    EDIT: Sorry this thread is such a mess. Today, I can't seem to order or form paragraphs correctly for some reason. Basically, I wanted to share the story about the cafe, ask why the word was censored, ask about what others think of the marketing sids, and give my two cents.

    Hey BHW,

    I've been reading this article on independent.co.uk which talks about a coffee and fellatio shop opening up in London. For about 60 pounds, or 90 USD, you can order a coffee and receive oral sex while you drink it. Here's the link if you want to read it:

    http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/london-to-get-coffee-and-fellatio-cafe-a7170266.html

    I should say first that personally, I'm against using sexually objectifying marketing tactics in any way, to the point in which I filter out any degrading or exceptionally over-revealing images when collecting profile pictures for my female Facebook accounts, but that doesn't mean (even remotely) that I judge anyone else who doesn't think the same way I do.

    I don't want this to turn into either a debate about the ethics of NSFW-based marketing tactics, or a shit-posting thread about someone who thinks they're better than somebody else because they don't use NSFW-marketing. Remember, just because we don't agree with the ethics of someone else's marketing doesn't mean we can't both learn new things from their methodology and respect them as people.

    Anyways, end rant. The main reason I started this thread is because I noticed something odd in the article and was wondering what the rationale was behind it. In the first paragraph, they censor the word "blow job", saying:

    ". . .but London's next novelty opening is set to be the most surreal, controversial, anger-inducing and inevitably popular yet, a café where customers get a bl*w job with their latte."

    At first, I thought it had to do with not mentioning or linking from the site to anything NSFW (probably for some SEO or policy-based reason), but later on they posted a link to an escort site filled with NSFW pictures. At this point, I became completely confused. So, a couple questions:

    1. Does using NSFW words on a site have some negative effect that would cause a webmaster or writer to intentionally censor them? If not, why censor them?


    2. Why would a site censor an NSFW word but link directly to an NSFW site? Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of whatever motive the site had to censor the NSFW word?

    3. What are your thoughts on the marketing side of ideas like this?

    My thoughts are as follows: As for this café itself, I honestly doubt they'll be able to upscale fast enough. They're going to be getting so many customers that I honestly think the biggest problem when upscaling their franchise will be finding employees.

    As for the "money for sex" idea in general, I think there can be a lot of good money to be made in IM. If prostitution becomes legal in more areas around the world, I think we'll be seeing large brothel or escort-like affiliate offers and programs opening up, and a lot of IM'ers targeting single males by country and marketing these offers to them. For those countries, IM'ers will largely move away from live cam or paid pornography tube offers and toward offers that advertise actual sex.

    Any Facebook group, country-specific website, or Instagram page even remotely sexual in nature with traffic coming mainly from a country in which prostitution is legalized or even partly legalized is essentially a gold-mine for IM'ers to work through affiliate networks with brothels and escort services and make large amounts of money.

    I'm going to give you a rock-solid niche right now. Ready for this?

    Go to The Escort Review and make an account. You can search an area and get hundreds of phone numbers, direct lines to these escorts. Shoot them personal, nono-spammy text messages offering to build them a custom website for $500. That's one night's pull for most of these girls. And the sites they usually have are utter shit. Seriously, check them out. Pictures too, potato quality.

    One domain and a private registration on a hosting account you already have are your only expenses. Get a good template set up to use as a sample, and load it up on client sites, add in HQ pictures and some text, and a direct link to a call number, and you just magnified their userbase and made $450+ with 4 hours work at most.

    Get banking.

    Prostitution doesn't have to be legal for it to happen, escorting is already legal in many areas of the world. Escorting = paying people to be at a certain place for a certain amount of time, or following you around for a certain amount of time. Prostitution is just sex for money.

    Maybe they censor the word for the benefit of younger readers. Maybe it's just part of their policy.

    But the external link I guess is nothing to do with them - like maybe in their tos they have statement about not being responsible for any content once user exits to an external link.

    Anyway, blog jobs in London, really? Don't think it will be legal?
