Money is King

Last night, I was watching a little bit of Hannity and Colmes on Fox News Channel. Among their guests last night were a pimp who ran a legalized bordello called the Bunny Ranch in Nevada and two of his prostitutes.

Alan Colmes asked one of the women, why she was doing what she was doing. She said it was all for the money. She said she was only 20 years old and already she was doing very well for herself making well over $100,000 a year. The other woman said she had a degree, but said she chose to do what she was doing because she could make a lot more. Sean Hannity even quoted the words of Jesus "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?" to the woman with the degree. Her answer, "I've already lost my soul".

So my guess is she has sold her soul to Money. For the sake of money these two women chose to sell their bodies rather than use their brains to make a living. I guess for them it is a lot easier to make that kind of money selling their bodies.

My final conclusion from watching the interview with these two women is that in America you cannot say you were driven to prostitution due to poverty or lack of opportunities. But still I wonder how women who choose to do this, can look at themselves in the mirror and not hate themselves for doing what they are doing. Have they really learnt to separate their "work" from their lives away from "work"? Have they really learnt to treat their bodies as just a commodity, like any other skill you would use for employment?

I guess they must have, otherwise how else would anyone choose to prostitute his/her body for the sake of money.
