From an other thread :
« An activity done regularly in one's leisure time for pleasure. »
Three elements in the definition :
1 in one’s leisure time. That is clearly the case when seeing sex workers ;
2 done regularly. There is space for interpretation here but obviously the more you do it the more the activity is important in your leisure time ;
3 for pleasure. That is the tricky part. Sex is for pleasure indeed. But it fulfills a physical and psychological need. The first time I saw a MP, I must admit it was to fulfill a need more than to the simple pleasure. I was out of a separation and had not had a physical contact with a woman for three mounths. It was a great experience and it took pressure off for a while. To be honest, it was more a necessity than a pleasure seeking hobby. That experience apart, almost every time I saw a sex worker was solely for the pleasure and to get rid of the complexity of meeting girls only for sex.
JJ, in the last 7 years I had sex with sex workers, more with fuck friends and a few with women I fell in love with. Seeing sex workers is certainly a hobby for me, just like meeting friends I made through this hobby.
