      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

PROSTITUTION

Recommended Posts

Referred to as the world's oldest "profession," prostitution is defined as the act or practice of selling oneself for sexual purposes. It is also defined as an unworthy use of a talent, quality, or the like, especially for personal gain. What's interesting is that the former is illegal in all states except Nevada while the latter has been morally and culturally accepted since the beginning of time. This begs the question: is there any difference between a street walker/escort and a person who uses their physical beauty to attain a lifestyle that others labor very hard to attain? Too often in our society we see evidence of the "trophy spouse"; a reward received by those who achieve success in business or entertainment. The marriage consists of a person who sees a beautiful spouse as something to obtain and a person who deliberately shops lifestyle by any sexual means necessary.

 

Some would argue that prostitution should be made legal so that (just as with drugs) it can be regulated by the state and become a source of revenue enhancement. Furthermore, sex between strangers would be safer since the government (as in Nevada) would require regular medical examinations to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. The problem facing this country is that we haven't reconciled these two definitions thus creating the existence of a double standard. We are quick to arrest and condemn the street walker/escort but would never think to shun a sexual opportunist. In many ways, prostitution already is legal in our society. People pay to watch two people have sex with each other but yet cannot pay each other for sex. I recall two people comparing their lifestyles while waiting in line at the airport. One person told the other "the difference between you and me is that you pay for your sex with cash and I pay for it with dinners, clothing and jewelry". The problem with this country today is not that we are a nation of laws but rather a nation that continually contradicts itself when it comes to morality.

As is commonly known, the wealthy can buy all the drugs and sex they want. It's a class war based on trumped up morals by hypocrites.

Yeah, supposedly, deriving income without labor is morally corrosive. Anyway, that's the story for the majority of us.

 

I think the dream of a morally perfect society (as some conservatives see it) is as much wishful thinking as a socially just one (as some liberals see it). Just a variation on your basic utopia (no-place) or Eden (exists only in myth).

 

Don't know if we should keep striving for that pie-in-the-sky or just resign to fate.

 

Sometimes life seems as expressed by Pangloss in Voltaire's Candide, i.e., "the best of all possible worlds", but I know it's not.

I suppose a libertarian society would be ideal given that most of us were mature adults but we're not.

 

I think it's important to protect young people from things that may harm their ability to function as socially responsible adults. On the other hand, it seems we have a double standard as a society when sex or the image of sex is used to push commercial products through advertising. Even if the message is unspoken existing on a subliminal level, the message is consistent that your possession of a particular product will enhance your appeal to the other sex. Need I say more?

The original post is obviously cut and pasted off of some lonely, misogynistic white-man's blog, Stonehead. Stop taking it so seriously. Or are you a lonely, misogynistic white man?

It isn't trask. Dude's simply a troll. I am amazed it took him this long to find CC.com. He registers on a sight, throws up BS and sits back and see's what happens. He will not respond to anything you have to say. He has registered and posted the same thing, plus other trolls, on summitpost a while back. Be ready for more of this.

The dude who posted this thread has an agenda, why the hypocrisy regarding using sex or the promise of sex to attain your motives? So why not do away with the hypocrisy and live life without duplicity?

 

Me, I don't see it as simple as that. But yeah, it's interesting that there is a double standard with regard to sexuality. Consider the Superbowl fiasco. The inadvertent exposure of a tit caused an outrage yet it's ok if Viagra commercials are run because it's in the name of consumerism. Same with the other sexually suggestive activities, e.g., cheerleaders--what other purpose is there to having cheerleaders? So the female expression of sexuality is prohibited unless it’s part of a something larger that’s officially sanctioned, in this case, selling a product or a lifestyle of consumerism. But, c'mon, the female breast? Those of us breast-fed have seen breasts as children. And, what about the double standard regarding upper body nudity among females and males? Also, what about white women's breasts and those shown in pictorials of pygmies in the Bushveld? Uh yeah, who'd get aroused seeing a floppy pygmy breast? The reality is that airbrushing, makeup, and other photographic tricks make what seems arousing less so if viewed as it really is, warts and all.

 

"When did sex become a bad thing? Did I miss a meeting? Playboy - pornography - causes sexual thoughts. Penthouse - pornography - causes sexual thoughts. You know what causes sexual thoughts when it's all said and done? Let's cut to the chase; I'm tired of the debate, OK? I'll clear it up for ya mmm right fucking now. Here's what causes sexual thoughts... having a dick. End of story. I can speak for every guy here tonight, aaaand, OK I will. In the course of our day ANYTHING can cause a sexual fucking thought. You can be on a train, and it's rocking kinda nice. Pants are a little tight. Oh my God, I've got a woody! I got a woody on the El train. What are we gonna do, ban public transportation? I find it ironic that people who are against sexual thoughts are generally these fundamentalist Christians who also believe you should be fruitful and multiply. It seems like they would support sexual thoughts, you know, perhaps even have a centrefold in the Bible. Miss Deuteronomy. Turn offs: floods, locusts, smokers. I actually did that joke in Alabama, right. These three rednecks met me after the show, man. 'Hey, buddy! Come here. Hey, Mr Comedian! Come here. Hey, buddy, we're Christians, we don't like what you said.' I said, 'Then forgive me.' It seemed so obvious. You know? But we've gotta have an enemy, man. I'm tired of enemies; I'll be honest with you. I'm sick of enemies. I got no fucking enemies, K? K. It's a strange world; I don't know what we choose, why we choose the things we do as a collective. You ever wondered that? You know what I mean, the fact that we live in a world where John Lennon was murdered, yet Milli Vanilli walks the fucking planet. You know? Bad choice. Just from me to you, it wasn't a good one. But isn't that weird, we always kill the guys who try to help us. Isn't that strange, that we let the little demons run amok, always? John Lennon: murdered. John Kennedy: murdered. Martin Luther King: murdered. Gandhi: murdered. Jesus: murdered. Reagan... wounded. You know. Bad fucking choice."

Comedian Bill Hicks at the Vic theatre, Chicago, November 1990
