I like that. smile

My mother named me after a fictional character that might possibly be considered a prostitute. Orphaned country wench type sleeps herself into the good graces of high society and thereby becomes a very powerful force to be reckoned with.

When I was old enough to read the rather bawdy book (condemned by the Catholic church for "indecency") my mom told me about this. She seemed almost embarrassed or worried that I might be offended. On the contrary, I was jazzed. Little bit o' hellfire in it, you know?

While having never been one nor having known any working girls personally, I have no idea what the realities of the profession are. However, a woman willingly offering sex for money (or trade of any kind) seems like solid mojo. Taking advantage of someone else's needs in return for personal gain? Sounds downright witchy. witch

A prostitute is a disease vector for the undiscriminating. I won't be going near one, though, so let them infect and get infected like mad for all I care. Even if it was legal I would keep my distance. Mix in the legal hassles and it's stupidity squared. Perfect for bible thumpers!


Stratification applies to this area too.

The crack whore turning tricks on the street can hardly be compared to the high class escort or the dominatrix (or any other kind who caters to specialised preferences).

The first group will never go anywhere, the second may actually be financially successful, meet businessmen and politicians and so on. We hear about it when they make important men fall from grace, so to speak, but we may never know what influence they had on the men who never got caught with them smile


I actually associate with a few pro dommes and escorts (both bio and trans women) and I have to say it does seem like quite a lucrative job. Most of them, however, are also successful in other areas of work, such as beauty, modeling, and writing. They are so not disease ridden, quite the contrary actually. They take very good care of themselves. I've thought about pro domming myself, but my career path is such that it would most definitely bite me in the ass later on.

I don't see why there shouldn't be some sort of prostitution among hunter/gatherers.

Gatherers?

In history of civilization, Western and Eastern, agriculture is recognised to be the first profession exserted.

Prior to being civilised, I do not think women had enough freedom or power among men, to charge for sex.

In most places, prostitution is illegal. The Church of Satan does not condone illegal activity, period.

As for legal prostitution, I'm all for it. Most of the problems associated with prostitution (drugs, physical abuse, no health regulations, etc.) are specifically due to it being outside of the law. And I speak as a satisfied customer of some legal brothels in Nevada.

The reason why feminists hate prostitution is not so much because they think it's "abusive to women". Feminists want men to be emotional slaves, and don't like seeing men having a simple and practical solution to a common problem (men wanting to get some action and willing to pay for it, and women willing to take money for the act).

Nevertheless there is a long tradition of referring to prostitution as "the oldest profession in the world"

I doubt that many people will say "Oh, you mean agriculture" when hearing the expression.

I have always held the unpopular opinion that stripping is empowering to women. They have the power to tease men until their balls turn blue, but they'll never let them touch (unless of course you pay extra, but that's only in some clubs). The men sit on the sidelines drooling and panting like pathetic dogs while the stripper gets the satisfaction of reducing those men to such a level. At the end of the night she goes home with a fist-full of money while the men go home broke. Now tell me, who's really being degraded here?

I'm not so sure that being a common street whore is empowering, but being a dominatrix certainly is. At brothels I imagine the women set the rules too, and have bodyguards to take care of anyone who breaks them.

There's nothing wrong with using ones natural sexual talents to make money. Denying a woman to do that would be truly degrading.

That's right. Many people are misinformed.

I remember going to a strip club once where they had a lottery of men's names from the audience. They'd pick winner every hour. This "winner" would then get on stage while two women pulled his pants down, covered him in whipped cream, made him get down on all fours, then crawl to the end of the stage while one of them sat on top for the taxi ride. My thought was "And this is supposed to be degrading to WOMEN?"

I went to a stripper joint once and I hated it. The room was smokey and the girls were "crack whores" who were average. Trust me seeing a stripper in a well lighted room would make you gag. Very few are good looking. So while it may seem "empowering" to the woman on the stage on a much deeper level I can't but help think they need the stage to make themselves "feel good" like a drug. Just my opinion based upon a one and only time experience.

A perfect case in point!

There's probably some truth in that. I myself have never been to a strip club, so i can't speak from any experience. I'm much more content staying at home and looking at free porn. I love the internet. grin
