Escorts are prostitutes. Anyone can see this. What did she expect? Met client at a motel where he paid come on. She put herself into that position. She should have been put in jail along with her pimp/boyfriend.

According to the article, this was only supposed to be a "date" with no sex.

Regardless, prostitutes can be raped the same as any other woman, and NO means NO- whether the woman saying it is a nun or an escort of a prostitute.

No one should "expect" to be raped, and someone who commits such an act of violence against a woman- no matter what her profession- is guilty of a crime.

A comedian was joking about this subject. He said if he dressed up like a policeman and someong asked him to arrest someone he would say: "Just because I dress like this doesn't mean I am one." So the hooker/escort says the same. Well duh.

It doesn't matter! What? A prostitute can't be raped and/or beaten? And if she is, she deserves it and what else does she expect? Also, she doesn't have the right to change her mind or say no? According to her and/or her boss, no sex was to be involved. There are people who hire people as actual escorts or because they are in need of companionship that doesn't necessarily involve sex.

Whatever- it's really sickening that some seem to be saying it's okay to beat up and/or rape a prostitute. Well, it's NOT okay, and rape is rape and it doesn't matter if the woman who is raped is a prostitute. She is still a person and still has rights and one of those rights is to be protected from a violent assault as well as the right to prosecute a person for raping and/or assaulting her.

To trt, by your tag it seems you're attempting to generate some credibility. You missed. What is the "intent" or expected outcome of a "$200 date" meeting at a motel? Remember the opening scene or "Breakfast At Tiffany's" when Holly runs away from a man saying he wants his $50?
Feminist and racist are the same. Gender and race are the respective targets.

Even if the intent was sex, which is not the case according to the story, even if the woman took his money and then said "NO", that does NOT give a man the right to rape her! I missed nothing. And btw, since it seems you may not be aware of what rape actually is: it is an act of violence and has much more to do with violence, anger and control than it does with sex.

Regardless, a physical assault and/or rape of a woman- ANY woman- no matter what she does for a living- is against the law and should not be tolerated.

If this escort service is operating within the limits and guidelines of the law, neither the woman or the escort service are guilty- the only guilty party here is the man who attacked her, and HE is the one in jail in lieu of posting $20,000 in bail- NOT the woman who was attacked.

And yes, I remember "Breakfast at Tiffany's" very well- what that has to do with this makes no sense, but regardless- Holly Golightly was not a prostitute and regarding this story, even if the rendevous was for sex (yet to be proven) that does NOT give a man the right to rape and/or assault a prostitute.

If anyone is missing anything here, it is you, because what don't you get about that?

I'd like to see this case go before Judge Judy. Judge Judy: "So your pimp gets $200 and you go to a motel to meet a stranger and you thought what????? You're going to play scrabble????? You're being charged with prostitution & felony conspiracy to defraud!!
That's what would happen if the Judge wasn't afraid all of those witness tampering women's advocates in the courtroom wouldn't have some subversive reporter put the Judge's picture in tomorrows paper with the caption: "Judge Refuses Help To Crying Woman". The courtrooms used to be full of KKK, now it's the "women's advocates". For twenty years I watched Honorable Judges cave in to the witness tampering so his picture wouldn't be in the paper.
Take a literature course, Holly was a prostitute.

Sweetheart- I have a degree in literature and have read all of Capote's works among countless other authors. Holly was a "party girl"- a subtle but big difference between that and a prostitute.

If you think Judge Judy (or any other judge who has a right to sit on a bench) would condone a woman being raped and beaten, you are seriously out of touch with reality. Thankfully, the GUILTY party in this- the man accused of raping the woman and beating her is in JAIL until he posts bail.

Seems to me like the system is working in this case. Under NO circumstances is the beating and/or raping of a woman acceptable behavior, and anyone who attempts to justify such a crime has some serious problems.

And you very well may have a serious problem, known as misogyny, if you are seriously attempting to condone the actions or defend the actions of a man who raped a woman by justifying it because she is a prostitute.

Even prostitutes have a right to say NO.

Take a human sociology course.

