Woman sues her ex-boyfriend for saying that she was not a prostitute.

An interesting man-bites-dog turnaround from the usual.

Think about when it harms a woman's reputation to say that she was not a prostitute.

This woman blogged under the name "Belle de Jour"? Like that Catherine Deneuve movie? (Ever see it? Pretty wild.)

Odd but her face reminds me of a younger Hillary.

According to the article, the claim was in a lawsuit. That's not (I don't think) actionable in the US, but maybe it is in Scotland.

Ann Althouse said...

I've seen the movie. I wouldn't call it "wild." I don't get that.

I second the Catherine Deneuve thing. Pretty good flick.

I wish I understood the historical context better, though. What a drag it is being young.

Saw Repulsion (1965) not too soon before having seen Belle de Jour. Kept waiting for the razor.

Bummer.

Looked at the photo. She was evidently the box wine of high-class hookers.

If one makes a career as she does, providing lurid entertainment by claiming to have lived in infamy, all normal points of honor are inverted.
I think this sort of thing would be more common, if it weren't that we have rushed so quickly to embrace immorality that there is rarely any occasion to suspect secret, inconvenient virtues.

Back when I was Pimping one of the trickiest parts of the business was assigning prices to the individual girls.

Sure, they all want to be special, but very few men are going to pay $150 for a $50-caliber girl, it is how the free-market works.

Now you have the situation where Heather is mad that she is only a $50 lay when Tiffany gets $200. Heather: you will never break into the $100+ category when you are missing that many teeth. Even anal will top out at $75 for you, child.

The problem is compounded when Tiffany brags about her status, how she makes more than the other girls and doesn't even have to do anal.

This kind of division can ruin a stable quickly. And then there is always an 'Angela'.

Angela will earn $150 from a customer. Once. At that price, though, men expect a certain level of vaginal hygiene, and -- when it is not up to a suitable standard -- their next visit will be with Misty or Coral. Girl, do the maintenance.

And then their is the sensitive subject that is race. There are a lot of white husbands out there looking for some side action, and they are -- shall we say -- more 'comfortable' with the white girls. Add supply-and-demand and you have tensions in the workplace.

This is exacerbated by the fact that -- when a white man chooses a black girl -- he is probably only in it for a blow-job, and blow-jobs cost less. I am not saying you should exclude minorities from your stable, but you have to be aware of pitfalls before they happen.

The other side of the race issue are the Japanese girls. Put a Japanese girl in a schoolgirl outfit with thigh-high white socks and she is worth $350, easy. Add anal and you're at least at half-a-grand.The shoe is now on the other foot, white girls.

In other words: Pimping ain't easy.

Evidently it is bad for business.

But a whore by any other name is still a whore, and smells like one too.

Laslo Spatula said...

I tried subtly to explain to Angela the importance of vaginal hygiene.

"Angela," I said, "You are a business, like any other business -- like a Starbucks, say."

"People will gladly splurge on the coffee beverages, but if they go into the restroom and the toilet is stuffed up with paper towels, there are puddles of urine on the floor and there is shit and hair in the sink, well, they probably won't return to that particular Starbucks for their next coffee."

She didn't get it.

At least Heather with missing teeth knew enough to use Listerine.

You can lead a whore to water etc etc.

Markets fluctuate. Angela was a $150 girl for quite awhile, until she became a $75 girl.

Angela always thought she had a weight problem, and the bulimia kept her thin save for the breast implants -- with less of a gag reflex, which is actually a plus in her profession.

However, she then started to dabble in meth. Soon thin became gaunt and teeth became loose. Men, when enjoying a blow-job, do not like to see a tooth come out in the midst of the activity.

So: a $75 dollar girl, on her way to the $50 bracket. Needless to say, Heather loved watching this happen.

My point: between bulimia and meth, err to the side of bulimia.

I am Laslo.

Laslo Spatula said...

