Why You Should Avoid Other Expats While Living Abroad

AlcoholismThis is just one of my expat horror stories and may it serve as a shining example of the ways that familiarity can breed contempt while living abroad.

I’ve been living in China for last five years now, teaching English while writing books on the side. To the people I’ve recommended a similar lifestyle, I’ve told them to generally steer clear of other expats. I’m sure some might’ve thought, “But what does he mean ‘don’t interact with other foreigners?’ Who else am I supposed to hang out with, drink with, and bitch about China with?”

Unless you’re living in Shanghai or Beijing, expat communities can feel like a bit of a vacuum where it can be difficult to get away from the less than desirable members of the community. Not only can it be a turn-off to hear the same complaints about China that you’ve heard a million times before, their personal issues can be powerful vortexes that suck you in. And if you’re anywhere in their vicinity when shit goes south, you may be left to pick up the bill.

~ ~ ~

The University I was working at held a special Christmas dinner in 2012 for the foreign teachers. One of the teachers there (let’s call him Jim) had been making some significant problems for me since I’d come to China. Not only did this individual have a serious problem with alcohol, but he was also obsessed with scoring a girlfriend, as I believe someone might’ve told him that Chinese women will occasionally go for morbidly obese Western men. He was also worried that all of the other foreign friends he had would get Chinese girlfriends and he would be left behind.

As an unfortunate side-effect of his attempt to pursue women, he ended up introducing me to a few that took a shine to me. It wasn’t really my fault, but he ended up perceiving that my purpose in the world was to undermine his female engagements and resented me for it. He had some really strange ideas about the way the mating game should be played. He expressed the view that men with higher sexual market value should restrain themselves to allow the lower value males a shot. By his definition, this meant that if a man and a woman liked each other, the man was supposed to back off if Jim called dibs. This put us on bad terms for a while.

Jim wasn’t a complete asshole. He was actually an academic who spoke pretty competent Mandarin. He was also surprisingly friendly while sober and most people liked him.

At first, I thought it was because he was Mormon that he’d never known the ways of alcohol before. I thought that perhaps because of the religious intolerance at home, he was unable to gauge his drunkenness and couldn’t help but go off the deep end every time he imbibed. I later found out that his alcoholism has actually been a recurring hurricane in his life, restricted only by the influence of his friends and family. When he was back home, he didn’t dare swallow a drop.

After the Christmas party of ‘12, I had invited a couple of other teachers over to my place to have some drinks in my room. We were already buzzed from before, but we felt the need to carry on drinking a little more. One of the things that is notable here was that I didn’t usually have people over. Wasn’t something I was actively avoiding, I just prefer solitude most of the time.

So after inviting those two other teachers over to have some whiskey, the Mormon alcoholic knocks on my door. I didn’t invite him, but Jim must have heard the other two teachers go to my room, so he felt inclined to stick his nose in. That was kind of his shtick, imposing himself on others. I should’ve just told him to fuck off right then, but because I didn’t want to put us on bad terms again, I allowed him to stop in. So, after he set a couple of bottles of booze on my table, he took a seat in a chair and promptly passed out like a fat asshole.

We kind of laughed it off at the time and continued chatting while he slept there; he was so overweight he could sleep sitting upright. But then he started vomiting. It was the most repulsive, unconscious vomiting I’d ever seen. He kind of just leaned his head back and started expelling all of the different things he’d eaten that evening in a viscous stream of undigested food. We were still laughing while it happened because we recognized some of the content:

“Oh yeah, is that the noodles we had before?”

“I think so. That spicy beef dish was delicious.”

Then, the vomit landed on the floor and I started to get really pissed off. Remember how I rarely had anyone over? Jim continued hurling all over himself, and it started to look like he wasn’t going to stop. I could only marvel at the freakishly large capacity of his stomach, expelling all kinds of colorful shit.

So, my two guests decide that they’d better take him back to his room before he made any more of a mess. They tried to get his arms over their shoulders, but with his massive belly, his weight was impossible to control. Once they’d lifted him out of his seat, he slipped past both of them and landed face-first on my glass coffee table. It shattered into a million pieces. One of the larger shards flipped up when he fell with razor-sharp edge.

I knew the worst had occurred when I heard my guests curse.

“Oh shit, oh shit.”

