Dating , sex work , getting old , sugar daddies , M Last week, I got a press release about "dating" site What'sYourPrice. It started like this: But you know what? There's got to be an easier way! We'll get you that first date, but what happens after the first date is entirely up to you They also helpfully included the top 25 "dating for dollars" universities, 1 of which was Georgia State and 3 of which was my alma mater, NYU.
My price, friends, is not high. My shit is cheap, yo. On a given day, you could probably talk me into giving it up for a really delicious sandwich. That said, there's a time in a young girl's life when she is ripe for whoring, when she may choose to turn the tables on the objectification she's been subjected to since first blush of puberty, when her dewy youth can serve as a passport to more expensive entrees and first class tickets.
The lights will be dim and flattering there, and people will prounounce Sauvignon blanc flawlessly and confidently. They needn't be exceedingly pretty -- I wasn't -- young and sexually available should do it.
Even if I weren't engaged, that time, for me, has passed. While I feel like hot shit most days, I know I'm no longer at a market high.
The "baby" after "sugar" does eventually start to seem a bit mocking if you play that game too long. And "partner in crime" is code for "lady who won't tell my wife about our NSA boning. Show up to your first date with a smile on! Smiling is the hardest part. Some more rules and guidelines: I'm trying to even imagine the awkwardness of asking for 50 percent cash up front at the beginning of a date. I bet a lot of dudes get away with not paying because it's just too embarassing to ask. Especially since the site's FAQ suggests "small claims court" as the solution for nonpayment.
That's a "Judge Judy" I would love to see. When I first set up my profile, I had to choose between being an "attractive" user or a "generous" one, which sort of reminded me how I'd get confused at theme restaurants as a kid when the bathrooms had wacky labels on the door.
What if I'm both attractive and generous??? Am I a bloke or a sheila? Within a day or so, 2 members had "favorited me.
Let me tell you, the gulf between "OMG, somebody wants to pay me to go out with them! If I wanted good for me, I'd eat broccoli, Corynne.
When you receive an offer, you're given the choice to accept, reject or counter. In case you were wondering, the site won't let you offer less than 5 dollars and advises rounding up to whole dollar amounts, because "nobody likes coins.
I'd much rather just bang one dude for a few hundred dollars than pretend to be interested in 6 of them. Although I'm sure that "further negotiations" in person can increase the cash-flow potential. That said, if I were 20, nubile, and dating anyway, I'd totally be tempted to give this thing a whirl.
And even though I'm about to go delete my profle, I'm glad that technology is continuing to invent new ways to court sexual attention. Because everybody on Chatroulette's already seen my boobs.
