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???
? a paid occupation, especially one involving training and a formal qualification.
That rules God out doesnt it?
Then I debated what in the bible was the next thing
Adam nor Eve hunted for food as it was already there for them in abundance to live on the fruits of the land.
Cain and Abel
One was a farmer and the other was a shepherd.
There is possibly a draw as there was possibly two professions that are the oldest. But if you want to delve further then is it logic to assume that as Cain was the oldest of the 2 brothers then his profession may of come first because he would of got his skills before his younger brother.
Yeah Thats the oldest in the book. Now that i own a escort agency here in TX and even if all money exchanged is for time and comapanionship its all the same. But its all about the money reight? its becomeing bif business Pulling in around 20 to 30,000 a night. give or take.
Before you can have a profession you have to have a 'requirement for services' so you need a 'Kerbcrawler' and if youve got kerb crawlers youve got, yes thats right the oldest profession in the world the 'ViceSquad', see bloody authority spoiled things from the start
A physician, a civil engineer, and a consultant were arguing about what was the oldest profession in the world.
The physician remarked, "Well, in the Bible, it says that God created Eve from a rib taken out of Adam. This clearly required surgery, and so I can rightly claim that mine is the oldest profession in the world."
The civil engineer interrupted, and said, "But even earlier in the book of Genesis, it states that God created the order of the heavens and the earth from out of the chaos. This was the first and certainly the most spectacular application of civil engineering. Therefore, fair doctor, you are wrong: mine is the oldest profession in the world."
The consultant leaned back in her chair, smiled, and then said confidently, "Ah, but who do you think created the chaos?"
It is usually assumed that prostitution is the oldest way of living. However, this may not be right. Perhaps the oldest profession is state leadership. It is so that all the millions come from the states, and noone cannot be a prostitute without having customers that come from the state with money. The state has been prostituted in a way. Behind every prostitute is a businessman that can pay, and the last one is the state business ???
Angyson write: Been there,done that. My wife was holding my entrepreneurial spirit back with her constant caution. The year she left, I made $100,00. The year after,$500,00. In five years,I was worth $5 million in cash and $250 million on paper. And I never ate Kraft dinner again.
Hey I have ate in restaurants for the past month everyday! What's wrong with Kraft dinner's ?
OK everyone, some people might not like this but, opinions are like A*s holes everyone has them. I think that if you are going to sleep with a guy* (not alot of guy's) make sure you get something. Is it better to get something or to just sleep with him and have him talk about it and get nothing? I mean after all he would be just using you. So why not get compensated? "Some" men sleep around all the time, but they are not the one who is called a wh0*e. Here is a good example: I have a friend, she has a boyfriend who lives with her. I see her struggling all the time to pay her bills. He always keeps his money for himself. I see her busting her butt to make sure her guy is happy. She is now working on two months late rent and this guy is getting his groove on with her, while his friends are in her house watching her tv and eating. This is what I mean why I say "get compensated", that is if you are going to be with a man like that or any man who just want's to have fun
Oldest profession: Barter then Sales cloths,shoes,tents,funerals etc.
Do you know why people held a wake for a person who died.
A long time ago people made cups and dishes with lead in them,they would get lead poisoning and sometime appeared to die while walking. They would not bury them for a few days to see if they would WAKE up. Some were alive when they were buried,some woke up pounding on the inside of the casket at their funeral..
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.
