If this was a private message on here from a random model I'd never worked with, I would simply hit the Report button without replying, and then forget about it.

If it was from a model I already knew, I'd interpret it as the harmless joke it was probably intended to be and treat it accordingly, and then forget about it.

On the contrary, I see none of that whatever.

This is a thread which wouldn't exist if the OP had said, "Thanks, but no thanks" and continued with life.

But I fail to see how the opportunity for a few oil-related puns can be construed as "welcoming sexual contact".


Do you honestly think that?


I'm quite sure if the thread was started by a female model posting about a photographer asking her for this type of contact it wouldn't be something which would turn into a joke. Do you honestly think if the tables were turned any female models would come onto a thread like this saying "brilliant thread" or asking what the photographers name, location and availability is? I really doubt it. If anything models would be asking who it is so they could avoid working with the person. So yes, I do think asking for her details is certainly "welcoming sexual contact" - ofcourse its probably a massive joke, maybe I just need a sense of humour because its really not that funny to me. Just a little sad and desperate looking.

Sounds like YOU need the chaperone rather than the model in this case.....

And then another model would be gone from this barren desert

Report her profile to the moderators, it's a modelling and photography site. Can't see the distinction whoever oversteps the F****ING OBVIOUS boundaries.

My take is that if anyone on this site is asked for something they're not happy with then report it to the moderators. They can then decide whether the matter is serious enough to ban the culprit or just give them a warning. What I don't understand is why people looking for sexual favours use modelling sites. If I want a 12 hour sexual encounter then I use an appropriate site where I can choose a stunning young lady who will fulfil my every desire for around £800. Looking at the hourly rates of most models here, I'd be paying a fair percentage of that before the embarrassment, risk of being reported and extra financial costs incurred from doing so

Agree entirely - there are websites where you can arrange a sh@g and a shoot - hell they might even knock off a few quid if you give them images for their profiles.
If a model is a model on here book her as a model, if she is an escort elsewhere book her as an escort elsewhere. Its not that difficult really!

If admin investigate the report(s) and make a decision to remove the model from the site, surely that's their decision? I don't understand the point you're making.

so, if the model had said," I would like some pics with my body oiled up, can we do this on our shoot"  you would have reported it ?

Is that question for me, or for everyone?

No, and this isn't really closely related to the original question.

Whilst I wouldn't condone offers or bids of this nature, one does have to distinguish between the person who makes advance suggestions which are unwelcome to photographer or model, and where level-pushing is offered/suggested at the shoot.
This sort of advance offer can be seen as a lucky escape. If the model in this case made the offer through PS mail then they should be reported for their stupidity. If they didn't make the offer through PS mail then I'd just move on.

If anyone gets regular offers of this nature they should probably examine their profile/communications in case they are (inadvertently) encouraging them (in the same way as 'up for trying anything' on a model's profile can confuse men who see everything in a sexual context)

Agree with Skymouse on this one, Keith.

Since there's no request for additional payment, it makes it entirely different. The original post implied that, by payment from the photographer, the oiling of the model's body was for his benefit, whereas what you're suggesting implies it's for the model's benefit. Ok, the model might find it sexually stimulating but how many shoots are arranged here and on many other sites by guys who want to see naked girls? Without such collaborations, half the work requests on modelling sites would disappear. Sex plays a big role in castings and anyone who doesn't believe that is either naive or dumb. The problem is, where do we draw the line - my personal feelings on the OP's post was that the girl was 'soliciting'. If she had posted her casting but included that she'd need help oiling her body, then added the £10 into her rate, it would have been far less of an issue.

Tosh. Whatever way she words it, if she adds £10 to her usual rate so the photographer can oil her up, it suggests it's for his benefit, not hers. If she wants to be oiled up because she wants to be photographed that way, and she asks the photographer to do the oiling, that shouldn't affect her rates one iota.
