    This person was teaching in college...I'd want a refund on that tuition.

    This is one of those "You can't make this **** up" incidents:

    :eek:

    There are some seriously messed up people gravitating toward teaching in recent years, but this is unique.

    So you'd be good with paying this guy to teach your kids german knowing his particular... proclivity? Sorry, I'm not so open minded.

    the reason its illegal is because someone is having fun someone else is making money that is almost impossible to tax

    If I was bothered by his proclivity, then maybe, but who cares, he's teaching German.

    What difference does it make, as long as my kid learns German?

    If I need to explain...
    I suspect there is no way we are going to agree.

    How about leading your son's cub scout troop?

    Two consenting adults

    College teacher...

    Changing material facts is not important to this discussion.

    In this particular instance, there were in fact not two consenting adults. Otherwise...no article.

    I'm thinking "former college teacher" sounds better.

    Trying to figure out if there is any place you draw the line.

    Sorry, I have to side with overkill on this one. I don't consider myself a homophobe, but this behavior is indicative of more than sexual preference.

    Also, I thought professors got paid pretty well to teach.

    So I must be living a sheltered life. Apparently, I'm the only one who finds a 65 yo college prof dressing up as a woman and prostituting himself (?) just a bit out of the ordinary. Even if one isn't burdened with the oddly outdated concept of morals, I would think that most would at least find it noteworthy, simply for it's peculiarity.

    Reinhart and the undercover officer came to an agreement to exchange 30 minutes of sexual service for $60.
    “After they came to the agreement, that was enough for a charge,” Smith said.


    I’m just wondering:

    Doesn’t ‘sexual service’ actually have to be rendered to be prostitution?
    Is there such a thing as ‘Attempted Prostitution?
    What if Reinhart provided the service but wasn’t paid, did theft of services occur?
    What if Reinhart demanded the fee first, but then declined to provide the service, would it still be prostitution or petty larceny?
    If the service was rendered under the pretense that Reinhart was, in fact, a female, would that be misrepresentation?
    What if only 23 minutes of service was provided? Would that be a breach of an oral contract (literally & figuratively ;))? What would the remedy be? Would the rate be prorated?

    (Don't mind me. I'm just trying to avoid cleaning the house.)

    I'm with Dr. Ron Paul on this. Were does the state get off regulating a business transaction. Simple answer, it they can't tax or license it, it's illegal.:rolleyes:

    The moral argument against prostitution has kept it illegal and the illegality is one of the tools pimps use to force young women into this life.

    Were it legal, States and cities would immediately have budget surpluses and the only ones participating in it would actually be doing it by choice.

    The prevailing thought here is that NO ONE has the right to choose whether or not WE can buy or sell guns...so why do so many of us think it's our place to decide whether or not a person can profit from sexual activity?

    Honestly, what's more dangerous, buying a weapon to discharch or renting a hooker to discharge your gun?

    Tack

    Where did it say this guy was leading cub scouts? Now if this guy was trying to get with little boys I say cut his nuts off and let him bleed out in the river. But as far as two consenting adults doing their thang (which has absolutely no effect on me) I say who gives a crap? If this guy was a good professor is sounds like the only people hurt by this are his students.

    You can't seriously believe that any & every 'business' transaction should be unregulated. This is a really weak, ultra-libertarian argument. :rolleyes:
