Denver Players prostitution ring: Denver Police release client records in heavily censored form

In June, political observers wondered if Mayor Michael Hancock would be damaged by alleged links to the Denver Players prostitution ring. But the story petered out, and Denver Police's release of client lists and more, on view below, is unlikely to revive it, for reasons that frustrate Complete Colorado's Todd Shepherd, who broke the original story.

Complete Colorado's latest salvo, "The DP Scandal," (with "DP" representing Denver Players, Denver Police and the Denver Post) features a slew of documents shared by the cops, including a client list, a phone log and two collections of appointment sheets. In all, Shepherd counts approximately 1,300 names. However, they've been largely blacked out, as have all phone numbers with the exception of the last four digits.

From the defunct Denver Sugar website.
The inclusion of these partial numbers is sometimes accompanied by handwritten initials -- and Shepherd urges anyone who recognizes a combination of initials and numbers to contact him. Without such a lucky break, however, it will likely be impossible to identify specific clients and determine if, as has long been rumored, they include politicians, sports stars and other members of the Denver elite.

That this material remains hidden clearly irritates Shepherd, who spends much of his article blasting the DPD for possibly covering up wrongdoing to protect powerful interests and the Post for losing interest in the topic despite editor Greg Moore's published claim that "we aren't finished with this story."

As for the documents themselves, they at least provide a window into a business whose illicit doings led to wrist slaps for its two main operators, Brenda Stewart and Scottie Ewing -- the source for most of the Hancock-related material.

Some clients are listed as a "VIP." Others entries feature the phrase "DO NOT BOOK." And there are plenty of notes about out-of-towners (Georgia, California, Wyoming, Texas, Utah, Pennsylvania and New York are among the states represented) and individuals' predilections. Examples of the latter:

"Creepy, books multiple hours, multiple ladies;" "Allow extra 15 minutes for him to shower, aka Farmer B[expurgated];" "Tries to prolong the appointment, hagle [sic] down rates;" "Has a clothing fetish;" "Creepy rubberband man;" "Too aggressive and practically noone [sic] will see him;" "Black listed forever, from Boulder;" "Calls a LOT before actually booking;" "Sometimes a drama queen, gets too emotional about the girls he sees."

Are any of these folks Denver notables? At this point, the odds of us finding out appear to be shrinking. Here are the documents obtained by Complete Colorado:

They should all be commended for providing the D.A.'s office it's case on paper.

I'm glad they aren't providing the list of clients to the public. They didn't get caught in the act

and professional athletes need to ways to blow their millions. How else is Tebow supposed to

If a poor person solicit an undercover decoy on the streets, or a middle class guy seek prostitution services on Backpage.com, and got caught in the sting operation, his name, PHOTO, and sometimes address will be on the newspaper or police website. Yea, there must be wealthy clients so their identity cannot be reveal. The way the prostitution arrest are not handled equally between the rich and the poor in US.

This sting operation is another PR stunt the police and the prosecutors are doing their job when they are NOT. They leave many escort agencies in Colorado operating. If they really want to enforce the prostitution laws, they can close down all the escort agencies in Colorado by sting operations.   There are many escort agencies police do not sting.  They just pick on one high class agencies once for a while to create propaganda and leave many still operating. The illusion that the media, police and prosecutor is creating is that the wealthy and high class agencies are not exempt from their prosecution when many high class agencies are. This is to create an illusion that the government is treating poor and rich the same when the government is NOT. Prostitution is decriminalized for rich but criminalized for the poor and middle class. You will NOT find any of these wealthy clients of THIS agency arrested for patronizing a prostitute.  If you believe that these stings are design to deter prostitution, you are buying into the government propaganda. Prostitution sting operations in US are weeding out competition for high class escort agencies and create propaganda that the government is enforcing the laws. The police focus their stings on low class escorts and street prostitutes and leave many high class agencies who serve the wealthy alone. There are 300 plus escort agencies in NYC and the police do nothing about them. Sometimes human trafficking victims get caught up in them. The enforcement of the prostitution laws is design to keep the poor and the middle class moral. The wealthy and the politicians do not want the poor and the middle class is immoral because they cannot control them. Prostitution is NOT a victimless crime for the middle and poor people. Prostitution business by the poor and the middle class brings in allot of other crimes the wealthy and the politicians do not want to deal with. Prostitution stings are designed to keep the rich people safe because they do not want to deal with the crimes associated with poor and middle class engaging in prostitution. There are rich people that think they are special and the laws concerning prostitution do not apply to them. There are many wealthy men who hire sugar children, escorts, porn stars, playboy model, and adult entertainer to meet their relationship needs. The police do not interfere with the wealthy prostitution transaction. Just look at the Saudi Royal Family. Religion and morality is to control the poor Saudis so they do not become a problem. The Saudi Royal Family lives above the law because they are special.

look.. you pay for sex one way or another, and even in a committed relationship.  at least with an escort you know what you are getting.  With an escort, its not the sex you're paying for, its for them to get out when you're done and not have to deal with the BS.  And frankly with the divorce rate, I think that escorts are the cheaper way to go.. at least you dont loose half your ass when you leave them.

