Powerful men and their pants.

...And we ain't talking about superman putting them over his tights!

The headlines reads "Who is telling the truth?", and we now know the answer, she is and he admits it.

So here was I thinking that Finland was developing it's own juicy little sex scandal - well, not really sex scandal at all, more like a shed-load-of-texts-from-the-foreign-minister-to-an-exotic-dancer scandal and then the Americans have to come along and do it bigger and better once again! A $5000 dollar an hour prostitute?! A young man could get quite over excited thinking about what could possibly cost that much!

A quote I heard this weekend - "The less like sex something is; the more punters will pay for it."

How much "not like sex" does $5,000 buy?!

Lara - "Sex is like software: it's better when it's free"

But doesn't that suggest that if it's like software, it only got good because loads of nerds tried it out to see what bugs there were first?! yuck - bad image! ;-)

It doesn't matter how many nerds there were before you. The only thing, which really matters, is that you need it... right? :)

Thank goodness this is all happening in the wired age when we can easily find out much more than we ever wanted to know about these kind of things:

Another perspective on the cost was mentioned in the same sentence as Charlie Sheen, "Guys like that aren't paying for the sex. They're paying for the girl to go away afterwards."

NBC also did an recent infoploitation piece:

Somehow it appears rather far removed from the impoverished and exploited Eastern European / Asians sold into slavery that the anti-prostitution campaigners seem to want to paint everything with.

OK, I retract my last statement about this not being exploitative. Read the latest revelation in the case:

I think we are about to see a lot more investigative pieces on prostitution come up, looking in depth at sex on the web sort of issues.
