Prostitute paid in crisps - July 5th 2009, 04:04 PM

Okay, well this seems a bit strange to me! What do you guys think? This prostitute had sex with a man in his car for some crisps all because he had no money!

Quote:
A prostitute in Oklahoma was so desperate for business that she was caught having sex with a man in exchange for a box of crisps.
Police followed Lahoma Smith's vehicle and discovered her and a man engaged in sexual activity inside.
She told officers that the man asked for her sex but did not have any cash so they struck a deal by which he gave her the crisps

Wow, she must be desperate to have sex for a box of crisps but then again, I could say the same for the guy. It does seem really strange though but I guess it's better then nothing

That doesn't really make a whole lot of sense... she was desperate for business... yet she did it for a packet of crisps? How did that make her any richer?

Strange world...

Also the current economy is going to cause prositution to rise. If they can find any customers.

More like how many women are so desperate that they don't see any other way to survive.

Prostitute Traded Sex for … Frito-Lay Chips! - Neatorama

Er, I just found this article, and the thing that I'm confused about...$30 of fritos? Aren't they like, $3 a bag? That's lots of fritos. Who drives around with huge cases of chips?

Food is food, if you are hungry enough...

But the thing that confuses me, is how the police realised it was prostitution. I mean come on, if the guy had no cash, and there was just a box of chips in the car, unless the police were told, how would they be able to link it together?

I grew up with these women. They were my moms best friends and clients. I grew up in the drug/prostitution world. They don't care. They don't appreciate their bodies. Yes, there are some who find themselves in a tight spot, but there are several other ways to make money. Most of these women are fully capable of getting fast food jobs and working fourty hours a week. In the U.S. there are jobs. It's just America is too lazy to do something they don't want to do. There are signs everywhere hiring. There is no need to go get physical with strangers for money.

Edit: If you're offended because you link prostitution to being a dominatrix, I think those things are fully different to one another.

Anecdotal evidence is sometimes useful, but it's very subjective, and you'll get people on both sides. You grew up with these women - I was one of these women. I have sold myself before, but it was never the result of me not appreciating my body; my part-time job wasn't cutting it. You can't take your experience with prostitutes and generalize it to every woman who does the same as they do. I don't doubt a lot of them lack appreciation of their bodies or their lives, but some of us do respect ourselves.

Was I capable of getting a real job? Yes, but sometimes you need money fast, and you don't have time to wait for interviews, hiring, and a paycheque that usually comes about 2 weeks after you're hired. It's never been a first choice, but it has occasionally been a last resort.

I have no idea where the dominatrix thing came from...if you're a pro-domme, yeah, that could be considered prostitution, as you're being paid to perform sexual acts on someone, but of course I wouldn't link normal BDSM relationships with prostitution.

Wow... I always thought, well over here in sunny England we're told as a majority its because they want jobs... The... not so rich ones, but then I guess thats wrong, as both the articles and posters have proved... A programme I watched seemed to assume as we got rid of drugs prostitution would disappear almost completely because of it :S



How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?

I thought you were into being a dominatrix. I read somewhere about that. I thought you had linked being a dominatrix to being a prostitute, therefore you'd be offended. Sorry about that.

Your point is that one I was trying to uphold. I understand that there are women, like yourself, that have needed money fast and have a last resort of prostitution. You're right. My point was that the majority of the women where I was raised were capable of working, and chose to not work and sleep with men for money to buy their drugs and sometimes feed their children if they were good mothers. I've seen the look in the eyes of some of these women. They don't care. They like having unprotected sex with strangers. That's how they make money and keep their druggy boyfriends whose teeth are falling out of their heads from meth. Some of these women can get help, but refuse, because they have serious issues, some I will and choose not to understand. Then again, there are the women I've seen that don't want to do it, and do it out of desperation, or because they seek that love that they've never had. For acceptance.

If you had a job and It wasn't cutting it, yeah. I don't know your life and I try not to pass judgment on people. I'm sorry If I offended you, I just wanted to offer my knowledge of the subject.
