We were “hanging out” at the client’s apartment. Hanging out was his catch all phrase for an encounter or relationship that he didn’t know how to label. “I don’t know what to call it,” is a lyric from a rap song that suits our situation nicely. I liked him, enjoyed his company, and he knew better than to call me without money. And what does his money get him? The client said he wanted me to see this YouTube video because “it gave him hope.” I was similarly moved, which is why I want you to see the video. You might also be inspired. But if you’re not inspired, you’ll be a bit more enlightened about what men do with prostitutes. It’s just like we’re all regular people, doing things ordinary people do. I would have been surprised that a man would pay for such banal companionship, before I worked in that field. Now, very little surprises me.
