I just read this article, and was shocked. I never knew it was legal for police to do these things.

https://www.glamour.com/story/alaska-cops-defend-sexual-contact-sex-workers-arrests?mbid=nl_071017_Monthly_glamourgram&CNDID=36461398&spMailingID=11443267&spUserID=MTMyNTE4MzIwNDM0S0&spJobID=1200867389&spReportId=MTIwMDg2NzM4OQS2

This is just wrong. If they can do this and then charge the women with prostitution, then the police should also be charged.

A few years ago Donald Trump stated, "the electoral college is a disaster for a democracy."

I think he was proved right yesterday.  :'(

News, Current Events, and World Affairs / Sex Education:Abstinence
« on: August 29, 2015, 08:07:42 AM »
Read this interesting article on abstinence only sex education. Much of what they are telling kids is awful and blatantly false.

General Discussion / Sex and Your Birth Month
« on: June 13, 2015, 08:08:07 AM »
An interesting article on what kind of sex each birth month likes - based on horoscopes I imagine, but fun anyway.

I think I'd best not share mine  ;D

Art and Entertainment / Women's Magazines
« on: February 27, 2015, 08:22:46 PM »
I'm hoping members may be able to help me out. I'm looking for reputable women's magazines, either online or print, that may be interested in running a personal experience story that includes encounters with a companion. Those I've tried so far have not been open to the idea. Any suggestions?

General Discussion / Blacklists
« on: December 11, 2014, 01:01:28 PM »
Max had commented in another thread that there are blacklists of bad clients. I was going to post in that thread, but after thinking about it, I decided to start a new one because it seems we have actually come across a subject we haven't yet discussed. After reading Max's post, I Googled "escort blacklists."  What I found is pretty scary stuff. These lists were begun to protect female escorts from dangerous men and men who cheated them. Then gay male escorts started using them, and based on Max's remark, apparently straight male escorts are also using them.

So, what did I find scary?  Some of the sites are reported on the ripoff sites. Others were written about in advice columns. It's very easy for escorts to misuse the sires. One man was blacklisted by the females escort he had been seeing because, in addition to paying her usual fee, she demanded that he pay her rent. He wouldn't, and was blacklisted. In another case, a client was asked to write an endorsement, and he wouldn't do it. Blacklisted! In the case of a male escort and female client, he threatened to blacklist her if she wrote a negative review of him after he refused to stop an act that was against her will.  Some of the sites were posted on scam sites because they sent out emails to people who had been blacklisted informing them that they had to pay money to join and see what had been said about them. 

Another misuse involved men and women who weren't even really escorts. They wanted to get even with people (who saw escorts) they held a grudge against, so they posed as escorts, joined a blacklist site, and blacklisted these people. The escorts, of course, didn't have to give their real names, but clients are blacklisted under their real names. This leaves them open to blackmail as well. I don't know if this has ever happened, but it certainly is a possibility.

I can understand why female escorts want a way to protect themselves from dangerous clients, but now that we women are aware of these blacklists, it will add one more thing to the list of worries a woman has before her first date with a companion. We already have to have concerns about our physical safety, the possibility he won't even show up after we pay him, and legal worries. Now we add to that fears of being blacklisted because:

1). He might want more money than we agreed to, or some kind of gift, and we refuse.

2) He wants a sexual activity that we don't, and we don't comply.

3) We contacted him to get to know him, decided he's not for us, and so didn't book him.

4) He's a companion we never even saw, but perhaps got into some sort of disagreement with him on a forum.

5). He's very satisfied with us as a client and wants to prevent us from seeing other escorts.

This whole blacklist thing seems sleazy and backroomish to me. I'm not personally worried about it, but the idea is flabbergasting to me. When we post an endorsement here, the companion doesn't have to pay to see it. In the private section, he can even add his own comments.

I know very well that companions can be given false reviews, too. For that reason, I've never been big on reviews. To me an endorsement is a totally different thing. The very word means it is positive.it lets other women know that at the least, this man is for real and not dangerous. If a woman sees a certain man and isn't happy for whatever reason, she doesn't have to post an endorsement and she can warn other women in the Ladies' section.

I'll get off my soapbox for now, but I hope this will lead to some discussion. Just so somebody doesn't blacklist me for my comments.

General Discussion / Fat!
« on: November 07, 2014, 10:00:30 AM »
I know from other threads that a number of the female members of this forum -including myself- are overweight. For some of us, that was reason to hesitate contacting a companion. I've read studies that show people view fat women as lazy and stupid. More and more scientific research is proving that weight isn't entirely under our control. There are many factors that influence the ability to maintain a healthy weight: prescription medications we are take, medical conditions, poor health that prohibits exercise, hormone imbalances, the artificial ingredients in our food (some people are more sensitive to them), and even the amount of stress we are under. I'm posting  a link to an essay that describes being fat perfectly:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kathleen-brooks/being-fat_b_6097544.html?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000592

Like the author, I haven't always been overweight, so I've seen the difference in how we are treated. If a woman is fat, it doesn't matter if she is intelligent, sensitive, well-educated, kind, talented, or anything else. She is FAT so nothing else matters and she is invisible. These attitudes have held me, and many others, back from doing things we want to do. Many of us lose the confidence we once had, even though we remain the same person.

