But are they really shit holes?
-Nevada: aint half bad minus the radiation and sand.
-Amsterdam: Weed, old architecture, nice people. What's not to love?
-Switzerland: Come on Switzreich is an awesome place to hang out. It's beautiful, the standard of living is great, the country is relatively wealthy.
-Germany: Seriously this place is awesome. I would have difficulty calling anywhere in germany a "shithole"
I wont sugar coat the fact that in many places prostitutes are mostly immigrants, and that on the whole they are not enjoying a high standard of living.
I would argue two things about that:
1) As prostitution is appealing to desperate folks it will always be the case that people turn to it in that case, and the majority of prostitutes will be on the disadvantaged side.
2) However, I see this evening out in a world where many countries have legalized prostitution and there is less incentive to roam about to the centers with looser laws. In a world where prostitution is a more normal thing, there will be a demand for middle class prostitutes as people ultimately will want to screw people from their own bracket.
3) Perhaps it is likely "high end" and "midtier" prostitutes are easy to under represent.
As sex work becomes a normal thing the way that "surgery" became a normal thing I think we will seen conditions in even the most low rent establishments improve toward a respectable norm.
