I know that there is already a thread about Golddiggers on this forum, but I wanted to bring up this topic. Basically my friends and I were arguing about women who mostly hang out with guys for their money/power and develop relationships with these successful men. One of my friends said that if a man with money is in a relationship with a girl who likes to spend the guy's money on clothes, cars, and other gifts, then that girl basically a prostitute. The women in our group mostly disagreed with this, but some actually agreed with this notion. The situation with Tiger Woods was brought up as well, and we all pretty much agreed that the women who cavorted with Tiger were pretty much all prostitutes to a degree, because Tiger Woods is the wealthiest, most powerful sports star out in public today and he is not a guy blessed with good looks.

What are you thoughts on this topic? Do you think that Golddiggers are really the same as prostitutes? Or are they different from prostitutes?

Of course there are differences such as the obvious. Hookers have a more likely chance of having the HIV, herpies, crack/heroin addiction, etc.

However, when mentioned by their profession, they are both whoring themselves out for money. I think it can be summed up by acknowledging that there are high class and low class hookers.

Golddiggers live with their Johns
Golddiggers get free health-care (inc but not limited to regular pap smears), clothing, room & board, food and a sizable Travel Expense account
Golddiggers work for their cars, not in cars
Golddiggers get primped and not pimped (I think?)

Those are just some I can think of right now.

Gold-diggers are more likely to think they are better than hookers.

Hookers are more honest and less likely to hurt people with their selfishness.

Personally, I'd rather have a hooker in the family than a gold-digger.

Gold diggers usually get more repeat business and they sometimes get paid for not doing anything at all.

They're different from prostitutes -- they don't have the integrity that prostitutes have. At least prostitutes tell you up front what they're really after.

A golddigger stays, a prostitute comes and then goes.

You pay the prostitute for sex. You pay a gold digger, and you STILL might not get any sex.