Tony Sopranos said it best "I didn't pay her for sex, I paid her to leave when we were done".As a escort I love the fact that I don't have to pick up a man's dirty socks in the morning.

Oh mrsrobinson, fear not! Your frantic, self-deprecating rants turned out to not be totally fruitless!  In fact, it's totally understandable why you are a prostitute.  You come from an abusive background with daddy/men issues, as you yourself indicated by stating you married young to an abusive person and that all men lie and promise things.  You were also in the Florida Department of Family Services, as you stated yourself.  You also believe all men have little to no respect for women in general, but sadly, don't see that you contribute to this problem. Second,  you  have proven that you have no problem sitting on your personal pedastool and looking down on other women who "sleep around" or are "sluts and skanks", becauseYOU are better than THESE TYPES of women because you getting paid makes you so.  "Escorts have more standards than these women" ??? Prostitutes are the most non-descriminating sluts on the planet, sweetheart.  You sleep with ANYONE for money, including those that are unattractive, as you said yourself in one of your many posts.  I hope it does become legal, because whores (and sluts and skanks, which are YOUR words and by definition, what YOU are) like you would be run out of business.  You would be forced to pay taxes and keep records, and no man in his right mind would want a paper trail like that following him around.  Not to mention that with making something legal comes governmental regulation that no hooker or John would want.  I would love to see proof that you put your kid through college and NEVER had public assistance, etc.  And for the record, I have a (former) friend who is a hooker, and she is absolutely out of her mind crazy, takes pills, lost her children and has attempted suicide a few times...but the mother of the year thinks it's worth it for the money, go figure! Lastly, mrsrobinson, you shouldn't forget to take your anti-dellusion medication.  I mean, the FBI is tapping your phone and the cops are out to get you?! Thank you so much, mrsrobinson, for coming back here and clearing up any possible misconceptions one may have about prostitution by proving them all correct through your own responses. Kudos to you!

Oh I love this classic story of "the wife gets half!"  I have had several friends and family members divorce and it's never been bitter or a  battle over money and the wife most certainly didn't walk away with half of anything.  If you're married and use prostitutes, I so hope your poor wife finds out and puts you through the ringer....because you sir, would absolutely deserve it.

As a escort I have to listen to men complain that there wives got the house in the divorce and its all I can do to hold my tongue because if their wife raised their kids and waited on this guy hand and foot for 20 years she deserves much more than a house.Men show there REAL VIEWS when women are not around, many talk trash about all women.It goes to show many men have very little respect for women (whether they are whores or not) they show little appreciation for their spouses and I  have come to the conclusion that men treat you how you allow them too,But then again I feel bad for the guy who has a wive that has refused to have sex for 5 years, after all this is suppose to be the man she loves.

