Prostitution Sting Johns: The Oddly Haired, the Wife-Fearing & the Guy Who Wants the Party to Keep on Going

Categories: Crime

It's just like this, right?
The Harris County Sheriff's Office decided to get in the way of working women on their way to a master's in geopolitics by having itself a prostitution sting Tuesday.

This time they weren't after the master's students hookers, they were after the johns.

The operation focused on suspects soliciting sex online. Female undercover deputies advertised as escorts on the internet and arranged for solicitors to meet them at a prearranged location in north Harris County, off of I-45 North and Beltway 8.

Once suspects arrived and made an agreement with the undercover deputies to receive sexual services in exchange for money, they were arrested.

Arrested, if the mugshots are to be believed, were a) Men with strange hair-dos, b) Men in shell shock about what they're gonna tell the little lady about the night's adventure, and c) a guy having the time of his life.

You never know what your next (alleged) customer is going to look like. But the sheer professionalism of the female HCSO deputies is awe-inspiring -- they were able to concentrate on their job even as these studlies were talking sex with them.

Brava, HCSO deputies.

Wonder how much man hours this took, while "sensual massage" and "thai/oriental/relaxation massage" and other blowjob clinics all around town receive no scrutiny from HPD.  

Also none of the Korean gambling parlors off of Gessner and 610 ever seem to get busted.


Waste of time and money. Stop picking on the sex trade HPD; worry about violence, theft, kidnapping  and crime that actually matters


@Klevenhag Picking on?  Really?  Prostitution is illegal and no matter how much you seem to think it is a crime that 'doesn't matter' it is still a crime.  From the sound of it you must frequent prostitutes and have been cited and/or arrested.

Pimps AND johns can be kinda violent. Those professionals have been known to steel and set johns up for robbery. Many girls were pressed into the "work" force by less than reputable recruiters, eg kidnapping. In fact when you consider the drugs, assault, and murder surrounding this "trade," I kinda figure it does actually matter.


@MadMac  Chocolate makers and Good Humor Ice Cream men have been known to be violent. Restaurants and doctors have been known to rob customers by padding their bills. Many teenagers are forced to work by their parents. 

Women in the sex trade almost exclusively choose to do it, under some hard-scrabble circumstances, I grant you. They do it for some good money. Johns, as you say, choose to frequent them. For some good release. It's really not a big deal. It's a mutually consensual business. Forget the other bogus arguments and just say you think it's immoral.


@MadMac  ...and stretching your point to its logical conclusion, we should ban cars because they are almost always involved in the commission of crimes.

There are laws against drugs. Laws against violence and robbery. Don't conflate them with prostitution, and the very real supply/demand for sex that fosters it.

Nah, I leave morality to the preachers this is a matter of public safety and public health. Taking your argument to the logical conclusion, society should neither inact, nor enforce any law, 'cause somebody's just gonna break 'em anyway. And, hey there's 'good money' to be made, right? Have fun with your libertarian-s3xploitation fantasies.
