Are Hookers Sexual Predators?

I've been giving thought to the whole dynamic of how hookers seem to target lonely men on dating sites lately and it kind of flipped a switch for me

I used to think prostitution was relatively harmless, something to tax and regulate, but I've realized that it's a bit worse than that.

I frankly find it odd that in many justisticrions only the Male buyers are punished. I mean these women take touch starved lonely men and literally exploit their misery for cash.

Do you agree that this behaviour is predatory and that there's a good reason to keep sex work taboo?

  • Well, I guess a reason to keep it taboo is that it is "world's oldest profession".

    Prostitution always increases in societies that are going backwards; economically, morally, and culturally. It's the most primitive solution for our most basic instinct (and you could argue it's not a solution, or just a very short-term and even counter-productive solution), or you can say it is a basic way of survival for women without a community (or without a strong community).

    And yes, you could say any person in that state/situation shows or at least can show predatory behaviour. For men, it's usually raw physical strength that keeps them alive on their own, when they think they don't have a community. It's more likely for a man to go shoplifting than sell himself on the streets.

    Any disintegrated or disintegrating community will see a boom in prostitution. You could look back at my country, Germany, after both great wars when a cohesive society was nowhere to be found.

    There is a concept in game theory called prisoner's dilemma. You could say it could be applied to men and women when they lose their communities. Cooperation in very harsh times is in their best interest, but each of them pursues his/her self interest and ends up in a worse situation.

    That is also why working and lower classes have always had harsh rules against prostitution. Because of their economic disadvantages, the working and lower classes as a community (or communities) are always just a few steps away from breaking apart. They are constantly losing strong families. One financial mistake and 5-6 people could end up in poverty with no way to repair their lives.

    It is them who lose daughters and it is their sons who will have to live with its consequences and rebuild a community with nothing. It's definitely not middle class or wealthy people who have to live with the consequences of fragile and imploding commmunities and increased prostitution.

    So being its primary victims, they tend to shame their children more aggressively and even take measures like disowning and cutting off "rotten apples" from the main part/core of their societies in hope they could keep the remaining portion stronger and healthier. Disowning and exclusion is basically a measure to corner and slowly wipe out those "rotten" members. Very harsh indeed.

    • The problem is when you legalize it you run the risk of increasing human traficking.

      When you don't legalize it, pimps can do almost whatever they want with prostitutes and also lead and possibly abuse male customers in even worse ways.

      When you legalize it, you are also normalizing something that feeds on imploding or nonexistent communities of financially struggling individuals.

      From one side, you might be improving legal peostitutes' lives (not illegal ones). From another side, you might be perpetuating their lifestyle and even expanding it. Now, working class girls who might otherwise choose the hard paths during days of struggle because they were too scared of exclusion, might choose a prostitute's life. And while some of them might be able to build their lives, others could get stuck in a viscious circle, just because they thought they could make a quick buck.

      Both ways have their downsides.

    • It's also not good for men, and again I am mostly talking about working and lower class men. Some people talk about a certain group of men and their shyness and loneliness etc. That prostitutes can help them. But no one seems to point out "why" these men are socially retarded and lonely. If you look at them, too many of them come from broken homes. How many incels have single and struggling mothers? How many of them never experienced a mother's love and a father's guidance? There was a psychologist who said prisons are the house of fatherless men. That is statistically true. And just like the fact that brothels need a constant flow of talents, they also need a constant flow of touch-starved and lonely men. The question is: Will a billion dollar sex industry directly and indirectly perpetuate and encourage the "problems" (and yes, they are problems in a civilized society), that turned those girls into talents and those men to lonely, socially retarded virgins?

  • No not at all.

    a lot of clients of sex workers are either married men or young to middle aged.

    As a product from a purely business point of view, then yes you target those most in need of the product and advertise accordingly.

    There is no force, no coercion, everyone knows the legalities of it all, both sides go in to it aware of what is required.

    without it, those ‘lonely men’ would be looking at your daughters, wife, partner, girlfriend, as the place they can get their touched starved lives sorted.

    Also among those ‘lonely men’ are rapists, serial killers and abusers, those sex workers often end up beaten, abused or murdered by those lonely old men.