This is such a violation of these peoples privacy.  She was a escort, who charges for HER TIME.  Just because there is a client list doesn't prove each person on the list did something illegal.  This is nothing more than a MORAL WITCH HUNT at the tax payers expense.  We spend 250 million last year to stalk and arrest 80,000 consenting adults who met in private.Meanwhile we have created STUPID LAWS that put all females in the adult entertainment industry at risk.  We created laws that allow our teens to run of with their boyfriends, and end up being exploited and we want to treat then like VICTIMS, instead of the UNGOVERNABLE TEENS they are. Its not OK to enable these teens, as we should lock them up in boot camp until they can behave themselves and hold the PARENTS and TEENS accountable for their own behavior.  The most HARM, HARASSMENT and DISCRIMINATION is focused on the escort. She is stalked, preyed upon by BAD COPS, Serial killers (Long Island has 10 dead escorts buried there and they think its an ex cop) criminalized so we can never get a real job again, or even fair housing. We are forced to become social outcasts of our own communities and we enter the lifestyle due to POVERTY, yet there are NO SERVICES FOR WOMEN WHO WANT OUT OF THE LIFESTYLE, but we have no problem spending 250 million a year TO PUNISH THESE WOMEN because of their sexual beliefs. We teach society that these women "get what they deserve" and mean while lets look at what else your tax dollars bought.2009 CT escort 55 years old, was arrested they found 30,000 in cash and a bank account with over 600,000 and they legally stole this women's life savings, and most likely this independent escort is now homeless.2011 Ct chief of police arrested for CHILD PORN2011 Lowell MA cop arrested for RAPING STREET HOOKER.2010 Boston court house clerk, sentenced to 2 years for threatening women with pending cases for sex inside HOLDING CELLS.2010 PA chief of police engages in sex acts with 13 women and then arrests them all for prostitution.2010 PA cop arrested for running a prostitution ring, renting the women cars and providing them heroine.  He got paid leave from work and the charges dismissed.2011 Ohio cop gets caught with a 17 years old hooker and admits he has paid her for sex several times and isn't not charged with a felony.2011 When they dismissed the charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, after they had pulled him off a plane leaving the country after RAPING A NEW YORK MAID, then as soon as they find out the maid was a ESCORT, they drop all the charges and call her a liar, even though other women have come forward and said he had raped them too.This is just a few,, they are in the media daily for ABUSING WOMEN, we even have 2 cops on trial for murdering their wives and these are the people we put in charge of STALKING ADULT FEMALE ESCORTS DOWN ONLINE.We recently had a FL jury convict a female escort for prostitution at trial, even though the state had not proved the case, and the judge had to throw  the conviction out because THE STATE NEVER PROVED IT.  I think its SAD that a jury would let Cassey Anthony go when they could prove the case against her, but not the ESCORT. The cops are arresting escorts all the time even though they have not proven that they were breaking the law. Just having a legal escort ad, will get a judge to sign a warrant to use a swat team to kick in the door of the women's home.This HATRED we encourage society to FEEL toward ESCORTS is a form of BULLYING, and we wonder why have to create new laws to stop our kids from bullying, and this is the message we still sell to society. We know they can't police 1% of the adult industry on a good day, so its all based on FEAR, this story tells all men not to provide escorts with screening information because they MIGHT FIND THE BLACKBOOK, and meanwhile we have dead escorts piling up on a Long Island beach. Yet they claim they want to RESCUE US because we are being EXPLOITED.We have created JOHN schools, so men can pay a fine and take a class and walk away with NO CRIMINAL RECORD, but if your Governor Spitzner, your not prosecuted and you get your own show on CNN after your caught with escorts.Lets look at how the MEDIA treats these women.  They print the lies the cops tell them about these arrests.  The cops CLAIM they saw a online ad offering sex for cash when the truth is the ad had a rate for escorts time and companionship. The the media PRINTS THE WOMENS NAME + ADDRESS, even though she hasn't been convited of anything yet, and now any STALKER READING THE PAPER CAN GO MURDER HER.  Yet when these cops abuse, rape and murder women, or monsters prey on our children, WE DON"T PRINT THEIR NAMES + ADDRESSES. Registered sex offenders are FREE to walk around in OUR PARKS, but we STALK DESPERATE WOMEN DOWN ONLINE.  Talk about a LACK OF COMPASSION and HUMANITY, and DECENTLY....  We should be ASHAMED that we TOLERATE such HATRED AGAINST THESE WOMEN over their SEXUALITY.  We use to treat gay people just as badly, and society finally WOKE UP and realized Gays were just people too. Guess what ESCORTS are people too, these are our mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins and friends.But the lowest of the low as far as MORALS and DECENTLY, is to use this BLACK BOOK story to try and smear politicians regardless of the RISK that this puts on all the escorts.The most IRONIC part of the MORAL WITCH HUNT, is that is is LEGAL TO BE A SKANK and give sex away to strangers.  Turn on the Nancy Grace show, and see tons of women bringing home strange men, with their small kids in the next room and then acting all surprised when there kids are molested and go missing.  But this is LEGAL and seems to be sociably acceptable. Society claims they don't want to live near a massage spas "where a happy ending might be taking place" but they don't care if their neighbor is regularly bringing home strange men and behaves like a SKANK in front of the neighbors.Any citizen of the USA deserves the right to dial 911 for HELP without fear of being persecuted over their sexual beliefs, especially when they are a consenting adult and are in PRIVATE. We found when the Craigslist killer murder the Boston girl, he then went to RI and robbed a escort and she was able to dial 911 because INDOOR PROSTITUTION was legal and she had SANCTION + PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW. The attorney genersl lied to the public and said Craigslist would not cooperate even though they gave them the killers IP address so they could track him down to his apartment and arrest him. The TRUTH is the attorney generals office DOES NOT WANT TO COOPERATE WITH THE ESCORTS, they only want to PUNISH them all because these women WON"T GIVE SEX AWAY, like other women.  Its a form of SLAVERY and SURPRESSION, because we all know ALL MEN NEGOTIATE FOR SEX,and NO WOMEN has sex without EXPECTING SOMETHING. So men are not even paying for sex, they are paying to get out of "the normal obligation".  Men have learned even when they go out and find a SKANK giving it away at the bar, that when they wake up with this CRAZY women who is trying to ATTACH HERSELF to their lives, that it wasn't free. Even married women negotiate for sex, do you think they would continue to "give it up" if the husbands didn't work and pay the bills and provide for the families.Yet in REALITY any person who was cold and hungry enough would turn a trick for a blanket and burger.Moral are based on religious beliefs and have nothing to do with someones CHARACTER.

