Euphemisms: 'entertaining prostitutes'

From one of our news stories:

A Worcester county councillor has called for a new truck park in the town after drivers were reported parking up by the side of the road and entertaining prostitutes in their cabs.


It makes me wonder how exactly the truck drivers were entertaining the prostitutes. Singing them songs, perhaps, or doing a little bit of juggling?

I like that, even in the sense they intended, it sounds rather quaint. For me at least, it conjures up images of tea and cakes, and perhaps some parlour games.

I would have thought the entertainment would have been traveling the other directions.

Seems to me they mean "hosting" rather than providing amusement.

No doubt, the demimondaines were entertained by the exaggerated belief of the truckers in their performances....
