after my initial inquiry as to who he was and what was his story "john, 40, single" (very articulate this one), he ricocheted the questions. not wanting to bother with bullshit but at the same time recognizing a potential client, i said i was 22, a student, a sex educator, and a whore. which lead to this clever banter:
brillig3: r u practicing what u teach?
the_educated_slut: i get paid for both
brillig3: paid for sex?
the_educated_slut: yes sir, i believe that's the definition of a whore
brillig3: so a slut is the same as a whore?
the_educated_slut: a slut is someone proud of their sexual agency
the_educated_slut: a whore is someone who utilizes their sexuality in a system of mutual exchange
the_educated_slut: for example sex for money or sex for a job
brillig3: i thought someone who got paid for sex is a prostitute
the_educated_slut: a prostitute is one type of a whore
brillig3: so u do sex for a job?
the_educated_slut: one of several
brillig3: or sex for money
the_educated_slut: by "sex for a job" i meant someone who has sex with someone in exchange for employment, ex. casting couch
the_educated_slut: i do not engage in this type of whoring
the_educated_slut: i do have sex for money and also lead personal educational workshops with a great deal of intimacy
the_educated_slut: and i do some fetish work
brillig3: so its mostly for couples?
the_educated_slut: but i have legit jobs too
the_educated_slut: no, primarily for men
the_educated_slut: although often the goal is to benefit their female (or male) partners
the_educated_slut: anyways, got to go
so, the boy is intrigued, has added me to his list. i think as long as i can restrict him to tastes but no satisfying bites i may be able to wrangle some cash money out of the situation. could be an interesting new venue. especially since aff certainly seems a bust.
