Would you pay to play with a girl?

( Warning – some  links maybe NSFW  – Bookmark and click later if in doubt)

As reported by  Xbox Live IGN   in the article “Would you pay a girl to play Halo with you?”   ( SAFE)  by Daemon Hatfield Theres a new game service launching called Gamecrush  (Maybe  NSFW)  where Players ( boys)  can sign up and for a fee  play with Playdates ( girls).  The girls keep %60 of any money they earn,  .

“For $8.25 ( US)  you get 500 credits, which is enough for one game (400 credits) and a 100 credit tip at the end. An Xbox Live game will last 10 minutes, while a casual Flash game will get you six minutes of face time with your PlayDate.”

So working on if your popular  – and can get 5 10 min sessions in an hour ( allowing for time for waiting/admin) that’s $24.75 US an hour.  ( plus tips).  I could think of worse ways of making money, and realistically most adult phone operators wouldn’t make much more than that.  ( I hear its commission based with however many minutes you can keep them on the line for) If you did that 6/7 days a week you could make a nice little sum out of gaming 8 hours a day.   From a tax point that would then mean any console costs/game costs /subscriptions would be tax deductible. ( Try and explain that to the tax man though.. ) There are already 1200 girls already signed up as playdates  – will there be enough players to make it worthwhile? Enough male gamers who want this service?

“GameCrush says it modeled its pricing structure after the cost of buying a girl a drink at a bar.”

How how many ‘drinks’  do you want to pay for?  And do you really want to buy a drink for  a girl whose job it is to accept ‘drinks’ off as many men as possible. I mean the idea of buying a girl a drink in a bar is the opportunity to have a chat – get to know her – and in this day and age – if she likes you – buys you a drink – you keep talking ect. Exchange numbers and so on, but this isn’t an introductory service, you are paying for ‘pleasure’   They were talking about bringing WOW as a game you can play into it.  Imagine your healer on a hard mode saying on vent  ” Just one sec guys I need to change my WebCam Angle”  or Opps..  I can’t heal one handed.. ”

Buying a girls time in Gamecrush is no guarantee that you will get anything other than her company, and maybe that will be what some ‘players’  want – a friendly female voice to talk to.  What she is willing to do/say is entirely up to her.  I guess her popularity will also be determined by that as well and her repeat ‘customers’.

You may have already heard of Camgirls/GamerGirls – another girls while gaming service.  Not offering any links other than an interview with one Where Eddie Carrington of the Hunting lodge asked 20 Questions – Confessions of a CamGirl Gamergirl  ( NSFW if your sensitive about the Adult industry)   Getting paid/tipped to be watched while you play a game in states of undress/activity is something else that is available.

Selling one self is touted as ‘the oldest profession in the book”  I guess it seems almost natural & sad at the same time with the increase in female participation in gaming that with it comes opportunities and the market for services such as Gamecrush and Camgirls.  I’m sure it’s not what everyone had in mind when trying to encourage female participation in the gaming market though.  From a female liberation point – your body – your voice – your cam  – do what you want. That you can get paid for gaming by using your own resources – well its a choice.   I mean arguably we ‘sell’ ourselves to prospective partners to varying degrees anyway. However the moment you put a price on your time,  your company, your affections – it all changes – it becomes a transaction and not something do you because you really do want to spend time with someone.

It would change the reasons  why I game – and it’s not to meet new partners/cyber in vent  – my gender is not supposed to matter in gaming.I support the girls choices to do what they want – but I will be a little  judgemental because it’s not something I would do. I game because I want to play not because I can make a buck flashing my boobs to some stranger on the internet, and besides your never as anonymous as you think you are.

 I also feel that these services may do harm to the female image in gaming.-  and while the age of the average gamer is very much  an adult, and they have adult needs and wants,  girls still struggle at being taken seriously as gamers, and are already blamed for more ‘drama’ then we can take credit for, and this may make it just that little bit harder when the sex industry has infiltrated the gaming industry.

But I wonder – do guys want this sort of crossover? Does it destroy something sacred in gaming, or enhance your experience?

Also lastly would there be a market for women watching men without shirts in Calvin Klein briefs laying on a bed playing Play Station or X box?Though personally I can’t find the idea of a man in an apron sexy – nor a man with a game console in his hand /headset on his head doesn’t do it for me either..

    As if “omg ur a girl!” isn’t bad enough, now it’s “omg a girl, and she’s free!”

    Pardon the double post, but I suddenly remembered a radio interview with a woman who worked the phones at a whorehouse. Pardon me, escort service. There would be men who called just to talk. Some where incredibly pitiful, materialistic, arrogant, and egotistical. They were there to rent women’s bodies, but they still wanted to talk and talk and talk.

