Are there any streets in NY, where people can find hookers, standing on the streets, or hookers use to offer their services in advertisements by an internet or some kind of a newspaper. How much does average prostitute cost? Please be so kind to tell me more interesting things about this kind of intertainment in the NY.

I think it's a good question. The whole world looks without any prejudice or disgust at this phenomena. The US is one of very few developed countries where it's illegal to have sex with someone for money - even in the privace of your own home (both can be charged with either "soliciting a prostitute" or "prostitution"). It's not really the Land of the Freein that sense. In Canada, street prostitution is illegal. However, what your do in your private home with your escort friend is no concern of their enforcement agencies (that's why Toronot's Yellow pages have more escort ads than probably any other Yellow Pages directory, especially for the city of that size).
It's my understanding that in New York, most of the action is limited to Escort Services and other "workers" that advertise in Village Voice, New York free press and other publications of the same kind - and obviously on the internet. It's not legal, but I am sure it's widespread. If you do a search on Goodle for "Escort New York", you'll get a lot of hits...

If you want a whore go the city's redlight districts. I dont really know all that many because I have no buisness there, Long Island City and 8th Avenue are established districts though. Just look for girls standing in scantly clad clothing outside an adult shop, those are whores...

Canned Oxygen Could be the Next Bottled Water

Bottled water became one of the most profitable drink products in the United States, selling for a dollar or more per bottle. All of this, despite being available in nature and only costing pennies from your tap. Many will argue that the water from your tap is just as “pure” as most bottled water as well.
Bottled water has become a $9 billion dollar industry in the US alone; a country which has plentiful sources of potable water. With all of this money being thrown around, businesses are now looking for other free commodities that can be slickly packaged and sold for a profit.
Ever since you were born, you’ve been breathing oxygen for free, Right? Well the masters of mundane marketing agree that it is time for you to adjust your thinking. Yes, you can breathe air for free; but how lame is that? Naturally occuring oxygen is just so 10,000 years ago. It’s time for you to begin breathing more pure, more refreshing oxygen.
It All Begins with Oxygen Bars
The idea for selling a more pure oxygen to consumers who wish to revive their spirits isn’t exactly a new one. Several years ago, trendy nightclubs began offering “oxygen bars” which allowed patrons access to fresh oxygen via a breathing tube. Customers pay for a five minute session or so, in which they are able to relax and breathe the clean air. Many feel that it lifts their spirits and helps them to relax, allowing them to better enjoy their nightclub experience. The whole “oxygen bar” scene has expanded into a trendy, social experience. Nightclubs featuring oxygen bars are considered to be the cream of the crop and are the destinations of the more stylish, sophisticated crowd.
Distributors have seen this fad unfold and are now ready to cash in on bringing this delightfully melancholy experience to us all. Their goal is to bring the power of canned oxygen to local grocery stores and convenience marts everywhere. For a few bucks, you can carry around your own personal cache of clean air. You may be wondering, Why would I pay money for a small can of oxygen?
Here Comes the Science
Research has been conducted “claiming” that pure oxygen has several endearing qualities, the most beneficial being its energy giving properties. It is believed that a brief blast of pure oxygen allows you flush some of the impurities from your body, clear your mind, and eliminate some of that sluggish feeling that many of us have. Manufacturers are betting that a sluggish feeling public will line up for such a product. They believe that the possibilities are endless and that an entire range of demographics will use the product. Young people at an all-night rave will go for it (mostly for fad reasons) to give their alcohol a little push and the hope that the refreshing characteristics will help them avoid a severe hangover. Athletes can us it to overcome fatigue during a work-out or sporting activity. People with jobs that require acute focus on a task may try to give their brains that little shot of O2 to help them concentrate. Students taking their ACTs or SATs may do the same. For that matter, people may begin to believe that it could cure them of whatever it is that ails them.
Some doctors call it a sham. Pure oxygen, they say, does nothing to cleanse your body. And it can be harmful - particularly for people with severe lung diseases like emphysema. people with severe lung disease often lose the ability to respond to the carbon dioxide “signal.” Their bodies only tell them to breathe when they need oxygen. Give them pure oxygen and their bodies think they don’t need to breathe. So they don’t. Their cells fill up with toxic carbon dioxide, which can lead to death. Even if you don’t have a severe lung problem, breathing pure for an extended period of time can be dangerous. After 24 hours, it can cause fluid to build up in your lungs, leading to lung collapse. Astronauts are able to overcome this due to the extremely low pressure of space, as well as a delicate balance of air mixes and breathing systems to cycle their intake of oxygen as well as other gases. Scientists do point out, though, that a typical dose - say, 20 minutes at the bar or a blast from a portable can - probably won’t cause any harm.
Now Available in all Sorts of Fruity Flavors
As far as the “new” canned oxygen product goes, it’s not just plain ol’ pure oxygen. You don’t think that marketers would attempt to sell oxygen in a can without spicing it up and making it a bit more “extreme”. Why breathe flavorless, odorless oxygen; when you can breathe “Mountain Breeze”, or “Mint Escape”. Canned oxygen manufacturers are creating all sorts of flavors and essences to add to their oxygen products including lemon flavor, Eucalyptus, cherry, mint, and a host of others. If you thought bottled water is big, wait until this product hits full stride. If you said to yourself back in the eighties, “who would pay for water in a plastic bottle”, you might not want to miss out twice. The market has proven that ideas such as this, built on a foundation of being pure, fresh, and clean; can be destined to succeed.
Don’t underestimate the “wisdom” of American consumers with a disposable income, manufacturers sure haven’t. This product is coming to the U.S. and dozens of distibutors have already signed up to begin carrying it. If you are a businessmen or distributor, you may just want to get involved in the next craze to sweep the nation. If you are a consumer that has been looking high and low for that perfect pick-me-up, your ship may have just come in.
Canned oxygen is already starting to appear on store shelves, and it won’t be long before you can find it in your neck of the woods.
We managed to get a hold of a bottle of canned oxygen from one of the newer distributors who have entered the market. The final verdict: It was pretty refreshing to suck the flavored air (ours was “Tropical Breeze") out of a plastic mouthpiece, but I don’t believe I would drop my hard earned dollars on the priviledge daily. But maybe I’m just too foolish to appreciate the awesome power that comes from breathing canned oxygen, who knows.
In fact, they even featured a special “Perri-Air” brand of canned air in the movie “Spaceballs”, so obviously this product really does have some merit.
Here are a few images we took of the product:
