Seriously, between this and people germing up my ice cream and arizona teas- I'm just at a loss.

What possesses a person to think any of these things are good ideas? And furthermore, why does this crap get to be so amusing to some that copy cats arise?

Dunno but me and my GF joked that we should set up an online store and start selling used socks and underwear...
The more I think about it the more it seems like less of a joke and more of a good business plan to make our millions.

You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cause it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment.

Some people will do anything they can to get as much attention as they can. It seems to be the mantra of the internet.

Sounds like some people haven't seen certain corners of the internet if they think that selling any of those things is at all new.

There is no such thing as a hobby without politics. "Leave politics at the door" is itself a political statement, an endorsement of the status quo and an attempt to silence dissenting voices.

A lot of these people are grown ass adults, so it's not just kids. The internet has allowed for people to congregate in ways humans seldom have. Crazy people can now flock to other crazies and we live in a time where they can have their own insulated communities irregardless of the distance separating them.

It is a non-word that only made it into the dictionary because of ignorant twits refusing to correct their grammar. It's right up there with "unthaw", "unloosen", "PIN number", and "ATM machine"

Nah man, in this case the old grumps are right - "social media influencers" and the whole culture surrounding them is genuinely a blight on civilisation. And their rampant stupidity and attention-seeking now frequently doesn't just humiliate or endanger themselves or their "fans", it's harming others.

At this point, I'd lay better odds on "social media moronfluencer licks icecream tub and puts it back, sparking a global pandemic due to antivax idiocy" being the cause of the end of the human race than I would on nuclear war.

All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

FWIW, I have long been of the opinion that 'vlogger' is less an occupation than a damning indictment of our society, but I'm also long of the opinion that the Harm Principle governs.

In what possible way is it even a little bit like sex work, let alone "essentially"?

Actually I'd surmise that in this one instance, internet sex work is light years safer than real sex work. I've a lady friend who does the whole camming thing to support herself through medical school. It seems to help her with her financials, but also keeps her for actually getting into a physical situation with some random dude that could make her sick or pregnant.

But this...this isn't sex work. It's the worst part of what I call "Thot Culture." Which in my opinion is just as sick and vial as the incels that spawned it in the first place.

After having companies making beer and cheese with certain bodily fluids this looks like an industry in the making.

It's sex work (it falls under that umbrella), it's another niche fetish. It's just that this is the first time this specific type of fetish got more mainstream-ish media attention. Somebody else has already mentioned used socks and underwear. My first instinct would be to wash dirty clothes so that's just not my thing but it seems to work for some people. I also don't understand furries but if makes them feel better and if they are having fun with it and causing no issues then where's the harm?

If her customers are willing to pay money for it then why not? For her it's healthier work than working in coal mines and probably even most regular service industry work (retail, waiting tables,…). As long as her customers get the advertised product everybody should be fine with that transaction. Let them do what they want as long as they are not harming anybody (else).
