As Gary Becker pointed out

Well colour me surprised. She didn’t see this coming? That a potential boyfriend wouldn’t like the fact that she’s been exposing herself to all and sundry on teh interwebs. Well, blow me down, what a surprise.

Gary Becker did point out that there’s something of a little conundrum in sex work. Very large numbers of people are qualified to do this relatively unskilled labour (sure, skilled labour here is preferable). And yet the prices paid for this unskilled labor are very much higher than other unskilled labour.

What gives?

The answer being that there’s some consumption of capital going on here. Transference of the long term wealth – through marriage – opportunity into short term income.

Tarts tend to – tend to, there are always a few who hypergamize – marry less well than they would have, ceteris paribus, if they’d not been tarts.

OK, we might not talk about marriage these days but the lady above is an exemplar of exactly this point. Yep, sex work produces cash now but at the expense of reducing future opportunities. Capital consumption to produce that income.

Of course, there is a solution here. Date some of her OnlyFans. But then which “beauty” wants to date those sort of sad little men?

  1. Making thousands of pounds a month from posting racy snaps online might sound like a dream job for some – but one OnlyFans model

    “Model” ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    what is it with this thing where all young women look exactly the same, with awful angular eyebrows and the trout pout? It isn’t attractive, it’s ugly. But maybe that’s just me.

    Longrider speaks truly. A lot of young women seem to be taking style cues from Ru Paul’s Drag Race, which is like allowing a mongoloid to take a packet of felt tip pens to a fresco painted by Giotto.

    Tarts will always be unloved, and rightly so, but nota benny the implicit sexual politics of Putanoy’s Complaint:

    “I’m very frustrated because I just can’t seem to hold down a boyfriend at all because of this. I just think guys should be more open-minded. It’s not fair.”

    Amanda believes the men she dates are “jealous” that she talks to other guys on the subscription-based app, as well as being envious of the money she makes.

    Sex and love should be FAIR and It Is The Men Who Are Wrong for preferring girls who don’t flash their fannies to strangers on the internet for money.

    The Mirror plays this straight, as an excuse to show off her lingerie photos and get those sticky-sweet clicks, but it’s hard to imagine a bloke being given any sort of sympathetic coverage for implying he /deserves/ to be loved by women. More likely he’d be crucified for his sense of entitlement.

    Can’t turn a ho into a housewife, said St. Tupac, who I like to imagine is winning epic rap battles in heaven. On some level all men grok this, even the simps currently wasting cash on dis bitch. They’ll just move on to the next one as soon as the first faint traces of crow’s feet trouble her pretty eyes. Women like to believe makeup is magic, and they can just trowel away the years, but men are literally evolved to see through all that with the same keen attention your dog gives to a freshly cooked steak.

    It’s easy to blame the strumpet, and of course we should. But it’s also a failure of socialisation – mothers, grannies and aunts used to teach young women not to be whores in order to spare them the scorn and disappointment this young-ish trollop is now discovering as she heads towards her 30’s and an inevitable, irreversible depreciation of her value as either e-thot or girlfriend.

  2. “Very large numbers of people are qualified to do this relatively unskilled labour (sure, skilled labour here is preferable). And yet the prices paid for this unskilled labor are very much higher than other unskilled labour.”

    I’d disagree with the pay side of it. Hookers earn a lot less than people think. Sure. 2-3000 an hour at the top end. But how many hours? How many hours over a year? My experience, they earn about what they would do as a similar girl doing civilian employment. Especially if you take their overheads into consideration. Paying for somewhere to work from. They’re high maintenance. Hair & nails can be 200/week. Clothes. The scanty stuff doesn’t wear or wash well. Bottom end not very attractive not too bright. About the same as a supermarket checkout girl. Top end, stunningly attractive, 2 or 3 languages, the style to be trophy girlfriend, the intelligence to be a good companion. The alternative’s fashion or photo model, top flight PR, even TV or film work. Serious money.
    Although there is another factor. Since your average prossie is a lazy, unreliable, scatterbrained, argumentative, barking mad, thieving, lying, violently aggressive piece of shit they’re probably in the occupation best suits them. They’d never hold down anything else.

