Freie Marktwirtschaft

“Overall, an estimated 16 percent of men pay for sex in the U.S.”

“And according to HYDRA, a Berlin-based organization that provides legal advice and other aid to prostitutes, up to three quarters of men in Germany, which also has legalized prostitution, have paid for sexual services.” (Other estimates: about one fifth – somehow, these figures don’t seem entirely compatible…)

“Månsson reported that 14 percent of Dutch men have bought sex as compared with nearly 40 percent of men in Spain. (Prostitution is legal in both countries.)”

“In Thailand, where prostitution is illegal but socially accepted, one study suggested that a whopping 95 percent of men have slept with a prostitute.” (Just a lucky guess – their dads or mates take them to a brothel so that the can have their first time with a professional. Yeah for AIDS!)

One out of a multitude of explanations: “These are men whose sexual desire is switched on by not having to care about the prostitute as a human being—the opposite of the intimacy hypothesis.”

“They portray these relationships as intimate despite their commercial nature and limited scope”

Pwoo baby, fwightend you might end up unsatisfied?

“One reason may be that real relationships with women are risky and complicated, features that men do not always want and cannot always handle.”

Women are terribly dangerous and unstable, of course.

People are weird when it comes to relationships, and sex. One guy from China – he’s homosexual – told me (it’s already surprising that he would tell me such things) a few days ago that he hadn’t had intercourse for a while. “But I thought you had a boyfriend?” “I do, I meant with someone else, apart from him.” “Um, you actually want to have sex with a stranger?” “Why not? Everybody does it.” “Well, that attitude is exactly why everyone’s relationships are so dysfunctional.” “hu?” “Soo…I don’t want to appear insensitive or intrude on your privacy, but shouldn’t you be grateful that you found a person with whom you can enter a long-term relationship?” “Am I that ugly?” “Erm, no, I guess not, but with only one gay club in a city of 14m , don’t you think there’s a lack of acceptance of homosexuality in your country?” “It’s legal.” “It’s also legal to eat cucumber ice cream, but few people actually have the inclination to do so, and even less people think that those who do it are not mad…”

No more cucumber jokes, please.
