If it wasn't for the clients, Sex Workers would not be able to make a living from doing what we do. Put it this way...if you cannot cook to save yourself, you may go and eat at a cafe or get pre-made meals with that logic apply it to sex, if you cannot pick up at a bar or where-ever or if you have no sexual partner and you don't want to get yourself off and you want somebody else to do it with you then you go and pay for a prostitute's services...quite simple. Sorry to hear about her being taken for a ride by whoever the bastard was. It does happen to some Sex Workers but not all, however those are the stories that you hear more about though because there is a bottom line in the mainstream media to demonise that line of work and I bet you those media people partake in the viewing of porn or strip shows outside of work or maybe they pay for the services of an escort/prostitute. It's the great double standard.
