    This is supposed to be a really unpleasant job for both genders!!! The male actors don't get paid as much, there is pressure to perform, and apparently they end the day in quite a lot of pain down there. No thanks!!
    Yeah I heard that, and a lot of the male guys turn to the gay side for more money? Anyway im guessing they're full time! I meant only amateur part time work like it would ever happen haha

    "Imagine masturbating for 60 minutes sat on a chair in front of a group of people, then someone shouts 'come' and within 30 seconds you have to come".

    I can't remember who said that but it was one of the big names.

    I really to understand the term 'Unrealistic' and why it is so commonly used.

    Nothing's 'Unrealistic', if you want it, go for it, work hard. Don't quit. If you quit You'll never know....

    I've already discussed this with someone else. Many jobs are unrealistic as they require more than just hardwork and time.

    Many dream jobs require huge natural talent, luck and financial backing; only a lucky few have this combination.

    For instance Lewis Hamilton and F1.

    For many of us, now in our late teens/early 20s, this dream job is unrealistic and borders on the impossible.

    What? Euphemism for what?

    Nah, this thread made me think of Scrubs, the episode where JD dreams of being the Chocolate King when asked this question.
