Some of us ladies work our asses off. Well one ladyseriously gets paid to work hers off. And not how you think. Jacki gets paid to fart, or as I like to call it, foof, for a living. I kid you not.
Jacki is a producer of farting videos. Her videos, which are posted on various fetish-exclusive sites are downloaded and paid for by hundreds of consumers.
In an interview with Vanessa Chan, Jacki says the videos feature her in various stages of undress, farting noisily into the camera, fulfill a niche community of men who get off on women farting. Yes, men actually get off on women foofing! One word, Gross!
According to Chan, Jacki's foray into the world of fetish started in 2003, and as most things do, innocently enough. Jacki, at the time a fairly prolific ballet dancer, wanted to sell a pair of twice-used ballet shoes on eBay. She put them up for online auction, and the next thing she knew, a torrent of foot fetishists were engaged in a bidding war over her shoes. Surprised but unfazed, Jacki quickly recognized a business opportunity, one for which she would become globally famed.
From 2003 to 2007, Jacki periodically sold fetish items on the internet: shoes, socks, used underwear (yes, used underwear is sold as a fetish item outside of the infamous Japanese underwear vending machines!).
Then in 2007, Jacki got sick with a rare lung disease and needed a transplant. While waiting to get on the transplant list, and then waiting for an organ match, she lost her job and the medical insurance that went with it. So she decided to make the fetish world a full time job.
She transitioned from selling fetish items, to making videos. Her specialty, farting.
So how does she do it?
She tells Chan, "Kashi cereal. I had some this morning, and now I've got so much gas!" she groans. "Raw cabbage will do it too, but who wants to eat raw cabbage?"
But more importantly what man would pay to see a woman fart?
"They could be any guy in this bar. My customers represent the whole broad spectrum of societythere are weirdos, normal people, dads, boyfriends, white, black, Asian it's a bell curve, a cross-section of society really."
"One client told me of a particular moment when he was at a birthday party and some girl farted. For some reason that imprinted in his memory and as an adult, he has always been turned on by farting women."
