I am not sure what the rule of thumb is when you are finding a place to have sex with your boyfriend or girlfriend while you are already married. I am sure there are some schools of thought out there that a hotel is always best. It can be a convenient place for sure and there is help with the cleaning up after, but it can also feel cheap and tawdry much like an afternoon with Paris.
Jon Gosselin decided that the best way for him to have sex with all the people who have debased themselves enough to have sex with a man who has supped with Michael Lohan is by spending $5000 a month for a Manhattan condo. Sure, it is pricey, but if you think about the fact a hotel in Manhattan could run you $400 a night he only needs to have sex for 12 nights to break even. Not including tips to the hotel workers and his date for the evening.
Kate Gosselin on the other hand decided that she was going to buy her love nest. Besides being just a block from the office of her bodyguard which makes nooners much easier, I think it will also be a place where he can retreat to after his wife leaves him. As a bonus for Kate since she will own the place she can make her bodyguard feel like he is worthless and kick him out when he no longer pleases her.
This is why I just prefer Cinemax.
