That grabbed your attention didn’t it! And no I am not thinking of sending my son to a prostitute. But a man we met in a pub today thought I should!!!
We just went out for a nice quite Sunday pub lunch (well with Cs large stimming and high-pitched squeaks it wasn’t very quite). Whilst he is happily unknowingly entertaining the people in the pub, I bury my head in a suduko trying not to notice the stares and mutterings. He is happy and that is important to me.
A man came over to me and started asking me questions. I don’t mind this at all and wish more people would. He asked the usual questions, but after he asked me Cs age and I told him C was 18. He told me I should pay for him to go to a prostitute and then he might start talking as he would thank me!!!
At this point C realised I was talking to someone and stopped stimming and just glared at me! The man took this as C agreeing to his suggestion! I took this as 'mum if you don’t stop talking to strangers I am going to start hurting myself!'
The man then launched into when he was that age sex was all he could think about. Thankfully (and I don’t often say that) C started to head bang so I made our excuses and left. Even though i was amused, but wasnt sure where his story was going as he had had a bit to drink!! As I got up the man handed me a penny and said it was for luck.
I was quite touched. And not offended as I felt he meant well. That doesn’t happen often.

Crikey, not sure how I'd handle that particular sound like one cool lady!

That guy took the movie Tommy by The Who, the completely wrong way!

Tricky subject. I have a couple of friends who work as escort girls and they have occasionally met disabled clents. One young man with severe cerebral palsy required 24/7 nursing care; his parents vacated the house when an escort arrived.
However, a single meeting might create extra problems; unless you can afford further "appointments".
