Psychologists from international advocacy groups interviewed 700 men in several countries to learn why they decided to pay for sex. One of the men said, "Prostitution is like masturbating without having to use your hand." "I feel sorry for these girls but this is what I want."
Another said, "Look, men pay for women because he can have whatever and whoever he wants. Lots of men go to prostitutes so they can do things to them that real women would not put up with. "We’re living in the age of instant coffee, instant food. This is instant sex."
"Prostitution is a last resort to unfulfilled sexual desires. Rape would be less safe, or if you’re forced to hurt someone or if you’re so frustrated you j*** off all day."
The most common reason given by men was they bought sex to satisfy immediate sexual urge, reports ABC News .
Nearly 21 per cent of time men wanted to select women with certain physical racial and sexual stereotypes such as being submissive.
Twenty per cent went to prostitutes because they were unsatisfied with their current relationship, while 15 per cent said they went to prostitutes because there was no emotional connection or commitment.
Just 3 per cent of the respondents said they went to prostitutes because of a sex addiction or because they were drunk.
