The image of a male escort that many people have in mind is that of a man who is paid to go on dates and have sex with lonely or bored housewives. The truth is that most reputable male escort agencies here in the UK provide male companions for women or gay men who need an escort to a specific function or event.
If you are someone that is interested in becoming a male escort, you may be wondering what it is like. In reality, being a male escort is a fun way to make a lot of money. You are hired to accompany your client to a particular function or event and will be required to pay him or her a lot of attention. You might be expected to pretend that you and your client are partners and, as such, the client may ask you to corroborate a story about how the two of you met. Many clients require a ‘date’ to a wedding or other function to stop friends and family members questioning them about when they are going to meet someone and settle down. It is a male escort’s job to play the part and act like a boyfriend if required.
Being a male escort can place a strain on existing relationships, so is not always the right career choice for those with a long-term partner. No matter what your partner says, he or she will probably feel jealous if you are out entertaining another woman or man. It will also be difficult for you to remain emotionally detached from your clients, especially if they become repeat clients who you build a rapport with.
While many male escort agencies operate a ‘no-sex’ policy, there is nothing to stop a male escort and his client engaging in sexual activity behind closed doors. This will have absolutely nothing to do with the original agreement and is entirely separate from the agency. However, it is easy to see how being a male escort can affect personal relationships.
A male escort job may involve a lot of travelling and time away from home. It is a fun job but one that is generally suited to the single man.
It is important to remember that sex is not part of the agreement, although many clients may assume it is. It is up to you as an individual to stay professional throughout the date, and if you are adamant that you do not want to provide any ‘extras’, you must make sure your client is aware of this.
If you think that being a male escort is an easy way to make a lot of money, you would not be wrong. Nevertheless, most male escorts will tell you that it is easy to do the job when you are physically attracted to a client or when there is instant chemistry and you get on really well. Nonetheless, when your client is someone you do not find physically attractive and is someone with whom making conversation is difficult, the job is less fulfilling. However, as a male escort, you will be expected to provide the same professional level of service to each and every client. At the end of the day, client satisfaction is your top priority.
