Cash For SexPage 1 of 12    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)
Any woman who takes money or material items in exchange for sex is a prostitute. I only have sex with men I am attracted to and with whom I want to share my body. I've never charged for sex and won't start now. And I hope no imbecile comes on here and says that lame statement about all married women being prostitutes since they are taken care of by their husbands. A marriage or relationship is give and take and both sides should share and contribute equally to it's success.

While no one has ever left cash on the night stand for me, it doesn't ever come free.

I don't think that a bj is worth $60 in the first place. Maybe $6 at most.

By definition, that is prostitution but I don't believe that consensual prostitution is really to be looked down upon either. Sex, just like any other good or service, receives its value from supply and demand and as long as women keep the supply low and the man keep demand high, there will be prostitution. As ironic as it may be, it is the reality of our current society.

The only kind of sex that isn't to be considered prostitution is one that is offered by both parties without any strings attached. Women(or men) who exchange sex for a dinner and a movie, for attention, to encourage a certain behavior, for favors or for commitment are prostituting themselves just as well; and they will usually be the first to throw stones at the ones that do it for cash.

At the end of the day, their both adults and are free to do whatever they want with their bodies. And while I do get a bit turned off by it, it's not something that could condemn someone for either.

The gal that did the 60.00 BJ ..........was his total capitol investment for the day/evening 60.00 total or was he required to wine and dine her also? Hell, you can't go out to dinner unless it's Mickey D's for less then 60.00. If she was in the "Must Do" category he may have received a super deal....LOL

IMO if it's taxed, certified by the health dept. as is the case per the legitimate brothels of Nevada then who the hell cares? I've not heard any word on CNN of lay off's in the Nevada brothels.

With all the stimulus packages available......maybe the brothels have also jumped on the band wagon. Sure, why not bail out the brothels.......Spend those American Dollars, not only by spreading legs but by spreading the wealth as well.

ok Here is another question to all the woman here who have high morals and adding on to the OP question.


Have you guys seen indecent proposal? Would you consider that as prostitution?

What if you were offered 1 million dollars for a night of sex? Would you consider it? Please be honest

Of course, it is prostitution... just very high end. And again, I don't care what the man offered, if I wasn't interested in him enough to WANT to sleep with him, then no amount of money, gifts, etc. would change that.

And regarding Msg 21 from TheDevilsAdvocate:

Umm...but everyone is a prostitute.

Not true. The definition of a prostitute is as follows:
1. One who solicits and accepts payment for sex acts.
2. One who sells one's abilities, talent, or name for an unworthy purpose.

Neither of those definitions pertains to being paid an honest wage for an honest day's work or for a painting you created, etc., as your post suggests. The operative phrases here would be 'payment for sex acts' and 'sells... for an unworthy purpose'.

Re: Msg 51

EDIT: And yeah. A million dollars? I'm pretty sure ANYONE would accept that. ]
Everyone has a price.

reveal1k, just because YOU have a price, don't assume we all do. To some of us, our self-esteem is priceless and being able to look at ourselves in the mirror without disgust far outweighs any monetary benefit that may result from performing in such a manner.

Re: Msg 57

The funny thing is, that once it become known you've been selling you body.... for the most part, you can't give it away afterwards.... no demand....

m_church, you are soooo right with this statement.

ForumFilly - just to play Devils Advocate #2, how about we change some things. Heck, a million dollars doesnt even buy a nice house in some places, so maybe thats not enough incentive. What about a billion $? You and your family could do anything for the rest of your lives. And what about act itself? Your definition of prostitute says a sex 'act.' Fondling your breast, even with clothes on, is a sexual act. For a billion dollars would you let someone feel your boob?? Sure would be hard to turn down being a 'prostitue' wouldnt it?

To further muddy the waters, what if the act is sexual ONLY to the person asking? A shoe fetishist might get very aroused by putting shoes on a pretty womans foot. So would you let him put a shoe on you and 'prostitute' yourself for a hundred, or a thousand or a million dollars?

I'm not picking on you at all; sometimes I just like going into the grey areas.

