    As for my dh, no I would not be okay with it. We're in a monogamous marriage. If I met him while he was doing it, I wouldn't judge him.

    As for anyone else I know, the same would apply to if it were my children.




    As I said earlier, maybe different experiences? I'm at an age where it's the 'prime' time to be in the industry, so I know people that are or have been in the industry to varying degree. They're all strong young women and have used it to get good financial security at a young age - to pay for uni or the time needed to study, a house deposit, opening a business (outside of the sex industry). None have ended up in a life of drugs.
    Of those that I know enough to have a conversation about it, there are no regrets and it's something they would do again with hindsight.
    That's great for them. Still not something i would want for any of my kids. I hope they never find themselves in a situation where that is the only option for paying for their education. Anyone can open their legs. I just don't see is as something I'd want for them.

    I think they originally met on a sugar daddy website.

    Would you want your children involved in this? Would you want your spouse making a quick extra buck doing this? Your mum? Your dad? Would you be happy he is being a sugar daddy?

    It's always fine with some people until it's in their back yard. Personally I could NEVER pay someone to have sex with me/ hang out with me.
    I hope by the time my children grow up the industry will be considered less 'dirty' and that there will be fair legislation in order to keep the industry safe and get rid of the dodgy pimps/brothels. As long as they are doing it for the right reasons I will support them.

    My mum makes her own decisions. If she wants to do this then its ger choice.

    I am in a monogamous relationship with my DH. If our relationship was open and we agreed to it - then again I do not see any issue.

    If my dad did this - also his decision. Why should it affect me?

    If you would never pay for sex it is your decision. It does not mean it is 'wrong' if someone else does.

    I'd never want my children to feel like it's their only option either.

    Just to clarify there are many things I wouldn't want for my kids. I hope they never have to have an abortion. I hope they're never homeless. It doesn't mean I would abandon them if it happened (I'll always support them). I just struggle with the idea that 2 consenting adults = it's all ok. Not every situation is ok and like I said before the power imbalance brought about by age and financial dependence on the relationship would worry me if one of my girls found themselves in this situation.
