Been Pm'd About 'confidential' Research

34 posts in this topic

Received a PM from Charlie2014 asking if I would contact her (Charlotte) to discuss why I use escorts. It is apparently for an upcoming BBC programme called Why Pay for Sex? and she was interested in a comment I'd made on a previous thread.

 

Just wondered if anyone else had received a similar request?

Yes I and probably many of us have had messages and emails from Charlie.

 

i just ignored mine.

 

How many more programmes are going to be made on this subject.  It is becoming boring.

I think it might be useful if Charlotte would pm myself or one of the other mods so we can verify who she is before anyone makes the 

decision to talk to her.

I'm unsure; part of me, if genuine confidentiality could be guaranteed, wouldn't mind talking about my experiences and motivations. Much of if, from my perspective, is concerned with wider aspects of society and pressures of modern living.

 

But, even as a single guy, I'd never take the risk.

I get pissed off by people doing surveys and, depending on how grumpy I feel, either refuse point blank to answer any questions or give them the sort of answers they don't want to hear.

 

For example, I was once asked to take part in a survey by animal rights activists.

 

Their first question was did I agree that testing on animals should be banned. Absolutely, I replied, the testing should be done on dickheads like you.

 

To my immense surprise (not!) they didn't ask any further questions.

So you're in a situation ( for whatever reason  ! ) that you must book a paid sex date, say 3 hours. What type of person do you book and how would you like the booking to pan out ?

Yes, I got one from her saying that she was interested because I was a widower. I have told her that I am not prepared to talk to her over the phone, as she wants, but will answer any questions by pm. (gives me time to consider my answers and not say anything I might regret - in view of our experiences with previous "researchers") I also suggested she read Dr Teela Sanders book "Paying For Pleasure: Men Who Buy Sex". She said she would do so as she hadn't heard of it and would try to talk to Dr Sanders who is, of course, a Reader in Sociology at Leeds University and much respected on here.

 

I have heard nothing more from "Charlotte" (she doesn't give her surname) but whether that is because I wouldn't speak to her on the phone or because she is too busy reading the book! :)

 

I would agree with Laura Lee's suggestion that nobody speaks to Charlotte until she has contacted Laura or one of the other mods and been verified by them.

She would do well reading Sheron Boyles book. 'Working girls and their men'.

I did not receive a message via here from Charlie..... it could have been my AW email..... will check .... I often keep obscure emails in case the sender gets in touch again......

 

..... but I do remember posting somewhere about it.

This thread maybe?

 

I enjoyed answering some questions anonymously about why I use escorts, the legalities of it etc. from a woman who posted in the Glasgow section, who was doing research on a study for her university degree. It was very interesting, though I wouldn't be as keen chatting to someone over the phone who was making a TV show.

Yes.  See my post (#36) on that thread.

 

Thank you for searching it out!

Not received an PM! Am more than a little worried about the person being real... Find it all very dubious.. All done in the shadows and not out in the open!

So clearly the researcher is not the same "Charlie" since  ours is female and is Charlotte with no mention of Minnow Films but is for a programme on Channel 4. Interestingly the e-mail address is bb.co.uk

Selectively choosing participants in this way does not conform to any established social research methodology.  Selection procedures are subject to a stringent regulatory framework, and firing off PMs on an internet forum to recruit participants would never satisfy an ethics committee or get research governance approval.

 

Be cautious about what you reveal and establish the identity of the person to whom you make any disclosure.

I wonder if whatever a guy would say will get distorted and twisted as it got in the past.  Then be stereotyped, categorised and classed as inferior to others who cannot comprehend the big picture of the world we live in and our needs that evolved and took us to different levels not understood by those who think they know better than anyone......... anyway.  Why bother?
