Democrat or Republican

Sunday, July 5, 2009
Over the holiday weekend, I was trying to come up with new, interesting topics for blog posts. It wasn't until I arrived at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami for the fireworks display that I thought of a post that many would be interested to read.

Are most of my clients Democrats or Republicans?

Truth be told, I don't know. Politics is something an escort should never, ever bring up in discussion. It doesn't take much for people to get caught up in a heated debate, and should either party offend the other, the appointment might be scrapped all together. It would be nothing for me, a liberal Democrat, to anger a female member of the GOP, and loss around $200 in pocket money, not to mention my agent's commission.

That being said, the GOP has had a real problem relating to women as of late. While I don't have any evidence to back up my thesis, I believe that most of my clients' husbands are conservative, but my clients themselves are much more moderate. This is true across the spectrum, really, as women are noted for being more liberal than men.

Rebecca has told me that she suspects a lot of her clients identify themselves as conservatives. Subsequently, most identify with the GOP, which is highly ironic. Think about it -- these "family values" folks deny gays the right to marry, oppose a woman's right to choose, yet see no problem in paying a whore to suck their cock if not outright fuck them.

Such is the mystery of the male psyche. I'd be willing to bet the contents of my checking account that most right-wing males have hired escorts in the past. Hell, David Archuleta's father (David being a young contestant on American Idol) was supposedly a straight-laced Mormon, only to be caught getting his rocks off at a massage parlor. FYI, massage parlors are gross -- the bottom of the barrel when it comes to sex-workers.

Perhaps conservatives -- feeling the need to project the image of a happy family -- marry too young to women they don't truly love. Then again, we've all see the closet homosexual types. Adam has stories about being cruised by closeted men, multiple times, in fact. Even more disturbing is that it seemed to happen most when he was barely legal.

Part of me feels bad for them (especially after Sarah Palin entered the political scene and pretty much made a mockery out of the party), but not too bad. These people need to get their heads out of their asses and realize that no one is infallible, and that claiming to be so just makes the fall from the top even more devastating.

Oh, and instead of targeting prostitutes in sting operations, how about going after their pimps instead? And for people like me and Rebecca, individuals who are working in this industry by choice and are neither beaten or coerced into doings things they don't want to do...

Live and let live. Better yet, legalize the industry and let us earn a living in peace like everyone else. It's not like politicians aren't familiar with escorts already. Judging from the events in the last year and a half, we've been chummy for quite some time.
