Could she not stretch to the cost of a few condoms along with her gigilo?

I'd hope he'd bring his own as part of the service.

Re: "as part of the service"

The issue is : we don't know what "service" was requested.

She rented services of one "entertainer" for "a three night sojourn". This is not a one-time mistake. You'd think that she'd realize if or not he had a condom during that time and would be capable of putting a stop to things if she did not agree.

If you are going to use such services as a man or a woman then realistically you should take precautions, no if's or buts. I usually lock the door and take the phone off the hook.

Dunno about pregnancy, but according to South African President Jacob Zuma, you should also take a shower afterwards, it prevents AIDS.

I feel sorry for the child

Not having a father around is always going to be tough on all involved.

Re: I feel sorry for the child

Yes but fishing around for 7 years worth of back payments probably has very little to do with the concerns of the child.

Next we'll be hearing about being chased down for child support based from sperm bank donors (I don't see how this situation is *that* different :) )

Only if it is from an unlicensed sperm bank, otherwise there is a specific exemption in the law covering it.

"fishing around for 7 years worth of back payments probably has very little to do with the concerns of the child."

yeah, if she can afford an expensive hotel and a gigolo for 3 nights, perhaps she can afford decent food/clothing/school for the kid?

"Meal-ticket Mommy" indeed... can you say BACKLASH?

So can an individual register as a licensed sperm bank? Asking in behalf of a friend.

In the UK

all four of the men would be being chased by the child support agency.

I'm not sure where my loyalties lie here. If she asked for no condom then I blame the woman as she was paying for the service. If on the other hand if she said she wanted mine Herr to bag up, then he should be tracked down and forced to help support the child.

Re: In the UK

Eight years later, even the couple will not reliably know whose fault it was. All we know is that the man wanted money then, and that the woman wants money now.

Poor kid.

By the CSA, yes, thankfully that agency is no more.

The Child Support Service that replaces it is, in my experience, much fairer.

Re: In the UK

condoms fail....

There is also the pill, the coil and implants.

When having "normal" sex there is nearly always a risk of pregnancy. Adding one layer of protection only reduces it, adding two reduces it further.

Almost no contraception* is 100 effective.

*other than actually already having kids. Which are often the best contraceptive you can have.

Rubbish!

It would be either the entire hotel, or everyone called Michael in the UK.

Good, I had several run ins with the old CSA and although I found the staff I dealt with professional and polite the actual organisation was a mess. Luckily they weren't chasing me for money.

And what if he did "bag up"?

Barrier contraception isn't 100% reliable.

Orange juice is.

Orange juice as contraception: not before, not after but instead.

A bit of German

Aus Spass wurde Ernst. Ernst ist heute sieben Jahre alt.

Yes, childish. Can anyone translate that?

Re: A bit of German

One of those word tricks your can't translate.

"Fun turned into serious; Serious is now seven years old."

Only works in German because "Ernst" is a pretty common boys name.

Re: A bit of German

Hehe really funny indeed. It's a play on words.

Fun turned serious and Serious was his name. (where Ernst is the German translation for Serious and also a common name back in the olden days e.g. In English you had Ernest Hemingway)

Thanks to both of you. I somewhat suspected there isn't a better translation than that.

Re: A bit of German

I think a better English translation would be:

Fun had in earnest. Ernest is now seven years old.

The spelling of earnest/Ernest differ but sound the same when spoken.

Re: A bit of German

And someone who is "earnest", could be said to be serious. Thus, it works in English as well, you just have to pick your words carefully and translate the lad's name.

Well I learned something new

"Professional priapist" is by far my favourite term I've ever heard for a sausage slinger

Man whore, hourly humper, and er..various ones that'll get my comment deleted I know, but I've never heard that one.

The title allows for alternative career paths in addition to Bedroom Buddy, i.e. Doughnut storage.

Considering the circumstances she's lucky that the only souvenir she came away with was a baby and not, let's say, a host of syphilis spirochetes.

Four thumbs down on this, from which I conclude that the Reg has at least four spirochetes amongst its readership.

Why doesn't she just book him again (through an agency, business card in a telephone kiosk etc) and then ask for money rather than giving it? Might be a bit late now, 7 years on, but she should have done it when she found out she was preggers.
