I always have to giggle at the insecurity of the question posed. I'm also entertained by those who are threatened by the whole thing.
1. If you're hot enough, interesting enough, smart enough, and cool enough, that an ultra-hot guy wants to call you his bud, you must be doing something RIGHT! Kudos to you! Remember, he / she chose you, and could have chosen others.
2. If you can get someone to buy what most folks can't beg to give away, then you have something going. You would do well do learn from that. People don't just dumbly throw money around.
Appearance (muscle, fitness level, charisma) are all attractive at the primal level. Some refuse to admit that, but, that is part of the human condition.
Daily I'm inundated by folks who are skinny, fat, ugly, out-of-shape, etc., who get all cranky when I don't share their attraction. Muscles, smarts, etc., as I said attract folks at a primal level. So called straight guys give me offers a couple of times a week.
Adult entertainment (be it dancing, or porn) is just what it is: entertainment. Folks go have one night stands all the time, and seem to hold that to a different standard.
I said I'd never do porn, despite receiving frequent offers, and I never have, but, I did work for U.S. Male, and had a blast doing it.
I know, from where I sit, I would never want a boyfriend / girlfriend threatened by looks / occupation. That sort of insecurity is a major turnoff. Like a pictureless, folks that don't like themselves just don't get very far with me.
I think it's sad that those that would condemn being an escort, or being a dancer, are the first to blast dic pics all over The Cloud.
If you can get someone to pay you for something most folks can't give away, good for you!
Double standards abound in society. This is yet another.
