Virginity for sale


Ok, so maybe this isn't the ideal way to put yourself through college. But this also isn't the ideal way to be a news reporter. Real reporters ask pertinent questions, like, "Why is this woman resorting to prostitution in order to pay her tuition?" or "Is this a trend we should be worrying about?" Or how about, "What does this say about the value we place on 'purity' in young women?"

But if, like these guys, objectivity doesn't interest you and you want to be a judgmental jerk, I hear there's an opening on Hannity and Colmes.

Thanks to Ilya for the tip.

...or, how just is it that she was able to make money in a way unavailable to a man in her situation?

Reminds me of this paper I once read: "Sexual Economics: Sex as Female Resource for Social Exchange in Heterosexual Interactions," http://www.csom.umn.edu/Assets/71503.pdf


It's pretty provocative (interesting a lot of the times), but probably nothing you haven't heard in small doses. I also have my criticisms and would welcome any discussion.
