May You Live In Interesting Times…

Whoever wished that one on me had better watch out, because if I find out who it was, I’m going to stand on their bunions… HARD!

My life over the last six weeks or so has been eventful, to say the least, but it seems to be settling back to something almost recognisable as normal now, which means (fingers crossed) that I can start to catch up on my email. Well, I already have started, but if you’ve been expecting to hear from me and haven’t, feel free to prod me with a reminder.

 

Having changed my tune and started providing domination as a service, I have to say I’m thoroughly enjoying myself and can’t wait to get in a bit of practice in 2012. Which reminds me.

Naughty flatmate! Belated Merry Xmas and I look forward to giving you a good thrashing in the new year!

In case you hadn’t noticed (Yes you! pay attention at the back!), I’ve had a new field report.  So there you have it. Further proof – if you needed it – that I aten’t dead. Not only that, but that I am a sex goddess and social chameleon *preens*. Oh alright then, no I’m not, but I’m not half bad. In fact, as not bad goes, I’m really rather alright. Smile

Anyhoo…

Interesting times or not, I was alternately amused and irritated to see that the Highland News seem to have appointed themselves the moral guardians of Inverness. Their article on the dating website for married folk who fancy a bit on the side may have been intended to stop such shenanigans, but the cynic in me wonders whether it wasn’t just a sneaky bit of advertising for the “security company” mentioned. Ooh! Yes, we’re all terribly impressed that they’ve just taken on two ex policefolk, but really? You’re going to hunt down all the adulterers who fancy a bit of light entertainment because of the recession? Then what? Burn them at the stake outside the town hall? You’ll just cause a traffic jam and then nobody will be your friend. Or are you planning to tell their unsuspecting partners?

Excuse me Madam, I know you think that you are perfectly content with your life and you have a good relationship with your husband, but I feel the need to inform you that he’s been having it away with her at number seven!

If I’m not mistaken, you can’t just start randomly following people. You’ll end up being sued. People have been having affairs and quick knee tremblers when nobody was looking since time began. Right or wrong, it’s none of your business.

Whether or not the articles in question boosted business for the professional nosey parkers, I’m absolutely certain that they will have resulted in a dramatic leap in membership applications for the no strings sex site. So, yah boo sucks to you!

And just don’t get me started on the letters page where two Inverness residents were allowed to spout homophobic bile to a wide audience… Just don’t!

Minor Irritation du Jour

According to a poster on the Punternet forum, it is ‘not possible’ to have a relationship with an escort because there will be ‘an eliment (sic)* of deep mistrust’.

The evidence for this is a case in Wales where a man is accused of murdering his wife after they rowed over his use of casual sex websites.

How are these things linked you ask?

Well, the lady in question worked as a prostitute. Actually, so did her husband.

A classic case of 2+2=7 if you ask me.

I think the only thing this proves is that couples who spend all their time yelling at and/or battering each other should just split up and have done with it.

You either have trust in a relationship or you don’t. What your partner does for a living is completely irrelevant.

I turn my back for 5 minutes…

Ok, it was about 24 hours. Just enough time to do 2 outcalls on opposites sides of Scotland (Yay for Superfloozy 🙂 ), but that’s hardly the point is it now?

Everything was fine yesterday afternoon and then I return home to this!

Harman challenges Arnold Schwarzenegger to shut down prostitute site PunterNet

WHAT??!!!!  Why??  So I read on and found that reason is:

The Equalities Minister condemned PunterNet, a site which allows men to compare and rate prostitutes, as “the ultimate commodification of women”.

Ok, let’s start with that:

PunterNet allows people (yes, men and women) to review prostitutes. Yes, we in the industry see it as a good thing. It helps people to choose the right girl for them. People are purchasing a service. Then they pop over to Punternet and let other folks know whether they got received a good service or not and whether it was value for money. They rate the service they got, not the girl per se. Much the same as you would pop over to a site and rate a Plumber or a Builder, but you won’t see Ms Harperson whinging about that in a hurry.

Outlining her plans to ban sex with women under the control of pimps, Ms Harman declared: “prostitution is not work. It’s exploitation of women by men.”

Read that very carefully. The Harpy Ms Harperson is not against exploitation of women, she against prostitution. Why doesn’t she just come out and say that? What about female clients? Do they not exist? Or do they not exploit? What about male prostitutes?  Oh deary me, have I poked a ickle hole in her argument?

Anyway, to continue, I’ll take this next quote one piece at a time:

Ms Harman said: There is now a website …

Woah! Great job Sherlock! It’s only been around since 1999!!

…where pimps put women on sale for sex and then men who’ve had sex with them put their comments on line

Pimps? If a pimp posted on there, well, let’s just say they would find him and show him the error of his ways…

Women for sale eh? Well as this was the London page that was being referred to I’ll have a Burlesque Honey and an Emily Jones  to go please. 🙂 But, first you’ll need to explain to them that “their pimps” have put them “on sale”. Go on, I double dare you Harriet! Stand really close to either of those girls, or any other on that page and say that to them. That’s the problem though isn’t it. We have no voice. Equality my lily white arse! Do you have any idea how frustrating it is to be shouted down by man-hating radical feminists at every turn?

Anyway, back to the point at hand:

It is the ultimate commodification of women and puts women at risk. It is truly degrading.

Firstly,  just for my own gratification: Commodification? Making up new words are we?

No it isn’t commoditisation, we provide a service and we choose to advertise that service on PunterNet.

