There is an entire genre of cam girls (in Japan IIRC) that will have dinner with you.  There are lots of lonely people in the world, and they are more likely to die than people who aren't lonely.  I'm not saying that people who make these videos are saints or anything, but it's probably doing more good than harm, and doing it in a way that society isn't dealing with yet.  

WEBN, a local radio station in Cincinnati, Ohio  came up with this, Brute Force Cybernetics was "We create a need, then fill it." The station began referring to itself as "The Lunatic Fringe of American FM" ...

Sort of sounds like the same thing!

No judgment from me, I just find it interesting that these kinds of things exist and are so big in many places in the world. Who would have thought you can make a living from eating dinner.

There's been a sort of 'revolution' of late that gets called 'business model innovation', which you may have heard of.

It's a phrase that is trendy but lacks a commonly understood definition, however the best one that I have heard of is when you take a traditional business model and you turn something that used to be a cost into something that is a source of income.  

One example of it is Ryan Air.  Traditionally, airlines have to pay to use the airports they fly to, but Ryan Air approached the second largest airport in any given city and negotiated a deal where the airport pays Ryan Air to fly there instead of the largest airport, turning the airport from a cost to a source of revenue.  It works because Ryan Air bring passengers to the airport it wouldn't normally have.

In the case of the cam-girls, they're not really doing business model innovation per-se, but they are taking something that was traditionally valued at zero (having dinner) and combining it with things that are valued (time with a cute girl).  

The basic idea of business model innovation that is frequently used is to take something that hasn't been valued previously (like your house while you're away) and creating a mechanism where it's sold to someone who thinks it's worth something, so maybe it is business model innovation.  Anyway, some people have it and want money, some people have money and want it, and the internet is a free economy, so it works :)

Escorts have been paid to have dinner with old, rich creeps for decades if not centuries. It's nothing new. 

In fact some would say it is the oldest profession.  And it is a lot more honest than much of the modern world...

i find that to be a soothing sound lol

😉

There's lots of links between very different types of sounds, including the sound of a train on early Jazz music..  http://www.wbur.org/radioboston/2017/01/19/trains-jazz at about 75% of the way through.

Edit: or this example where the album starts with the sound of a train and it is included until almost the 4:00 mark when the music fully takes over.

This is an absolutely wonderful album, one of my all-time favourites.
