I met up with an old friend from school last night, someone I see fairly infrequently. Anyway, he mentioned that he regularly uses prostitutes, which surprised me: he's a pretty good-looking guy in his late 20s, in good shape, easy to talk to. I asked him why - he said for him, at the moment, it's just less hassle and cheaper than trying to have a long-term relationship (which begs the question about casual sex with acquaintances, but still), and that the sex is very good (him knowing, I guess, where to go for good service!). So I wonder: how many guys here have visited/do visit prostitutes? If so, do you go to a brothel? An escort working alone? Street girls? I'm not condemning, and although I never have that is not to say I never would, so I'm just asking.
