An Italian model and Big Brother Italy star has decided to check out this whole prostitution thing by announcing the sale of her virginity. This follows the trend of Natalie Dylan auctioning her chastity. Let's hope that this doesn't spiral out of control. Someone warn Disney that this stuff happens.
Showtime's "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" is the fictional story of Belle, a high-class prostitute. The series, which ended on Monday (although if you have Showtime you can still get it from OnDemand), received mixed reviews. According to the New York Times, "the series disarms viewers with the flattering pretense that they are watching a witty social satire and not merely a soft-core romp." But over at Salon, Ondine Galsworth calls the show "well-crafted and witty." She goes on to say that, "though the show is sexy -- with plenty of unblinking bedroom romps -- it is also funny and perhaps even, dare we say it, informative, with juicy tidbits about a taboo and complicated life."
Greek police arrested nine women and twelve men on the Greek island of Zakynthos after participating in an oral sex competition. What such a competition entails, we're not sure. But we're wondering if it's all the rage on Greek party islands (the beaches! the sun! the hot Greek men!) or if this is a one-off.
Prostitution's been big news this year. Some very public dalliances invited the very private profession to be probed and dissected from every angle: that of the sex worker, the "john," the families, the spouse or girlfriend unaware. So, to watch "Belle" the leading lady (actually, just call her a whore, for she prefers not to mince words) in Showtime's new series "Secret Diary of a Call Girl," walk us through her fantastical, clandestine and well-oiled routine with a smile was unexpected.
The guys over at Law & Order have ripped another case right from the headlines. They've decided to weigh in on New York politics and the Eliot Spitzer prostitution scandal. Well, the writer's strike seemed to have paid off. They might not have had time for that one if the season had gone as planned. Sliver linings.
We couldn't help but be drawn to sexwork101.com, a new web site devoted to educating regular people like us on the sex industry. sexwork101.com and boundnotgagged.com, a blog for sex workers, fill in the gaps between what we know and what the media offers us. We found the glossary particularly helpful, as these Spitzer-scandal times call for the correct verbiage. No need to offend anyone!
It looks like a pimp has told FoxNews that he once sent the Eliot Spitzer hooker 'Kristen' AKA Ashley Alexander Dupre to visit Charlie Sheen... as a cheerleader. He also alleges that the girls would do cheers for Charlie in their costumes. What if this all was true? Super.
Paying for sex is something that men have only done since forever. But it feels like people are getting caught more now than ever, particularly with details of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer's personal life coming to light. Well, it's hard out there for a pimp. And a ho. And a john or so it appears.
Have you ever thought that it might just be easier to drop out of your masters program and start sleeping with older men for money? If you have, you're not alone. An intrepid writer decided to go into the mile-a-minute world of online sugar daddies. It turns out that they're not all Richard Gere (in a bad way). So, an attractive woman has a choice; work hard and make peanuts or have some slob push on and off of you for $100,000 a year.
A woman who sold her body to six men as part of an online sex auction is somewhat regretting that decision. It turns out either someone slipped one past the goalie or the goalie was taking a breather and she wound up pregnant. This is not going to be a pleasant story to explain to that kid. At least she has successfully sued the auction house to get information about who the father might be.