    Except maybe Vice-President of the USA?

  4. She’s a really weird looking bird, too. Literally screaming ‘I am insane’. Wouldn’t go near her personally, irrespective of her online activities.

  5. Steve,

    “Women like to believe makeup is magic, and they can just trowel away the years, but men are literally evolved to see through all that with the same keen attention your dog gives to a freshly cooked steak.”

    On the odd occasion that I catch some daytime TV or read a magazine with make-up tips, it staggers me how much women spend on make-up. They all think it’s giving them an edge, so it’s then an arms race leading to £500 bottles of foundation.

    And every man can spot women doing these things.

    She’s a really weird looking bird, too. Literally screaming ‘I am insane’. Wouldn’t go near her personally, irrespective of her online activities.

    Agreed. And I’d suggest that if someone took the time and effort to chisel off all the makeup, what we’d find is a rather average looking young woman. When you’re good looking, you don’t need the porn star makeup.

    It’s interesting to note that seems to be genuinely baffled by the idea many men simply aren’t interested in a Meaningful Relationship with a woman presents herself to the world as a commodity… and a hypersexualized commodity at that.

    Evidently it has never occurred to her that men are reluctant to marry women who acts in a way that suggests they might give the entire roster of the New York Yankees blowjobs one day.

  7. Except maybe Vice-President of the USA?

    Classic example. She was smarter and more ambitious. Picked the right old guy to suck off and look where it got her. Hookers lack that sort of focus.

    I really don’t understand OnlyFans. I have had sad droughts with only tissues and t’internet for comfort, but I can’t see why anyone would pay for porn at all. Never mind soft porn from some fat arsed Asda-standard munter. If these ‘simps’ saved up they could pay for an actual shag every now and then.

  8. So here’s the surprising thing: why are men throwing money at this fugly 27 year old when presumably they could gawk at an attractive 18 year old for the same price?

    Or are the 18 year olds making seven figures?

  9. I wasted ten seconds of my life to look at the Mirror story and see the expressionless pseudo-drag queen in question (no, not even if she were paying me…) but was more amused by the “related stories” tab.

    “Men get too nervous to speak to me – I’ve been single for seven years” right next to “Woman shares guy’s painfully relentless efforts to chat her up while she’s at work”.

    If it wasn’t the Mirror I’d suspect someone was taking the mickey…

    “lazy, unreliable, scatterbrained, argumentative, barking mad, thieving, lying, violently aggressive piece of shit”

    Could’ve sworn you were talking about a well-known woman who has some very minor film and TV work on her CV there.

  11. Can we reverse this?

    At 50+ I will not assume any Lady I associate with is “innocent” and a Virgin. It rather….disqualifies… any negotiation towards Intimacy.

    Equally.. ( and I have acquantance of a couple ) when you can top Top-Salaries just spreading your legs and be “in control” as long as it lasts?
    And no….I could not even start their hourly rates….

  12. The growing realisation of how much social capital one has lost must be a crushing burden.

    She made her bed and she has to lie on it, but I do have a certain amount of sympathy for a woman approaching 30, who finds that the media tell the world she was a member of RyanAir cabin crew.

  13. If you ask whores why they do it they often say “The money”.

    If you ask the follow-up question “How much money have you got? ” the answer is generally “None”.

    So it isn’t really about the money at root. Save for a few at the top end who do end up rich.

    Same with criminals –a few at the top end win big. Biden/Clinton/Bush crime families springs to mind. But most have miserable jail-time life and have very little accumulated wealth.

  14. It all really is about the money, Ecksy. But like most criminals, they have great difficulty sticking to it. I’ve seen girls pick up a grand in one day. And two days later not have sufficient for a phone top-up to work.
