Would it be a violation of any standards to just politely ask him to stop?

 No, it would not. And you don't have to be polite either.  He is not a "client" that Upwork should be upholding.

Probably, he would get mad at you. Let the fetish continue.


BTW, I have never seen that job offer but I guess it's because I don't look for English language jobs other than translation projects.

 

In any case, I am going to laugh really hard if I ran into it one of these days, guys.

"You will be asked to answer the following questions when submitting a proposal:
Describe how small 1 millimeter tall is."

 

Please make him stop...please!

I don't know if this is the same person, but I have just done a job search - only with "shrink". Interestingly I came up with some quite pornographic stuff that has slid past Upwork's ever-vigilant team. 

 

I have not reported it - because the new system of contacting CS takes up too much time, and by the time you think you can actually submit a request, you get a message saying you cannot submit it.

 

 

ETA:  The "client" does not hide his/her requirements the job post is headed:

Shrinking fetish erotica writer needed

 Perhaps it has been removed. But I can still find it . . .

 

A sort of now you see it now you don't. Perhaps UW has got round their own ToS by allowing the client private invitations (to his sexy shrink club).

I can find the job that has the words (both) "fetish" and "erotica" in the job title.

 

I notice that in addition to the client's apparent obsession with a woman who shrinks, he (?) seems to have a thing for pay rates that are rather small...
