I tried to make my relationship work while my GF sells nudes but I just can’t do it anymore.

OMG yes. I had to get drunk sometimes to even justify some of the things I was requested to do. And I wasn't even being asked to do anything crazy but in order to enjoy it, I had to be drunk. It was sad it had to be that way.

Indeed. A lot of people think it's all roses and glamour... when really it can be pretty dark in reality.

People think sex work is roses and glamor? Guy here that in no world or reality ever felt the girls doing that for money really truly enjoyed any of it but the money. And for some, you can almost tell that it’s all they have.

More or less what I was referring to by "a lot of people" is women that excitedly and usually blindly try to or get into this type of work. I have had many conversations with women that had absolutely ZERO idea of what it really entails. Apologies for not being clear enough.

Edit: spelling and all that good stuff.

Gotcha, sometimes being naive is a blessing. But it’s surprising when one goes into a career without doing some dd first. Doesn’t make it less true though.

No I agree. Just clarifying a bit there. I was incredibly relieved when I found a job I could actually stand for the most part after I quit doing that. I didn't do it full time or anything, was mostly keeping me afloat while searching, but I was one of the naive ones and found out the hard way, lol.
