There are many girls out there who would never become a prossie (not for a reasonable price anyway), so what is it that flicks that switch in a girls head that lets them justify to themselves that its OK to exchange sex for money?
Being skint? - must be more than that
Peer pressure? - I guess is your friend is a WG and you see their money, it justifies and validates the career
Enjoying sex/promiscuity? - and if you enjoy it you may as well get paid for it
Mental/Physical/Sexual abuse? - I know it can be a factor
Acromonious Divorce? - of parents or their own relationships
All of the above
'Being skint?' Everyone that works, does so to avoid being skint. Almost everyone works because they have to earn a living, WG being no different.
I would guess the reasons that 'make' a girl become a WG are as varied and diverse as that of any other job. My experience when meeting/interacting with other WG's is that they are as varied a group of people from as many different walk of life, classes, back grounds etc as people at uni, working in Tesco, the punters on this board and so on.
What makes a punter become a punter and flicks a switch that makes them justify to themselves it is ok to exchange money for sex?
There's nothing to justify about being a WG any more than there is to being a punter.
I became a WG because:
* I am self employed, self sufficient and independent as a result.
* Able to chose hours that fit my timetable, can be changed any time I wish and offer maximum flexibility.
* It's exciting, offers adventure, spontaneity, variety.
* Is, at times, extremely rewarding, liberating, empowering and thrilling.
* Suits my personality.