  3. 4 Pugnacious Priest March 24, 2010 at 2:52 am

    @Klep – so there is money to be made just by listening to men talk? I mean no one has set up a ‘talking service’ I can do that!

    • 5 Klepsacovic March 24, 2010 at 2:57 am

      I’m pretty sure she was on commission for getting guys set up, so just talking wasn’t the pay. Small hourly wage. The talking was because when your business is based on creepy lonely people, you let them be creepy and lonely.

      The talking service I think is called phone sex. I suppose someone could call just to talk.

    Hell no. It’s just a girl, there are lots of them.

    I’d pay to play with good players (which there are never enough of from my experience), if some of them happen to be girls, so be it. Paying to play with someone just because they’re a girl… No.

    • 7 Pugnacious Priest March 24, 2010 at 4:37 am

      Just a girl! – Lots of them! – if only it were that easy to find nice boys! A good player match making system hasn’t been done either – there would need to be a lot of trust in the authority though that determined skill though – and would it be like a temp agency that hired out skilled players or a guild match making system. my mind boggles!

      • 8 Ablimoth March 24, 2010 at 6:23 am

        hahaha, I love it! A guild of mercenaries hiring themselves out to raiders that need help “for just that one boss”… What a brilliant idea! *cogs are turning* No… can you imagine the scrubs you’d have to carry through each instance? Every day? That’s not my idea of fun!

        Nice boys exist… at least according to my GF, most everyone I know goes all nuts if realise they’re playing with a girl (for the record, I’m a guy. I’ve played with lots of girls though).

        • 9 Ablimoth March 24, 2010 at 6:26 am

          Also, odd question (that may be a little creepy) but you’re in Sydney? Are you going to: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=276796249249

          I don’t mean it to be creepy, just curious if you’d seen it.

          • 10 Pugnacious Priest March 24, 2010 at 8:14 am

            Lol not creepy.. No won’t be attending, there was some discussion on twitter by @growupaustralia about a zombie rally attracting attention to the cause of a 18+ rating however I agree with some of the comments that while its good for a laugh, as a political statement and trying to get people to take the issue seriously zombies lurching down the mainstreet is not the right way

  5. 11 Cassandri March 24, 2010 at 4:09 am

    This whole thing is kind of weird. I mean, I don’t actually have any problem with it I think the girls who are part of the service are really just selling a fantasy.

    I do wonder though: are they expected to be any good at the actual game?

    I mean, if it were introduced in Wow, would you actually play together or just stand around in Dalaran cybering?

    • 12 Pugnacious Priest March 24, 2010 at 4:34 am

      Take them into a private instance. For sure.
      I’m not sure about the good part.. would it deflate their ego if you were better? Or they might be into World PVP and getting ganked and spanked I’m not sure how it would work. Realm forum add ” Playmate available now on your server!”

  6. 13 theerivs March 24, 2010 at 5:12 am

    No I wouldn’t pay a girl to play with me, First off what if she reaches under her dress and pulls out a bigger sword. Secondly what if she’s better then me…I know unbelievable, but it could happen in the near future.

  7. 15 gevlon March 24, 2010 at 6:09 am

    There is supply for everything there is demand. As long as there are guys SO desperate to contact a girl (even without the slightest chance of a date), there will be girls selling different types of contacting and agencies arranging the contact.

    I say: their money and their body. Do what they want, just out of my sight.

  8. 17 Bavarian March 24, 2010 at 10:27 am

    Couldn’t agree more. The greasy bastards in the background pocketing the vast majority of the cash are what I have a problem with.

    Just like in any similar situation NOT involving gaming, the girls are often from poor countries, desperate and taken advantage of in terms of being paid peanuts.

  9. 18 Narx March 24, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    I’ve played with lots of women in WoW. Just last week I caught up with one who was nearby me for work purposes.

    I just don’t get why you would pay, to play a game with a female, for 10 minutes.

    I am sure there is all kinds of stipulations such as no vent, no exchanging email address/IM details etc.

    Ugh… silly if you ask me. But I bet it’ll be a hit….

    • 19 Pugnacious Priest March 24, 2010 at 10:38 pm

      Well if they ‘hooked’ up with every guy they played with and gave out personal information then they wouldn’t make money from it, and yeah their servers seemed to have crashed yesterday so people are interested!

    • 20 Narx March 25, 2010 at 3:23 am

      Are you serious? They crashed their servers?


      So… fail. How does… how are they supposed to deliver a gaming experience with failing servers?

