word to the wise

A word to the wise gentlemen...Do not tell your significant other/fiancee/wife that you've spent time researching the lives of "sex workers" (i.e. prostitutes). It's just not the best idea, even if you are claiming a strictly academcially-ethnographic-platonic approach. Better yet, how about you just don't do it at all?

Men. ~sigh~

P.S. And claiming to share the love of Jesus is also a really lame excuse to use for such "research." :)

I don't even know what to say.

I'm so sorry.

I hope someone will whoop up on him for you. I would do it with joy.

"men- sigh" is right.

Lord!

It was kind of joke...How can I begin to explain that which is Mike?

I'm glad you had fun on Black Friday...I'm sure you were most certainly NOT one of the hounds of hell. :)

...people are going to study sex workers. They have done so for at least 400 years in the West, and probably much, much longer.

Moreover, I don't see anything necessarily wrong with it. I myself have read up on the lives of a few male sex workers for grins and giggles (and possible career paths following my religion MA...joking. Maybe.)

I can do so because I'm single and will be so for the foreseeable future. Not a good excuse, I know, but in all likelihood I'm probably not going to end up dating anyone who reads this. :)

But this...with you...words fail me completely. Why would any guy in his right mind tell his intended about this? It's...even given that it's Mike, it's...

I think this is an exercise in futility, trying to express the momumental stature of this act. I'm going to bed. Take care!

Riiiiiight... ;-) Anyway, Mike (assuming you read this) whatever was said was between the two of you, I had no right to comment...just an irresistable urge to do so (I repent, I repent!).

And Jasmin, you definitely seem to have a sense of humor about it, or at the very least have decided to spare his life at the cost of a little public exposure.

Wait, maybe that was the wrong choice of words...

Anyway...much love to all!

Why am I not surprised!? Is there anything under Solomon's sun that Mikey hasn't researched yet? Wait. Scratch that. I just don't even want to know!!!!

Jasmin, thankyou thankyou thankyou thankyou thankyou... being married to you is going to be sooooooo good for him!

At least, we live in hope! :)

What?

Did Mike write an article about sex workers? I am sooo lost.

He should have interviewed me, I worked retail for a while and the effects of that impact one's life in similar ways.
