Ashley Dupre Gets Advice Column — Love It or Leave It?

Ashley Dupre, the former call girl who helped bring down Eliot Spitzer, has been weighing in on other people's relationships for a while now. Back in September, more than 80 percent of TrèsSugar readers actually agreed with Ashley's opinion that dating men for money is the same as being a call girl. Well now Ashley and her opinions are going big time in a weekly relationship advice column in the New York Post.

In this week's column she answers this question: "My boyfriend wants to know how many men I've slept with. Do I give an honest answer?" Ashley writes:

You don't give him an answer at all. It's really none of his business (and vice versa). It's like you asking him how many lap dances he's gotten in his life. You know you've each slept with people in the past. It's part of being an adult and has nothing to do with your relationship now and your possible future together."

Ashley's history with relationships might be questionable, but are you loving the fact that she got an advice column anyway?

also, i agree with her advice. there is no point in asking or answering that question because it's a really dumb question. the only two responses this kind of question can get is an "oh." or a big fight. what is the point? what number would make you or your SO the happiest? "just one, YOU"

reesiecup:"if anything, to estimate his risk of contracting venereal disease" DO NOT ESTIMATE, GET TESTED. Asking does not guarantee the truth, nor a diagnosis. Please, get tested and dont "assume" because "he looks clean" or "has only been with 1/2/3/1249123 people, it's impossible" NO it's not impossible, it only takes ONE.

i don't hate it cause lets face it- she's making the best if her situation by taking what is being offered to her and making (legitimate) money. anyone of us would do that. (no i'm not saying anyone of us would be a call girl, i'm saying anyone of us- if offered a job that was legit and paid well and was just handed to us would take it if we wanted it)

Dear lord. So she took money for sex. Big Whoop! Get over it. It's a emotionally demanding job and not one that just any person can do. I know I certainly couldn't and I respect sex workers who chose the profession. Belle De Jour got an advice column and I'd rather ask her advice than most people I know. Just because she took money for sex doesn't lessen her ability to think or act just like the rest of you.

I'm totally disguisted, how the hell does a "Call Girl", "Hooker" lands a great job at the New York Post? After what she did, it's a damn shame that we as a society glorify this type of behavior as if it's OK to sell sex and then get a great paying job as a relationship advice expert. What about the strippers who have a hard time finding a job, maybe I should just move to New York. I may be able to find a banging job, and all I've ever done was take my clothes of,not slept with anyone. I could give some love advice!

Well, maybe. It is reasonable to assume that, when you engage in a romantic situation with someone, they've probably had sex a few times and don't NEED to inquire much more. But...I think you SHOULD know how many times they had unprotected (tsk, tsk) sex, how many diseases they caught, and the last STD check-up they had. Those are numbers I care about, and need to know straight off the bat.

it's no business of strangers but i think your partner has the right to know at least a ballpark figure. if anything, to estimate his risk of contracting venereal disease. it sounds harsh but why would it be unreasonable to ask?

I agree with studio16. I don't get why you wouldn't tell your boyfriend. Hopefully you're close enough with him if you're sleeping with him to tell him.

I meant to add that I do like her answers about teenagers and men being unhappy, though. She doesn't seem stupid, just very childlike.

How is that good advice? Don't tell your boyfriend how many men you've slept with? Really? He's your boyfriend, not a random hookup. If it were a one night stand, I'd totally be down with the advice she gave. But in a committed relationship, people have every right to know how many other men and women their partners have slept with. I would expect to know how many women my boyfriend has slept with, and I would give him an honest answer. I'm sorry. I'm not trying to be judgmental, but she seems way too immature to be shelling out advice to anyone.

I was all set to hate her column, but I read the whole thing and she does give good advice. If this will keep her from going back to her former profession, I wish her all the luck in the world.

I agree that her advice is reasonable enough, but personally in with STD's and killer diseases running rampant I would want to go into any sexual relationship with my eyes wide open. How many of you would be okay with it if you found out your significant other had been with 50, 60 or 100 partners before you? I can't comment on the rest of her advice since I haven't read her column and I didn't see the episode of the view, but I'm standing by my previous post she's not qualified to give advice, unless it's to other hookers.

Her advice is reasonable enough, and I'd read it because I love those things for some reason, but it seems like she's just cashing in on her "celebrity."

After hearing her on The View this morning I love it. If I had been asked before I saw The View I probably would have said I hate it. I guess the saying is right "the proof is in the pudding".

exactly, akasha. i mean, what are her qualifications? isn't this just the way of america--do something outrageous, get your fifteen minutes of fame, and find a way to profit from it. regardless of whether or not she gives good advice, i find the whole thing just a sad commentary.
Akasha Akasha 7 years
This is just sad. The girl got her job because she first took money to sleep with someone and then sold the story. Isn't there some law about profiting from committing a crime? It's not like the girl has a degree in something other than being a ho. I'm curious as to how many people applied for that job who are actually qualified to give advice. What's next are Tiger's ho's getting talk shows or book deals? Okay yea they probably are getting book deals.

Her advice seems pretty reasonable, but I've heard some pretty good advice dished out on this site, and those girls aren't getting columns in the New York Times.

Yeah I agree with "notinthemood" i think it is kinda crazy to be asking a prostie for advice -- but the advice isn't bad -- although it sounds like she was reading from "Ask Prudence" or from "Dear Abby" so yeah I'll leave it!
notinthemood notinthemood 7 years
That was some good advice she gave, so credit where credit is due, but I find the whole concept to be mind boggling still. You must be pretty hard up for help if you'd go to a prostie for relationship advice.

If she's giving good advice, she might as well do something to improve her name.
chillchic chillchic 7 years
I also agreed. She may be a hoe but she seems to give good advice.

based on the advice she's dished out, she sounds pretty reasonable, I like it :)