OT - Yeah, $60 for a BJ sounds like shes a hooker to me...

"Any woman who takes money or material items in exchange for sex is a prostitute."
So does that mean ' well if I make love to him tonight, he'll agree that we need a new washer' or for him ' if I make love to her tnight, maybe she'll let me go fishing with the guys'. Why can't you just make love to show your love?

newblue, I don't have anything against men or women who prostitute themselves for sex. I've known both male and female prostitutes and as long as they are not being forced to live that lifestyle, then it's fine with me. For ME though, I have to be able to live with myself and my actions. I have made numerous mistakes in my life that I wish I could take back, but cannot. I have never prostituted myself, nor would I ever, no matter how much money was involved. I've had money and I've been poor, and having money does NOT make you happy. To me, loving and liking myself, and being happy with who I am, is much more important that any amount of money.

And I like to play devil's advocate also, so keep asking the questions!

Um, DevilsAdvocate, I must assume from the screen name that you're trying to provoke.

You've taken a pretty empty linguistic strategy of distorting a commonly used and understood definition, by expressing it's elements as vaguely as possible, such that the definition no longer serves its function and now englobes all kinds of activities that have nothing whatsoever to do with the activity the definition was supposed to address.

Construction is not prostitution, sale of art is not prostitution, s*x after dinner is not prostitution and marriage is not prostitution. Even serving in elected office is not prostitution (well, at least in a literal sense).

The s*x act warrants so much special attention because it's the s*x act. Human beings happen to be wired that way. That's part of the reason why there are so many of us around. We also have, well, a few millennia of cultural and religious conditioning to the effect that those who sell s*x are persons of degraded and inferior status, and if you do not think that you share that conditioning, please tell me the reaction your mother would have if you were to proudly announce at a family dinner a career change to become an escort.

This same strategy is what the so-called s*x worker rights movement is trying to do. Just call it work, and then it becomes a legitimated rhetorical strategy to attach the 'dignity' and cultural baggage attached to work, to prostitution.

And as for sleeping with the guy who brought you dinner, well, that behaviour pattern has a much longer evolutionary history with our species than prostitution (or money, for that matter).

Damn if it wasn't that important to us then we would never get married or go on dates we would just hang out with the guy and have fun. If it wasn't for women we would all be gay I could be gay if it wasn't for haveing sex with a guy. Then your just hangging out with the guys. Not for me I like women. I love p***y . I had my wife now my ex everytime she wanted something I got sex befor she asked. I would get it for her is that Prostitution??????

Holy f**k!

Sex is the closest two physical bodies come to complete oneness, next to mothering.
It is sacred to some, and religious to many.

If an individual adores the experience of sharing a most intimate dance with others, are very skillful in touching painful and neglected places in a Loving way, respect the delicate boundaries and sensitivities on all levels and wish to share this gift with many different individuals, how can it be judged as a destructive act?

Does not the most intimate act of specialized spiritual communion require a sustaining contribution by those wishing such gifted expertise to bless their lives?


In fact, it likely is the dry and sharp energy of judgment, expectation and ignorance that causes the real damage and blocks out the most beautiful and natural life that wishes to live between any two beings when they come together, in one way or another. Sex incorporates polarities and plays with them.


Happy Holyday

This is my first time posting.And I just have to agree with your position.Most smart men have a saying,"Pay for it now or later" My experience is it is normally less expensive to pay for it up front.

I think there is nothing wrong with prostitution. Not my cuppa, but any exchange of money for sex only is a form of transaction.

Whatever you feel comfortable with.

What a bunch of pompous obnoxious people on this board. Who cares what consenting adults do in private. If someone wants to walk another's dog for a fee, fine, or clean their house for a fee, also fine, or perform sexual acts for a fee, also fine. It's not the business of anyone what others choose about sex. And this childish name calling of whore and prostitute, get a life. Sex has been exchanged for money and power since Adam and Eve or haven't you noticed all the decrepit rich old men with beautiful women on their arms or Madonna's latest boy toy.
