A startling 40% of high-end sexual transactions do not involve sexual service. Instead, it's talking and cuddling—what's known as "emotional satisfaction" or "the gray zone." I hate to seem judgmental about other people's sex lives, but I do find this situation kind of sad for the couples. These men must feel rather isolated, depressed even, by not feeling that they can go to their loved ones for sympathy and empathy. Paying for sex is paying for sex. But even therapists don't provide the same kind of emotional support that someone who loves you does.
