I think the mod team is... over-zealous to the point of insanity. I've seen two separate posts wherein a person got banned for using emojis but neither post contained emojis. People in popular snow threads are frequently afraid that newbies who fail to sage are going to cause mods to put the thread on auto-sage and people in popular pt threads are afraid newbies failing to sage will result in the thread getting moved to snow. If person B has a thread but engages in drama with person A, half the responses to the drama will be demands that person B only be discussed in their thread, even though the drama spans two people. I used to enjoy reading most of the snow offerings but there seems little sense in it anymore since basically every 200 comments or so the threads devolve into a discussion about the board rules.Does anyone else think their rules are way too strict? I've been lurking for a while looking at their Nemu thread and I've seen people banned for "not adhering to chan culture" (using name field, emojis, etc) These things are frowned upon on 4chan, but people don't get banned for them iirc. Plus the thinking emoji is a meme and nobody complains when you use it on 4chan. I don't know what their problem is.
the name field is for those who are persons of interest, like friends of the cow. someone the cows have a personal problem with, or the cow themselves.Why do they have the name field if you can't use it?
Not sure they paid off SL, just paid their living/bill through a long stretch where they happened to attend some sort of school. Going to bet most got their “degree” in something utterly useless (sociology, gender studies, communications) or went to some terrible career center/community college/art institute of America scam.I find it really interesting what they get up to in order to pay for their student debts.
I'm an escort, and it's alright. The job itself is very up-and-down. Most of my clients are middle/upper class, and I've met some very great people through it. On the other hand, I've always had a very low sex drive and I've only ever been attracted to three clients.
I wouldn't describe it as empowering. It's not an industry you want to stay in for very long and the income is very unstable. Tumblr/twitter sex workers are really cringy and most of them exaggerate the more glamourous aspects of it. also "whorephobia" lol
I’m an escort.
It's not glamorous as people online make it seems, unless, as it was said before, you’re privileged enough to only get top clients.
I’m afraid most of the time when I’m going to meet a new client, it’s a risky job for numerous reasons and I don’t enjoy it.
I’ve found some nice, really nice and good people, but they’re the absolutely minority. There’s a lot of gross and unpleasant people, requests for all kinds of really bizarre, disturbing and disgusting fetiches, people asking discounts, people just asking nudes to masturbate, this part is really annoying, revenues are very unstable too.
This not the kind of thing I want to do for long.
BUT IN THE OTHER HAND
I’m grateful for being psychologically and physically able to do it, otherwise I’d be on the streets. I want to change my life one day and I don’t like this job but I’ll be grateful to it forever.
I used CL to find sex for funsies and eventually got the idea to start charging money. I didn't charge a crazy ton but the revenue was worth it. I screened pretty hard and got lucky with my dudes. Didn't run into sketchy situations and came out clean. Found a sugar daddy who was actually a decent guy, unfortunately he had to move away.
I've got a degree now and a very involved job so I have no need to do any of that anymore and likely never will. Overall the experience was alright and hasn't affected my life whatsoever.
I’ve tried it all (sugar, escort, stripper, internet) since I got into it all about 10 years ago. I’m retiring. I have a degree and a future husband.
If anyone needs advice or wants to ask a “stupid question” feel free. I had the most questions about stripping when I started.
I did all this as a quick means to an end. I grew up white trash with no money. Not gonna sugar anything. I would say majority of girls have something going on to do this sort of thing (molestation, mania, depression, drugs). I’m classic bpd myself.
First independent sex work on Craigslist then sugar then internet stuff then escort then sugar then stripper then escort.
Usually I liked to just have on sd to help me out with bills. The stripping time was when I had a boyfriend. That was the most demeaning of any of the work. It attracts the worst men. Really changed my perspective on a lot of things. However, it was the most fun. I was never popular or hung out at parties. So it had that sort of fun party, center of attention thing sometimes. I did it for 3 years only but miss that and some of the girls.
I can compartmentalize, so I really feel no emotions from the sex or whatnot. It’s just biology. I think men are lesser for having this weakness and compulsion to get off.
It’s not a life I wanted or expected but it what it is. Like I said it’s a quick means to an end. Part of me is lazy. Life is too short. I didn’t want to work in a factory anymore or cvs. I didn’t want to date crumb bums from my neighborhood. Now I have a degree. Still need to figure out next steps.
I've never posted there because as far as I can tell, either the mods or rules are insane. If I go through a website anywhere and the threads are full of (user was banned for this post) on completely benign posts, I'm not hanging around to figure out who has what stick up their ass. If I wanted to do that I would join Something Awful.Does anyone else think their rules are way too strict? I've been lurking for a while looking at their Nemu thread and I've seen people banned for "not adhering to chan culture" (using name field, emojis, etc) These things are frowned upon on 4chan, but people don't get banned for them iirc.

Oh shit, I think we got a political lesbian in the making!
LOL how the fuck can you hang around sites full of women being catty, miserable bitches waiting to tear into each other and think that men are the cause of all your fuckin' problems?
No, you're not remembering wrong. Obstensibly it's to prevent people from shitting up the threads with thirst and powerleveling, but in practice, it just protects the posters who spam misandry and sperg over inconsequential flaws in people's appearances. You can even agree with the board culture 100% and still get banned for being male.Don't they have a special rule for male users of the site? To not reveal their gender or something? It reminds me of some girl talk board on 8chan where males are simply banned because guys have all of 8chan to themselves and that one board is the only place for femanons or some autistic shit like that. It was months ago that I saw that so I may be completely wrong and am just thinking of another site, but it's ridiculous how much men are villified there.
I only use lolcow.farm to read up on a few certain cows when I have nothing else to do so I don't even see most of the misandry from my own visits but from anecdotes.
If you look at the friend finder thread, it's like looking into the incel mirror universe.LOL how the fuck can you hang around sites full of women being catty, miserable bitches waiting to tear into each other and think that men are the cause of all your fuckin' problems?
