AIBU to find this 'concept' vile and beyond belief.

Now, I know a minority of men pay for sex anyway but this just seems like an attempt to normalise the idea that women are a commodity, for sale on a menu in a cafe.

there's already an AIBU thread about this

Grim beyond belief!!

Gatekeeper Wed 10-Aug-16 13:52:25

It's absolutely revolting

I'm 52 and I really don't recognise the world these days- God knows what I'll be like when I'm a pensioner!

pigsDOfly Wed 10-Aug-16 13:55:33

Don't know where to begin really. It takes quite a bit to rob me of words but I think this probably does it.

Anyway, wouldn't that be classed as running a brothel and therefore illegal?

As you say, vile beyond belief.

The guy was asked whether they'd provide such a service for women. He said he would think about it. No need to think too hard, mate, because there aren't many women who would want that from a complete stranger in a public place.

pigsDOfly Wed 10-Aug-16 14:04:54

I'm trying to imagine how this would work. I've got this image in my head of men lined up behind tables drinking their coffee with a row of women on their knees under the tables servicing them, like so many cows in a milking shed.

I'm sure that's not the way it works but whatever, it's not a nice image.

pigs, one issue is booths apparently. Booths are not allowed I think by law in the place abroad where they are doing this first and the UK lawyers are currently in discussions about legalities in the UK. I suspect most British men would prefer a private booth.

(I have no personal objections to women selling sex if they want to)

WannaBe Wed 10-Aug-16 14:33:31

Surely this isn't even legal?

And I suppose there were never dodgy adverts in phone boxes of the 'French model seeks unusual positions' variety, rub and tug 'massage parlours' and the such when you were a lass and it was all green fields around here?

On street prostitution was far more common in the 70s and 80s too. Equally grim and arguably far more dangerous for the sex workers on the streets.

It isn't called the oldest profession in the world for nothing.

Of course there have been prostitutes forever but the way in which this normalises the idea that it is acceptable for women to be for sale is vile. It's different.

Flamingflume Wed 10-Aug-16 15:04:50

Most men don't pay for sex. The men who do pay for sex don't actually need to, they choose to. Why? because it is an acceptable choice to them. Normalising women being for sale will only serve to fuel those warped ideas in my opinion.

Women who claim it is a prostitutes choice to take money for sex and nothing to do with anyone else are forgetting the overall impact it has on how ALL women are treated.

LikeDylanInTheMovies Wed 10-Aug-16 15:05:19

But is it really that different from the women in shop windows in 70s Soho?

DoinItFine Wed 10-Aug-16 15:26:15

Indeed.

People only use that obvious untruth to pretend that men exploiting women sexually is an inevitability.

It's a political lie that positions something you think is desirable as a fundamental aspect of human nature.

Rather than, in this case, an example of a nasty tendency in some men to treat women as objects.

The idea that women were prostitutes before they were child carers, gardeners, hunters, healers, artists just reduces us to orifices for men to stick their dicks in.

Only people very much invested in misogyny believe or repeat such offensive, simplistic, asinine nonsense.

Does anyone else think it's some kind of hoax or one of those attention grabbing efforts by marketing students?

Flamingflume Wed 10-Aug-16 15:47:13

I agree, is it so hard to imagine a world where a minority of men don't think paying for sex acceptable?
It might change their attitudes towards women in general.

JohnLithgowsLargeForehead Wed 10-Aug-16 16:26:06

It is vile, really awful. And I just can't imagine how it would work... He said he probably wouldn't be able to have booths. Can you imagine the awkwardness of looking across at another man getting a blowjob at the same time? Though I've since read that it's not happening and it was just to get him free advertising for his escort agency business.

jellybeans Wed 10-Aug-16 17:13:08

I find it horrible. How can we have real equality whilst women are still seen as sex objects?

pigsDOfly Wed 10-Aug-16 17:31:25

I've no objections to prostitution if it's a choice made freely by the woman concerned but this man setting himself up as a pimp and getting free publicity for it just makes me very uncomfortable.

When did pimps stop being seen as low life scum living off the bodies of women and start being viewed as entrepreneurs?

Around the time the pimps and punters lobby started trying to convince us that prostitution was just "sex work".

That is so true. Paying for sex is not necessary and impacts negatively on all women.

AnotherPrickInTheWall Wed 10-Aug-16 18:27:21

It's the normalising of making sexual practices acceptable in a public place that really makes me sick.

Pettywoman Wed 10-Aug-16 18:31:05

I have no words. I agree, it impacts negatively on all women and the punters wouldn't exactly be covering themselves in glory either IMO. Seedy as fuck.
