Prostitution is legal in Germany. And because of this, prostitution is a service/product that requires quality assurance. That’s why Kaufmich.com (which means “Buying Me” in English) is looking to hire “brothel testers” so that prostitutes have ratings and reviews for potential customers to peruse before they get into bed with them.

Obviously, banging in the back of a car can result in a number of comfort issues, but that’s easily resolved by taking a gander at the Sex.com Blog’s Guide To Car Sex.
Oh…and of course, inviting men from all over the UK to bang in the backseat of a truck could also motivate critics of the adult industry to label the initiative as prostitution. Sadly, UK pornstar Rebecca More’s new sex tour of the UK has attracted the latter problem. Continue Reading
I read a really interesting article today that breaks down some of the biggest misconceptions mainstream media and the general population have about sex work and its litany of workers.
Here’s the article.
I have mixed feelings about the article.
My main problem with the article is that, in its efforts to provide a real look at sex work, it manages to sensationalize and generalize what a lot of people probably do or don’t know about sex work. It’s obviously an extremely important subject that we should all try and be knowledgeable about, but buzzfeed-ification of the content doesn’t really help matters – the article looks flashy, and everyone loves top 10 lists (top 9 in this case, I guess), but the content never really dives below the surface.
Still, this is a great introductory piece about sex work to get those rusty old cogs in your brain turning. It brings up some interesting points that I personally had no idea about. The one that surprised me the most was point #4:
“The common pop culture image of prostitution would not be complete without a swaggering, violence-prone pimp hovering in the background. However, research suggests this phenomenon might not be nearly as prevalent as television would have us believe.
In a study of underage prostitutes and young adult sex workers, researchers found that only 10% of the 249 participants had pimps, and 47% of participants did not even know a pimp.”
I honestly was not aware that a minority of sex workers (at least, according to this study) are employed by pimps. My idea of sex work in that sense was definitely informed heavily by mainstream media, and the classic idea of a pimp. Glad I was wrong, though!
As sex work and the legalization of prostitution remains a hot button topic, its important to remember this key fact:
Everyone should have total control of their body and how they use it. If someone wants to sell their body for sex in a prostitution sense, or even in a stripping or pornography sense, they should totally 100% be allowed to without any fear of violence, criticism, or sex-shaming.
Gotta let people do their thangs!
Welcome back to another edition of Chico’s Sex Advice where I use all my expertise as a sexpert to answer any questions my beloved readers may have about sex.
“I am an 18 male and my question is of you think that it is acceptable in the 21st century for a man to lose his virginity to a prostitute? With all the pressure on teens to be fit, charming, look like Channing Tatum, be packing a penis the same size as a ruler and be an amazing lover it’s very hard for some males I believe to have to confidence to even try a one night stand let alone a real relationship.
I have just come to the conclusion that seeing a prostitute to lose my virginity might be like seeing a hairdresser to cut my hair, your paying a professional (of sorts) in that field of work. But this is all from my experience so your knowledge may differ.”
WOW. Now that’s a fucking question. Thanks V for taking the time to write me. Now onto the advice…
Since prostitution is illegal pretty much everywhere besides a handful of countries, I think that makes losing your virginity to a prostitute unacceptable by default. If you live in one of the countries where prostitution is legal, then by all means go for it. However, if you’re in a country where prostitution is illegal then you’re just putting yourself at risk to catch some kind of sexually transmitted disease because the sex workers are unregulated. If only the world would see the benefits of legalizing and regulating the sex industry, but that’s a whole different issue.
The problem here is the pressure.
Way back when I was still a virgin, I remember feeling the very same anxiety you feel now. But let me tell you, that pressure to be well-endowed, fit, charming, and be an amazing lover is not real. It comes for your understanding of sex, and your understanding of sex isn’t based on the act itself but its representation in the media.
