    吃完早饭,更坚定了要把人嫖到手的想法

    is it saying the person is determine to prostitute himself to someone?
    or is he determine to visit a prostitute?
    or something else entirely?

    I think it means that he was resolute in wanting to get a prostitute. I’m not sure as I need more context to confirm. It is definitely not your first guess.

    @Playful Devil Miki995
    Other examples.
    1.嫖了男人,叶君歌心情大好,决定要好好收拾一下蹦跶的主角们了。This was said after the mc got the ml to move in with him.

    2.目前叶君歌还没有反应过来来人就是他准备嫖的便宜哥哥。

    And below is the full sentence for the example in my first post

    3.不动声色地吃完早饭,更坚定了要把人嫖到手的想法,上得厅堂下得厨房的好男人啊,以后就不用自己做饭了,想想就幸福。

    The character '嫖' is used a lot through out the first arc of the story so it confused me on what the mc is wanting to do.

    I think in this context, 嫖 is used in the sense of sleeping someone.

    @Vemmy So like he just wants someone to sleep with? I guess that makes sense cause mc was complaining how he hasnt got a lover in a long time and wanted one so he plans on hugging ml thighs.

    So this here 嫖了男人,叶君歌心情大好... this part could be like him saying he's in a happy mood now that he found someone to sleep with... uh huh. lol

    “Slept a man, Ye Jun Ge’s mood greatly improved”
    Except a bit more crude? Depends on the tone of the writing and your personal preference.

    [He was resolute in wanting to hook up with that outstanding man that can cook after silently eating his breakfast. He would no longer need to cook his own meal after getting that man. He was already blissful from just thinking about that.]

    This is my go~
