What’s Your Price?

It’s taken me a long time to grow my hair out even to my shoulders after a styling mishap a couple years ago forced me to cut it all off, but offer me, say, 100K to cut it short again and I’d do it in a heartbeat. Hell, I’d cut it for 10K. Five thousand I’m not so sure about, though. My point is, we’ve all got a price for pretty much everything, and for me it’s 10 (maybe five) thousand bucks for my hair. For a woman in Oklahoma, her asking price is a little more modest. For a few potato chips, she’ll give up her whole body. Lahoma Sue Smith, 35, pleaded no contest to trading sex with a Frito-Lay employee for a $30 box of chips. Officers found them both partially clothed, inside Smith’s car. The guy wasn’t charged, but Smith was fined $1,142. Dude, that’s a lot of chips. [My Fox Boston] Keep reading »

Would You Sell Your Body To Make Ends Meet?

If times were tough — I mean, really tough — would you sell your body for money? In her Salon column “Pinched,” Tracy Clark-Flory reports that more women are entering the sex industry due the recession, including Marie, a 30-year-old former white-collar professional with a degree, who now operates out of hotel room and has “been paid more times than she can count, or cares to count, for sex, blow jobs, hand jobs and sensual massage.”

We already knew that sex still sells during a recession — sex toy sales are up, lingerie sales are booming, and sex workers — from prostitutes to strippers — aren’t being as adversely effected by the economic downturn as other businesses. But otherwise professional women who never considered a career in sex work suddenly taking it all off to make ends meet? Is this really a trend? Keep reading »

This weekend’s New York Times Sunday Magazine had a lengthy feature on SeekingArrangements.com, an online dating site which matches affluent men (or at least men willing to shill out what money they have) with women who are willing to trade companionship and often sex in exchange for money, gifts, and other perks. Half of these sugar daddies are married, while the vast majority of the sugar babies are in their ’20s. The best news of all for these guys? Sugar babies outnumber sugar daddies 10 to 1. Brandon Wade, Seeking Arrangement’s 38-year-old founder and chief executive, says, “We stress that these relationships are mutually beneficial. We ask people to really think about what they want in a relationship and what they have to offer. That kind of upfront honesty is a good basis for any relationship.” Keep reading »

The World’s Tiniest Brothel

Leanne Eisen is a Toronto-based artist who creates dollhouse scenes that depict the human condition. One of her most intriguing photo-based series is “Play,” for which Eisen built miniature replicas of brothel interiors. While most dollhouses contain scenes of perfect domesticity, Eisen’s rooms allow viewers a downsized peek inside the mostly hidden world of prostitution. I asked the artist about her mini-sex work project; her response is after the jump. Keep reading »

From Strip Clubs To Hotel Beds: The Lay Of Sex Laws

You can take our dignity but not our porn! New York’s Governor Paterson is pitching new taxes to help the state’s $14 billion budget deficit. Among them: a $10 tax for strip club patrons and tax on Internet downloads for web porn. Similarly, Texas pols want to place a $5 “pole tax” which was struck down as unconstitutional by a state judge.
