    In what industry were you employed for the purpose of sexual exploitation?

    I may have misunderstood you but do you have a problem with those? Me paying to protect my reputation.
    Yes, it seems like extorsion especially in the "me too" movement.
    Could two parties make such an agreement without a lawyer and a court or would that be criminal? Not in theory but in reality.

    Legalized prostitution and drugs would clean up prostitution and make it safer giving many addicts a choice not to sell their bodies.

    The humiliation of being a prostitute or porn actress won’t be eased by legalizing prostitution. Would you like to see your daughter earn her living in that way?

    Two parties have the right to contract without a lawyer. To some extent, it is extortion. However, it is usually a small price to pay instead of having your reputation drug through the mud. I routinely include such clauses in settlement agreements that I write for corporate clients.

    I woudn't. Not because I have a high level of praise for attroneys, though some I do*, but there always exists the possibility that one of the parties will become dissatisfied with the agreement and hire an attorney that will blow holes through that agreement.





    _____________
    *The attorney will remain nameless. Several years ago while in Judge,s chambers doing my thing during the immigration attorney bond hearings the subject came up of a recent incident in a neighboring town where a person had drove his car in the park intentionally ran over a young lady, then backed up and ran over her again. One of the Attorney's present said the court had asked him to defend the person since he was without funds. The Attorney said he refused because he could not in good conscience stand up in court and argue that the person did not know what he was doing at the time.
