I’m still laughing…I read an article last week in one of the online news reporting sites about a new book on economics, called Superfreakonomics. In the book, the authors discuss the issue of prostitution in today’s economic climate. As it turns out, prostitution was a profitable enterprise (focusing on mainstream sex acts) until the sexual liberation movement in the 1960s changed “the business of intimacy, and a generation of ‘free love’ altered the marketplace forever.” The “modesty traditionally displayed by women in search of Mr. Right evolved to a bold pursuit of Mr. Right Now.” The 1960s genesis of casual sex became prostitution’s direct rival.
So, prices for sex acts plummeted. Hookers had competition from the average woman who would have sex for free (without even getting a dinner out of it). Being entrepreneurial, hookers then began to provide more unconventional sex - the kind of things men can’t get from their girlfriends – and the price for those often depraved acts hauled the fees way back up.
As one call girl said: “Thank God prostitution is illegal, ’cause if it weren’t, I wouldn’t be making $500 an hour; I’d probably be back doing what I was doing, which was working as a computer technician for a Fortune 500 company.” Of course, if you’re the prostitute for a state governor, you’ll probably get lots of media offers!
The call girl entrepreneur who was interviewed was asked whether or not she would suggest this “career” for her daughter. She obfuscated like crazy, saying she hoped it would be only one of many, many options, and then the article ended with the revelation that she’s now quitting prostitution to go to school to study economics. I guess morality finally caught up to her.
This is why I use the term “unpaid whore” for women who shack up with guys, rather than dignify themselves and sexual intimacy with a marital commitment. I tell them that at the very least, they ought to be paid for sex, since it ultimately means nothing profoundly important to him past the orgasm. Now I can mention that they are taking food out of the mouths of prostitutes and their families!!
Women cannot run away from their true nature, and our true nature (apart from any psychological problems) is to nurture and nest. We can act like wild women and say it’s our right and freedom, but I take the calls every day from disillusioned, hurt women who did, in fact, expect love and loyalty from the men they had sex with.
So, ladies, have pity on the call girls and prostitutes. Give them back their turf, and re-elevate womanhood so that men again have a mountain to climb and earn, and therefore value.
