By now everyone knows about New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer being "linked to a prostitution ring." At the press conference, did his wife look unhappy or what? "Honey, can you stop by the office this afternoon for a little media event...?"
I have a call into my pal Mary Beth, who did a bit of this when she was younger, for expert commentary. I have no doubt that had Mary Beth worked for the ring in question, she would have been a "seven diamond" call girl. Those apparently went for $5,500 an hour. What the fuck did I go to college for?
Do men still go to prostitutes? I guess so. You guys will have to tell me. There's so much free stuff now, that the whole idea of call girls seems so fifties. I have no doubt that my dad used prostitutes. How could he not being married to my "sex is sinful" mother? Of course, sex slavery is alive and well, a whole other (sometimes related) issue, and far from a victimless crime. But two consenting adults? What's the big deal.
The one thing I won't do is go on one of those Jamaica vacations for "women of a certain age" who pay for handsome, well-hung local studs to service them. How depressing. When I get to the point when I have to pay for sex, I'll kill myself, or get a facelift...
