    Being a sex worker nowadays must not pay enough for school and that's why they're offering the scholarship. Then again, the total prize is $1500. That's like receiving a coupon or discount to a 4 year university.

    Guess it's better than nothing!

    $1500 is not s scholarship. It pays for a portion of one semester's books. It won't pay for 1 credit in a course on most campuses.

    It ain't much, but it's way better than anything else that's ever been offered to escorts in terms of continuing education.

    Can't a good whore make at least 10,000.00 a night?
    Also, do you think any of these guys can sit still long enough to even go to school?
    What would they study?
    Investment Banking?
    The economics of Porn?
    How to be thrifty in the day of drugs, sex & more sex???

    Yes, and that's why you won't find them on rentboy.

    Am I missing something? This indicates sex workers are smart people who do sex work so that they can pay there way through college and become, what, doctors? Duh, you cant remove video once its out in internet, CD land.

    Um, I have heard of heterosexual women doing topless or nude dancing or working at Hooters to put themselves through college, but gay men, porn and escorting ????????????? You might as well make a profession out of sex work until your looks and body disappear

    I guess I missed my calling, so much for a nerdy, dull science career icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif

    I think you forgot about our resident adult worker, dancerjack, who is more than just an RJ member and former adult worker, but also has a PhD and has proven time and time again that adult work IS a legitimate profession if someone takes it seriously. icon_wink.gif

    Edit: Oh and I used to own/operate an adult site, which I only shut down because it was too much work and I enjoy flying more. icon_wink.gif

    Did he earn his PhD? Last I heard he had a masters degree but didn't know he was continuing on to get a doctorate.

    I don't know what's with all the negative comments toward escorts and their levels of intelligence. It's an unfortunate stereotyping and it's plain mean.
    I could have read a few threads wrong...wouldn't be the first time...but I do know he's definitely broken the stereotype commonly associated with adult workers. And I've worked with many others who also break the stereotype. In short, the ones who break the stereotype are usually the ones who speak the least about their careers, which could explain why the stereotype exists to begin with (kinda like the effeminate gays who speak up loudly for OUR rights, while the less effeminate gays tend to speak up less - myself also being a guilty one on that count).

    Well, I know he has a masters degree at the very least. However, it's possible he could have gone on to earn a doctorate degree. I never see him anymore online.

    Yes, you'd be surprised by how many people have been adult workers in the past. I know plenty. Some do it as a means to an end while others might do it just because the money can be good. No need to judge either way.
    I only did it to bring attention to the fact that the "muscle worship fetish" isn't exclusive to big-muscled guys, but that the skinny/lean/defined guys are also in demand for flex shows, muscle worship, etc. just because they have good definition. Now that particular subculture of muscle worship has been renamed to "body worship" but it's the same thing with thinner guys. Mission accomplished. icon_cool.gif

    I was offered 8k a year scholarship and didn't even make a dent in this private college's tuition. I guess being a hooker isn't paying that well these days if you can't pay tuition with it.

    If you can't afford to do something correctly, you shouldn't do. That amount wouldn't even pay for a trade or vocational college.

    At this point, a degree really is only a piece of paper that will leave you with debt, so anyone out there pulling decent money as an escort is better off doing that than going to college.

    Buying a new car leaves most people in debt.
    Buying a new house leaves most people in debt.
    Obtaining a credit card leaves most people in debt.
    Starting a new business leaves most people in debt.

    Moral of the story: If you want to make life work to your advantage in a first world country, sometimes you have to be in debt.

    Oh, and working in retail leaves most people in debt because it doesn't pay enough to cover basic expenses without outside help. icon_wink.gif

    this is a fucking joke, right. A decent escort can easily make this much money in a weekend. A good one can make this on a week day.

    I actually made that much in an hour (yes, I honestly charged some old dude $1500 for an hour to touch my muscles while I flexed, with no orifice penetration) and he paid what I asked. It was a one-off thing, though, cause I had to get rent paid; and the landlord won't take "morality" for payment. icon_lol.gif

    So no, it's not a fucking joke. Most escorts don't have the cojones to ask someone for that kind of money. I, on the other hand, do. icon_wink.gif

    Well damn, that's the poor of desire right there. I mean the scholarship is a joke because escorts can make much more.

    Is this the thread where the prostitutes brag about how much money they make by selling their buttholes to the highest bidder? icon_rolleyes.gif

    While that might be true, one does have to be shrewd about how much debt they incur, because it can end up taking up a lot of earned income. Unfortunately, not everyone who gets a degree gets a great paying job or a job at all, so loan default can occur and then horrible credit.

    And no, retail doesn't pay a whole lot, but I have also taken up transcription/captioning and earn a good amount as an independent contractor. I'm not filthy rich, but I do get by without a whole lot of debt.

    $1500 isnt alot, but every little bit helps. I'm not going to discourage people from bettering themselves by wanting an education. Just choose a career that has prospects which makes it worthwhile to be in temporary debt for future earnings. I've always felt bad for people who thought the only they have of worth is their bodies. It's one thing if you rentboy yourself out because you enjoy it, it's another thing if you do it out of desperation or because you lack opportunity to do better.

    Don't be silly. People paid me to suck on my big dick or feel me flex.

    A jealous bottom who couldn't sell his tired hole even if his life depended on it is not an attractive thing.



    Haha. The prostitute is judging me. Hahaha. And sweetie....one doesn't contract HIV from "flexing." That's a riot! icon_lol.gif And I'd like to see who paid to touch you. Oh, let me guess.....they were all super hot guys paying you, right? But thanks for telling us you're a prostitute. Explains so much about your bitter attitude. Thanks for the insight! icon_biggrin.gif

    I used to make $1500 a night for an eight hour period and $2400 for a weekend.

    Wait a minute - you mean all those straight teenagers opening "innocuous" PayPal flex sites aren't fully funding their college educations and 401K's?

    Rentboy.com needs a better PR management agency.

    Sure, every little bit helps. But starting a publicity campaign over a USD 1.5k grant is simply cheap. Very cheap!
