Curious about using paid sex as a temporary respite for my current situation...multiple questions within
This is more or less a follow-up to an earlier question
I started about handling loneliness/inexperience and lack of intimacy. Sorry for the complexity, but this seemed the easiest way to follow up.
So first off, the move I was anticipating happened and I ended up relocating very recently to Asia (South Korea to be more precise). Now that I'm getting settled in, I would like to get back to trying to fix things, but had some further questions.
The general consenus (which I agree with wholeheartedly) seems to be that:
Therapy might be a good idea
I need to make more friends and expand my social circle
I need to get my first experiences out of the way ASAP, so I can stop obsessing about when it'll happen, if I'm any good, etc
I'm working on 1)
- I have numbers for English-language therapists in town, I just haven't been able to get in for an appointment yet. I guess 2)
could take a while, as is usually the case when people move to a new town. I know integrating yourself into a new social fabric takes time...
however is the main reason I posted this. I've been giving it a lot of thought and am starting to think that going the, ah..."paid services" route might not be such a bad idea after all. While having to pay for my first time isn't something I'm crazy about, I wondering if the temporary relief of finally
getting laid and past that first-time virgin awkwardness might be worth it. Of course I could be wrong, particularly given the stigma our society has unfortunately attached to this sort of thing. Therefore I'm open to any thoughts/insight on whether or not this is a good idea...
Last but not least: how exactly do I go about doing this? Is there like a website or something you can consult? My understanding is that prostitution in this part of the world is a bit of a paradox: very much in existence (probably more so than in the U.S.), but also an underground phenomenon off-limits to most foreigners like me. I know there are also a few areas in Asia that might be more accessible/legal (Hong Kong for one?) but that's about all I know. Maybe someone else can offer insight? I should have a week of vacation coming up later this summer, so local travel within Asia is an option.
