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

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

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

Buyer beware.

I ain't giving her 65 dollars unless she buys food with it.

Get a sammich and a glass of milk bitch!
I would happily rail that skinny skank just to feel my cock xylophoning up and down her spine as I'm plowing away. Yum!
