Call Girl Confesses: Sex At Exclusive Denver Club

New member of the Don Dennis HOF?

The call girl, who spoke exclusively to KCNC-TV, said that on numerous occasions, women from the prostitution agencies were called to attend late-night parties at The Denver Club, a plush squash and social club located on the top two floors of a downtown skyscraper.

She said the women were paid around $2,000 to have sex with numerous men. Asked who the men were, she said they were “business guys, rich businessmen.” She said participants in the parties snorted cocaine and had sex throughout the club.

...But the woman said downtown lawyers, money managers and businessmen were just part of the clientele. She said “doctors … general contractors … professional athletes” also patronized the prostitution service, which usually charged about $300 for an hour of sex. “Nuggets basketball players … Arizona Diamondbacks … Rockies baseball players” and some Denver Broncos were customers she said.

I guess this is one of those "Guess the players involved" threads. It will be all too easy for most of us to pick the most Christian of the Christians on the Rockies, so I'll instead go with Willy Taveras. He just seems shady, and that's good enough for me.

On the D-backs? Micah Owings swings a big stick. Gotta be him.

You know what makes me scratch my head? Pondering why a multimillionaire athlete would pay for sex from a prostitute when he could just wander to any college and find more girls willing to give it to him free than he could possibly handle, and almost certainly more attractive ones. I suppose it's because they figure a prostitute's much less likely to talk about it to people, which tends to cause it to end up in the newspaper or getting back to your wife.

I'd say it also has to do with schedules. I wonder if the Rockies will make a big deal out of this--statements by Monfort, somebody getting released with a contract voided, etc.

That was exactly my thought, Justin. There's also the fact that prostitution is illegal, while picking up coeds is not.

On the other hand, the old saying is that you're not paying a prostitute for sex, you're paying her to go away after it's over.

I'm not sure which is preferable in that regard--state universities with low admission standards, or Catholic/Jesuit universities with (purportedly) high morality standards. Speaking strictly on the basis of my own observations, of course.

Whoever mentioned the bars is obviously right but even if an athlete really wanted, for some reason, to go to a frat party I'm sure he could just walk down frat row til he found a place and be let in if he plays for some pro team.

You don't think the UC-Boulder ATOs wouldnt be psyched about partying with Jay Cutler?
Hell even if it was some no-name backup a pro athlete would be let in to hit on the sorositutes just bc the guys inside would think it was cool if they had athletes partying with them

This was a lot more true 30, 40 years ago than it is today. Your average college student is an avid reader of Cosmopolitan, Glamour, etc., and gets plenty of practice.

Also, I think you are overestimating how easy college women are.

I assure you that I'm not. At a reasonably large college, I could pick up a girl of at least average hotness twice a month, and you may rest assured I've nowhere near the attractiveness, the fame or the wealth of a professional athlete. That's just the way the world is these days; I don't think anybody finds this offensive or scandalous anymore.

This reminds me of the time a few years after college when I read a magazine article about the commonness of \"#########\" arrangements in college. Having never heard of, let alone had opportunity to try, the concept greatly pissed me off.

Then again, I think you have to have at least half a clue to pick up women, and during college I was probably well below a quarter.

Some friends (mixed company) and I ended up at a Loyola U-area bar a couple weeks ago after dining out. I was amazed by (1) how young the coeds (and guys, for that matter) looked, and (2) how forward they were. Made me feel very old and very young at the same time.

Just for the record, but I'm not saying I did; just that I could have. I was never especially interested in the drinking-and-sex-centered life of the typical college student. But I knew plenty of guys who were, er, less qualified than myself that were quite successful at it.

I don't know how long ago you went to college, but times changed very fast over the past fifteen years or so. As for the ######### arrangements spoken of, there really is no 'arrangement' anymore. If you feel like having sex, you just go to a party and find somebody agreeable. It's not difficult.

In the 30-odd to almost 40 years ago that I "blutoed" my way through college, there were two main differences to what I see today.
1. The 3 Penn State campuses that I attended were at least 70% male, and a lot of girls were faithful to some joker back home.
2. Virginity was not unheard of or short of that, most girls were pretty careful about their reputations. There were a couple of girls known for being easy hookups, but that was their only way of attracting boys, if you get my insensitive drift. I was the original Mister High Standards. :)

Am I jealous of the present? Sure, a bit, but I have my life to lead in my time and I'm thankful for that.

Also, I thought this section from the article was priceless:

She said at one late-night party at The Denver Club, some of the call girls discovered a robe belonging to Mayor Hickenlooper hanging in the club's locker room. The name "Hick" is monogrammed on the robe. She said several of the girls wore the mayor's robe and "roamed around in it, thought it was cool to have the mayor's robe on." Asked how she thought the mayor would feel about that, she said, "He probably wants to get a new robe."

Penn State is precisely the college I attended, and I live in Altoona, home of their largest branch campus. Penn State is now about 55% female, and faithfulness to somebody back home rarely outlasts the freshman year. Usually it doesn't outlast the first semseter. Virginity is basically unheard of now.

Yeah, I assume that's the main reason prostitutes still get business from major leaguers.

Even so, for all but the biggest superstars, you can go to a college and find a girl with ease without anyone ever finding out who you are. Professional athletes tend to be well above the ambient standard of attractiveness for college girls.

