Is OnlyFans starting to ruin prostitution?

Earlier I predicted, more or less, that OnlyFans would ruin dating.  Well, it turns out that it also might be ruining even “pay-for-play” too.  Mind you, I don’t recommend prostitution, but I came across a discussion indicating that it might be doom and gloom for the “Oldest Profession”.  If this continues, OnlyFans and other pics-for-pay services might end up doing more to destroy it than a brigade of Progressive Era social reformers.  The following is excerpted, and somewhat redacted, from a discussion of how flaky “escorts” have become lately.  One guy, who even has had trouble finding a ladyboy, states the following – and get ready to cringe:

There’s an amazingly beautiful, hung TS on my local [escort website]. She says she gets so many game-player messages she asks you to subscribe to her OnlyFans to show you’re serious and a post there gives an alternate text to contact her. So, okay. I’ll drop $16 to show I’m serious. A couple responses to my queries to get together. Then nothing for months now. Sorry, I’m not going to keep paying a monthly fee so she’ll respond. Did it once. Expressed sincere interest in meeting. Clearly she has no intention of meeting people. She just wants OF subscribers. Sitting back, making a few teaser clips now and then, and watching the money trickle in from 100s of guys is easier (and safer) than hooking up for a couple hundred a pop.

All this OF and Snapchat and all the rest has ruined it for guys who want more than a quick visit car BJ from the nearest “a hole is a hole, who cares if they’re an ugly skanky smelly heroin addict” escort. Fakes, flakes and scammers are the majority, not the exception. That’s why it often seems next to impossible to get laid in a whorehouse. It’s not you and me, or our approach, except that we have SOME standards.

You read that right.  He’s found it damn near impossible to find a “Hello Sailor” girl – in this case, who isn’t even a girl – other than dope fiends feeding their addictions.  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?  So then he got an OnlyFans subscription to “her” account only to find that this ladyboy was scamming him.  He continues:

I had met this one particular woman through [e-THOT website]. She’s pretty cool. Our schedules never meshed well. We got together for dinner a couple times; we have a nice rapport. FINALLY after almost 2 years we do The Deed. Well worth the wait. She even [performed a certain activity]. Now Covid, hard time all around. A few weeks ago she hit me up to buy some explicit video she does for premium Snapchat. Her theory is it’s worth $200 to jerk off to video of someone you actually know and like. Sorry, I’m hands-on only. Plenty of free porn to jerk off to online. If my finances were better I’d pay to actually fuck her again, but she wasn’t cheap (considering her video is $200, just imagine). I paid less for a (different) truly passable hot TS from [escort website]. I feel sorry for her that she’s barely scraping by, but so am I at the moment. Gotta pay my own bills before I help someone pay theirs too.

So he met a different hooker earlier, they apparently carried on a couple years of email game, and finally he got the bang which cost him an arm and a leg.  Then recently, she wanted him to pay two hundred bucks for beat-off material, which costs more than (euwww) banging a ladyboy.

Fortunately, he’s sensible enough to realize that flogging the dolphin is free!  Again, I don’t recommend prostitution, but at least it’s a two-way transaction where the guy gets something out of it!
