“I am one of the popaholic [sic] obsessed with watching videos of blackheads/pimples/sebaceous filaments being picked at or popped. I thought I give [sic] myself a holiday present this year and pop some pimples of my own. Only I don't seem to have any. This is where you come in. If you have pimples/acne/blackheads and would allow me to pop them I would be so extremely grateful.
I would pay you too. $45 an hour.
Please send pictures of what you would let me pop and your availability.