Risk? The only one putting women at risk here is Harriet bloody Harman!!

Degrading? Why is it? Because you (Harriet) would find it degrading to have sex for money? Well you’d better not do it then eh? I, on the other hand, do not find it degrading at all. So don’t pass your feelings, morals and ideals off as mine. Ok?

Think on this:

In the early 20th century, when women asked to be heard, they were patted on the head and told that they didn’t really know what they wanted. How could they? They were only women after all.

In the early 21st century, when independent, self employed women ask to be heard, you pat us on the head and tell us that we don’t really know what we want. How can we? We are only prostitutes after all.

You (Harriet, Julie et al) are a disgrace to the women’s movement.

Yours independently, un-pimped, un-coerced and so far (despite you) legally.

Feminists & Prostitution… A Challenge:

Thanks to a thread on Punternet Forums, I have been reading some bullshit fascinating reports on prostitution. These reports all have something in common. If you look up the authors, you will inevitably find out that they are not just feminists, but activistic feminists of the extreme variety. The kind of feminists who seem to be irresistibly drawn to working for such organisations as Rape Crisis. A few minutes of digging around on the internet for articles by said feminists leads one to wonder whether they work there purely based on the urge to use the phrase “Male violence against women” as often as possible.

Jan Macleod says in this article

PROSTITUTION is referred to as the oldest profession and is said to be inevitable because it’s always been here. That’s what people said about slavery.

Surely we want a Scotland where people have the right to live in safety and respect – how can we achieve that if we are prepared to tolerate women being used and abused in prostitution?

Most women enter prostitution because of lack of choice. It is the men buying sex who are exercising free choice.

Slavery? Used and abused? Lack of choice?

I will say here and now though, that I have more time for the opinions of Margo MacDonald, who is quoted further down in the same article. At least she has the sense to realise that the more laws are brought in to end prostitution, the more it will be driven underground. The further underground it goes, the more dangerous it becomes.

Another article from the same newspaper is imaginatively titled “Sex Industry in Scotland: Inside the deluded minds of  the punters”

Nice eh?

This piece starts with the line:

“ALMOST half the punters who use prostitutes in Scotland are so deluded that they believe the women actually enjoy having sex with them.”

Now tell me, what exactly is wrong with that? It’s not delusion. It’s fact!  We do enjoy it. On some occasions more than others, but that really isn’t the issue.

I wouldn’t mind if the people churning out these articles and reports and campaigning their dungaree clad arses off, were open minded, but these women include the likes of Julie Bindel.

In case you haven’t come across the lovely Ms Bindel, she is the kind of feminist who believes that ALL women should be saved from “daily penetration”.

I’m sure that Ms Bindel would read my website and promptly announce that I am deluded, a victim of male abuse and that I was probably an abused or neglected child. She would be entirely wrong.

I, on the other hand read this article and feel that I know all I ever wish to know about our Julie. I’ll give you a couple of quotes from that one, just in case you can’t be arsed to read it.

“In the late 70s a group of lesbians in Leeds, known as revolutionary feminists (RFs), made a controversial move that resonated loudly for me and many other women. They began calling for all feminists to embrace lesbianism. Appealing to their heterosexual sisters to get rid of men “from your beds and your heads””

“all feminists can and should be lesbians. Our definition of a political lesbian is a woman-identified woman who does not fuck men. It does not mean compulsory sexual activity with women.”

“ “We think serious feminists have no choice but to abandon heterosexuality,” it reads. “Only in the system of oppression that is male supremacy does the oppressor actually invade and colonise the interior of the body of the oppressed.” It also asserted that penetration “is more than a symbol, its function and effect is the punishment and control of women””

“For me, however, my lesbianism is intrinsically bound up with my feminist politics and my campaigning against sexual violence.”

“I think it’s time for feminists to re-open the debate about heterosexuality, and to embrace the idea of political lesbianism. We live in a culture in which rape is still an everyday reality, and yet women are blamed for it, as it is viewed as an inevitable feature of heterosexual sex. Domestic violence is still a chronic problem for countless women in relationships with men. Women are told we must love our oppressors, while, as feminists, we fight to end the power afforded them as a birthright. Come on sisters, you know it makes sense. Stop pretending you think lesbianism is an exclusive members’ club, and join the ranks. I promise that you will not regret it.”

So…. Ms Lesbian by choice Bindel can make an informed choice to become a man hating pain in the posterior, but because I disagree with her, she would say that I am wrong and that I should not have the right to be a man loving lady of negotiable affection?

I love men, men of all shapes, sizes and ages. I choose to work as an escort. I don’t work on the streets, I don’t have a drug habit, I am not trafficked.

By all means ladies, do all you can to stop the horror of trafficking. Rid this country of sexual-slavery.

Combat poverty so that women need never prostitute themselves out of desperation.

BUT!!!

Not all of us are here for any of those reasons. Whether you like it or not, some of are educated ladies who love sex, love men and love what we do for a living.

I challenge these radical feminists and political lesbians to speak to women like me. Include us in their reports. Add us to their statistical data. But they will never do that. It doesn’t fit in with their crusade and if they did, they would twist our words and make assumptions based purely on their narrow minded beliefs.

The only fear of  oppression I have, does not come from the male of our species. It is the fear that these women will get their way and my career/lifestyle of choice will be made illegal. If that happens, I shall take great delight in pitching my tent on Julie’s lawn (that  – dear reader – is NOT a euphemism).
