1). If you are the type of man that have a high sexual appetite, a prostitute might be better for you because you get immediate gratification. The problem with dating is that not every woman is going to sleep or have sex with you on the first date. I even recall from the canceled CBS reality show “3” in which all of the women even felt uncomfortable kissing on the first date as well as at the end of their first date during the evening hours. Some of them won’t engage in sexual activity with you even on the second, third, fourth, and subsequent dates. Some women feel more comfortable in that they need to get to know someone before actual intimacy. As Donald Trump once said, “you have to be friends first.” It is very apparent that the act of dating may constitute spending more money through a series of dates before the act of sexual intercourse compared to spending money for a one-time event with a prostitute. 2). Dating is very time consuming. The act of going out on several occasions, making conversations of each other’s life, talking about things, spending money on gas, and getting to know each other takes up a considerable amount of time compared to the precise calculation of time spent with a prostitute. Life is very short especially if you are a heterosexual male who might have had a wife that died or someone in the middle-age to elder-age years where your sperm may start to become weaker. Having to wait several months just to have sex may be something that turns you off as time is very precious. In addition, not to sound cliché but there is a saying that “time equals money.” So while you might not actually be spending real money where you could literally take notes of debits and credits on a piece of paper, the amount of time of having to wait may be painful to you both psychologically and physically and so the little time spent with a prostitute is why the prostitute is the better route. Furthermore, the amount of time you spend may be better spent facilitating your act of working especially if you are a workaholic, which would allow you to accumulate more money through that act. 3). The simple act of having to put up with somebody else could be a pain. Choosing the loving relationship route means you are going to have to deal with all the other issues not associated with a discrete relationship with a prostitute. You might end up having to attend therapy and that is a waste of time having to speak to a mental health professional. This could be painful if you are really the type of man that isn’t invested in emotion and feelings, something that apparently according to research, women seem to want, that “emotional bond.” You might have to take care of her if she is sick like with the flu or a cold, do some favors for her, buy her presents during the holidays, and all other stuff. 4). Dating someone means that you are also going to have to deal with in-laws whereas a prostitute, you don’t have to worry about any of that. This one is very self-explanatory so I don’t think I need to elaborate. Let’s just say that some in-laws can be a pain. The music video “It Will Rain” by Bruno Mars can help people understand this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-w3WfgpcGg 5). The benefit of choosing a prostitute equates to a worry-free state of mind when it comes to pregnancy. When you in a committed long-term relationship, there may be this fear that you could get her pregnant. If she is pregnant, you might have to deal with the painful issue of abortion and if she gives birth, you might have to prepare to deal with spending money on child support especially if there divorce in the future. All that wasteful money could just be better spent with a prostitute or even an escort as you can derive pleasure from that, but you won’t be able to obtain immediate gratification with having to constantly pay child support for 18 years. 6). Prostitutes may engage in the kind of sexual activity that your girlfriend or wife might not be comfortable with. This could explain why some men prefer prostitutes and I believe there was even a TV talk show that had guests of men saying this. Contrary to the lovely-duckly-almost-spiritual-like notion that your spouse may provide a more pleasing pleasurable experience, the sexual experience with a prostitute may actually be better but this description is very difficult to explain in words. 7). If you are suffering from a mental illness, it might actually be better to go the prostitute route compared to the dating route. From what I have researched, people with bipolar disorder have a 90% failure rate and so when you combine all the complications with having to deal with a dating relationship, it should be obvious why the prostitute route may be better. Even just speaking generally like any other mental disorder, the patience in some other women may be too much for them to handle. I think most people regardless as to whether they are male or female don’t want to have to put up with somebody’s mental illness as I believe there is strong evidence noting the stigma associated with mental illness on a more broad-scale and macro-analysis viewpoint. 8). The long-term amount of money spent on prostitutes may actually be a better deal for you compared to a real relationship especially if you are a rich heterosexual male. While some may say that prostitutes can be expensive, doing a cost-benefit analysis, the benefits may actually outweigh the costs taking into account all of the previously mentioned points in the above that may have nothing to do with money. In the event of a divorce (which is likely especially these days), be prepared to lose out on a lot of money if you don’t have a prenup. If you have kids, be prepared to spend money on them besides the child support if you love them and want the best for them (like taking them with you on vacation, etc.).
