umm...where did that come from? The impression I got from the OP is that her son's dad is really pushing the "let's go get you a hooker" thing, not that her son is driving this. "Does he not feel up to the challenge?" WTF? There's absolutely nothing in the OP that tells us anything
about her son's interactions with women, except that his dad
thinks he should see prostitutes. To say this has more to do with the dad than the son is strange. He may not even want to go and is feeling pressured, or like his dad will think less of him if he doesn't. Sure - 18 is old enough to understand the issues, but it's still pretty young when it comes to standing up to a parent.
OP: I think the other posters are right. All you can really do is talk toy our son about STDs and the exploitation that exists in the sex industry. He's going to make his own decisions, and you and your ex can only put forth your viewpoints. Good luck. This sounds like a real problem to deal with.
