Hate to sound like the old guy I am, but being wealthier will not make you happier. Doing just about anything for a few bucks is the worst path you can follow. Been there, done that. Stepped back from director level, now just doing my job, spending more time with my family, having more time for my own projects, sports, nature, vacation.

"We work on jobs we hate, so we can buy shit we don't need to impress people we don't even like."
Yeah, but being poor is also hard as f and living paycheck to paycheck is stressful as hell. Money doesn't buy happiness, but it avoids the stress of being late on rent. Glass half full etc..

Once I had a university level ethics class where we actually did have a great discussion about strip clubs. Many of the views that arose in that conversation (circa 2002) are coming up here as well.

Over the years, my views have been reinforced that yes, a women should have the right to use her prowess or appearance if she so chooses to do so. And although there can be social consequences, there really should not be. The stigma of women choosing to be sexy or men objectifying them and wanting them to be sexy needs to go.

Fooey. Women have traded on their looks to get any talent they may have noticed forever.
It's a bit more in your face as social mores loosen, but a quick gander at YouTube will tell you what sells (gains subscribers) and what doesn't.

I recently became aware of Only Fans due to YouTube shorts of some guy who asks people in supercars what they do for a living. I was amazed at how many attractive young ladies said "Only Fans". I figured porn had to be a part of it for them to be driving around in 1/2 million dollar cars. They're free to do what they want but that stuff sticks with a person for life. A fool and his money are soon parted and there seems to be a lot of fools willing to pay for that stuff.

A few years of infamy for the potential of comfortable finances vs slaving at a 9-5 (or multiple jobs) for decades to even break into middle-class; is it even really a question? I remember once being solicited on Yahoo for some sock sniffer to buy my used socks since I had some photos of me being a skateboarder on my profile. Of course, a younger, more naive version of me was like, "no way, that's kinda gross." Looking back, now it's like, "that could have been a cash cow to help me through college!"

You don't seriously believe any of that staged bullshit, do you?

I haven't really put that much thought into it; I just found it interesting. The comments for those YouTube Shorts seem to feature a bunch of people familiar with the featured person's Only Fans site. I guess they could rent an expensive supercar, put an attractive young lady in it, and film a quick video.

I think it's safe to assume every single person in Instagram and YouTube videos with an expensive car/private jet/huge mansion/any sort of flex, is just renting that shit specifically to shoot the video. The people that actually have any of that stuff is probably a drop in the bucket.

That's most definitely a thing of course. But on the flipside, (and not to imply that a large percentage of models are making so much money), I don't think it's a stretch to imagine that people potentially making £20-50k a month would legitimately buy a nice car

We live in an age where people are empowered to make their own life choices and be themselves. If someone is confident and comfortable enough to use only fans than power to them. I don’t see how that degrades from another part of their life.

It’s def an interesting platform. I haven’t used it but trawl through the nsfw threads on Reddit and basically every post is an ad for a OF site. It can’t have that much longevity.

It's not that it SHOULD degrade from another part of their life. It's whether it DOES. As much as we, as a planet, are more open to embracing who we really are than ever before, there is still a huge portion of the population who frowns on this. There are numerous stories in the news of OF people getting "outed" and having it adversely affect their career or societal standing. My concern is not whether it should, but whether people are open to changing their opinion fast enough that it doesn't have a negative effect on the OF users, and whether there is still a knee jerk reaction in people - even those who might be more open once they stop and think about it.

I think that's too broad to really say.

I'm an unshaven, long haired, metal dude with tons of tattoos and piercings, and wear Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, and Cattle Decapitation shirts to work, which is in a giant brewery. I could probably do whatever, short of something criminal, and no one would care.

But if I was a fifth grade teacher in a catholic school in a conservative area...eh, it probably wouldn't go as well.

Everyone's situation is different.

So….is that why everyone is arguing that the At the Gates guitarist is such a creep?…because he was giving away dick pics when he should have been charging a subscription?

If you go down that path than you need to accept it may bite you in other areas. You’ll gain some fans , and you might lose some.

Ultimately the masses have as much choice to dislike what you do , as you have the right to do it. It goes both ways.

Tl;Dr fuck the haters. Do your thing and live with it.
