Here’s a list of easy ways you can scam money out of idiot men online
by Amanda Ross
I'd never call all men idiots because that would be ~misandrist~ and also because I'm not trying to get doxxed by 4Chan. But what I will say is when it comes to women they wish they could fuck, most men become kind of total idiots.
We as women have to put up with a lot from them. Wage gaps, sexual violence, workplace harassment, fuckboys (less bad, but still!) etc. And if we have to deal with all that garbage from a population of shitbag dudes, the least we could do is try to scam a lil something out of the situation, you know?
I've asked IRL/online friends and coworkers to tell me their money-making tricks and there are (unsurprisingly) a ton. Kind of amazing what dudes will do for a snowball's chance in hell at touching boobs.
Here are the best ones:
Become a 'Findom' over Twitter
There are some guys whose entire fetish is giving you money — I'm not kidding, they love to be financially dominated. Both my coworker and I have just tweeted into the Twittersphere that we wanted money, and our DMs were filled with dudes begging to send us Amazon giftcards and Venmo cash in exchange for us being bitches to them.
You can either tweet out into the void or search hashtags like Findom, Pay Pig. It works on Tumblr, too. And the best part is you don't ever have to meet these people, exchange info beyond Venmo, or anything.
This dude just paid me to tweet this picture to y’all and expose him as a sissy so help him out and RT pic.twitter.com/2NV0d4aXq5

Take some weirdo's chastity key
One day, I got a random DM from a guy begging me to take the key to his chastity belt. I guess it's like some form of cucking or whatever??? I don't know the sexual specifics, but basically he got off on not having the key to unlock this ungodly cage around his balls and I was all too happy to oblige.
Some man on Tumblr is asking if he can mail me the key to his chastity cage OMFG should I say yes for the story?

I told him to send the key to some random P.O. box address and Venmo me and he did! Then I tweeted about it (because looool) and a bunch more guys jumped into my DMs and asked for the same thing:
He was sexually satisfied or whatever, I didn't have to look at anyone's dick, and I was $100 richer. Iconic.
Allude to some false promises on dating apps
Earlier this year, a girl went viral for putting "Send me $5 and see what happens" in her Tinder bio. I don't know what the guys thought they were getting for $5, but to them it was obviously worth it because the money came pouring in. Babe writer Caroline Phinney tried it out herself and made $55 right away:
She wrote about it for us, and it was such a hit that to this day guys hit her up to send her money for it:
Calling men idiots for money is the real American Dream. The Statue of Liberty could never, tbh!
Get paid in cash to go on dates
There's this website called What's Your Price? and it's like an auction for your time. Upload a profile and name your price for a date (around $150 is a recommended amount) and guys pay it.
You get the stuff on the date paid for too, so you walk away a little tipsy with a full belly and money in your account. This girl in New York makes $15,000 extra bucks via the site, with some guys paying more than $300 just to hang for a few hours.
Be a 'virtual' sugar baby
They're few and far between, but there are actually sugar daddies who don't even necessarily need to meet you. On Seeking Arrangements, there are well-off guys who are content to send you a monthly stipend in exchange for chill email correspondence (nothing sexual) and regular selfies you would have posted on Instagram anyway. People are lonely, and we are aaaaall too happy to email some rich, dumb baby boomer for that sweet, sweet skrilla. I'm so sorry I said skrilla, I just wanted an alliteration here.
We asked girls for the biggest relationship red flags they’ve ever seen, and now I never want to date again
Love is HORRIFYING
by Katie Way
We've all been on a few dates with someone before we discovered something that stopped us cold in our tracks and made us buy a one-way ticket to Ghost City. Maybe your prospective boo was "into politics." Maybe your would-be lover asked you if you wanted to go to a Meghan Trainor concert. Maybe you…
We asked girls for the dumbest reasons they cried while hormonal and now I’m crying too
‘I cried because the sky was beautiful’
by Katie Way
We've all been there — in a situation where normally, we'd be faintly annoyed, but with the added bonus of a veritable tsunami of estrogen. Sometimes, you just have to cry it out, am I right? Whether it's that Sarah McLaughlin commercial with those sad, abandoned cats or the Chipotle employee fucking up your order…
How often should you shower? An investigation
It’s time to be honest for once
by Ari Bines
Most people I know say they shower every single day, which makes sense because that's what we've all been trained to think from our parents washing our asses in our infancy. However, this is real life where we don't live in an episode of Sex and the City and the characters have 72 hour days…
