Exactly. A market requires both supply -and- demand.

If you've read what I just had to say, hopefully you'll change your mind on that.
Nope. Male prostitutes still exist, men doing sex acts with other men for trade v. money is also something that tends to be ignored although it exists.
I never said otherwise. I simply agreed with your statement that "woman aren't generally inclined to pay for it", which is why I brought up supply and demand.

What gave you the impression that I didn't want to count all sex workers?

I agree that I haven't met many sex workers. That being said, it's one thing to say that I don't have much anecdotal evidence to support my views. It's quite another to say that the sex workers I've heard from don't have much anecdotal evidence. Did you disagree with Maggie Mcniel's article Not for Everybody?

Well I'm glad you did km. I came here with an idea, the idea that there is some crossover between polyamory, swinging and sex work. I haven't written a book about it though; ideas can be expanded on and you helped with this, so thanks.
