Rated X vs. XX vs. XXX???

Ok So watching Tyra and the Topic of today's show was another social experiment. This one focusing on the Adult Industry...and the phrase "chain of command" came up.

They brought together different women from different "areas" of the Adult Entertainment.

Now I know strippers, gogo-dancers, and thats about it...lol

No first hand info on any other occupations in that industry. So I'm playing devil's advocate.

And im curious about the responses and view points people have.

They brought on :

1. A Centerfold
2. A Pornstar
3. A Topless Dancer
4. A Web Cam Girl
5. An Escort
6. A Legal Prostitute
7. An Illegal Prostitute


(This is in no order, this is just the order I listed them in.)

Now of course each lady (on the show) Does have an argument as to why her "position" in this industry is safer, less degrading, better-than any of the other positions. Specifically the porn-star , centerfold, and webcam girls.

So my first question...in this industry is there a "better"?

"I'm a centerfold so I'm better than a prostitute because I'm not having sex for $$"

One could say "But you get naked for $$, so why's naked better than sex?"

"I'm a stripper, so I'm better than a pornstar because I'm not having SEX for $$, I just take my clothes off"


"You're naked, but no one can "touch" you , so thats not as bad?"


This "social experiment" has me scratching my head .

Honestly, aside from prostitution (and until this show I didnt know there was legal vs. ILLEGAL prostitution)

I don't see how/why some are better and some are worse.

Now the 2nd half of this experiment on Tyra was in Tyra's "Porn Town" (she made it up)

She had the ladies choose the chain of command for the town with titles like Town Mayer, Teacher, Lawyer, Criminal etc...

So this is how it got broken up, since the women voted on who got what role...

The pornstar was voted Mayor
The topless Dancer voted Teacher
The Legal Prostitue was voted Lawyer
and the Illegal Prostititue was voted Criminal

etc etc...


And according to these women there IS a chain of command in this industry..Seem's to me the lines are a bit smudged though..

I can see the pro's and con's in ANY of these roles...the only consatnt in each one is $$.

And I don't care what any woman says...the thought of "dancing" has made u raise an eyebrow at least once...

The costumes, the pole tricks etc.

But to me the mental/emotional toll any of these jobs takes on the person is no piece of cake.
I'm not judging anyone in these roles, because the only life I'm an authority on is my own.

(The porn star has 2 bachelor's degree's FYI. Just thought that was a cool fact to throw into the mix)

So on that note I'm gonna stop rambling...the floor is open.

Is one more X-rated than the other, Is one less degrading, or more frowned upon?

Let me know...

Deuces!

This experiment on the surface to me is never really going to have a definitive answer because all the areas of "judgement" are all subjective. Whats the most immoral thing to me might be child's play to another. And there are so many grey areas between those roles listed. Where does an escort fall on the list because technically they can do as much as a pornstar or as little as a nun and still get paid for it. A Cam girl may be nastier/freakier then some dancers but does it change things because there's no physical contact?

Very slippery slope......

Nightfall - thats why it had me scartching my head. These women were real adamant abt their roles not being "as bad" it was interesting...

They are all xrated! The Web Cam, Centerfold, Adult Film star and Topless dancer's bread and butter is 13-39 year olds who mastabate to them. That's a fact! Anyone of these ladies would freak out if they lil brothers friends knew it was them or worse thier Pops Friends! Now as far as the Sex, same thing. How would you feel if your best guy friend had one of these girls? It's all Xrated no matter how you spoonin it!
