    I had to look it up. Apparently providing sexual services for pay, as in prostitution, is legal. But the clients, who are primarily men, are committing a criminal act by using such a service. That makes some sense to me. Pimping also seems to be illegal. It falls under their definition of sexual exploitation.

    I'm not sure I understand. It's seems to me to be like saying "It's legal for me to sell my hamburger to you, but it's illegal for you to buy my hamburger."

    I can see the pimping to be illegal and falling under sexual exploitation.

    Well, now I had to look up the definition of sexual exploitation. Your definition seems different.

    They could make it a local standards thing like porn.

    I’m not sure I’d want street solicitation on my block, but consenting adults should be able to make any arrangements they want.

    Sorry - I think I'm getting confused. I wasn't trying to define sexual exploitation, but rather agreeing that "pimping also seems to be illegal. It falls under their definition of sexual exploitation.".

    My "hamburger" example was in reference to "Apparently providing sexual services for pay, as in prostitution, is legal. But the clients, who are primarily men, are committing a criminal act by using such a service."

    Sorta did. There’s a whole wide world of experiences out there…. The trick is to find a niche that matches your skill set and available market.

    Yes, I'm way way way smarter than that. But sometimes my humor misses the mark. Joke removed, but you'll have to remove it from your reply if you want it to be totally gone.

    Again, I recognized it as humor - all is well. Was just teasing back.

    Wearing a mask isn't that different from wearing a gag if that's your niche. Not my idea of a good time.
