So being paid money for sex is "smarter" than giving sex freely just because you actually LIKE the person?
Just because money was not involved, doesn't mean I wasn't getting something out of it. There was emotional payment, sometimes millions of dollars worth!
I wasn't sleeping with lecherous creeps off the street.
And -- often I wasn't even having SEX with them at all. I was called a whore in junior high, for just KISSING a boy, when I liked another one.
I was not a whore. I was not a stupid whore, either.
