Definitely published no later than 1974, set in the future on Earth.

I only remember the final scene. A man visits his ex-wife, an official state-registered prostitute whom anyone can legally use. I remember a sentence, "you would never have guessed she was thirty".

After seeing her he's trapped in a room or cell and a starving mob is outside and he's literally ripped to pieces as he tries to escape. It's written in the third person.

    HI there. That's some info already, but please take a look at these guidelines on story-ID, see if they trigger any more memories you could edit in. As for the mail - that's not really the way things are done here, answers will be posted as answers... But we do have some prominent story-ID answerers, so make sure to keep an eye on that question! :) – Jenayah Mar 30 at 23:04
