"Everything in the world is about sex, except sex itself. Sex is all about power."

I find myself in the same mindset as Fred by the way (though I never went as far as to pay for it ).

Life as it exists on the planet is all about procreation. Nature has made sure it's a thoroughly enjoyable activity in the process, to make sure living beings perform the necessary rituals frequently enough to secure the future of a species.

Our society has advanced into a complex coexistence, with all sorts of social rules. Procreation or the desire to do so are pretty ingrained into it, even if obscured and hidden: something as simple as dancing is actually a precursor to a mating ritual, somewhere deep down. The more power someone has, the more attractive that person becomes - and power can come in the form of money, charisma, etc ... anything that might appeal to a higher chance of passing your genes on to a future generation in the long run.

However, power also corrupts. It can lead to abuse and manipulation - and the oldest profession of the world is no stranger to it. From an outside perspective, such negative connotations tarnish respect for human life, for the participants who are "forced" into it - which leads to resentment against people who are working in that branch, even if they do so willingly, because they like doing so.

@Maurice: You mean the more you have pure power, the more you can force women into it, or the more you have pure power the more women will want you?

Both are exact, but the type of societies following each logic are not the same.

You can't take 10 examples and conclude it is the norm for billions of people, the fact that it generated such scandals proves it isn't. On the other side, the patriarchal perspectives in countries we know so well, is represented by thousands of forced marriages, discriminating laws, inequality of rights between sexes and so on, without people being scandalized at all, isn't it?

You asked the question then specified about Hollywood lol. Btw, some of the people who have the real power have the bad habit of forcing anyone to do their way, forcing women is cake while forcing nations is the big game. And that is universal, no matter the civilization or geographical location, I think.

Prostitution isn't a job reserved for women only.

Male prostitution has been found in almost all modern and ancient cultures.[5] The practice in the ancient world of men or women selling sexual services in sacred shrines, or sacred prostitution, was attested to be practised by foreign or pagan cultures in the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament.[5] Male prostitutes are also attested to in Graeco-Roman culture in the New Testament, among many other ancient sources. Some interpreters consider that in one of the Pauline vice lists, 1 Corinthians 6:9–10, one of the words malakoi ("soft") or arsenokoitai (a compound of "male" and "bed") refer to male prostitution (or male temple prostitution): this interpretation of arsenokoitai is followed in the New Revised Standard Version.

The Encyclopedia of Homosexuality states that prostitutes in ancient Greece were generally slaves.[5] A well known case is Phaedo of Elis who was captured in war and forced into slavery and prostitution, but was eventually ransomed to become a pupil of Socrates; Plato's Phaedo is told from his perspective. Male brothels existed in both Ancient Greece and ancient Rome.[5]

Court records and vice investigations from as early as the 17th century document male prostitution in what is now the United States. With the expansion of urban areas and the aggregation of gay people into communities toward the end of the 19th century, male/male prostitution became more apparent. Around this time, prostitution was reported to have taken place in brothels, such as the Paresis Hall in the Bowery district of New York and in some gay bathhouses. Solicitation for sex, including paid sex, took place in certain bars between so-called "fairies."[6]

Male street prostitutes solicited clients in specific areas which became known for the trade. Well-known areas for street "hustlers" have included: parts of 53rd Street in New York City; Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles; Cypress Street in Atlanta, Piccadilly Circus, in London; "The Wall" in Sydney's Darlinghurst; The Drug Store and Rue Sainte-Anne (fr) in Paris; Polk Street Gulch in San Francisco; and Taksim Square in Istanbul. Bars such as Cowboys and Cowgirls and Rounds in New York, Numbers in Los Angeles and certain go-go bars in Patpong Thailand were popular venues where male prostitutes offered their services.
Young male prostitutes in the Edo period of Japan were called kagema. Their clients were mainly adult men.

In southern areas of Central Asia and Afghanistan, adolescent males between twelve and sixteen years old perform erotic songs and suggestive dancing and are available as sex workers. Such boys are known as bacchá.

In India, a hijra is a physically male or intersex person who may sometimes enter into prostitution. Not all hijras are prostitutes, however, and many consider themselves to have a female identity in a male body and accept this as a sacred condition or gift. A common tradition in India is that Hijras dress as women and dance at weddings, child births, and other celebrations and demand a large amount of money from the owner.

The most famous male prostitute of the Victorian era was the Irish-born John Saul, who was involved in both the 1884 Dublin Castle scandal, and the Cleveland Street Scandal of 1889.

Cuban male prostitutes are called jinetero – literally "horse jockey"; female prostitutes are called jinetera.

A male sex worker in the Caribbean who solicits on the beaches and accepts clients of either sex is called a Sanky-panky.
