Come here, you big, strong Secret Agent Man

Postby Huckleby » Wed Apr 18, 2012 1:06 pm

What do you think of the secret service gone wild in Columbia?

I'm not convinced it was really that big of a security risk. I've heard the arguments, how the narco-terrorists could penetratie the inner sanctum, get clues about the President's schedule. Maybe, but seems far fetched.

I expect the macho security guys have been patronizing hookers overseas forever.

I expect the media excitement is mostly about the thrill of hookers.

Assuming you work, what would happen to you if you were on a business trip and your boss found out that you had some hookers in your room?

Prostitution in legal there, so they weren't breaking the law.

I don't think any of my past employers would much care. My honest answer is that I don't know.

When I was in the Navy, the same prostitutes would follow the fleet and be at our next port of call. I never knew exactly when and where we would be, but the hookers knew. I assumed it was from pillow talk by sailors who had the "need to know" where our ship was going.

I was on a ship in Europe, a bunch of 18-year-olds on a training cruise for a service academy. We had a stop at Hamburg, which has the "reeferbaum" red-light district. Naked women everywhere, but awfully grim scenes. ASFAIK, every guy who payed for a hooker got brutalized. The girl would trick the guy into buying them a drink, which would cost $50 or something, a thug would appear to ensure payment. Everybody got hand jobs when they thought they were going for a ride. A lot of long faces back at the ship. And this is where prostitution is legal and regulated!
