We found this article on this facebook fan page of Society's Choice...we decided to post it on the 4 cities and let you all know how some people are idiots and have no idea what they are talking about. "Research"...PLEASE...they claim to have talked to numerous models and they just were afraid to give out information because of fear of losing their "jobs"...well to this we say...BULLSHIT
We are still in the fight to make everybody know there is real people in this industry and the objectification of models in society is still there, the fact they categorize models as junkies, or escorts or stupid...well, bottom line, THIS PISSES US OFF...so hear us ROAARRR!!

“THE MODELING WORLD ...EXPOSED”Written for the readers of Society's Choice
The following article has been written after much research and interviews with many models and agents in the industry. All the people interviewed have asked to be anonymous for privacy.
I wanted to find out what really goes on behind the scenes of this glamorous world and the facts that have come to light are quite shocking to say the least. Here are the ugly revelations:
The Life of a Male ModelThey are able to have a much longer career but very few of them last more than two years in the industry. I found out that straight men in male modeling comprise of about 25% of the total. Many of them cannot cope with the crazy partying and attention from the female models etc. and burn out fast. One of the models I interviewed told us that not long ago as he was sitting at a bar, an elegant forty seven year old married woman approached him and after a couple of cocktails invited him to her room and offered him ten thousand dollars to have sex with her. He had never done anything like this, but realized that this was easy money and although he hasn't done it since, he said he would have no hesitation if he was offered the chance again.
70% of all models turn to stripping and prostitution to make ends meet. An average stripper in a big city club can take home $500 to a $1000 in cash every night without any sex involved. However, if they want to make more money by selling their bodies the rewards are unlimited. Many gay male models will also sleep with women for money.
Drugs are everywhere in the industry and a lot of the models become very addicted and snort coke heavily on a regular basis to keep their partying lifestyles going. Many models party every night and a lot of them sleep with multiple partners. There seems to be very few monogamous relationships in the industry. This lifestyle takes it's toll very fast and thus a large number of the models lose their looks quickly. Very few models save any money as many of them don't come from affluent educated backgrounds. They seem unable to cope with the huge amounts of cash that come their way and end up blowing it as fast as they make it.
The Life of a Female Model
Female models have a very short lifespan in the industry and the age they start is becoming younger and younger. 70% of them either already have eating disorders when they start modeling or they develop them in the constant pressure to stay thin. Bulimia and Anorexia are the main Problems. 60% of female models are bisexual and many of the rest experiment sexually with other women.
Becoming a successful model seems to be attributed a lot to luck and who you know. It also seems that a lot of the successful models have to sleep their way to the top. The attitude of "I will scratch your back, if you scratch mine" is very apparent. The percentage of models who do make a career and a living out of the industry is close to just 5%. However, the ones who do make it are richly rewarded. The savvy models who went to college and are business minded, are a minority in this business. If they are able to capitalize on their good looks and brains, they end up having long and successful careers after their modeling careers are over.
One fact we learned is that all pictures, without exception, used in magazines etc. are heavily touched up because the quest for perfection is endless. Very few models enjoy what they do and they are often treated badly by their employers. Many of the photographers use their power to take advantage of the models to get sexual favors from them, in exchange for some help rising to the top.
95% of all models waste the best years of their life barely making ends meet while trying to become the next super model. Many of them are from poor eastern European countries and they come to the USA to experience the American Dream. I suggest all you budding wannabe models should think carefully before entering this profession. The fame fulminates intensely but the reality is very different!
Like we have said in interviews, no industry is perfect, and yes there has been drama and problems within the model industry, but why is this community so judged? Because they're good looking people...maybe ugly people are just jealous and they decide to judge, or TRY to judge and make problems where there are not...
To that we say BULLSHIT...how about talking about writers and editors of magazines, lying on their articles, been caught cheating on their wives, rehab, stealing, etc...oh wait they don't judge them much because they work in other industries? How about politicians involved in scandals with drugs or home abuse, oh yeah they make ONE news story about it and then they forget about it, and they praise their children when they say they want to become a Senator...
Every industry has its flaws, why attack the model community with this over and over and over again??
Well now we are here making a stand and we are fighting this stupidity of people around the world...
