The prostitution market is created by scarcity.
Some capitalist markets are also driven by scarcity. There is obvious scarcity in all capitalist markets. There is a scarcity of fruits and vegetables because we can’t just go out and pick our own in the wild fields for free; there is a scarcity of IPhones because we can’t make our own smartphones, on and on. However, some capitalist markets are characterized by artificial scarcity.
I believe that the precious gems market is such a market. The whole market is controlled by if not one family (of Jews) than by one ethnic group or extended family if you will (of Jews). The gems are mined by a Jewish family in South Africa, and then the market is run by Orthodox Jews in Belgium and New York. However, my understanding is that they only mine a certain number of diamonds in order to make them quite scarce and that they could easily mine many more diamonds, but that would flood the market and drive down the prices.
There may be some other markets like this but I can’t think of any offhand.
The artificial scarcity that creates the straight prostitution market is one of differential sex drives. Males desire and give out sex much more than females do. Females are dramatically more choosy and less promiscuous than males, and there’s your artificial scarcity right there.
This is why I laugh whenever people insist that men can get sex anytime they want to. Almost all women believe this. This is because women are solipsistic by nature. Women know that any woman can have sex anytime she wants to, so, in their solipsism, women assume that the same must be true for men too because they are so wrapped up in themselves that they cannot imagine life as a man.
To this day, women insist to me that a man can get sex anytime he wants, although they admit that it’s a bit of a hassle. Women often tell me, “Well, all a man has to do is go to a bar, right, and then he can get a woman? I mean if a man goes to a bar, it’s a given that he can find a woman to take home and have sex with her.” Hey, head on over to the Incel sites, and tell them that all they need to do is go to a club or a bar, and they can all get laid that night, guaranteed.
Just going to a bar or a club is no guarantee whatsoever that you can pick up a woman to take home and have sex with. I have been to bars and clubs many times, and at the end of the night, I was driving home alone in my car. And it wasn’t like I was turning down women all night. Quite a few times there weren’t even any to turn down.
The thing is that once sex gets so liberated that any man can go to a bar or club and be guaranteed of free sex that night, there goes the Whore Market. There goes the Sugar Daddy Market. There goes the Kept Woman Market. There goes the Trophy Wife Market. It is in women’s interest to create an artificial shortage of sex in the form of available women. By doing that, like the DeBeers, the female sex can drive up the cost of sex due to supply and demand, provision money and material things from men and incidentally create a massive and lucrative whore market for women.
Every time a woman tells me that any man can just go to a car or club and walk out with free sex for the night, I laugh and tell her that’s not so. “If it were that easy for men to have sex, then why is there is a Whore Market?” And it’s true. In a post-scarcity world of heterosexual sex, there would probably be little or no whore market. Why would there be one at all? If most men could get it for free anytime, why would they spend good money to buy a whore? Makes no sense. Indeed the fact that a vast whore market exists at all is proof positive that, no, men cannot just go out and get some free sex anytime they want to.
But the gay male prostitution market seems to prey not on an artificial scarcity of differential drives and willfulness but more on an artificial scarcity due to age.
