Looking for an Open Minded Women to capture theVDay moments!

My boyfriend and I would like to make a movie 2/14/2014. I would like for a women to record us. Doesn't have to be a pro I would just like to have the footage. It'll be a goodnight!!

Ps: this is my first time doing something like this.

Say what ya mean, folks. Say what ya mean. You're looking for someone to film a porn, and that's cool. We're fine with that, and we feel like you filming your porn is your business. But perhaps your ad is a bit confusing to the average camera person seeking a gig, no? And you wouldn't want anyone showing up unawares, now would you? That would make for one seriously awkward "VDay Movie," guys.

It also seems just a wee bit overboard to hire a cameraman (or woman) to film this whole thing when there are easily accessible tripods that are also inanimate objects and therefore do not require compensation or forewarning. But whatever. Do yo' thang, you crazy VDay couple. Just make sure you're spelling it out in your ad next time.

Local physician seeking men with penile curvature (Peyronie's disease)

Local physician is conducting a research study to see if an investigational drug can help improve the penile curvature and the bother associated with the symptoms of Peyronie's Disease.

Men who are 18-70 years of age are needed for a 10 month study evaluating a new treatment for Peyronie's disease.

Financial compensation provided

Medical studies are great. They work out the kinks (pun intended) for medical interventions before they're used on the general public, and they're obviously super-helpful in that aspect. So no qualms there with this ad.

What seems strange is that this ad was placed within the Craigslist job boards. We mean, it's not technically a job, right? When you're asked what you do for a living, can you tell people that you have your crooked penis resolved in medical trials? It just seems a bit difficult to explain in a word or two, unlike "receptionist" or "accountant."

Otherwise, carry on with whatever is going on in this ad. Just maybe move it from the job boards, where folks are looking for a j-o-b.

Seeking 1 more female for twerking video ((Houston) )

Ever wanted to have your own twerk team style video in HD?

We are looking 1 more female for twerking video to a few new hot songs (you choose) which will be shot profesionally

Send some recent pics of face and body and we will get back with you ASAP

Also not a job. And probably not the safest thing to reply to, either, but still. It's not a job, yet it's on the job boards. We like twerking, but very, very few people can actually make that work for them as a career. The world is limited in the number of twerkers that are necessary for it to continue spinning.

As an aside, if you're hell-bent on twerking for a living, please be aware that you can film that yourself, or with a buddy. You don't need to send random people on Craigslist your photos and identifying information for that to happen.
