For those of you not accustomed to the States, the idea of prostitution is pretty much a taboo. That they are going after clients with the express purpose of shame should be an eye opener and would be very careful punting here....

On the other hand, there are loads of good Korean massage parlors, something you don't see much of in London. Cops could pretty much care less....

Didn't know that New York is now criminalising clients.

The New York scene has been beaten down over the past few years. It used to be a great city for punting, at least by US standards, but now it is harder and harder. Many of the agencies are shut, and the parlors get raided from time to time. The best thing you can do is find a long-time quality independent and stay in touch with her.

Greetings from NYC- I'm from Europe but have lived here a long time:

Prostitution is illegal here (apart from a few counties in Nevada- not including Las Vegas, but I digress..).

NY ( along with most States) has always had the option to charge johns, but most operations solely target the girls- although there are plenty of cases of undercover stings focusing on clients, but here's the thing-

The NYTimes piece linked to in OP is primarily about a specific aspect of this case, viz: "The Manhattan DAs office is employing a sex trafficking charge". You can bet the authorities will come down like a ton of bricks in these situations <Gather the UK law permits for proesecution of clients in same circumstances- so long as they're 'aware'>.

But in 'regular' P4P set-ups, by and large the cops couldn't care less. There are several forums which can point visitors in the correct/safe direction.

I think it is better to go to a swing club or try to seduce a woman. I won't go to the States for punting. If I go (I have been there twice) it is always for other reasons.

The list of names of those who were arrested, scares the shit out of me.

But some people are more free than others. (I must think of the Animal Farm saying: Some are more equal than others).

I still wonder how the US escorts would do these things. There have been police stings against escort agences. And I am also thinking of other countries, Russia, for example, where prostitution is also illegal.

It doesn't surprise me that America has such conservative views about prostitution. They're the same about alcohol. NY in particular lost its sleazy image 20 years ago. Perversely I rather enjoyed it but I might be alone in holding that view.

US has always been more puritanical about stuff.

that's why they talk of tidbits, unlike the British titbits, and roosters instead of cockerals.

spose its the red neck bible belt lot :(

Which makes the US porn industry somewhat of an irony.

They openly make porn films by the warehouse load (or should that be whorehouse?), feature heavily on the 18-21 age bracket who cant even drink legally in the US, promote anal sex as if it was normal behaviour, hold glitzy award ceremonies for its adult film performers, yet you get busted for trying to buy an hour with a hooker.

Moral double standards of immense proportions, IMHO.

Yes welcome to the land of the free.

Still, I suppose the zero tolerance approach has its benefits in many areas in NYC. Been there twice, and would rush back. Found US immigration as welcoming as a dog turd on your lounge carpet.

If you are going to go for it....I found a great massage place that can be like what you chaps are used to here in London, save for the price (about $250) and it would only be OW. But the girls are hot and they parade 4-5 through your room and you decide. Lovely mamasan too. These are youngish Thai girls mostly, again also a bit unusual in NYC which is chock full of Koreans and Chinese.

Eh... of the free double standards...

In my opinion you are hitting the nail on its head. That irony is ridiculous in my eyes.

porn is made in california. NYC is a long way from LA

Thinking of the US as a homogenous whole is daft. It has as many regional differences as anywhere else.

I find it strange that only in Nevada prostitution is allowed, but I think it is limited. But the law is not as strict as in the rest of the US.

Aye, New York "cleaned up" 42nd street some 20 years ago.

I lived in NYC for years in my thirties, nobody even thought about prostitution, there are so many girls raring to go in the bars and clubs, it's simply not a tough place to get laid. The ratio is like 55% to 60% straight girls to straight guys and they are competitive.

For those with British or Australian accents, it's easy shooting, the yanks love a foreigner who speaks mother tongue.

I was in New York in 2004, and I remember that I was spoken by a female stranger. She said that - once telling that I am Dutch - Dutch men are handsome. I was there for 6 days and I was there for a different reason (not trying to punt) so I hadn't time either to do more th her than a chat in a mall.

in NYC, now you have jerry's office cherry's to be the best place in new york considering price/service ratio. but the girls are just a bunch of ghetto chicks from the bronx and brooklyn, and i would hardly define them as quality. anything outside of this you will have to pay big money which is just not worth it, better off getting on a plane and going to teh carribean or europe.

"......were arraigned on charges of patronizing a prostitute."

That made me smile, perhaps some of the ladies here would wish for a similar offence under UK law!
