Maybe I am a whore? Or at least think like one…..

Some of my friends were talking about whether it was morally right or wrong to trading sex to get what you want and it got me thinking. Maybe I am totally warped but why do so many people view sex as dirty or bad. Now I am talking about sex between adults. So with that in mind I am so confused why do we (in general) look at sex as bad. Being a prostitute or a “whore” is that not just a job so to speak.  

For example if not for bills and responsibilities would you or your spouse not rather be home with the family, traveling or doing your hobbies, instead of chained to a job for 8 hours (sometimes more) a day. Is that not “whoring” or “prostituting” your time in exchange for money? 

Forgetting for a minute prostitution is illegal, if a person (remember not just females are prostitutes) does take money for sex why is that considered morally wrong? Who is to say the person providing the sex doesn’t enjoy her job? Again I am not talking about cases where women are forced into situations but in my life I have been friends with plenty of girls who were strippers who had their own “after hours” parties if you know what I mean who really enjoyed their “job” and the money that came from it. I’ve also been friends with a male escort who also really enjoyed his job and all of its perks.  

All I am saying is if I could get someone to pay me for making them a scrapbook I would. I enjoy making them, putting them together and seeing the end product so why would it be any different if my hobby that happens to make money was sex?    

I know some will say that prostitution leads to some people committing adultery but really that is not the person providing the services fault. I would think she (or he) can only assume the person paying is free to do so in every sense of the word. I know that is not always the case but that is not her/his problem now is it.   

For the record I have never been paid to have sex nor have I ever paid someone to have sex with me but with that said I have definitely used sex to get what I want from boyfriends at the time of the relationship and now from my husband. (Not anytime recent but that is another story all together). Just my random thoughts…… what do you think?

    I think this is a great question to ask! Recently my own views on sex have been expanding and how I approach sex on a personal level, as well as how society approaches it has been something I have been pondering very seriously.

    I confess myself interested; I’ve expanded on this in a little blessay of my own. I would never charge anyone for sex, because I enjoy it myself, but when a bloke buys you drinks all night and you go home with him – isn’t that whoring for alcohol? If yes, a lot of women are whores, though they’ll no doubt be angry to hear it!
