Anyone else feel like this is true? I know it's not a hard and fast rule, but god damn, does it feel like it some days!
As people who know me are aware, I'm a serious night owl, often not going to sleep until after 6 in the morning. Getting me to wake up early for anything short of the apocalypse is a big deal. I woke up early today to take a morning cam appointment with a nice kinky guy I spent a lot of time with on cam last week. I told him I don't normally do camming early in the day, that I don't like mornings, but he politely begged, so I decided to make an exception for a well-paying pervert who is into things I genuinely like. What happened? 5 minutes before our scheduled appointment, he emailed to let me know he's busy but will try to be able to see me later some time.
I once had another kinky guy who was a great client when I could catch him (he even once flew me to his city for an in-person fetish session), but he was such a monumentally irritating flake and time-waster, I stopped even trying. It wasn't worth all the following up with him to get the money. (I spoke to another sex worker who'd had the exact same experience with him. Maybe his real kink was getting us to chase him?)
I have many other examples of guys who popped in on cam, spent a bunch of money, bought me gifts, had truly fun shows with me, the promised me the world, and then disappeared. If you don't want to see me again, I get it - variety is the spice of life - but don't make a an appointment in the morning after I told you I don't like doing that and then blow me off after I dragged myself out of bed for you.
Time-wasting on the part of clients is one of the top sex worker pet peeves. If you're one of my readers who's a client/customer, please don't pull this shit on us. If you wouldn't stand up your accountant, your lawyer, your doctor, your boss, or your wife, don't do it to sex workers.
Arg. Getting only a few hours of sleep basically ruins my whole day, and I don't even have anything to show for it. Maybe I'll go and see if I can fall asleep again, otherwise I won't make it past 8pm or so, when the real cam show clients start showing up.
