Prostitute price guide: How far does money go when you go all the way? (INFOGRAPHIC)

Big pics below.
The document allegedly linking Denver mayor-elect Michael Hancock to the Denver Players prostitution ring listed the cost for one session as $275. Which got us to wondering: What services would that buy? And what would you get if you played less... or more?

To answer those questions, we turned to investigative cartoonist Kenny Be, who has assembled a handy price guide, complete with a look at sample ladies and their various specialties. Page down to see how happy your ending can be depending on what's in your wallet.

This is disgustingly offensive and insensitive. I cannot believe this was posted and that anyone thought this would be funny. Completely degrading and dehumanizing.

These low-brow chuckles for knuckle-heads sure took time to create. When I clicked on the link I was curious. Ultimately I was disappointed, though. Clearly someone at Westword enjoys laughing at their own humour. I yawned. The illustrations are a fine collection without editorial effort. A bit sad that talented artists get abused by cheap publishers. Perhaps they could publish another series of illustrations: writer, illustrator, photographer, graphic designer, web programmer ... and how much Westword pays. That would be more relevant and fun.

2011 or 2014 who fucking cares, this is fucking disgusting and a perpetuation of the exploitation of female bodies. How much would the author or cartoonist go for? Zero dollars and my spit in their face. This is harmful for young women and it should be taken down.

If this doesn't stop guys from ever even thinking about paying for sex...I don't know what would. Good public service announcement...a lot more effective than all the outrage, disgust and boring stats, posted in the comment section.

Not funny to joke about. Do you have any idea what women in this situation have been through? Completely done with Westword.

Also, if you don't get why Westword would publish Kenny Be, you don't get Westword. At all. By all means, unfollow and go read the fricking Denver Post.

Denver Westword Ignore it. Thanks for the flashback humor. Love the part where it's 2014, so they try to make it about feminism instead of Hitchcock.

I love how the comments from 2011 are all "lol" and then you have our new posts acting like these were drawn today XD

Has no one ever read Kenny Be? His stuff is deliberately shocking. I applaud the absolute non-PCness of this cartoon.

All the pearl clutches in the comments make it clear who has known what Westword has been for the last 20 plus years, and who doesn't.

"This was such a good idea 3 years ago that we thought we'd give it another spin!" - hopefully some dude's last words as a Westword employee.

Westword - I guess no one is going to accuse you of journalism anytime soon. Here are a few facts about the women you've chosen to ridicule and further exploit: - Female prostitutes have a death rate that is 40x higher than other women -The majority of prostitutes were sexually abused as children (studies point to the figure being between 75%-98% of all prostitutes) - 68% of prostituted women have PTSD in the same range as combat veterans and victims of torture - The average age of girls entering prostitution is between 12-13 Are you still thinking of how far your dollar could go Michael Roberts?

Michael Roberts -- believe it or not -- IS writing with a purpose...the purposes being to TROLL WestTurd's very audience. U took the bait.

What happened to "comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable"? Talk about punching down. Let's point and laugh at the most desperate and hard-up members of society. Oh, you're addicted to drugs because you were sexually abused as a child? Hilarious!

Is this appropriate for Facebook let alone your paper? Since Westword clearly has no clue, the answer is NO!!

This is making light of the oppression of women. This is offensive. This is not news. This is not entertainment. Learn to write with a purpose.
