You’re on an airplane talking pleasantly to a stranger of average appearance. Unexpectedly, the person offers you $30,000 for one night of sex. If you knew there were no danger and you’d get the money, would you do it? If the payment were meaningfully raised or lowered, at what point would you change your answer?
I mean… There’s an awful lot I could accomplish with an extra $30,000.
But, probably not. Also… this is not a realistic question. I look in the mirror and I am certain that no one would offer me $30,000 for a night of sex.
