Understanding Addiction to Paid Sex

Sex addiction, when it comes in the form of paid sex, can have a greater negative impact on a person’s life than some other sex addiction behaviors. Not only can it form a dependence on faulty relationships, but can cause financial, legal, and health problems.Paid sex comes in many forms, from the most common phone sex to the highest profile, prostitution, but all are forms of sex addiction.Phone sex is one of the easiest to access version of paid sex, but because the calls are charged by the minute, it can quickly become a large financial burden for a person with sex addiction seeking this as an outlet. Phone sex offers a level of intimacy, or false intimacy, if you will, above pornography, but allows for some distancing, making it an attractive option for an addict looking for a minimal degree of intimacy but may be too shy or lack the social skills to obtain sex in another fashion.A number of things can occur during phone sex. Different services offer different options, and paid sex workers, sometimes referred to as “fantasy artists” or “adult phone entertainers,” are usually trained to provide these various services to callers. The conversations can include suggestive language, descriptions of sexual acts, the verbal acting out of sexual acts, or guided sex tours. These things can revolve around taboos or other acts the caller does not have access to in real life. Callers will often masturbate during the conversations or shortly after.Someone who uses phone sex to cope with a problem or fill a need can quickly find him or herself in a large amount of credit card debt, or with a high phone bill. If the person is suffering a true sex addiction, the initial “sticker shock” may not have enough shock value at first to get them to stop, and in fact can escalate the addiction by incurring even more credit card and phone bills. This can cause a downward spiral, with the financial pressure pushing the sex addict deeper into the behavior, or causing them to seek other outlets for it. If they are left unstopped, they may resort to criminal behavior to pay for phone sex, such as stealing cell phones or credit cards.Because of the level of human interaction going on, a person with this addiction can develop an unrealistic sense of what a real relationship entails. If the behavior carries on for a long time and the sex addiction is deep enough, it can prevent a person from forming valid relationships when the opportunity arises, or sabotaging an existing relationship. The sex addict comes to rely on these “relationships” as real. Phone sex is considered cheating by many, and because of the billing situation can be difficult for a sex addict to conceal. This can lead to emotionally charged and unexpected scenarios when the spouse or partner discovers their significant other is not only in debt, but had been paying for phone sex.Aside from paid phone sex, an addict can also use Websites that have a paying component. There is an abundance of free pornography online, however, and while these Websites are able to do business, a sex addict who is relying on them has them as less costly options compared to phone sex or prostitution.Like phone sex, prostitution raises a cost issue which we have covered. Besides financial ramifications, prostitution presents significant health risks to the addict, not the least of which are sexually transmitted diseases. Prostitution is also illegal in most places and is usually surrounded by other illegal activities and violent people supporting and practicing them. A person with a sex addiction who sees prostitutes on a regular basis also exposes him or herself to legal consequences which can damage a reputation or cost a person their marriage, family, relationships or job.A sex addict using prostitution may be seeking a level of intimacy not found with other forms of sexual release available to them. While the interaction may simulate the intimate parts of a real relationship, it only leads the sex addict to develop a poor understanding of meaningful romantic interaction. And like phone sex, it can stunt or block a valid relationship from forming or destroy an existing one.Prostitution, and to a lesser extent, phone sex, also creates a false power dynamic that can add to the distorted idea of what a relationship should be. The prostitute is a paid contractor, and will perform sex acts the client might not otherwise be able to engage in with someone not performing for money. The prostitute is in a subservient position more akin to an employee rather than a caring romantic partner. This may become part of the attraction to the person with this addiction and they may carry some of the mindset into a real relationship by attempting to trade favors, gifts, or affection for sex.

Commercial Loan Borrowers – Is There Such a Thing As a Perfect One?

There are no perfect Borrowers. Why? Because each Borrower has their own set of risks associated with them. They way banks look at risk is unique to each bank. Not only is it unique to each bank but also unique to each lender, underwriter, credit officer, senior credit officer, loan reviewer, regulator, and the list goes on.When dealing with lending out someone else’s money, it is guaranteed that each of the Borrower’s risks is scrutinized differently by each person who has a stake in that credit (or loan/exposure). There are guidelines set by each institution that “guides” each individuals thought process about the loan request (typically called a credit policy), however, each individual underwriter/reviewer will have their own take on what they feel is critical and subject to further analysis.Each Borrower’s loan request is put through a subjective evaluation before money is lent. The key word here is subjective. What is the appropriate debt service coverage, loan to value, debt to tangible net worth, structure, covenant, etc.? All subjective – granted there are best practices, but nonetheless, subjective. The loan request is subject to industry comparison, subject to regulation, subject to individual thought process, etc. Once this is understood, the Borrower can begin to understand a bank’s underwriting process.Once all information related to the loan request is obtained, an analyst will typically crunch the numbers and begin underwriting the deal. Once the analysis is completed it is typically reviewed by at least three additional parties. For a smaller bank, the reviewers may include the Credit Manager and/or Senior Credit Officer. Once reviewed, depending on the size of the credit, it will need to be approved by the Senior Credit Officer, Approval Officers (i.e. Division President and CEO), and/or a Loan Committee. Once the loan is approved, it then needs to make its way through the bank’s Loan Review division. At periodic intervals the loan package will be reviewed by regulators such as the FDIC. Just from this example, the number of individuals looking at and scrutinizing the Borrower’s loan request is almost in the double digits.With so many individuals reviewing a single deal, whose jobs are to be critical of the Borrower’s loan request, it is easy to see why there is no such thing as a perfect Borrower.

Are your family and friends being harassed and threatened about being sued for conspiracy to your crime?These are the most common tactics used by scheme companies today so that you would provide them with your credit card or bank account information. They tell you that you need to pay off a payday loan debt that you supposedly borrowed from a lender online.Who would not be afraid of these threats? Most people who receive these phone calls are the ones who did obtain a payday loan over the internet at some point or another. Let’s face it; payday loan borrowers are repeat borrowers. It is possible that one may forget which internet companies they actually have borrowed money from. Upon receiving one of these calls, one might think that they forgot to pay off the lender and now is the time to pay them back.It is not so hard to believe these scammers either. Most will tell the victim that they are collecting the money to pay off payday loans that they did owe before, or may currently still owe. 99% of the time, they will convince you that you borrowed the payday loan by stating the same exact information that is typically used to apply for a loan: your social security number, your bank account number, employer information, and personal references.So how did these companies get a hold of your information if they are not your payday lender? How can you be sure that this is a scam?There is no certain answer as to how these scam companies gather your personal and private information. The process is still under investigation and may take years to crack.Majority of the people who receive these calls are those who do have payday loan debt with numerous companies over the internet. In most cases, these people are protected by the payday loan consolidation company they are working with. These companies can easily track which collections calls are legit or not.So what if you are not working with a payday loan consolidation company? How will you know that this is a scam? First of all, think to yourself: “Will a ‘law firm’ actually ask me to make a payment directly to them? Is that really their job?” Obviously, the answer to this questions is NO. Second, most of these scam companies work off-shore and you will be able to tell the difference just by hearing their thick accents.

You can also take their phone number and search for it online to see if it is a legit company or not.While many have fallen victim into this scam, you do not have to be one of them. Stand your ground and do not be afraid to say no to these criminals. Be persistent and let them know that you will not succumb to their threats.