I saw a puddle of blood spreading underneath him, and it wasn’t until they moved him that I saw the gash through the side of his face, up through his scalp. He started bleeding everywhere. Luckily, one of my guests had experience dealing with one of those kinds of situations because at that point, my anger had reverted to a bit of a drunken panic. I tried to keep the wound on Jim’s head closed and applied pressure while my guests left to get help and find a taxi to take him to a hospital.

Fast-forward to the end of the night; my guests returned from escorting Jim to medical care. I had Jim’s blood up to my elbows, and my floor was covered with blood, vomit, broken glass. I was so drunk and so angry that I was shouting and felt like smashing everything. I was up until 4 AM drunkenly mopping and sweeping everything up. I found little bits of that glass coffee table around my apartment for years to come.

Jim got stitches in his face at the Chinese hospital, and they were so thick that his gash looked like the grip of a football. Despite breaking down into tears once he was visited by other coworkers, out of shame or embarrassment, it didn’t break him of his drinking habit. He was back on the sauce and behaving badly again in no time. On top of his drunkenness, he was back to resenting me for not visiting him while he was in the hospital. He had no idea that I was the one that had taken care of him the night of his disaster, and I was left with the burden of cleaning up his fucking mess. Afterwards, he continued to be a ticking time bomb, in danger of embarrassing or upsetting the lives of anyone unlucky enough to be in his vicinity.

Eventually, Jim’s incompetence got the best of him and he was administered the boot from the university. It was said that he was often showing up late for classes, often completely unengaged when it came time for him to teach, and sometimes noticeably intoxicated. What a shame.

It’s startling for me to think that such educated people might still fuck up so badly as to get fired from a Chinese university, when often the requirements are no more than to have a degree and a pulse.

So while this is strictly anecdotal, and you might not have the same experiences I’ve had, at least you will understand why I think that avoiding expats while abroad is typically in your best interest. Alcohol and aimlessness tends to be pretty prevalent among Chinese expats, and out of all the problems I’ve ever had while living in China, very few were a result of my interactions with the natives. Other expats I’ve asked have often said the same.

    I would say thanks for the entertaining story but that feels kind of rude without expressing some remorse for you! I guess it turned out okay though, in the end.

    I’m an American ex-pat living in the Balkans but I have ethnic, familial, and citizenship ties here so things are a bit different than just going out there and living alone. Amazingly still was able to find an SJW-type chick here who after 2 weeks of talking debted me because of a Donald Trump post. I wrote up a rant about that and other experiences that I’ll probably drop in one of the comments on this blog some time. Really am happy that I found this blog though!

    Interesting sad story..but not sure that the individual encounter should be cause to avoid all expats.

  • Americans are justifiably detested throughout most of the world, especially older, bitter, “beta”, entitled, obnoxious ones. However, they’re everywhere so good luck avoiding them. All that said, I can offer the opposite perspective of living abroad with not much in the way of a support system going very badly. There are places in the Third World which require a small army in order to merely hold onto one’s real estate. I went there with the wrong man, who given that he was a different variety of ex-pat, I suppose confirms this article from another angle.

    If there is any community in the world that believes that it would benefit from my presence, I’m all ears. Naturally, I’d be prepared to contribute professionally, menially, and financially, but it had better be all three otherwise I’m likely to turn into an annoying bitchy older American woman. Surely there must be a place…? Surely there must be…

    • Manuel ✓Straight, Cis-gender

      Sounds like an interesting story. Would you like to guest post it?

      • Thanks for the offer. I allude to my experiences in Venezuela throughout my blog. However, they are either going to be a book one day or are going to die a deserved death. It doesn’t much serve my mission to continuously return to the miserable and terrifying experiences of my marriage. I like men! I just picked the wrong one–or rather he picked me–and then we moved to the wrong country. However, I’ve been to many other places.

        I think that at my age, if I’m all on my lonesome, I ought to return to one of the places where I have some experience, like Spain or Hong Kong or Germany or Costa Rica, for instance. Unless of course I am invited some place, as fanciful as that may sound, such as to contribute to a farm, teach English, or engage in some sort of writing or scientific pursuit.

        In the end, however, the man matters to me more than the country, and chances are, whoever he is, he’s another weird one, and thereby not representative of wherever he is from. This time, it would be nice if he is not a criminal, or at least not interested in predating upon me except in those ways in which I like to be predated upon.

          • “Little goat girl”. It’s a joke. I’m not little nor a “girl” except in the manner that all females are. It’s a bastardized Latin-Russo word that I made up because I knew that I would be the only Caprizchka. I’m neither Latin nor Russian but nobody has tried to beat me up for appropriating it.

