Is it the money? Drugs? or quick money?
Is it the money? Drugs? or quick money?
Oh so you mean what drives people to become prostitutes. Hmmmm good question....
After the 240point drop on the DOW overnight - I might have to give it a whirl to mitigate anicipated big losses next week.
The customer, 1) for relief 2) control ( self esteem problem)
Prostitute, all of your above Flying Fish but contemporary times drugs is that prime culprit of the street workers. When on the beat as a young plod, most on the street were single mums trying to survive. There was not the welfare support or public tolerance in those times.
In the big reputable establishments (among others) many are for example single professionls with other careers, persuing "the multiple streams of income concept"
I recently read an interesting book by two sociologists who had studied the 'profession' of Call Girls in Sydney. NB Call girls are a distinct species from brothel workers.
In almost every case, these women were considerably older than brothel workers and only about 10% had a drug or alcohol addiction. They had widely differing backgrounds - several were tertiary educated - and had chosen the life on the basis of the freedom of being self employed, and the excellent income. Some worked from home but most set up an apartment where they went to work. Few of them had had any problems with their customers, many of whom were professional people and regular clients.
About half the women in the study were in a permanent relationship and reported that their partners were 'quite OK' about what they did.
Only one woman said that she pursued prostitution as a career simply because she really enjoyed sex. The others said they switched off when working, despite giving the opposite impression to their clients.
The authors made the point that the girls who work in brothels or on the street are usually much younger and a much greater proportion have drug and alcohol problems as their motivation.
I know someone (female) who did that line of work for 5 years followed by working as a stripper and running various (non-sex related) businesses.
Bottom line - she's now worth an outright fortune and is one of the most stable, level headed people I've ever met.
Apparently, sex is the easy bit. Making serious money, by finding and keeping the best clients, is where the skill is (so I'm told).
oh boy - you hear this and you'd wonder if it's such a "great life"
I guess she made some money for her pimp
Interview with Kathleen S.; Oklahoma Street Prostitute
Kathleen is only 38 years old but the streets make her appear at least 60. She has had and given up 6 children during her life. Kathleen's only dream is to one day get off the streets, kick the drugs and be a wife and mother. When this interview was posted Kathleeen was currently incarcerated in Oklahoma for prostitution, assault and battery of a police officer and attempted escape
Personally I think its a clear case for Job Satisfaction.
I think the only person that gets job satisfaction would be the client.
...there is a sexual act with the word job in it and it usually satifies now doesn't it...ohhh stop it or you will go blind
Moderators you may edit this post and infract me with a red card if you wish
lol...I guess their are just different forms of prostitution....some a little more upper-class and acceptable than others, but when it comes to the crunch the above was also prostitution in disguise
ok I take it back. A mate is getting married and we will throw him a bucks night, with a stripper or two i guess lol
Lives in Sydney now though we are still in regular contact. The only "business" I've done with her was as a photographer taking a few "adult" photos for a poster (fairly clean shots - just a pose with no others involved).
Doing such photos is actually quite a lot harder than you might expect - sorry guys but it really is mind on the photo and off the girl 100% of the time and it's nowhere near as much fun as you might expect. In all seriousness it does qualify as "work" and yes I was paid for the shots.

They are offering a service. Their clients wish to buy that service.
The fact that a bloke chooses to pay for something which is somewhat unavailable to him elsewhere is no one's business, and does not classify him as unstable, whatever that means.
e.g. as I said in my original post, many of the clients of these fairly exclusive call girls were top businessmen, politicians etc, for whom the notion of an affair would be out of the question in terms of their public image. By using the services of a prostitute, no one gets hurt and no careers are ruined.
