The Happy Punter

India Knight And Sarah Vine Articles

14 posts in this topic

I probably should get out more but where else can I discuss two articles which I read recently and interest me - not least because I am a punter!

 

India Knight wrote a piece in the Sunday Times just past - the column was ostensibly about Sugar Daddies but veered rather seamlessly into a kind of anti-prostitution polemic.

 

In it she commented:  '...prostitution is...a last ditch measure. It always irreparably hurts the woman's soul.'

 

Now that got me thinking and I am no expert on the soul - I mean who is - but my experience of WG's is that they are very normal, happy women who don't seem especially angst ridden or going through an existential crisis - - to be fair if they are they don't let on - but I would say most aren't.  

 

And that got me thinking that when HSBC were fined $3 billion dollars for money laundering the Mexican drug barons money no one spoke about this as damaging their souls or when Barclays were fined a similar amount for 'market fixing' (theft and fraud) no one spoke [or wrote] of their souls being damaged.

 

In a similar mood and frame of mine Sarah Vine in today's Mail (Fail) commenting on the recent drama on NappyValley.Net..Com berated the fella for using Uber the taxi booking firm (( mean 'duh') and wrote of the hapless chap: '[as he] travelled by mini-cab to some 'random scuzzy' address in order to cheat with an escort girl is despicable.'   

 

I was shocked to read that scuzzy means something dirty, nasty, or otherwise disgusting(usually a woman)  - for example: 'yo, don't fuck her, that bitch is scuzzy." "who invited those scuzzy bitches?"

 

Clearly Ms Vine and Ms Knight are writing to illicit a reaction or reinforce a mind-set, appeal to their readership etc but it seems sex work features/articles rely so heavily on a prevailing myth/prejudice that the idea of a more enlightened approach or discussion is not likely to happen to soon.

 

Although I may be wrong maybe times are a changing as Ms Vine counselled forgiveness in the case of the 'hapless punter' advising his partner: '......, he owes you big time, I hear Anya Hindmarch has an excellent handbag sale on.'

... and so neatly turning the "cheated on" woman into something akin to a prostitute, whose price seems to be the equivalent of a handbag (and Hindmarch to boot, yikes!), without seemingly being aware of the irony.

Well, it does not hurt my soul........ oppositely, I think it made me stronger.  I was very naive to start with and could not believe that people have a nasty DNA: it was a shock to my system.

 

But good luck to her on assuming that women who marry for money and then divorce a poor fella taking the 'money they are entitled for' are any different......... despite them thinking otherwise, for sure.

Good point!  Yes the blinkers are fully in place on these people.... those who write the same old drivel over and over.  The progress being made regarding changing attitudes to our profession is at a snail's pace and doesn't look to speeding up any time soon (not in my wg life anyway) .....

 

some lovely handbags on sale though..... but I will stick to my TKMAX bargains thank you very much..... my money has a much better place to be!

Re "scuzzy", it looked to me that SV was quoting what the betrayed wife had written. I think we can allow her that.

Now I know better than to disagree with a Col but from what I can tell the 'betrayed wife' refers to the 'harlot' - oh the dramatic effect of pejorative of language, as an 'escort' in the thread - she doesn't appear to dignify her other than this rather mellow and acceptable job title - I much prefer Happiness Provider myself - but quite understand how the 'betrayed wife' would see it that way!!

 

I can't see where she refers to her as a 'random scussy (scuzzy)' and at the moment and putting my money on the literary flair or not of SV!

Oh definitely, but Ms Vine is referring to 'forgiveness', not sexual services in the context of the handbag. I'm happy to give a blowjob for a fraction of the cost of a handbag, but my forgiveness costs a Danbury T2.

,,ha ha ha....it seems ultimately every woman has a range of prices for services offered be that sexual or indeed virtuous nature (forgiveness) ranging it appears from a Hindmarch to a Danbury T2 - which is, as I understand it and if I am not mistaken is a VW camper van (http://www.danburymotorcaravans.com/models/model.aspx?modelID=1).

Justs more silly women assuming that the vagina is without fail linked to the heart. Bit of a steep assumption that plus since when was the soul able to be damaged, its what makes you you, you are still you even if you do something that has a detrimental effect on you. Some women no doubt are affected badly by doing this job but plenty more are not, they only reap the benefits

'Scuzzy' is not used by the woman in the original online posting, or by Sarah Vine, to refer to the escort but the the area in London where the encounter took place.

I'm now appalled that in the interests of getting to the bottom of this unseemly tale I have actually read something written by Vine for the first time ever. I feel dirty and defiled!

I'm also amused: in my younger days, the purlieus of south west London were a happy hunting ground for extra- curricular nooky. I have fond memories of several 'yummy mummies' who were all too happy to discard their knickers while hubby was at work up in the city and the nanny had taken the kids off somewhere for a few hours!

...ah your right, thanks for that, in the SV piece there is a comma between random and scuzzy.... and just one little comma changes everything.

 

Although have to say not a nice word,  some guilt by association meant I am sure as it can also mean (so I am told): dirty, bitch, nasty, gross, ho, balls, skank, cunt and apparently 'swanky.'

 

Was the area of London mentioned at all or is SV using her imagination as seedy (snuzzy) is better copy than 'swanky' that is for sure.

 

Also is scuzzy an English slang term - I have never heard of it before.

 

Those 'yummy mummy's of SW London of old sound a much more warmer lot than the current crowd - what with their rushing to forums to complain of the errant hubbies - how times have changed!

The current crowd are only interested in comparing handbags (competitively) and agonizing over how good their summer holiday destination looks when they try to brag about it.

They used to be the very 'creme de la creme' - rich, thick and very spreadable!

Sarah Vine sleeps with Michael Gove so no wonder she has a warped view of sexuality.
