    It always makes me really sad that women feel like they need to resort to this. We don't see men running out to be prostitutes when things get bad.


    Not for lack of trying, I'm sure! LOL. My husband always jokes that that's his dream job. I don't think men would be very successful, because how many women do you know would be willing to pay a man for sex? It's just too easy for us women to get!

  • I say do what you have to do to survive. This has happened before. Prostitution was a big thing durning the great depression also. history is just repeating it self. No matter what men will always want sex and be willing to pay for it so prostitues will never be broke.

  • I've always said, sex is the untouchable industry. Even in the worst economy, it thrives.
    BTW, NV has got to be the best place to be a prostitute. They probably have better health care than most of us.

  • I say do what you gotta do safely! Unfortunately drug use is probably going to go up to, but they will be going after prostitutes instead of drug dealers. The system is soooo screwed.

  • i have put in at least forty job applications in the past four days for telework. of course, because some people are corrupt in their advertising a lot of it was for pay to click sites or referral programs. a lot were repeats, at least two were scams.

    i am certain that if i were to apply for the chat sex "actress" job i keep seeing i would have a paycheck in two weeks. it is very tempting.

  • I'm not gonna knock it. Sure it isn't the most "reputable" profession, but it is someone doing what they need to do to survive.
