This is basically true, but those guys were mostly not “incels”; they had the sense to occasionally avail themselves of the services of the local widow who provided attention at rates they could afford (in my home town, she was known as “Rose Marie” and everyone including the cops left her in peace).  This was done on their “night out” or when “going to town”.  Modern “incels” foolishly reject such services because they’ve infected each other with stupid prohibitionist notions, as cult members are wont to do.  Modern people are deeply in denial about how common sexwork has been throughout human history.  In the 19th century, nearly all men paid at least occasionally; even in 1948 Kinsey reported 70% of men had paid at least once.  The idea of sex work being a “crime”, pathology or abberation dates to the early 20th century, but didn’t become common in the general public until the ’80s; projecting these reality-denying modern notions back into history generates absurdities like the idea that men just voluntarily went without sex when it was available for a price they could at least occasionally afford.


I find paywalls distasteful, and so many people find this blog valuable as a resource I just can’t bring myself to install one.  Furthermore, I find ad delivery services (whose content I have no say over) even more distasteful.  But as I’m now semi-retired from sex work, I can’t self-sponsor this blog by myself any longer.  So if you value my writing enough that you would pay to see it if it were paywalled, please consider subscribing; there are four different levels to fit all budgets.  Or if that doesn’t work for you, please consider showing your generosity with a one-time donation; you can Paypal to maggiemcneill@earthlink.net or else email me at the same address to make other arrangements.  Thanks so very much!
