Piece of Advice #2: If you're going to prostitute yourself, at least charge

There are reasons that prostitutes have historically charged for their services.  Prostitutes:

  • are in physical danger due to their extreme proximity to men they don't know
  • risk acquiring a sexually transmitted disease
  • risk pregnancy
  • have low value on the marriage market because men are not attracted to women who have had sex with many men.  This means they are more vulnerable in terms of their financial security in the long run.
Ultimately, I would advise women not to have sex outside of marriage so as to maintain their value among men they may seek to marry.  However, if you are the type of woman who wants or needs to have casual sex, prostitution seems like a more practical outlet because you earn money in addition to having sex, money that may help to moderate the above complications.  Additionally, business transactions require more direct communication about services to be rendered.  This means less confusion between men and women about the sex they are having, and no one need feel used afterward except the one who did a job and was paid for it.

  1. You do realise that prostitution is illegal in all states besides Nevada right? Also once you start, its a very slippery life style with the pimps and drug use.

    Young ladies should think long and hard about what they're getting in exchange for accepting the four disadvantages listed above.

    Being one means providing sex services for money.

    What women who enjoy casual sex do is the exact opposite of what prostitutes do. This attemp to shame those who engage in sex outside of marriage because they like casual sex by comparing them to whores, whose sole reason to have sex is to obtain cash is laughable.

    The exact opposite? ...Really? And "women who enjoy casual sex" is a bit of a mouthful --- there's a much simpler word. I'm sure you know it...

    "This attemp (sic) to shame those who engage in sex outside of marriage because they like casual sex by comparing them to whores, whose sole reason to have sex is to obtain cash is laughable."

    Well I sure laughed when I read it. ...Though primarily because Grerp was spot-on.

    And you have it backwards: it's more shameful for the whores to be compared to the amateurs...
