Very good article! Taking the word "whore" in its literal sense, as a woman who has provided cuddles-for-cash, we have one in an Australian state parliament. Her name is Fiona Patten, she's a Member of the Legislative Council in Victoria, and she's neither secretive nor apologetic about the aspect of her CV I've just mentioned. She's published a book entitled Sex, Drugs and the Electoral Roll: My unlikely journey from sex worker to Member of Parliament. Fiona Patten is a political ally of Victoria's Premier, Dan Andrews, and has recently drafted a major reform of Victoria's prostitution laws. Is she an "epic whore"? I think yes... I mean, whatever you think about her policies, there is surely something epic about her forthrightness.
