Charlie Sheen: Why I Love Prostitutes

shocking moments 2011

Charlie Sheen continues his “I’m Not Crazy Anymore, Really” Tour in Playboy, telling the magazine his weird behavior was caused by a “psychotic break” after years in the spotlight and many failed relationships. “I finally just said the things I had always been thinking.” But when he infamously said he was “winning,” the truth was far from it: “I was in total denial,” he says. “I felt I was winning by finally being able to speak my mind. I felt that was some sort of victory.” Read more…

Well, this is sad/infuriating: Two 15-year-old girls in Ottawa, Canada, have been charged with human trafficking after they forced several other underage girls into prostitution. The victims were between the ages of 13 and 17, and were allegedly driven to various locations by the two girls and their 17-year-old accomplice. Aside from the young age of the girls, Ottawa police say they’re shocked that the offenses occurred in a quiet, middle class neighborhood.

According to affadavits, there were no men involved in the trafficking ring. “We don’t know about any further incidents,” said Staff Sgt. John McGetrick.. “But if there are, we want women out there to know that they can some see us and we’ll work with them and help them out. We’d love to help them.”

The girls face charges of human trafficking, procuring, forcible confinement, assault, sexual assault, robbery, abduction and uttering threats. [National Post]

Sunday night’s episode of “Mad Men” was a climactic one, and possibly the best episode of the season. Peggy, fed up with being taken for granted by Don, landed a new job at a rival firm and resigned by Sterling Cooper Draper Price. Meanwhile, SCDP’s deal with Jaguar seemingly hinges on Joan sleeping with an exec from the car manufacturer. That Pete dared to bring this proposal to Joan was loathsome. The other partners’ (save Don’s) begrudging support of pimping out one of their most loyal and hardworking employees was disgusting. Even Don’s plea to Joan that sleeping with the exec “wouldn’t be worth it” (which came, unbeknownst to him, just a little too late) was not without room for criticism — his primary motivation was likely his ego’s desire to land the deal on his own merit. 

But what of Joan’s decision to sleep with the Jaguar exec in exchange for partnership in SCDP (with a five percent stake)? We got a glimpse at Joan’s current home life as a single mom (her husband, Greg, having filed for divorce last episode), living with her judgmental mother, and it was clear that it’s not an easy, comfortable one. Was Joan’s decision to use her sexuality in the most blatant of ways to get ahead (exchanging sex for money) ultimately a feminist decision? Or was the fact that she was clearly conflicted — and certainly not “enjoying it” — a sign that she was clearly disempowered, whether she came out better financially or not? Jessica and I both had really strong opinions on the subject, so we decided to talk it out over IM. Read our convo after the jump and then share your views in the comments! Keep reading »

Well, goddamn, some names definitely seem to lead you down certain life paths, don’t they? Having a name like Fokken might have had a tad bit of influence in convincing these two feisty broads — twin sister prostitutes — into getting into the biz. Identical twin sisters Louise and Martine Fokken have worked Amsterdam’s Red Light District for more than 50 years, first under the control of pimps and then as independent contractors, running their own brothel. They also helped set up the first independent union for prostitutes, so they’re kind of amazing, no? We can’t wait to see the full-length doc about their lives, but we’ll settle for this trailer clip for now. [Meet The Fokkens]

Catherine Scalia (aka Hot Dog Hooker), is back on the streets and offering “a wiggle with your wiener.” Wonderful slogan, by the way. I hope I have the opportunity to work that into conversation today. Even though she pleaded guilty to misdemeanor prostitution after giving an undercover cop a side of lap dance with his hot dog last week, she is adamant that she isn’t a hooker. Hooker’s suck and f**k, strippers wiggle. She’s a stripper. So please, refer to her as “Hot Dog Stripper” when you order your wiener/wiggle combo. Or we could call her Hot Dog Mom since she has four teenage sons. I really want Hot Dog Stripper and Tanning Mom to do a reality show together. I’d love to watch those two conversate. [Bossip]

Sex For Cheeseburgers: Christine Baker Offered Favors For Two Doubles, Cops Say

An undercover officer invited Baker into his car on Friday and started talking about sex. Baker allegedly said that her fee was two McDoubles — the dollar-menu version of a double cheeseburger — costing a grand total of $2.75. Read more …

The following piece was originally published on The Fix.

Since I was 19, I’ve worked on and off as a prostitute in New York City.  I learned a lot about men during my decade of escorting, from seeing the insides of their apartments and uncensored sexual requests, but it wasn’t until I quit drinking and using drugs three years ago that I began to notice that many of my clients shared a surprising characteristic: They were sober.

As soon as I was looking for the signs, it became obvious that I was seeing a disproportionate amount of recovering addicts. Eventually, I would start bringing up drinking just to test my own hypothesis. Over and over again, I would find out that the guys who were paying me to drool all over their junk had been sober for a decade or two.  

And most of them were married, too, of course. Keep reading »

Cheryl Cohen Greene has devoted the last 40 years of her life to helping others overcome sexual discomfort and dysfunction through her work as a sex surrogate. She’s seen nearly a thousand clients in that time — some of whom she merely touches and shares affection with, others with whom she actually has intercourse  – and believes that her work has the power to change lives. Her career also had an impact on her own sex life; she met her husband Bob in 1979 when he came to her as a client, struggling with performance anxiety. Keep reading »
