Meet Candice, a small business owner who travels a lot. “My dream was to see the world and write about it. My family could not afford to send me to the next town let alone across the world. When a friend told me how she was making money by sexting strangers, I wanted in.”
“I sometimes do it for free, I needed money to travel and decided it was worth a shot. I am glad that I took the risk. Now, I get to travel the world anytime I want and do it all in first class. Yes, I have actually been on a call in the Airplane,” she says as if she knew I was about to ask.
Of course, I was.
What I learned that day was that many people are making money this way. Each person has his or her own reasons for doing so, but one thing they all have in common is they make a lot of money and love their job. Who am I to judge? I must admit, I was curious.
According to Patrick Roy from Arousr,”You can make a lot of money sexting if you commit to it. Sexting is mobile, so you can take the job with you. Hosts (as they are referred to) chat on buses, planes, trains and just about anywhere. With the money they earn, they pay for studies, buy luxury items and even cover unexpected expenses.”
As if to drive the point home, he directs me to a recent article in Your Tango.
According to Candice, Travelling and Sexting go hand in hand!
She explains,”Generally speaking, people use mobile chat apps to screen potential dates. It is not that hard to understand how this comes in handy when you travel.
Would you want your sister, mother or friend to give their real phone number to a complete stranger? Especially, while they are traveling in a foreign country?
Let’s face it, if you meet your soulmate on a cruise to Alaska, you might want to get to know them before jumping in.”
What makes chat apps so appealing for travelers?
For women, it is the safety factor. It makes them feel more comfortable when connecting with strangers. The discretion and promiscuity are what seems to drives men to use them. And, couples use them for communication, intimacy, and building trust when apart.
Moreover, adults can use these apps to investigate a broader pool of potential mates. It’s worldwide dating in the palm of your hand.
Other, more obvious reasons seem to be:
- They are a safe and discreet way to get to know someone before proceeding to the next step.
- Sexting provides a quick and easy way to engage in casual sex.
- They are often used for sexual exploration purposes.
- Sexting offers a more intimate and personal connection and is a good way to stay in touch with loved ones.
While it is not for everyone, people like Candice are living their dreams doing nothing more than sending a few sexy text messages to strangers. Doesn’t sound like such a bad idea now does it?
