Who needs porn sites when you've got tumblr these days.

No idea how the porn industry makes a profit at all.

Do you ever worry that a copper might be your next grindr hook up?

Just curious.

Not worried there might be a fake profile out there?

I think the same with Tinder and others. I dunno, never used any of them so curious.

Not really no. I only respond to the white dudes. Most are visitors. After some chatting it's easy to suss them out. The married ones, for example, who are a major no-go for me, as are the money boys who are pretty easy to spot.

Qatar is similar to the UAE. Keep it behind doors, nothing will happen. They're not interested in two white expats hooking up. Not worth the effort, not worth the headache (embassies involved, DM headlines).