      “Americans are justifiably detested throughout most of the world”

      This hasn’t been my experience at all. Have you actually spent any time overseas? I’ve spent several years living overseas in EE, WE, Latin America, and the Caribbean and, much like Roosh, I’ve never been anywhere where being American wasn’t an overall plus. Never had anyone treat me badly for being American, aside from a few bitter, low SMV local guys here and there who get jealous about the attention I get from the ladies.

      This story seemed more about avoiding fat, obnoxious drunks than about avoiding Americans per se.

      • It would seem that you’ve selectively read my comment.

        • bucky

          How so?

          • Would you like for me to read it along with you and help you sound out the long words?

          • bucky

            Might be entertaining, I guess.

            Guys, don’t listen to this Caprizchka girl. She’s doesn’t know what she’s talking about. You’ll do fine overseas. Just don’t be loud and obnoxious, and try to learn at least some of the language. If you try to avoid being fat, that can’t hurt either.

          • Agreeing with the advice to learn the language and otherwise not putting words in other people’s mouths. Very important.

          • bucky

            If you’re suggesting that I’m misunderstanding some part of “Americans are justifiably detested throughout most of the world” can you explain which words in that rather simple and, in my experience, completely false statement I’m misunderstanding? Like I said before you decided to hamster your way out of a simple reply, this has never been my experience as an American living and traveling overseas, although I’ve heard similar opinions from guys who’ve never traveled much or learned another language, which is why I suspect that you may fall into that category. It’s like you’re saying “The sky is green” and then getting snarky when I point out that I have a lot of experience looking at the sky and it’s always appeared blue to me.

          • After you read that sentence, you just stopped reading. There’s no reason for me to engage further.

          • bucky

            Also not true, but OK. Would be interesting if you could point out where you qualify your statement about this supposed hatred for Americans you’ve encountered. Your writing is a little murky and difficult to follow so maybe it’s there, although I don’t see it.

          • I doubt that throwing more words at you will solve the problem you are having with those already presented. By the way, please tell me what countries you are planning to visit and when so that I can avoid guilt by association.

          • bucky

            You could, you know, try. You’ve gone to some pretty impressive lengths to avoid my original question, rather than just explaining what you meant or admitting that you’re wrong.

            Btw, I’m planning on visiting every country in the world, except North Korea, Somalia, and rural Pakistan.

          • I could not justify my position by mere words better than you have already by example.

          • bucky

            Yes, I have little doubt that you cannot justify your position, whatever it was. Even you seem unclear on what you’re trying to say, beyond being snarky.

          • I was wrong. You are right. Americans are universally loved everywhere they go. Especially you.

          • misanthropytoday

            This bitch is annoying as hell

      • Westray

        I’m with Bucky on this. I am a twenty year expat in 7 different countries. I’m very much the All-American boy type, now wizened. It hardly matters. I’m still a golden boy of sorts and a well-behaved American who shows a legitimate interest in his host country is treated like GOLD. Talk to a Palestinian, Ghanain, whoever. Doesn’t matter. If you’re American and you respect them they will ALWAYS like you. The only people who didn’t seem to like me upon introduction were fellow Anglos: Danish and Irish blondies who I met in Brazil. But I don’t live in Anglo nations anyway. Most people are so predisposed to expecting that Americans will be assholes that if you’re nice, they will quickly change their tune and massively overrate you.

        • bucky

          I haven’t even run into the people seemingly expecting me to be a dick that you mention. It seems like people abroad expect Americans to be fat, ignorant, poorly dressed, kind of clueless, and able to speak only English, but they also seem to perceive us as friendly and generous and seem basically interested in the US. I’d say the English and the Russians are more truly detested in most places I’ve lived and traveled, for example.

          As you say, the exception seems to be other Anglos, especially the Brits. Also, I’ve gotten a cold reception from Germans before, until I break out my broken German on them. That usually seems to win them over.

          • Westray

            You don’t really ‘run into them’ because if you behave well, that preset opinion never can come out. I’ve had a few people tell me that they’d never known an American before and expected bad things because of what they’d heard. Later on they admit to that and were surprised that I was so different.

            But there’s the general bad rep worldwide for Americans but it doesn’t always play out. I’ve seen terrible Americans. I’m not saying there aren’t. I’m just saying that if you’re American and act right, you will get quite a nice reception out in the world 99 times out of a 100. We’re on the same page, I’m not arguing with you at all.

