Gay gardening- a good idea?

Unread postby Improved_Stu » 3 July 2019, 15:57

Hi everyone, I've struggled to find somewhere to get feedback on this weird idea, so I hope you can give me some!

I am a self employed gardener, and while everything is fine buisness wise, I'm thinking of expanding my gardening buisness to include a pricier "underwear only" option, as in I go do their garden in only my skimpy pants. Obviously will be discreet and seperately advertised.

I read something about a naked housecleaner service recently... . Seems legit, and hell I could use the extra money! I don't mind being slightly exhibitionist and at least I'd have a great tan, right?

Is this a good idea? Am I being an idiot? Is there even a market for this?

Cheers

Tbh i dont see this ever becoming a popular thing. But i think it would be more successful if you targeted older female client's rather then just the "gay" market.

You could always advertise this service on a small scale and see if theres ant interest. But i just dont see it.

Around here theres a moving company called college hunks hauling junk. Lol. Idk if there doing any good business wise. But tbh i havent seen one of there trucks around in years. Based on that i dont think there doing to well.

But its always good to think outside the box. :P

I agree with Victor! I'm sure there's a market for it out there, even if small, can be worth the extra bucks for the weekend!
But i just dont see it.
I can definitely picture older single guys being very into this! And older females like you said.

I'm totally with you there, popularity-wise. It's never going to be a big thing. But if I can make some extra cash doing what I do anyway, but a bit more under-dressed ... it kinda sounds like fun! As for the ladies, I guess that would work, I'm a bit more at ease with the guys though. I suppose eyecandy is eyecandy at the end of the day.

I think so, right? It feels a bit weird to be considering this as a thing, but If i can pull in some extra dosh, maybe stick an extra £10-15-20? an hour on... Its pretty tempting

Yep. But gardening? Ok, I don't get a lot of this gay thing, haha.

At pride, talking to the one guy's BF, yeah, he was way smoking hot!!!, asked him what he does for a living. He works as a tennis instructor. So yeah, the thought above was the first to pop into my head. My other thought was well I guess he'll make a decent living until the looks run dry, after that he might actually need some talent. Honestly, I don't think the clientele is limited to older - just they tend to be in a financial position to afford it. XD

It's gardening because that's what I already do. I'm good at gardening, I know all my plants, Latin names, landscaping and design etc etc. It's my career regardless. The general thought in my head is simply to do what I already do, but charge more for not wearing very much! (While I still look good enough to get away with it).

I am a nudist and my backyard is enclosed so others can't see in. As I am cutting, planting, pruning and etc. I am fully nude. When finished I have an outdoor shower for washing up, no dirty clothes to wash.

I mean, being as objective as you possibly can, are you honestly that attractive enough to be able to charge others for such a thing?

Chicks frequently make careers out of doing whatever on camera. Or I guess cleaning in a French maid outfit? Probably not that one so much anymore. But they don't need to be that hot.

I don't see it happening. The intersection between people who want to ogle a guy and people who legitimately need gardening is bound to be very small.

So we're requiring a legitimate need for gardening? I mean throw out some sad looking flower pots and call it a garden. Not like it's not going to be an pervy old guy being pretty obvious. The deal is the cash transaction for ... you label it if you want.

Oh, just like blacks get to use the N word. I figure I can spout "pervy old guy" freely, which is really kinda true about a lot of that crowd and I'm not talking about the blacks to be clear.

At the end of the day, yeah, that would be the clientele most likely to be interested. In my mind it would be legitimately gardening, and not a shag though, if that's what you're getting at.... It is tricky though. I'm glad I asked this question you're all giving me a lot to consider!

And I wouldnt really mind if it were simply an excuse for hanging out and ogling the body... I mean cleaning isn't really the point of a naked maid!

I was asking about him specifically, not about whether it would generally work. I really doubt a lot of those grotesque old walruses on charturbate are making any money. You’d have to pay me to watch tbh.

I thought this to but didnt say anything.

What is a gardener? Out here we have landscapers, landscape architect's, and florist. But none come and just snip certain flowers.

What do you do as a gardener? :D

Its just not a job out here at all. Most people do there own gardening or have a landscaping company do it. And landscaping isnt really a cute type of job.

I say it's worth a try. You wouldn't need a long list of clients choosing your premium service to make the idea pay off. The main thing would be to make it absolutely clear that you have a strict "hands off" policy. You offer eye-candy only to those who appreciate it. Require prepayment with no refunds for violating that policy.

I want to see be brochure you put out to advertise your new service...

Just stay away from gardens that include Amorphophallus titanum, or Phallus impudicus!

No, I did not mean to imply it was a shag. Not at all. I was mostly just joking around mostly.

I'm OK with it if you can make it work. Um, do consider the safety of constantly going to unknown people's places. That part is serious but also not judgmental.
