This new interview is suspect to me. Polish guy who said his family moved to US when he was two years old. If so, why does he have such a strong accent. I've interacted with many Poles in NYC and their accents when speaking English never sounded like this. He sounds to me like has an Israeli (aka Hebrew) accent.
Also, I'm also quite suspicious of any male claiming to be a gigolo exclusively with female clients. I'm not saying it's impossible but very unlikely. Usually they are forced to see male clients too since there aren't enough females out there willing to pay for sex with a male.

I found the SWU videos last year and for a number of days I was just sucked into them.
I eventually came to my senses; realized I was feeding on tragic lives; confessed my sins and gave them up.

R6 He came to the states when he was 11. He said his mom took off when he was 2 but he was still in Poland where he was raised by his Baba and aunt.
IMHO he looks Polish, and sounds like a lot of Slavs who move to NYC. He was probably in Greenpoint or other parts of Brooklyn that have many Polish stores and restaurants. He mentions NJ too, where there is a large Pole scene.

Lol r25 women don't lose control of their pelvic muscles because of sex. Vaginas are designed for intercourse. Women's pelvic floor muscles may weaken after childbirth, though.

Yet another straight guy getting involved in sex with other guys to get drug money. I actually thought this interviewee, Brandon, was gonna reveal he was FTM during this interview but he never did so I guess he really is a biological male.His voice sounding a bit like somebody speaking after sucking in some helium was what threw me off.

The upload today, Cameron, is a gay guy. His drag queen persona is "Elleven DiVine". I'm only half way through it but i can already tell he's trouble. Not bad looking as a dude but I feel sorry for anybody befriending him.
He says he didn't realize he was raped by two neighborhood boys while growing up with until speaking with his therapist and discovering he suffers from repressed memory trauma. (Eye roll). He's been to rehab dozens of times including one in Hawaii he went to and he wasn't even living there at the time.

I spent 15 years in and out of meth addiction, I hustled for a bit and quit the moment I could get a real job in NYC. I met a lot of people like this along the way. Addicts crave something to fill the gaping hole they have inside themselves from rejection, indifference, and not getting enough love or feeling secure as children. You see this again and again in these interviews.
My childhood wasn’t the best, but there were good aspects and I lucked out as a teen with people that guided me along the way. I had as much fun as anyone ever could ever have getting high without dying- and walked right up to the edge of the abyss before I stopped. That was 12 years ago, and I have a life beyond my wildest dreams sober now.
Yet I shudder when people say that being an addict is a “choice”, OR those that have been sober for awhile get smug about it.. Being smug is dangerous.
Sobriety is a carefully calculated prearrangement of conditions, accountability, suggestions and awareness of consequences which “prop” up the choice to stay sober. It’s easier to do inside a fellowship of other addicts striving to as well than alone. If you are an extremely private person, free spirit or an alpha personality, you will have an extremely hard, almost impossible time doing so- because you will eventually need to relinquish control to others, deflate the ego, and lean on them for support, and surrender your will.
You could say it’s their surroundings, poverty, or being outcast, but I would argue it was instead these people died because they absolutely refused to do any of that. RIP

If you go to YouTube search, there are many critical videos about Mark Laita. The comments are filled with his fanboys defending him to the hilt; he has almost a disturbing cult like following. It’s really easy to be lulled into these kinds of videos. They are highly branded in their style and even Mark is branded himself usually wearing a size too small white t-shirt. They aren’t one off documentaries; it’s a never ending income producing misery train under the guise of ‘awareness’. What bothers me most is he has no mental health credentials, but he asks people who are highly ignored and vulnerable to unpack all their emotions and traumas then leaves them high and dry and moves in to the next ‘trick’. It’s a modern voyeuristic form of a side show or how Victorians used to visit mental asylums as entertainment.