It is important for a girl to know her market. Suki, the Japanese girl in the schoolgirl outfit with thigh-high white socks, was worth $350 and more.

Until she got a spray-tan.

A Japanese girl in a schoolgirl outfit with thigh-high white socks may well be worth $350, but an orange Japanese schoolgirl is only going to bring $150, tops.

It is about keeping the illusion, girls.

Coral: there was a fine working girl. Cheerful, optimistic, enthusiastic.

She knew she was always a second choice to Angela, but she made the best of it, and soon the second-choice became first-choice for many of the returning clientele. Hell, she even cuddled afterward with some of her select regulars -- a break in protocol, sure, but it was part of her charm.

Adding a Cheerleader outfit to her repertoire certainly didn't hurt matters any.

However, this kind of a girl will always end up with a customer who wants to save her from the business and make her a home.

Sometimes you have to beat down a customer for putting the wrong thoughts in a girl's head.

As long as you don't leave them with a broken nose or black eye they will return.

Tiffany was consistently a problem: she was a Prize, and unfortunately she knew it. She would occasionally make comments about not needing a pimp to the other girls, that she could go it alone as a call-girl and service only the best customers.

This is where networking is important. For instance, a drug-dealer acquaintance can always hook you up with an addict in desperate need.

So you pay the addict $200 to have an appointment with the troublesome girl and have him rough her up a bit -- some slaps, some hair-pulling, maybe a little light choking: nothing that will damage the goods, of course.

Then you bust in the door and beat the shit out of him in front of the girl. Sure, the guy gets a beat-down, but now he has money for his drugs, so it all works out.

Who needs a Pimp? YOU need a Pimp, Tiffany.

I am Laslo.

Misty: she was a strange one. Good schools, good parents: it was easy to picture her dressed in business attire, working as an assistant at an accounting firm and rejecting the sexual advances of her boss based on principle.

I didn't expect her to last long in the business, but she surprised me: worked six years straight.

She just liked cock: as simple as that.

A shame about her lazy eye.

I am Laslo.

I've been following Dr. Magnanti's writing for a while. She's a former call-girl, now scientist and activist for sex worker rights. As such, she is under relentless attack from prohibitionists. Her crazy ex-boyfriend made all kinds of claims about how she was a fraud. Unfortunately for him, she relentlessly documented everything so his claims were revealed to be complete garbage. Now she's fighting back. Good for her.

dbp said...

I was kind of surprized when I saw the picture of Dr. Magnanti. She is attractive and was probably more-so when she was active in the trade. I picture Russian model levels of beauty when it comes to high priced call girls. For $500/hour I would expect a face free from pock-marks.

Not that I would ever hire a pro, my information comes from movies and the few times I was hit-upon (in sometimes pretty nice districts) the ladies were much more attractive.

Laslo Spatula said...

Another problem with the girls: three-ways.

Sure, easy as a Pimp to book and arrange, but -- inevitably -- the fact that one girl is being paid more than the other surfaces: it always does.

So the threesome is going, and the more attractive / more expensive girl is doing most of the fucking, while the lesser girl is basically watching and feigning interest while occasionally licking the guy's balls as he bangs the other chick. Worse: occasionally a requested rim-job.

Point of contention: the cheaper girl, in a three-way, gives the rim-job. There is no extra money in it, just: rim-job.

And: some customers have better hygiene than others. Anally.

You have to lick the cards you were dealt.

I am Laslo.

I might never leave this post.

Big Mike said...

The short article raises a couple interesting questions. First, is prostitution legal under Scottish law? Given the reputation Scots have for being dour, I'd assume not, but one never knows. If so then, secondly, is there a statute of limitations? Or is Dr. Magnanti setting herself up for a jail term if she wins the suit?

Dear Mary,

The M18A1 Claymore mine discharges over 700 1/8" steel balls at 4000 feet per second.

Which one of those spell numbers will you and Dr Gingko Biloba use?
