Sex and Money: The Moral Paradigm of Escort Service

“My two favorite things in the world are money and sex.” remarked Marie McKinlay in an interview made after she was acquitted of the charges of operating a brothel in London. Although the question was asked at the tail end of the interview, the 40-year old former London escorts agent still had tears in her eyes when she said that after a painful court battle. That highlights the honesty of her remarks.
Sex and money are two of the most vilified words in the English vocabulary. Both can well be a rubber stamp definer of sin. Thus Ms. McKinlay’s remarks, regardless of its honesty, is not only immoral to some quarters of society, it is also insulting especially to those that believes their version of morality should be enforced over others.
The idea that sex and money is immoral exists across several cultures, some more extreme than the others. In all those cultures, it serves no practical and productive purpose but to somehow keep a flock of believers subjugated and obedient to a supposed infallible moral authority. In most, if not all, of those cultures, sex and money are also freely enjoyed by the ruling class among them.
The emerging double standard based on economic status puts the whole “sex and money = evil” theology in serious question. This likewise puts into question the set of qualifications they put forward to qualify the morality of an act in relation to sex and money.
 The vilification of sex and money is even affecting public policy, as demonstrated in the extract below:

British pornography will be censored by new rules which ban video-on demand films from showing acts like spanking and caning.

New rules mean that paid-for porn watched online will have to comply with the current British Board of Film Censors guidelines, which cover DVDs bought in sex shops.

Video shot abroad can still be viewed, but there will be severe restrictions on content created in the UK.

The new Audiovisual Media Services Regulations 2014 mean that porn bought and watched online will have to comply with the R18 rating defined by the BBFC.

How can society fault Ms. McKinlay for admitting to enjoy or at least like money and sex when many of its own leaders have far more questionable affairs in relation to sex and money? When we come to think, why should anybody be judged and rejected because of what she like? As long as her liking of sex and money does violate other people’s existence, it is difficult to fault anyone simply for liking something and profiting from them.
So what if Ms. McKinlay is among those cheap London escorts? Ms. McKinlay is doing something she admittedly loves doing and deliberately aims to earn her living from it. That is exactly how other professions are also practiced. Like medical service or legal service or law enforcement service, escort service serves a certain group of people that freely pays to acquire these services. Escorts may serve in various capacities like doing escorts for couples, or whatever more outlandish requests, the thing is they know what they are doing and the limitations of what they can do for their clients.
London escorts are not reputed professionals if they don’t know what’s right from wrong. Isn’t that what should morality means? Morality should be about humanity that it should be about some dogma or creed.
