Socialdisaster makes a valid explanation here.


Yep, I too get replies from models who claim not to do adult work but really they do, almost every time I cast.

Regardless of whether some models have hidden levels or not and the OP's initial misunderstanding about open leg, some of the behaviour she describes is not remotely acceptable. If you (any model) are getting messages from someone who will not take no for an answer when you tell them you don't do a certain level (the OP describes people pushing for levels higher than open leg even after she's made it clear she doesn't do that), please report them so the mods are aware of their profiles. If they're doing this with one model, it's likely they're doing it with others. Level pushers are a huge problem on internet sites and the more that can be done to flag them up to the mods, the better.

I state I only do adult for publication and still get chances who obviously haven't read my profile. If I get a message asking for high levels from someone that is not publishing I tend to put "sure but I'd be charging you a "fan rate" of £300ph" That tends to shut them up - haven't had any replies back since!



Brilliant

Must let everyone know if you get a positive reply.

As seen in,

lots of adult publications I would say.
To me regardless of the new large typed section you give the impression that you do full frontal and open leg, METART would not be the same without it and as for 100% hardcore !!!!
I would suggest if you want to pull away from that type of work you should consider rewriting your portfolio not just editing it.

100% hardcore flyer was for a hardcore 'music' event at nightclub. I don't understand, lots of adult publications? I now know that the general thought is full frontal nudity/open leg is classed as adult but as far as I can see its only Met Art that some people would class as adult publication, I don't know what you mean by I have lots of adult publications?

"How do I stop people asking me for adult!?"............Sadly, I don't think you can.

If people ask you to do adult if its adult within the rules of the site...it takes a second to ignore them, if its adult outwith the rules of the site then report them to the moderators. You may be sensding mixed messages by listing a well known soft porn site as a credit, although I'm intrigued as to how you can list front cover when its a website with no magazine derivative and even more intrigued how you slipped past the picture editor with enhanced ..? breasts

It is fairly inevitable that you will get requests for work at or slightly above the level at which you work.
If they are polite and reasonable I personally like to send an equally polite reply, although you could justifiably choose to ignore them. But anything aggressive about the request, either in the original message or in not taking no for an answer, really ought to be reported.

I have a feeling that it is you that are not understanding Adult Publications. Any publication that is in a outer cover and is placed on the top shelf of a well known newsagents is Adult, the photographs therein are classed as adult.

I have myself faced the problem of having asked the model three or four times in pre shoot emails that they are sure what adult is and getting positive replies, that when it comes to the shoot, they then tell me that do not do full frontal or open leg.

I believe there is a substantial problem of models not understanding what is adult and what is not. I when I want full frontal nude always state that I want adult as I dislike being told in a shoot that the model will not do it. But as I have said above it still happens.

Anyone that has photographs in METART is shooting adult, anyone that has photographs in the likes of Mayfair or suchlike is shooting Adult.

As I said in my first posting if you want to pull away from doing adult work and don't want to be asked to such you need to rewrite your profile and get rid of all references to adult publications, that is top shelf publications.
