Is that your metric of honesty? Really? So I can lie, cheat, and swindle my customers, but as long as I pay taxes on my gains I'm good?

Considering the "habits" of the people around my hometown, I would say yes :lol:

Doesn't Singapore care about this? Where are they working? Some of these girls looked just on the right side of the legal age of consent as well. Is this a new phenomenon?



They are not hookers. I had a talk with some of them.
It is the way they travel the world: they just dancing in Go-go clubs for 2 weeks and after that move to other country.

All of the Chinese and Vietnamese girls in Karaoke parlors, and Filipinas in pubs, are just there to make you smile, sing with you, and chat. They're not hookers. Same thing for Thai girls outside Orchard Tower. They really just want to give you a massage :cool:

The best thing is that, at most, they are "semi-pro's". Met a couple of Chinese women one morning outside FFoW... I was waiting to be picked up for golf. The ladies propositioned me... 9 AM on Sunday is just too early... so I bought them a coffee. Turns out they were here to work for jewelry and purses... one had just bought a tennis bracelet... the other reckoned that one more week would get her the purse that she wants.

Why not? Consensual sex amongst consenting adults who have agreed to a bargain. Others should keep their noses and judgmental opinions out of it.

Agreed 100%, but no doubt the "exploitation" crowd would think badly of you for saying it (whilst conveniently forgetting that most of their clothes, amongst other things, are made in Chinese sweatshops)

Perhaps... my wife understands Russian and would disagree from what she's overheard. But yes - it's another story,

Exactly why I said it's more honest than most. Maybe not the most honest profession, but much more honest and upfront than (and more realistic expectations) than most of the 'civiilian' women on the island (and some of my ex-girlfriends, that's for sure)!

You mean, expecting to be paid for consensual sex make these women more realistic than the rest of the civilian women? 8-)

Yes, zzm9980 made a very dangerous statement. Now everybody wonders if this is about money, performance or maybe something else.

They even have a wikipedia article for it... :cool: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitution_in_Singapore

Hahaha, your wife should have good club expertise as I have to beat my argument.

Sorry, I was vague. I was implying that those girls eventually cost more for the guy :) The cost of handbags, necklaces/trinkets, fancy dinners, clubs, eventually the 5 Cs...

edit: And yes, I'm sure everyone here is going to point out "not every girl here is like that". I know that, we all know that. It was a stereotype, but you'll be lying to yourself if you try to claim isn't fairly deserved and earned :)