Take a literature course, Holly was a prostitute.
"The story portrays the life of Holly Golightly, a young woman transplanted to Manhattan with an unknown past. She is trying to find her place in the world when she meets her neighbor, an unnamed, unemployed writer. The novella is set in Manhattan's Upper East Side during the 1950's. It follows the young writer's affections for the strange but charming Holly.
The book opens with the narrator and a local bartender, Joe, talking about a package Joe had recently received. Joe was interested in ice hockey and a few serials, but the thing that drew him together with the narrator was their mutual, platonic interest in one Holly Golightly. The first real encounter between Holly and the narrator comes in the middle of the night, as she is trying to escape a violent, drunken date's advances, and climbs the fire escape outside her bathroom window, into the narrator's apartment above. The two talk into the morning, but do not become truly close friends until months down the road. Holly and the narrator have a series of falling-outs throughout the novella, but they ultimately remain close. At this first meeting, Holly names the narrator "Fred" (his real name is never revealed) after her brother, for whom she cares greatly, and who is enlisted overseas. This establishes her relationship with the narrator as close but ultimately fraternal rather than romantic. Throughout the novel, Holly is reluctant to reveal her own background and history, until her past finds itself on her doorstep - literally - when her husband, a significantly older man, comes looking for her from Tulip, Texas. It is revealed that Holly and her brother Fred were runaway orphans, when this man, the widowed Doc Golightly and his several children, kindly took them in. Doc eventually asks the fourteen year old "Lulamae Barnes" to be his wife, and she apparently agreed, becoming his child bride. Seeking more from life, perhaps influenced by the magazines she used to receive, Lulamae ran away from this life to Hollywood, where a brief attempt by an agent to get her a film career leads her to run away, this time to New York City."

Seems some people think it's perfectly fine to rape and beat a prostitute. Wow.

How about a couple that is going out on a date with the understanding between them that sex would be part of the date?

Let's say that they go out to dinner- the man spends hundreds of dollars in anticipation of sex with the woman, and for whatever reason, she changes her mind and says "NO".

Would the man be justified in raping and beating her because he spent all this money on her in anticipation of promised sex?

I surely hope the answer would be no, but if there are those who think it's okay to rape and beat prostitutes but not other women, you have serious problems, because, once again- whether a woman is a prostitute, a nun or a saint- it is WRONG to rape someone and to beat them.

But it seems like some people sure could use some sense beaten into them.

"The woman told police O'Dea asked for sex and became angry after she said no, the report said. She said O'Dea pushed her down and raped her. She said he then grabbed her purse and fled to his Volkswagen Jetta."

So....it would appear he DID get his cash refund- but that isn't the point! Whether he did or not, raping and beating a woman is wrong and it makes no difference if she is a prostitute or a puritan, a saint or a sinner.

Stop trying to justify men raping and beating women. There IS no justification for it.

Period.

Anyone who believes this "no sex" story is rather naive. Sex was the intent of all parties involved. It's an escort service. What the hell do you think they do? Admitting to charging for sex ain't one of 'em.

It would seem that some people think that if sex is anticipated and even promised, beating and raping a woman is perfectly acceptable and justified if for whatever reason she changes her mind.

Oh wait- sorry- I guess it's only okay if the woman is a prostitute.

That's pretty much along the same lines of convoluted logic of those who say that if a woman dresses provocatively and gets raped, she got what she deserved.

Not only is that type of thinking sick, sick, sick- it is also totally inaccurate, as rape has much less to do with sex than it does with violence, as rape is actually an act of violence and not sex.

Go educate yourselves.

Misogynist: A man who hates women as much as women hate one another.
H. L. Mencken
US editor (1880 - 1956)

Holly was a call girl and as O.J. Berman (Martin Balsam) labeled; "A bad investment. Among her paid duties was delivering coded messaged to a jailed mafia boss, while the male narc cops bought into Holly being guileless.
Holly's inability to trust was a cage of her own making and she beat the heads of others (including Pat Neal's "Kept Boy" Paul) against the bars.

Raping a woman (or man)is wrong no matter what.

Beating someone is equally wrong no matter what. HOWEVER, if an African_American guy walks into a White Power meeting and yells "Cracker!" and then gets beat up? What exactly did he think the outcome would be?

She does have the right to say no. But COMMON SENSE tells anyone that this type of outcome was predictable.

Bare Essentials is listed as a dating and introduction service.

But- that doesn't matter. A prostitute has the right to say "NO" to sex and that does not give her "john" the right to rape her and beat her.

Sex may have been the intent, but either party has the right to change their "intention".

From the story, it doesn't sound as if she even had a chance to refund his money, because as soon as she said "no", he raped her.

Yes- he should have gotten his money back, but raping and beating a person is just WRONG- even if the person who is raped is a prostitute.

This is really a no-brainer, folks.

RAPE- under ANY circumstances- is WRONG.

Whatever- she was not a call girl- she did not have sex for money, but did receive money for other favors having nothing to do with sex.

Then you babble about adjectives in my posting shifting to reveal nouns.....not really interested in your stream of consciousness....and my mind is far from tortured. I don't think the same can be said for your mind though, because you keep trying to justify a woman being raped because she is a prostitute.

Under NO circumstances- and certainly not over a paltry amount of money such as $200 -but even if it was much more than that- is raping a woman acceptable or justifiable. YOU are the one making excuses and trying to justify rape.

Never mind "Breakfast At Tiffany's".....you need to learn more about what RAPE is and not worry so much about the differences between a prostitute, call girl or party girl.

I shudder to think what you might do (or may have done for all I know) to a woman who first promised you sex and then exercised her RIGHT to say "NO".
