What incels want is extremely limited and specific: they want to be able to have sex on demand with young, beautiful women. They believe that this is a natural right. Lately I have been thinking about one of the first things that I ever wrote for the Internet: a series of interviews with adult virgins , published by the Hairpin. I knew my first subject personally, and, after I interviewed her, I put out an open call. To my surprise, messages came rolling in. Some of the people I talked to were virgins by choice.
When people think of a prostitute they generally visualise a woman in a short skirt and fishnet stockings walking the street, getting into strangers cars. They also think that the women who do this kind of work are uneducated, from low socioeconomic backgrounds, drugs addicts — the list goes on. People also think that the only type of clients who see prostitutes are dirty, unattractive, seedy old men. Well, let me shatter any preconceptions you may have and fill you in on the truth. I came from a middle class family and I was educated at private schools.
I can assure you this is a damn sight cheaper than wining and dining a woman, like men usually do. I would have to spend hours on all the bullshit you have to talk. This is good value.
Most probably it was the come-hither blonde wig I was wearing on Saturday night explanation: I was asked to represent Finland at a Eurovision Song Contest party which started me thinking about how I would feel if my husband was found out after spending precious time and energetic effort with a tart. It would be a shock, and I would worry about diseases and things, but I think or thought then I would mind less than if I discovered he'd had a one-night stand with a woman he fancied or couldn't resist because he was drunk. Worst of all, of course, would be that searing experience of finding out that your bloke has a long-term lover. I blurted out a little too confidently to my husband that Angus Deayton's nocturnal adventures with a sex worker didn't feel as grave or wrong as they might have done long, long ago when we were too ready to be judgmental.
