Public Life...

12 posts in this topic

With my utter contempt for our elected representatives, I'm considering putting my name forward as a candidate in local elections and maybe even the next general election. I would be independant, so there's no realistic chance of me getting anywhere, but was thinking, if I did, I'd be constantly watching my back and waiting for that 'exclusive' on Midlands Today where Nick Owen interviews a lady (and they're careful to conceal and protect her identity) on how I violated her whilst she was at her most vulnerable, and more revelations including depraved sex acts, dirty gifts and filthy threesomes.

I know that discretion is always guaranteed by service providers, but when it comes down to it, you can only really ever trust yourself. Although I'm single and have never been married, the media and certainly the electorate would still put me in the same category as all the married philandering public figures, not to mention the embarrassment that would be caused to my family.

I'm wondering whether any of the ladies who frequent the board have met public figures in their professional life, and whether visiting escorts - even whilst single - effectively bars one from public life?

I bet quite a few ladies have met "public figures" but I would hope they would never be so indiscreet as to tell anybody else about it, let alone the reprobates on this forum.

Its most certainly not always guaranteed as kiss and tells have proved over the years. It depends on the WG in reality. I definitely wouldnt risk going public as it were, but i have zero interest in doing so anyway.

Err isn't the whole point that if a lady has then she surely isn't going to be so indiscrete as to say so?

Personally so long as I'm safe, paid and have a good time (him as customer whilst respecting my boundaries and me as provider),then that's all I'm bothered about. Majority of the time my mind goes onto something else afterwards, I've even been told off for not saying "Hello" in the street! Err my role is generally not to run about shouting "Ey' up Jack,lovely time we 'ad last night" as I walk down the street, where ever I may be.

Call me cynical but my guess is that the only MPs that get exposed are those that refuse to co-operate in the expected manner. Unless you are standing on a BNP-type platform, I wouldn't worry about it.

But seriously, there is no point in standing as an independent candidate unless you are a well-known local person who has a support base within the community eg the local doctor campaigning against a proposed hospital closure or part of a ratepayers protest group.

Hi Strawberry, I was just wondering whether many of the ladies here had bumped into public figures; I certainly was not asking any names to be revealed or even hinted at...apologies if that was unclear.

Haha no, I'm no BNP sympathiser, but I know what you mean. My work does bring me to the public locally sometimes and many people tell me they'd love to vote for someone genuinely local without loyalties to the main parties...yet they still vote for them come election time. Go figure!

In that case, stand for the council, but as a minimum you need to leaflet your ward to let people know that there is an independent local candidate and try to get people who feel the same way as you do, to do the same.

Westminster elections are a waste of time. People only vote for someone who they think can win, so third parties and minor candidates are squeezed out by tactical voting.

God, I'd love it if more (read: any) people stood for elected positions and were open in a "it's no big deal" way about being the clients of WGs!

Don't get me wrong: I know it's super-risky, both personally and politically - openness vs stigma is something all WGs have to negotiate constantly, of course. (I try to be fairly open about my job with people, partly because I want to be a contrary datapoint educating those who think they don't know/haven't met any sex workers, and partly because lying is difficult and boring, but of course I have to always make decisions about how safe it is to be open, and often it's not safe - hiding what you do, whether that's being a WG or visiting one, is frequently necessary.)

But like, d'you remember last year when Louise Mensch nearly got into trouble for taking drugs in the 90s, and she kind of turned it to her advantage (damn her) by releasing a statement - yes, apologising - but in a jokey, "it's not a huuuuge deal" kinda way, and made herself come off as totally human and relatable? (Unfortunate sleight of hand, as LM is obviously an evil robot.) Her drugs press release was indicative of a sea-change in attitudes to drugs in politician's past lives, and wouldn't it be so great if we could get to the stage where people who wanted to be politicians could be like, "yes, journalist, now you mention it, I have visited sex workers/had kinky sex/had poly relationships/lived a bit/gone to a sex club/WHATEVER, and everything was totally consensual and lovely, soooo, um, d'you wanna ask me something substantive? Like, about policy?"

... Which totally doesn't answer your question, sorry! And I'm sure you don't want your independent candidacy to become a referendum on the electorate's views on the sex industry. I wouldn't out you, of course! I hope no WG would. But if a journalist did, without the collaboration of a WG, it would be so great to have someone turn around and be like "yeah good one journo, everyone wins when what consenting adults do behind closed doors is hugely stigmatised OH WAIT". Y'know?

I rather think that what the tabloids really go for is hypocricy (Hypocrisy is the state of promoting or administering virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not actually have or is guilty of violating. - Wikipedia).

If you have "previous" for objecting to a WG trading from a flat within half a mile of a school, are a landlord who has either evicted a tenant for "immorality" or to the contrary, charged her double rent, then that is bound to be brought up and used to flay you.

Do "people in public life" frequent WGs? One could cite Profumo, Lord Lambton, Earl Jellicoe, and, indeed, the Grand Duke of Wellington, (Publish & be damned!). I think you'll find that the Edinburgh saunas all do very good business for the two weeks of the Church of Scotland's General Assembly every year.

Ladies I've enjoyed post-coital chit chat with have almost always said that they've "received" Judges, and clergymen, (Policemen, I rather fear, expect to get it for free from a rather lower level of the trade) but they've never named them. One Edinburgh Sheriff who needed to be dominated, used to use Carole's Sauna, and, IIRR, got out of order, and was then "outed" in the press, and found it prudent to retire! The warmly remembered SexyMayofLondon had some lovely photos on her website, presumably taken by the punter, of her stretched out naked on the mahoganny board room table of some City of London plc! He, presumably was willing to take the risk of being "outed"!

I reckon that you should be safe, just so long as you are honest with the electorate! Equally, I think prudence argues that you don't use your fred.smith.cllr@wherever.gov.uk address to e-mail WGs, and, indeed, never use the Council's PC, no matter how good the connection is, for anything remotely punting related!

No, I'd be very discreet, and my motives for putting myself forward are the general populous being ripped off on a daily basis for tax, utilities, housing, insurance and general cost of living...my view is that elected representatives should serve those they represent and leave the moralising and judgement for religious institutions - which thankfully very few of us take any notice of any more.

I went to a place a few years ago and a Conservative MP was there- I recognised him as he was my aunt's MP, not that I let on, and would not divulge his name. He expected the same discretion as I received from the place.

Hello Strawberry. I think you have to expect discretion from both parties. Neither one should seek to embarrass the other. It's just business in private. Friendly but never friends. How can you not be friendly when you are so intimate? Outside it's a different matter unless circumstances dictate otherwise. It's easy enough to find out information if you are nosey but surely there has to be a code of conduct and implied trust from both lady and gentleman concerned? It's what happens in private that matters. I don't care what public figures do in private as long as it doesn't impact on their public life.
