How can prostitution work considering child support

Since DNA testing is now common, how is it possible for prostitution to still work in the US? Why don't a lot of prostitutes sue wealthy clients for child support? (If you are a $2000/night call girl, its a good bet your clients have a lot of money).

How can men possibly take the risk of having sex with prostitutes given this risk?

I'm pretty sure STD's would be a worry.

Not safe enough unless you are very careful to dispose of them yourself.

Do people pay $2K/night for sex with condoms??

Non condom birth control, and abortions. I can't imagine many prostitutes, high end escorts, or low rent street hookers are all that interested in trapping a guy by getting pregnant.

Re: How can prostitution work considering child support

Do escorts book their clients and know who they are? They'd have to reveal a bunch of their clients to have the court order paternity tests to establish which is the father. They might try blackmail, I suppose, or pursue a client privately. I doubt that most prostitutes keep track of clients or even know their real names. Besides, do they want to out themselves?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that a pregnancy is the last thing that they want. If they are an escort by choice, getting pregnant seriously impacts their earning potential for the better part of a year, I would imagine--and they don't get maternity leave or short-term disability. If they aren't doing it by choice (if they've been trafficked or are otherwise indentured to a pimp), that pimp is going to be really fvcking p!ssed that she got pregnant, so much so that her life might be in danger.

Some escorts work for agencies. Others work for themselves. The ones who work for an agency don't "book" the clients themselves. Part of the fee the escort pays to the agency includes the screening and booking of the client.

A client can pay by credit card. Unless the 'john' is using someone else's credit card, the agency/escort will have the client's information.

FYI.

Most escorts are women and no matter what kind of birth control the escort is using, pregnancies can and do occur sometimes. But as pointed out, a pregnancy is the LAST thing an escort wants.

Most escorts insist on using condoms or the deal is OFF. There are some of them who will go 'bareback', but that doesn't usually happen unless you've been a repeat customer and the escort knows you pretty well.

And yes, you WILL pay extra for that service!

Sounds like a well-run syphillis cultivation farm!

Re: How can prostitution work considering child support

I was thinking of the very high end escorts whos clients are almost certain to be wealthy and some are presumably recognizable. I'd think the payout might be high enough to be worth it.

BTW - I know nothing about the business, no personal interest, just saw another random story about a a mid level government official caught spending $4k/night on escorts.

I just can't imagine going that route. No judgment, but I feel bad for the girls.

Re: How can prostitution work considering child support

Why be a prostitute if you can get pregnant by a high earner in a maximum child-support state like MA or CA, then collect enormous amounts of child support? You probably only have to have sex with him a few times, and it's perfectly legal and tax-free. And you can do it with more than one man and collect from them all!

"Over the 23-year period during which child support could be collected in Massachusetts, a recipient could collect a maximum of $923,312 at the top of the guidelines. Generally judges in Massachusetts will order a defendant to pay most of the actual cash costs of a child in addition to "child support," so a recipient who places a child in full-time commercial daycare will still be able to spend the full $923,312. Excluding child care, the USDA-estimated actual cost of providing for a child in a single-parent household is between $8,000 and $10,000 per year (average of $9000 times 18 years of childhood = $162,000). Thus after paying the child's housing, food, transportation, clothing, health care, and other expenses, the child support recipient would have a personal after-tax spending power of $752,312."

""There are a lot of women collecting child support from more than one man," Nissenbaum noted. "I remember one enterprising young lady who worked as a waitress at Bostonís Logan airport. She targeted three airline pilots, had a child by each of them, and back then was collecting $25,000 in tax-free child support from each pilot. Of course, instead of serving food and beverages, she did have to care for those children." Using the USDA-estimated actual costs of children and the 2013 Massachusetts child support guidelines, compared to the college/work alternative a woman would have more spending power collecting child support from two men when each had an income of at least $95,000 per year (sufficient to generate $39,264 per year in tax-free income or $377 per week from each defendant)."

No. Anything above $1550 + tax and you don't need to use them, at that price you know the escort has to be clean.
