Do men in Europe and US hire sex workers a lot?

I live in a semi-conservative country. Some of the people thinks you should wait for marriage and some of them dont.

And there is too much pressure for women in conservative families, they think women should stay Virgin but men can sleep around.

And that sitiation causes most of men to hire whores. Its really common.

Is that a thing in Europe or US?

  • Prostitution is illegal in most of the US (there are some rural counties in the state of Nevada where it is legal in licensed brothels - NOT the counties where Las Vegas, Reno, or Tahoe are located, though), so while it definitely exists, it's almost non-existent among the middle class.

    You have a small percentage of the top wealthy men who can afford very expensive, high-class prostitutes ($1000+ an hour), and do, and then you have the prostitution in the lower class. Streetwalkers fall in this category, but there are plenty of girls in any lower-class neighborhood who will find guys with money and sell sex on their own. The lower class is a lot less interested in following societal rules to begin with, so of course, they tend to have no problem with prostitution. I'd guess that participation there is closer to 30-40%.

    A *few* men in the middle class may find the few more middle-class women who see a few customers a week at home, but in large part, outright prostitution isn't common among the middle class - it's too easy for them to get caught, they can't afford the cost of lawyers to fight their case or to bribe the right people, and they have too much to lose.

    It's different in Europe, as a number of European countries have legalized prostitution, so there is more middle class participation, but it's still a fairly small percentage, probably no more than 10-15% of men who have ever even done it once.

  • The majority of men do not. I think nobody knows accurate numbers. There are studies that show low double digit percentages, but I have doubts about those studies.

    Personally I've known extremely few men who admitted to hiring prostitutes. I've only known a couple of people in my entire life who admitted to doing it regularly. I have no idea how many have done it but never said anything about it.

    • If if was a common thing i think they would be more free to admit that, like in my country.

    • There is a stigma about it. So a lot of people won't admit to it. In other words, it's not really accepted by most people and society as a whole. Even people who say it's OK still see it as an inferior way of getting sex. A lot of people will think it's for losers, or perverts, or whatever. It's definitely not seen as a positive or widely accepted behavior.

    • Like it should be...

  • I worked with two guys that got escorts once per month. It was too expensive to do it more than that. They said that they had no interest in maintaining a girlfriend, and the escorts were cheaper. But the whores where I live are downright scary. But these two fellas went to Canada and shelled out some coin for the top shelf brand.

  • Not in the USA its illegal in most areas, but men in the USA would more if we could.

  • Not in Western Europe I know a minority of men do, but 99% do not and never have. I never have

  • Some times there is an itch to scratch and you can't reach it with your own hand😉

  • I paid a girl on Tinder to have sex with me once.
    I was tired of waiting around and playing games trying to get in their pants and I had money to blow. Not a big deal!

    (You'd be shocked at how many of them jumped at the idea of getting paid to do what they're there for anyway lol. Seriously I got like 20 takers and just picked the best one. Bunch of naughty whores! All of you)

  • Guessing more common in the EU.

  • In USA it's not common but definitely happens maybe 10 percent I'd say from working in the party industry for a long time.

  • Yeah they do

  • I think mostly Europe is no sex before marriage more than the US. Also there is probably more sexualized things in America like strip clubs, sex shops, and sexual establishment's. Also there are legal whore houses in parts of the US. Woman or more open to have sex also with men more regularly than probably Europe. It kinda hard say with how many people there are in Europe and the State's.

  • I strongly believe a lot more men out there do this than will ever admit or ever disclose

  • Well let's look at it objectively. There wouldn't be prostitutes if no one was buying.

  • I don’t think it’s way common but definitely does happen

  • I have used them and then I haven't. I liked hiring them though because sex is almost 100 guaranteed

  • I haven’t hired a sex worker, per se. I do live in the same house as another female sex worker where we both have free use sex with each other and sometimes ourselves…. cuz we’re married.

  • In the US they cheat the religious rules by having anal sex.

    In Europe it is not common.

    • Omg anal sex thing happens here too lol mostly hijabi women have anal sex to "stay virgin" and they call me whore bc i have sex with my boyfriend 😂 Its funny to see both Christian and Muslim religious people are so similar about this.
