  1. MH, wow, how did you get the time to put this together? How long did it take you? It would be really interesting to take these demographics and compare them to other industries.

  2. Maxine, I don’t really remember how long it took, but it was all so interesting to me, time just flew by:) Yes, it would be interesting to compare. Thanks for your comment!

  3. I did not survey anyone. I merely compiled the results of the archived polls featured on The Erotic Review (see the top of the post for the link.)

    So it goes without saying, this isn’t a scientific poll. It’s hobbyists self-reporting in an anonymous poll. For what it’s worth!

  4. Hi there
    I’m confused about some of the acronyms.
    TER is obviously The Erotic Review.
    What’s DATY
    SO is obviously Significant Other.
    The Hobby is visiting sex workers
    The provider is the sex worker him/herself.
    BBBJ — is that bareback blowjob?
    Then CBJ is Condom blowjob?
    and what could CIM be?
    I have no idea what this could mean: 52% say the portion of time they’re allowed to CIM with a BBBJ is less than 25% of the time.
    What does this mean? 70% prefer GFE over PSE sessions
    And what is an ATF?
    What does it mean: xx% would see a provider who screens?
    .
    Sorry to be so ignorant. I loved the survey. Fascinating. Thanks so much for doing it.
    .
    Me: I’m 41, first visited a sex worker when I was 40. I was married at the time, (still am); two kids. She gave me a hand-job.
    Don’t *really* see it as cheating. My wife has used a strapon with me once. I’d like to do it again. With a provider or my wife.
    I would totally into filming / photographing the encounter.
    I would go ahead if the provider turned out to be somebody I knew. I’d probably enjoy it even more, actually.
    I’m not addicted to sex and I lost my virginity at the age of 21 or 22.

    The reason I do it is I’m horny. I have sex with my wife 1-2 times a month.
