I'm a student at the University of Manchester. One of my old friends from school is also at Manchester. He is living with someone who can only be described as having a very clever business mind. He is 19, and runs certain adult websites (perfectly legal). In his own words he has come to university "to have a laugh".

Anyway, he has been very successful. Incredibly so, in that he turns over huge quantities of money. Unlikely? I thought so, so did my friend. But bank statements were produced, and seeing a student bank account in credit, nevermind the kind of credit on this statement, is a shock. And add to this the fact that a few days later, as final proof, my friends name was placed in the text at the bottom of the site.

But where am I going with this? This site (if you want the URL email me, if I write it publically a mod will probably remove it) is a free site, and lists galleries under various sections. A lot of males will be familiar with the kind of site I'm describing. The same males will know that with each gallery, is a one line description... which is where my job comes in.

I get paid 10p for each gallery I label. Basically, I log onto the site and on one half of the screen are pictures, and on the other half is a section for selecting whether it's movies or pics, and for writing a brief description. Thats right, I get paid to look at porn. 10p per gallery doesn't sound like much, but £15 per hour is very achievable. Working one hour a day, 5 days a week brings in a very useful £75 per week... eg my rent. If I need more money, I work a bit longer!

I'm paid weekly straight into my bank account. I can work as much, or as little as I want. And I can work at any internet connected computer, so I worked at home over the holidays even if using a 56k modem was painful. My overdraft and credit card bills are shrinking very quickly.

Sorry to gloat, but I couldn't resist! Hope people have found equally good work!!

Ta all,
Ed

He gets more galleries to label than ever get labelled. To all intents and purposes, they are effectively unlimited.

Poker is good, but I'd be a fool to turn down risk-free money.

Very good question! Basically, the galleries he lists are provided by pay sights who are in effect touting for business. Someone signs up for a month, pays $40, and he gets half (say). Also, his company resells sex toys in the US.
