Anth, I know you are talking from the school of hard knocks and I respect that. But I do think there are shades of grey. As several people have said, it's a business arrangement. Not every prossie (in fact very few) is bright enough to enact a callous game plan (though some manage it with a little help from a coniving cunt of a brothel owner). Some of the comments were also good business practice from the prossie's viewpoint. (I don't like the way Tescos usurps community shopping but I can't fault their busines plan so easily.)
I think our concern here is for punters, just as saafe's is for prossies. It is reasonable to assume that a prossie may be a conniving thieving short-changing little clock-watcher but only inasmuch as it makes the punter take realistic precautions. If there is proof, then she goes on a blacklist. Otherwise they are simply black market business chancers and not all of them will be out to scam the punter. Some will want to establish a client base and of those, some may do it ethically by providing good service and good attitude, and others may try to entrap the punter by laying it on thick. I see no reason to condemn all prostitutes out of hand: merely be prepared for the worst but hope (intelligently) for the best. The "best" meaning good service and good attitude NOT extending 'GFE' to the period outside of the punt.
Spot on. I'm generally nice to people who pay me, because it is profitable to be so. It doesn't mean I secretly hate them. Honestly, most of the time I don't have feelings one way or the other. If they started calling me up and asking them to go to the cinema with them every Friday night for free because they liked my company so much, I'd be a bit fucking weirded out to say the least*.
I think it's OK to feel some EAS for a prossie as long as you keep it in perspective. I quite enjoy the headfuck and emotional rollercoaster for a few days when it happens, personally. The problems come when you start thinking that your feelings are anything other than that... your
feelings. It's just something your brain does from time to time. It doesn't mean you're her special little snowflake.
The WG's responsibility towards you begins and ends with delivering the services paid for, in a pleasant and competent fashion. Beyond that, she owes you nuttin', and if you expect more than that, at best you're asking to be blacklisted by her, and at worst, exploited for all the cash in your bank.
