Cosmopolitan Embraces Life As a Prostitute

Cosmopolitan magazine is embracing life as a prostitute.

As part of its weekly series called “Sex Work,” Cosmo profiles women who have careers in the sex industry. Recently, the magazine’s website featured an article narrated by a woman who works as a prostitute in a legal brothel in Nevada.

Perla, 34, works at Sheri’s Ranch, one of 24 licensed brothels in Nevada. She tells her tale of having worked as a stripper until the recession hit and she then asked herself, “Well, what else am I going to do and how else am I going to make decent money to provide for myself?” The money she made in her past sex work led her to consider Sheri’s Ranch. Once she passed her STD tests and got her “sheriff’s card,” she became a legal prostitute.

She describes her lifestyle:

We have 12-hour shifts: 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., and then 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. We draw for our shifts so you don’t really get to pick. But you usually get what you want because you can switch. We are required to stay a minimum of one week, but I like to come up for three weeks at a time. In my down time there, I either check emails, or go to the gym, or relax by the pool or Jacuzzi. I usually like to go home for about two weeks then come back. I’m single. I truly just desire to stay that way because it keeps me focused. I don’t need any distractions. About half of my family knows what I do for a living. My family is very supportive. They know I’m in a safe place.

Perla’s story and Cosmo’s “Sex Work” series, however, may have William Randolph Hearst–founder of the Hearst Corporation that publishes the racy magazine–turning over in his grave, says Hearst’s granddaughter, Victoria Hearst, who launched the Cosmo Harms Minors campaign in April.

The campaign seeks to get the magazine’s covers behind blinders in stores to protect young children and adolescents from the blatant sexual material. Several supermarket chains and Walmart have thus far agreed to treat Cosmo as “adult material” by keeping its covers away from children’s eyes.

Victoria Hearst tells Breitbart News, “There seems to be nothing too vile, pornographic or vulgar that the women at Cosmopolitan Magazine will not embrace and endorse.”

Hearst continues:

Breaking down Perla’s testimony looks like this to anyone with a moral compass who cares about this poor woman:

  1. Being prostitutes on a “ranch” makes women nothing more than cattle, the madam their owner, and the men they have sex with their wranglers.
  1. Prostitution destroys families by aiding and abetting ADULTERY.
  1. The women at “legal brothels” must see a doctor every week to be tested and certified free of any STDs in order to continue working. However, the male (and occasionally female) “clients” are not tested. Any sick person can walk in and buy a woman, thereby infecting her and all the other men she has sex with that week, including the men’s innocent wives and girlfriends. I’d call that the real “War on Women!”
  1. Subjecting women to daily 12-hour shifts of competing for men, negotiating the price of sex acts, performing those sex acts, and then repeating the cycle over and over is abominable and inhuman!

Hearst says her grandfather purchased Cosmopolitan in 1905 as a traditional family women’s magazine.

On its website, the Hearst Corporation states, “Cosmopolitan is the best-selling young women’s magazine in the U.S., a bible for fun, fearless females that reaches more than 18 million readers a month.”

“It’s become a porn rag, and its editor-in-chief and the authorities at Hearst Corporation pornographers,” Hearst asserts.
