Whores of Mensa

By far my favourite Woody Allen's essay - in his collection of essays "Without Feathers" - on pseudo-intellectual prostitution..
Its a depiction of a situation where men buy women/more like comparative literature grad students to debate on the literary works - yes some people do get their high like that- I choose more so the debate on music or socio-political issues for mine... but whichever the case

Here is a quote from the essay

"For three bills, you got the works: A thin Jewish brunette would pretend to pick you up at the Museum of Modern Art, let you read her master's, get you involved in a screaming quarrel at Elaine's over Freud's conception of women, and then fake a suicide of your choosing - the perfect evening, for some guys. Nice racket. Great town, New York."

for the whole essay
Whores of Mensa
