Is It OK For An Elementary School Teacher To Have A Sordid Past?

How would you feel if you knew your young child’s art teacher used to be a prostitute? This is the question at the heart of a news story making waves this week in New York City. Melissa Petro, a “well-liked” elementary school art teacher in the Bronx for the past three years, was recently reassigned to administrative duty after the school system caught wind of her history as a prostitute. Petro was never arrested and has no criminal record. So, how did the school find out about her past? Oh, because she blogged about it for the Huffington Post a couple of weeks ago.

Girl Talk: My Husband Contacted A Prostitute And It Saved Our Marriage

Dear _________, Thank you for posting your prostitution ad on Craigslist. I’m not being sarcastic. Last year, I called you the “c” word when I asked you to stop writing my husband. We blocked your email address so your emails would stop.

I stalked your website. You were selling sex. I hated you and your youth. Your disregard for the norms I grew up with made me sick. I was taught that sex was special, and there you were, selling it. Worse, my husband took your bait. You pretended to be a Yale music student. You posed in your underwear and bra. You were “looking” for friends because you were new to town. In answering my husband, you asked if he could pick you up. The day he wrote you, he told me he loved me. Keep reading »

Next Up In Switzerland: Drive-In Sex Boxes

Switzerland is totally cutting edge when it comes to sex accouterments. A couple weeks ago, the country announced it would begin selling pregnancy tests in vending machines. Its latest sex-nological improvement will be the addition of drive-in sex boxes in Zurich’s red-light district. What exactly is a drive-in sex box, you ask? It’s like a parking spot surrounded by metal fences where Johns can park while being “serviced.” The idea is that it would give prostitutes more privacy to work in broad daylight and protect nearby residents from having to see anything lewd. It would be even cooler if they had movies playing in there, too. Just a suggestion. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Montana Fishburne Was Arrested For Prostitution

In a bizarre twist, it looks like Montana Fishburne filming a porno might have been her attempt to clean up her life. Turns out, the 19-year-old daughter of Laurence “Morpheus” Fishburne was picked up by police for prostitution last year. In March, she pleaded no contest to the charge of trespassing, a misdemeanor. In return for the plea, the court agreed to drop the more serious charges of solicitation and loitering in a public area for the purpose of prostitution. Montana was sentenced to 15 days in jail, which she got out of by doing community service, and two years of probation. Some interesting stipulations of her probation: she was ordered to not charge (or attempt to charge) money for sex; have sex in a public place or a place “exposed to public view”; hitchhike or otherwise engage drivers in conversation; and loiter in alleys or public streets “with the intent to solicit acts of prostitution.” We’re wondering if porn counts as “sex exposed to public view”?

Watch Jennifer Love Hewitt Play A Prostitute Mom In “The Client List” Trailer

Oh, look! It’s the trailer for Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s new Lifetime series for which you have all been waiting, “The Client List,” starring J-Love as a prostitute mom who does the “unthinkable.” It’s Christmas! A foreclosure looms! Cybill Shepherd shows up! What would you do? Go be a prostitute, right? Right. “It’s amazing what you’re capable of saying yes to,” Hewitt coos. Don’t. I. Know. It. Also: she’s married. And he has no idea. I hate it when that happens. Apparently, this was all inspired by a true story, but I am thinking they took some liberties. Then she gets busted and makes a bunch of sad faces. What, no guest spot by John Mayer as the pimp with a heart of gold? What a rip. [The Gloss] Keep reading »
