There's an article on isaaclikes.com about the darker side of male modelling, it probably ties in with this thread well: http://www.isaaclikes.com/2010/09/14...male.html#more

Quote:
And then there are the creeps – predatory men who offer money and fame in exchange for sexual favours, and who have the power to kill careers if scorned. The drugs and drinks flow freely up the noses and down the throats of vulnerable boys barely old enough to drive. It’s a self-perpetuating cycle. If one says no, there’s always another waiting to take his place.
Quote:
“The industry’s too fickle not to be fickle,” he explains. “It’s definitely a game. And the people who play the game do better than the people who don’t.”
Quote:
There’s another, far less palatable option available to young men who don’t make it, says Doe. ”I’ve known a couple of models who in Europe resorted to finding a secondary ‘red-light’ income to help pay the rent.” Raubenheimer’s seen it too. “A lot of the Brazilian boys get paid €400 per night to go have dinner with these older ladies and sleep with them. They can make €1600 a week, cash in hand.”
Quote:
“There was one in Milan who started shooting me, and then he touched my arse. I said, ‘Listen, that’s not my game. That’s fine, dude, [as a] one-off, you got your jollies…’ Then he did it again and I punched him in the face. I got thrown off the job but, basically, I’m not going to put up with that.
Quote:
“Modelling gives you a lot, but it can also take a lot from you. If you’re a strong person, then do it. Be realistic, know you’re replaceable and that ultimately you need to do something that you were meant to do with your life. A lot of people want and dream of it, idolise modelling even, when in reality they don’t mentally have what it takes to get a positive experience and become a better person from it. Like I said, you’re replaceable as a model, but your memory’s not.”

Last week, we posted the first two installments of filmmakers Sara Ziff and Ole Schell's Cut-exclusive, three-part mini-series about the modeling industry. Each webisode takes on a topic Ziff and Schell tackle in their documentary, Picture Me, which opened Friday at Angelika Film Center. Youth, money, and exploitation are common threads both in the feature-length film and parts one and two of the mini-series; the third and final segment, not surprisingly, investigates issues of weight, body image, and racial diversity (specifically, the lack thereof). Says Ziff, "At BCBG, I was struck by the homogeneity of the cast of rail-thin, tall, blond models. When I was one of the models walking in the shows, I saw the subtle differences between us, but it's eerie how similar the models look from a distance. En masse, they look like interchangeable, disposable clothes hangers not memorable individuals."
Models Vanessa Perron and Amy Lemons and journalists Derek Blasberg and Elizabeth Wellington all weigh in on the topics, which the tall, Caucasian Ziff admits she never gave much thought before now: "Nobody talked about it, and only recently have model friends opened up about the pressure from their agencies to prevent their young bodies from developing naturally."
Her big hope? That agents, casting directors, and other industry types who actually can make a difference will. "When I went on castings, sometimes I would see notes on my schedule specifying 'no ethnic girls.' If this happened in any other business, it would be grounds for a lawsuit," says Ziff. "But in fashion, it's considered a matter of taste."

It was details of the shoot that scared me in this interview with Sena Cech. Presumably burned the cornea of her eye.

I saw it here in LA. Tbh, I expected it to be better. It sort of just told people about models' experiences with pervy photographers, weight/age issues, and how much they make. I really learned a lot though, but it's a slow film.
