    2) People do not pay £200 for dinner and conversation, the site may say otherwise, but if you hire an escort you expect sex. You have got to be horrendously naive to think that it would only be a date you would be pressured into sex. And once the company finds out that you have 'unsatisfied' customers they will ditch you.
    This, multiplied several times, emboldened and italicised for emphasis.

    What's wrong with prostitution anyway?

    Morally, you're fine =]

    Morally you are cheapening the suffering of thousands, many of whom are children. Prostitution is a sickening trade and anyone who willfully goes into it is quite frankly a disgusting person.

    there is nothing wrong with prostitution.

    and morals are a bizarre concept anyway.

    there is everything wrong with how dangerous the work is. and there is everything wrong with the belief that *anyone* has a right to sex, regardless of what the other person (worker) really wishes.

    You have to be careful as always when meeting strangers.

    The dinner date thing is not prostitution. You get asked out, hopefully wined and dined, meet someone interesting and get paid.

    I was asked out once and went. The meal and the conversation were so good I didn't care when he forgot to pay me...but then being a gentleman he called me immediately and came to pay. We're still in touch as friends and have been out since. He's a really cool guy, very successful, well travelled, charming, utter gentleman.

    ps: This is not escorting and NO SEX or anything physical was involved.

    it WILL be prostitution. as in, you will be expected to have sex. and £200 is *alot* for dinner and sex.

    regardless of what you go into it for, the men will have different ideas. which could place you in a dangerous situation.

    the reason why the website does not advertise people as sellign sex, is because it is illegal to advertise it in the uk. prostitution is perfectly legal, as long as it is a private negotiation. advertising it, selling on the street, running a brothel or other premises is illegal.

    so please, do be aware, sex will be expected from you.
    No, sex is NOT expected. At least the website I used. It was not sleazy in any way.

    great cos i'll be imagining the gorgeous clothes i'll be buying with the money!
    You're not the same person that posted the other day are you?

    Anyway when I first read the thread and you said you were strapped for cash I imagined you were dying of starvation. If by strapped for cash you mean you cant afford a new designer coat then :facepalm:

    If a guy pays £200 for dinner he will want sex! He may hear you when you say no but he will still think he can persuade you as the night goes on. How much money will it take before you give in? £500? £1,000? £10,000 £100,000?

    Also there is the possibility someone you know will use your service. What if a family member or friend wants to 'hire' you?

    If you can cope with all of that then fine but I really don't think it will be as glamorous as you think.

    Somehow I don't think every encounter goes exactly like that, however real it may have been.

    prostitution is a sickening trade, which at its core is about the abuse of people, and trade in people.

    however, this does not mean that the prostituted people, or those within prostitution are wrong/bad etc.

    in a five country and nine country study, consistently the *majority* of prostituted people (around 90-98%) wish they could leave the industry immediately to work in another sector. however they stated there was not the means to do so. they stated every time they were workign they felt as if they were being raped.

    this does not sound alot like choice to me.

    what we should be attacking as predatory are the beliefs held by some people that they have a right to buy sex, buy people, buy children. as no-one has this right... we should also be attacking those who trade in people, and profit from this trade, such as pimps, pornographers and traffickers.

    Abuse, of course, is wrong. Forcing people into something, such as prostitution, is wrong. But the actual act of prostitution, exchanging money for the service of sex, what's wrong with that?

    I wouldn't do it myself, and probably wouldn't be any good at it anyways, but if someone wants to try it, honestly and professionally, then why not?

    I am not saying people who have no choice are bad, I specifically said that those who willfully get into it when they obviously have choices to gain 'gorgeous clothes' (extra disposable income) are bad people imo.

    I find it morally objectionable because it sets up an attitude that it is okay to pay for sex. they may get a professional who wants to first, but next time they want it they wont give a damm. The type of person who pays for sex is normally the sort of person who wont care about the opinions, motivations and background of the person selling and when nearly all prostitutes arent there by choice its kind of hard to see 'the brighter side'.

    btw prostitutes have a higher rates of severe PTSD than combat veterans.

    given that he keeps asking me out, has taken me to and tries to get me to go to swish places, i think he's more than happy!

    I got paid £80 an im a guy. I didn't do anything, she probably spent £160 that night on giving me wine and dinner. She just wanted to talk to someone who doesn't know her.

    Dunno guys are slimy so be careful, but i recommend it as to get money, just don't make a habbit of it otherwise you'll suddenly become trapped and your £2000 a night for dinner and sex will seem more of a good idea until you hit that guy that really is going to take full advantage of you. Then its bad.
