How Much Does A Hand Job Cost In Your Hood? (And Other Sex Trade Secrets)

nyc-sex-trade-big
Finally, information we can finally use! Thanks to a sex study by Wired, we know now what the price of a hand job is in different NYC neighborhoods. Let us tell you, the prices are all over the map. Bronx HJ's go for $75 (plus, weirdly, a shot at the bar), a helping hand north of 14th Street will set you back $125, a Chinatown/SoHo happy ending costs $175, while a hand job in Wall Street/Tribeca prices out at an eyebrow-raising $225. The study covers much more than 2nd base, with all the factoids you'd ever need to know about the sex industry....agency prices, prostitute's day jobs, tools of the trade, and the role of technology in changing the game. For instance, 83 percent of escorts have a Facebook page! While it seems kind of gnarly, it's actually an interesting look at NYC's gigantic sex trade. Hand jobs not included. (Wired via Gothamist)