            Honestly, Americans are quite well behaved and well-regarded overall. The whole “Ugly American” thing is about 30-40 years out of date.

            The worst assholes worldwide are British females.

  • I knew people who lived in Japan simply because it was easier to be an alcoholic there. You can get grog from the 7-11 at all hours, drink on the train, and if you pass out no one will nick your stuff.
    There’s one guy I know who simply works until he has too many hungover no-shows, is asked to leave, and then picks up another job and repeats.
    When overseas it’s tempting to hang out with fellow Westerners because they’re Westerners. As at home, you need to carefully choose who you hang out with.

      “There’s one guy I know who simply works until he has too many hungover no-shows, is asked to leave, and then picks up another job and repeats.”

      That’s fucked, but I can see how Japan would attract the drinkers. In China, you can’t just swing from one job to the next without huge administrative hassle. Japan doesn’t exercise the same degree of domineering control over the foreign help. Got fired? Move on to the next.

    Are Prostitutes Better Than Normal Women?

    A Short Essay by John Doe

    Is it cheaper to have sex with normal women than with prostitutes? No, and here is why.

    When you have sex with a normal girl, it’s by no means “free”. You have to take her out to dinner, buy her drinks, and you might have to go on two or even three dates before you will have sex with her. If you add up the total costs of these three dates, it would be approxiately around 400 dollars.

    Now let’s look at the cost of the average high quality prostitute. You can bang a prostitute for 2 hours for 250 dollars.

    What are the benefits of using prostitutes instead of dating normal women?

    1. The average prostitute is far hotter than the average normal woman you can date.

    2. YOU get to do the choosing, and the power of choice is in YOUR hands, instead of in the woman’s hands

    3. With a prostitute, you have sex with her and that’s it. No emotional drama, no mind games, no bullshit, like there is with normal women.

    4. You don’t have to waste hours of your valuable time that you could otherwise spend on making money, taking women out on dates or trying to pick up women in bars and clubs. No, instead you pay a prostitute for one or two hours of her time, have sex with her, and leave.

    5. You choose WHEN you want to have sex. So let’s say you’re a busy businessman, instead of wasting 5 hours at a bar or on a date, instead you’d spend only one or two hours with a prostitute, and that at your convience too. YOU are the one who chooses WHEN, and so you save a LOT of time.

    6. Prostites are DEFINITELY cheaper than getting married. Overall, through a 10 year marriage and divorce, you’d end up spending at least 250,000 dollars. Now let’s take that number and divide it by 250 dollars, which is the average price of a high quality prostitute in a Western country. That is sex with 1000 different high quality prostitutes. Now if you talk to any married man, who is HONEST, he will admit that sex with the wife after the first 6 months or year starts to get boring. And this is why people in long term relationships barely have sex, because it’s BORING having sex with the same person time after time. Variety is the spice of life! You could have sex with 1000 different women for the same price it would cost to marry one woman and have sex with her. And considering how unstable most western women are nowadays, the chance of divorce is around 60%, with the woman initiating the divorce 90% of the time. You are likely to lose at least 50% of your assets and savings in a divorce, and so marriage to a western woman may end up costing you up to 500,000 dollars or even a million dollars, once you add in the divorce costs and long term child payment and alimony costs.

    So let’s take that number, one million dollars, and divide it by 250. That’s 4000 DIFFERENT women you could pay to have sex with, instead of marrying one woman who will just end up turning into a bitch and divorcing you anyway. So it’s your choice guys. Would you rather marry one woman, who will get bored of sex after 6 months, and end up stealing all your assets and savings in divorce, or would you rather have sex with 4000 different beautiful women for the same price?

    Another very relevant point is that the world of modern dating has become quite risky. Most women see nothing wrong with making a false rape accusation against a man. Most rape cases are fake and are done out of a motive of REVENGE by the woman. Did you break up with your girlfriend? Watch out, she might make a false rape accusation against you just to get revenge. Did you cheat on your girl with another girl? Watch out, she might make a false rape accusation just to get revenge on you. Forgot to tell your girlfriend “happy birthday”? Watch out, she might make a false rape accusation against you in order to get revenge on you. At least 90% of rape cases are FALSE, the sex was CONSENSUAL and the woman later changed her mind AFTER the act and decided “oh it was rape”. LOL. And this is why the police no longer take rape cases seriously, because literally 90% of women who claim to have been raped are LYING!

