In “When the Sun Goes Down” the Arctic Monkeys sing about the
unglamorous world of street prostitution where violence lurks just
below the surface “… he’d rob you if he can …” (refering to the
pimp) It is a world in which “there all infected” and girls stand on
street corners, in skimpy clothing waiting for punters. For the song

In “Mirror” the Beautiful South sing about the experience of a prostitute selling sex in a brothel. The prostitute acknowledges that the customers have feelings “… They do have feelings but just right now I feel, a feminine recepticle, that’s just what I am, these things are above us whores. Just a best target practice for a misguided man, these things are above us whores …”. I won’t waffle on any more, here is the song http://www.last.fm/music/The+Beautiful+South/_/Mirror

Brooke was five feet in height with short brown hair and a lovely firm pair of tits. She had wonderful soft skin and spoke with a soft Cornish accent. I found it rather touching and perhaps a little sad that this girl who was more at home in a country village should find herself working as an escort in London.
Brooke had recently returned from travelling. During her time in Australia she had worked in a brothel (brothels are legal there). Her work in a massage parlour had paid dividends as Brooke gave me one of the best massages I’d experienced for a long time. Her hands moved expertly over my body and I could feel the tension of the day slipping away. Brooke had the ability to make me feel horney without touching anywhere intimate so after 10 minutes or so I was ready for sex. The intercourse was pleasurable and unlike some working girls Brooke didn’t try to rush me. The whole experience (the massage and the sex) left me feeling relaxed and happy.
Afterwards we listened to Ed Sheeran. “Do you like Ed Sheeran” I remember asking. Brooke replied that she did and mentioned “Small Bump” and the “A Team” as being among her favourites both of which I like. I felt a pang when Brooke mentioned the “A Team” as the song deals with a prostitute who is addicted to class a drugs (Crack). Brooke was no street prostitute or drug addict but her role as a sex worker did, I believe draw her to Sheeran’s upbeat but, at a fundamental level deeply sad song.
Brooke told me that she was hoping to get work as a carer and that she had a forthcoming interview for a role working with elderly people. I wished her well (and meant it). Long term exposure to sex work is, I believe no life for anyone.

“Into Temptation” by Crowded House is one of my all time favourite songs. It speaks of the conflict between what one knows/feels is right and the overpowering desire to fall into temptation “right where you belong”.
“As I turned to go you looked at me for half a second with an open invitation to go into temptation”! Absolutely brilliant. Again “the guilty get no sleep in the last slow hours of morning” speaks for itself. If you haven’t heard this song I suggest you check it out. It is on Crowded House’s album “Recurring Dream”.
