Humans are so weird. I finished reading this article on the New York Observer talking about female escorts and the type of men that hire them, and I'm kind of just like, what? Maybe my head has been under a rock for the past few years because I had no idea the escorting business 1) still existed 2) is growing exponentially. I don't really know what my stance is on this because I'm a little confused. I don't know whether it's empowering, but also degrading, and how men can "review" women's performance in bed/how intelligent they are on a website titled The Erotic Review (which is what the article mostly speaks about). It's a somewhat long, but very well-written article, disguising some gross (degrading) parts in academic jargon, but still easy to swallow. I think it's less of the escorting business and more of the reviewing women business that disturbs me. PS the article is titled The Luxury Rental Girlfriend. I think that speaks for itself.
