Warning: As you can tell by the title of this blog post, there may be mature talk in here! Proceed with caution!
Well, first of all - Hi to everyone who didn't just close this! I know, it's a bit of an interesting read and a bit (er, well a lot) mature compared to what we normally have, but I promise we're going to keep it (mostly) clean and 100% professional! There will be adult terms used, but there will be no pictures and no vulgar words!
Maybe it's not the same for me. The truth is, I grew up knowing a few people who worked in the sex trade industry and I got to see what that was like. I quickly learned (well, once I was old enough to actually understand what was going on) that, more than anything, working in the sex trade is just like working at any other job - it's a job. One that should be handled and treated with respect - somehow, it just seems fitting that I would find this career option when I'm older.
The truth is, being an er, "adult entertainment" reviewer, more than anything, is a great conversation starter! As I'm sure you can see why. Lot's of people ask me two questions, and those two questions are what I'm going to be talking about.
One: How did you get into that?!
Well, truth is, it's not quite as exciting as you would think. I saw a job listing for it and I applied. That's right - there are job listings out there for this kind of thing. I've only been doing it for a little while now, but it's been quiet the learning experience!
Two: What's it like?!
Again, truthfully... it's not quite as exciting as you'd think. When I said above that it's been a learning experience I didn't mean...er, by watching any movies! What I meant was by blogging. It's taught me a lot about HTML, and even doing interviews/reaching out to people, in general. For me, it all depends on the month. The truth is, I get a couple assignments a month and I finish them as quickly as I can. That's really all there is to it. Is it hot? Sure - depending on the assignment I get! Is it a fun job? For sure! I get to be writing for a living! And it has been a huge learning experience for me, which to me is the most important thing. It's also given me a bit of an inside look (uh, pun not intended) at something that I never would have paid any attention to.
I never watched any adult content growing up. Never really was my cup of tea, honestly not that I have anything against it. But that is actually a huge benefit for me with the job that I have now. It's allowed me to approach this professionally - like I would any other job.
