Tip Number 1: While there are, indeed, 3,000$ an hour escorts that get to cahort around with the political and financial elites, you will not be one of them. You will be taking it bareback from an overweight, gap-toothed white guy for 30 bucks and a hamburger from checkers.

You don't have to be a prostitute, girls. You can be a cam whore and essentially simulate the same acts and get paid AND avoid all the nastiness of meeting johns.

Flashback time. Back in the before time, an acquaintance hooked up with the "village bike" and took her to McD's after. Apparently that was the most gentlemanly thing anyone had done for her in a long time. And she wasn't even a prostitute. She just got around.

The woman in the article isn't really the norm, I imagine drug addiction forces a lot of women into prostitution. Then they really don't care about safety and they end up being murdered by an overweight, gap-toothed white guy

"I don't shave my pubes or armpits, and some of my
clients enjoy that but most don't care. That's the strange thing
about mainstream beauty standards: in the privacy of their
own homes, no one's really that into them"

ah, no. I shave--you shave. This isn't France, hon.

Prostition should not just be legal, it should be government run and regulated.

Think of the possibilities!

- Safe work for the prostitues
- Lower rates of rape
- The IRS can get their money due through prolonged sessions in the 'interrogation dungeoun'

A close friend of my wife's used to be a working girl. She doesn't talk about it and I don't think I'm supposed to know (although she does openly talk about the work she did as a receptionist in a brothel) but my wife tends to be a biatchatty. She's married these days to the guy who used to drive her around when she was working so obviously he knows who he's married, and they seem if not happy then at least right for each other. If anything she wears the pants, although he'd disagree with that statement but anyone can see how they actually operate together.

She's smart, sassy and fun. Certainly not damaged.

Meanwhile I've certainly never been a prostitute, just as well given I'm a fat bald dude. I'd have starved! But I've had too many soul-destroying jobs. And I'm much less fun than I once was, and I'm more damaged than my wife's friend, and my poor career decisions are the major factor in this.

Point is, the article is right - you can't judge people for making their decisions if they can cope with the consequences, even if we find them challenging.

And one of the comments on the article page is also right. You can't ignore the literally millions of women forced into sex work around the globe who have a very different experience than Robin Hustle. Or, as at least one farker has pointed out, those stuck in addictions which make their decisions farking awful.

For my part, I've never paid for sex (at least not as a simple transaction). I couldn't possibly enjoy it. I've always doubted the partners I've had have been with me as a good decision, the thought they were only there because I had some space on my credit card would guarantee a complete failure of my manhood. But I do wonder if I had a time-machine if I'd go back in time and dish out the $300 to do my wife's friend. It might have been a sound investment. Pure speculation of course.

I think we can accept that the top shelf hookers have a slightly lower rate of HIV infection because they are not going to take risks and the ones that work for the elite agencies require regular STD screenings. However, these gals cost a lot of cash and are not called on by Joe Average. I sincerely doubt that a street-walker has a lower risk of anything.

The FA says that guys will have thousands of reasons why they don't want to use a condom. I have but one: sex with a condom is not worth having. It's like buying a foot massage, but not taking your shoes off. So, I don't have sex with people I don't know well. I certainly wouldn't pay money for the privilege of farking a condom.

The accurate use of stats reinforces rigid gender roles, just like those insidious American Girl Dolls, because numbers and math traditionally have been seen as the exclusive domain of white men. By intentionally and obviously distorting the "facts", she challenges and asserts her freedom from heteronormativity and patriarchy.

Also, every single one of the pros I've known have shaved. No exceptions, especially the guys. This might be the single weirdest part of the article.

Interesting article. All in all...I'm ok with this.

In just the same way that I don't or never have done any drugs, but still think they should be legal, I also think sex work should be legal.

This isn't even from some kind of libertarian perspective either. It just makes sense from a practical stand point.

Posit 1: A government will never stop people from taking drugs or paying for sex.
Posit 2: Efforts to stop people from taking drugs and paying for sex cost this country billions every year.
Posit 3: Legalization of both would lead to revenue, regulation, and the creation of two new growth industries.

Conclusion: It makes sense to legalize, tax, and regulate both the sex and drug industries.


As for this specific chick in this specific article...she sounds smart, funny, skilled and safe. There have been times in my life where I have settled on FAR less.

Ted Levine says, " I' d fark her." I might even court her in order to TRY and fark her. Said courting would most likely cost me a few dinners, movies, plays, or concerts with a combined price tag which would be well in excess of her going hourly rate. In other words, I would pay to fark her.

I tried that once, just to see.

Was fine, but $30 for 15 minutes of watching a cutie do what I ask (on a computer screen) is a bit steep. Probably also awkward for her, since video is one-way unless the guy pays extra.

My best luck was in the free "non-private" rooms, where a little gentlemanly flirting is appreciated.

Won't bother with it again, though. Too much free downloadable content. Oh, and real women are even more fun.

A friend of a friend (under a pseudonym, but I know who she is) wrote on her blog about her experience of doing a little whoring. She was in college, and wanted to get rid of a pile of debt. Her comment was that while it wasn't exactly pleasant, it wasn't much more unpleasant than doing call centre or fast food work, and it paid far more. You blow some guy for half an hour, and that pays as much as sitting for 8 hours taking shiat from people on the phone.
