Last week in a Tewksbury, New Hampshire public library, a woman was arrested for "sexual conduct for a fee," AKA prostitution. This is not unusual, neither the sex or the charging for it. What was a strange is how the article I read emphasized the silence of it all.
Sex happens in public, in parks and parking lots and anywhere else clothes can be taken off. Some gentlemen online even document sexual congress in a bus, although through a period of extensive research I have concluded that it is less of a bus and more of a van. If I ask for one thing in my smut, it is correct nomenclature, but I will admit "Bang Van" does not quite have the same ring.
Back to the topic at hand. Look, I appreciate that when prostitutes peddle their wares in the library that they are quiet about it, but it confuses me. Was she having quiet sex in the bathroom? Or did she lead her sheep outside? Let's investigate.
The scenario the cop detailed in the article went like this. He sat down in the computer lab and she walked up. With a pen and paper, they conducted their business in silence and then he arrested her.
How the hell did that exchange start? "Do you like to sex? Check below" with two boxes labeled "Yeppers" and "Nopey?"
And if he had not been a cop, where's the plan go from there? Quiet sex in the stacks? I get if you pay for sex in a public library you may not be too judgemental, but sad if you are not getting the loud version somewhere else. Sex should be a little out of control, a little wild with abandon as two monkeys mix souls and giggly bits. Public library sex could be a weird challenge for those trapped in the monotony, but a quiet hump on the average for money is just sad.
Also highly illegal. Do other professions deal with this? Are there articles of very hygienic prostitution in hospitals? I guess it would be hard to proposition an illegal act in a courthouse while remaining legal, but I like to think there's a prostitute with a real sense of justice loopholes out there. Or a lawyer with no morals, but that's crazy.
