What's the most important service that a prostitute provides?
I would say that it's not DFK or a Facial, nice though they are, but discretion, ie, a man can punt with a girl safe in the knowledge that he can leave her at the end of it and that he never has to hear from her again. Even more important is the implicit contract that she never talks about his sexual tastes to anybody else and that includes her girlfriends and other prostitutes.
It simply doesn't matter if the man involved is a road sweeper or a footballer. All men are entitled to the same level of discretion.
What then are we to make of Helen Wood, a prostitute who phoned the News of the World after her client left?
She broke every rule that exists in a prostitute-client relationship. And all for what? a few thousand pounds and having reporters camp outside her mother's house shouting: "Did you know your daughter was a prostitute?", every time her mother went in and out of the house.
Of course, her career as a prostitute is over, after all which man would trust her now?
Still Tesco is always looking for shelf stackers.
