Nude Housecleaning: Is it Prostitution?

A woman in Omaha, Nebraska has set up a housecleaning service that offers several options: clothed, topless or nude. Neighbors, reporters, and no doubt authorities, are asking if it’s actually prostitution.

Well, here’s a quick answer for you: NO. Prostitution is prostitution. Housecleaning is housecleaning. As far as anyone knows, all these women have done is go into someone’s house and mopped with their chuckerella (thanks, RHNJ!) showing. So, the assumption here is that any time a woman disrobes in the company of a man other than her husband or boyf, it’s prostitution. Quite the leap, I’d say.

I mean, it almost sounds like what they’re saying is that women who are down on their luck can’t use their bodies in a legal way to make money, because it might lead to something illegal. That sounds like a slippery slope to me. Like somehow, something just accidentally winds up in a hole that it wasn’t intended to go in. Woops! Legal to illegal, in the flick of a feather duster.

I think what might surprise a lot of people who automatically equate female nudity of any kind to whoring, is that most women who do any kind of sex work know what they’re doing. It’s not like these ladies wake up one morning and say, “Well, I’m already cleaning houses in my birthday suit. I may as well sign up for a shift at the Bunny Ranch!”
