It makes me sick

I know you want a sexy update on my life, dear readers, but I just can't do it today. I heard the news that the convicted DC Madam, Deborah Palfrey killed herself. By hanging. She faced up to 55 years in prison.

She ran a service that involved no coercion -- far from it. The prostitutes were apparently quite an accomplished lot -- one was a Navy officer -- doing this for money, fun, kink. The call-girl service had a clients some of the most powerful men in Washington, or so we're told.

But while Pelfrey faced prison, these men go about their lives. God, some days the hypocrisy of this country that I am sworn to protect makes me sick! We're saturated in sex every second, for profit, by major companies. But consensual escort services are to be exterminated -- although that has never succeeded in the history of humanity.

While this poor woman took her life, I think of all the white-collar criminals who get off, even after they have destroyed thousands of jobs, millions of dollars in retirees' nest eggs. They go off to their mistresses and call girls, but by Sunday they're in church decrying sex and giving big contributions to the despicable politicians who want to rule our bedrooms.

I'm too sick and angry to be horny, and that's saying something.

when I saw the article, I was pretty disgusted by it... a woman took her own life to perpetuate this hypocrisy.... whatever.... :(

at risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, do you really believe she took her own life? Think of all the secrets she would have had and how many careers would (rightfully) end if she could have testified to lessen her sentence. Our government is much too crooked to let that happen. I can only hope that she kept records somewhere, and that they will soon come to light.

Why, Why, why is this allowed to happen. i agree with you.i am a man and for the life of me I do not understand why sex is considered dirty. Why use the word Fuck for sex? I dont know. It is as natural as breathing and if there is an attraction between two people, WHY THE HELL NOT. certainally not on the say so of some freak who is trying to tell us that it is wrong to be natural. beats the hell out of me.
Sorry love, You have spoiled my day. Cannot get that Girl out of my mind and you feel so helpless.
Anyway, Greetings from ireland.

I could not agree more, having lived in Germany the American attitude on sex seems puritan. Prostitution is legal there and also not a "Dirty" job, it's not uncommon for married women to work in that Profession. Also it should be noted that Germany has a very low rate of sexually transmitted disease, sexual crime and divorce. So what is that say about our Great Moral System, well if you ask me it says it's not working. Maybe it's time to rethink as a nation how we live. Just my Humble thoughts.

I fully agree with all the things said in this thread. as always, only selective prosecution of the ones involved. and this is only if you think that consentual sex is wrong - even if money was exchanged. whatever

Women don't hang themselves. This was done not only to silence the madam, but to send a message to the other girls: keep silent.
C'mon, Linda. You know "tradecraft." This was a message.

Not for a second did she commit suicide, her clientèle are too high profile and had a lot to lose from their names being made public. Especially if IMF and other such organizations are is involved.

I've been sitting here for maybe five, ten minutes trying to piece together how I feel about this, and I can't do it. Not intelligently at least. All I can feel is hatred for, as Chris Rock put it, the "hypocrisy of our democracy".

The whole situation makes one want to swear off sex which is what the "anti-enjoy anything" crowd wants. Make some beautiful so repugnant people don't want to engage.

Cheezus, people. It´s obvious!

She was suicided.

It´s the oldest and surest trick the wankers of the alphabet soup agencies have to shut somebody up. Welcome to the real realworld.

To these people it´s just one bothersome whore less and a message to the others what happens when somebody rocks the boat.

Oh my God! I don't know how I stumbled upon this, or who you people are, but I am just amazed that there are actually some intelligent people still out there! Thank you! America, the home of the free and brave... has become America, home of the enslaved and frightened! I don't get it either. Sex is considered to be so morally repugnant that the public allows our out-of-control government to destroy peoples' lives over it, but we're subjected to endless images of unbelievable violence, both imagined and REAL, every day on television, in the movies, and on the news! It's perfectly ethical for our corrupt government to slaughter more than 655,000 Iraqi civilians with our money, and WITHOUT our permission, but get paid for giving someone pleasure? ...Ohhhh, now that's evil.

I am an MD, MBA, and mother of two, and I like to have sex. I guess I'm just another one of those deviants... Shhhhhh!
