I think it's been mentioned in several other posts that the market for straight male escorts is tiny, if not non-existent, sorry if thats not what you want to hear. And as mentioned, the audition sounds dodgy to me. There only seems to be one escort on the site too. Just make sure you don't get scammed, particularly dont be giving any "registration fees" away.

I've just had a look at the site too and it's clearly not finished; I suspect the 'escort' featured is either the owner, or one of his/her friends, as the 'description' part and so on is all still in draft form. I'm not sure it's a scam in the sense that we normally mean, I don't see any mention of registration fees or guaranteed bookings, and the home page does at least appear to be geared towards attracting clients. The whole thing screams that it was written by a man, too.

I think it is more likely to be a misguided and ill-informed attempt at getting into the escort business by someone who has not done their research, thinks it's a licence to print money and clearly knows nothing whatsoever about the industry. I suspect there will be a good few of these popping up and disappearing just as quickly, both for men and women. Either way, you will earn more money signing on, although if the gentleman featured is your sole competition, it might be worth having a crack at it ;D.

Scratch what I just said! In the small print, the site is keen to emphasise that the escorts featured on it are independent (although it's hard to see how when they are conducting interviews and so on), but they expect clients to pay the full fees online directly to THEM when making a booking; in other words at no time will you be receiving the cash up front which is the only way (with very few exceptions) that an escort booking should be conducted. Leaving aside the matter of if, how and when you yourself will get paid, no punter in their right mind (male or female) will be prepared to do this before they have even met the escort, at least on a site that screams it's proprietors clearly have no idea what they are doing.

I still don't think this is necessarily unscrupulous, just lazy, unresearched, extremely badly put together and very poorly organised. Give it a wide berth.

don't do it. It's a scam. There is no work out there, and believe me I have tried. It's also cost me a fortune to learn my lesson.

The fact that women don't want or need to pay men to keep them company/have sex with them is a separate issue.

Thomas asked if we thought that this particular set-up was a scam, and I still don't think it necessarily is, even taking the payment method into account - it still looks to me like some idiot who hasn't done any research trying to set up a particularly badly-executed agency website. The main things wrong with it are centred round an obvious lack of knowledge relating to how escorting works.

If you have personal experience of this operation by all means post it, but it is completely unfair to tar every chancer who appears with the escortopia brush just because they're daft enough to think straight male escorts could get work. It's not that long since you thought the same thing.

Hi everyone

I have had a good think about this and i will like to become a male escort.

I have looked on google and online and found 6-7 major sites which seem to offer this service.

After researchign into them all they are all scam sights with some shocking feedback on messages boards.

I couldnt believe it after joining one and quickly realizing it was true. Luckily i have not lost any money doing this.

Can everyone please recommend a well respected trusted escort company to join.

I live in the Midlands.

Thank you

amy

If you are straight and looking to escort women, you are wasting your time - the market is so small as to be non-existent, no matter what the scammers tell you. There is more information here: http://www.sw5.info/straightmen.htm. Women don't pay men to spend time with them whether it's for sex or not; think about it logically - why on earth would we, when we can get a shag for little more than the cost of a good bra and ten minutes spent laughing at your jokes ;D? Honestly, it's a no-brainer.

If you are gay then I'm no expert but I think gay male escorts tend to work more often as independents rather than for agencies - I'm sure someone who knows more about it than me will be along at some point!

well, like Amy said...if you're looking to escort women, its a miniscule market. you're better off 'escorting' a girl you like to a nightclub. otherwise, its not  possible. If you're gay (which I doubt you are otherwise you wouldnt be inquiring about where to find websites as most already have an idea as to where to find them) So which one is it?

Hi, I get quite a lot of requests for couple work.  The big but though is the guy has to be bi. 

The voyeur market for escort couples is also small but if you are willing to go"a bit gay", lol, either orally or the whole hog, (and have a ladyfriend escort in the local area), you might get some business.  I rather suspect this is not the answer you wanted though.

I have actually booked a male escort to join me and my boyfriend but he was useless.  I picked this particular one because he had an actual picture, and not a cock shot - there is nothing worse than a cock shot for advertising unless you are looking at the gay market.
