    All men pay for sex, whether its paying prostitute or taking a girl out for dinner.

    Women are all the same.
    Absolutely. Well, not quite...99% of them are the same.

    It's the oldest profession in the world, anyone who tinks all 'escorts' etc are 'whores' are frankly immature and ignorant.

    Paying for sex has been around longer than everything else, thus more people have paid for sex than most other things. Yet people seem to think it is so 'secret' and 'dark' and wrong.

    Lol, shame your clearly not clever enough to realise that that is in fact a perfect example of the true definition of a generalization. It doesn't take a genius to realise that.

    Bless, maybe some year 6 English classes could help?

    By paying for sex, the woman won't actually care at all about you or your pleasure. She'll only care about the money she gets. That's why it's completely pointless.

    Yes, I did think of that! And to be honest I think I've met (shagged!) maybe a couple in my life who weren't like that, but they are in a very tiny minority!

    That's akin to saying that no-one you spend money on or with cares and that's clearly rubbish. Some will, and some won't. But ultimately, it doesn't matter. I hate to make it this clear, but when a man pays (in the direct sense!) for sex, he is simply paying for the use of the woman's body. So he quite frankly won't care whether the woman cares or not, or whether she feels repulsed or not, or how she feels or thinks at all.

    It's not akin to it. I can see where you're coming from, but prostitutes and escorts are only in it for the money. Most of them have to earn the money to live because it's their day job. So, yes, they clearly do only care about the money.

    Do you think most of them want to screw creepy, old men?

    Whats the view generally?

    Morality aside, I'd say sex is just sex, what two consenting adult do, is not for others to judge.
    Prostitution should be legalised, taxed, and heavily regulated. Just like that, there's no more pimps, no more prostitution-related violence (barring a few run-ins with licensed bouncers), and no more nasty diseases.

    We're so close to shedding this childish, religious code of morality in this country. Just a few more steps till common sense wins.

    I need the girl to want me. I'm too conscious of the idea that prostitutes only do it for the money, to the degree that it doesn't appeal to me.

    I did play cards with a prostitute in Vietnam though ^^

    Anyone who works is "in it for the money"!

    No, they don't want to, obviously. No more than people want to stack shelves in a supermarket.

    But don't you get this simple point? As long as the man (creepy, old, or otherwise) has the use of a vagina, they largely don't care whether she's "in it for the money" or not. As long as they get what they pay for. Just the same as I don't care if the checkout girl loves her job or not.

    Some women don't understand this simple point. It's because their emotions are so involved in sex, they think that men only want women who love their job (or love them, or the sex, or whatever)!

    I can't stand the thought of having sex with someone who wasn't enjoying it. I'm pretty sure that notion would make parts of me wilt.

    Don't generalise. Also, thanks for the knowledge that I'm probably a better lover than you.

    Fair enough..but most men using prostitutes won't care (because they know the woman isn't enjoying it) and yet continue anyway. I'm not generalising...and you're "probably" not "better" than me in any way, shape or form. People who think they are "better" almost certainly aren't. I don't even know why you said that, maybe you're mentally not all there?

    Women normally do..and the reasons are well known. In simple terms, they hate the fact that men have an option of having sex without being under their control, financially or otherwise.

    Here you make a general statement about everyone who holds a profession. I call it untrue because I've met a fair few people who are in low-paying jobs that they love when they have the option to be in higher-paying jobs that they'd hate.

    Here you make a general statement about everyone who uses prostitutes. I call this untrue after seeing interviews with a brothel frequenter and his regular prostitute.

    Here you describe a particular behaviour as something that women do. I accept that you use the phrase "some women", but you seem to have forgotten that another gender exists, complete with this same flaw.

    (Original post by baffled_mathman)

    Here you make a generalisation about everyone who has ever considered their abilities in any given field to be superior to another's. For example, I believe that I am "better" at spotting your generalisations than you are.

    (Original post by baffled_mathman)
    I don't even know why you said that
    Because your generalisations made you come off as ignorant, and your last paragraph reeked of a belief in female inferiority.

    Do what the **** you want, its your life. Men understand it but women don't as they don't have much of a sex drive. If a mancan't get any anywhere else, why the hell not

    It always winds me up when people say this. Of course it isn't the oldest profession. What did they get paid in? Food? Protection? Then hunting, farming and fighting were the oldest professions, non?
