Ah, the world's oldest profession. Throughout history men have had certain needs, and there have been certain women who have been willing to sell themselves to meet those needs. It is almost a perfect marriage (no pun intended). That is, if you have really loose morals and do not mind getting arrested from time to time. Or being called a "John" a lot.
A lot of people have a view of this practice, and the entire business that goes along with it; it's a little bit false. That makes sense, of course, there has to be something scary and unknown about the whole thing. Normalizing things like this has a whole set of consequences for society that a lot of people are not ready to deal with at all. Ever hear the whole story about Pandora's Box? Well, that is pretty much what you are dealing with here.
But the thing is, while some of the things you are going to find out here are kind of mind blowing, there are all sorts of aspects to the world's oldest profession that are really pretty normal as well. Because at the end of the day, the world's oldest profession is just that. It is a job. A huge business, for sure- one of the biggest ones in the world, in fact.
Also, it's one that you are not a part of and know nothing about, right? We get it. Don't worry, there's nothing to be concerned about here; our lips are sealed. Anyway, here is TheRichest's list of 15 things you didn't know about the world's oldest profession. So now you know.

1 Pimps Aren't Happy With How the Media Makes Them Look
What a surprise, right? Who would have guessed? It appears that pimps don't like the way the media show them to be. For one thing they don't like how it is always assumed that they use violence to control women, and some of them even don't like being called "pimps". It seems they think of themselves more of businessmen. The thing is, they are businessmen. It is just the business they are in involves being a pimp. Why is that so hard to understand? With all that said, I do kind of get it. The way the media portrays them is always as these black, jive-talking guys that look like they just walked off the set of Starsky and Hutch. I mean obviously they don't all look like that, or act like that. But hey, I am in the media and I just wrote that so apparently I just broke the mold.
