MR Edmonton is foolish, for a number of reasons:

  • Prostitutes exploit men at least as much as do traditional female partners (wives); only the business model is different.
  • Herb Goldberg's seminal MR book includes a young male client describing his exploitation.
  • MR needs to pull strength from all sectors, liberal and conservative, secular and religious. Taking a position on prostitution alienates one side or the other.
  • Equality would consist of women offering the average man sex freely and frequently. Until that happens, prostitution is a symptom of men's subordination.
