I have been remiss. I haven't blogged in months and for that I sincerely apologize. It has been a very hectic year and I have been so focused on so many things I just have not been able to find the time to sit and catch you all up.
So, to catch you up. I finished my first year of my undergrad a few weeks ago! I am very happy to report that my grades were excellent, the experience was thrilling and I am greatly looking forward to first, a few months off, and then getting back for year 2. Student life suits me. I am very excited for more.
I want to take a minute to talk about the things that have been going on in the world of politics and sex work recently. I know that everyone has heard by now about the passing of the FOSTA and SESTA bills in the US. These bills are extremely concerning as they target sex workers in a way previous 'trafficking' bills have not and have already made life very hard for our brothers and sisters in America. On top of that, American politics have a trickle up effect. Here in Canada we've already lost access to some important sites for advertising and many of us are seeing our websites, online storage, media, and other online platforms disappearing. In short, it's been a stressful couple of months for most on North America.
I want to remind my lovely followers out there that, in times like this, screening is even more important. Those of you who know me know that I take *our* safety very seriously. The only thing as important as my physical and emotional well being is yours. So I want to remind you all that screening is so necessary because it 1, proves that you are who you say you are and 2, proves that I am concerned with ensuring our safety. Now is not a time to lecture us about your privacy. We know about privacy, we have no income if we don't respect your privacy. So please remember, if you're planning on getting to know me or any other provider, the screening process is not something you can avoid. As I have said many times before, a scammer doesn't care about your screening info, they care about getting to you as quickly and easily as possible. And LE doesn't care, because they will get what they need anyway. So please, if you have a problem with screening, maybe spending time with providers is not for you. Maybe you should try Tinder or some other option. You know I always appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
On that screening note, I've recently signed up for Paypal! Finally am I right? I won't be posting any info on my site so I ask if you are interested in putting down a deposit and are not a resident of Canada that you send me a message and I will happy provide a link for you.
Also, after the passing of FOSTA/SESTA some other changes were necessary. I am moving my site to an off shore host which will take time, so I will be sending that info out when I have it, please keep your eyes open for that. And I switched to encrypted email to add another layer of security for both of us. (I highly recommend you do the same sooner rather than later. It's as easy as signing up for GMail and there are even more options available to you if you are willing to pay a small monthly fee. Protonmail is my encrypted email provider of choice. But there are other options as well)
So. I can now be reached at email@example.com (for even more security, if you switch to encrypted email do not get an address that ends in .com or .org)
My GMail account is still active for the time being but I only check that account on occasion so please send any and all correspondence to my new address for a speedy reply.
Are you on Snapchat? If you are you should join me! For a one time donation of $40 you can have unlimited access to my Snaps! As the summer months lead to long days of free time I haven't had in a while you can expect to see more of me and my silly, sexy, smart self. So send me an email for more.
My schedule is already up for May, you can find it here of course: http://www.shalomharloe.com/#/calendar/
I will be announcing any travel plans before the end of the month so stay tuned my Loves.
Let's get together ASAP! and make the most of the sunshine!
