Ben Stein Just Wanted To Hug and Kiss the Ex-Call Girl He Met

Ben Stein wrote a rambling piece for the Spectator last month in which he talked about meeting a girl named Lucia at SFO and being so taken by her beauty that they exchanged numbers. Ben Stein is married. The two texted back and forth wherein Ben learned she was a former call girl who became a social activist who’s now an aspiring writer working as a waiter and stock clerk. She wanted him to teach her how to be a famous writer.

Ben said one day they were texting and she told him she was pregnant and not with the father. That’s when she hit him up for money. Stein, being pro life, agreed and put some cash in her account.

Turns out Lucia, real named Tanya Ma, 24, didn’t like how her then anonymous self was portrayed in the article and contacted Page Six. She told them she didn’t “want him to continue to do this to women.” This apparently being giving them money and then asking to hug and kiss them.

“It’s much more than sexting, cyber-escorting or being a sugar daddy — it’s unhealthy and toxic behavior that needs to be exposed,” insisted Ma, who lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Ma says when she first met Ben, she thought he was purely interested in her as a writer. The two texted for four months before he asked her for pics. “He said he was very captivated and he just wanted to remember me. After a while, he started asking for more racy photos.

Stein wanted to put her in a hotel close to where he lives but the day before she was supposed to meet him, he texted her about wanting to touch and kiss her. That was what apparently creeped her out. Ma texted back that she just wanted to talk. Stein responded that the note she wrote hurt his feelings and showed zero appreciation.

Ma added that his wife knew everything. Stein denied being creepy.

“She is a person I have only met for less than five minutes at an airport. I have never touched her, I have never had any sexual contact with her. I should get a medal for helping this woman,” Stein said of Ma.

“This is a person who appealed to me for money. She said she would send me some examples of her performance art. Some of those examples were racy, and some were not.

“I just don’t get what I have done wrong. She is mad at me because she wanted more money.”

At least Ben Stein learned a very important lesson from all this. Never pay up front no matter how bad the blue balls.
