Seeking pleasure in the Covid era
The Corona virus has affected almost everything and has changed and completely changed. It has transcended all geographic, political and racial borders and limitations and has caused enormous loss of life, money and time.
The deadly pandemic has not spared developed and developing countries, rich and poor, young and old, men, women and children. Show me to a person a sphere of our activity, a city and a country which is neither spared nor affected by the pandemic.
People have lost their businesses, their jobs and their resources. According to a report released by India Today, around 12.2 crore people have become unemployed. Beggars, orphans and street urchins are hit hard, abandoned and ignored by most governments! And “street women” are the worst victims of this Covid era. But, alas who cares?
It is true that our Sonagachi is the biggest red light zone in Asia and prostitution is known as the oldest profession in the world! Yet “street women” are looked down upon, humiliated, exploited and their profession is not officially recognized as a profession here. Interestingly, when the virus hit their “market”, when help came out of nowhere, these women helped themselves by starting to “sell themselves” online.
You can call it “Virtual Prostitution” or “Virtual Pleasure”, or have the guts to invent a new term like “Virtutituion”, but it is a reality. Most dating apps have “virtually” opened up a global market for these online “working girls”. But again, these women encountered fierce competition from a different kind of player.
To glean facts for this article, I have voluntarily and unintentionally joined a few dating apps, using my real name, facts, and “ numbers. ” messages and pings from attractive young girls, women and mermaids. At first, it all gave me a bit of euphoria and filled me with narcissism! Soon the truth appeared. While chatting, many girls used preferred terms to lure me into their “ trap ” to get me money.
I found out that most of the “ invitations ” that flattered and fattened this 65+ man were from boys and men who were making big bucks daily on these dating apps, using fake profiles and broadcasting porn videos to gullible people. some girls turned off their phones after taking “little gifts” from me! One thing is clear that in the days of Covid, many educated young boys and girls turned to these dating apps to make money easily and quickly. Young housewives were also found there ‘helping themselves’ to make a quick buck using social media platforms.
Again, I have noticed that many Indian girls and women are “helping each other” on websites like Superchat and Stripchat. At the very beginning, I have to say that these websites are porn sites where one can watch live strip shows with voyeuristic pleasure.
The point is, there are a lot of Indian strippers in high demand on these sites, I’m not sure if I should say it with pride or pain. At any time, we can see hundreds of spectators in the halls where our girls and women behave like sporty women and earn thousands of rupees in the form of “tokens” from the observers!
It is a known fact that in the days of Covid most Indians started watching porn. For many, it has also become a great source of income. Do not think about the perverse effects of these apps and sites on individuals, families and our society as long as our governments look away. But what our girls and boys need to know is that anything they show and share like their “private” photos and videos to their partners and lovers on social media platforms is actually available in the market.
The bottom line here is that when no one is helping you, help yourself. Don’t choose the wrong ways and wrong ways to help yourself. And it is time for our governments to help these unfortunate people and take action against such apps and sites that turn our young people into voyeurs and strollers.
