I'm sure there are prostitutes, but I haven't seen them. At least I don't think I have. lol I wouldn't know where to find them either.

Default Winston

I know where they hang in Winston..but not in Greensboro...my guess is that anywhere there are drugs, there will be prostitution.

You'll be disappointed if your idea of prostitution is what you've seen in movies or on HBO specials. It's nothing like that in most areas of the Triad. The areas where you might find 2 or more women on a corner, etc. are few and far between. Primarily, what one sees in our cities (as far as "street-walking" is concerned) is the occasional hooker hanging on a block or perhaps walking as if she's actually going somewhere. For the most part, we have escorts here (call and meet hookers). They're usually much more expensive (and not necessarily cleaner) than girls from the street (they're typically erotic dancers who turn tricks on the side). We had massage parlors, as well, until a few years ago when the city began requiring a massage therapy license in order to operate such businesses. And then, there's always the internet, which has created a new culture of prostitution that's prevalent everywhere.
High Point has perhaps the highest concentration, followed by Winston and then Greensboro, but I'm not sure that the police depts' records would support that, due to varied emphases on anti-prostitution enforcement between cities. Many of the housing projects around here might have the greatest density of street-walking girls at any given time, but many girls prefer not to work where they live. Escorts and other hookers also spend a lot of time around cheap motels. You might notice them at bus stops near such establishments often.

It's a breeze finding a hooker in Greensboro, just go onto craigslist and go to the North Carolina page. Next click on "erotic" in the services section. There will be a warning about being over 18 and you have to click the erotic link button. Then there will be all the hookers ads. Click on the ones with pictures and they show what they got ! This is the darker corner of craigslist. Under erotic in the "gigs" section there are explicit male photos also and ads for actors wanted for porn production. It's a bit shocking to see them get away with it so easily.

That's the last time I wear such a cheap-looking outfit when I walk down Randleman Rd.
