It is truly fascinating to see that a subject can bring up mixed feelings. Prostitutes are, and have been, controversial throughout time.
Some have no problems to admit they like an occasional visit to the ladies of pleasures, others keep it a secret shared only between themselves and the particular lady (or ladies) they visit.
At the same time it is a subject that has inspired so many artists to capture, either in photographing as in art. I tried to bring together a mixed collection from various photographers (to see art visit my other site).