Companions seem to be an exception to society's perception of overweight women. I am thankful for that, but I wanted to share the above essay because it is so true, and it made me feel a little better to hear another woman share these feelings.

General Discussion / Images of Beauty
« on: August 21, 2014, 11:17:09 AM »
All ages, all sizes, all colors, all shapes, scars - all beautiful.  A reminder that we often forget that beauty comes from within. This made me cry.

Art and Entertainment / Fading Gigolo
« on: August 19, 2014, 08:56:16 PM »
The movie Fading Gigolo was released to DVD this week. I just watched it. I didn't have high hopes for it based on the previews I'd seen. It turned out it was pretty good. Has anyone else seen it? Any opinions?

General Discussion / Getting to Know You
« on: July 12, 2014, 10:07:18 PM »
Things have been way too quiet around here, and it's been awhile since we've had any of those 'getting to know you better' lists. There are several new members, too, who haven't posted at all, so I hope they'll join in. Here goes:

1. Do you have a favorite article of clothing? If yes, what is it?

2. Can you go technology-free for 24 hours? What do you think you'd miss the most?

3. Have you ever been in a natural disaster? If yes, tell us about it.

4. What's something in which you regularly indulge? What do you like about it?

5. What is your favorite work of art? Why?

6. Could you go for a week with no actual human contact? Why or why not? (Phone calls, texts, emails are OK).

7. What superpower do you wish you had? Why?

8. What are two ways in which you've changed since you were 25?

9. Do you keep a journal/diary? If so, do you use it more for your thoughts or to record events?

10. How far away do you live from the place in which you born? Why did you stay or why did you go?

General Discussion / Boxes
« on: January 08, 2014, 09:38:47 PM »
The subject of the societal Ďboxesí seems to come up regularly here, and it got me thinking. My thought went off in two directions. Iíll explain one train of thought at a time, and then hope to hear some other viewpoints.  Some people like to think they are nonconformists and donít fit in the box. From what Iíve seen they have a different box. Iíll give an example. A number of years ago, I had a teenage foster son who was hell bent staying out of the box, with being a nonconformist. He had long hair when it wasnít fashionable, dyed some locks blue, wore black nail polish, had large tattoos and  some piercings, and wore only black clothes. When he had friends over, I noticed they looked the same. And if one of them deviated by being too clean cut in any way, they made fun of him for Ďconforming.í In my opinion, they were simply conforming to a different groupís box. Of course, I wasnít too popular when I expressed that opinion.

Sometimes it seems on CdM, weíre supposed to be polyamorous, have certain standards of attractiveness by wearing make-up, having a personal shopper to find our best look, and wearing sexy lingerie (females). We should be very sexually adventurous. Is this a box set up by a different group? I think it may be. Itís a non-mainstream group, yes, but a group all the same. When I look at people I know, thereís only one I know of who makes no effort to conform to anyone elseís expectations. (And itís not me). He is true to himself, without caring what anyone else thinks.

My second train of thought is that we may judge people by saying they are in the box, as if Itís a bad thing. It is, for someone who doesnít want to be there and doesnít have the courage to get out. But some people are quite happy there, and thatís their right. That doesnít make them bad people.

There are also people who seem to be in a certain box, but really arenít. How many of we women who see companions have normal jobs and lives? How many would be afraid to tell others they see companions? Weíd be amazed to find out how many people keep secrets. Itís a way of doing what they want without being condemned. And, many of those who are open about alternative lifestyles still strive to fit in with others who live the same lifestyle.

The more I think about boxes, the more complex the subject seems. People are complicated and society is complicated, and that makes it hard to analyze the subject of boxes. Other thoughts?

News, Current Events, and World Affairs / Murder Trial in Texas
« on: June 11, 2013, 06:38:12 PM »
I just read a story that qualifies as an OMG, and what are these people thinking. A man named  Ezekiel Gilbert hired a female escort form a Craigslist ad. The ad said nothing about sex, but only companionship. He hired her for 30 minutes. At the end of that time, she got up to leave. He followed her outside, saying she stole his money because he was supposed to get sex. He then shot her, paralyzing her. She later died. He was charged with murder, but a jury acquitted him. Why?  In Texas, it's legal to kill someone for taking your property at night. Or, to prevent criminal mischief (vandalism, shoplifting, etc.) from happening, also at night. How in the world do laws like this ever get passed?  You can read more about it here:

This is disgusting.