    So that is another HUGE benefit of prostitues. A prostitute won’t make a false rape accusation against you.

    What’s another GREAT reason that men choose to use prostitutes? Because by paying for sex, they can have sex with a MUCH hotter quality of woman than they would normally. For example, if we rate women on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of beauty. The average guy will be able to pick up and have sex with a 4 or a 5 from a bar, a club, or Tinder. Meanwhile, if the same man paid for sex with a high quality prostitute for $250 dollars (about the same amount of money he would spend picking up a 4 or 5 from a bar, club, or Tinder), the prostitute he would have sex with would be an 8 or 9 on the beauty scale. So for the same amount of money, he can have sex with a much hotter woman, and with much less effort too. Think about all the effort you have to put in to go to a bar or club. You have to buy good clothes, you have to spend lots of money on drinks and food, and also have to spend a lot of money on making sure your apartment is cool and stylish so the girl will feel comfortable there. So unless you’re a man who was blessed with the looks of Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise and have women chasing after you, the easiest and cheapest option for most men to have sex with the hottest quality of women is to simply PAY for sex with a hot prostitute. One guy was asked why he paid to have sex with prostitutes and his reply was “If I’m being brutally honest, the hottest women I’ve ever had sex with have been prostitutes … I would never be able to have sex with women who are ridiculously hot unless they were prostitutes.” I can also personally testify to this point. The types of chicks I was getting from Tinder were mostly fat or at best mildly hot, I would have rated them between a 3 and a 6 on the attraction scale. Then the first time I went to a prostitute, I was blown away with the options and the QUALITY too. Here were super hot girls who I could bang for such a cheap price. Needless to say, I gave up on dating and ONLY bang prostitutes now. I’m a much happier and peaceful person as a result.

    Another couple of reasons that men gave as to why they choose to have sex with prostitutes are:

    “Getting a prostitute is so easy: no strings attached, you can choose the woman you want before you purchase, then they arrive at your door. Couldn’t be easier.”

    I can also testify to this. Getting a normal girl to have sex is a real pain in the ass and involves so much struggle, drama, and mind games. Then of course after you have sex with her, you have to deal with her stalking you, calling you so many times, and with her unrealistic expectation that you are going to have a committed and exclusively relationship with her. All that compared with the EASE of banging a hot prostitute, and the choice is simple. I chose to not waste time trying to date women anymore and only bang hot prostitutes now.

    “We want to have sex without all the bullshit of pretending to be really interested in a girl. When you pay for sex, you don’t have to swap numbers at the end when you know you won’t call. You pay, have sex, she leaves. Everyone’s happy.”

    This goes along with the above point. With normal women and dating, you have to PRETEND to care about her and PRETEND to be interested in her, when in reality all you want is to have sex with her. With a prostitute, there is no pretensions and that really is a beautiful thing because ultimately then sex becomes about the raw physical act as well as the pure attractiveness of the woman, and thus you are able to enjoy sex a lot more.

    Lastly, let’s touch on the issue of legalization. On average surveys, 70 percent of men said they would vote to legalize prostitution, meanwhile 60 percent of women said they would vote to keep prostitution illegal. Now it’s pretty obvious why women want to keep prostitution illegal. Women use sex as a weapon to control men. So it would disrupt the economics of women’s control over sex if prostitution was legalized, because then MEN would have control over WHO they want to have sex with and WHEN. Forget all those arguments about morality, the REAL reason women want to keep prostitution illegal is so that they can CONTINUE to control men with sex. In effect, women are like a mafia that is desperate to keep control of the sexual marketplace. If prostitution was legal, men would be a lot less inclined to put up with women’s bullshit just to get sex from them, when they can go pay for sex from a much more attractive woman and without all the hassles and drama that dating and normal women bring.

    What about STDs some of you might say? Well the whole STD scare is mostly a MYTH that has been blown way out of proportion by feminists and conservative religious leaders in order to scare men away from having sex. In reality, the rate of transmission of AIDS is 1 out of 700 during heterosexual sex. That is, if a man had penis to vagina intercourse with an AIDS-infected woman, it would take 700 times on average before he would contract it. The only way people get AIDS is through using needles to inject drugs, or having anal sex, especially with homosexuals. So the whole AIDS thing is a huge scare, a MYTH, that has been blown way out of proportion.

    What about Herpes? Well studies show that 80% of the US population already has Herpes in one of it’s forms, so that is not really an issue.

