Oh Look, Someone Is Quoting Us

Each day for one month The Invisible Man project will show you the words used by punters to review their experiences with women in prostitution. Without seeking to prove, disprove or debate choice on the part of the women described, we invite you to reconsider:

What do you think about HIS choice?

WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
 
Of course the purpose of this is to cherry pick stuff and make it out to look like it is representative of all sex work (and it's working on bumsnet, they are lapping it all up)

Yep, after going through heaps and heaps of reviews to find a few select cherry picked lines that their target audience (sites like bumsnet) want to hear.

Will G pursue this as there are copyright issues here?

Well to be fair they are words that are used and published on here. I've always thought that the way some FRs read and some comments on threads especially in the Soho walk up thread do reflect badly on this site and of course those who don't approve of prostitution will use them. 

 

If I did the same using only lovely kind respectful prose taken from FR's to prove a point the antis would ague that I was cherry picking.

 

I know a lot of you are lovely men who respect the women you see and are appalled at the way in which some men treat some women and as much as I love my job I hate that there are so many women who are doing this through lack of choice or coercion.  Just because you are respectful and just because I am happy does that mean we should ignore those who hate what they do and don't want to be doing it but have no way out?

he's got a nice way with graphics may be he could use his time more wisely or at least put links to the girls pages he's talking about so they get a bit of free advertising

Not long ago Amanda Holden criticised bumsnet's judgemental bitching, and bumsnet responded with a thread bitching about her.

 

Is she the plastic lady from bgt that banged bob the builder?

I presume she likes the yummy mummy twatty type sites..

And with no links to the specific field report how do we know he/she isn't just making stuff up or changing words?

 

Putting "source: punternet" is a bit vague since there must be tens of thousands of field reports.

I tried reverse searching some of these and couldn't find much.

 

The way to do that would be to go to google and type 'site:punternet.com <search query>', replace <search query> with the quotes. To get a more accurate search use " marks before and after the sentence, this will search for the exact phrase and not just the words.

 

In either case I think they are a bit misguided. There are serious prostitution and trafficking problems in this country and we must all stand against them and do what we can to fight them, but in their world they are equating escorting with prostitution, or at least implying so, which is not fair neither to the punters nor the girls.

 

I do think what we do in a way is the anti-thesis of prostitution, proof that prostitution doesn't have to exist in this day and age. But there are men who want cheap prostitutes and there are prostitutes being forced and trafficked, which is sad, and I hope they would direct their efforts towards that.

Yet another crappy pointless blog from someone with nothing much to say who is re barfing up the same style quotes that every other poor insulted to the very core anti barfs up every time the discover punternetland for the first time and are so completely outraged that they feel the need to reach for blog fame. Boring..at least the last blogger that did it actually had some rather witty text to go along with the quotes xx

Two things about this.

 

The Invisible Men writer seems only to be interested in one type of FR: The nasty type. FRs accounting for paid-for time spent in chats about how the SP can eat as much chocolate as she wants and still maintain her figure, clearly wouldn't be of much use to him. Neither would be stories of boundaries getting blurry, and naive young men falling in love with prostitutes. 

 

But also the FRs are presented in this weird heightened artistic way...silvery masks on black background with the grim text in the middle. It might as well be sharks in formaldehyde. It seems there just there to enhance the vicarious pleasure from the situation.

 

So, hypocritically,  the Invisible Men's readers get both pleasures. The get the pleasure of reading about it (just like the detail-hungry FR-reading onanist) and they get the pleasure of condemnation.

Yep, she failed to ban it and just gave it heaps of free advertising instead. I bet she's really kicking herself now.

 

With respect, I doubt it. As a politician, her main agenda will have been: firstly, to grab a few headlines for herself; and secondly, to reinforce her credentials with the "anti" brigade. Judged in those terms, her PN/Schwarzenegger/Terminator remarks were, as I recall, fairly effective.

 

Anyway, did she seriously imagine she could bully Schwarzenegger? Somehow I find that unlikely, because she doesn't strike me as that stupid and naive. But it played well to the gallery, got a cheer out of the party faithful and as I say, it did win her a few extra headlines. Job done.
