I get it! It’s right there in your first post.
You want overt contracts. You want legal sex work, because covert contracts “aren’t working so well these days”. That was your whole point.
I think that’s a good idea, too. There would be fewer people running around with misdirected anger and a dangerous sense of entitlement toward sex, and also fewer people being raped behind dumpsters and assaulted in hotel kitchens.
We are all just trying to get our own needs met.
I agree. Overt contracts are a way better idea than covert ones. Works much better.
