What is prostitution?

19 posts in this topic

A prostitute is a women who charges money for sex. Now if we go back few thousand years, there is no money developed. There is barter system. So prostitute would charge a men few loaf or bread for sex. Next day she still has bread so asks for butter for sex. Third day, she asks for clothes for sex. So if you continued to go to same prostitute for 1 month than you will be supplying all provisions for running her house in return for sex. Now coming back to modern times, you are giving provisions for each month to a women, she gives you sex, but only 3-4 times a month and that to of poor quality. This women is now called wife. So actually the mathematical equation will be as follows:

Prostitute = "wife" + "sex for remaining 26 days" .

In other words Paid sex is cheapest form of sex. So if we go by above equation, if sex was the motive "wife" is a bad option to chose. So why do all of us marry? It is surely not for 100% sexual satisfaction. Hence it is totally logical for men to go to prostitute to satisfy the sexual urge.

Now going back again to prehistoric times, it can be argued that the reason that men turned into bread earners in all cultures can be due to the fact that women realised that men will do all work to satisfy women provided the women gave him sex. So women chose the option of offering sex to him while he went out to earn food, shelter etc. Other reason could be that women would get pregnant every 2 year from age 15 to age 45 and so she would ge unavailable for hard work for atleast 2-3 months every year and so she had to stay home and also she had to feed young when she was not pregnant. Staying a home only job she could do was selling sex. Now whether she chose 1 single customer called husband or many different customers called punters defined whether she was called wife or prostitute.

All the above arguement is not to say that wife is a prostitute or prostitute is as good as your wife. It is only showing all that prostitute and wife are two different ways of living for women. But modern society has made protitution look like dirty and criminal task. Otherwise it is just a womens way of earning by knowing what market is ready to buy from her. With sex itself being given a low image in most religions of world the people who buy sex were looked down upon. And worst suffers were women who sold sex who were given lowest social status.

These values of religion cannot change and so as long as we live I feel that it is going to be the same way and prostitution will continue to be called a oldest but dirtiest profession in world and I doubt we will live to see that day where high school and college girls will enact roles of prostitute and will proudly announce on graduation that I want to be a sucessful prostitute or little kids while chatting will prouldly say "My mom's a no.1 prostitute of town" instead of "My mom's a doctors" or "My mom's a teacher".

I fucking hate that simplistic analysis of marriage that says "man pays for sex anyway". There is so very much more exchanged in a marriage than just sex and food/roof over head, y'know.

And the rest of it is outdated balderdash. But, given your name and your use of English, I'm going to assume you're not steeped in UK culture.

Sit back in comfy chair. Open popcorn and wait to see the excrement collide with the cooling device.

Given enough thought you can put up an argument that black is white, but prepare to meet hostility from some of the quiet and demur ladies from this forum. You may get outright war from the more vociferous members!

I hate it to, I pay for a hell of a lot of things, but I don't get any sex off the wife.

Simplistic, yes, but more true than false; there are infinite shades of grey between black and white.

How do you compaire seeing an Escort, with spending many years with your wife!...

If your just going to base it on sex, then yes the Escort is more open and gifted when you compaire to the average woman in the street, which considering her job, is hardly rocket science.

"These values of religion cannot change" as you say, maybe if you did see that they could change, you would see or hear some women say they want to be the No 1 escort in town, instead of being so typical

Over simplified view by OP.

He seems to ignore the Repect and the bonds that can exist between human beings, bedpartner or not.

But especially between those who got close enought to sleep together.

Sleeping together does something to your mind!

A few thoughts:

Firstly, I would think that in most _really_ succesful marriages the female is more or less able to fullfill the needs of the male and vice versa.

She would have to yield both Carrot and Stick, so to speak.

(success defined as: stay happily together without infidelity,

and raise kids in decent, correct way)

Secondly, it is not impossible that some of the polygamy systems (harems? mormons?) or the more-or-less accepted mistress-arrangements (France comes to mind) can actually work. I've seen a few cases of kept-mistresses where the wife (and kids) more or less accepted the arrangement.

A high-earner can maintain multiple women + offspring in that way.

Does that make them prostitutes ?

A lot of black, grey response to certainly controversial question.

But if we study the sex life of animals there are some different pointers:

1) In most species including humans male are stronger, have more hair or mane, like human male has beard, lion has mane, peacock has colored feathers etc. Females are smaller in size and actually less attractive. (In case of humans it seems other way).

2) Males in most species have to prove themselves to females so that they accept them in mating.

3) Males roam around looking for foods etc, while female stays in groups with kids.

4) Penguin is only animal which is observed to offer sex to male in return for few stones which are like their money. She shows no bonding or attachment to male after the act. She just picks a stone from male's nest and goes. They need stones to keep them warm. So it is argued that penguin has shown a culture of prostitution among them.

The discussion here is that like many of us do jobs we don't like much but have to do for money, can we consider prostitution as a means of earning too, although sometimes women will not like the customer. In many jobs like acting etc. there are physical contact between male and females but these are accepted as good respectable professions now a days.

I am not sure if the arguement that sexual desire must be satisfied within the boundaries of marriage or not is actually addressed here. Also for guys who are not married, single, divorced, widow is going to prostitute acceptable? Can government prevent a person to satify his sexual needs when he has no women who will give her for free. If you want food and you don't get it at home you go out and buy some. So if prostitution is illegal should all single men, divorced , widow be forced to like a life of celibacy?

Any for womens point of view , if she wants to buy sex , why can't she too? Is prostitute a word that denote only for females or even a male who sells sex to women can be classified as a prostitute?

I'm not sure what your "pointers" are pointing out; that different species have, over millions of years, evolved different mating patterns and reproductive behaviour? It's hardly an earth-shattering revelation. :)

And yes of course, if a man sells sex he's a prostitute.

The definition of a prostitute taken from Section 51 (Sections 48 to 50: interpretation) of The Sexual Offences Act 2003 states :-

(2) In those sections "prostitute" means a person (A) who, on at least one occasion and whether or not compelled to do so, offers or provides sexual services to another person in return for payment or a promise of payment to A or a third person; and "prostitution" is to be interpreted accordingly.

As you can see, it is gender neutral.

Bonobo chimps and dolphins are also known to exchanging food for sex, some parrots and monkeys do as well.
