We assume most athletes don't have to pay for sex. Yet still, there are many who choose to. It's kind of strange if you think about it—after all one of the most oft-repeated perks of being an athlete is the opportunity to sleep with many, many people with little to no effort. Wilt Chamberlain famously claimed to bed 20,000 women in his lifetime. Keep in mind that there are only 365 days in a year. And while Wilt isn't on this list, we bring him up as a starting point to estimate that other athletes find sex pretty easy to come by, too. Even if you're only pulling in one percent of Wilt, that's still 200 people. That brings us back to our confusion of how we were able to find so many athletes shelling out dough for sex that we were able to compile a surprisingly big list.
Also remember, these are just the ones who got caught.
Let this write-up be a warning that paid escorts are a great way to run into an undercover sting. Learn a lesson from Greg Anthony, whose ill-timed arrest gave us the idea to run with this concept before Warren Sapp's arrest yesterday morning made him an afterthought. At least they're not alone. Here's A History of Athletes Who (Allegedly) Solicited Prostitutes.
