I got lucky last night …
I was channel surfing, which I rarely do, and stumbled upon CNBC’s report:
… which was surprisingly non-sleazy, non-judgmental and about as devoid of histrionics as is possible when TV reporters and cameras are unleashed to cover such a topic.
They even allowed speculation that “a sizeable minority of Americans” (somewhere between 25 percent and half) might be … unopposed … to legalizing sex work.
Which is not the same thing as saying that Americans are, well, ready to take to the streets. But still.
If you missed it, the majority of Dirty Money is online. Here is one of the many clips from the CNBC site:
At the “high end” of the sex business — apparently, most wealthy men are looking for connection, conversation and intimacy instead of kinky acrobatic porn-star sex. “The Girlfriend Experience,” in other words.
I’ve always thought the free girlfriend/boyfriend experience was pretty satisfactory. Though it obviously can have its ups and downs and some misery as well as joy and pleasure. The paid-for experience … falls under the heading of fantasy fulfillment.
