No Piece of A$$…

There is an argument that often comes up on forums to which a variety of escorts contribute (review boards, community forums, etc.). The argument can come from escorts themselves or from clients. It is exactly as the title of this post reads: “No piece of ass is worth x.”

I often wonder why people have such a hard time believing that somebody can charge what we high-end escorts charge for our time and companionship. The truth is, people pay us. I don’t garner as much as some ladies do in this profession, but I do well for myself.

Having become somewhat jaded in this endeavor, I expect to see this argument from clients who can’t afford me. I also expect to see it from escorts who don’t believe we actually get what we charge. But it is interesting to see this argument from so-called feminists.

No- according to these people, our ability to garner the income we do is attributed to pimps. Of course we couldn’t be smart enough to charge x amount- only a pimp could get that for us. After all, we’re just whores, right? Perhaps. But this reasoning rests on the premise that pimps are smarter than we are.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, ladies. 😉
