if someone asked you to have sex with them for money, how much would it take for you to say yes?

for arguments sake, let's assume the person is not ugly and has a clean bill of health.

how much would it take? be honest.

There is a cost to all things, and many of them are not monetary. The psychologic impact has to be taken into account. Anyone can say a billion dollars, but the question that will always linger is that you have placed a price on yourself that was never there, made yourself a commodity rather than an individual. How do you price a personality? Is there a monitary value to friendship, should there be?
I hate psychology :P.
I hope you are doing well.

they do say everyone has a price.
in my case, it's not money.

the threat of death to a family memeber or really close friend would get me to say yes.

Random answer:
If there was no threat of death to a family member the answer would be "NO" inspite of the amount of money. If there is a real need for money, well, still it would be a thing to think twice about. There is always a choice.

The problem with a threat like that is that it is no longer a consentual act and becomes rape.
The issue with money is that you are purchasing consent without force, so the two questions are mutually exclusive.

The question that has not been answered or discussed is not for life or death of a loved one, but how about for a diamond ring, or other socially acceptable forms. People would outright bauk at the idea that they would accept money for sex, but then ask them would they sleep with someone after recieving a gift from them and many say sure, and many times the yes depends on the cost of the gift.

The problem also lays that we socially have accepted sex as a reward to good behavior, whether man or woman, rather than a form of expression between two people.

Just my tired thoughts.

I'm siding with the other posters here - I wouldn't do it for money, I guess I would do it to save somebody's life - but then afterward I would have them arrested for rape. If I knew who they were.

See the thing is, if I was single, and some attractive person with a clean bill of health wanted to have sex for free, I'd do that. I'd RATHER do it for free than get paid...otherwise my dignity just goes down the tubes...

Is any amount enough?

I have been asked that question so many times... I guess I would answer that, I am in a happy relationship and would not jepodise that for anything... my partner said we could make an amount and he would agree to have me do it for the money... But I doubt I could be happy having done that... having been in a relationship where my partner cheated and having cheated in the past... I can say name your price cause for me... it's invaluable...

I don't even know how I got in your LJ! How are you?!!

Hey man thanks! That's really sweet!

That's a great piece of advise from a guy I totally just *met* and don't know! More strangers should be like you!

:) Cheers!

Not ugly, clean, and willing to sleep with me? I wouldn't need money.

Am I the only person who says that?

Woah. I'm impressed with the replies. I don't know what I would do. Too many things to factor in. How much (I was thinking Bill Gates kind of money)? Bill seems to be doing pretty good things with his money, so why would I want the responsibility of it for the price I'd have to pay? Nah. I wouldn't do it.

My answer is nothing. Sex is something that is shared by 2 people, hopefully likeing each other in the sex act

First, the question reminds me of that movie "Indecent Proposal" with Demi Moore & Robert Redford. Did you see it? :)

Second...once a person puts a price on themself (their heart, their affection, their soul) they -from that point on- know what they are WORTH. There is no turning back from it, I would think, except to say that it was a costly mistake. (like in the movie.)

If you give yourself, it should be freely, from the heart.

Am I a dreamer or what :]
