Buy a Plane, Buy a Companion?

The WSJ has an article on how the boom in wealth in recent times has led to a whole new tier of escort pricing (all of this in conjunction with the Spitzer story). Maybe the most interesting bit is some info towards the end of the article on the prevalence of purchased sex among the super rich:

According to a survey by Russ Alan Prince, president of Connecticut-based wealth-research firm Prince & Associates, in his book “The Sky’s The Limit,” a sizable percentage of the super wealthy use escorts. He surveyed 661 people who owned private jets. It found that 34% of males and 20% of females had paid for sex.
