Maybe It's Rooted




Stuff reports the ladies of the night are struggling.

In an industry I have never found the need to engage, the one that plays on lust and erotic and/or base desires of the flesh,  it  is suggested to be facing new challenges in the age of the app.

Tinder, Grindr, findsomeone, and other hook up sites have the advantage that there is a good chance the pimp and the drug dealer will be cut out, not to mention the IRD.

Of course having liberated, and now equal females, out looking to score in bars and clubs does not necessarily make it safer as the Lower Hutt lady Warriena Wright might have figured out  as she plunged 14 floors on the Gold Coast after a date initiated on Tinder with Gable Tostee.

In the face of demands for  higher wages for no other reason than the archaic reasons we have had advanced by unionists since for ever, leading to self drive trucks in mines, electronically controlled container hoists, computers taking and processing orders at Maccas, self drive cars as public transport it seems this bold new age is wreaking massive change in the oldest profession.

Is the possible demise of that oldest profession in the face of the digital age and a contemporaneous raising of dangers, progress or not, time will tell but for now rooting for dosh might be rooted in its previous guise.

Surely, in the industry you're discussing here the "self drive" option has always been there.

There maybe a reduction in the sex industry caused by those who present a reasonable degree of physical attractiveness and thus can find a partner (through these new digital ventures) who's willing to bonk for the mutual enjoyment.

However there are plenty of people out there who lack the desirable features/attributes and therefore can only get sex by offering something else that is generally wanted by most people i.e. money.

Upon reason of biblical scripture, prostitution is not the oldest profession. Master Mariners are. Captain Noah of seafaring fame is mentioned well before hookers, sodomites and lawyers.
