Ashley Dupre Says Some Women Act Like Escorts — Agree?

If you guys haven't been following the blog of Ashley Dupre, the high-end call girl who helped New York governor Eliot Spitzer fall from power, let me catch up you. This week, Ashley called out a variety of people, including "ladies, ladies, ladies" who "just love to judge." Ashely thinks that these women shouldn't be so quick to look down on her past as a prostitute, since many women in NYC act like high-end escorts anyway. Ashley says she sees the following all over New York City:

I know many women who target guys with money and use them to get these things. They toy with them, flirt, go on dates, have sex, and then drop hints about that new dress . . . or being short on rent money — and the guys deliver it.

Do you think Ashley's right on the money or is there's a clear line between prostitution and gold digging?

I think it's the same. I knew a girl who's mother raised her to think she should be nothing less than a trophy wife. She would only talk to lawyers, doctors and pilots. The first thing she asked when a man tried to talk to her was what he did for a living. She saw nothing wrong with sleeping with the car salesman to get a discount on a new vehicle or to date a guy until somebody came along who made more money than the last.Gold diggers are just prostitutes by another name.

for me a prostitute is better than a gold digger. why? because she at least have a job, she don't illude anyone the client know how much shes gonna cost and she don't pretend be in love with the client.

You're all right: Sugar-Daddies and Golddiggers belong together, and they're getting fair goods for a fair price, but the rub is when some "normal" guy (if there is one, lol) finds himself targetted by the golddigger type. Maybe he doesn't WANT to hire a "date"...

Yes sloane220 they should. I was watching 20/20 and they had an episode about gold diggers and sugar daddies and the website that sets them up with each other ( yeah I know 20/20 has kind of gone down the drain) and these men may want to say that they are above buying sex like the johns but that's exactly what they are doing. When a man who is wholly unattractive, has the personality of a gnat, but a net worth of a small island nation can bag a Playboy bunny look alike because he pays her bills, can he really fool himself into think that she will be there if he were to lose his money? Just like gold diggers have to be honest about how parallel their practices are to prostitution, so do these sugar daddies who might as well start calling themselves johns.

@glowing moon- thank you! i was just about to bring this up. many of these men being "targeted" by gold-diggers, are targeting gold-diggers too, as long as they're attractive and provide sexual favors. nobody is innocent in ther situation, and they're both attracted to each other for superficial reasons, so both parties end up with exactly what they put into the relationship; a superficial result. i do agree that prostitution may be a more honest description of what the women are doing, but what about the men? should they really be calling themselves johns or tricks since they are paying for the company of an attractive woman who provides sexual favors?

Depending on the circumstances, I may have a low opinion about the men, too. Chances are, they are attracted to the women for superficial reasons, too, like for their good looks, sex, etc. If they did not find those women attractive, trust me, these men will not buy them dresses, pay their rent, etc. In my opinion, these men are no more noble than the prostitutes and gold diggers they're involved with. I think it's short-sighted to just judge the women. The men are being just as superficial, and are part of the same equation. I think they both deserve each other.

The only difference is that a prostitute tells you upfront how much the ride is gonna cost.

haha @x3Lorelei. I would have to agree with Ashley Dupre. There really isn't a difference between a prostitute and a gold digger.

Hah. Both deserve about the same amount of respect in my eyes. At least the prostitute has a job.
