We hebben inmiddels genoeg gelezen en gehoord over de Chinese en Koreaanse bedrijven waar hard gewerkt wordt om geld te verdienen in virtuele werelden door het verzamelen van waardevolle objecten (farming). Prostitutie blijkt voor sommigen echter lucratiever...;-)
"Perhaps the most unique use of a â€œfemale characterâ€ was by Rob Conzelman of Philadelphia who wrote of his own experiences as a â€œcyber whoreâ€ for Dragonfire magazine. He explained that he tried his hand at â€œgold farmingâ€ but was frustrated by the amount of game time needed to acquire even a small amount of game cash. Plundering and pillaging dungeons and cities was not enough to get him the money he needed so instead he resorted to the worldâ€™s oldest profession â€” prostitution. He went to the largest cities in the World of Warcraft where he stripped off all of his female characterâ€™s clothing and positioned her in front of the citiesâ€™ inns and propositioned players to have a good time upstairs. It is surprising how many players actually took him, excuse me, her, up on her proposition, and she soon made much more money than she could have done tramping through dungeons."
