There are two types of humans that I will never understand, both of which connect via a “wish list” that can be found in the bio of an aspiring “models” social network page.
The wish list was originally dreamt up to make it easy for guests of an occasion to purchase gifts for the celebrant. It appears that this useful shopping basket has been somewhat hijacked for a more distasteful purpose…
Twitter is now full of girls with followers ranging in the 10-30k, who post racy selfies everyday to the delight of their “fans” encouraging them to buy them expensive gifts for the pleasure. On top of this many supplement their income working on live webcam streams, speaking to lonely men who genuinely believe that one day they will end up in a passionate relationship with them.
The more “high-end rinsers”, will end up on Babestation or another similar channel where calls can cost up to $2 per minute to chat to a girl onscreen, lounging on a bed in suggestive clothing talking about what they have been up to with lots of sex innuendo, a typical conversation would go like this;
Girl: Hey baby, what you been doing today – I missed you xx
Caller: I’m just at home watching tele, it’s raining outside so I think I will stay in today and eat my Pot Noodle.
Girl: Oooo baby, thats nice, I like it when its wet, he he – ooo baby is it spicy (*licks lips)
Its hard to have a go at the girls too much for doing this work, at least many of them are open about the work they do rather than the “Instagram models” who secretly prostitute themselves and pretend they are strong legitimate independent business women, but what I find particularly depressing is that this actual industry exists in the first place, and is clearly hugely profitable?
It all boils down to supply and demand and it is amazing that in the year 2015 there are still thousands of desperately sad / mentally ill men up and down the country paying crazy money to be a “friend” (or more) with a tacky looking glamour girl. The wish list recently made the national press when it was revealed the self titled “Selfie Sisters” had made over 75k from men who are buying them gifts online and told the Daily Mirror;
“It’s not seedy. It’s hardly like we’re selling our bodies. We’re doing many of these men a favour. They love our pictures and tell us how fun we look. We brighten up their day, in an innocent way.
“We’d never meet or do anything sexual. We’re not like that. My boyfriend doesn’t have a problem with it. He thinks it’s funny, if anything. Although he’s stuck on what to get for Christmas as I already have so much.”
“We know how lucky we are. What girl doesn’t love to be spoiled? Some people might criticise us, but if someone sent them a beautiful new pair of shoes, would they return them? I doubt it. “If men want to treat us, who are we to argue?”
I highly doubt that they are innocently accepting gifts as they claim rather than actually encouraging men to buy them things and keeping them on a piece of string leaving them to think that there is a chance things may go further with them. Let’s be honest, is it really plausible for a “sane” guy to want to continue to buy gifts for someone without expecting something in return at some point? If so, these men must have some mental issues so I think it is fair to say they are simply taking advantage of them.
I doubt the girls have any thought as to what financial position they are leaving these men in, these men will not be high flying CEO’s with plenty of money to burn, they will mostly be very lonely men who are no doubt racking up some serious debt to fund these girls lifestyles. If I was rinsing a guy knowing that he could not afford his rent the next month or pay for food for his children, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night, even if it was on a brand new memory foam mattress from one of my “gifters”.
In any case, there is nothing illegal about what they are doing, it is morally questionable, but who is anyone to judge what another person decides to do with their bodies or how they make money. The main issue I have is when they come out and start looking down on those that do make an honest living without selling themselves out, as one of the sisters said;
“I think its hilarious, people think we are ‘stupid airheads’ accepting some nice freebies yet they’re the ones out in the freezing cold hoping to get the very same items just slightly discounted, what mugs!”
This is where I think people have genuine reasons to start “hating” on girls who do this work, it’s not so much the fact you do what you do, it’s more the flaunting and putting other down that are really grafting and providing for their families making an honest living, that shows that underneath the fake hair, thick makeup and skimpy clothes, they really are just not nice people.
So, if you are a guy who is sending gifts to girls online who you have never met, just stop, you are being mugged off, they don’t want anything other than money from you so why don’t you spend that money on yourself, maybe put it towards online dating website memberships? Or a hobby where you can actually meet nice girls who like you for more than simply what you can buy them?
It’s amazing that this even needs to be said, I have little doubt that even when this is spelled out in-front of these guys it will have no effect and when they eventually die penniless at an empty funeral with none of the girls there to see them off, they may just look back at themselves and think how stupid they have been, but by then it will be too late.