Mrs. Robinson, you are delusional and likely have not had the pleasure of being in a loving relationship.  And for that, I am sorry for you.  I think that is why you are so confused by all of this.  Escorts enable cowardice and betrayal for relationships (clearly unhealthy relationships if they are utlizing prostitution) however, these men should be owning up to their failed relationships instead of burying their **** in another woman.I agree that police forces/politicians are extremely corrupt.  But, that is besides the point.  Two wrongs do not make a right.I also agree that these women who turn to the profession are USUALLY victims.  Either they are runaways, had violent/unstable home lives, exposure to domestic violence, the list goes on and on as to why some women turn to this profession.There should be a better form of assistance for these women.  They should be REHABILITATED away from this form of "profession."  Once recognized as an escort, there should be programs and assistance available to help these women lead fulfilling and respectable lives.  Therapy sessions, housing assistance, education assistance, etc. would all be steps in the right direction.To some degree, yes, these women should be recognized as being 'escorts', because there is a degree of shame associated with this profession.  Your body is special, and no different than the SKANK you refer to, you should not give it away (for money or anything else).Sex is a wonderful thing, and in a perfect world, it's designed to bring people together in a loving way.  Too much is put on the physical aspect of sex, and not enough on the emotional.  Things like escorts, some forms of porn, etc. cheapens sexuality, and continues to breed generations only concerned with the 'end result.'I love sex, like any other person.  But, I love sex with my significant other, and I have been blessed in that regard.  it saddens me that not everyone has been able to find that.  But if we continue to cheapen sexuality, the percentage of people who actually do find that has and is going to continue to diminish.

Once again you ASSUME everyone wants to be married.We recently did research on regular dating sites and we found 90% of the men lie about their names, and we found most women had no problem with meeting this guy in public without confirming who he is, so they do not bother to check if the man is an ax murder before heading out to dinner.We also found women say if you don't give it up by the 3rd date the guy won't call you again, and men say the average guy can walk into a club, tell a girl she is pretty and buy her dinner and she will take him home and have unprotevted sex with him.But you only want to examine the ESCORTS SEXUAL BEHAVIOR.WAKE UP Escort have MORE STANDARS than many women,and its much harder to get an appointment with us, than it is to go to a club and pick a skank up.But even guys that scroll the bars looking for naive women with low self esteems, then find out they had a wild night of sex but awoke to some crazy women trying to ATTACH herself to their lives.NO women has sex accepting nothing.No man has sex and doesn't expect to pay something or have an oblifgation to her afterwards,This is why datig sites are full of losers, who lie to women about who they are, what their real intent is, and it is more like a 15 year old boy lying to the girl and telling her he loves her just to get in her pants.  Many men are still playng that game in their 50's.Yet you claim its the ESCORT that isn't being HONEST and has no CHARACTER.

"women who turn to the profession are USUALLY victims" - way to put words in mrsrobinson2010's mouth. Most prostitutes BECOME victims AFTER they get into the profession, not before. And most of that victimization comes from it being illegal, and from people like you who look at prostitutes with disgust.

I think the SHANKS having sex with strangers for FREE have Daddy issues, and  perhaps some women don't want to be  a steady relationship.  Yes many of us have issues with MEN not our fathers, because we have learned that men will lie,and promise us anything just got get in our pants and even when we treat them like a kings, they still do not appreciate their women. When your husband can leave you with 3 kids and then your forced to track him down for child support  you find marriage does not equal security just as sex does not equal love. You should be looked down upon for being so judgemental and your lack of compassion.Please explain how me being a escort affects YOUR MARRIAGE, because you keep CLAIMING IT DOES.

Your correct I was never a victim until the cops arrested me, and then raped me while I was incarcerated. I currently have the FBI stalking me by calling my cell phone from one of their main offices and had to go hire an attorney over it, so he could document the harassment. This is happening to thousands of women all over the country.My arrest went much different than govern Spitzner, I did not get my own show on CNN, but I did have a swat team kick in the door to my private residence because they ASSUMED I WAS HAVING SEX FOR A FEE.We recently had a fl jury convict a women of prostitution even though the state did not prove the case(escorts are being arrested daily even though they have not done anything illegal) so the judge threw the conviction out.I think it is sad that they will let Cassey Anthony go free when they can't prove the case against her but not the escort, who has only been charged with a pubic nuisance disorder.http://www.naplesnews.com/news...

