...It's Sanji...since when is he not popping out heart vs pretty girls? It doesn't have anything to do with geisha as a job. He's fawning over Robin's look regardless if it's bikini or geisha or policewoman roleplay LOL
If you just want sex for the sake of it then sure, no skill needed, just instinct...I mean what skill does being a cook even require? If you just want something edible some salt and boiling water for a piece of meat suffice...but actual good sex?
And courtesans are high-class prostitute who don't just fuck. They know how to play musical instruments, dancing and stuffs to entertain, too. Those require skills.
LOL what? When you have powerful men (or women) wrapped around your finger, earning incomes several times that of ''normal'' people's and can even pick your customers etc...? Just like any other profession, it's just a matter of how good you are. A struggling artist living in poverty may paint a bad idea about art profession and make you hesitate to choose that job but one out of 10000 can be Oda or Kubo who earns a shit load of money because, well, they sell. Similarly, sure, some dirt-cheap prostitute for $10/shot in some slumdog area sure is not a desirable life but when you're the most beautiful and sought-after whore in the country and powerful figure want you and PAY for you luxurious life...hahahaha.
I mean rose-tinted glass view on one end and harsh reality on the other exist for nearly everything.
That can be subjective. Some conservative parents look down on perfectly normal jobs if it earns little or not very good for their face and push their children towards careers like doctor, engineer etc. only. The so-called prestige profession. At the same time there are people who support their kids no matter what as long as they don't do something illegal and self-destructive. And as I said, it is also culturally specific. Some countries are overall more open-minded than others, or hell they can be more open-minded in this aspect but not others.
Clearly prostitution or porn star are legal in a lot of places and while they aren't free of danger (drug, rape etc.) but again, it's just a matter of how good you are. Being at the top of your field and you got the say and power to be safe LOL.
At the end of the day like it or not is personal preference but there's literally zero logical and sound argument why being prostitute itself is bad, at least bad enough to make it some evil job one should avoid. All the shitty things about it has more to do with operation and not the idea of providing a service in exchange for money which is the same as a lot of other things in this world, only suddenly if the product is sex it is bad...
You think? I guess I could see that but typically it was when nami and robin (and earlier vivi) would uncover their breasts was when hearts jumped into his eyes.
I don't know how to tell you this..... but... must guys pick hookers based on how they look, not rumors about how well they play the flute
"Hey captain, I know you are exclusively interested in <5ft white girls with large breasts green eyes, blond hair and with a beauty mark near their left eye or left lip, but that 6ft5 small breasted black woman makes really good conversation"
You see how ridiculous that is?
Ya I am sure that's what the girl from the hotel was thinking right before Kareem hunt kicked her.... "got this rich man wrapped around my finger" (that's not the actual story but you get the point right?) The point is you are offering very little compared to what they offer, that rich and powerful man could turn on you as fast as we turn on songs or TV shows that gets boring. Hell the only reason most of us are still reading op is because there are mysteries we want to find out, whereas don't offer those, whereas get full like a song you hear too many times on the radio and better wheres come along.
2 things about this
1 I would rather be the rich and powerful person, not the dude/groupie who hangs around the rich and powerful person, and I think most people agree on that. What you describe is literally aspiring to always leach off the more successful.
2 we wont see this in fantasy op, but in the real world prostitution is a buyer's market. There will always be a better looking one right around the corner. When that 35 year old cant find time to charge you 400$ an hour there is a 22 year old around the corner who is better in nearly every way(less worn out).....except maybe she doesn't sing as well.....
So I think your entire "rich and powerful men wrapped around your finger" analysis is wrong on many levels.
As for the "some jobs are looked down on because they make too little" ya ok maybe that is a little subjective but I think there is one profession that we can all, every one of us, agree that if our 12 year old daughter told us they wanted to do we would all object. There is no way in hell any parent would ever be happy at their young child training to be a whore.
Lol "illegal and self destructive" prostitution is both of those.
