For big money like that you can get a decent escourt and ask for the full Girlfriend treatment. She'll go out to a restaurant and film with you, listen to. You sympathetically while you bitch about your shitty job and afterwards you can go home with her and have real sex with a real live woman.
The thing is...how is that any different? Really? Sure it is a "Real" Woman but its still entering into a fantasy that you know that isn't true, its still considered sad by people, and you still don't have any real things.
It's actual sex and sex is healthy. It's good againts stress, stimulates cardiovascular activity and reduces the risk of prostate cancer.
There's certainly a very dark side to the sex trade. There are still some reports about underage eastern European prostitutes around here.
High-class escorts are usually another category entirely, though.
I know there's a dark side to the sex trade. I know that shipping women across the world for the purpose is horrible, but I also think that shipping construction workers on indentured-servant contracts to Abu Dhabi is horrible. I think locking women in the brothels is horrible, but I think locking sweatshop workers in on-site barracks is horrible. I think that underage prostitution is horrible, but I think all child labor is horrible. I think that the threat of STIs and violent Johns is horrible, but I think all threats of workplace injury is horrible.
I think it's more the stigma of sex than the plight of exploitation that gets the attention.
I am going to circumvent all that by going back on topic and categorically state that my opinion on the matter that any social contact with a living breathing human far suppasses any simulated contact with a fake human being.
I actually think Japan is a little weird with that, its more shameful to be around an escort then to have these virtual girl things. I don't really know but maybe that might be a big reason why they decide to do that.
Anyway once they get robots you get the sex as well, so technically there would be no difference between the two really.

The particular brand of puritanism which emerges in feminist circles on the subject of prostitution is rather disquieting and, of course, not at all beneficial to the women whose welfare they are ostensibly concerned for. It's much like the Catholic Church approach to combating AIDS.
I think you'll find that prostitutes who've had the misfortune to be raped can readily distinguish between their clients and rapists.

Sexual slavery is different from sex trafficking. The definition of sex trafficking is travel across international border for the purposes of the sex trade and not sexual slavery. Don't let facts get in the way of your agenda though.
Oops this post is incorrect. I got it wrong.

There's plenty of reasons why the sex industry is fraught with peril: Potential for violence. Indentured service contracts and de facto slavery caused by lack of government oversight. The over-representation of women in such an exploitative environment (a trait, consequently, shared by the textile industry). Sex, itself, is not one of them. It's labor, and labor is the act of doing something you don't want necessarily to do for money. The fact that the act in this case is sex does not change that.
