The Hook On… Hookers: Part Two!

In keeping with my ongoing examination of the ever-changing state of the hospitality industry, I’d like to take a look at those who, until now, have been nocturnal creatures, prowling hotel bars and hallways long after the sun has given sway to the power of the moon.

 I’m referring to hookers.

 You can dress the name up, call them “Fancy Ladies”, “Ladies of the Evening” or even “Escorts”, but they’re still “Women Who Have Sex With You For Money”. Its that simple. Honestly, they’ve been all over the place lately and this speaks to a greater truth about modern society

In the past I would only spot a prostitute casually walking into the hotel – and slowly stumbling out – during the wee hours of the night; these days, however, they appear at all hours. And trust me, I know the difference between an actual “street-walker” and a Kim Kardashian wannabe.


  • Gaze around the lobby wearing a vacant stare, as they search out the elevators. I don’t know if they’re looking out for cops, but they definitely look spooked.
  • Walk proudly, with good posture – despite the look of confusion – which I can only assume is a part of ensuring job security; who wants a broken-down escort, right?
  • Enter a building with purpose. They have a mission to complete, and it has nothing to do with attracting attention from anyone who isn’t named “John”.
  • Wear outfits that are low-cut but weathered. No sense in spending a fortune on clothing that is just going to wind up in a heap on the floor five minutes after you enter a room, right?


  • Also wear a vacant stare, but not because they have been traumatized on the job. They’re just stupid.
  • Stumble around with lousy posture, but only because they have no self-respect.
  • Seek out all the attention they can get… just like their namesake.
  • Only dress like a hooker. They’ll spend other people’s money (parents, sugar daddies, etc.) to dress up that which they essentially give away, rather than charge top dollar for.

Sex workers in Ontario (my home province) are now able to hire drivers, bodyguards and support staff and work indoors in organized brothels or “bawdy houses,” while exploitation by pimps remains illegal. Three prostitution laws in Ontario were struck down recently – one governing bawdy houses, another pimping and the third communicating to sell sex services after the Ontario’s Court of Appeal released its decision on a 2010 ruling. As far as I can tell, this has made all the difference in the world. The lay of the land has definitely changed in my neck of the woods when it comes to prostitution and it shows. Johns don’t feel as embarrassed engaging the services of a professional and the professionals in questions don’t mind walking – or laying down – in the light.

I honestly don’t know if a hooker is actually wiser to charge their companions directly for sex, as opposed to the young girls of today who demand shiny baubles and new outfits for coitus. But I’m not here to judge, just observe and comment.

Besides, it makes little difference to a bellman if the guest he’s serving has hired his hot companion directly or she’s simply sucking him dry metaphorically rather than literally. I don’t care who takes my services; as long as they pay me appropriately.

Wait a minute…

    Did we reach an epiphany there at the end?
    Hilarious as usual Hook. Especially the “metaphorically rather than literally”! Good stuff.

  2. Jo Bryant says:

    You know what I think Hook ????

  3. Woman says:

    My opinion on the matter for what it’s worth…

    No matter how you look at it… a man will always be paying a woman for sex in one way shape or form.

    Hilarious post Mister The Hook darling!!! We are all hookers as we all work for money. OH! I have to try to find it, a woman who services high powered Wall Street folks recently wrote a blog about how horrible all the Wall Street men were in bed. But who cares. They are not paying her so they can be good in bed.

    You see everything Hook even the hookers! It does seem to me the job choice of a very desperate woman…..Great post!

  5. iamnotshe says:

    OK, if i were a hooker, i wouldn’t want to look like Kim Kardashian. She gives hookers a bad name. Yes, i’m a fan.

  6. Oh the wannabes and such a tough choice-money or gift..
    hilarious post Hook 🙂
    love the way you see things and add humour in them 🙂

  7. Fiona says:

    I found your comparison between the KK wannabes and the hookers particularly hilarious 🙂

  8. How wonderful that tax payers money is not being spent to pretend to control something that can’t possibly be controlled!

  9. I’d rather be a hooker than Kim K any day… I have to agree with “Woman”, men always pay in some way. Whether it’s dinner and a movie or a mortgage and a mini-van, so I guess they hire hookers just to be sure something naked is guaranteed! It doesn’t always happen with a mortgage and a mini-van! 🙂

  10. Karmel says:

    To me, they are generally unhappy about having to sell their bodies to sussistir generally, living operated by some desvenrgonzados take advantage of them and exclavizan.
    It is true that there are those others, the high level … the faces, they say here … but they are still … that same PROSTITUTES.
    Kin K? He has sold everything …

    Kissing The Hook.

    Have a nice weekend.

    Love the comparison! Great post, as usual! 🙂

    You say ” I’m not here to judge, just observe and comment.” I don’t believe we just have to observe,we all should comment about these matters.That is the problem with this society.People don’t want to get involved in such thorny things.I don’t like that Kim Kardashian o whaterver she is.Women like them just destroy all good things we,women are, and managed to be.
    It’s refreshing to read blogs like yours and to know what” the rest of men” think about it.
    I’m not a feminist,but there are some “mental health” of many women that really annoy me.
    We have to educate to the new generations and with these scarecrow ,squeezed in those prostitute dresses,appearing all the time on TV,is very difficult.They are showed as the symbol of success,and I don’t know who for I must feel sorrier about,for them or our future women.
    Great post.

      Thanks for the praise, Lynn! Its great to meet someone who shares my views; you’re absolutely right; we all need to get involved in the cultural changes taking place around us…

  13. I guess a hooker knows exactly what she/he is worth. Which is more than some people do!

  14. giselzitrone says:

    Lieber Hook die Meisten Frauen nutzen die Männer aus und die Männer lassen es ja mit sich machen,da gibt es einen Mann er ist 80 und sie 20 das ist doch keine Liebe ist nur wegen Geld?Grüsse dich Herzlich und wünsche dir einen wunderschönen Nachmittag Grüsse lieb Gislinde.Nur wenn du Lust hast sind Bilder vom Kölner Zoo Gislinde

  15. They have a ComicCon in Niagara Falls? Who knew? Anyway, in Romania, they wait in bushes next to the highway. When you see a stopped car, you know.

  16. TBM says:

    “But I’m not here to judge, just observe and comment.” And I do enjoy your commentary Hook.

  17. ……..I’m beginning to detect a focus on Comic Con…….

  18. Theasaurus says:

    I chuckled all the way through this post. The things you see in your job! Great stuff, Hook.

  19. Sharp says:

    hah good one 😉

  20. The phrase “canned ham” keep flashing across my brain while looking at those Kim picture. Anyway, guess good posture is a mark of class?
    Hilarious observations as always!

    I honestly don’t know if a hooker is actually wiser to charge their companions directly for sex, as opposed to the young girls of today who demand trips, shiny baubles and new outfits for coitus. But I’m not here to judge, just observe and comment.
