Ontopic: Why I visit prostitutes
I am a man who regularly visits prostitutes. There are quite a few of us — according to a Business Insider article, as many as one in seven American men will visit a prostitute at some point in their lives. That’s 14 percent, only slightly lower than the percentage of women over 18 who smoke cigarettes (15.8 percent).
You don’t usually hear from us, though. As much shame as society casts on sex workers, the stigma of the regular client is also strong. Recently, trusted online services were shut down in investigations for alleged child trafficking, so I decided it was time to speak up and tell my story.
Instead of seeking love, I sought success. I helped found a company in 1997, then helped build it to something we sold more than a decade later. In the time others might spend pursuing a relationship, I created a successful enterprise.
Pretty much sums up my mindset, too. Dating when you need sex is like trying to sell your car when you're in desperate need of money - it's an unpleasant experience, and you're not likely to get a good deal. To have a good time, visit a hooker before heading to the disco. If you meet some nice ladies there, take them home, but if there are only nasty bitches, you can safely tell them to fuck off - the sauna club will still be there waiting for you later.
