    At least he didn't ruin his career for nothing, you listening Mr Clinton? :p

    If you'd like a serious discussion about Mr Spitzer's indiscretions, please head over to this thread in PRSI :)

    No need to bash Lewinski's sex appeal. She also wasn't a prostitute.

    I almost linked to that in my first post. That thread is obviously politically charged (hence it's location in PRSI), I was hoping this could stay more light hearted. If it goes south (read: political) I'll move/merge/close. :)

    Well good luck with that, since this is a political story. It is over here, anyhow.

    Thanks for your good wishes, I'm sure the PRSI thread will be more to your tastes - which I have now clearly linked in my first post. We do our best.

    Kind of a sh*tty think to say about a fellow human, eh edsign? Seriously, to each their own. At least Lewinsky wasn't a prostitute.

    what i think is worse is that the photos are all over the place now, and will have repercussions for this person's life. but thats another topic...

    I think the repercussions in Spitzer's life will prove to be worse in the long run. I bring that up because they both chose to engage in this type of illegal activity. While I'm not saying we should or shouldn't feel bad for one or both of them, this was both of their choices to the best of my knowledge, and while could be very wrong, I don't see this woman as a victim. At thousands of dollars an hour, I don't think that she is some kind of sex slave. She seems to have made a personal decision regarding her body.

    Sorry to make this more of a political thread than it is intended to be. I am not trying to state any opinions on the legality of prostitition nor am I trying to discuss women's rights or women's choice issues. All of those topics, however, are linked to this discussion.

    P.S. - In the interest of lightening the mood, all of the women on that "emperor's club" site were gorgeous. Too bad they didn't decide to be doctors.

    well i certainly agree that they both made a choice and agreed that it has its repercussions. what bothers me is that she is paying the wrong repercussions for her choice. she's getting national headline exposure with her picture plastered on the front of papers and news sites. if she had been arrested for her choice and prosecuted as per the norm then, yes i'd agree thats appropriate according to the current laws. thats all that bothers me. its not as if she choose to have him as a client afaik.

    /shrug, nitpicking sure, but oh well...

    carry on.

    Let me bring this thread back to where its was supposed to go...

    As I said in the PRSI thread,

    She'd get it, but I don't think it was worth $3,300/hr (or £5) or whatever the hell he spent.

    Hey e, don't you think you should've named this thread Spitzer's Camel Toe?

    :D :p

    She is pretty damn hot, I can see why you'd be tempted, but for $3000/hour I dunno.

    She is attractive but nothing really special. Honestly IMO I feel I have dated women as good or better looking than her. I mean, I wouldn't kick her out of bed. Heck, I may even make her breakfast!:p (provided I just didn't blow >$3,000 on sex)... pun intended

    So the tongue out smiley makes everything ok? Geez, that could be abused, couldn't it?

    edesignuk has patriarchal attitudes towards women! :p:p

    (I put two in, just in case)

    Repercussions? She'll make a fortune off of this- just like Lewinsky.. They gave her a show on HBO for crying out loud!! She'll be fine, her song is all over the internet as a result of this.. If she plays her cards right she'll be set for life- if she doesn't she'll be on a bunch of reality shows and still make a good living..

    And hey, before anyone tries to give me the moral high ground treatment for saying "if she plays her cards right", lets just remember that we are talking about a ho here- a high rent, pretty hot ho, but she's still a ho.. I'm sure her swarmy lawyers already have her meeting with financial advisors so she can strike while the irons hot.. Such is the life she chose..

    She looks rather well used for a 22 year old
    and the fake boobs are doing much to help her rent per hour image.
    no thanks even if I swung that way.
