sex work in SL - some claim like they get rich?

Recommended Posts

So I was checking some of the strip clubs, most of the time they are pretty welcoming of anyone who sets foot but I ran into one and the intial greeting was kind of rude. Basically "pay 5K to look around or leave" cause it was for gentlemen only.

Well I got into it with their LO and she is there the whole time raving about how much money they made. I think I got banned from there cause I requested eject and ban. Soon after found a nice place with friendly staff and decent guests.

 

Anyways a lot of escorts act like they are getting so rich or brag about their profits and such, yet the reality is there are like 20 escorts/dancers on SL for each client.

Sometimes I snag a notecard from these b****es and they charge insane amounts for services, and on the notecards they sound kind of negative like what they will NOT do, the escorts turn-on's. and just a general sense like it is about them instead of the clients they try to serve.

Are guys someone turned on by being treated like this? If I was trying to hire an escort and the card was that negative I would tell them to cram it in their butt.

 

Plus I wonder if they are SO busy raking in all this L$, how come they always seem to have time to chat with me as if I was a friend instad of another face in the SL crowd?

 

On an extended note - what is up with people in GENERAL, sl or rl, who feel the need to brag about their money?

for many people money is a social status, a demonstration of power, so i guess they brag about their money to show how valuable they are, and if you are convinced that they are valuable, you may pay the price because you may think they are worth it

Umm...your point is?

If you do not like the contents of a notecard advertizing services, do not purchase the services.

The rest of what you say about making money in SL...well, yes, people make tiny amounts and not so tiny amounts.  So?

No one is making you listen to people 'bragging' about anything.  If it disturbs you, mute them.

Yeah, but I think those days are long past now.

My question to you is why should escorts be expected to give away their services cheaply or to do whatever a potential client wants?  Being an escort in SL is a skill that not everyone can do well.  It's more than just jumping on pose balls.  It requires buying good skin, hair & clothing - all of which costs money.  It requires the patience & psychology skills to listen to clients as if you really care about their thoughts & feeligns.  It requires a good voice & acting skills to convince them that you're really hot for them.  If you want a cheap escort, then look around to see if you find one, but don't complain if you can't.  If you want free sex in SL & can't find it, then you're probably short on some social skills yourself.

Perhaps some are normal everyday people roleplaying what they think a high-class escort is?

Perhaps it's wise of anyone supplying this kind of service to set out very clearly at the start what the boundaries are, hence the serious-sounding notecards?

Just two guesses. Shrugs.

I suspect many of us would hate to deal with the men who can't get a bonk via any other avenue. Thank goodness someone is attempting to keep them off the streets. I salute them.

I think the biggest attraction for those who brag about their SL wealth is the fact that just about anyone can.  People can throw around ten or twenty dollars and feel like a big shot.  If they showed off their "Pile of Washingtons" RL they would get laughed out of the room.

Another part of people playing out their dreams in this fantasy world.  I guess "RPing" a rich person makes about as much sense as pretending to be anything else even if I don't really get it.

Not from escorting.  She worked as an escort for a brief time but most of her initial capital came from her shop sales and from flipping the land that hosted her shops.

Anyone claiming that they got rich by doing virtual nookie in SL is full of it.  The demand isn't great enough to price the services high enough for a person to get rich, especially when the internet is already flooded with cheap webcam sex.  It would be hard enough to make enough money as a virtual escort to pay the rent and put food on the table in the escort's real life.

I think it is all relative anyhow.  What one person may consider "a lot of" money in SL wouldn't keep someone else in shoes for a month.  

I'm sure there are a select few who are extremely good at what they do, and have regular customers because of that.  Most of those who describe themselves as escorts are not of that ilk.

Like everything in SL, virtual prostitution is role play. If someone wants to role play a rich high class escort, why not? And what does "rich" mean anyway in a world where a yacht is sold for $2 and a mansion for $10? There are even residents who see themselves as porn movie stars after starring in some machinima video. Your world, your imagination.

Hey, we all like to think we have skills and if we can make some money from employing 'em, that's called making a living. If someone can charge money for someone to indulge in a pixilated fap-fest or Skype-enhanced rumpy pumpy, then my only gripe would be that they're probably getting away with it tax free, which irritates the regular tax-paying stiffs.

A good and dear friend of mine told me she found it actually funny to get paid for "entertaining gentlemen," with one punter spending 5 minuted tying the words "in-out-in-out" over and over, concluding with the immortal "So how was it for you?" I think she deserved every penny of her fees for that!

A good way to gain perspective on things is to go to your local supermarket and price everything in Lindens.

I have long maintained that the slogan for SL should be: "Ninety percent reality at ten percent the price"

The way I heard it, she worked hard for the money.

so hard for it honey

she worked hard for the money

so you better treat her right

 

nine a.m. on the SLT hand

and she's waiting by the pole

and she's looking real pretty

just wait for her clientole

 

it's a sacrifice working day to day

for little lindens just tips for pay

but it's worth it all

just to hear them say that they care

I've never paid nor have I ever charged, but I have one friend who refers to me as her 'virtual vibrator.'

Back in the day, lol, escorts who used voice (via skype or something similar, before SL had voice inword) charged amazing rates and made buckets of money. I'm betting that, for the most part, it's no longer true.

ehh I would say the percentages are much lower than that but it does make the same point.

 

I heard somewhere that part of the SL appeal is success is so easy. Much like one place I shop where they have nice (but not always perfect) houses for less than L$500.

 

Comparing RL prices to SL prices does put things in perspective real quick.

Excellent perspective.  Love your quote!  (laughing)

Hi,

Since I am a SL escort and have own several escort clubs I will respond on what I have seen.

I escort because it is exciting to me and because I make some extra spending money. Both reasons are needed for me. I woul not do it unless I liked it and I would not do if I wasn't being paid.

I make $95,000.00 in real life so I really dont HAVE to escort. However, the $1500.00 I have taken out every Decemeber for the last four years has come in handy at Christmas and I can afford to buy things in SL without putting them on my credit card.

I do know that many of the girls who have worked for me have struggled in RL to make ends meet. The extra money they make escorting in SL helps them tremendously in making through the month.

So I guess my answer is --  no, you wont get rich -- I mean do the math, there are not that many hours in a day!

But if you are a single mom or a college student, you can earn as much as you would get paid in a minimum wage job (after taxes and child care) - especially if you are a good escort with steady regular clients. At the same time, if you dont enjoy it, it isnt worth doing.

My husband use to complain about my SL time until I pointed out that his hobby (golf) costed us as much as my hobby paid. LOL

I do know some girls who run a slex club. A very old one too. They are dedicated to this endeavour and have been for a long time. They do all the usual stuff but will also live cam if I understand it correctly. I have never actually asked specifically what they do or seen price lists. The group chat announcements they make to attract clients to events is just hilarious and I am constantly amazed by their level of creativity which is ongoing.

These girls are very friendly, younger-middle aged, attractive in RL, kind and very funny indeed. I imagine they do turn a fair profit and good luck to them I say. If they are willing to work that hard at it and have the nerve to do all that they deserve every single L they get.

The shocking and funniest thing is that living away from my home area in RL for a decade or so. I met them when I lived 3000km/1500 miles away in another state. Having returned home and just laughing and joking with them one night we discovered that we live in exactly the same area in RL!! ;o wow lol.

We have agreed we will meet one day in RL just for fun. That will be sooo funny for the three of us lolol!
