You mean being a prostitute? Great idea. hmm

PaulinePetrovaPosey Wed 10-Jun-20 12:22:06

Vile. Have some self respect.

SpideyMom Wed 10-Jun-20 17:30:45

Is this a joke? No amount of money would make me compromise my self respect

Socially distanced escorting. That’d be a new one!

Dunking Wed 10-Jun-20 18:06:59

Oh ffs get over yourselves !

OP I've never done this nor would I want and can only imagine how tough this must be to even consider this. Once you have taken the first step there is no going back. I guess, do you want to do it ? Are there any other options to consider to get you out of this finisncial mess ?

If you're serious then surely your mate is the best person to ask, as she's doing the job?

Make sure you join a union

If you want to do it go ahead but don’t give it a fancy name, it’s prostitution

You're the person on the bisexual husband thread defending his despicable behaviour.

Not surprised you would contemplate doing this

NoHardSell Thu 11-Jun-20 06:46:50

It's not the best time really, is it?

Or are you thinking of cam work?

GinasWig Thu 11-Jun-20 08:08:19

I can't imagine why in the UK you would seriously need to do this for financial reasons.

MinteeFresh Thu 11-Jun-20 08:11:13

Why would you want to do something that causes so much pain and suffering to so many women on here? You've on the Relationships board, you've seen it.

@lemmi

Wow you sound so perfect and judgmental.
Rent he bisexual husband don't get upset that put another view

RE ESCORTING

men will do this. So don't blame me and I was asking as a friends said I should do it.

I don't say i was but having such a down beat view of sex workers as it appears you do is rather holier than thou!

I hope you can live up to your high standards

Did you read the thread from an actual sex worker?

Most people have a negative view of them, including a lot of concern for them as it is not something healthy, happy people choose to do, and including every ex sex worker that has ever come on here to share their story. Make sure you go in with your eyes wide open if you're going to do it.

There is a forum called SAAFE for sex workers. It's a mine of information and advice - give it a good read.

If you can't imagine why someone would need to turn to sex work in the UK, whether for financial or other reasons, then you don't spend enough time with your eyes open. It is not an option that I would hope anyone should have to be faced with, but there is more than enough abject poverty and desperation to drive both men and women to sex work.

Easy not to sell my body to scumbags.

GinasWig Sat 13-Jun-20 12:23:33

Whatever, moon. I worked with homeless and vilnerable people. I still stand by what i said

GinasWig Sat 13-Jun-20 12:29:46

whether for financial or other reasons

I literally just said for financial reasons, didnt talk about other reasons. And i talkes about financial reasons because that was in the op. Please dont put words in my mouth, ta. 🙄

Seriously - you work with vulnerable people and you still can't see why people would be desperate enough to turn to sex work? That is astonishing. And I didn't put words in your mouth - I acknowledged that people may also have reasons other than the purely financial.

Many sex workers are homeless, drug or alcohol dependant, unable to access benefits, etc. Since the introduction of Universal Credit, the UK benefits policy has forced some people out of their homes or to make choices between doing what might have previously been unthinkable and putting food on the table for their children, or keeping a roof over their heads. Trafficking and human slavery still exist on UK streets, and for some people there is a fine line between choice and force.

As I said previously, it oughn't to be a choice that any person has to make, but unfortunately it is. The homeless, especially young homeless people, and vulnerable are most at risk of being groomed into and/or choosing sex work because they may have few other options that they can see. Especially since years of austerity have slashed budgets to support public and third sector services to those in sex work or at risk of entering sex work.

If you work in the sector at all, I am shocked that you don't know this.

Here's some links if you'd like to find out more:

www.turn2us.org.uk/About-Us/News/Universal-Credit-and-%E2%80%98survival-sex

I don't judge someone who feels so desperate that they turn to sex work to survive. I judge a society that creates the conditions that force people into the choice. Assuming the OP is for real, I don't know why they feel that this is their only way out. I hope that they find other avenues, and that they try those first. But if this genuinely is their only way to survive, then I condemn a society that lets people fall so far that these are the only choices left to them.

I had a leaflet through my door a few days ago. It was a male escort advertising his services locally!
I live in what is usually considered a 'very well to do' area so this was unexpected.

@MinteeFresh it’s the husbands/partners infidelity that causes the grief, not the job