    The only other STD that you would have to worry about is Chlamydia, and it can be easily cured within 3 days with antibiotics.

    Now, that is UNPROTECTED sex. If you are using condoms to have sex with, then the chances of getting any of these STDs becomes less than zero. And that includes oral sex as well. Most prostitutes will insist that you always use a condom, even during oral sex. So as long as you are using condoms, then STDs are nothing you should even remotely worry about.

    So what are some of the main reasons why prostitution should be legalized?

    1. If prostitution was legal, it would reduce the STD transmission rate by about 50% amongst prostitutes.

    2. If prostitution was legal, it would reduce rape by at least 150%.

    Many studies have shown that legal prostitution reduces rape, sexual assault, and other sex crimes by a lot. The same studies have shown that legal prostitution reduces the STD rate amongst the general population by about 50%.

    3. The real number of human trafficking victims in the prostitution industry is actually less than 5%. But if prostitution was fully legal, the tiny number of women who are forced into prostitution involuntarily would be able to go to the poliec to get help and escape from their pimps. Keeping prostitution illegal hurts prostitutes the most, so it’s funny how feminists want to keep prostitution illegal and yet at the same time claim they care about women’s health and women’s rights. Feminism is nothing but the biggest pile of bullshit hypocrisy the world has ever seen.

    4. Feminists say “my body, my choice”. So if 95% of prostitutes are VOLUNTARILY engaging in prostitution, then why should those women have the RIGHT to choose what to do with their own bodies, even if that includes trading sex for money? What right does the government or anyone else have to tell two consenting adults that they cannot exchange money for sex?

    5. It would save a lot of money and resources from our police and government. Tens of millions of dollars a year are wasted by our police and government arresting and putting prostitutes in jail. If prostitution was LEGAL, on the other hand, and taxed and regulated, it would bring in tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars a year in tax revenue for our government, as well as freeing up valuable police time for REAL crimes like rape, theft, murder, assault, etc.

    6. If prostitution was legal, prostitutes would have legal rights and would not longer get taken advantage of by pimps and other shady figures, including corrupt police officers. Yes, the police also contribute to the oppression of prostitutes because there are many corrupt police officers out there who blackmail and extort prostitutes for money and/or sexual favors. If prostitution was legal, all of this would end and prostitutes would finally have legal rights.

    7. Prostitution is the world’s oldest profession. It is NEVER going to stop no matter how much the police or government tries to stop it. There are ALWAYS going to be men who are willing to pay money for sex, and there are ALWAYS going to be women who are willing to give sex to men for money. Prostitution has also been an integral part of many cultures and thus trying to stop it is literally impossible. And why should it be stopped? No one has the right to tell two consenting adults that they cannot exchange money for sex. So rather than waste time trying to stop it, just legalize it and tax it, the same way we do with cigarettes, alcohol, and now marijuana.

    All in all, I believe in personal freedom. I believe that no one has the right to force their own sense of morality onto others. In some very ancient cultures, prostitutes were actually given very high status in society and considered as spiritual people who could heal men of their problems through sex. That was thousands of years ago though, before self-righteous modern western religions were invented and started violently forcing their concepts of morality onto people. Funny how societies that were thousands of years old were actually far more advanced than we are in the modern age in terms of sex and prostitutes.

    It took almost a century for people to wake up and legalize marijuana, which is a completely harmless natural plant that hurts no one. In the same way, society and people in general have to EVOLVE and realize that they have no right to force their own sense of morality or control onto others. The modern society is actually a very sexually restrictive society, compared to cultures and civilizations of the past. And it’s this sexual restrictiveness which contributes to so much psychological neurosis, sex crimes, and frustration in general. Is it a coincidence how people in America are so quick to anger and lose their temper, whereas in a place like Thailand where prostitution is legal and accepted, people are very laid back and cool headed? People need to stop seeing sex as such a big thing, and just realize that sex is a normal and acceptable part of life.

    With that said, I believe that I have covered all the points as to why prostitution should be legal and an accepted part of society, and so this essay comes to a close. Please feel free to copy, paste, and distribute this essay as my goal is to influence and educate as many people as possible, the only thing I ask is that you do not change it or edit it in any way whatsoever. Thank you very much

      John Doe- it depends what kind of women you have sex with and who you are. if you are a young man or look young you can have sex with married women who
      are bored after years of marriage or divorced women- of course both should have enough money so they dont rely on you ! thats is a good niche
