what percentage of men do you think sees prostitutes?

are you within that percentage?
pdqsailor1 · 61-69, M
Lets see now.. I am in my mid sixties.. I have been sexually intimate with exactly two women in my life, the first was a young Woman who was more experienced than I was and it was she who relieved me of my virginity - but that relationship did not continue.. The second Woman, I married and 34 years later I am still monogamously very married to her.. She is all I ever wanted and gives me as much or more than I can possibly handle..
pdqsailor1 · 61-69, M
@pdqsailor1 or in other words, I have never been with a prostitute..
foldedunfolding · 36-40, FVIP
@pdqsailor1 im happy for your lovely dream life, thanks to your morality, and i am sincere saying that!!!
pdqsailor1 · 61-69, M
@foldedunfolding Ah morality well there is a reason they are not called the ten "suggestions"... These lines are not to be crossed... over the course of my life I have observed people who have disregarded the "rules" and invariably it does not work out to anyone's advantage when this occurs...Those that do follow the rules avoid trouble... I LOVE my Wife...and I make certain she enjoys herself as my priority and I am very well rewarded in doing so...

I think the stat is like 15% or something have seen them at one point in their life but much much much less than that within the past year. So is it 'once ever' or is it 'regularly' right.

Anyways neither for me. All the respect for sex workers but all sorts of reasons I wouldn't.
@CountScrofula that's more than I expected, even counting the once and never again people. But I understand the respect and never for me part.
I have not and I don’t think I ever will. If I cannot find a lady enthusiastic about me that way. Than I shouldn’t do it at all.
I Realize that sex work is a to me, legitimate consensual enterprise.

I also realize that much of it is coerced and enforced

I also recognize that many men have not had the opportunity yet I have the natural drive, and in some ancient cultures, handling that was done by a religious order. And then women both really want to have sex! It is much harder for a man to achieve this.

There’s a need being filled by a commercial response

I just know I wouldn’t like it. If that is the incentive to lie next to me, I feel that it’s demeaning not to the worker, but to me. Not being worthy of such attention naturally
Google says 14% of Americans have paid for sex. I was thinking about 1 out of 10 so it’s higher than I thought. I wonder how this varies by country…🤔
JimboSaturn · 51-55, M
@Haniazed Paid for it once in their life is different than frequent users. too.
Probably not all that much in the general population, but at least half of the millionaires.
WillaKissing · 56-60
You know I never gave that a thought myself. I see it as terrible. I am searching for words but to say it best I pity the prostitute that is forced into that profession by addictions or for a need to survive, or heaven forbid human trafficking. If a woman chooses upon her free will to be a prostitute, I still think it is a sad choice.
foldedunfolding · 36-40, FVIP
@WillaKissing i do too 😪 i don't mean it as a sit-over-them-in-judgement thing....i mean it as a damn i would hate that for me, so i wonder how it is for them type thing

A friend of mine from high school worked as a prostitute for about 10 years. And I got to know one woman out of quite a few who was a regular bringing guys back when I worked in a hotel. It always sounded to me like around a third of those that see a prostitute do it just once. The rest are regulars for a period of time.
Degbeme · 70-79, M
*looks down at hands* Not a word out of you two. 😒
SemiAnonymous · 61-69, M
Does a handjob at a Asian massage shop count? I was a horny 18 year old in the Navy and heard from a friend about this place near the airport.

Other than that, I've never paid anyone for sex. Although I am married, so I guess indirectly I've paid. 🤣
Bladey · 56-60, M
In general men are quite particular where they dip their sticks. Yes, there are those who doesn't care but they are those who probably have some non-treatable STD.
DrWatson · 70-79, M
A long time ago, I was in that percentage.

I stopped about a year before getting married. (And I have been married for over 39 years.)
foldedunfolding · 36-40, FVIP
@DrWatson does your wife know?
DrWatson · 70-79, M
@foldedunfolding Yes she does. She knows all about my past.
deadgerbil · 22-25, M
Maybe like 5%? It's illegal and many people aren't going to risk it

If it were legal, it would actually be a sizeable %
IlovePeaches · 22-25, F
more then you might think... when horny mode takes over that money is quickly spent
pdqsailor1 · 61-69, M
@IlovePeaches men who think with their penises instead of their brains.. and there are a great many of those out there..
Morvoren · F
Prostitution is illegal here. So there’s bound to be a percentage but it’s a fraction of a percent.
Iwantyourhotwife · 22-25
It is probably not high. Maybe western guys but this isn't a huge issue elsewhere generally

