Hooker Ads – Why men are compelled to read them

Hooker When I used to advertised in the local newspaper for my clinical sex therapy services, I was invariably placed in close proximity to the hooker ads near the back pages, despite my protests. So for days I had to screen calls wondering about my "services". My response when pressed was "that girls who do what you are looking for, charge three times what I do, and that my higher education meant that I wasn’t "laying on hands…". I am the strictly educational therapist, and that you were looking for a more experiential sexual surrogate.

I was talking to my sweetie about advertising and he commented that all men read the back pages to check out the escort, massage, tranny, and hooker ads. The ads are entertaining, educational, a little shocking (they really aren’t saying that in a newspaper…), and slightly re-assuring. He said all the guys flipped to them after the Sunshine girl photo, and before the sports scores. He claimed that it gave men an out, if they ever needed it. For $200 plus, you could get laid if you were suddenly cut off. No strings, no hassles. If the hookers were advertising in the paper, chances are they were stable, adult, with their own places, and had a certain level of credibility. He said that 90% of guys wouldn’t act on it, but it is always good to have it in their back pocket. In watching the comedy troop the Doo wops fabulous winners of this year’s Just for Laughs Festival and they have a song about how they miss visiting whores and skanks in the towns they visit. There seems to be an appeal in reading the sleazy classifieds, and joking about having a hooker on retainer. Almost like a Mistress, only much, much less expensive.
