I haven't been on this website in quite some time, in truth there are a number of factors that have caused me to keep my distance from the escort scene.
As some of you may remember, I have political aspirations and am quite paranoid about the impact seeing W/Ls can have on any form of political career, from politician to policy drafter. The recent scandal with MP Craig Thompson was somewhat of a point of concern for me. Barring the ethical issues of his actions, the primary thing that entered my mind was how they actually discovered he had visited a brothel, and more to the point the fact that they could still track this. As someone that values my privacy and discretion, the ability for something like this to easily come back to haunt someone is quite disturbing.
Crossing my mind first was HOW it was discovered he visited a brothel. For starters, ignoring the fact that he was dumb enough to pay by credit card for this service, how did they trace his financial records close enough to notice this? More to the point, why was the bill receipt not a little more discreet? If the brothel was approached by the media, did they admit to his patronage? It alerted me that Australia still has so far to go in both accepting prostitution as a legitimate service as well as privacy laws protecting the W/L and, just as importantly, the client.
