My name is Sugar Vegas…and it’s been exactly 2 years since my last confession. Yes, that’s what it feels like peeps, hitting this much neglected blog again for the first time since fall 2017. But, there’s a time for everything and I think the time to blog has come again, at least for me.
So, what has prompted me to write again? Hm a number of things actually – one or two of them, regarding strip clubs in SL. Like: how they are run, how people behave, what is expected of guests, and so on.
Some might have noted that the profiles of some very prominent SL house madams and escort’s have developed a slightly bitter or angry edge in their self presentations. Words like “not tipping is disrespectful” or “talking to girls without tipping is a waste of time” and some more direct. So now, we have a sex business world of “pay-up fucker, or else!”?
But – why all this bitterness? I mean, sex and flirting in an adult club is supposed to be fun and attractive, not a battleground. As far as I remember that is what it used to be, and the tippage was also rather good. OK, so I completely agree with the essential messages. People really need to start respecting sex workers everywhere, also in a virtual world. Now I am also wondering how these bitter sounding messages might affect potential guests or customers. If it means people actually take the advice and start respecting sex workers it’s great. Does it make punters pay up? Frighten the cheap bastards enough to make them stop wasting girls time? Or – does it scare people away? Turn potential clients off completely? Then sending out this types of messages have a total opposite effect of what was intended. I really cannot say which of these are correct, and it would be interesting to hear what some of the most popular club owners and Madams in SL have to say about it.
It has often been said mainstream strip clubs are cultural twilight zones where nasty guys who may not be so hot with the ladies in the regular world can get pretty girls for fight for their attention because of tips. Personally, I have always preferred to regard myself a courtesan rather tan hooker, and the clubs a demimonde of the more elegant sort – but damn, those places are hard to find. This means, i have done my far share of work in the before mentioned twilight zone. And yes, I have had my share of nasties.
Are strip clubs the playground for assholes and losers who wants to punish pretty girls? Girls they would never have a chance with in any other place? Working in an SL strip Club has at times made me more miserable than i thought possible in a virtual world. But – it has at times also made me very happy, not to mention rich. Because yes, there are generous people, and there are people who love the dynamics of erotic RP and who do respect what a courtesan is, what she does and how to deal with her. I would be very interested to hear if anybody else have opinions about this.
