The question is `are all women prostitutes?
& please give this some thought before you respond...rather then acting on emotional or social initial beliefs.
Nor is this intended as any disrespect to women or men for that matter, rather a social/personal observation.
Do women exchange sex either directly or indirectly for profit..this profit could be material, emotional or even physical gain.
Is it a fact that the female of the species..any species..has this strength/gift/advantage..that enables her to survive using sex as a barter, either consciously or unconsciously?
IMO they/we have..but have been either unable or niave enough to think it does not exist, unless you have had the insight to be honest with yourself.
This has little to do with love..if anything, this is about a deep inborn trigger of survival
I do not intend for my post to offend women, but know it may.
You cannot pose such questions & have such discussions in life, without offending someone.
& what is it `too be offended`? ..more likely a prod at difficult personal issues more than anything!
I did not write `are all humans prostitutes?` because the prejudice against prostitutes is mainly aimed at women!
& funnily enough..by women!
Even when men prostitute themselves..the majority you will see have donned the female aspect of themselves & are submissive.
Rarely, rarely do you see/meet a guy who is the stud & a prostitute.
You ask a guy to go out there & make money from being a stud for women..& you will meet a poor guy, because not much if any business will come his way, despite how hard he tries or fantasies!
Jung did have a prostitute as part of the inner facets & she is a female..this is not sexist, just a fact! Jung amongst others, were of the ilk of psychologists who used the prostitute as one of the archetypes that are facets of ourselves..this archetype applies to guys as much as it does to women..`she` is always placed on the feminine aspect. `She` also is one who holds a lot of personal sexual wisedom about ourselves
I used this question to better get people to recognise that the women that you see around the world prostituting themselves either on the street..or in the other echelons of the profession, are not `so` far removed from every other woman about..despite many who think they are above such practises...they are in fact denying a sistership, a part of themselves. It is in this perception that we can create social/sexual & political `abuse` of sexworkers..which in turn, gives ideas & opportunities to those who are sexually & violently dysfunctional.
Society/family `can` therefore create the monsters that maim, injure or kill prostitutes & they create them by `attitude`.
I have been a professional prostitute for many, many years of my life...now retired from `financially shared prostitution`...but have never retired from `being` a prostitute. In fact I am proud to be one of the few who truly are honest about the part prostitution has played in my life. To deny that would be to deny a fundemental part of myself...a part that gave me so much wisedom about my own truths.
I have carried this knowledge though on in my life & do as much as I can to educate people into their own sexual/political/religious/social dysfunctions & attitudes towards the sex industry
Many prostitutes have low self esteem because society makes that so..they always feel segregated from family & society. Having therefore to limit their communications with the aforementioned in a way that others don`t. This sometimes can make them prey to those who take full advantage of their isolation & emotions.
Many people think that the exchange is the birthing, household/child-rearing that women can offer. Though as many women do not want to birth or cannot birth for varioyus reasons..many women do not do the housework either or share it with their partners. If therefore these are the rewards given back for allowing sexual actions, then these women are at a loss so to speak!
It is mainly women who are at the front line of anti-pros crusading..women I have found are the most verment of attackers against other women who have chosen pros as their trade.
That is the reason I have used this form of question..to help others understand that they are not so far removed or `above` those who use sex as a means of barter & say so in an honest way. Its society & family that segregate these women & make them feel isolated from other members of society.
This in turn does not help all to understand or accept the value of each other. In fact imo it cause some people to get it terribly wrong & can create the monsters that hate prostitutes & cause a great deal of the violence/abuse & murder we see against all women in societies around the world.
It creates sociel/political/sexual/religious dsyfunctions against sexworkers & not just sexworkers that are finiancially dependant on their trade but those women who just happened to be passing by!
