When Call Girls Go Mainstream

Wednesday, December 16, 2009
I've faced some criticism about this blog. Not about my writing, or even the more sexually-graphic blog posts. What irked one reader is the fact that I try to "pretend" that all escorts are college-educated young men and women who are simply out having a good time.

I ignore the realities, this reader said -- those being violence, trafficking, drug use, and the fact that many turn to prostitution as a last resort. Most of all, very few escorts are college-educated or even as bright as myself.

(Those are the reader's words, not mine. Criticism aside, he/she did refer to me as bright, which I thought was quite nice.)

So, in the interest of maintaining balance, I would like to introduce all readers to a woman who embodies the downsides of the industry. No, not a sex-trafficking victim from Eastern Europe, one who has sex with men to support a drug habit. Rather, someone who's just pretty stupid and not all that interested in listening to.

Without further ado, Ashley Dupré

It's not that I don't feel bad for the girl. Having sex with a man is ugly as Elliot Spitzer is hard enough, but to have the media single her out as his provider is even worse. Seems Elliot enjoyed a bit of the Girlfriend Experience (GFE), meaning Ashley actually had to spend time with him beyond sex.

Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.

But instead of going into hiding and letting the public forget about her,
Dupré has decided to grace us with her presence each and every week, via an advice column in the New York Post. And let me be the first to say that I find both her personality and her writing unimpressive.

So, do I have the right to cringe when I see what many consider to be a bimbo representing the business of escorting? Maybe, maybe not. I realize that having sex for money is in itself an act of desperation for many. However, for some reason
Dupré just gets on my damn nerves.

Sure, she's beautiful. Yes, she and I essentially do the same thing for a living. And yes, I'm writing about my life in escorting, while she poured her heart out to Diane Sawyer and the ladies on The View. I don't remember who her attorney was, but something tells me Gloria Allred is somehow involved.

I suppose what irritates me most about this situation is that
Dupré just isn't that articulate. More than anything, perhaps Dupré confirms what many assume about escorts to be true: That we're young, naive, and in no way ready to handle the consequences of our actions.

Time will tell whether Dupré is here to stay or not. All I can say is this: There are many other girls just like her. Finding an escort who's as good at conversation as he/she is at sex is the real challenge.
