A champagne lifestyle and thousands of dollars of money at your disposal as you jet set across a continent week after week, not the life of a famous celebrity but of an 18 year old male escort from Texas who shall be referred to as Mr D throughout this article. Mr D and i sat down on gay pride and he opened up on the life of a male escort in 21st century America.
Scouted while underage in a club in central Texas, Mr D was taken in by an escort agency who regularly took up to fifty per cent of the thousands of dollars he made weekly from clients of all ages and walks of life before he started negotiating for himself. When one individual finally ratted out on Mr D he was swiftly removed from the books of the agency and began to drift as anyone who has been kicked out of home at 16 would do and been exposed to such financial, drug and alcoholic extremes.
A life of being gay bashed and discriminated against ensued on his return to his hometown to attend high school graduation and live on the margins of society, devoid of family support or true friendship, “i don’t trust anyone in this world only myself“. With the use of the internet and especially the website Adam4Adam.com a new avenue presented itself for Mr D who still had nowhere to turn with college seeming light years away.
A sugar daddy in Ohio came on board and a life of almost no sexual favors ensued merely personal company as Mr D sought normality and consistency. Yet this did not last and a swift change to California brought a world of closeted gay high profile actors and politicians into Mr D’s life, money and crystal meth were the norm for his companions with stretch limos provided for dozens of young men pampered by the super rich and famous in exchange for sex and silence.
This lavish lifestyle did not last either and within a few months Mr D found himself arrested for prostitution before breaking free finally and starting into a job as care worker and living a normal and regular life once again one would assume. The internet came calling and a pampered month in NYC and an audience of male escorts with an Indian Royal ensued before the floating path of the former cover model brought Mr D to Gay Pride NYC, alone and confused and without direction relying on offers from the internet to be take care of by money and sexual favors elsewhere in north america.
A life less ordinary but one with no purpose or gain, just rejection and dismissal haunts him and his colleagues. The long term aim for Mr D is to go to college and study in the field of dermatology and to make a new life and to one day be loved and to love someone back but as American society dictates that money talks it seems this dream may be much farther away than the journeys he makes week after week criss-crossing America with his colleagues many of whom are stuck in a viscous world of Party and Play with only Antony Greene’s Art of Seduction for guidance.
