A bus driver who tried to rape a passenger at knifepoint chose the wrong victim, a court heard yesterday.
The woman, an off-duty US navy sailor, knocked the knife from his grasp, broke it in two, bit his hand, wrestled him to the ground and put him in a stranglehold between her thighs.
Having beaten him into submission, she left the bus and reported the incident to her commander.

To everyone that asks Suicide Girls or Gods Girls. To anyone that’s thinking of modeling for them. To anyone that’s curious of my experiences with both of them.
Warning: This is very long.
Suicide Girls or Gods Girls.
Honestly, I don’t even think the two should be compared. Not only are my experiences drastically different, the two sites are completely different. Gods Girls is alt-porn and Suicide Girls is soft core porn.
So you want to be a Suicide Girl. You watched one of their movies or one of your friends talked about how hot they are or you’ve watched Radeo get super well known. You apply and you more than likely get an acceptance e-mail a few days later saying things along the lines of “You look perfect for our site” “we just need a few more things from you”. How exciting. Now you submit a set and you’ll most likely get another acceptance e-mail. But don’t be fooled, you’re just a Suicide Girl Hopeful now. In this acceptance letter you will also find out about the exciting $1,000 prize for the set contests they haven’t had since 2008. You’ve now been given a free membership so you will now find out that the set you’ve submitted is by no means up to the site’s standards. But it’s already in the queue for member review so you can’t delete or edit a single picture. Since just about every set that gets submitted is accepted for member review, the queue is often weeks, if not months long.
So finally, this set you were once proud of is available for all of the site to see and now start the comments about how poor the photography is, which you most likely figured out if you took a second to read the thousand posts in the hopefuls group. Embarrassing, right? Well you’re now stuck with those pictures on your page for 90 days.
Most of the comments will suggest you find a staff photographer to take a set for you. There most likely won’t be one in your area, so you’ll contact the closest one. They’ll tell you how gorgeous you are and how excited they are to work with you, they just have a few fees. There’s a fee for taking the pictures, there’s a fee to edit the pictures, and there might even be a fee for the location. $500 later you’re ready to shoot that flawless set that will surely make you a suicide girl. Wait a minute… Did I say $500? I sure did. How much do you get if your set goes live? $500. You will make nothing. And I didn’t even include the cost of transportation or clothing. Most often Hopefuls lose money.
The photographer will tell you how great the set looks and how sure they are that this set will get purchased and you’ll become the next suicide girl. But the set will sit in member review for weeks, earning the site money and not you. You’ll then try to figure out what could possibly be wrong with the set that the site wouldn’t want to feature it as the set of the day, AKA purchase it. You may decide try again with a different staff photographer. And thus the cycle continues.
I have seen beautiful girls submit set after set that are essentially flawless and they never get picked up. They get absolutely nothing but false hope from it, and maybe even a bruised ego because their beautiful set is not good enough. I think it’s bullshit that these girls have to submit naked pictures of themselves for the site to rate and comment on before getting paid. And even after going through member review, some girls not getting paid because hundreds of comments about how they should be a SG, were not enough.
Being a suicide girl used to be about being this bad ass confident hot chick with artsy nudes. Now it’s all about how well the set fits their criteria. The sets are oddly looking more like playboy with the occasional facial piercing or tattoo. This is a general statement. I know there are girls that have sets that are more alternative, but it’s definitely less than half.
So I’ve heard everything you can think of about Gods Girls. That it’s a trashy wanna-be-Suicide Girls. That you won’t get as much recognition as a Gods Girl. That the pay isn’t worth it.
Yes, Gods Girls does pay less. But in reality, not really. I was on SG for two years, submitted 6 sets and guess how much money I made? -$350. As in, I lost money. Gods Girls is straight forward. Your set is accepted, your check is in the mail. I’d much rather a smaller check than a check that might come some day once my pictures are “good enough”. But that’s why I’m a Gods Girl.
SG doesn’t necessarily give you more exposure than GG. There are literally thousands of Suicide Girls. There are a ton of Hopefuls. Most of these girls are all submitting amazing sets. It’s super hard to get yourself noticed. GG is less popular but a few well known porn stars were GGs. I’ve been a GG for a little over two months and I’ve had an article written about me. That’s a lot more than I can say for the two years I was on SG.
If you’re still not convinced, I have a few other points. Aside from mayyybe getting paid the set you submit to SG has some guidelines. Members will complain ‘Ugh ANOTHER bed set?!’ so you’ll have to come up with a better place to get naked. You’ll be discouraged to submit a black&white set, have a classic pin-up theme, wear wigs, hats, or sunglasses, spread your legs, hold or touch yourself, have close ups of your vagina, or wear stripper heels. You’ll be encouraged to have a creative theme to the set but there are hundreds of girls all submitting new sets every day, how likely do you think it will be that your set will be unique? I’ve seen girls attack each other for “copying” their idea.
On Gods Girls the models are submitting sets they take themselves (DIY). It’s more intimate, there are very few guidelines, and the model has complete control of the style. The quality of the sets vary because each model is taking their own sets. Gods Girls is a porn site. Penetration, holding, touching, and close ups are all allowed and encouraged. This does not make the site trashy. At least all the models are getting paid as promised.
The process to become a Gods Girl is also completely different. First you have to be accepted. You fill out an application and send a variety of pictures of yourself. Not just anyone gets accepted. Most of the girls have applied more than once before getting to the next step called purgatory. In purgatory you’re asked to fill out a survey and an introduction video so members can get to know you, as well submit some pictures. I don’t think you even have to include nude pictures. Members and models will vote yes or no. If you get 60% or more of the votes, you’re a Gods Girl. If you don’t make it you can try again. It’s really simple and straight forward.
Another reason why I love Gods Girls is the way you’re treated as a member or a model. On SG hopefuls are treated like crap. Some SGs are condescending because they have the title and you don’t. Hopefuls are constantly accused of doing everything to get more comments or votes on their sets. You can be attacked for accidently posting a question in the wrong place. On GG there isn’t any of that, in fact it’s the opposite. The GGs that have been around the site for a while are super helpful and inviting. There’s hardly ever any negativity. Everyone is just genuinely kind. When’s the last time you heard that a SG donated a set to the site because they love the site so much? I’ve actually never heard that. However I hear about Gods Girls doing it all of the time.
But I’ll still hear ‘But Suicide Girls has books and movies and they get asked to be on TV’. Do you know some of the girls featured in the books had left the site? They don’t get paid extra to have their pictures used. Yes, they do have movies. Did you know for one of the movies 13 of the girls were lied to in order to film genuine reactions for a horror film? Coincidence or not, most of those girls are no longer a part of the site. And honestly, there are thousands of girls, the odds of you getting to be a part of their next movie is ridiculously slim. Probably for the best!
I’d also like to point out that you can not make a living out of modeling for either site. It’s rare for a SG to have a set bought more than once a year. Even the really well known ones. SG is exclusive meaning if you’re a SG you can not model for certain things that are viewed as competition. GG is not exclusive, you can model basically anywhere else, except of course SG. But making a living by modeling for just either one of them is not going to happen.
I’m sure I’ll get tons of ridiculous comments for bashing SG. But everything I said here was based on my experience. I didn’t make anything up.
If you’re too lazy to take the time to read what I’ve said, I’m a Gods Girl and I fucking love it.
See for yourself, sign up for Gods Girls for $5.
bringing this around again because it seems quite a lot didn’t realize how shitty SG truly is.
this should really be required reading for every hipster/scenester/alt/etc girl who wants to be a model… please don’t make SG your venue.
