I'd like to say no, but there may be a time in my life someday when I haven't had anyone in years, haven't had a friend or family contact in years. Honestly, after my parents are gone, I really will have no one. So it's possible that after years of that, I'd consider it. I probably wouldn't do it though because I'd be too ashamed.
As for what I think of it - it's incredibly sad. I think people are feeling more and more isolated and lonely and more and more people are becoming desperate for a little tenderness. Many people don't have that in their lives and they feel paying for it is the only option. I feel awful for them, I want to hug them for free just because they feel that way. What an awful feeling.4
