Every now and then I see the term 'Hobby Hooker' mentioned in AF land.
So what is your understanding of this term?
To me it signifies someone who is in the industry part time, for the cash (sometimes because they need to), with some possible lack of understanding as to issues and service expectations of the industry.
In recent years I have known three ladies who I class as 'hobby' workers. The first appeared to be a recently separated solo mother who was using the income to set up her new household. She would bring home baking to bookings and text between bookings. Once I got to know her I found out differently, but by then she was inextricably linked into my personal life and extrication was time consuming and difficult.
The second advertised in the local paper. I called and she sounded good although her prices were low, however two minutes after meeting her I began to suspect an emotional issue under medication so I paid her fee and requested only a massage. During the massage she told me she had been a mistress to a married man for several years, he had helped her out financially, and she was looking for a replacement. No thanks.
The last one was a good fun lady who admitted her sex drive was much higher than her partners, so she worked to satisfy herself as well as make some extra cash. She was fun to be with, extended time when she could, but knew too many people I did so I stopped seeing her.
And this last week I have engaged with two ladies on social media. One sent me a link to a web page where she lists cum in mouth and creampie as favorite activities (no thanks). The other says she has previously worked, is looking for extra cash and wants $100 an hour plus issued an invite to her own home. Her 'when would you like to see me' messages have a suggestion of desperation. I am also very wary of being approached in this way on social media, even if it was by way of 1 on 1 chat each time. (I am also perplexed as to what started these conversations as I have kept my punting activities right out of this particular media. It has been suggested by someone else that they too have had unsolicited offers made by at least one of these ladies. Bad form really).
So, what are your understandings of the term "Hobby Hooker"?
