    A lot of people in Portland are very unhappy with Suicide Girls. Check this link: http://www.apneaticmedia.com/

    Yes, in the process of the Suicide Girls explosion, a lot of good people I know got screwed out of a lot of things. It’s become just another money-first, people-last corporation. Somewhat sad since at face value, it appears to be a great and inspirational idea.

    That is too bad. I have heard some things about being money first…but, that seems to be thrown at any business that makes money by some people. I have heard it often enough from people who aren’t like that (like CRC), that I wonder what exactly they do. Any examples, thoughts on that?

    This harassment stuff is rather crazy Mirage.

    What gets into companies/people when their purpose in life is to make someone else unhappy? Learn the golden rule jerk-offs.

    They also pay their models a measly pittance, ripping them off completely for their work while forcing them into unethical contracts. Also, it can hardly be considered an ‘alternative’ sex site when 99% of the models are skinny, white girls. Not very revolutionary. Or even interesting.
