Um . . .
Trumwill and I had a discussion a while back about whether or not the women that appear in these kind of photographs are paid models, marquee clients, or a representative sample of the women that are really looking to marry and settle down with a representative sample of the men who patronize Ukrainian MOB websites.
But that’s a discussion for another day. The point I want to make now is that, when I look at these pictures, the word “accessible” is not the one that comes to mind. What does come to mind is “swimsuit model” followed by “has swimsuit model mating opportunities.” Neither thought is likely to induce me to part with my hard-earned money for an illusory shot at wooing her.
So I’m thinking that the MOB outfits are overplaying the lingerie model / porn star angle at the expense of the girl-next-door angle. If male patrons are anything like me, they would be put off by photographs that portray the women as either out-of-reach or of low character.* In fact, my first choice would be this girl:
Note the differences: first, she’s modestly clothed. Second, her pose is subtle; only the gentle hair tug looks coached. Finally, while she is certainly beautiful, she isn’t glamorous in the way that so many of the other girls are portrayed.
On the other hand . . . maybe I’m not the target audience for these websites. Maybe the point of the tarted-up pics is to attract guys with low skepticism. In other words, maybe this site is putting the mob in MOB.
* The first picture is actually much more tame than most of the ones on offer, which were either blatantly NSFW or so badly contrived that I would be embarrassed to display them here.
