    With the looming second round of global lockdown due to Covid-19, how do Computer and Technology fare for this event?

    high demand.... sold out.... i'd say if there is any sectors that do well, it's the Agricultural industries, the computer/technological industries and the porn industries.

    one doesn't need to know anything about it to know that when it comes to the sex industries, that with majority of the population being locked up, they're going to find any conceivable way to satiate the wants/needs.

    What i do know is that statistically speak last i checked because i find it amusing/interesting, is that women starting about 6 years ago, started to dominate the consumption OVERALL.... while still remaining the top contributor. However starting march of 2020, the amount of women contributing skyrocketed and continues to explode each day.

    Curious how many feminists in the know that are having kittens about that situation as more and more women fall into that line of work, exiting so many prior occupations. Granted i can certainly understand the appeal of frankly working from home, have no real overhead expenses since the tools needed are mostly part of a typical household these days.... and potentially raking in boatloads of cash simply enjoying one's own comfort so to speak.

    I was joking when asked how to YOU know about porno industry. :)

    These are some interesting observations @Judas . About contribution.

    I have never judged any of these situations, same as prostitution. Cases are all different and can not be equalized (not that you did that of course) .

    You are authentically correct! In fact, small businesses turned to technology to survive the pandemic and aside from that, I also knew from here http://macessitywebstore.com/2020/05/05/four-key-roles-of-technology-during-the-covid-19-pandemic/, how technology playing the most significant role in our battle nowadays.

    Any attempt to prevent such a career path has always ended in it still occuring and usually with less sanitary and safe conditions.... we know such a market can exist in a legal manner and be very reliable and function with the rest of society just fine per some of the other countries that actually employ it properly. Amsterdam i believe is one and i also was of the understanding that Australia as well? Anyone involved require frequency medicals and background checks as well as the people paying for it too in order to keep people safe..

    But that isn't working out in todays situation.... so what could be more safe than working from your own home with zero physical contact in the first place with a far greater market.

    I know of one stripper that has been forced to find alternative methods to make a living and apparently she seems to be happier now that she's been forced to use a laptop/computer in order to put herself out there. I would certainly understand putting "stripper" on one's resume isn't likely to help get you hired among the countless others all looking for jobs in order to fill their faces at least let alone keep the roof over their heads. In fact it's about the only way men have been able to get somewhat of a tick on the list dominated by women in such a industry. Either way, it's quite interesting i think considering.
