"This a selection from the article in FORTUNE in 1935. Pages 73, 149 and 150 are missing. The detailed industrial information is not unusual for the magazine in the 1930's, but the wealth of accompanying imagery (even at the back of the book) is unusually rich."

Rentboy.com Gives Back To Escorts After Hurricane Sandy Shuts Down Operations

Rentboy.com Gives Back To Escorts After Hurricane Sandy Shuts Down Operations | Sex Work | Scoop.it

We’ve told you about some of the individuals, organizations and businesses affected by the unsolicited arrival of Hurricane Sandy last week. Among them was Rentboy.com (NSFW), one of the world’s biggest male-escort sites and producer of the annual Hustlaball here in New York.


“Our I.T. department always planned on a backup in the case of a natural disaster—they just never planned for 38 feet of seawater in the basement of our data center,” CEO Jeffrey Davids said. “There’s been chaos dealing with restoring power and a lot of extra stress for everyone. It was a crazy week for us, but we feel very fortunate. There are people without homes and there are lost lives.”


The power is back on, but that was a week that escorts around the world couldn’t make any do-re-mi. Well, Rentboy understands and is reaching out to help:


Rentboy.com understands that escorts around the world lost business during last week’s service disruption. Our IT and sales department are working full time this week to add back the lost time. Monthly ads will automatically receive 8 days added to their purchased ad time. Travel ads will automatically receive store credit for the days their individual ads were down.


We’ve heard of a hooker with a heart of gold, but this is a new one on us!

I've always loved this story, I never get tired of reading about it. I think it's terrible how people call her a prostitute and negative terms such as that. Honestly if my daughter needed to support herself and her son I would much rather her pursue cuddling than prostitution or stripping, but that's just my opinion.

School Offers Prostitution As A 'Professional Course'

School Offers Prostitution As A 'Professional Course' | Sex Work | Scoop.it

A Spanish firm offering a professional course in prostitution which it says 'guarantees a job offer on graduation,' has survived its first legal challenge to be closed down.


For €100, students are taught the history of the world's oldest profession, how to use erotic toys and the most popular positions contained within the Kama Sutra.


The school began advertising the course in May, but within weeks the Valencian regional government filed a case with prosecutors, alleging that the school promoted prostitution, which is illegal in Spain But yesterday prosecutors said there was not any evidence that a criminal offence had been committed because advertisements for students did not promote prostitution, constitute fraud and were not aimed at minors, reported The Times.


The venture has attracted much criticism in the predominantly Catholic country, with many saying it is the wrong way to tempt cash-strapped Spaniards back into work.


But the Valencian firm, which flooded the city's university campus with promotional flyers, says it will make the trade safer.
It will also ensure budding sex-workers will not fall foul of the law, with in depth descriptions of the industry's laws and how to work around them.


Brandon, who has run the one-week course for eight years, said: 'They will know what they are getting in to.


'Prostitution is a career that many people live off from day to day, whether they are single or have a partner.'


He added that 95 people, from the age of 19 to 45, had signed up to the diploma - which takes up two hours each day.


And, once they graduate, they receive their first job offer - to become a teacher in the 'school' where they can help in practical classes.
What they learn in the series of theory and practical classes will enable them to 'earn a lot of money, very easily and quickly', according to the ABC newspaper.


Esther Lopez Barcelo, a United Left MP in Valencia, said the party was considering appealing the ruling.


Sex is a multibillion-pound industry in Spain, with colourfully lit brothels staffed mainly by poor immigrant women from Latin America, Africa and eastern Europe lining highways throughout the country.

A report by BMJ shockingly reveals one in ten medical students are becoming sex workers to finance increased tuition fees. With annual costs rising as high as £9, 000 a year, and debts totalling up to £70K, trainee doctors are forced to seek alternative ways to get paid - and it's all in in aid of clearing uni debt. As a result of this, there's been a surge in med students working at pole dancing, strip and lap dancing clubs...
