Possible Job - Need Opinions

Postby Lady Maven » Thu Jan 20, 2011 1:48 am

OK, so I have applied for a position I really REALLY want. The first time I was asked in for an interview but I bowed to family pressure and turned it down. This time a similar position has opened up and I know I can get the interview and I am pretty damned sure they would hire me, since it is a job I am rather uniquely qualified to do.

It is as a house mother in a legal brothel. A brothel Penthouse is opening near me. The job would consist of taking care of the girls, fixing their costume and make up (my years as a costume designer would be a big plus here) and making sure that the girls are not molested in anyway they have not agreed to, and making sure they get condoms and accesories and.. well, being a mother. A somewhat unconventional mother, but a mother never the less.

The first time the old man was NOT amused. And my mother nearly had a heart attack. But Penthouse pays well, has excellent benefits, and all in all it is a pretty cushy job. I say they need to suck it up and deal.

To be clear, I am not going in to prostitution myself (I have no issue with the concept, but let's be fair at this stage they wouldn't evejn let me BUY a hooker much less BE a hooker) I am personally doing nothing I consider immoral or even in a grey area. But I am starting to get the feeling I am alone in this.

Thoughts? Opinions?

LOL, I live in Reno ... and actually it is pretty fucking cheap to live here and we have no state income tax.

And we have the only legal prostitution in the United States. Pretty progessive for a Red good old boy state. But it is not legal everywhere here, something like half the counties are legal.

edit/ In fact where I live in Washoe county it is NOT legal, so a drive to another county IS a consideration.

Actually Owly, I think male prostitution is only legal in Nye county.

And actually.. sick as it may sound.. I kind of think I was born for that job too. I am very motherly.. in a strange way.. I am not easily embarrassed, especially by sex of all things, and God help the poor dumb bastard who harasses someone I am supposed to take care of.

edit/ I am wrong it is legal for males now every where it is legal for females, just Nye was first county to hire one.

oh yeah just go for it if you don't have to worry about the social stigma too much. Just tell people that you take care of your horse for a living and you'll be fine.

My views on prostitution is that it should be legal. Girls undergo health checks, good legal brothels take care of their girls, much much better than the illegal alternative.

That said, from what I heard while living in Reno, not all legal brothels take good care of their girls. It sounds like you would, and that alone would make me encourage you to take the position.

Kenos, at this stage of life I have pretty much determined that I am NOT running for public office, so stigma is nit the issue. At least generally. I don't think the job is morally reprehensible, but many members in my family do. Frankly, I think as long as two adyults are consenting everything else is no one's business. And I like taking care of people and I don't think that prostitutes are less deserving because of their job. My mother however says that I am supporting vice and sin my son refuses to discuss the topic at all and the old man wants to know if there are family discounts :roll:

No no no Owly, pimps and madams are specifically illegal here. But it is kind of a cute title.

The public office/executive position thing (for you and your close family) would be my largest concern for you. I don't think it's any of our place to say you should or shouldn't do something based on our own moral standards if the standard for your area allows it.

I guess one of my questions would be: if you had one hour to decide, what would you do? Once you've thought it through from one end to another, there's nothing much more than your gut left.

You might not be madam, but (having no recollection of what you look like, so no offense intended at all) maybe "Big Mama Maven" (thinking about Chicago).

I have to tell you left to my own devices this would be a bragging thread not a questioning thread.

And a stint in prison in my early 20's killed any hope of public office for me, lol (yes prison, not jail)

There is a great deal of debate even here about whether or not we should still have legalized prostitution. Some of the girls have claimed horrendous treatment, though it seems to mainly stem around not being allowed to turn down a client without being fired from what I can tell (but frankly, it is rather like that in MOST industries...) and there are Oregon pimps who have shipped underage girls here, last big bust was in '98 but they still say it goes on. The girls bitch that the doctors they have to see look down on them, and frankly a lot of non sense that they chose when they chose this life And some of the other complaints have to do with erotic escort and massage services offered in places like Craigslist and even the bloody phone book, prostitution here is ONLY legal in a brothel, no street walkers and not supposed to be offering services independently. But it is a grey area. Making a livlihood from a prostitute is illegal (hence no pimps or madams) the girls in the brothel are independent contractors who pay the brothel for their room and other services, I hear 50% of the fee.

How it works is a guy comes into a place, and the girls line up. The guy takes his pick and he and she (or they) go into a room and negotiate a fee, with a house minumum, which is listened to on a monitor by the management, or house mother, and the brothel gets half. If the clinet arrived in a taxi the taxi driver gets 30% of the prostitutes share. Then the man is checked for STD lesions and umm... a little "fluid" is collected and tested then they can get down to business. I can see why the girls would bitch about the wages, but that seems like a negotiation with management thing and not a lets get the legislature involved thing.

If people are being beaten or raped or forced into it then those ARE all crimes and the perpetrators should go to jail, but I do not think it is fair to make it a univeral truism that ALL prostitutes in legal brothels are abused or mistreated.

That kind of depends on the position doesn't it?

I think you would be great at it. If friends and family are hung up about it, too bad for them. If they really give a shit about you they will get over it. I could see the kid being embarrassed about the whole thing and not wanting to talk about it. But is that a morals thing or more of a kid not wanting to talk to his MOTHER about anything involving sex? Can't imagine you raising a kid to be a self righteous prude.

Just like many things prohibited, there is far more damage from the criminalization than ever comes from the crime. On some level, sex is always bought and sold. Not as blatant as a brothel perhaps, and the currency isn't always money, but bought and sold none the less. We just don't want to admit it.

I've known both prostitutes and a couple of porn stars in my time, and to a person they were all great people if you could get past the whole fucking for money thing. If I wasn't so old and worn out I'd have me a good camcorder and one of those grandpa does teen sites. Probably wouldn't make much money but I wouldn't care. :twisted: I don't see what the big deal is in spite of being raised Catholic, LoL. To me the more subtle commerce of sex is much less moral.

If you would be good at it(not a question really), Enjoy it, and it pays well, Why the hell not? This is something you could easily do into your nineties or beyond. And it's either going to be very interesting or very boring. I think I'd bet on interesting.

I can't believe I raised a prude either but he SO is. I KNEW he would marry the first girl who let him touch her fun bits. And he did.

My family does not care about me nearly as much as they care about appearances. Which I think is why I out so many of their secrets here. It is my petty vengence

Thought you were talking about a younger kid like your stepson maybe. Now it puzzles me more :? I hope you know my confusion is more of a compliment to you, or at least my image of you over the years. I'm like the polar opposite of my parents as well though, yet alike in many ways also.
