I got out plenty.
But I'm not talking here. I'm talking Texas....Texans love their cars (trucks actually)....and when I was in Houston in my early 20's, I could not imagine getting around without a vehicle. Although Austin is fairly progressive for Texas, and is a big college town, so there could be more kids without cars there.
I also meant to add this earlier....I don't know how this works, but is it normal to pick up a call-girl in a cafe parking lot and drive them to a hotel? (As opposed to meeting them at the hotel? That would be an awkward ride to the hotel) Would she not get an Uber or Lyft there and back? He dropped her off at a What-a-burger (not the cafe he picked her up at?)....that is really odd (although at that point it was too late to worry about her age or the odd situation).
Anyway, I don't know if he knew she was underage or not. None of us have seen her, so we don't know how she looks. But we do know that she IS underage and I'm curious to know if there were warning signs.
BTW, I don't care about him getting a call girl. If he would have gotten busted for picking up a hooker in Vegas for a bachelor party, I would have laughed and moved on. It is the potential attraction to the youth of the girl that bugs me personally. Did she say she was 18? It is easier to pass for 18 when you are 16.....but that means that Cody was after an 18 year old from jump. Did she say she was 20? 22? The older she said she was online, the less creepy it becomes, but then when he meets her, the more obvious it would have been that she wasn't as old as said she was.
Bottom line, I don't think any person here would be too happy to have some 30 year old man knocking on the door to visit your 18 year old daughter, especially if the guy is seeking her out specifically because she is barely legal.
With all that said...I'm going to try to look at this from a different angle.
If this was strictly about sex, and you are on a sugerdaddy site, there is probably something sad about a 28 year old looking for a sugardaddy....or is basically a straight up prostitute. In that case, maybe younger (but legal) is better.....