You are clearly the self righteous idiot here, but I will refrain from calling you such. Is it really necessary to to be nasty and resort to name calling, just because someone doesn't agree with you?  I realize it took awhile to type all of that nonsense but then you went and copied & pasted it to other prostitution articles all over the web. You got the same response everywhere - most people don't share in your opinion. Grow up.

I am happy for you if you really are in a wonderful relationship.  I too enjoy the benefits of a happy, long term marriage.  We still totally dig each other and have sex quite often.  But the fact remains, being in a successful relationship and sex are two very different things.  Being in a relationship is much harder.  Sex is a natural desire and in and of itself is completely separate from a relationship although I do believe & agree that sex is much better with someone you have bonded with.  But that doesn't mean that the others shouldn't have sex.  Its really none of our business what people do behind closed doors.  And I don't see any benefit in being judgmental of those who, for whatever reason, choose to engage with a prostitute.  At least they are paying for it and not taking it.  At least the guys aren't manipulating women, using them, telling them they love them, etc just to get sex for free. I have more respect for these men than the creeps who take sex or otherwise manipulate to get it. If a person, for whatever reason is unable to function in a healthy relationship, I feel bad for them but I don't judge them for the decisions they make and I certainly wouldn't criticize or belittle them.  Exactly what are you getting out of all of this?

My mother was a widowed, single mother of four with no high school diploma.  At any given time my mother worked two or three jobs (waiting tables, cleaning houses), went to school and managed to be there for her children to send us off to school and tuck us in at night.  She worked her a-- off, was exhausted and made little money...but she earned my life long love, respect and gratitude.  So this whole "I had to do what I had to do" thing is ridiculous.  My mother did what she had to do to feed her kids.  Prostitutes simply do what's easy to do.

I am sure back then when your mom had 3 jobs and 4 kids that the dollar was worth more than 3 cents of its original worth, I also doubt that there was 12% unemployment rates nor did homes cost at least 200,000 and that health care costs that MOST PEOPLE CAN"T AFFORD. She did not live in a time when millions of people are being forced from their homes due to foreclosures and 14% of the country was on food stamps, and the homeless rate is higher now than ever. We no longer have all the SOCIAL SERVICES that we did years ago when your mom was raising her family. I am sure you mom did a great job and is a wonderful person but what does that have to do with the RIGHT FOR ALL WOMEN TO CHOSE. Your mom was much more fortune than many women today, but have no doubt if her kids had been hungry or cold enough she could have been persuaded to turn a trick for a blanket and burger. As a escort I have been able to raise and support my kid, without any public assistance, and even put her through college and paid off her student loans so she start off her adult life debt FREE. I never brought ANY MEN into my home in all the years my daughter was in my household, and I managed to raise her without her running off with a boyfriend that ends up exploiting her. Nor have I behaved like many women on the Nancy Grace show that bring home strange men, and have sex with their small children in the next room.I did work for many years, as a NANNY, a home health worker and also at a group home for retarded and autistic adults. My sexuality is suppose to be PROTECTED by the Constitution, and our current laws are based on RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.My mission in life is PROMOTE safety for escorts, help create laws that make sense by decriminalize what adults do in private and CREATE SERVICES for the women who do want to leave the industry, meanwhile making MEN accountable for their behavior and stop accepting the excuse "that the man didn't know she was only 17", allow escorts to pay taxes so they can obtain health insurance and pay into social security and have the same police protecting given to all other citizens.I could have easily have been your mother, sister, aunt or cousin or girlfriend, escorts are people that do not deserve the discriminating and prejudice that we showed GAY people years ago.We do not asks that you agree with our chose, only that you respect our right to CHOSE.

Virgo

I sincerely doubt its all that easy to be a prostitute.  Most don't earn enough to keep themselves up, much less raise kids, save, and retire on.  Your mother should be commended.  She made an honorable choice.  Prostitution isn't for everyone.  I couldn't do it no matter how high class or high paying the clientele is. As a woman, I feel compassion for ladies who have to do it and don't want to. I feel even deeper compassion for those who are beaten, etc.  I kind of admire the ones who do it because they want to and totally envious of those who get paid $5,000 for one lousy evening with government dignitary.

Good for your mom, but it's unfair of you to attack mrsrobinson2010. What do you know of anybody else's situation and the availability of jobs to them. It's hard enough for people to find one job nowadays, never mind 3.And if you think prostitution is easy you have obviously never met or honestly talked to one. One of my best friends used to be an escort and selling her body has screwed her up psychologically to the point where she is unable to keep any relationship going now. I really believe that it has killed something off inside her, and it's such a shame because she is a great girl with so much to offer.

