Escort (n): a person who accompanies another for protection, guidance, courtesy, or companionship.
But let's be real....it's often for that lil three letter word....SEX! And it has my applause. I have a lot of friends who are escorts. Very talented, smart, caring, and interesting people. Most have college degrees and a very diverse life.
What troubles me is not them....but those who oppose escorting. There is nothing taboo about it. Client approaches escort....communicates desires and fantasies....escort spends time with client to provide such fantasy....payment...and voilà! How very honest of a profession. No trans Atlantic importation of goods was required, no burning of fossil fuels, no useless Styrofoam packaging. Just a human selling the one thing they truly own in this world....their time.
There isn't a lot I can say about this except a majority of Americans are wrong for imposing their religious beliefs on political decisions. Prostitution and Escorting should be a legal and public career that is taxed and valid.
People have it so backwards. People think we own the earth and have a right to strip away the resources of the earth to sell..to increase the value of our economy...to accumulate wealth. But when someone tries to sell something that has no deleterious effects on the earth the religious right labels them immoral.
Immoral is taking more than you need.
I would recommend everyone to read the book Ishmael. I read it today and it is incredibly insightful!
