Certainly police can still run stings by posing online as either prostitutes or johns, but for the most part it seems as if law enforcement has realized this task is a losing battle that’s not worth fighting.So I suppose all this really means, in the big scheme of things, is that prostitution has, like pretty much everything else, gone digital, resulting in a new and somewhat safer venue.It seems these days that if you're going to write on the topic of sexual orientation, sexual self-identity, self sexual anatomy, and all the combinations of those things and more, and what they are called, you need a thick up-to-the-minute-current dictionary to make sure you're not going to unintentionally offend one group or another. Check the numbers, your more likely to be raped by a priest than an uber driver.Which is why some diplomatic people are afraid to talk about the various sexual orientations etc. Not only might they offend people who don't like the concept, they might actually also offend the minority they're trying to recognize. When will the world wake up and realize you can't just suppress human nature and pretend like it doesn't exist?Furthermore, the Internet in general has long been an open-source supplier of porn and sexual adventuring, with websites like Craigslist and Backpage blatantly catering to the sex industry.Heck, I even remember (far too vividly) the pre-Internet era when “escort ads” appeared in the personals sections of certain newspapers and magazines.
Laughable ubertarians just laughable in the face of world wide condemnation.Robert Weiss LCSW, CSAT-S is Senior Vice President of Clinical Development with Elements Behavioral Health.An author and subject expert on the relationship between digital technology and human sexuality, Mr.I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing these apps skim a percentage of any payments received by the sex worker (a la Uber and Lyft, where the app automatically deducts a percentage of the ride-share driver’s fee). And it’s hardly a leap to envision a ratings system similar to those used on restaurant apps, ride-share apps and all sorts of other apps.Honestly, I don’t know why I’m troubled by the advent of prostitution apps.
