LMAO :D

well I dunno either of the categories personally and I am none of them either :P

btw where did u get this quote from ?

*~*{Sameera}*~* said...

I don't think so.There's a price they both have to pay.And I don't think any woman "enjoys" prostitution.Whoever said that was really cynical!

Shrav said...

That quote is excellent and maybe it's true most of the times!


'Unless someone is forced to become a prostitute, which is a common happening in my part of the country'

Priya Joyce said...

about scientists I can say yes but about prostitutes my answer is a big no coz its the situation in which they are makes them do so.

Trinaa said...

omg...i dont know whether to laugh or to feel horrified!!

Dosth said...

Holy Christ..!!

i am not very sure abt scientists but yeah sex workers have a very tough life. i dnt think they enjoy it even a bit. it just becomes a matter of feeding themselves.

and scientists...hmm..cud be...

but look at me..i do wat i really enjoy..i feel like i get paid for playing...

and it cud be for any job..if we enjoy it..and it is what we really want to do...

i have heard that u have to be very lucky to be doing wat u really enjoy...

and sex workers are the poor lot..
there is a book.."the autobiography of a sex worker.."..by Nalini Jameela.

it reveals a lot of the exploitations and pains and helplessness of being a sex worker.

Rajesh said...

Wow!!! That was actually correct.. But their task is different...but accepted, its all about perceptions.....so yeah good..

P.S: My 25th post s awaiting ur visit

ANWESA said...

scientists njoy der jobs,
prostitutes don't.

lukkydivz said...

i am totally innocent and clueless about this :P

mayz said...

scientists maybe...prostitutes noway!!!!

•♥•♥Vicky♥•♥• said...

i second sameera.

Solitaire said...

I do not think that women enjoy prostitution. Sex may be enjoyable but not to the woman who is earning money for it.

Hemanth Potluri said...

the quote is awesome ...but scientists do have enjoyement doin their work..i dont have a view abt the other case..

urs..hemu..

digant sutar said...

I don't have experience about these people but i get paid for doing what i enjoy and i am a painter......

Pranay said...

Not true.....although many people are talking about prostitutes not enjoying but I dont think even all scientists enjoy what they do. Who would want to keep doing one small thing for years on end????

Abhishek Khanna said...

:D :D
i think yes

Anindita said...

All prostitutes don't enjoy the flesh trade!!! It is a common misconception, some do it because they need to; whatever the reason..

Shashank said...

In its present state it looks only half correct as also suggested by many ppl above..
the quote can be changed to -
"Scientist and prostitutes get paid for doing what others enjoy."
:)

humbl devil said...

scientist really do enjoy!!!
and prostitutes dont..as others have pointed out...

∂єяαngє∂ ιnѕαnιту ^.^ said...

LMAO! I wanna know what you think! :D

Aneesh said...

Not really, not all prostitutes 'Njoy or so do i think and sometimes they might not get paid
:)

joiedevivre said...

yeah will reply to all comments in a day or two

busy busy dese days

Sarath said...

Whoaaa...

Mishra said...

There is a difference between the basic principles on which they operate.

You have to find me this "anonymous"-I want to discuss the matter with him.

comfortably numb said...

dunno whether a prostitute actually njoys it???
but thr r also others who get paid for doing wht dey njoy...sportspersons, film critics etc etc

ceedy said...

What makes you think so?

Priyanshu Uniyal said...

For prostitutes i dont think that its a pleasure for them to work on their profession cz every person have a story as well as the circumstances behind his/her life but for scientist yes its true... And if u have come across such a person he/she is surely not "INSAAN" instead is "INSANE...!" Anything u wna share that what make u feel to write this quote?

joiedevivre said...

@ peter
i got dis while searching sumthing abt life of prostitutes

and u dnt need to kno dem to comment over dis..rite?

joiedevivre said...

@ sammy
yeah ders a price dey hav to pay

for scientist its time, life n family sumtime..
n for prostitutes its dere soul..compromise..

Lena said...

50/50, i guess most of them dont.. especially not the prostitutes, they have too much to lose, and when it is lost, it should feel terrible.

Keshi said...

I dun agree :) Scientists mebbe enjoying their jobs but not all prostitutes do...there are many sad stories abt women who had to go into prostituion cos of poverty, abuse etc....


Also alot of other ppl enjoy their jobs, not only scientists.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

And yes whoever came up with that quote is an insensitive and ignorant person.

Keshi.

rantravereflect/ jane said...

no profession can be generalized-
modern prostitutes of today do enjoy what they do, whereas the abducted n forced ones are not blessed with choice..
same with scientists..

but like they say, when ya're raped, you might as well enjoy it.. which is the case with most of our jobs or love lives.. we love it, cos we're doing it even either ways :)

joiedevivre said...

@ shrav

I'll try 2 be truthful said...

I'd actually like to differ
