The Real “Magdalena”

Thanks to everyone who has bought a copy of "Magdalena - A Prostitute's Life in Costa Rica." Some people have asked me a few questions about the book so I thought I would do what I could to answer them here. Probably the first question people ask is "Is there a 'real' Magdalena?" The answer is a definite "sort of." There was one chica whom I interviewed … [Read More...]

Audiobook of Dances with Prostitutes

It's not yet available for sale, but "Dances with Prostitutes - Costa Rica Style" will soon be available as an audio book. Obviously I want it to be a success, but more than whatever money it makes for me, it was a LOT of work. When I started the project, I knew there would be some obstacles. First thing I had to fight was the noise outside my bedroom, … [Read More...]

He Would NEVER Pay for Sex

It can be a matter of pride. The idea never occurred to me until I was approaching 50. I wish it HAD occurred to me, but I never seriously considered it. I don't think I was too PROUD as much as I had a lot of preconceptions about the whole business. And at the time and place I was, my preconceptions weren't too far off base. The options were streetwalkers, … [Read More...]

You’re STILL Not in Kansas

Continuing from the last post: ...she wants to give you a great massage and blow job... the reflex reaction is the same as back home, but the rational part of the mind says "wait a sec, dude, this is going to cost you." The next thought is "is this THE girl I want to spend my money on?" Despite the rational reactions, old habits die hard. Let's face … [Read More...]

You’re Not in Kansas Anymore

I was conducting a short tour with a rather young visitor to San Jose last week, and after we had walked around and visited a number of massage parlors and pensions, we sat at a table in the lobby bar of the Del Rey hotel and just chatted about the "hobby." The visitor was unusual in that he was in his twenties and in quite good shape, and rather good … [Read More...]

The Puritans Are Coming

They probably aren't LITERALLY coming. Or if they are, they are doing it in secret. But make no mistake about it, there is a serious effort afoot headed by the New Puritans to criminalize anything to do with sex and lots of things that don't necessarily have anything to do at all with sex. The more I read from these fanatics, the more I think they won't be … [Read More...]

A Little on the Side

Old joke: "Hey Bob, you been getting any on the side?" "Roy, it's been so long since I got any, I didn't even know they MOVED IT!" It doesn't amaze me anymore when I run into guys who say they are married or have a girlfriend and still like to partake in a little extracurricular sex. It should never have amazed me, but live and learn. I should … [Read More...]

A "good" Swedish Model

Oh Canada! or, What Could be Wrong with a Swedish Model?

Sex workers from all over Canada converged in Toronto on June 14, 2014 to protest against Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government's proposed crackdown on "Johns" and "Pimps." Just when I get to thinking Canada is a little island of sanity in an insane world, they pull THIS crap. The good news is that it's not law yet. The bad news is, it could be if … [Read More...]
