Lexington, SC man horrified after booking a prostitute – and his own wife arrived

A 54-year old man in Lexington, South Carolina has made headlines after his attempt to hire a prostitute through an online service ended in a terrible mix-up that will likely cost him his marriage.

The man – who we cannot identify for privacy reasons – had been using the booking website for some months to hire prostitutes and meet them for sex at motels in neighboring areas.

On the most recent occasion, which occurred this weekend, the man told his wife he was going out drinking with work colleagues, when in reality he was travelling to a motel on the outskirts of Lexington.

Upon checking into the motel the man used his phone to access his regular website used to book prostitutes. According to a statement he made to authorities, he saw the profile of a new 26-year old woman who caught his attention.

As with many of the photos on the site, the photo only showed the woman from her neck down, but the man is said to have liked what he saw and he sent her a message to see if she was free later that night. She said she was, and they arranged for a liaison at the motel.

Guests in adjoining rooms called the front desk to report a disturbance at around 8 pm after the woman arrived and found that her client was none other than her husband of the last 17 years.

It emerged that the prostitute – who had advertised herself as ‘an attractive 26-year old’ – was actually the man’s 48-year old wife. She was furious to find her husband in the motel room, although he was equally angry to learn his wife had been advertising her services on a prostitution website.

The husband may now face charges under South Carolina’s tough prostitution laws, which make it illegal to engage in any type of sexual activity in exchange for money or some other form of compensation – even if it is with one’s own spouse.
