Are Love Scenes Hot To Make?

Are Love Scenes Hot To Make? | Sex Work | Scoop.it
Think that the actors & actresses have dream jobs where they get paid to have "all that fun"? You might want to read this first ~ before you quit that day job!
When people find out I’ve been an actor and a movie producer, the question I hear most often is, “So, how is it making those love scenes?” What I love is the grin on their face that follows the question. It starts small, more like smirk, and then just grows. They finally get to hear the real dirt. Gossip from the source and you just know it’s going to be good.

Talking Dirty: The Women Who Still Make Bank as Phone Sex Operators

Talking Dirty: The Women Who Still Make Bank as Phone Sex Operators | Sex Work | Scoop.it

A phone rings — it's always ringing at this time of night. Conveniently waiting, sitting on the far end of her living room couch in her favorite pink robe, Kathleen Vassmer looks down to see which one of the mobiles is buzzing on the coffee table in front of her. Eyeing the lit screen closest to where her feet are propped, she hurries to pick up the call from an unfamiliar number before it goes blank, again. In an uniquely juvenile voice, one not entirely fitting the image of a mature woman working the evening block, she answers, "Hello." 


But the man on the opposite end of the wire isn't looking for Kathleen tonight. "Is this Abby?" he asks instead. Which she replies, in a dainty manner, knowing exactly who the caller is inquiring for, "Hi, honey." Because six days out of the week in the waning hours between midnight and sunrise, the late shift, Kathleen Vassmer takes on a role of more than just herself —she's "Abby," Daddy's little girl.

TRICKS OF THE TRADE: Porn’s ‘Best Practices’ for Content Trades and Shares

TRICKS OF THE TRADE: Porn’s ‘Best Practices’ for Content Trades and Shares | Sex Work | Scoop.it

These days, porn performers don’t have to depend solely on being booked with established companies. As the effects of Measure B and online piracy impede major studio productions, some industry trends see performers subsidizing their careers with cam shows, custom videos, Clips4Sale studios, and launching their own member sites. Equipment and web technology is becoming increasingly accessible. Performers of any notoriety can grab a camera and do it themselves. You scratch my back; I’ll scratch yours.


Looking to learn from my embarrassing mistakes and gain ‘best-practice’ knowledge for the next time, I did what I should have done years ago: I decided to ask around.

Why a Bollywood actress doing sex work is none of our business

Why a Bollywood actress doing sex work is none of our business | Sex Work | Scoop.it

There is something unethical and pornographic about the way the media announced the arrest of a young National-Award-winning actress for prostitution this week. The media was mean-spirited when it divulged racy details about the way the West Zone police (presumably from Mumbai as the 23-year-old actress lives in the city, according to sketchy media reports) along with Hyderabad police, swooped into a Banjara Hills hotel to arrest the actress and her "pimp" after setting up a decoy client.

The media didn’t care to conceal the name of the actress and but lasciviously disclosed every possible detail about her. This despite the fact that the law clearly says that the practice of selling one’s own sexual service is permissible, that sexual activity in exchange for a fee, between two consenting adults and in private is not a crime.

Skanky Panties & The Business of Faux Fish Juices

Skanky Panties & The Business of Faux Fish Juices | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Satan's Angel was telling me that a friend of hers had, a few years ago, tried to talk her into selling panties ~ and I don't mean opening a lingerie store or having one of those lingerie home parties, I mean selling the panties she's worn, right off her own bottom.

Apparently the friend had quite a nice business going, and when Satan's Angel questioned how much she made, how many panties she sold etc. The friend assured her this was very lucrative and that she sold more panties than she could realistically wear.
