I've been metafiltered.

I've just read all the comments over there at regarding this blog. Apparently there are those that think I'm a male pornographer somehow looking to make a buck. Another said that the fact that I like to have a cup of coffee first and my clients actually talk to me is 'too cute.' I quote, "I get the impression that in real life the average john is about as interested in talking to a hooker as he is to striking up a conversation with a side of beef in a butcher's shop."

OK. I guess I've seen mostly above average johns then. (And I wonder just who that commenter is getting their impressions from? Do they speak to a lot of 'johns?")

People can speculate all they wish about my real-ness. I've chosen not to let it bother me. I know I'm a real person and I think most of you do, too. Why do I blog, people wish to know. I blog for the same reason I do a lot of other things--because I can and because I enjoy it. It's pretty simple, really. Is it so odd that I like being able to share what's going on inside my head with people who are interested in what I have to say? I like the feedback, both good and bad. It's all food for thought. I'm actually kind of surprised that most of the mail I get is more 'you go girl," rather than 'you're going to burn in hell' stuff.

I had an appointment this morning with a new client--a very pleasant, polite and handsome Scandanavian IT guy. The only remarkable thing about our meeting was that he was married with a young baby. I've started to notice a trend. I've had my share of new fathers at this point. I guess for brand new moms sex is probably the last thing on their minds so it's no wonder.

I've been asked by a number of readers what I'd do if a wife ever came home while I was there. I think I would probably just let the husband handle the wife and I would leave as quickly as possible and hope she doesn't shoot me before I can go. I'm not sure how else you could handle something like that, really. I'm pretty non-conflict oriented in general, so I don't think I'd want to stick around for any drama that would be sure to ensue.
