...which is why I punt...

But seriously, I find it really weird that some SPs on UKE constantly provide media which makes them potentially identifiable to all and sundry*. As punters we take vigourous efforts to protect our ID (e.g. punting phone). Notwithstanding the fact that many of us are married/in relationships, I'm sure that single punters are just as careful, given the social stigma attached to our hobby.

Does it no longer work the other way? Pretty much all the WGs I've ever seen have by and large advised that they became WGs as a "lifestyle choice", and that's great, but is it a "lifestyle choice" they'd be happy for friends and family to discover? Hence my bewilderment at why some SPs show (so many) face pics...  :unknown:

* yes, I appreciate that UKE is basically a shop window for SPs

They don't seem to realise that once a face pics out there in the ether it's there forever.
Post Reports here are full of request from SP's asking for pics to be removed.

I think it's the use of UKE as an almost alternative to instagram that I find weird. Twitter is another one, particularly amongst pro-dommes.

When I was younger the only 2 people in the "national consciousness" as SPs were Cynthia Payne and Lindi St. Clair (Miss Whiplash), and I suppose it could be considered gutsy to go public, but they were pretty much the exception.

You're asking punters to tell you how Sex Workers think and why they show face pics, I for one have no idea. Maybe start a 'question for escorts' thread on UKE and ask the ones that do it for a definitive answer.  :unknown:

Its up to a WG to post what she wants, she is an adult responsible for herself. If smart and she doesn't wish to show her face she doesn't do so including in PGs for cash, those pics can be shared and get all over the net in reality.

As to showing face pics some WGs have been doing so for years, its nothing new, on A/W for example, now some also do so on UKE, unlike you I don't find it at all weird. Its called marketing oneself.

Well unlike Twatter, UKE IS a punting forum so I see it as obvious some WGs are going to use it to sell themselves to punters, and its one thing admin created UKE for, for WGs to be able to do so, on their instead of selling themselves touting for business on here.

Up to them what they do after a risk assessment.  Some may be  out to family others not.

I know some have regretted posting them while pandering to the fluffy mob.

Sure that would be an interesting thread. Many forget uke is a useful resource and entertainment platform.

You are kidding right ? Most of these women go into sex work because they are too dim to stack shelves at Tesco's !!

"Risk assessment" ? Ha fucking ha  :unknown:

They should be doing so, not anyone's fault but theirs if they don't.

A link in case any Sex Workers are reading and not familiar with the term.

There's a good number of punters who say "if no face picture, no punt". So that may have a bearing on why some WGs do show their faces.
As we know, a significant number, perhaps the majority do not. (My own experience is around 50/50 as on balance I'm keen to 'see before purchase').

Were I a woman, say single, in need of cash, with a bit of a libido, a fit body and so forth and confident enough about my surrounding neighbourhood and family to think that discovery would not risk things she values then a face photo might be on offer.

A single mum I've seen three times recently in Chester has a wad of face pictures on AW and gets good business. It's entirely possible that a neighbour will at some stage become aware of what is taking place but I think her attitude is that she is working to maintain a decent standard of life for herself and her juvenile children and is not causing clamour in the street nor indeed parking issues. So far push hasn't come to shove. But I'm sure this doughty woman will prevail over all issues.

What, you mean you actually look at the mantelpiece whilst stoking the fire.  :D

Seriously, though, there's one WG on my hot list (not seen yet) who uses pixelation/blurring, and I'm pretty sure from other reviews that she's unlikely to be a munter...

I think the main thrust of the query is that I'm late middle aged and just don't understand the whole social media "let's share everything" mentality

Oh yes. I can't fuck an ugly woman!

I understand where you are coming from faggins. I'm 70. The social media thing is a tits rat-run for me.

I look at AdultWork. I identify a good fuck. I pay the money. I fuck. Because I value the good providers I may report. Sometimes my language may be seen as fluffy. This does not indicate my forward-looking appraisal. And far completely does it indicate MYviews aside those of my own of very earlier days.

This

Sadly, $uckerberg's college project has indoctrinated enough people that now, privacy is an alien concept.
Particularly to the young 'digital natives'
(Digital Native/ Digital Immigrant / Digital Refugee is an age and attitude thing)

Also I expect its like Pringles; 'once you pop - you just can't stop'
as in, post one face pic and you may as well post 101

And, as said above, some of em just don't give a shit  :wackogirl:

I've always shown my face my family and friends know what I do , yes it's a risk for future life like new partner etc but I think it's one of the reasons I'm busy so there are no risk factors

I think you are calling a kettle "black-bottom." 

A sex worker can clear the same after tax income as a well paid senior white collar executive; ten times the average national income and an absolute fortune in the context of what they can earn at home. 

One of my regulars lives where she works (no overhead, cash in hand, close to 100% margin at £120 per hour) and must be clearing 2-3k per week.  Do the math; that is the equivalent to an annual salary of £300k PAYE.

FOS how much do you earn?  And you're calling them stupid?  :D

To the OP,  it looks to me like there is a trend of WG's being less willing to publish face pics on profiles and those that have published subsequently trying to remove them.

Well £300k is more than my annual income to be sure.

Then again, I don't put myself in daioy danger of violence and nasty diseases. Nor do I have to have sex with people I find physically repulsive.

My point stands I think - it is more than possible to have a golden pussy and shit for brains...

Social media is a great way to sell ones self in normal day to day life but not ideal as such for selling sexual services.

UKE is almost like a social media platform for that very purpose. Infact it sometimes feels as if it is just that. I imagine that many of the girls on there feel confident to show their faces as it's niche market and of little interest to the general public. Wether that is the case or not? I don't know.

Another factor is you give your availability for a week or more so that guys can plan a booking in advance which is some thing that like to do.

What is it you 'just don't get.......'?

From what I've concluded, all there is here for you to be so deeply perturbed about is a (topically relevant, to be fair) tautological hamster wheel, consisting of neutered statements which by their very composition, can fall, infinitely and regressionally into the into 'possible' within which, really, almost any other tautological hamster wheels could be constructed; just chose your subject; bee keeping, baking forum, anal beading, fisting, pvc, dogging and so on and so and and so on and on and on................
