An Oil Town Where Men Are Many, and Women Are Hounded
The New York Times ^ | January 15, 2013 | JOHN ELIGON

Posted on 01/16/2013 6:24:45 PM PST by MinorityRepublican

On a dance floor in Williston, N.D., where single men say there are not enough single women.

WILLISTON, N.D. — Christina Knapp and a friend were drinking shots at a bar in a nearby town several weeks ago when a table of about five men called them over and made an offer.

They would pay the women $3,000 to strip naked and serve them beer at their house while they watched mixed martial arts fights on television. Ms. Knapp, 22, declined, but the men kept raising the offer, reaching $7,000.

“I said I make more money doing my job than degrading myself to do that,” said Ms. Knapp, a tattoo artist with dark streaks in her light brown hair, a bird tattoo on her chest and piercings above her lip and left cheekbone.

Christina Knapp said she and a friend received a degrading proposition from some men in a bar.

Eh, not even that hot.

Those boys have a real problem if thats the best they can do out there.

Maybe they need to fly to Nevada once in a while and work that off.

That’s one of the problems with modern day boom towns.
In the old days of the Gold Rush the whores followed the Boom. Today with prostitution illegal everywhere except Nevada only the rich can afford an “escort”.

I’m sure after publishing this story this little town will be overflowing with over-ripe New York chicks looking for love.

Are they sure that these women weren’t just being invited to a Kennedy compound or perhaps Bill Clinton’s hotel room? Maybe it was Al Gore - just looking for a happy ending.

Whoever wrote this article should have been in Saudi in the 60’s when gold was $40/ounce (avoirdupois, that is).

We wore Krugerrands, welded together, as hatbands on our Stetsons and a 22-carat Day-Date, Rolex Watch was $350.

Of course, there were no women anywhere in that part of the world, temperatures were 110 degrees F and one could get rich overnight if one didn’t blow his money overnight.

Such rich irony, I had to double check to see if this was satire:

"“I said I make more money doing my job than degrading myself to do that,” said Ms. Knapp, a tattoo artist with dark streaks in her light brown hair, a bird tattoo on her chest and piercings above her lip and left cheekbone."

Not love; kids. Here on the east coast the shop is closed for most guys in terms of kids. One night stands are done cold sober; our guys are learning.

This is like the NYT sending the “Slut Walk” lesbians in there with crotchless panties saying “Don’t you DAAAAAARRRR tuch muh bodaaay”.

Funny libtards. They’re all for “if it feels good, do it”.......’cept when a lipstick lesbian, in something that would be worn a porno shoot, prances around a bar full or men and dares men to come on to them. Then condemns them if they do.

NOT likely. They work for a living.

Not that I recommend that girls anyway strip naked for a bunch of guys who have been in the desert that long. But I might sell them inflatable babes . ..

She would have had $4000 leftover after the Nose Job.

She looks good enough to win a Golden Globe for starring in an HBO Show called “Girls”.

Yeah, they did, and that was libel. We all know it’s shepherds who act like that. ;-’)

Also, though I never saw it, weren’t they some kind of out of state dudes, rather than real cowboys?

I knew a gal in the mid 50s that was paid $20,000 a year for a maximum of 2 weeks a year with Howard Hughes.

It’s all a matter of price!!!

For a 50+ year-old gal that’s a pretty good price! ;)

And of course with Hughes, she didn’t have to worry about him touching her.

Prostitution is not legal in Las Vegas, nor is it legal in Reno. (Clark and Washoe counties.) Unsure about many of the other, smaller, counties, but the only places it is legal are *some* of the smaller counties. The "cow counties," as we call them.

Just setting it straight. We Las Vegans get rather tired of hearing this kinda thing, and we look upon prostition exactly as you would.

Yes, there are churches here. Real ones. No, we don't live in casinos any more than our European cousins live in their castles.
