Backstage at an Intima Secret photo shoot. I’m retired, but I could be persuaded to come out of retirement for a photographer’s job like that.
I’m not talking about myself, here. And I’m not talking about REAL friends. Talking about Facebook and local chicas who are trying to earn a living renting out their affections. I have dozens of such friends here in town that I have never met in person. If you use Facebook, you can probably find me and take a look through my ‘friends.’ I still have a few chicas I actually HAVE met who live in Costa Rica, but the large majority of my FB friends at the moment are from here in Medellin.
I have gotten, and still get, friend requests from local ladies. Virtually all of them are much more attractive than I am. If you would see us together in the street, the obvious conclusion would be that she was a working girl, and you would be right, though I generally prefer more private settings than walking down the boulevard hand in hand with someone 1/3 my age. But you get the idea.
Getting back to FB girls on my friends list, there are virtually none that I wouldn’t do for free, though attractiveness does vary quite a bit. At the bottom end of the spectrum are some girls who got the idea from a friend who had some success and thought to herself, why not me? I have one who has sent me a few messages and offered to come see me for a very reasonable price. She seems quite nice but just doesn’t ‘turn me on’ as the saying goes. At the other end of the scale are some absolutely stunning girls. There is one in particular that posts often with the phrase ‘citas disponible,’ or, in English, appointments available. This particular girl has a very lovely body and a pretty face, if not totally stunning. In any case, I decided to ask what she charged for an hour. Her ‘tarifa’ was about twice what similar local girls charge who confine themselves to local websites, and three times what the girls in the local ‘casas’ are charging. Apparently it pays to advertise.
But it brings to mind another chica who uses facebook and always posts very sexy pictures of herself, and always gets a lot of compliments, likes, and suggestive remarks. Unlike the aforementioned girl, her prices are quite reasonable, but she’s a bit on the ‘curvy’ side. The thing is, she has over 700 friends and quite a few more followers. But for all that, she still posts frequently that she has appointments available.
I guess my point, such as it is, is that even if you see a post by some hot chica on FB with a bunch of responses, all telling her how hot and beautiful she is, she still has time for YOU. Isn’t that nice?
The water is warm and the surf is up for these lovely surfer girls. Fun, fun, fun.
I was absent for a week as I visited friends in my old home town. My ‘vacation’ was actually a vacation from NON-celibacy. But I did run into some old friends who had lived in Costa Rica or at least visited there, and none of them was happy about the celibate lives they were living in the U. S. A. They all asked me about Colombia, and wanted to know if the women here were really as beautiful and sexy as people say. My answer was that not ALL Colombian women are beautiful. Some are quite the contrary. But I was quick to add that there were still zillions of beauties here and a man who had a little discretionary income could certainly arrange some very attractive local company for himself.
It brought home to me the simple truth that there are a great number of men who have good reasons to live in the U. S. A. or elsewhere in the North American sexual desert, but don’t enjoy the involuntarily celibate lives they live. To those ‘in the know,’ there are options. Those who are unaware of those options may be resigned to their fates, or they may not. Others realize that the solution lies just a plane ride away.
There are some difficulties in exercising this option for many. The married ones probably need to think up a pretty good excuse. Deep sea fishing was one that worked pretty well for Costa Rica, but won’t really pass inspection in Medellin. Those who are not married have it easier. Friends may ask why Medellin, but I suppose nobody has to know you aren’t actually going to the beach somewhere instead of inland. Any excuse will do if you don’t have somebody who is going to examine it too closely… like a wife, just for example.
I met more married travelers when I was in Costa Rica that I meet in Medellin, and maybe it’s because excuses aren’t as easy to fabricate. Among those with nobody to answer to, I meet plenty of gringos who have found Medellin very much to their taste.
There are other places, of course. Some of them actually provide pretty decent excuses. I hear the trout fishing is very good in Argentina. In any event, for those not overly restricted, vacations from celibacy can be had. No question.
