Would you......Dial A Man?



 
I watched "The Wedding Date" the other evening. A RomCom where a single woman hires a male escort to accompany her to her sisters wedding weekend in order to make her ex jealous.  I can think of many reasons to hire a male escort but stirring the "green eyed monster" in former partners is not one of them.  However it got me thinking about these men who hire themselves out to women of varying ages, occupation and status. Their role is simple enough....remain attentive, engage in intelligent conversation, listen to their "date" and look smart and handsome whilst pretending to be an "old friend", "business associate" or whatever else is necessary to convince the onlookers that he is with her through choice and not for financial gain. Discretion is paramount unless of course you are happy to introduce "Julian" as the man you've hired for the evening because you can't find a decent looking man of your own!

There are, however, those women who are avid escort users.  They do not  have the time or energy to deal with conventional dating methods but enjoy no strings male company where she is completely in control.
There are numerous online sites and agencies. From those who just want an innocent dinner date and would never pay for any "optional extras", to those who slip him an extra few pounds and he'll be escorting you to the nearest hotel room for what is basically paid sex. Females are not the only customers of male escorts but men too who are typically between 40 and 60, very wealthy and exist in a world where money literally buys anything. For these last two types however, the title "male escort" is really just a smokescreen for a "male prostitute" and "rent boy".

Is it better than a "one night stand"? Well it's likely to be healthier and safer (most escorts carry condoms) and you're guarateed a good time.  Maybe I should try it myself ( strictly for research purposes only of course)!
 
Is it morally right? This depends on the person doing the hiring and being hired. If it rests easy in your mind and no one gets hurt then I guess why not?

It is in principle a business relationship where both parties involved know exactly what to expect and what is expected. Money doesn't even change hands as this is prepaid to the agency.

But there is an element of double standards here. Whether you like it or not, whether its wrong or right, lets face it...if a woman buys sex the man is a male escort,  but if a man buys sex the woman is deemed to be a prostitute.

  1. Greetings GEM.
    Aha, yes it's me 'Gary the Gigolo'. Okay, a retired Gigolo due to me giving a money back guarantee that I would be the most awesome escort the very rich ladies with the blue hair would ever have the great pleasure of meeting.
    Okay, here's the serious bit. Totally agree with you on the double standards and it's just wrong. Of course, another example of double standards is when a guy sleeps with lots of different ladies, he's a bit of a lad, a stud. If a lady sleeps around with a bunch of different dudes, she might be frowned upon and called a 'slut', a 'slag', a 'slapper'. This is also unacceptable.
    Right then, I might come out of retirement....ummm, maybe not :)
    With respect and kind wishes, your way, Gary.

  2. I find nothing wrong with it at all. The double standard is annoying, but I think anyone should be able to hire a prostitute, no matter the gender.

    Sex is a basic human right and it's ridiculous to me that people try to police how other people have it.

  4. Hi Gary...the Gigolo!

    That could be the title of a new movie or the sequel to "American Gigolo"..."Gary The Gigolo".
    A new kind of celebrity status beckons for you ;)

    But yes you're right regarding the Stud V Tart opinion and I'm not sure that it'll ever change.

    Let me know if you ever come out of retirement, I know many single, more mature ladies who would give their eye teeth (or should that be false teeth??)for an evening with "Gary the Gigolo" ;)

  5. Hi Annabelle

    I really like your comment. You are so right and I agree it should be nobody elses business how someone wants to lead their sex life. It's all about supply and demand really. If people demand something then others will supply it, it's how the world works.

  6. Hi Mrs Pickle

    Some men don't want the sex but just someone to talk to and others want to wear a nappy/diaper and be told to sit on the "naughty step"! You should get some examples of what she has to do and write a post on it. Knowing you it would be absolutely hilarious!!

    Over here in the UK there is a TV serial called "Secret Diary of a Call Girl". It's a no-holds, frank and funny account of a woman in the high class sex trade whose family have no idea of what she is doing.

    Not sure if it will be or has been shown in the US but it's worth watching.

  7. I'd offer my humble services as "Kelly The Gigolo" but I'm a happily married man with a tiny penis so that won't work. I would cheerfully allow Gary to have all my blue-haired clientele. I know a 90 year old grandmother in my family that still likes to get it on. She showed the family a picture of her and her 50 year old boyfriend in a soapy bathtub during Christmas dinner. Luckily the soap bubbles were covering their naughty bits. Anyway, I fully agree with what you said about the ol' double standards. Women have always been judged more harshly when it comes to that. I'm a firm believer that no one has the right to police your sex life.

  8. Hey Kelly The Gigolo....with the tiny penis!

    Is your wife as happily married as you..??

    Well I'm spoilt for choice, what with Gary The Gigolo up above offering his services too!

    I can't even get a 50 year old boyfriend now nevermind at 90 so crack on Grandmother and fill your boots while you still can! I hope I'm still that active and adventurous at that age only problem is I don't like bubbles!!

  9. Hmm,
    I have often wondered if there would be a need for a male social companion. Preferably non sexual,you know,a dinner date,business function,etc. Ladies only of course,i live in an area in Qld Australia where apparently the available male is far outnumbered by the single or unattached female.Whether that is because women outlive men or the local male is either gay or attached ,I don't know. I love and admire women and sincerely love a chat. Would a lady actually pay for a guy to offer attentive company,what would the demographic be? I'm 47 and in reasonably good shape. I would appreciate any feed back,especially from the ladies point of view.
    Sincere regards

  10. Hi Gold Coast Kris

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting. There is definitely a demand for male escorts and many women do pay for their services. The women who tend to use this type of service are generally high flying business women from mid 30's to late fifties and who don't have the time or inclination to embark on a relationship, however, their social and business circle requires a male companion from time to time. I'm not sure about Australia but it's certainly demanded in the UK,there are numerous businesses offering this type of thing. If you like chatting to women and feel that you can engage and tolerate most personalities then give it a go and get paid at the same time :) Good Luck, and let me know how you get on.
