I am not talking about the professional high-class escorts working in places like Geneva for escort agencies such as Elegant Escorts in Geneva. Those women have made the same choice that women have made since the beginning of time; exchanging erotic capital for financial capital. And good luck to them. Being a Geneva escort is a conscious decision that brings benefit to both parties involved. And does no harm to anyone.
Where it gets more morally ambiguous is among the women who would blanch if anyone accused them of being a sex worker, but will happily spend the night with a man in return for a meal at a good restaurant and expensive tickets to a nightclub. Or the women who continue to have sex with a man that they feel nothing for, or even dislike, because he buys them great handbags and shoes. Or those “celebrities” who have their phones “hacked” and their sex tapes released to a boring world. One tip; upload it to the cloud in an anonymous account and give it a unique password. End of the problem!
In today’s world would Marilyn Monroe have gone down those routes? I am sure she would. But it would have been a clear-headed and conscious choice and she would only have done so to deliberately further her career. Not just so she did not have to get a real job. Being Marilyn was a real job.
