The subject of prostitution has both fascinated and repulsed society. At times prostitution has been accepted and even honored as a profession for women. Once it was a religious requirement for women to serve as temple prostitutes to earn a dowry prior to marriage.

Early in our history, women who were prostitutes, at one time called courtesans and hetaera, held a unique position in society. They posed for the religious paintings that adorn our museums and churches. And by becoming the wives and mistresses of kings, lesser royalty and powerful clergymen, they were influential in shaping history.

The religious climate of a culture regulates the tolerance or intolerance of human sexuality. The more sexually repressive the climate, the more repressive the legislation becomes that prohibits the offending behavior, which in turn creates the ideal conditions that allow hypocrisy to flourish. With hypocrisy comes the corruption of law enforcement and the legislative and judicial system. From those who preach chastity and virtue from the pulpit and demand laws to punish the sinners, to the law makers to the law enforcers, no one is immune when it comes to lust and commercial sex.

As I have learned from the years of collecting material for this book, regardless of how many times high profile men get caught (cops, politicians and preachers), there will always be more.

In PX3 Online you will find:

  • Articles which will not be included in the book

  • Accessibility to research as it is being done

  • A complete bibliography of books and articles which are referenced in the book

  • Videos and audio interviews with persons involved in some of the scandals
