You're here, you're whores, get used to it

IMAGE 1 OF 1
Whore’s kind of a loaded word, isn’t it? And considering how versatile and bandied about it is, it’s sort of become the de facto term of degradation when launching the first salvo in a bitch fight. Stupid whore, dirty whore, cheap whore, whorey whore . . . See what I mean?

The sad thing is, in a completely logical world, whore wouldn’t even be all that degrading. If the worst thing you can say about a person is that he or she really likes sex, you probably don’t have much of a leg to stand on. Humans are genetically programmed to like sex, so at this point, calling someone a whore is like calling someone fat: you’re begrudging someone for indulging because you’re on a diet. La-di-dah. Does your crotch hurt from riding the high horse so often?

What’s that? Tie my screed into something that has to do with porn already, you say? Well, might as well. Brent Corrigan — or Sean Paul Lockhart, or whatever he’s calling himself these days, now that he’s trying to break into mainstream acting — allegedly placed an ad on Rentboy recently, and I use the term “allegedly” in the loosest sense possible: as soon as the ad was discovered, Brent/Sean denied its veracity, stating that it was a fake. The director of Rentboy later revealed that the ad was paid for using Brent/Sean’s credit card, and the mailing address checked out with his credit card company. Whoops.

Now, let’s get one thing clear: nothing he did was inherently wrong — up until he started trying to deny it. The guy’s gotta put food on the table, and if that means renting, more power to him. Just wear a condom. Trying to deny he placed the ad, on the other hand, was pretty shitty. It’s far better to be a whore than a hypocrite, but being both just makes the rest of us whores look bad.

Embracing your sex life is an integral part of being a well-adjusted adult. Whether you have a lot of sex or no sex, free sex or paid sex, gay sex or straight sex, it doesn’t matter what you do but how you do it. If you happen to be whoring with a little integrity, then there’s nothing anyone can say about you. But if you’re angling for those Rentboy dollars while trying to pretend you are but a demure little angel, don’t be surprised when people ask you to refrain from throwing rocks in your glass house.

I’m not trying to go down to where you work and slap the dicks out of your mouth; I just think if you’re going to suck them, you might as well suck them with a little pride. Whether it’s a blowjob, a rimjob or even a handjob, as long as you do your job with respect for yourself and others, then whore it loud and whore it proud.

privacy
To be honest I am more concerned that the writer apparently thinks it is his job to publish in xtra another persons decision to be private about what they (he/ she) chooses to do in 'the bedroom' or for that matter someone elses. Why is it anyone's business other then of course this magazine's to sell more papers. I find it it more trashy to demand that someone should not 'embrace',, but 'be forced' by a store, a website, or for that matter the writer, into publishing what is their own discretion. That last word might be something the writer has little use for, but many people do and it isn't fair to assume it is out of shame. Some people like their privacy and don't want to be porn/ hustler/ sex industry poster boys regardless of their feelings about the industry or sex for that matter.
A sex business may not respect your privacy
Rufus raises an important point. The article states that the management of rentboy.com, the escort website, revealed that Brent Corrigan's ad on rentboy.com was paid for using Brent Corrigan's credit card, and the mailing address checked out with his credit card company. rentboy.com obviously has no respect for the privacy of the sex workers or the sex customers who use the website. If you use the website, they will obviously not hesistate to reveal your personal information and involve you in public scandal. Of course, if you use the services of a sex worker or a sex business like a bathhouse or a sex store like Priape, there is no guarantee that they will respect your privacy. Sex workers have revealed the identity of their customers to the media (e.g., Pastor Ted Haggard was outed by a male ecort - see http://www.denverpost.com/ci_4611420) and sex stores have discussed their customers' purchases with the media (e.g., Priape discussed with Xtra what a closeted US politician may have bought at their store - see http://www.xtra.ca/public/National/Priape_purchase_outs_familyvalues_Mississippi_mayor-11254.aspx).
The REAL ISSUE
here is that the Director (who is conveniently not named) of RENTBOY so freely and maliciously "revealed" such personal information of a customer. If this isn't a cause to shut the fucking thing down I don't know what is? Who's really the whore?
Limits
Brent Corrigan does have some limits on the type of sex work he will do. While he initially performed in bareback porn films, he now only performs in condom porn films.
trash
Sean/Brent has so many issues about stretching the truth that nothing surprises me. He's got a sick soul and not sure why he'd not want people to think he's an escort, he'll do anything ANYTHING for a few bucks.
It is odd
When Brent Corrigan performs in gay porn films, he's getting paid to have sex. Pornography is a form of prostitution. So, it's odd that Corrigan would deny having an escort ad. Unless, in his mind, it's cool to get paid for having sex with other handsome, muscular young guys in a porn film, but not cool to let some ugly, fat, old troll have sex with you in return for money.
