In my honest opinion I think most prostitutes think they are too good and in a better class than punters.

I am not sure which is right. But I do think prostitutes need to lower their expectations. They are doing this job due to lack of options.
One of Anth's more insightful posts.
You can despise someone with good reason and still be respectful and polite when you meet them. Heads of state do it all the time.
You can also separate it like this: despise a Nazi war criminal for what he did to your grandparents, but if you are sat on a desert island with him, try to relate to the person, not the criminal.
There is a biological distaste between prossies and punters that should be overridden for the sake of our civilised existence in a repressive society. Sex is an amazing, some would say even a sacred thing, an expression of deepest desire. Why would a woman allow herself to use it not as an expression of herself but simply for financial gain? A man (or woman) naturally wants to attract a partner or partners for the natural expression of sexual desire and attraction. Why would he pay someone to fake it? The answer to both questions is one of necessity. It is better to have a temporary release of desire, even an imperfect release, than suffer the psychological mangling of frustrated sexual need. It is better to pretend to oneself and another rather than starve.
Prostitution is a civilised exchange providing a stop gap solution in a very imperfect world. The fear of being 'outed' is part and parcel of the acknowledgement that one has found it necessary to indulge in a less than perfect solution. Indeed, the tribulations of modern society will often have made it the least imperfect
of all possible solutions in any individual case. The acceptance of this, and civilised accord between prossies and punters is simple acknowledgment of such a state of affairs.