@OldMan70 I now realise so anonymous
Straylight · F
I can’t imagine it’s a big percentage of the population. 🤔
wonkywinky · 51-55, M
I guess its quite high.Its something a guy can do in 30 minutes.I once visited one before going to a football game in the hour before meeting up.
Perhaps 50% of men you see will have done this at least once in their lives.
If you asked 100 men 99% of them would say never,but that must be untrue.
foldedunfolding · 36-40, FVIP
@wonkywinky i appreciate your candor, and the last thing i would want to do is punish you publicly for it. but i do wonder at the casualness of how you said you saw a prostitute before a football game. was there such an urgency for penetrative sex, that you had to meet up with a stranger and treat her as a receptacle? again..sorry if my word choice is very blunt here....i guess i just cant wrap my mind around why a hand cant be wrapped around a cock to get past the horniness....
wonkywinky · 51-55, M
@foldedunfolding Its ok to be judgemental,i dont mind.It was a phase in my life where i had been out of a relationship for a long time,and men do have needs so...Not proud of it,but i just wanted to do something dirrrtyy kind of,amongst the normality.
Sojournersoul · 100+, M
Never been to one. Have no idea on percentage.
Ontheroad · M
Once, as a young soldier in a land far, far away, I went out with some of the "seasoned" soldiers from my barracks - we had a few too many drinks, and they introduced me to a woman who, shall we say, had her way with me 😉.

It wasn't a particularly enjoyable experience, and it was the last and only time.
foldedunfolding · 36-40, FVIP
@Ontheroad did you pay for it tho?
exexec · 61-69, C
I have not, and I think the percentage is low.
DragonFruit · 61-69, M
I have no idea....and no, I'm not.
BackyardShaman · 61-69, M
I don’t know, I’m not in that group but a large percentage of males know that a prostitute can be a lot of trouble and will pass on diseases to you and also may see you as a target for robbery, blackmail, and other things.
qwe05 · 70-79, M
[b][i][c=003BB2][/c][/i][/b]I'll admit that I have but not lately.I believe that a high percentage have but as far as seeing them in later life, a very small percent. I wouldn't even attempt to guess what the percentage is.
foldedunfolding · 36-40, FVIP
@qwe05 the 2 men who have admitted to seeing them, on this thread, both put the percentage at far higher than the rest of the thread contributors..interesting thought 🤔
JacksonBlue · 31-35, M
Based on my discussions and trips to countries with legalised prostitutes less than 5% and i'm not in that percentage. Im too cheap 🤣
foldedunfolding · 36-40, FVIP
@JacksonBlue is that the only reason, that you dont have the money? also..i presume that the fact it is legal makes men [i]less[/i] likely to see them..the taboo is somewhat removed. if you have ever read Freakonomics, they make a case for its order to do away with it more expeditiously
JacksonBlue · 31-35, M
@foldedunfolding I have the money. Its just not for me. The whole thing just feels awkward to me. I feel weird enough in strip clubs without anything extra lmao

Absolutely makes sense. Squeeze the supply and demand goes up. Flood the market and no one really cares about it anymore. Kind of happened with the Prime drink earlier this year.
I saw one last night, she was with a guy.. apparently he was charged 800 and she refused to do the sex with him. When he tried to get the monies back she punched him in the face and ran off to the popo
How do you define a prostitute though?

A woman who goes out on a date. The guy buys her a meal, and she never sees him again.

A lonely guy has given a woman money, and got very little in return.
DunningKruger · 61-69, M
I imagine it's both higher and lower than we'd expect.

I have never procured the services of a prostitute, but I've known a few.
1490wayb · 56-60, M
a lot of massage parlors around...have no idea what happens too frugal to find out haha
johnsreenevasan · 31-35
almost every kid who is curious about sex. I know I was
pdqsailor1 · 61-69, M
@johnsreenevasan Your first sex was with a professional? Hmm that's interesting..
Sevendays · M
A small number and, nope, never paid for any.
JimboSaturn · 51-55, M
Just a guess but maybe 5%, but it could be more.
deadteddy · 26-30, F
A very small percentage imo.
DMmeyourtits · 26-30, M
Defines "sees"
foldedunfolding · 36-40, FVIP
@DMmeyourtits consorted with..been pleasured by..oral or corporal manipulation of any kind
DMmeyourtits · 26-30, M
Milkshake · F

Renaci · 36-40