What's easy is looking down your nose at something you find reprehensible and 'would never stoop to', but what right have you got to force your beliefs on others? I hate, with a passion, smoking and that i have to hold my breath every time i enter / exit a building to get through the volcanic ash cloud at the entrance - but i still have to endure it. What makes me feel a little better is knowing that all those smokers have to pay through their noses for all the taxes levied on their cigarettes. Wouldn't you rather that we were able to tax prostitution and better the government's coffers? I mean for Peet's sake, it's not called the oldest profession in the world for nothing - have we still not learned that no matter how illegal we make it it will still not go away?

II start escorting at age 18. The Fl dept of child services let me marry a 41 year old man when I was just 17, I left him before I was 18 because he was abusive and an alcoholic and was HOMELESS at age 18 because they system had failed me, so out on to the streets and within a few weeks of my 18th birthday I got my first prostitution charge. The same thign happens to millions of teens each year.I worked in the health care field for years as a single parent, did not get any public assistance and lost my home to foreclosure in 2007.In 2008 I started escorting again, as I had to get my daughter through college and was not willing to go live in the streets and be homeless.Millions of women are starting to escort each year DUE TO POVERTY, and even the ones that have REAL JOBS only escort part time to make up the difference because nobody pays a wage you can actually live on.Yes I make 250 a hr, I also pay thousands in advertising and hotels each month, but in my FREE TIME I DO CHARITY work at many local charities. I am also an advocate for women's rights and work with the ACLU, COYOTE,SWANK, SWAAY.ORG and am working on a documentary to EDUCATE THE PUBLIC.All women have the right to make all choices regarding their own bodies, if you have the right to pick up a SHANK, go to her home and have sex with her while her small children are in the next room, ten why don't I have the right to have sex with another consenting adult in my home.I managed to raise a daughter, without her running away, she finished high school and college ad has been exployeed in her field for a year n0w, she has moved out and is self sufficient other than her student loans that i continue to pay BY ESCORTING.And you think the DECEIT thing for me to do, is to have let me and my kid become homeless and live in the streets.

Actually, my friend put herself through university and bought an apartment building. The reason i didn't mention her was because 1. i got caught up in my monologue and forgot  and 2. it wouldn't have mattered anyway because no reason is good enough for people with your mindset.There is no point continuing this discussion since neither one of us is likely to change their mind. I guess what it all comes down to is that i'm happy being an open-minded, accepting, live-and-let-live kind of person. Are you happy being a hate-mongerer?

If a woman wants to whore herself out for a pretty, new purse (which, since you didn't answer Guest question about why your friend worked as a prostitute, let's assume that she just likes the money) that does not affect me at all.  If a man (single or not) wants to visit a prostitute, I could care less.  But let's not make either party out to be victims.  You comparing the nobility of a hooker that makes, what? $200+ an hour, to a Social Worker who makes, what? $30,000/year, or better yet, a fast food worker who makes $8/hr, is beyond a stretch, don't you think?  Sorry if people don't boo hoo for all the terrible things prostitutes have to go through.  They obviously think the money (which is MOST important, let's not forget!) is worth it.

Oh yes, by all means let's blame prostitutes for the fact that some men cheat. Because we all know all whores just force them into her bed, whether they're in a relationship or not, right? Besides, no single guys ever hire prostitutes. *eyeroll*I suppose i shouldn't be so suprised at, judging from the like counts against the comments here, how prudish the US is. I kinda feel sorry for you. Sex is wonderful, delicious, good exercise and great fun. Yet you come across as someone who is rather disgusted by it and thinks it should only ever be between the same woman and man in a committed relationship, behind closed doors, and for all that is holy don't even THINK of introducing anything kinky like sex toys or porn to liven up the situation. If two consenting adults want to get their freak on, all the more power to them. If one of them is getting paid to do it, fine, as long as they are not getting forced into prositution against their will. If the paying adult is already in a committed relationship but still decides to hire a prostitute anyway, then 1. there is something already wrong in that relationship and 2. that is wholly the responsibility of the adulterer. I know you like to think all prostitutes are evil and should be eradicated, but seriously? You're going to blame them for a man who does not love his partner enough to keep it in his pants??

"So somehow legalizing it would make it less emotionally rattling, safer or respectable?" Hell to the YES! Seriously? You're actually posing a question of would something be safer if it was legal?? Are you really that ignorant?? Let's put it this way - even though some people abuse it, alcohol is legal. Think back to your history lessons on the prohibition. And now compare those roaring twenties that brought us the likes of Al Capone, and today's situation where worst case scenario you might embarrass yourself after one to many Long Island Ice Teas. Can you really not see how forcing something onto the black market increases criminality?

