tue 07-May-13 19:19:50

Yes, all the defenders of women's "right" to have "all her holes ripped open" are over on the "Elle mag" thread in AIBU

Utterly demoralising stuff

SuffolkNWhat Tue 07-May-13 19:24:40

Utter shocking. I have been too disgusted by the Elle thread to comment so far, I hope this project exposes further the way in which punters treat these poor women.

The comment made about the (probably trafficked) Eastern Europeans made my skin crawl.

Katiekitty Tue 07-May-13 19:24:40

Elle?

Hell.

ElectricSoftParade Tue 07-May-13 19:26:44

Those reviews are completely shocking. The way the women are described just makes my blood run cold.

It is an excellent idea.

BitBewildered Tue 07-May-13 19:30:47

sad Horrible. Fucking grim reading.

Sunnywithshowers Tue 07-May-13 19:32:34

Awful.

I've avoided the Elle thread.

Katiekitty Tue 07-May-13 19:42:26

The Elle thread is an eye opener.

That so many see nowt wrong with violent porn. Or at least can make excuses for it.

TheCrackFox Tue 07-May-13 19:44:54

I've advoided the Elle thread too. Fairly apparent that there are lots of Punternets (or sad, lonely, fuckers as they used to be called in the olden days) pretending to be women.

Looks like Puntersnet is littered with psychopaths in training judging by
ArmyOfPenguins link.

Amazes me how some people can't see the direct correlation between that and the attitude of the Invisible Man inadequates.

kotinka Tue 07-May-13 19:55:17

I don't know much about porn or feminism, just getting interested. Surely it's hard to prove a definite connection between attitudes to women, use of porn and willingness to use violence?

He doesn't link to the actual reports but that isn't needed. He wouldn't possibly lie to us all
