Tracy Quan on Spitzer

Tracy Quan discusses Spizter’s use of an escort service in the NY Times. Though she’s not at all fond of the Internet, agencies are much riskier than an indie — Internet or not.

  1. Hi Amanda – Thank you for posting my NYT piece. Hey, I hope I do not give the impression of internetphobism. (Is that a word…?) I pretty much LIVE online and have nothing but warm feelings for the internet!! I just think it’s crazy for a politician to use the net to find ladies. It’s better suited to those guys who have nothing much to lose… It’s been crazy. Since Monday, there has been a feeding frenzy in the media. I’m going to sleep now…

  2. This situation is the very reason I’ve turned guys like him down for years! I am in it for the long haul.

  3. I’ve gotten the impression you’re not fond of the Internt for sex work. Not the Internet in general. I assumed the connection was clear since I was writing about sex work. Guess not.

  4. Mmmm. Okay. I don’t know if that is a fair description of my take on internet sex work. I think the net is here to stay and it’s a very interesting medium for meeting clients. It’s dangerous but it’s also convenient. I did a lot of dangerous, convenient things at one time, and they were probably more dangerous than the internet.

    I do write about how the internet scares the willies out of some call girls and clients. But that is for historical accuracy, because I want to document the transition and talk about how people felt at the dawn of the 21st. And it’s in the context of fiction. Anyway, I am totally flattered if anyone cares what I think about the internet. I better shut up now. A 2-graf comment is almost obscene!
