An age old practice
For the past 6000 years women have been second-class citizens although since the Industrial Revolution, it seems as if they have been allowed a degree of freedom. Allowed away from the kitchen and child-minding provided they look pretty and don’t have an opinion.
When times get tough women most often find themselves confined to the kitchen except on rare occasions as when back in the 1700’s, women stormed the palace of Versailles and demanded social equity. They didn’t get it then and it wasn’t long before French women became the most oppressed in Europe.
In today’s Middle Eastern war, it is the Kurdish and Yazidi women who have taken up weapons against daesh as have other

Will we pay a price for our pleasure and conveniences?
In most families, children are taught and encouraged to do their share to help maintain families and communities. This is natural and they can take pride in their contribution. But in the situation that has become more prevalent in the modern world is that children are being forced into lives of hard labour to help maintain adults who should know better in lives of privilege.
This is one of the darker sides of capitalism where in the case of mining, minerals are taken/stolen from the earth and much of the labour is performed by children were often paid so little that they remain perpetually malnourished and are constantly abused.

The concept of a woman offering sex for money and other favours is generally thought of as the world’s oldest profession and as far as we know, there has never been a time in human history where this has not occurred.
Today in many countries despite the cries of some moralists, what many regard as prostitution has been legalised in many countries. Yet when we look at many marriages, they are often little more than agreements validating sex for money.
Yet moralists around the world even though they may be prostituting themselves condemn the activity of the women who make themselves available to men, but

Would it make women safer?
From time to time various groups of people within society speak out against the world’s oldest profession. While most intelligent people recognise that what is referred to as prostitution caters for a very real human need and the trade makes up a significant part of the economy.
But before we continue, let’s clarify some terms as there are millions of women around the world referred to as prostitutes who could be referred to as sex workers, Escort’s or Courtesan’s.
The word prostitute means to go against one’s core values and beliefs. Therefore anyone prostituting themselves is doing themselves some psychological and possibly physical harm. Prostitutes may not necessarily like sex, they simply do

E-Mail Tracker Programs
1) Any time you see an email that says “forward this on to ’10’ (or however many) of your friends”, “sign this petition”, or “you’ll get bad luck” or “you’ll get good luck” or “you’ll see something funny on your screen after you send it” or whatever — it almost always has an email tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and emails of those folks you

Continued from Pt 15 – Part one.
If you have read this story from the beginning, it all took place in the latter part of the George W Bush era. For the past few years, selling my body has simply been a job that I become almost indifferent to. The greater delight I had was in giving people full body massages and making them feel better within themselves.
For those of you who don’t know, the typical Escort client meeting is one where there’s usually some polite conversation which often leads into listening to the clients sad life stories and I almost take on the role of a counsellor. Then quite often, I give the poor guy
