How much does love cost?
You must sing this to the melody of Crosby, Stills and Nash's "Love the one you're with"...
And your baby is so far away. Well, pack your coat and a glove Take a plane that flies above Cause if you can't be with the one you love Pay someone to have sex with
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
Love the one you're with Okay, so it needs a little work, you get the idea right? Have you ever had the notion to pay for play? It's the oldest known profession, somebody is out there doing it, would you?
Trust me when I tell you that it is so easy to pass judgment and say that we would never be so desperate to pay to have sex with someone. However, putting your morals, values and religious beliefs aside, it does make sense that this service would exist, be popular and profitable for some societies right?
Now as an all American girl born and raised, the stereotypes and images of prostitutes that come to my mind all include some skanky looking chick with a short skirt and halter top walking down a dark street and getting in the back of a car or checking into some seedy motel. Let us not forget the ever-popular role of the pimp. If you listen to today's music, you already know that Pimpin' is back, however, it's "hard out there for a pimp".
Now, since we have already thrown out morals, values and religious beliefs. I must state that when I talk about prostitution, I'm in no way referring to human trafficking, children or anyone being forced to perform sexual acts. For the sake of this article and argument, we are talking about consenting adults that engage in sexual acts for money.
Now if you are considering paying for love in all the right places and you happen to be in the U.S. well there is not many choices for you. Nevada is known to be the hot spot for all things "off limits" everywhere else. The truth is that prostitution is illegal in Los Vegas. You would have to travel to Nye County or northern Nevada. There you can find several licensed "ranches" that are regulated by the state. This just means that a doctor...on a regular must check out their employees. The chance that any of these places would be involved in any "illegal" activity such as racketeering, drugs or child pornography is extremely rare as it would but them at risk of losing their state license.
I'm sure that asking you to put aside your morals, values and religious beliefs is like asking a person to look at something from a "mother or father's perspective" and not as a woman or man...there are some things that you just can't separate. Personally, I put prostitution in the same class as alcohol. It's so much easier to control something when you know where it is and who's consuming it. Of course, there will be those that still want to sell it out of their basements on Sunday's after hours or to those not old enough to buy it. However, you get that whether it's legal or not.
Some believe that prostitution, pornography and other forms of commercialized sex, despite being a multibillion-dollar industry only cater to a small number of consumers. That legalizing it will break up families, homes and communities. Increase violence, drugs and crime. Sounds like a good argument for gun control. Oh, there I go again forgetting that I live in a place where it is better to make war NOT love.
I'm all for getting love when and where you can find it. If you have to pay for it, well do you baby. As long as you're not taking it against someone's will and they are not being forced to sell it to you. Who am I to judge? Everything is not for everyone. Know what is right for you and move along.
