Three years (and 5 seasons) later, my world has been glimpsed by millions and the term "gigolo" has found its way into the common lexicon.
I have often compared the life trajectory of a high-end straight male escort to that of an athlete.You might expect a Major League Baseball player to be confused if asked, "How did you get into this?" The portrayal is not inaccurate, but it is, by default, an edited version of events highlighting the most exciting, humorous and sexy parts of my profession and lifestyle.I am glad that the viewing audience has had such a positive reaction to the show and, by extension, to my comrades and me.reported that her new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, is a gigolo.Paetz was involved with a website entitled Cowboys4Angels where he went by the name Christian.
As of today, he is not longer featured on the website, but this was how his services were described on the site: A “certified life coach, dating expert and massage therapist.” For a massage, it would have cost you $350 per hour, and a whole weekend of dating expertise and life coaching would run $6,000. In a strange coincidence, her character on ’s sources report that Paetz has had more than just “a few” dates while working as a gigolo for almost a year.
Regardless on what the actual story is, I’m guessing this romance won’t last for much longer.
Many male escorts, including myself, will use the term "gigolo" in reference to our profession.
More often than not, such use is the easiest way to clarify that our clients are women -– that we are heterosexual.
Technically my profession is "escort," although I think the term "companion" is much classier and also more accurate.
— the reality series in which I star — began airing on Showtime in 2010, the world I inhabit in my professional life was completely unknown.
