    If Ashley actually read this I’d want her to know, You said,” I didn’t want to be thought of as a Monster ” People will think want they want, private consensual sex should remain that ( private ) However you wanted to be discovered for your singing, which is more important, so make that more the issue, Your MySpace and all only will make you a Monster for Elliot Spitzer’s family, and detract from your singing, have some respect for yourself, and his kids, close the MySpace down for awhile, You really will perpetuate people to think horrible things about you by not taking the responsibility, to stop all the attention toward You & Spitzer, years from now, those kids will remember what all that they went thru, which will mostly come from your decisions now. I think prostitution should be legalized etc I just hope you do the right thing

    I don’t think a married man with teenage daughters should be hooking up with hookers
    or anyother woman,just my opionion…If he
    were not married and no kids then who cares
    what the man does behind closed doors…Seems
    to me if the man wanted that kind of a woman
    why did he just choose to have a relationship
    with that kind of a woman and leave his wife…
    surly I think he could have with all the money
    he had!

    On another note of the hooker part of this… I for
    the life of me don’t understand why its illegal to
    be a hooker…A woman can go out and give it
    up for free all she wants but if money is given
    to here then its illegal and she is suddenly thought
    of as dirty,or nasty…. Makes no sense to me!!!

    “If people wish to condemn the behavior as immoral and have a good argument to support that view, then they can do do in a rational and justified manner.”

    The problem is, people don’t do that. They condemn the person, not the behavior.

    In reply to cvoja: The mistreatment of women (and anyone for that matter) is morally unacceptable.

    But, most men do not behave that way. To accuse all men for the actions of a few is certainly unfair. I’m not perfect, but I am a decent person and I do my best to treat other people with respect and compassion.

    I agree that there is a horrific problem in the world-the sex trade (including sex slavery) destroys a large number of lives each year. It is most horrible for the women, but it also is bad for the men involved by making them worse as well.

    That horrific business is actually far larger than many might imagine and is tolerated to an alarming degree around the world. The recent case with the governor shows that it is quite active in the United States and quite well known. After all, the ring Spitzer was involved in had a public web site. Things are even worse outside of the United States.

    Lest anyone think I’m some sort of crazy puritan, my opposition is not to sexuality but to the brutality and the way the women are exploited and abused.

    While the woman in question is making a fortune of her new found fame, this is in many ways just another form of exploitation. Of course, the obvious reply is that the money will ease her pain.

    In reply to Stilettos’s reply:

    I agree. What affects only me and no other is my concern and should not be limited by others. Other people can (and should) try to persuade me if they think I am doing something foolish, immoral or harmful to myself. But, there would be no grounds for forcing me to conform to their view of the matter.

    Of course, a person can wrong himself or herself and in that case s/he should not be doing that. But, as Mill argues in his work on Liberty, we are all better off if we allow people freedom and limit the rules of society and public ethics to what is harmful to others. The harms of intruding into freedoms outweigh any good that might be gained by doing so (or so he argues).

    So, if two adults want to engage in activities that some might frown upon, as long as they do not harm others, then it is not the proper business of the law to compel them to do otherwise.

    If people wish to condemn the behavior as immoral and have a good argument to support that view, then they can do do in a rational and justified manner. The right to hold such views is also a valuable freedom.

    Ashley Alexandra Dupree = Sarah Larson
    Governor Spitzer just needed Stan Rosenfield on his side.

    i met a girl who is a celebrity in qeubec. sad. you always note that they swirl around very ugly men,
    men like this hustler male. and yes this usa political male. they underwrite these call girls; they stabilize this industry. he in fact used 100’s of girls in his life.
    these men are responsible worldwide for social crises
    of young men unable to develop relations with own peer group. how are young men to form ability
    to relate to women when such men do this? who knows how far this goes to the young male violence
    worldwide? you old males. keep your hands off. don’t accept those solicitations. and rip apart this
    industry. government cannot make acceptable strides in human rights when your paying them down. no wonder government does NOT work; you dont want to pay the required taxes and defer that money to prostitution. shame on usa and american males generically.

    i saw a girl in edmonton, alberta. you cannot believe! her entire face was stitched…from recent brutality from a male…no home, no one to turn to. because of you males. you killed her.

    I just accidentally deleted my whole response. Bummer.

    “making moral judgments is not in itself a sign of a defect. In fact, a failure to distinguish between right and wrong is a defect.”

    I would add to that “a failure to distinguish between right and wrong is a defect when it personally infringes upon your own rights.” If they guy next door likes to whack off to porn in the middle of the night, it’s not my business. If he’s whacking off in front of my window where I can see him, it becomes my business.

    I do agree, because Spitzer was a public figure and was in the position of making relevant decisions that would affect the lives of others, naturally he should and would come under scrutiny for not holding himself up to the same standards he expected from others.

    In general, what two consenting adults choose to do in the bedroom, illicit or not, is simply not the public’s business and the law should be revised to either decriminalize or legalize personal activities that should not come under scrutiny from outside sources.

    My philosophy is, I do what I do, you do what you do, as long as it doesn’t infringe upon your basic rights and vice versa, then leave each other be.

    If the people who judge stop judging, then people like me will cease to judge the people who judge. lol

    Thanks Mike for participating here. I have to agree with Stiletto. I put up this post because I knew it would attract thousands of people and it has. When the story broke I personally had little interest beyond the fact that Governor Spitzer betrayed and hurt his family and that was wrong. I don’t, however, look down on adults who choose this profession whether illegal in NY or legal in Las Vegas. Where I draw the line is when a person has vowed to be faithful to another and then breaks that vow. Otherwise we’re all consenting adults. Many single men pay for it by buying food and drinks and spending money on movies and other entertainment. I personally have never been involved in these type of activities but that is my personal choice.

    In reply to Stiletto, I agree that the woman’s private life is not our business. Her actions with the (ex) governor are, however, of public concern because of his (former) public position.

    I disagree with what you say about ethics. While judging others based on mere opinions of wrong and right is not warranted, making moral judgments is not in itself a sign of a defect. In fact, a failure to distinguish between right and wrong is a defect.

    Interestingly, you are making a moral judgment by regarding those who judge the woman as being in the wrong.

    Always stupid when Americans obsess over other people’s personal business. Let us just continue to show the rest of the world how socially and intellectually progressive we are, especially when we expect others to conform to our ideas of what is moral and what is not.
