Shelling out $200 or more to have sex with a prostitute is an expensive way for men to get their rocks off but it’s much cheaper than getting married, an economist says.
Matthew Barnes of the University of Chicago says it’s pricier by a factor of 10 for men to get sex regularly through marriage than to hire a prostitute on a regular basis.
I believe he is analyzing a problem that doesn't exist. I thought this was familiar but the OP's article is satire based on a real article that talked about the substitution effect between whores and wives.
I remember this article created quite the ruckus and got the media hamster spinning off its wheel.
This is technically correct, but 1) It must be a very materialistic minded man indeed who just wants to have sex and doesn't care about the woman's desire being genuine or not.
