I have never wanted sex badly enough to part with greenbacks for it...push comes to shove, that's what my hand is for. As an aside, I drive through East St. Louis IL and Venice IL periodically on business, and I swear, the street walking hookers are the most used-up, nasty, crack head/meth heads I have ever seen...the thought of getting within 10 feet of those skanks makes my skin crawl.

I have never seen a first-rate hooker, as far as I am aware, so I can't comment on that part of the market.

Oh, you part with your greenback one way or the other. What do you think a date is? Dinner and a movie is at least $100. So, say you go on 3 dates and get nothing, that is $300 plus puting up with maybe some wierd issues the girl has. This way, sex is a certainty and you dump her at the end of the night.

LOL! Don't forget flowers. $20 at least. You just have to figure out a way to get paid to get laid!

If she was first rate, and I was single and bored what the heck. Beats wasting $100 in a slot machine.

Although being in college one doesn't have such problems...

I'm split between Mike and the other side. St. Ausustine is supposed to have said: Prostitutes are to a city what a sewer is to a palace; without a sewer the palace would become infected and foul.

OTOH, I've heard of neighborhoods that had brothels that operated outside the law by bribing police. Residents complain of their daughters being solicited by Johns in the vicinity. A guy looking to buy sex begins to think that any good looking female on the street might be game.

Having driven cab in Oakland, I know too well where the hookers hang out. Some nights, before Jerry Brown was elected Mayor, they'd be swarming. Daytimes too, little less volume. Walking up to car windows to talk bidness while school kids walk by. Jerry clamped down pretty hard. Now it's the older, more desperate ones you see.

I used to wonder why the song, House of the Rising Sun, had the lyric about it being "the ruin of many a poor boy." At first I thought it was because it was originally written from a woman's POV, and women do sing it: "and it's been the ruin of many a poor girl..." and they just changed it so it would make sense with a man singing it.

Now I think it can ruin a man too. You waste your time, money, and your sexual energy on stuff that will go nowhere, guaranteed.

Wow man, that's like, poetry or something Isn't this kind of how all laws work? Er, trust me when I tell you I get to see evidence of a lot of prostitution--but not in my tree-lined, two college, fenced in neighborhood.

No need to get cliche about Amsterdam. I have two high school buds that live in a houseboat on the Amstel river--used to get there a good bit. Most of the people I know in Amsterdam either moved there because of the laws or are proud to live in such a liberal, hands off manner. Almost none of them ever spend time in the Rossebuurt either. My point is that while Amsterdam is a beautiful city, the red light district, along with the heroin addicts, AIDS patients and other crap that walks around in the open there is not evidence that 'legalizing' or tolerating works. You can't own a handgun in Amsterdam, think that has anything to do with lack of street crime? Ever check the bike stealing statistics? They don't arrest people for selling pot (too often) there, you think that means the trade doesn't flourish? How about the Smart shops? Ever been to one of them on one of your many trips? And on, and on, and on......

Never tried their services, but read articles on the "escort/prostitution" phenomenon in Vancouver...some of them appear to be decent ladies...trying to pay their way through university/school...others are trying to raise kids...then there is the other side of the tracks, where some ladies just need the cash for drugs and alcohol...

I can't believe 15 would, 20 wouldn't. I would not, never, ever, for so many damn reasons.

Well, we prostitute ourselves daily. It is just a job. The difference between me and a hooker is that we trade different things for money. I work at McDs and ask "Would you like fries with that?" because they are paying me money. She works on the street or as a call girl and gives you sex for money. Different commodity but for the same reasons.

Also, what about in the past when the girl married not for love but for a roof over her head and food? Isn't that prostitution too>?

A couple of girls I went to school with turned tricks. Both said they made a very good living and both went on to be professors.

What do you mean in the past?

BTW anyone notice we're not getting any sex ads on the page?

OK, it is more prevalent in the past than now.