As for whether it's easy money to lie on your back and count ceiling tiles - i was trying not to put it as crudely as this but since you seemed to miss my point - think back to all the horrible dates you've ever had in your life. Imagine all the disgusting, smelly guys you've ever seen outside service stations. Try to picture the ugliest men you know naked. Most prostitutes can't afford to say no because they don't like the look of somebody, or think they are offensive. So they have to shut off part of themselves to be able to have sex with all manner of guys, and look like they're enjoying it. Does it affect them emotionally? Yes, undoubtedly. Does the fact that they have to sneak around, be scared of getting nabbed by cops, be scared of getting kidnapped by some psycho and killed, be scared of getting beat up by some pimp, etc. make it worse? HELL YES!And by the way, don't think that's the only profession ever to scar people that work in it. What about the fast food worker who can't face ever eating fast food again knowing what they know about how it is prepared. Or the computer programmer who finds out that his skills are being used to create weapons. Or the social worker who has to go see dysfunctional families every day, see tearstricken children's faces every day, and know that they can't do much to improve the poor child's situation. You think your work doesn't affect you? Think again. Now granted, certain jobs aren't for everybody. But does that mean you get to sit on your high horse and condemn people who ARE able to, and choose to do it? Whatever happened to live and let live???

So why should we feel sorry for your friend? Since you put it out there, why was she forced into escorting? Was she going to be homeless? Has kids or a drug habit to feed? Had to pay for life saving medical treatment for her ailing Grandmother? Or is that she has a love of Coach purses that she can't afford simply working behind the make-up counter at the mall?  I'm also curious as to how legalizing and taxing prostitution would in any way help women like your friend cope with the emotional toll of such a profession.  So somehow legalizing it would make it less emotionally rattling, safer or respectable? Sorry, but your friend did take the easy way, and more often than not the easy way always turns out to be the hard way in the end.  She can't maintain healthy romantic relationships? Well isn't that some Karma for the deceit that she helped men facilitate in their relationships for a couple hundred an hour.

For you to present prostitutes like you are all some kind of martyrs who are unfairly persecuted is comical. To believe that there are no victims in prostitution and that if it were legal, the bad things associated with it would go away, is a farce.  Paige Birgfeld's "activities between two consenting adults" left her children motherless and with a legacy that their mother was a hooker.  If prositituion was legal, would that have in any way saved Pagie Birgfield? Her children are victims.  You scream about tax dollars going towards policing prostitution then you say you want paid-by-taxes programs to help women stop hooking....well my bet is that you haven't paid a dime of taxes on the money you make.  You don't like making $12 an hour, then go to school and get an education.  Get a real job and some self-respect.

Escorting is a REAL JOB, and we have run our ads in the yellow pages for over 30 years and I have been incorporated, have a fein number and pay taxes. Most escorts pay 12% tax every day they rent a hotel room to work, they pay7% on every dollar they spend and they have tons of expenses due to advertising, websites, bail, attorney and court fees and fines, and OUR CURRENT LAWS REFUSE TO LET THEM PAY TAXES unless they work for an agency or spa. You ASSUME you know what is what. My mission is to PROMOTE ESCORT SAFETY by decriminalizing us so we can dial 911 and report crimes and advocate for laws that MAKE SENSE.There is 10 dead escorts in Long Island, and one of them ran up to a home screaming "help help, he is trying to kill me", and when the homeowner offered to call the cops, she screamed "no cops" and ran off into the night, and is now DEAD. In 2009 when the Craigslist killer went to Rhode Island and robbed a escort after he murdered the girl in Boston, he was CAUGHT because the escort he robbed dialed 911 and reported it and she did so because she had protection under the law. Then they criminalized us in Nov 2009 and took away our sanction and protection.Prostitution laws were created as PUBLIC NUISANCE DISORDERS to keep a women from showing her wares in public, they were not intended for the cops to stalk women down in PRIVATE at the tax payers expense.yes there are some VICTIMS in the adult industry, but we have victims of DUI's too and we are not making everybody stop driving. Most escorts are victims of police and society not by their clients.If we were decriminalized then ALL ESCORTS could pay taxes, obtain health insurance and help pay for services for the women wanting out of the lifestyle.So what gives you the right to dictate who I can have sex with in my own home as an adult, especially if your not dictating everyone elses, only the escorts?Here some fun factsOut of all the drug addiction in the USA escorts make up only 5%Out of all the STD's in the USA escorts make up only 3%Yet 90% of us have been raped, arrested or abused, and have been discriminated against once we have criminal records,so we can't get jobs again.In some states it is legal for the cops to pay a women and have sex with her and then arrest her, they can even use REAL CRIMINALS as informants to have sex with the women and then arrest them.Victims of rape are asked about their sex history during rape trials, which gives the message that it is OK to rape women that do not dress or behave the way we think they should.

