    Default Why donít escorts post anymore?

    Iíve seen it asked frequently lately.
    Some tweets from a sex worker on twitter who I should add has never advertised here, not about this forum, one in another country. In case it has a bearing, sheís young, very sexy, very popular and successful, a mix of Russian and another nationality. Any thoughts on her opinions?


    The greatest threat to sex workers safety, anonymity, health and mental well being in my opinion are review boards.
    I think the review board culture is misogynistic, racist, classist and fundamentally opposes everything I believe in as a feminist.
    The way in which WOC, POC, trans and queer workers are spoken about on these review boards disturbs me to no end.
    But, in my opinion, the most disturbing part is I believe the men on these forums enjoy the pain or sadness they cause workers.
    The thing I hate the most is that men have taken away power from workers to choose whether to participate in these boards.
    They have made these boards gain enough traction to validate or invalidate a workers "worth" as defined by their subjective experience
    So where has thus misogynistic practice lead too? Workers being forced to tolerate this behaviour for fear of losing income.
    So, if workers oppose this dehumanisation & scrutiny, they can't do anything about it because of the power imbalance between client/worker
    You are aiding patriarchal oppression, marginalising already marginalised people - all literally because you've chosen to fuck as a hobby.
    whorephobia, whoreachial behaviour, drug shaming, mental health shaming.

    While I do agree with some of your sentiment of your post,its unfair to make a blanket statement about all punters that use boards.
    Some of us do value the job the ladies do.:doc
    Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
    People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do .: doc

    A lady recently told us it was because of all the trash talk here. I can't speak for all the others though.

    They are a selection of tweets, not a piece.
    I think her opinions covered a wider range than opting in or out of reviews, more the pervading culture around sex worker forums and it also applies to a different review board with a different set of rules

    I realise that, again I think it referred to the general environment surrounding review boards. Are they overall a welcoming or unwelcoming environment for sex workers. I thought with the question so frequently asked here it might be interesting.

    Repeating every left wing trope one can throw out there. Wouldn't put any stock in it. She forgot "ageist".

    While I wasn't going to refer to anyone as dickhead, it did make me smile that that was the first reply. No offence to anyone

    Seriously though, do you think any escort would ever want to engage in posting with you, or are you just here for the guys?

    Have I?... didnt realise a point was required to be proven...

    This girl is a feminist, she says so. Just pointing that out firstly.

    Reviews.... Misogynist thrills or valuable sales perks... every escort will decide what she wants. There is the opt out option. So what you think DeusEX?