      Oh wait… ~coughFrostmournelastnightcough~

      But in all seriousness, with the sheer number of female WoW players, including adult film stars amongst others, how hard is it to find a female who games?

      • 21 Pugnacious Priest March 25, 2010 at 6:31 am

        but its got to be a female willing to talk to you – and Uhhh.. maybe do more.. and yes the Hamster keeping Dath’remar last night died too , and it took an hour to find a replacment.

  10. 22 GeeBee March 24, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    Wow, I read a bit about this whole thing yesterday and the concept seems to weird! As you pointed out, it’s not like there’s any promise of anything more from the female gamer than minutes of chat time. I mean, how many “drinks” would men keep buying?

    It’s interesting and yet, still very weird.

    • 23 Pugnacious Priest March 24, 2010 at 10:41 pm

      maybe some of it will be clean.. well I hope it’s so.. that as sad as it may sound talking to afriendly voice might be what some people need/want. It doesn’t have to esculate.. but It will be interesting to see what happens.

  11. 24 Oxymustard March 24, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    Are they pro? I wouldn’t pay if they’re scrubs.

  12. 26 krizzlybear March 24, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    No thanks. I pay enough money just to play WoW as it is.

  13. 27 Elleseven March 24, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    Hmm, how do they verify the age? I could see this being a problem with underage girls looking to make easy money.

    • 28 Pugnacious Priest March 24, 2010 at 10:30 pm

      Really good point – I would hope in their sign up they do age verification on the playmates especially since the possibility of ‘incitement’ to committ particular acts would be possible – it could even work in reverse on impressionable underage males. It’s still not right or legal.

  14. 29 kamiken1 March 24, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    No I would never pay to play with a girl. I find it funny that they quote it as being equivalent to buying a girl a drink at a bar. Its already extremely rare that I do that anymore because honestly its no longer worth doing for various reasons. When you see enough of your female friends roll the buy me a drink scam on plenty of men and then ditch them after they have their drink you tend to learn to be a bit more careful in who you deal with. I guess at least with this service you know what you are getting into and its less of a scam, but I guess to each his own.

  15. 31 Analogue March 24, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    Very sad, I think. My husband and I play WoW together and it’s a fun activity. Paying for the privilege of playing with someone once? I don’t think so… I will say though when we mention on vent or in a pug that we’re married he gets lots of “dude, my girlfriend won’t play WoW, you’re lucky!” comments. *I* never get the comments directed at me, though…

  16. 32 Muron March 25, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    I can easily see women going for this as it’s 25$ an hour for work that anyone can do (don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home and you could do it anytime).

    However I am hard pressed to imagine men willing to pay almost 50$ an hour just to talk to a woman? I can’t imagine there would be enough demand to keep all 1200 of the women who signed up for this working.

  17. 33 slikrx.balthazario March 26, 2010 at 1:52 am

    On a very basic “your body & your time, do as you will”, it’s fine.

    On the “guys are willing to PAY for that?!?!?” it’s rather creepy.

    On the “Danica Patrick/ girls selling themselves and their respect” opint of view, it’s really sad. Danica is a pro racer, and girl gamers can be really good. However, it’s difficult to ignore that “type” that is being when you look at females as a whole in gaming & racing.

    Overall, just kinda sad. (I’m a guy and play WoW -and xbox- with my girlfriend, so I don’t get it…)

  18. 34 Kainda March 27, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    I started playing WoW because it was a split in my relationship. Since I began playing we’ve been great. I love jumping on to run aquick dungeon on our 80’s then switching to our alts to level them. I just can’t imaging 10 minutes of game play with a new random guy each time is a lot of fun. Personally I agree that girls are not recognized as gamers enough. Despite my reason for starting to play WoW, I continue because I enjoy it and it something I can do when I am bored of life. I also play Xbox and Wii fairly often as well as several PC games (Left 4 Dead, CoD 4, etc) and when someone sees me playing, a lot of the time the reaction is surprise. So having a bunch of girls putting themselves out as playmates? I see that as causing women more problems in the gaming world for sure. But, as I have seen several times, it is their body/choice. Who am I to tell them not to do it?

  19. 35 Carla April 16, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    I personally think these girls are not realizing their full potential. “So working on if your popular – and can get 5 10 min sessions in an hour ( allowing for time for waiting/admin) that’s $24.75 US an hour. ( plus tips). ”

    If you’re going to be eye candy, you might as well strip and make some real money. I used to work for Comcast, now I make in one night what I was making in 2 weeks. Think about it, ladies. Don’t let these men sell you short for their games.
