Ooooh, fabulous!

Dear Ramon, Act fast! This job was posted less than five minutes ago, and we think it’s a good match for you. If you apply now, you’ll be one of the first candidates. You may even catch the client while they're still online!...



The ghost writer must be an expert in gay erotica, alpha/omega books and male pregnancy. I will ask questions about these dynamics to ensure that you know what you are talking about...



I mean, really. Does watching the first 20 mimutes of Junior count?

Hey Mods - since your colleagues are recruiting for gay erotica and male pregnancy ghostwriters and announced that thorough questioning will take place, they obviously have to be experienced in these fields, how else could they screen? Therefor I don't quite understand why my post was deleted.


LOL - "male pregnancy" - whaaaat??? :'D

Isabelle - I have the same question but I am not sure if I am ready for the answer! 

Talk about niche writing!

Thank you for your patience.

It didn't offend me personally, although it might have done if I was from a religious country. This one was funny, however, there are some posts for 'erotic' jobs and websites sometimes getting through  that contain references to practices that even the most liberal (perhaps especially the most liberal) would see as distateful.


Seriously, Upwork recruiters accidently recruited for a job that's in violation of the TOS? If this was one of us freelancers, we would've gotten kicked off the platform instantly. It truly terrifies me to know that this calibre of staff is singlehandedly in charge of my success and fate on this platform.
