Game Of Thrones: All The Whores

armeca on bronn's lap

Daze of Daze Reader is one of the few sex bloggers on my blogroll who has been at this longer than me. But he’s still got it, turning out some excellent posts, like this one:

A Who’s Who Of Whores In Game Of Thrones

It’s an encyclopedic reference to all the appearances of all the whores in the television show, complete with screen shots. As one who thinks that the show is made better by regularly showing us people getting on with their lives the way folks do by fucking, talking, and scheming simultaneously, I find the compilation quite enjoyable.

On nomenclature: I have never been one to throw the word “whore” around casually, on the blog or off it. But Daze chose to use it for (what I take to be) literary reasons that seem to him good, and I’m mirroring his usage because it’s his blog post I’m referencing. Here’s Daze on his reasons:

A note on language: some other sites have made reference to “sex workers” of Game of Thrones. A more respectful term than “whores”, certainly, but it rings false for the fictional world portrayed in the show. As Ellaria Sand says when Olyver addresses her as “my lady”:

Oh, I’m not a lady.

A term of courtesy in this establishment.

A lie, anywhere. Why not use the right words? I’m a bastard. She is a whore. And you’re a, what, a procurer.

Bluntness has value. With all due respect to sex workers fictional and real, we’ll stick with “whores” here.

On Courtesans And Whores

The next time you hear someone (or even yourself) talking the same old smack about hookers, consider this:

The existence of courtesans is a glaring refutation of neofeminist dogma about objectification, the eternal victimhood of whores, etc; the fact that the most celebrated, successful and highly-paid harlots of all time were often those who were educated and could match or surpass men in intellectual pursuits throws a huge spanner into the catechism that prostitution is a manifestation of male dominance over women, that our clients hate us, and so on.

From Maggie McNeill’s blog post about Tullia d’Aragona.

Rough Sex For Whores: WTF?

This story makes me shake my head:

At one point the subject turned to sex and the difference between making love and fucking, and gentle and rough sex.

Mr. Suit was quite opinionated and said he thought that only whores liked rough sex.

After noticing that I had been kind of quiet for a bit he turned to me, put his hand on my leg, and asked me what was wrong.

As I gently but firmly removed his hand, I told him “ummmm, nothing’s really wrong, I just think that you spent a lot of money tonight taking a whore out to dinner, and she’s not gonna fuck you.”

The obvious part is, dude shot himself down by being fetish-negative and judgmental about rough sex before he took the elementary precaution of finding out how his dinner companion felt about it. Stupid!

Hardly the first time, though, that a man’s arrogant assumptions cost him in lost nookie opportunities.

But in my book, he committed double-extra-stupidity by using “whore” pejoratively. It’s one of those words — like “cunt” when it’s used as an insult — the utterance of which implies a huge package of the speaker’s bad attitudes toward women in general. Definitely not a word to trot out when you’re wining-and-dining!

Guilt Over Jerking It To Whores

Porn model Cherry Torn has this to say about the mysterious phenomenon of porn-consumer negativity towards the performers they are paying:

It’s hard enough to be a woman with opinions, but taking unashamed control of your sexuality is such a threat to some men. There will always be a certain subset of porn consumer that lashes out at performers, because they don’t know what to do with their guilt over jerking it to whores. Maybe they just get off on being mean or they want to show the dumb sluts how smart they are…

Hating On Sluts And Whores: Sour Grapes

Y’all know I don’t believe in sluts. But even if I did, it’s always been a mystery to me why your average man might object to them.

Self-described fetish model and BDSM porn starlet Rain DeGrey says it’s a simple case of sour grapes (if you don’t remember your Aesop, click here):

When someone is hating on SLUTS & WHORES, what it really means is they are upset the sluts aren’t paying any attention to THEM.

Thanks to Bondage Blog for spotting this.

Julie Meadows On Being A Whore

In a longer piece, Julie Meadows writes:

A woman has natural power in this world. She is a potent source of sexuality and life. It is a gift, but as with all gifts, it is also a curse because men and women will always hate her for knowing her own power.

That is why she is called a whore. She knows it, she uses it, and it scares people who want it or wish they had it, even if her choices have nothing to do with those people. Sex work can be safe and healthy, or it can be illegal and dangerous. We should be protecting all members of our society, including the beautiful and powerful women. A sex worker — properly trained for sex work — can be an educator and source of liberation for others. A friend of mine told me that as a young man, he picked the female with the most sexual experience and had her teach him everything. He had successful relationships after that because he acquired skill through mindfulness that many men never learn because they don’t pay attention. But more than that, a compassionate sex worker can provide emotional and mental soothing for clients, or teach couples things they can do together through instruction. I spent many hours as an escort just talking to clients, listening to their problems and assuring them that the stresses of their daily life are common and that they shouldn’t be too hard on themselves. With an education in therapy and counseling, coupled with the confidence that comes with providing a legal service, I could have thrived as someone capable of physical and mental and emotional therapy. They are all important.

What’s wrong with being a whore? The people who strip her humanity away from her and tape her mouth closed. Other than that, nothing.

Emphasis, on those first three sentences, added by me.

Elliot Spitzer, Whoremonger And Hypocrite?

This just in from the New York Times:

Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet with a high-priced prostitute at a Washington hotel last month, according to a person briefed on the federal investigation.

The wiretap recording, made during an investigation of a prostitution ring called Emperors Club VIP, captured a man identified as Client 9 on a telephone call confirming plans to have a woman travel from New York to Washington, where he had reserved a room. The person briefed on the case identified Mr. Spitzer as Client 9.

The man described as Client 9 in court papers arranged to meet with a prostitute who was part of the ring, Emperors Club VIP, on the night of Feb. 13. Mr. Spitzer traveled to Washington that evening, according to a person told of his travel arrangements.

Classy guy, screwing around on his wife the night before Valentine’s day, eh?

Here’s a nice photo of the family man with his wife and three daughters:

elliot spitzer and family

(I found that photo on an adult webmaster board along with the cruel-but-funny caption: “Daddy’s been banging some prostitutes, girls, so let’s all go to church!”)

I’ll leave the detailed analysis to Susie Bright, who really enjoys tearing into the sexual hypocrisy of conservative old white male politicians (into which camp Spitzer, though a Democrat, surely falls, thanks to his reputation as an aggressive, even rabid, law-and-order prosecutor). I’ll just say there surely must be a special circle in hell for prosecutors who enjoy a particular vice while denouncing that same vice and sending people to jail for it:

Mr. Spitzer gained national attention when he served as attorney general with his relentless pursuit of Wall Street wrongdoing. As attorney general, he also had prosecuted at least two prostitution rings as head of the state’s organized crime task force.

In one such case in 2004, Mr. Spitzer spoke with revulsion and anger after announcing the arrest of 16 people for operating a high-end prostitution ring out of Staten Island.

“This was a sophisticated and lucrative operation with a multitiered management structure,” Mr. Spitzer said at the time. ?It was, however, nothing more than a prostitution ring.?

Update, courtesy Jay Leno: “In the governor’s defense, he was bringing prostitution to its knees… one woman at a time.”

Second update: Susie’s take, as anticipated.
