Her chestnut-colored hair sat perfectly coiffed, long and just the right amount of bounce. My focus trailed this collection of women. Footsteps and creaking could be heard getting louder and heavier.
A large stranger with a mop of thick grey hair appeared in the doorway. He wore a monogrammed blue blazer. He was probably fifty years old, handsome and healthy looking. I stood there in my short, white, pleated cotton skirt and low-cut black fitted sweater, waiting for him to decide if, at twenty-one, I was a little bit old for his tastes.
We automatically grasp onto the assumption that these lewd women through history have provided a service to the naturally amorous male populace.
If we are talking about prostitution wholesale then we should divert our attention to Industrialization , which is when gender roles took a cultural turn.
Medieval women were understood as being as prone to lust as men, if not more so. Industrialisation changed gender roles completely. Capitalism, a concern for second wave Marxist feminists, saw a complete re-ordering of family relationships. It became the norm to conduct business outside of the home. Middle class women were assigned to the domestic sphere whilst their businessmen husbands adopted a brand new autonomous lifestyle, at the same time enshrining notions that women and men were different.
This spread down to the working classes where women would slave away in factories coupled with caring for their children whilst men departed to drinking holes after the working day. Neither class of women had legal personhood; this privilege was vested in the man. This was the setting for a brand new time of sexual liberation for men — foregrounded within the Capitalists new control over women. The digitization of porn , is accompanied by a big escort scene.

I left home very young, having had a troubling relationship with my mother, and was quite vulnerable. I soon ended up in the glamour industry , and at the mercy of much older men, modelling and dancing — but sometimes also escorting.
After my time escorting, something inside died. The worst thing I heard someone say to me, taken from a spiritual doctrine, was that every person who ever fucks you leaves their essence with you.

They want all the satisfaction for themselves. It is a bit embarrassing. I simply love these call girls and escorts. I mean, being married with kids is good, but as a man I need my urges satisfied as well, which my wife of course can never do.
But yes, the sex is just awesome. I might regret it afterwards but thinking about one touch, one blowjob and one damn strip tease— that is all it takes for me to lose control and cheat. When I was in my early twenties I visited a brothel in Germany.
I was young, the women were alluring, and the idea of legal prostitution was new and exciting to me then. I paid 70 marks for an experience that lasted less than 10 minutes.
I found it empty and rather hollow. That was my one and only time. So why do other men pay for sex time and again? I can only speak for myself. Living in a society that bases its morality within a Christian-Judeo framework there is the temptation to judge the prostitute and her John.
