    >Roman Times

    High End Escort: 3 - 4 denarious = 0.14 gold aureus (0.04 ounce of gold today or $63 in today's gold price)
    Medium End Escort: 15-16 Asses = 1 denarious = 0.04 gold aureus (0.011 ounces of gold today or $18 in today's gold price)
    Low End Street Whore: 5-6 asses = 0.34 denarious = 0.014 gold aureus (0.0038 ounces of gold today or $6 in today's gold price)

    >18th Century England

    High End Escort/courtisan: 2 guinea (0.5 ounce of gold today or $800 in today's gold price)
    Medium End Escort: 20 shillings = 0.67 guinea (0.189 ounces of gold today or $302 in today's gold price)
    Low End Street Whore: 5 shillings = 0.16 guinea (0.045 ounces of gold today or $60 in today's gold price)

    >Today

    High End Escort: USD $600 2011 Inflation adjusted (0.38 ounce of gold today)
    Medium End Escort: USD $250 inflation adjusted (0.15 ounces of gold today)
    Low End Street Whore: USD $65 inflation adjusted (0.038 ounces of gold today)

    So what's the deal with the secular trend towards more expensive pussy relative to gold?

    The diseased ones are a bit cheaper. But, you do run the risk of having your dick fall off.

    Buyer beware.

    I would happily rail that skinny skank just to feel my cock xylophoning up and down her spine as I'm plowing away. Yum!

    Nope, you give her 65 bucks, she is getting a few hits, not food.

    Hence the reason there's no way she'd ever get 65 bucks from me.