    If it was legalised and not shamed, then give it a 100 years and those lonely men would likely learn earlier in life how women are, possibly overcome natural shyness, would not be burdened with guilt of going to sex workers.

    Personally it should be legalised and more regulated.

    The answers available are also wrong, it’s not anyone’s fault, other than society at large, it’s not a girl (or guy let’s not forget both genders are involved as are sexualities), equally it’s not a guys fault for needing such a service.

    for example, a guy might have physical or mental reasons he can’t have a relationship, small penis etc, where is the shame of him going to a sex worker, where is the shame of someone making a service available?

    Personally it’s those who would shame a guy for going to a sex worker or those who would shame someone (guy or girl) for working in the sex industry as a whole, that are more to blame.

    In my local paper, the ‘dating’ section used to be called Lonely Hearts, it’s nothing new and there are probably Roman writing tablets asking for lonely legionnaires.

    Finally, as to the point of preying off the lonely, often these girls (and guys) work for an ‘agency’ (often an Escort Agency) and it is these who target a very well proven sales model at lonely guys.

  • No. Because a predator hunts down and strikes against an unwilling target. No one forces a man to go to a hooker. Even if this was the case though, you could argue OnlyFans whores are more predatory, because they are constantly simping to their fan, while people who go to hookers rarely see them more than once. And yes, I've seen an escort before (not a street walker, but a classy escort). No one made me do it. If hookers are predatory, then you'd be arguing the johns who see them have no willpower. That's just as bad as feminists who argue regret sex is rape or that drunk sex is "rape" (but only for the woman, even if both were intoxicated). You can't blame a salesperson for exploiting a weak-willed individual, even if the weak-willed individual is sympathetic.

    • because *simps are constantly simping to their fan,

    • I would agree that onlyfans hoes are engaging in a predatory behavior too. Just because it's not violent doesn't mean it's not predatory. Remember when they used to use cartoons to market cigarettes to kids, it's a bit like that. Not immediately harmful on its face, but pretty fucked up the more you think about it. Or like Whiley Coyote setting up a "free seed" trap. He's not actively doing shit, and the bird comes to him. Honey pots can definitely be predatory.

    • But no one is forcing men to go see hookers. Yes, drug dealers can be seen as a problem to the community, but at some point, you gotta call out the addicts for being addicts, as well. Hookers aren't that different; you could argue they're a lot less harmful than drug dealers since it's sex and not substances that can kill you. We can compromise and say they're no angels, but when you do decide that the johns have some responsibility for their own life, actions, and choices as well? They're not just "victims." I've never even heard anyone make this argument before, and with such emotion attached to it. It's almost like this is personal to you or something.

  • Nope at the end of the day, you pay for what you get. Don't pay for it if you don't want it. Then if your a person who pay's for stuff to get what you don't want... then... nothing can be done about idiots who do that, they will do that anyway.

  • Supply and demand, learn what it is. I doubt you'd say that the electric companies are exploiting all those dumb people who want electricity.

    • There's also a demand for heroin, does that make it a good thing you fucking door stop?

    • There's also a demand for alcohol, it ain't good, does that mean that it should be illegal you fucking cock sucker?

    • You're just mad that nobody is sucking your cock unless you pay them 👍

  • neither its somewhere in the middle. i can't imagine which places would only punish the men. must be some left wing thing

    • US and Canada usually only punish men and not the sex worker when caught.

    • i usually hear the exact opposite in america

    • It's not uncommon for police to pose as hookers here to sting random dudes. I wonder how many of the lonely fuckers kill themselves shortly thereafter? All good if officer Honey trap gets her promotion though I guess.

  • It can be a sexual
    Dysfunction for both parties and often is

  • Hookers are scammers. Think about it.

    In a regular trade, you get an item or service and the seller gets money. Alls fair.

    In prostitution, the buyer gets sex but the prostitute gets sex and money. This isn't a fair trade.

    • Well they're selling a service much like massage therapist or something, it's the preying on loneliness that I really take objection with.

    • But the service is also provided by the client to the hooker for free.
