Let's ponder this for a minute..
First of all, prostitution is decriminalised in New Zealand, which means I'm not doing anything illegal.
I am very quiet while conducting my business (and when I am relaxing).
I don't play loud music,don't smoke or do drugs.
I don't hang outside of my room in my "working" attire-in fact, every time I go out, I dress pretty demurely.
My clients are the types that like discretion, so they try to sneak in and out with as little fuss as possible,making no noise.
I schedule my bookings very carefully, so there is never any kind of "overlap" which means no one ever loiters on the premises waiting for his appointment.
I only see clients during the day (I don't work past 8 pm), so no one comes and goes at night (I am usually tucked in bed snugly by 10pm).
So all this blows the whole "family" thing out of the water-how are "families" affected by my business?
Another thing that puzzles me: New Zealand prides itself in being open-minded (and most people I've met, actually ARE open-minded), yet in this time of economic crunch, felt by everyone and definitely motel owners in small towns like the one I'm in at the moment), people choose to ride their high moral horse and reject my Platinum Visa.
The motel I'm staying in only has 3 cars (including mine) in the parking lot (and that's in the middle of peak public holiday season), yet the owner forgoes the profit for dubious "righteousness"... This just blows me away, as it makes no sense at all.
I have to say, I was wondering about that owner when I checked in yesterday: I walked into reception asking for rates and when I found them satisfactory, I told him I wanted to book a room for 3 nights, yet instead of running my credit card,as all the hotels/motels do, he said he would write down the number and charge me at the end. This is highly irregular and I wonder if he perhaps a lurker on New Zealand Girls (http://www.newzealandgirls.co.nz-nz's/ largest online advertising medium for sex workers) or Adult Forum (http://www.adultforum.co.nz/- (http://www.adultforum.co.nz/ -NZ's largest online forum for working girls and clients). As I show my face in my ads and my website (http://www.courtesansboudoir.com/), he might have recognised me or thought I looked familiar and didn't charge my card to avoid issuing a refund.
