    spying on the boy's

    It sounds like you really miss the BIZ and this is a way to stay involved. It is like any relationship, you vent to your friends but you still love your partner. It is just a place for men to express themselves and maybe you should start a women only site (wait and see what is said on that !!!

    see: http://www.internetvalley.com/intval1.html

    how were spelling, punctuation, grammar, paragraphing, etc., pre-Prodigy?

    what i would find interesting is a history of cyberscorting. i have read, elsewhere, other escorts thanking DoD for being the pioneer in this area. but, that may be a localized phenomenon.

    oh, justme, i came upon an unfamiliar word yesterday: "eldritch."

    Is this the correct place to point out that the first people with 'net access were the military?

    Although, I agree that the level of discourse on-line took a major hit in '95 when Prodigy hit the scene.

    ridiculous.

    I'm sorry, but I won't say how I got access to JAG. There are some VERY smart guys over there, and I think it would be a fun (and fair) game for them to catch me.

    There's not much going on over there, lately. $120 is pretty steep, and I think that's put a huge dent in their membership.

    Ahhh...remember the good old days when only bright people had Internet access? Clients who'd heard about you from review sites were almost always good.

    I used to print out reviews and take them to the Golden Gypsy to share with all the other girls. They were shocked and amazed.

    if you hire a lawyer, in part, for her time and companionship, you certainly should care about her personal warmth. if, on the other hand, you are only interested in having sex with your lawyer, why are you paying 'r(i)diculously high rates' to her?

    it is well known that only a small percentage of the nonprosecutorial bar could make a living by exclusively advocating impartial truth. in other words, in most cases, a defense attorney (civil or criminal) is a 'liar 4 hire'.

    my point is: a 'liar 4 hire' is not all that is interesting or worthwhile about the attorney/client relationship. some might think that it is; but, i don't -- and perhaps you would agree. if lawyers can be more than the sum of their economic calculations, why can't escorts?

    btw, please respond by substituting 'therapist' for 'lawyer', which i think is a far more relevant analogy than lawyer, bartender, cab driver, etc ;). also btw, from what i read, mainstream therapy, like mainstream 'romance', is rarely given away for free.

    Stanley,
    There's almost no reviews here. Do you mean UG board members write these "misleading reviews" here, or other places, to get these discounts? If here, I'd be curious for you to point them out ( should be easy to find amoung the what, 6 reviews so far ? ).

    Sometimes UG members write misleading reviews in order to get a discount. Do you expect to find ethics on these boards?

    Re: Questions for KS

    sometimes jag members give their password and id to escorts. one gave his to 5 different escorts, including if i recall correctly, to Adriana w/1 Neuron -- with much ensuing folly as a consequence thereto ;).

    fake reviews or not, you still need to pony up $120 to get full access.............





    well......in most cases.

    Questions for KS

    I'm surprised nobody has asked yet---are you paying the $120 a year for a JAG membership, or did you get in with fake reviews?

    If you used fake reviews, how did you decide who to review, since you can't review KS any more?

    Just curious about how people do these things; I've always assumed plenty of providers were listening in!

    KS - Thanks...

    I disagree strongly with the notion of predestined happiness. BUt then I disagree strongly with the notion of predetermination in general.

    But of course it occurs to me that we may be using slightly different flavors of the term happiness. Perhaps I should be more precise, but I don't think I'll start here...

    I never meant to imply that the business itself would cause you to be 'unhappy', I more wanted to know if its net effect on your life was one of added or reduced happiness. Clearly (I think), this is a difficult question as it imvolves several different aspects to consider. However, I think I can kinda glean from your response the more relevant factors.

    I think I should remember, too, that in some senses I've asked you to compare apples and oranges. Had you been able to work the kind of job that you are currently occupied with and attended to studies at Bezerkly then maybe you would have chosen a different path. However, what I see is that escorting enabled you to do several things that you would not have been able to do had you, say, interned at an insurance agency. Some oi those things are grounded in materialism, while others seem to be somewhat more 'noble'. And it's this apples and oranges comparison which allows you to say that you wouldn't be happy right now doing what you were doing - allowing, of course, for personal development between when you were escorting and now.

    If you want you can look up an old thread on JAG which was titled something like, 'Why do they do it?' I don't even remember if I ever posted to it, but over the couple years of online hobby discourse I've given it some thought. I've always felt that materialism often played some role in the decision and that's why I jumped at your quote. Actually, there are hints in some of my other ideas in your response, but in appreciation of your honesty I'll leave you alone (for now).

    Let me throw some fluff (hopefully without being accused of imitation)...

    I felt poor growing up - I can't tell you how much my esteem for you rose by your use of 'felt' rather than 'was'.

    P.S. - Not that anyone cares, but my desire to understand the motivation of escorts (not that there is any model that applies universally) is that I think it'ss get me a little closer to understanding my own decisions in all of this.

    GC - I'll answer that question in two ways:

    When I'm talking to a lawyer on a professional basis, I want him to be completely attentive to my legal needs without any need for personal warmth or conversation (that he undoubtedly will bill me for at his rediculously high rates).

    It is rediculous to suppose that just because I believe that materialism plays a (relatively high?) role in the career decisions of both escorts and lawyers that I might not understand that there are other motivations which might differ between the two and that these motivations might make some difference as to how I feel about escorts and lawyers.

    good thing you didn't ask me this question......


    i happen to rank escorts way above lawyers......but then again i rate lawyers somewhere between car thieves and crack dealers.....


    well not all of them obviously......but divorce lawyers and litigation lawyers, definitely lower that a car thief.

    Originally posted by justme: To be clear, I am quite aware that the effects of materialism can be felt in other discipline choices, say law....

    then does your view of lawyers differ significanty from your view of escorts? and, if so, why?

    Don't Worry, Phantom!

    We're just joking around. He was just fooling around a bit on JAG - maybe trying to goad me into posting there - and I was teasing him.

    He can talk to me directly here. As can everybody. Sorry If I don't email everyone who asks me to - I just pop in real quick when I've got a minute at work. Email would just be too much.
