This is a post by Leroy Joseph on the post “The Prostitute Who (Almost) Saved My Relationship“.
I hired a prostitute once in my life. I was in my 2nd marriage and I had really “settled,” I was not in love with the woman, I will still in love with my former fiancee who I have written about a fair bit in replies to other articles, but that is another story. I got married to this woman because she wanted to and I just more or less went along with it. Our sex life was sort of okay at times, but she didn’t set off any fireworks for me. So one night on a business trip, I hired a prostitute . I was feeling horny and more than a little curious about what it would be like to hire a beautiful woman for sex.
She came to my hotel room, we negotiated and then I paid her. I got undressed and as soon as we started, I went totally limp. The woman patiently tried for half an hour to arouse me again without any success. Then she just sort of shrugged, said “Sorry,” got her things together and left. I was left lying there feeling frustrated and like a failure. I had also just wasted a good sum of money. And I had just had an incredibly beautiful woman willing to satisfy me, but couldn’t get it up. Bummer.
Later, when I thought about it, I realized that I have never been able to screw on demand. Most of my one night stands ended with the same result. A lot of my friends seemed to have no problem screwing anything that walked. Why was I different? Well, I don’t have to be in love with someone to have great sex with them, but I do have to feel comfortable and safe with them.
I also have to be reasonably sober; like most men, too much alcohol for me is not an aphrodisiac, quite the opposite. So even though at times I have wanted to behave like a male slut, something in my subconscious or body does not allow me to go there. There are advantages to this condition though; four of my friends all had some fun one night with a girl and then all got gonorrhea. I have never had that problem.
