The Woman Hired Over 90K Other People to Watch Porn for a Living Declares it 'the Best Job in the World'

It's often said that if you love your job, you never have to work a day in your life. And here is someone who's about to make that her reality.

Source - A young woman is being paid to watch porn after edging out more than 90,000 other applicants for the lucrative new gig which pays her $20 an hour — nearly three times more than the average minimum wage in the US.

Rebecca Dickson, 22, was selected for the plum role by ethical sex site Bedbible, which advertised for an “open-minded” applicant willing to stream hours of X-rated movies.

“It’s amazing. I’m still in shock!” Dickson declared in an interview with The Post, just days after starting her raunchy new role. “It really doesn’t get much better than this!”

As part of the paid position, Dickson — who is single — is required to gather data from kinky clips so that Bedbible can compile an “in-depth report about tendencies and statistics in porn.” The company hopes it will lead to a better understanding of people’s online preferences and practices.

Dickson’s first assignment is to watch Pornhub’s 100 most-viewed videos, noting the duration of each clip, as well as the sex positions that are featured in them.

She’s also required to clock hair color distribution, language distribution and the number of orgasms included.

Good for Rebecca Dickson. We can all be genuinely happy for her. Even if you're one of the other 89,999 applicants she was chosen over, common decency says you should tip your cap to her and congratulate her. It's not often anyone gets to live their dream. And even rarer to achieve this level of success at the tender age of 22. This is truly what America is supposed to be all about. 

So I don't mean to sound like I'm trying to kill her buzz, but I would like to offer a warning here. 

Be careful what you wish for. 

Sure, if you're a huge fan of porn like Ms. Dickson is, why wouldn't you want to make 20 bucks an hour doing something you do anyway for free. To turn your avocation into your vocation. If you love sewing or painting or wood carving, why not get paid for it? But that comes with some caveats. 

It's one thing to love your job. But that's just a short jump toward turning the thing you love into a job. To have it turn into drudgery. I mean, people who love kids often get into careers where they work with kids. People who love pets gravitate toward jobs where they work with pets. And as with any way you earn a living, you're going to have bad days along the way. It's the nature of employment. Days where you're just not into it. Your enthusiasm wanes. And you just wish you could take some time away from the grind. Which, in the case of a Professional Porn Watcher, is quite literal. 

All I'm saying is I'd hate to see a situation where Rebecca's love of watching strangers have sex gets ruined by the common, ordinary, workaday world of having to wageslave like the rest of us. Where she grows sick and tired of having to keep stats on how many step-family videos there are. Where the constant demand for clocking money shots and where they end up becomes monotonous. Where the need for her ethical sex site employers to know how many "amateur" videos are just professional ones lying to the public ends up disillusioning her. Where tracking the percentage of blondes, brunettes and redheads like porn SABREmetrician stops being fun, and starts being a crushing bore. Where you've seen so pizza delivery guy scenarios that they lose their magic. 

There has to be a limit to how many body parts you can see put into how many other body parts wears you down and takes all the joy out of it. And it seems like 40 hours a week, every week, is dangerously close to that limit.

Still, I hope it doesn't happen to her. And I say that as someone who also thinks he has the greatest job in the world. Which is talking about sports, pop culture, and people like Rebecca Dickson. All the success to her in her new career.
