Hooker Rights

Being a bachelor, I do from time to time browse through some dating sites. This evening I came across an ad that I could only laugh at. In short, it was a woman offering her services as... for lack of a better word, a whore.

Her ad went through the typical shpeel about who she was and what she was offering and ended with:

Money exchanged in legal adult personal services for modeling is simply for time and companionship. Anything else that may or may not occur is a matter of personal choice and personal preferences between two or more consenting adults of legal age and is not contracted for, nor is it requested to be contracted for in any manner. This is not an offer of prostitution. Fees charged are for time spent only. I do reserve the right to decline appointments as I deem necessary.

By contacting me (either through phone or email) you agree to these terms and hereby agree that you are not part of any law enforcement agency using this advertisement for entrapment or for arrest. This is a contract you agree to my contacting me.

I have legal representation and know my rights fully.

Interestingly enough, a google search indicates that some other... ladies use similar legalese.

For a very brief moment, I am forced to wonder how much weight statements like the above would have in court. My guess, none at all. This seems not unlike a defense that a cop bought from a drug dealer which could be argued is illegal entrapment and any evidence gathered because of it is inadmissible... but in the real world, judges tend to laugh at such a defense, Or the myth that an undercover police officer has to identify themselves if you ask.

Police often get to do things that civilians cannot when collecting evidence of a crime or pursuing a suspect. Some are clearly legal, others are done while acting on the authority of the state.

Maybe it's time for her to get a different lawyer, as her current one does not seem to be a very good choice and may not be able to defend her to her liking should she go to court for such solicitations (or acts).

One other tidbit I noticed about this ad was the persons number, beginning with a *82. It seems that prefixing a phone call with *82 unblocks a blocked number for the proceeding call. She must have *77 enabled (anonymous call rejection).

I don’t think I’ll be going back to the site where I found this.

One last thing, out of boredom I notified the NYPD (she lives in New York City) about this solicitation. I doubt anything will happen with it, nor will I hear back. But in either case it is important to keep the police informed about crimes going on in case they have available time to deal with the little ones like this.

  • youre a loser why dont you just worry about your own life that woman or what she chooses to do with her time has absolutely nooooo impact on you or any aspect of your crappy life. youre just a loser trying to make yourself feel like youre doing something important for the world, when in reality youre just wasting a bunch of people's time. plus prostitutes are awesome.

  • Actually, it's called an escort service and they're quite common. Let's say you're not terribly lucky with the ladies, but you have a formal dinner event coming up. You need a date so as not to appear to be some kind of Microsoft-fellating layoff candidate, so you call them up, they send out a good looking girl who pretends to be your date. The boss is impressed by your babe, and you get a promotion.

    The latter mumbo-jumbo is making it clear that if you guys decide to romp, well, then you've decided as adults to romp. For the $600 you've paid for her time, you don't have to do a damn thing. Take her to the dinner and take her back. Your prerogative. She just offered, and I think it's damn sweet of her.

    In the real world, it's called dating. If all I had to do was throw down $600 to get a piece, my girlfriend would have a lot fewer lobster dinners.
