Why are prostitute’s called hookers?
There is a very quick and easy answer for this question. Hookers have been called hookers since 1845. The term came from none other than New York, specifically a place called ‘The Hook’. Ladies of the night could be found every night at ‘The Hook’ and it did not take long for someone to coin the phrase hooker, probably many people coined it, I’m assuming they were men.
I think I’ll skip putting any links on this one.