Losing your virginity to a prostitute, a close friend or a stranger you met at a bar will all be equally awkward and uncomfortable. What I’m having trouble understanding about your question is how the pressure will evaporate once you lose your virginity. 15 minutes of sex won’t make your anxieties disappear, right?
Honestly, I don’t think losing your virginity will change anything. Even after you’ve lost your virginity you’ll still feel pressure to be fit and charming to attract other potential mates. And as your sexual career progresses, you’ll find that there’s no single criteria for good sex. Everyone is different with different sexual tastes. You shouldn’t feel pressure because the key to being an amazing lover is finding someone with whom you’re sexually compatible with. And ain’t no one knows how to do that, so there’s nothing to worry about.
All in all, I know losing your virginity seems like a big deal but it isn’t. You’ll have sex and you’ll find that you’re still the same person. And in time, you’ll forget the details of how it actually happened until what you’re remembering is just a shadow of a memory.
How many times will you remember a certain afternoon? An afternoon so deeply apart of your being that you can’t even conceive your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that.
Sorry to get all grandiose on you V but I just want you to realize that the pressure you feel to lose your virginity is insignificant. You’ll lose it eventually. You’ll have lots of sex at times. You won’t have sex at all at times. Life just ebbs and flows and the only thing you can do is make the best with what you got.
Are you guys already on Tinder?
If you said yes, then you already know that 99% of the time Tinder is an abyss of disappointment.
Tinder was supposed to make casual sex easy by matching you with hot, local singles for no strings attached fun, but everyone’s so damn self-conscious about being on Tinder that you never get to hook up with the hot, local singles you’re matched with. Which is fine if you’re only using Tinder to reassure yourself that someone within 100 miles of your current location would fuck you, but for those of us actually trying to have casual sex, it’s time to try a new app.
Thank God there is now an alternative to Tinder called Peppr. I guarantee that this app will get you laid because instead of matching you with hot, local singles, Peppr matches you with hot, local escorts.
Some of you might subscribe to the George Costanza sex and parking analogy that states, “Why should I pay for it when, if I apply myself, I could get it for free?” So why should you pay for sex?
No one says you should. But if you’ve got certain tastes, like kinks, pubic hair preferences, skin color preferences, you’re better off paying for it than not since Peppr allows you to set refining filters that will help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Using the app is free if you’re a sex worker, but the app collects $7 to $14 for booking fees from clients, which is shared with the sex workers.
From what I can tell, Peppr is only available in Germany at the moment since prostitution has been legal there since 2002.
So far, the Peppr app’s founder Pia Poppenreiter has said that she’s received positive feedback from the sex workers using the app since it’s safer than the streets (though all anonymous hook ups have their risks but we don’t need to think about that now).

Remember how difficult it used to be to find a quiet spot to have sex with that Swiss prostitute you picked up on your vacation in Zurich?
The city of Zurich has listened to your complaints and have made it easier to have sex with their local prostitutes.

It’s the story of the relationship between a 38 year old disabled virgin and the sex surrogate he hires to lose said virginity. The movie stars John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, and William H. Macy. It’s out in theaters tomorrow, why not go see it?
While this Blog would love to dedicate an entire post to free promotion of The Sessions, instead we’d like to do one of our patented breakdowns. Today, we will be explaining sex surrogates. If you are already an expert on sex surrogates, feel free to stop reading and go back to the mainpage.
Spanish police made 80 arrests for “Operation Emperor” in Madrid today. “Operation Emperor” targeted Chinese mobsters laundering money in Spain. The racket was allegedly made up of traders who sold contraband goods in Spain, laundered the money and sent it back to China.
Surprisingly, among the 80 arrests was male porn star and Evil Angel shooter Nacho Vidal. You may remember Nacho Vidal from such films as Cumback Pussy 21, Cumback Pussy 23, Cumback Pussy 24, and Nacho Invades America 2.
Nacho was running a company suspected in laundering the Chinese mobster’s money.
