I'll make this one quick. Are you disinclined to hire when intellectual deficiency is so boldly on display as it is in this brief ad:

 

http://www.men4rentnow.com/gay/escort/male/massage/baton_rouge_/Vanryan33/309538?

 

My own answer is "yes," but I'm curious if others may be inclined to overlook such a glaring misuse of a word TWICE in such a short (and tersely-worded) ad?

 

Thanks,

 

Kevin

hell yes. I am a big believer that the pro ads reflect on the type of guy they are. photos with messy rooms in the background usually mean they are messy in life little text to me means either they can't be bothered or they have nothing to say. either is a red flag for me. when they have spelling mistakes and grammatical errors it is a real turn off. it's one thing chatting back and forth in a text or on a message board but a pro ad is exactly that it's an advertisement of the pro. it reflects their brand.

 

of course when they are really hot and really hung you can overlook a lot. lol

While I do find that an obvious lack of education can be unattractive, the attitude apparent in the ad is more important. I find ads that are loaded with "do's and dont's" and spend half the text bitching about "time wasters", to be much less attractive. I used to see a masseur who had a badly written ad. He had very little education, and the ad was poorly written and had some examples of bad grammar. However, the tone and attitude were welcoming and indicated he was interested in providing a good client experience. He was wonderful.

I agree with that assessment. I've given up thinking the average escort is ever going to make proper use of the word "dominant." If I had a dime for every time I've read phrases such as "I have a dominate personality," I could have retired years ago!

 

It's also rare to see "you're" peroperly used as a contraction for "you are" and instead the possessive "your" often surfaces (e.g. "Your going to have a great time when you hire me.") As you state, those errors are easily overlooked if the correspondence at other levels (particularly the phone call to formally set up a meeting) depicts a professional and courteous individual!

I don't think poor grammar necessarily means someone is stupid. It can be hard to fill out the text area of the profile and remain succinct and still give enough information to have guys want to contact you. It's really a "you can't please all of the people all of the time" situation, so I hope that most clients have a little bit of room when they are making judgments on an escort's ad. That said, I do think the tone and "feel" in ad text are important, and, to me, poor grammar indicates you don't care much about how you come across and you find it easy to dismiss details - and, to me, the difference is in the details.

I agree with you Eric, words are only one part of the escorts presentation. The overall tone and demeanor is what stands out to me more than the actual words. And of course if he includes his 10" cock pic, I'm sold even if he is as dumb as a pet rock....

You're a shameless size queen and that's why I love you!

I'd make this distinction: escorts who have poor grammar because they (a) are probably uneducated, (b) are uneducable because they are not intelligent enough, or © have a poor command of English (as their second or third language).

 

The first category does not bother me, but I am not going to hire someone who cannot follow and understand a complicated role play scenario. Ditto for the third category.

 

The ad attached to the OP seems like category (a) to me, and so I'd consider him, unless further conversations suggest he is a (b) or ©.

Jeeez you guys over think this shit. Now an escort has to have perfect grammar and know how to properly construct a sentence?...

 

For me it's another one of those non-issues. I care more about what's in their heart, how they treat me, how they treat others, their integrity. Having the proper education has absolutely nothing to do with a persons character. If some twenty-something kid can make me feel twenty again, then I'm all in. (The exception being of course our very own @stevenkesslar ) ;) God knows he ain't twenty, but.....http://www.boytoy.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/drool.gif

Any grammatical errors seen here are because I'm basically an uneducated twat...:D

If you want perfect grammar, that will be $500 hr, but maybe you can HAGGLE ?

LOL...The boys would love that. I can hear it now..."Oh I would normally pay you your full fee, but you did mis- spell discrete, or is it discreet, oh I forget, but anyway, that's a deal breaker for me, so how about knocking off twenty bucks"

Equating the inability to spell with "intellectual deficiency" is very common, but is as meaningful as equating ignorance with stupidity.

 

There are many subjects of which I am almost completely ignorant, e.g., the curvature of Reimannian manifolds, which may be described using the curvature tensor given in terms of a Levi-Civita connection and Lie bracket:

I know little about this field, but that doesn't indicate intellectual deficiency on my part.

 

Similarly, few of you could pronounce "Gabh mo leithscéal, a dhuine chóir. An bhfuil Gaeilge agatsa?", let alone translate it. You're not intellectually deficient--ach, níl Gaeilge agaibh...is as Meiriceá sibh, is bocht a liom a rá libh. If you can...Dia duit! Is as Éirinn tusa. Conas atá tú?

 

I'm really forgiving when it comes to spelling and grammar because everyday English is in a state of orthographic and grammatical collapse. People don't know how to use who/whom, I/me, there/their/they're, ought/aught, were/we're/where, practice/practise, its/it's, and your American misspelling of colour, honour, and such amuses me to no end, but all that doesn't mean people are intellectually deficient. Lazy, yes. Ignorant, almost certainly.

 

I have four criteria when shopping: do I find him hot?...is he a nice guy?...will he do X with enthusiasm?...and, most importantly, what's the price point?

 

On the other hand, I don't think I could hire someone who was noticeably intellectually disabled, because it would feel like I was taking advantage of their disability. That happened once with a stripper at Flash in Toronto. Cute, really built, meaty cock, sweet, eager, but just a little bit beyond the "he ain't the sharpest tool in the woodshed" point. It brought out the protective daddy in me, and sexual desire just evaporated.

 

Please forgive me if I've been preachy.

Wow! Here I was wondering if anyone would even have any interest in the post.

 

I'll briefly state why the ad is such a turnoff for me. When I meet with an escort, I like to take on the role of inferiority and being subservient.

 

I'm sorry, but I'd never be able to block out using the word "are" instead of "or" and maintain my mindset. If, as one poster suggested, it was a mere translation error from voice-to-text, then the fact he couldn't make the correction before posting (nor correct it in all the time it's been up), speaks volumes to me.

 

Just my opinion, but if not a translation of voice-to-text error, this is no mere common grammar error. This exhibits being eaten alive with a terminal case of the dumb ass and unparalleled ignorance that is damn near incomprehensible, particularly from someone using such terse wording in supposedly wanting to attract business.

As someone else said I'm more turned off by his attitude than his grammar - though the writing is very poor.

If it's obvious that it's English-as-a-second-language then I would certainly cut him some slack.

This escort says though that English is his primary language. How then can he confuse "are" with "or"? Is it from voice recognition? Regardless I'd still proofread my brief ad. I don't like picking on people but I would not be inclined to hire him but mostly because of the attitude.

I really like humor and a friendly tone. My favorite hire (before he retired) had well written, funny ads that he updated regularly - I looked forward to reading them.

Who else has great ads? Off the top of my head I like Zach Brown's.
