No, it's not a myth, it's evolution.

I think it's because some singles buy into the myth that sex stops when you get married.

At least, I think it's a myth.

maybe you spend your revenu on paid.sex with male prostitutes
I think I would go for a professional courtesy agreement, as in, we just won't charge each other.

The going rate varies a lot but starts at as little as CHF 120.- for half an hour including uncovered oral and sex. That's club rates, I've heard that as little as thirty francs can buy you sex on the street.

what's the going price on the market? just to estimate the budget compared to "free sex".
Surely you can google that

Ok, I´ll give you that one.

But, a very large but.. even if a woman wants casual sex and nothing more - she will still be seen as a whore.
Whereas men - are just gonna be seen as men.

For me, the most shocking thing is that prostitution in Switzerland is legal from the age of 16. This is absolutely shameful IMHO.

Why?
Younger men have higher libido's.
Unattached men have less opportunity for sex.

For men, finding a casual sex partner on short notice is very difficult. Paying a pro the money that it would otherwise cost him in dinner dates takes the uncertainty out of the picture and as a bonus she's not expecting him to call the next day anyway.
Are you married? If so for how long? Marriage/relationships and availability of sex are not necessarily linked in a positive way.

I expect dinner on the first date but will only bother going to dinner if I'm pretty sure I want dessert at home . After that, it depends on how skilled and attractive you are and how much older than myself. And never, ever pester me about meeting up, that gets you struck off the list right away. Hmm, maybe I should just order a professional too...

ETA: If someone calls you a whore, it's usually because they have their own little issues or feel threatened by your free spirit. The smug smile and healthy glow can also be quite annoying to others, I understand.

Re: Some facts about prostitution in Switzerland

Only 50% of customers are Swiss?

That strikes me as rather low.

In fact, I thought Swiss men were more likely to visit a sex worker than other nationalities were.

If we follow the normal theory that we are all different, unique individuals who all develop at various different speeds during various times in our lives, why is 16 so shameful ?

It is a law put in place by humans, basaed on a time scale devised by humans with absolutley no reference to biological facts. I don't condone prostitution from the age of 16, i personaly prefer a bit of experience, but it is hardly shameful for certain people.

We develop far quicker today than in past times due to the increased levels of absorbed hormones so maybe 16 is not so young. Most of my teenage daughters' friends are more than ready to go, and probably do so, well below the age of 16.

Mentaly there may be a problem, but there again with the amount of information available today, i hardly think so either.

I think paid-sex is definitely more expensive than free-sex even if you include other costs (diner, gifts etc...) because sex is recurring event
So paid-sex requires a good revenue more likely to be found in the older segment. I thought that married men go for paid-sex because it's the best alternative to a mistress which may interfere with established family life. I don't see the reason why an unmarried man would go to prostitutes.
Paid.sex is best condom against commitment.
I am not so sure about that statement from dealings with client's divorce cases.

Take the cost per bonk:
Assets of working husband; house; cash in bank etc; say £700,000
divide by two for 50:50 split => £350,000; say they have been together for 7 years => £50,000 per annum; say sex twice a month (appears to be average) => £2,083 a time!!!!!!

Personally, I am a tight bastard and wouldn't pay for a prostitute and in my opinion it is all about "the chase".
Saying that, as an accountant, I used to have my Excel spreadsheets with total outlay (costs of going out for meals); mileage of car (based on 30p per mile) and total time spent "seducing" divide by sex acts with a scale of performance (1-10). Us accountants/businessmen like to see a return on capital.

twice a month!! no wonder they get divorced.

so it seems the old joke "what do accountants use as contraceptives? there personality" would be about right

Yes, I was wondering about that stat as well. I think it means that about 75% of the men on here must be regulars.

You should read that as "50% of the men who were prepared to volunteer their data in exchange for an STD test are Swiss"
