Surprised? Not us

What's the first thing you think of when you hear about a 50-year-old man hiring an escort to "have fun"? If you're anything like us, the thought was "ew" (and yes, we'll have that thought when we're 50 ourselves). Now, what if the man didn't have a much needed tool, and the escort volunteered to get some from her car? Anyone who didn't think she'd take the money and leave, well, you haven't been reading enough of our articles.

But that's not where the story ends. After all, if that was all that had happened, we wouldn't know about it, would we. That's where we learn that the man, after making a number of phone calls to the escort herself, decided to inform a local newspaper and the police about what had happened.

So let's get this right. You order an escort to, um, help you with a little something. She arrives, but you forgot to pick up raincoats for your pal. She takes your money, and then offers to go to her car for the condoms. After the shame of paying an escort and having her basically rob you (after all, she got your money, but you didn't get any service), you only compound your error by letting others know? And you do it because you're worried that she might be doing this to other customers? While it's definitely an honorable position to take (looking out for your fellow sex-deprived man), we're not so sure it's the brightest position to take. After all, by informing the police, you admit to your own plans to break the law. True, you didn't actually commit the deed, but you were definitely a couple of steps beyond the simple planning stage for the crime.

Of course, it could all be worse. Your prostitution ties could surface while you're a governor.
