However, when it comes to getting casual online sexual hook ups, we have it SO much easier than you or, since this is all about craigslist, I'll just say Str8s, to keep with the lingo. Women by and large just don't go looking for casual sex like men do, most likely because they can, for the most part, get it on the street fairly easily if they're looking for a man.
So while there is a section for Women Seeking Men W4M , even for a casual encounter they are likely expecting dinner and drinks first, and the appearance of respectability. Also, most women posting on casual encounters are A: Girls operating webcams they expect you to pay for aka spam. The reason so many str8 men indulge their bi-curiosity which you will come to learn and learn well throughout this piece on Craigslist is that they simply get fed up looking for women only to get scammed over and over again.
Most posts by men under M4W go ignored or are only answered by the previously mentioned hookers and webcam girls, and sometimes the occasional horribly unfortunate-looking real woman looking for a casual good time. And yet, you always have to send them pics first. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but most women actually looking for sex on Craigslist from everyone I know who's actually met up with one really aren't the type to socialize beyond a certain point or even know to look or groom past a certain I'm not saying it is impossible to meet an attractive woman on CL, I suppose if you keep trying it'll eventually happen.
But same goes with meeting anyone you'll find attractive in pretty much any situation. We live in an age of abbreviated words and phrases, mostly due to the wonderful world of the internet, which is still something "new", I don't care how many of you kids grew up with it. Anyway, no place on earth exemplifies this culture of abbreviation more than the Craigslist personals section, or the "Casual Encounters" section.
There are several CL shorthand terms, but I'd say these are some of the essentials. DDF means "drug and disease free" this is big in M4M encounters. Oh, M4M is Men for Men btw. You do know what btw is though right?? After you know the lingo it's really just about making a post , including an image and waiting for fish to bite.
Having a picture on there is really important, as a lot of people filter out the submissions without photos. Fleiss said that for her customers, she honored requests that men had for different kinds of women.
She once, for instance, found "gigantic, gigantic girls" for a client who preferred heavy-set women. Austin said that at her brothels, it's often older, more experienced women who command the higher rates. The young girl a lot of times just starting out doesn't have all the necessary tools.
That comes with age, and it comes with practice. It's like taking a rookie baseball player versus a seasoned baseball player, if you know what I mean.
What else are patrons paying for? Though Spitzer's very public outing and other high-profile cases may indicate otherwise, discretion is also considered a key benefit of high-priced prostitution operations.
Fleiss, who served time in jail following her convictions, refused to release her clients' names during court proceedings. Austin said she would go to jail before disclosing her clients' identities. At Austin's businesses and other legal Nevada brothels, customers benefit from a state law requiring prostitutes to undergo weekly health screenings. Fleiss said that even at illegal operations, high-earning prostitutes tend to be healthy because they can afford to eat right and have regular medical checkups.
For call girls, staying healthy is also important to maintaining their looks and their earning prowess, she said. But the glamorous side of high-end prostitution operations and escort services -- beautiful women and big bucks -- pale when compared with the risks, said Tracy Quan, a former prostitute and author whose experiences inspired her novel "Diary of a Married Call Girl. Quan said that when she worked for escort services in , she lived in constant fear of getting caught.
The businesses, she said, "were always being hassled by the police; they were always being closed down or shaken down. Anti-prostitution activists argue that the distinctions between working for a high-priced ring or on the street are irrevelant.
