Women sell sex to the media – is it wrong?

Ashley Dupré was outed by the New York Times in 2008 because she had done a session with Eliot Spitzer – remember him?! (A ridiculously arrogant American politician, feel free to Google him.) This week, she spoke out about the Tiger Woods scandal and lambasted the golf pro’s concubines for abusing their access to the media. (Cashing in on sex with a married celeb, after the fact.)

My take on this in today’s Daily Beast: “Now that prostitution is seen as a labor issue rather than a moral one, Ashley is emerging as a gritty modern ethicist. Tiger, for reasons we can only begin to analyze, isn’t turned on by safety and ethics, and who can blame him? Hanging out with sex workers isn’t risky enough, from an emotional perspective—and professionals are unlikely to idolize him.”
