Hi everybody,

So, I'm a sex worker (BDSM Mistress) in the UK and I'm really fascinated with Bitcoin at the moment - particularly in exploring and building the economy for creating picture and video content for BTC, either tips or fixed rates.  I'm also very interested in sex workers who accept BTC at point of sale.

At the moment the Bitcoin economy is quite new, and while some people may have problems with it, sex work is indeed among the oldest professions Smiley I would love to start a thread or even a sub-group here for sex workers interested in Bitcoin.  By sharing our stories and helping each other get set up for using Bitcoin in business, we are indeed expanding the Bitcoin economy and strengthening Bitcoin as a currency, even if we are a bit controversial Wink

I would also love to start a group in the Marketplace - Services section for camming/naughty pictures/other forms of sex work for Bitcoin, where customers and providers can benefit from the robust community and reputation system here.

I'm very aware that there are problems with regards to legality - my work is legal in the UK, where I am based, and I comply with all UK laws.  There's also the very important cultural and social issue of keeping racy content in the forum in places where people want to see it and it's appropriate.  I do think that the group for sex workers is important - I know getting set up for Bitcoin online and screening Bitcoin clients has its own particular challenges for sex workers, and the forum could be very useful for us.

That's why I decided to start a conversation here in Meta - what do people think?

Thanks all, I am finding this a very positive and helpful forum thus far Smiley

As long as what you're doing is legal where you are, you should be good to go!

That's a great idea, I suppose it will increase security of both provider and consumer to not hold physical money.

We will try to help if we can  Wink

Thanks everyone!

I guess what it is that I'm possibly looking for for the sex work services is what seems to be called a 'child board,' in the Marketplace - Services board; it would be good to put a sticky there saying that you have to be over the legal age in your country of residence to view the board, and it wouldn't be offensive to other readers.  Who is the best person to ask about setting something like this up?

You should be ok just putting NSFW in your title, and maybe putting a brief disclaimer or something like that, "If you are not the age of majority of your country, please do not view this thread" or something like that.

I doubt anyone here would be too upset if you didn't, however if you just want to make sure you are doing things officially I guess its not a bad idea.

Thanks Salty!

I think I will draft up a post for a thread, and then let folks on relevant sex work forums know about it.  Do threads expire after a certain time period?

Asking someone to be over the legal age to view the board when they had already viewed it?
Also the type of services that you offer are a very small minority among the overall listings so it's very likely an average forum user looking for something specific won't even see it.

If you are planning on hotlinking to sexually explicit images please add a [NSFW] tag to the title of your topic. If you're only planning on linking to such images adding "NSFW" before the link should suffice.

Personally....
No.

Edit: It's OK to do it in specific subfora, but not all over the place, please.
