There has always been ways for rich and powerful men to have a little extra nookie on the side. Rank has its privileges, etc.
There has always been ways for men to find sluts. Dance-halls, bars, that sort of thing.
Some time ago (in my early days) I was an oddball mix of so-called Alpha and Beta. Don't take shit, take her out to plays and shows, that kind of thing. One of the girls used to like ballet.
Recently, in my more cynical times, a few women have mentioned that they used to do ballet. It always brings a smirk to my face. (A horrible, horrible sight.)
One girl asked me why I was smirking.
Me: In the old days, ballerinas didn't stand up high and proud. Their heads, eyes, arms were lowered. Do you know why?
Her: No, why?
Me: Because in the old days ballerinas were pretty little whores for the delectation of their patron.
The mixed-up look on her face was priceless.