Mrs Robinson I give you a lot of credit for being intelligent enough to figure out that instead of getting up everyday and bettering yourself with education or getting a 9-5 job that pays little but provides you with pride and dignity, the real money is in laying on your back and being complacent in the decline of marriage and family.  Your parents must be SO proud and maybe when your little girl grows up, she can follow in her mommy's footsteps.

Yes working at Walmart for 8 bucks a hour is really going to bring me more pride and security in life, and we know even those with college degrees can't get jobs and those who can get  ajob, do not get paid a wage they can live on.The  decline of marriage and family is NOT THE ESCORTS FAULT, Many of my clients claim ESCORTS are what keep their marriage alive. Most men no longer want to get married.Wake up marriage doesn't mean much when you can get a divorce for NO REASON, and a man can leave his wife with 3 kids so she has to track him down for child support.Perhaps we should go back to when women BECAME SLAVES when they married because they were not allowed to work, vote, or go out in public alone and the couldn't OWN anything, all their assets became their husbands once they married.You talk as if millions of Americans are not JUST HOOKING up with strangers on a regular basis, and the only time we have a problem with it, is when a women is smart enough not to let a man wate her time and use her and demands to be PAID.Escorts do not sell sex, we sell our time, men do not buy sex, what they are buying is NOT TO BE OBLIGATED.

I applaud you Mrs. Robinson to come forward and stand up for yourself and speak up for your fellow escorts. Without women like you, what would men who are far too cowardly to man-up, be honest and and get out of an unfulfilling marriage do for sex?? There are so many gems in your rant ("to find a skank giving it away at the bar" or "but they don't care if their neighbor is regularly bringing home strange men and behaves like a SKANK in front of the neighbors" ) I almost thought for a second you were being funny on purpose. Comparing escorting with being a wife and mother was the icing on the cake of hilarity that was your post. Your statement that a prostitute would be arrested for calling 911 for a rape, assault, etc., during an encounter is misguided and misleading. However, I don't believe they'd care if an escort got ripped off on her "donations" (which I love that they use that because as you say, escorts are desperate women and should be considered a charity case), so you may want to think twice before calling under those particular circumstances. You speak of someone's CHARACTER. Perhaps you don't know what character means. Character has to do with integrity, honesty and courage. Character does not mean profitting off other's misery, lies, deciet and cowardess, while you, yourself, lie and conceal a behavior that you seem to be so self righteous about.  Congratulations to you Mrs. Robinson for being one of those skanks you ranted about.

You may believe you can DICATE to all the men in the country about whether they want to be married  because you feel that these men should be owning up to their failed relationships instead of burying their **** in another woman.You can talk all day long and you will NEVER MAKE ME ASHAMED of beig a escort or by sexuality. You do not seem to have problems with SWINGS, even married couples that regulary have sex with strangers, or anyone JUST HOOKING UP.I have the right to my own sexuality and you nor the government has THE RIGHT TO PLAY GOD.  I have more CHARACTER, MORALS, STANDRADS than many women.I believe all women have the right to CHOSE and I do agree with you that SERVICES FOR WOMEN WANTING TO EXIT THE INDUSTRY  NEED TO BE CREATED, but you can't FORCE your personal beliefs off on the rest of society. I much rather be a WHORE and get paid than to be a SLUT and just give it away, because I have more respect for myself and I have learned that MEN TREAT YOU HOW YOU ALLOW THEM TOO.

What makes you think ALL MEN WANT TO BE MARRIED, and what gives you or the GOVERNMENT the right to dicate YOUR BELIEFS ONTO US. What about the men that are sociably awkward or guys that are not attractive, I GUESS YOU THINK ITS OK THAT THEY NEVER HAVE SEX. Or men that do not want to be in a relationship, but still want to have sex. At least as a escort I am being HONEST, Escorts are arrested all the time when they call the police to report a crime against themselves, OMG just watch it in the media and don't forget the cops + politicans who keep getting caught with hookers, arrested for raping hookers and we have 10 dead escorts buried in long Island. What gives you the right to think ANY WOMEN deserves to be treated this way, OVER THEIR SEXUALITY, that is occuring in THEIR OWN HOMES. In VT they recently closed a fraterintiy because the guys made up a RAPE SURVEY, and asked "if you could who would you rape and why" All women are OUTRAGED over this, and I am just as OUTRAGED at your predijuice and lack of compassion for escorts, after all we are your sisters, mothers, aunts, and daughters, and there is millions of us currently working in the USA. Why do you + the governement get to dicate that we will continue spending 250 million a year to stalk middle aged people around OVER SEX.
