One of the common themes of wall street movies/stories is these guys make all this money and blow it on toys, drugs, and escorts/hookers. I've seen the toys, I've seen the drugs, but the escorts is something I have yet to see first hand.
Now, I don't have many seasoned friends in banking, but I do know someone high up in consulting, and he swears by the escort life style. Essentially, with the hours he works and all the traveling, the hassle of a committed relationship (the checking in, the time commitment, the locked-in-ness) don't appeal to him. Apparently, for $X/hr, he finds himself a nice companion (read: perfect 10) a few nights a month, gets what he wants out of it, and grinds back to work.
Obviously, with age I imagine love and connection take over as the major drivers of relationships, but I am curious if anyone on this forum subscribes to his way of life. In your experiences, is it more myth or common practice?
