WHAT IS THE OLDEST PROFESSION???

You seem, Disgruntled. Something we should know?

Profession would imply the exchange of something you can't live on for something you can. That isn't perfect phrasing, but the point is that being a gatherer, or gardnerer as some implied would not be a profession. We don't think of Lions as professional hunters... Though a gardner who produces more than he/she can eat might be a professional, the person they are trading goods with would have to have decided to have a profession first...

The Idea that women used to trade sex for protection, etc. is not entirely fair to either side. Using the lion example from before, just because tigers are kinda cool... The lioness's primary function is to make more lion cubs, but it is the females that hunt. They quite literally bargain food, for sex, and the fairly lazy male really only offers some protection from other prides, and semen.

Quite the role revesal, but definitely bargaining sex for food.

Orangatangs are one of the few animals that routinely practice Oral $ex. This behavior seems mildly irrational from a pure evolutionary standpoint. But it is interesting because most the time it is done when the female is pregnant, or too old to have off spring. Orangatangs only practice Felatio, sorry girls.

I have kind of digressed. I would argue that the oldest profession is not prostitustion, because for the most part, in the time before laws, money, or civilization, the primary function of people was to bear children. So the oldest profesion would have been something like Fur trading, or loin cloth making or fire starting. Some skill that our gatherer ancestors didn't just all have intstinctually.

The Buddhist will tell you that this "desire" is the root of all human suffering... I always found that very negative. I do agree that this desire is a very important part of our very existance/soul... Hmmmm... perhaps, if managed poorly, it is the root of all human suffering. LOL


Hey ! Rob I like your new picture, sure is more cheerful than the old one..as you were sharing the Buddhist says "desire " is the root of human suffering then if a Buddhist has no desire then he wouuldn't eat and be dead, so where would this leave us ? Human desires are good as long as it is applied in a righteous way. Just a thought of course..lol..

My most lovely and astute good life , my only reason for responding is that the good and the beautiful people like yourself are often so sheltered that your ideas and impressions of life are so candy coated that it just doesn't make sense .I agree with you on all you hold dearly including safe sex absolutely in all instances .The thing you don't realize is that most of the world doesn't live in a little candy coated dream . In the real world people are dying unattended from many diseases industrial accidents, including war ,besides std . It is the human condition . The act of paying for companionship or mutually accepting it is perfectly natural and not to mention becoming increasingly popular , not that someone of your calibre would ever chance to experience this , or surely not your partner either , in the perfect world .Your outlook however is very truthful and ultimately respectful .We are not only refering to the back roads of Bangladesh or Ethiopia here .In America 90% of couples have extra /maritial or beyond their primary relationship type affairs maybe only lasting minutes , to years in length , some may concern monetary gratituity or the enhancement of gifts . the good life may marry a millionaire businessman . this business man may be alone in Sweden for many weeks in a 5 star hotel with 20 something models everywhere smiling all the time , now what gentleman would turn down this opportunity answer , none , believe me no one ever knows especially those so sheltered that they would never believe .

Rob, there is always many answers to the same question; I would say gardening and animal keeping is one of the most satisfying hobbies I've had in my life as it is very educational and emotionly satisfying, I've done specialty breeding for 5 years and just enjoyed 90 % of it, gardening was the same so I tend to agree with what I wrote, you have to experience long enough to know its virtue...

The oldest profession is one person charging someone else to answer silly questions!!! I could give you a better explanation, but I would have to charge you a dollar.

BTW, WHY ARE YOU YELLING??? Most people use Capital Letters to emphasize small parts.

Removing any hint of morality from the conversation, certainly an "ARGUMENT" could be made that it is similar, but I normally don't come emotionally scared from hanging out with John @ work. So then one would have to examine "@ what cost" are you expending resources to gain resources, and what value do you place on the physical, mental and emotional resources that you expend to get paid for. A job that TAXES THE SOUL is not a good job to have.

Frankly, to treat a human being as a consumable item is a sh*tty thing to do. Alen, bottom line, men AND women who settle for a cash-for-flesh exchange are BOTH selling themselves short. Why? Because EACH is worth so much more than the other gives him/her credit for.

But, to each his or her own. If a woman is going to do this, a t least let her make $5000 + per night so she can enjoy dignity in old age, instead of waiting tables a t the local Denny's the minute she becomes "too old" to f*ck. Maybe then she'll be able to afford the antiretroviral medication to prevent her HIV from turning into AIDS. Most HIV infections in the USA are spread by pr*stitutes and IV drug users.

Sad. Safe sex everyone, please?

I THINK THE OLDEST PROFESSION IS PROSTITUTION.
IT HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME.
THINK ABOUT IT. IT IS EVEN IN THE BIBLE .
I THINK EVERYONE SELLS THEMSELVES IN SOME FORM OR WAY.
WHEN YOU WORK EVEN A REGULAR JOB YOU ARE SELLING PART OF YOUR SELF .
YOU ARE SELLING YOUR TIME, YOUR RIGHT TO DO WANT YOU WANT FOR THAT EIGHT HOURS THAT YOU ARE WORKING.
I DON'T PERSONALLY EXPLOIT MY SELF IN THIS WAY BUT I LIVE IN VEGAS SO I AM SURROUNDED MY THIS TYPE OF EXPLOITATION.
ALSO THIS IS A MILLIONAIRE SITE BUT I WOULD IMAGINE THAT NOT EVERYONE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A MILLIONAIRE.
THOSE OF YOU HOW HAVEN'T, REMEMBER WHAT IT FELT LIKE TO BE POOR AND TO LIVE FROM PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK, AND EATING MACARONI AND CHEESE AND BEANS AND RICE FOR WEEKS B/C YOU ONLY HAD MONEY FOR RENT.
BACK THEN WHEN YOU DID NT HAVE THE MONEY WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE TO HAVE THE MONEY YOU HAVE NOW???

The oldest racket in the world is not "sex for money." Rather, it is sex for PROTECTION, sex for survival.

Once upon a time, the whole world was violent, male dominated, and dangerous. Women were vulnerable to r ape, to murder, to death-in-childbirth, you-name-it. A woman alone in such a hostile, primitive environment was a dead woman, so the only way to survive was to barter her sexuality to a man in exchange for protection.

They called it "marriage." Most folks don't know that the Arabic word HAREM means "sanctuary." It was a place where women could live in relative safety. It had nothing to do with love.

Back then, prostitution was for women who, for whatever reason, were considered unmarriageable, and their lives were nasty, brutish, and short. As soon as age or illness made them "unf*ckable," they were as good as dead.

Around the world, there are still places that are violent and hostile toward woman, places where the only way for women to survive is either marriage or prostitution. AMERICA IS NOT ONE OF THESE PLACES!!! In America you can walk with your hair uncovered, have any (legal) job you want and live independently from men's whims. So, why ANY woman with her youth and strength and her brain would choose prostitution (with its risk of HIV/AIDS, murder or r ape at the hands of some John, and/or psychological damage) over the more legal and honorable choices available in America is completely BEYOND me.

Honey, your "independence" is an illusion. You are completely dependent upon the whims of men who don't give a crap whether you live or die! Your life is going to be nasty, brutish and SHORT if you don't change it soon. So here is my suggestion: If you lack the grey matter to get yourself a decent job in the private sector, at least get yourself a government job with health insurance so that you may get some therapy before it's too late.

Best of luck to you.
