Reasons why... I disagree... the only reason that _I_ am exploring "it" is because of lack of such at home. I don't want to "chase" anyone... I want the encounter to be as simple and as straightforward as possible. Take care of my need and I'll take care of yours, that is it. If I know your name that is fine but I don't need to. I will/would be very nice/kind/respectful so no one should think I am a jerk to a/the girl but again the only reason I think of this as an option is to take care of a need... is because it is not being taken care of at home. Unfortunately that is the only real negative in my home relationship. IMHO if someone was interested in "the chase" they would be out to bed a girl w/o exchanging any $, they would try to do it on their looks, wit or charm. Involving $ makes it pretty straightforward and again IMHO takes any sort of "chase" out of it. As for "the thrill"... I'll race cars or go skydiving when I want a thrill. I'll exchange a need for a need when I am too tired of taking care of my own need with my hand, especially when I have had to take care of myself more often then not for the last several years. Excuse me now while I go for a walk on 6th Ave towards Times Square... (I apologize if I am not using correct terms, etc. I am new to this site).
