Open Minded

I noticed that the phrase open minded, keeps cropping up on lots of indies profiles lately, excuse my ignorance but what does it mean.

Nothing is - potentially - off the menu?

That would be my interpretation. Others might suggest it means they welcome kinky fuckers - that might be true - but I would suggest 'broad minded' is a better description for the latter.

Some agencies that don't want to list specific services for fear of falling foul of the law about controlling prostitution for gain use "open-minded" as a codeword to mean the lady offers OWO.  However, as the term is mostly used it means nothing at all: it is an empty phrase that allows the punter to project his desires on to it without actually committing the WG to anything.

It's just a marketing ploy to fool unsuspecting punters! One would think the term "open minded" means all the trimmings are on the menu (OWO, etc), but in reality it means jack shit, I have seen plenty of profiles on agency sites and indie websites that advertise the term, but then seen the same girls profile on AdultWork and surprise surprise, she doesn't have french kissing or OWO on her enjoys list, clearly not "open minded".

I used to receive enquiries from guys asking if I was "open minded", this was usually carte blanche for him to go on and on about his often very twisted fantasy in great detail.

+1 I think thats sums it up quite concisely. If I see this on a profile it means an SP will at least be open to trying new stuff and discussing kinks.

I would say it meant that your open to suggestion, whereas broad minded means your likely to be open to pushing boundaries.

This is an interesting difference. I think Holly is right but had not considered the difference before.

Its a ridiculous notion to say that someone describing themselves as "open minded" means nothing is off the menu. It may mean that from some but I think its just a general term that escorts us to imply that they offer a lot of services and are open to suggestions even if something isn't listed on their profiles anywhere. It doesnt mean a guaranteed yes to a strange request but it means that they are open to suggestions within their personal reason.

 

To those who think it means you can involve shit puke snot and bb anal, seriously, imagination overdrive

As far as this industry and marketing go I think open minded, broad minded and adventurous all pretty much mean the same thing x

I actually use the words 'open minded' on my personal website. Describing myself as 'open minded' means nothing shocks me & gents can open up to me with their deepest desires without feeling I'm going to judge them.

New to the board so 'hello' everyone!

Love

I prefer to call a spade a spade and offer concisely what I do.It gets abit confusing I think otherwise.

It's funny how two simple words can mean such different things to different people.

True in some contexts but not universally true which is why both phrases can deceive.

In my opinion, it's purely a marketing term, up there with GFE, PSE, BBW and so on.
