SESTA: This is the fault of SW clients not being publicaly open about participation in the Hobby. Disapproval by those we love, embarrassment or religious taboo have caused good men to look away from the results from our inaction & speaking up.
I came out of the “Monger Closet” this week. With my adult children, friends & of course the lady in my life. Reactions ranged from surprise, disapproval & even admiration. NOT ONE rejected me.
Providers should NOT have to pay for our fears. Man up.
Good for you mate. You’re a better man than I. Not quite there yet.
@mr_enigma good for you man, maybe one day I'll do the same and live life like a open book.
@mr_enigma I’m so happy you had a generally positive experience and chose to be open about your life. Bravo to you. May more follow your example ❤️
@mr_enigma My family and close friends know about my "hobby" too, but if my employer found out I would very likely be fired.
Yeah I'll try to man up. I'll get back to you on that one 🤣🤣🤣
@mr_enigma LOVE THIS!
@mr_enigma Came out?! Meaning you told your family about your hobby? Yikes
Yes... it wasn’t easy, but once it was done I felt amazing. Reactions were varied, but no one hated me or became self righteous. “Just Be careful” was the go to response as the conversations ended. Honestly I didn’t know what to expect, but that wasn’t it.
@mr_enigma Good for you. Did you tell them you were going to continue or that you had stopped?
I told them I continue and that it makes my life a better place. The women are amazing! My Oldest daughter though it was crazy for me to think I needed to pay for a woman, as I am not an unattractive man. I told her I walk with leg braces and a cane so who wants to become involved with that on a regular basis? Besides, I am in an open relationship and why the hell not enjoy everything on the menu??? Life is short!
@mr_enigma wow hats off to you sir! You helped me open my mind even further. Completely agree and I’m very happy for you! 🙌🏽
Everyone who knows me, knows I'm for free speech, human rights, and an open internet.
I didn't know about fosta/sosta till it was too late.
I've done what I can. Only certain family members know I'm a hobbiest. Most friends know.
@mr_enigma you deserve a bj for this 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
Thank you, but I really should have spoke up sooner. The amazing thing is I no longer worry about being discovered by those who know me. My open admission allowed for open acceptance from others. Living with paranoia is unhealthy and discovery of a deception leads to destroyed relationships. Now the bitter medicine has been taken... it wasn’t all that bad really after all.
@mr_enigma I’m inspired. I wish I was as brave as you
