So imagine my surprise to find today's lead Cracked article was on the very subject, and written by an actual former prostitute.
Or if you can't, here's the EE-relevant quote:
Anyone who thinks legal prostitution is a clear case of men exploiting women hasn't watched a 60-year-old investment banker offer $40,000 for a weekend of back-rubs and cuddling. And anyone who thinks what I just described is easy hasn't ever faked a romantic weekend with someone they barely know. Exploitation is a two-way street.How about that?
How about that, indeed?
