Getting paid for sex in second life ?

Recommended Posts

Fascinating, how you switched from "Buh, nobody needs or wants escorts, they are dumb and I know it all" to "Being an escort and getting paid for sex works/is great!"

I didnt say its great (strangely arousing and exciting were the terms I used) nor did I ever say they are dumb. 

Let me put it this way: The subject always intrigued me, but I never really understood it. I still dont know why and if there is a market for escorts in SL, why people use escorts when there is free sex available in abundance in Second life and why those girls do sex work for less than the hourly rate at McDonalds.

One thing I definetly learned already: Location is important. Its the place which gets promoted not the escort girls as such. My previous under cover experiment was without a specific location to promote, maybe thats the reason I got the impression (or confirmation of a preconcieved idea/opinion) that escorting in SL is more smoke than fire.

I will get to the ground of this, by first hand experience and of course write about it, which is actually the point of the exercise.

Your very first articles about escorts in SL had an overall negative tone, while this one here is covered in an overall positive one. Without much research, you claimed that you had valid proof of something, that I had the impression, you wanted to be the truth, because it matched your opinion.

And that last thing still shines through on this post here, why do you question that some work for less than minimum wage, when SL is full of this? All the DJs, hosts, dancers, models and even the majority of shop owners don't make enough to reach the wage of a RL job.

Yes, it is a lot about the place. The place draws the clients in, but everything that happens after that depends on the escort.

I would say people work in SL because they have some kind of fun doing it and/or because they don't want to put or can't transfer real money into SL, but still want to be able to afford things that aren't freebies.

And from my own experiance, I can say it feels quite good to know someone is willing to pay something for your work and time. It also adds a new feeling of value to the things you buy, because you can't just say "oh I'll transfer some more money" when you run dry during shopping.....its a bit realism.

I have to agree. Sometimes it's more about knowing that you mean something, that you can create a thing that has value.

I worked as an escort and I don't have a problem saying it. I wouldn't do it in RL, but I enjoyed every bit of being someone else. Sometimes it's good to try something different. I try not to take SL too serious. I liked knowing that men feel good in my company. I liked the fact that they were buying me gifts and that they were curious about who I am. I even met some people I started to consider friends.

If I got paid the dollar for dollar amount in RL that I did as an escort in SL, you bet your bippy I would do it. We use to make 3-5K a night, more if she wanted two or more guys.

Actually, this was pre-Drake.. Drake is actually my alt. I no longer use my main and have made Drake my main av. So we are talking 8 years ago-ish.

I would have sent out invites..

Escorts are basicly glorafied prostatutes. In most states including California where LLs is out of, prostatution is illegal. I have heard "escorts" get paid quite well in sl. But that dosent make it right or legal as far as states laws are concerned. just my opinion.

Jeeez, learn to use the spellchecker.. please..

Firstly, neither escorts nor prostitutes are illegal in SL. Virtual hooking is completely legal in the US. How many sites have women willing to strip and do sexual acts for money on hem? Tons. Who are you to say what is "right" in SL. Your world, your imagination. Free will, man. Stop harshing my mellow. If i want to get busy with a women for money, that is between two consenting adults. If she is willing to pay me to spend a few hous with her.. so be it. Judge not lest ye be judged.

In Wisconsin (where I live), setting people on fire is illegal. Yet I've done it countless (okay 76) times!

Why are they glorified in your opinion? Just because escort is used as the common term? (This is no glorification in any way). Also LL probably knows the laws better than you and as others said (I'm not from Cali or the US as a whole, so I trust their words at this point) virtual sex business is not illigal.

On a moral aspect: Why do you think its not right? Is virtual sex or sexual roleplay a sacred act? Is a free woman who deciedes what she wants to do with her life bad? Because other than real life prostitution, the virtual escort business does not come with its downsides. You don't have criminal pimps or brothels, who control and oppress the women, there are no diseases and no danger of being harmed by violent clients.

Escorts in SL may be virtual prostitutes but since there is no RL touching involved it is treated like phone sex or one of those 'adult' chat lines which are legal.  I am sure if it were illegal the cops would be crawling all over it after 11 years.

Whether it is 'right' or not is just a matter of personal opinion.

Hah! Maddy, fancy seeing you down here in the depths of the forum :D

Being set on fire by you has been one of the highlights of my SL

(and she didn't even charge me for it!)

And this illustrates my problem, Tem.

Here I am, trying to instill terror across the breadth of SL, and look what happens. My (attempted) murderous acts become my victim's highlights. I knew nefariosity would be hard work, but hoped it would be rewarding.

Thank you for the idea to charge my victims for inadvertently entertaining them. Maybe the salve of cold hard cash will sooth the sting of failure?

Hi

Did you ever fantasize about being a prostitute for a day? Or maybe even tried it already? How did you feel about it?

here is my first experience with that.

 

 

 

 

No, I never did have this fantasy, but one day I did leave my avatar dancing on a pole while I went for a long toilet break in real life, and when I returned I found someone had put 500L$ into my pole pot, after whittering on offloading his "my wife doesn't understand me" woes in IM with me not even having to respond. Win, win. :)
