It isn’t.

Why? suppression of women
How much? that depends entirely on the service being provided

If an adult woman wants to sell an hour of her time to a willing-to-pay male, what’s the big deal? Government doesn’t get a cut, that’s why.

It is illegal in most of the US.

What would I charge? We live in a market economy. So I would see what my competitors are charging for their services, and be roughly in the same ballpark, depending on quality.

Look at it this way. $50 will get you a better blowjob in Terre Haute than in New York City.

It’s our Puritan religious base. I don’t think it should be illegal either. It needs to have oversight and taxation. it would be safer for the girls.

@Dutchess_III I’m surprised you went that route.

I have $50…

Enough for it to be painful if I didn’t want to do my job.

@elbanditoroso What makes it better?

elbanditoroso's avatar

@chyna my guess is that your $50 will buy you more time and higher quality than in a mass market like NYC.

As for how to define ‘better’ – that’s subjective.

It’s not known as the oldest profession for nothing.
Half an hour of my time is going to cost an arm & a leg…quality produce!

On fourth St inReno, you can get a snaggletooth bj for ten bucks.
If you want blown by a woman with all her teeth, more like that fifty. Take that times ten for a woman with no teeth.

Why should it be legalized? Threat of incarceration gets lots of free info for cops.

No thanks @Coolhandluke. I made a promise to my husband when we got married that I don’t do that with any body but him.

My going rate is $100.

Brandt can’t watch, or he has to pay $10.

Patty_Melt's avatar

Shoot! I have only $99 in cash.

Because for whatever fucking reason the government feels that they have the right to control everybody’s bodies. As long as they ALL consent, are getting tested regularly, and are practicing other safety techniques: WHO CARES???????

Also ya’ll are cheap I’m a solid $200

Yes, but you are young and youth is always in demand. I, on the other hand, have to settle on the middle-aged rate in order to stay competitive in the market.

elbanditoroso's avatar

@SergeantQueen you’re probably worth twice that!

It’s only illegal if you get caught.
