Victorian prostitutes used to carry a hook which they used to pull unsuspecting gentlemen into dark alleys where these poor chaps had no choice but to have carnal relations with these strumpets.

I think the area of New York explanation is the more likely one, the other one is supposedly based upon the amount of 'camp followers' his troops had compared to other regiments. Perhaps it was just spread because of the original New York version. As for prostitues using hooks to drag men into alleyways???

Many years ago when I was a young innocent.... ;)

I found a book by Xavier Hollander....

The Happy Hooker

I found her tales of being a call girl rather exciting and titillating..

a kind of 70's Belle de Jour

I think it was the first time I heard the expression "hooker"

and never questioned where the word came from.

Of all the names to describe us I prefer that one.

Other than The Seamstresses Guild's 'ladies of negotiable affection' I think that I would go for 'fille de joie'.

I'd like to believe Mr N, haha, BDSM Victorian style! But have read of many other links over the years, mostly Joe Hooker. It really must have origins in procuring with 'hooks' of sorts, as all advertising does. Hook lines, bait, hook line and sinker...

Some are good products, some aren't. It's You who needs to read between the lines.

I discovered this book also in an old second hand book shop when I was 13, couldnt put it down, loved it. I thought to myself, mmmmm, that is what I am going to be when I am a all grown up and sophisticated. Unfortunatley by time I grew up ) I failed to achieve sophistication and B) I was convinced the only way to do this job in this country was to stand in darkened cold alleyways every evening so I thought feck that.

Once I discovered the truth I was gutted, could have been doing it all those years in the warm after all lol

Perhaps it comes from the fact that a lot of guys get addicted to visiting wg,s hence they are hooked.

I met the lady herself in Edinburgh, a couple of years ago, she was over for the festival, she now runs a guest house in Amsterdam.

I have to agree with you once again, Adele, in relation to the book at least. :)

I'm not too keen on the word being applied to you ladies though, as I find it rather on the derogatory side which in most cases is grossly unfair :angry:
