What Is The Second Oldest Profession?

Recommended Posts

We are often told that prostitution is the world's oldest profession.

Is there a league table? What's the second oldest profession - moneylending perhaps?

Stick vendor

Budget sticks : Organic, deadly, straight from the tree.

Luxury/Executive sticks : Artisan-selected stone lashed on business end.

Affordable. Easy terms available.

Be the one who gets the cave; the woman and the deerskins.

Go on - you know it makes sense.

Prostitution is the second oldest, not the oldest.

What you need to do is work out what the bloke did for a living in order to have the cash for the sex in the first place. That's the oldest profession!

#1 Knocker-Upper

How do you think people managed to wake up on time to go to their jobs pre-alarm clock era? The knocker-upper was responsible for waking up his clients so that they would go to work on time, using sticks and clubs to knock on their windows and doors.

This profession was prominent during the Industrial Revolution in the late 1920s in Britain and Ireland. Back then, people preferred to hire a knocker-up as they were much more affordable and reliable than alarm clocks. Unfortunately for the late nighters, knocker-uppers didn’t come with a snooze button and didn’t leave the windows until they were sure their clients had been awoken.
