    Its not ONLY women but the great majority of male prostitutes are involved in homosexual prostitution. the reality is that most women could walk into a club, announce her intention to have sex, and she would have guys lining up vying for the honor whereas men spend hours and mucho dinero trying to get laid. Thats just a reality.

    But doesn't the reality of gay male prostitution kind of defeat the myth that guys would jump on the chance to f anything for free? Why would one guy have to pay another guy... they both have the same goods, and want what the other has... lol

    To be honest and fair, prostitution is more than just "pure sex." This is especially the case with regards to gay prostitution, apparently.

    Rep. Barnie Frank, for example, hired a gay prostitute not just for sex but also for companionship in the early-mid '80's. Apparently, this was quite common for gay men to do, mostly do to the stigma of homosexuality back then. Many gay men wanted male companionship, sometimes sexual, sometimes intimate, sometimes both, but also required discretion. Gay prostitutes was the way to do this.

    Also, not too long back, it wasn't uncommon for a father (or sometimes a mother) to hire a prostitute for a son who was socially awkward in attracting and courting women. They would hire a prostitute for a young man to "show him the ropes" and teach him things about sex that wouldn't have been proper for them to be taught in a classroom. This was also done to give the young man a sense of confidence in his sexuality that he could then use to attract other women.

    So one reason why people look for the services of prostitutes at all is to address sexual needs that they would be embarrassed to approach others about. For some, this could be homosexuality if they are in the closet, or for others certain fetishes that they are ashamed to approach their intimate partners about for whatever reason.

    So there's actually a lot of reasons why people hire prostitutes, ranging from companionship to exploring their sexuality to just having their sexual needs met.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I cant answer why anyone would pay ANYONE for sex-never been my thing...but if Im guessing the reason male prostitutes are as prevalent as they are in the great grand scheme of things is that there are enough men that live in heterosexual relationships that like to take the occasional walk on the wild side, quick and anonymous-like. I dont think men would do ANYTHING that moves...but I have seen more than a few guys get caught in the walk of shame sneaking some last minute pick-up out of a dorm room. I never understood it myself...If you are that desperate...buy a Playboy and a bottle of lotion. A lot cheaper, a lot safer...

    Re: Should prostitution be legalized?

    I voted legalize it.

    It wouldnt make ME happy but I cant really come up with that good of a reason not too, of course there are some but I can defeat them all in my head.

    Just seems wrong for it not to be illegal.
    I mean I can go next door and charge money to paint the fence, dig a hole, lay cement, pose nude, give a massage etc etc and all that is fine. But sex would be wrong? Doesnt really seem to make any sense at all when you think about it. BUT if I go next door I can GIVE all the sex away I want FREE?

    again, its not that im a fan of it but I cant see why its fair or right to have it illegal?

    Of course I would want it regulated like hell to make it more safe. Take the taxes and put into health care and education.

    Likely, "streetwalkers" would likely remain illegal all-together.

Everybody knows where the protitution is, where the people go to buy sex... the red light districts, cops drive down there to patrol.

    And pimps can be brutal to women and children, beat them and force them to prostitute... make it legal, keep people safe, and help people get out when they want to.
    At one time prostitution was legal in the US. Then women in developing cities convinced their husbands that it was bad influence for the children, the world's oldest profession went underground, and rape and abuse ran rampant.

    When I was a kid, sex and porn was the only thing boys thought of, but rarely did mom or dad know about it... Either that or they were too wrapped up in their own sexual frustrations to acknowledge it...

    It's essential that a young man try every form of sex, every form of gambling, every form of business, and every form of philosophy. If he doesn't, he will grow old wondering about, or regretting all the things he missed.

    Been there, done all of that and then some, and have no regrets...

    fat ugly homos need lovin too. and some men don't want others to know they have gay desires, hence the market for gay prostitutes.