I don't know how long ago you went to college, but times changed very fast over the past fifteen years or so. As for the ######### arrangements spoken of, there really is no 'arrangement' anymore. If you feel like having sex, you just go to a party and find somebody agreeable. It's not difficult.

Graduated in '93. ::sobs::

That said, I had a couple of, ahem, "good years" after college, including what amounted to an f-buddy deal with my sister's roommate for about 6 months. Good times.

So I'm whining, but I really don't have any good reason to. :)

I graduated around the same time and share your pain. The transformation of college girls into pr0n stars happened after we were too old to really take advantage of it, but before we were too old to not care.

Back in my day we had to WORK to trick girls into sleeping with us. Uphill. In the snow. Both ways.

There is a girl who went to college with my brother who in the past few years has bedded both a member of the Twins and the Minnesota Wild. The Twin was married, not sure about the hockey player.

Suddenly, I'm wondering if Nick Punto meant something else when I heard that he just wanted respect.

.

In "Ball Four", Bouton quotes a triple A manager's pep talk. Something along the lines of "you guys don't know how close you are to major league #####"


Hell, if that won't get you to take extra ground balls, nothing will!

One thing about promiscuity, though. It gets old awfully fast. Unless I really liked someone, I never slept with them more than once.

This I do understand, but I probably would have called b.s. if I hadn't had that feeling a few times myself.

Though I still question the wisdom of not calling the 19-year-old stripper from Ecuador back to set up another go-round.

Instinctually, I would say that was a mistake, but my go-round with a stripper landed me in a doctor's office, so I'm wary of strippers.

I graduated in 99 (more 00 though), at what is probably considered the most prestigious universtity in Canada. I am no stud, did quite poorly in high school with women, yet had an "active" social life. At one point I began to "date" several woman at once for several monthes, being completely up front and honest about the whole thing. It worked well until I "dated" a housemate's ex, and then soon after a housemate. It all fell apart when she (the housemate) convinced me the world of monogamy was a wonderful thing, and that killed the last 2 years plus of my dating life at school.

I, however, was never able to just go to a party and pick up. Maybe I wasn't aggressive enough, or good looking enough, or acted the "right" way but I needed to meet a girl multiple times to close the deal. Of course, drunken parties did facilitate that.

Are you out of you mind, son?

Every woman is at least a little bit different, has a different story, a different taste and different tastes, a different feel... Let me put it to you this way--you like trying out different restaurants, don't you? There are hundreds of cuisines to try, and they're all worth trying. You don't get bored going to different restaurants, and a woman is a far more interesting experience than a restaurant.

That swelling sense of eagerness, when you know it's very likely to happen, when there's far too much blood in your body... how does that ever get "old"?

Yeah, I didn't catch anything (sheathed all the way), but her repeated pleadings to forego said sheathing over the course of two evenings was nerve-wracking, and probably a big part of why I didn't call her back.

But...lord.

No matter how good the restaurant it doesn't touch really good home cooking.

Thrilling certainly. But dangerous to your health.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

At my school I picked up, but it was way way harder than Justin has made it out to be (He went to PSU though, I went to W & L where most of the school dresses and acts like it's still the 80s) and it is (on top of the normal flirting, not being obvious and having a reasonable place to take her) a matter of giving the girl enough reasons/points to defend herself when she has to talk to her friends the next morning. At least, that's what I think it is.

That's why I left California...

Seriously, I can't believe that the general sentiments in this thread are true. I mean I went to college in the late 1970s and things were not like that, to put it mildly. Hell, I didn't get kissed until I'd graduated from college.

I'm sure different people handle it differently, but more than once I got this really uncomfortably empty feeling after the fact. Enough to blunt what was fun about it.

Speaking of promiscuous oversexed young men, I was hoping to hear from Eric Gagne Primate in this thread.

It's a good and a bad thing that my grandsons share their life tales with their grandfather. It's a good thing in that at times I can impart some wisdom to keep them from making an obvious mistake. The bad thing is that I get to be flabbergasted at the nature of "hooking up". At least that is the phrase being used.

Initially I understood it to be "meeting someone" or "hanging out". Only later did they explain that hooking up can also mean highly casual s*x. As in meet, bed down, and catch you later bye.

To kevin's point it is a given that young men always talk a good game. But having literally stumbled across my one grandson in the act of "hooking up" (at a family function no less!) I have to give them some degree of credibility.

You know what she was doing there, don't you, Benji? She was trying to get you to knock her up so she could get permanent residency and, perhaps, a meal ticket as well.

That thought did occur, but I didn't make much coin and I don't think she thought I did (she paid for the hotel). Plus I don't know what her residency status was. It seemed more like naivete -- like maybe she was on the pill and didn't really worry about STDs. But maybe that's just my naivete. :)

The third line doesn't quite jive with the first two.

I wasn't sure myself if he was being clever, profound, or unclear. :)

Well, like Harvey I've been a one-woman man and I have to say, it takes time to learn to hit all the right buttons--it's a blast to learn and once you've mastered that you take it to the next level. Yes, there are levels and you need to be with your partner a long time to learn how.

20 years married come April and it ain't old by any stretch. Mad Dog 20-20 will give you a quick rush but an aged wine is savoured for a long time.

(In case my wife lurks here ...I'm the aged one 'kay?)

This calls for a Chicago meet-up!

Well, we've been known to hold those now and again...

Though I don't believe we've ever chosen a college bar as the venue.
