    Um...in order for that to be true there would have to be a valid comparison to drugs and money and there just isn't. She could use the money for her education. I'd say that would be better and far more productive than doing it for drugs.

    Sounds like to me your just jelous you couldn't get that much for your virginity, but that may just be me.

    If I am wrong, I am sorry.

    However, I have no problem with prostitution if done voluntary. I live in Nevada where there are a few bordellos that are operated. I even know one woman personally (I am a non customer if that is in question) who does it voluntarily because she makes money that she is putting away and investing and does it because she can make more than anywhere else for that short period of time.

    I wonder just how many of you who have no problem with women selling their bodies for money feel the same way about women selling their bodies for drugs. It's the same thing. And actually, selling one's body does make you a whore.

    whore (hr, hōr) Pronunciation Key
    n.

    1. A prostitute.
    2. A person considered sexually promiscuous.
    3. A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.

    intr.v. whored, whoring, whores

    1. To associate or have sexual relations with prostitutes or a prostitute.
    2. To accept payment in exchange for sexual relations.
    3. To compromise one's principles for personal gain.


    How would she not be a whore?
    If someone wants to sell their body for drugs, that is their business. As long as they are not harming anyone else, I say go for it. We are conditioned in this society to believe that certain things are "bad" or "wrong" when in reality, they are not necessarily.

    The girl in question is a "whore" by definition, but a whore is not really a bad thing. People give bad connotations to words to make themselves feel better about something they do not understand. It makes them feel like they have more control over a situation that they disapprove of. She is a "whore", and that is fine because it is her choosing.

    My comparison was going based on the fact that you are okay with people "selling" their bodies for personal gain. Monetary gain was the only form mentioned. Hence me saying I wonder how many of you who are okay with her selling her body for money, would be okay with her selling her body for drugs. Besides, money could still be used to buy drugs. Why would it matter that they would drop the money part and exchange directly for drugs. Would you be okay with her selling her body for education directly? Or would that be demeaning and wrong?

    What part of my post gave you the impression I was jealous? If I were jealous, wouldn't I have tried to sell my virginity and failed? Hmm. I didn't know I suggested such a thing in my post. But that's okay if you feel that way. I lost my virginity in anot so great manner, but I don't dwell on it. I could care less if it's about virginity. I think it's nasty to sell your body. I am entitled to my opinion just as you are yours.

    I didn't realize I had suggested she was a terrible person. I just stated I think it's nasty. I can think it's nasty. It doesn't mean I am going to go all hell bent on a mission to stop her. I was merely stating that by definition she is a whore. I never said she should be killed or should catch an STD.

    Personally I could care less if it's money or drugs. I thought you were trying to draw a comparison between the two. And I wouldn't say she's selling her body. She's selling her virginity. It's one night. The whole "selling your body" thing makes it sound much more extreme than it really is. It's just sex.

    Sex can only be sex if bodies are involved.

    So what? I still wouldn't call it "selling her body". She's selling sex, not her body. I've found that people who use the phrase "selling her body" only do so because they believe sex to be this intensely precious and personal thing. If that were true for everyone then there would be no prostitutes, swingers, **** buddies, etc.

    I wonder if these same people think you're "giving your body away for free" when you're just having sex and there's no money involved.
    Does anyone really think of it in those terms?
    When I have sex, I'm no more "giving my body away" than I'm taking somebody else's body away.
    If something can't be given away, how can it be sold.
    In fact, the original occupant of the body in question is still sovereign over the body, still the sole occupant, proprietor, and custodian of said body, monetary exchanges notwithstanding. There is no way to transfer ownership of one's body to someone else. You can't sell it, even if you wanted to. You can't even rent it out, because no matter what kind of sexual hijinx you get up to with another person, you- not they- are still the sole occupant of your body (and they're still the sole occupant of theirs).

    One can't "sell one's body", unless one sells it to a medical school as a research cadaver... and then they can only collect it after one is already dead.

    It's a dumb saying, "sell one's body".
    it's alarmist, misleading, and false.
