Hugh Loebner, PhD, President of Crown Industries, wrote in his Aug. 18, 1994 "To the Editor" letter in the New York Times:

“I am a ‘john.’ I make no apology. In any rational universe the fact that I am able to have a sexual experience with a consenting adult only if I pay that adult would be nobody’s business but mine. Tragically, this is not the case. I am guilty of a crime and subject to arrest. So are those sex workers who tend to my needs.”
