Pimps are mack mommies and daddies. They pander their stables of strumples to the lonely, the desperate, and the libidinous. A good pimp is half lashmaster, half waremonger, half smoovester, and half ham, with an attitude big enough to accommodate four halves. Pimping is a respected profession in many parts of the world. Elsewhere it’s illegal, or at least heavily frowned upon.
