'''Prostitute''

I just hate that word and would never use it as I find it offensive, albeit perhaps accurate - how do ''working girls'' describe their job though?

Apologies, was prompted by the "does your wife know you do this" thread.

Unfortunately bacchus so has everything. If we stamp on every thread that repeats itself we would be threadless. The down side of being around for a while is you have heard it all before, and I am not poking at you but all long term posters. I think a little room for newer members should be allowed if not just to encourage posting.

I 100% agree with Lou.... we have probably all been guilty of repeating threads when we are newbies. As for the word '"Prostitute", it has been around a lot longer than all of us, what is there to really hate about it. It is just a word.

Good one, though not very poetic.

In the US: ASP: Adult service provider (and equally void of poetry)

I can appreciate the description "WG", if used by Xenners (good memories there), or Floozy (Flossie, read that in an book by some old english writer). Both have a gentle air of adventure over them.

Paydate is not a bad description either.

I'd settle for "Companion" (and whatever happens between the companion and the client is up to them)

Any better descriptions out there?

Seamstress? (for the Pratchett fans)

Lady of negotiable affection?

Bacchus is absolutely right - all posters should use the search facility on a very recent thread and see if they have anything new to add. I doubt it.

Seriously though what's wrong with the word prostitute? It's no more or less derogatory as WG or sex worker.

Elderley person, senior citizen, old codger or geriatric? Certain words go out of fasion and become considered derogatory.

That said, I hate 'working girl'. My wife works very hard, but I don't get much in the way of sex with her.

we need to stop changing the use of words and using euphamisms when the proper term gets a slag offensive use.

If an argument's worth having once, it's worth having a hundred times :).

...A lady of the coinage.

Somehow it does not sound the same, from you Jkay, when "A Lady of coinage" was originally coined by Sunni Tara. (I think it was in 2001, or at least when she first time posted it). :)

Looks like he's been done to death too. Well, at least his patience has. :)

I would like to ask the guys, when you are looking for a woman to spend your time with (and pay for it), what do you type in Google? And to the women, do you use the word 'prostitute' anywhere in your website or directory listing? Just out of interest.

I know full well what I am (and I have no problem with it) but I rather prefer the word 'escort'. It does not mean that I think I am better than anyone else...I just think it just sounds a little more professional to use on my website, rather than 'prostitute'. Just my interpretation.
