a clarification of terms
i am a whore. i mean this quite literally. i am not a "corporate whore" or "retail whore" or one of those "we're all selling ourselves for the man so really aren't we all whores deep down inside?" whores. no, i am a good old fashioned whore, otherwise known as a prostitute.
i have sex for money. granted, legally, my clients (aka johns or tricks) are paying for my time, my expertise, my consulting fees. but when it comes down to it, it's all about the the cash and my pussy.
so why don't i call myself a prostitute or an escort to rid folks of confusion? because i like the word whore. it sounds good to say. it feels good to type. and it fits me better. prostitution refers to the act, but whore refers to an identity. plus, escorts work for agencies (kinda like how alcoholics go to meetings).
so the next time someone im's me and acts all shocked and appalled when they realize that i'm not using "whore" euphemistically, they have been sufficiently warned.
