Alexis Wright, the hot Zumba fitness instructor accused of being paid for sex with more than 100 men in Kennebunk, Maine, a small seacoast town, has had her name plastered all over the papers for a week. The sexy woman with the mysterious smile has been the laughingstock of New England, but now the tables are starting to turn. The names of the first 20 men accused of paying Wright for her sexual favors were released.
As they say: heads are about to roll. And you know what? They deserve it. We could argue about prostitution and whether it should be legal all day long. Personally, I think it should. But as long as it isn't, women aren't the only ones whose lives should be destroyed.
How is it fair for Wright to be outed and humiliated on a national stage and not have the alleged doctors, lawyers, politicians, and other prominent citizens who visited her outed as well?
Sure, it's going to ruin marriages and possibly careers, but you know what? You give up your right to privacy when you engage in illicit, illegal activity.
Of course, it's unfortunate all around. But Wright was just running a business. It's an illegal one, sure. But those who frequented her are the real criminals.
Having spent half my life in Maine, I can say the state is rocked by this. Kennebunk, in particular, is a small town in somewhat conservative New England. People are generally private and don't get into one another's business, so this is a shocker to everyone involved.
Still, the unfortunate fact is that prostitution is illegal for both the man and the woman and the men have no more right to privacy than the woman.
This news is going to rock this town, but the men who did it don't have any more rights to privacy than Wright herself.
Do you think the men should have gotten in trouble, too?
