Porn stars have Amazon wish lists.

Here's a funny little sub culture I've just discovered thanks to Charlie Sheen having HIV. A former girlfriend of his, Bree Olson, was in the news today, saying she doesn't have the virus. I had a look at her twitter page and it turns out she does have something else - an Amazon Wish List.

As well as being a former Sheen Queen, Bree is also a former porn star and as I've learned today, the first thing a girl does when she's edging her way out of the porn industry is get an Amazon Wish List. These women have fans who want to, I assume, connect with them. If that connection can't be through penetrative sex then what's the next best thing? Buying them some Trader Joe's Roasted & Salted Sunflower Seeds for $8.52 of course. I'm not joking that is on Bree's Amazon Wish List which she has put prominently in her twitter profile for her 1 million followers. Should $8.52 feel a bit of a stretch then they could get her some McCormick Freeze Dried Chives for $5.43 or if they're really feeling the pinch they could get her some Downy Fabric Softener Sheets for $3.07. A small price to pay for the thought that Bree might use them. Richer fans of Bree might like to splash out on a table tennis table for $403.99 or even an iPhone 6s for $939.99 - to be fair, I think you can get a better deal on that one elsewhere. 

If you're thinking this is wishful thinking from Bree, you're wrong. There is the option to look at items which have been previously purchased for her. Right now there is someone having a wank at the thought that Bree might be using the 200 Melitta Basket Coffee Filters they bought her. And that's not all! There are dozens and dozens of things her fans have bought her. Someone got Bree a Great Smoky Mountains National Park map - and then presumably went there, hid behind a tree and waited for her to arrive. People have bought her dog food, extra heavy flow maxi pads, one dude spent $200 on a Nordstrum Gift Card. That's the most expensive purchased item I can find actually so there's still a chance to announce yourself to Bree - go on, get her that ping pong table!

Bree isn't the only one doing it. It's very popular with the stars of a channel which boldly goes to one of the few places the BBC remit doesn't cover - Babestation. A quick twitter search tells me that one of their roster, Ruby Ryder (real name?) has one. One thing I found interesting about Bree's list was how absolutely nothing on it related to sex but yet she was still making a killing. Ruby on the other hand does have a few leather corsets and the like but then you can, if you want, buy her a fish tank. 

In searching for Babestation girls with wish lists I discovered a conversation between Ruby and one of her fans. He was asking her to follow him on twitter. She said one of the only ways to get her to do that was to "buy me something good from my amazon wishlist. lol". I wonder how that ended for him. I'm guessing in the most self hating wank of all time. 

Well, this has been an educational half an hour or so delving into a weird world. Educational and expensive! I've just spent a fucking fortune on these ladies. There's only one way to claw some of that cash back and that's to start an Amazon Wish List of my own. I'm not famous though so the only way people are going to buy anything for me is if they get a real kick out of it. That's why my list will consist solely of edible underwear.
