A male friend has given up his full time job so he can share custody of his 2 DD's - still working but not earning as much as needs to be around when DD's stay with him. He has come up with the idea of hiring himself out as a dinner companion / 'plus one' for anyone who wants a bit of company without any romatic / relationship conotations - or a corporate or family thing where they want a companion rather than go solo. Strictly nothing sexual. So - would you ever consider hiring a chap for the evening and how much would you be prepared to pay?
No, if I needed a plus one and DH wasn't available I would ask a friend. Although his intentions might be strictly honourable the term "male escort" can be misconstrued. If there is ever an issue with his children and custody his new career choice might well be held against him - I don't think it's a great idea personally.
If I was single, I wouldn't have an issue with it, as long as he used a repuatable agancy. I would never just pick a random guy working for himself.
But really don't see the problem, sometimes it's nice to have intelligent, funny company and if you can't get it the normal routes as you're too busy and don't want to weed out the freaks of internet dating, I don't see why not.
Plenty of women do it, so why should it be any different for a man?
The only point of taking a plus-1 to event is to take someone you know very well (a partner or good mate) so you can gossip about everyone else there. If you don't know the date in the first place what's the point - it's just added awkwardness.
I would just go on my own to events like this anyway, especially corporate ones.
Lots of the people who booked for social events were women with extremely busy lives who wanted or felt that they needed to have a man with them at these events. The majority had powerful well paying jobs.

Yak. Imagine having to lick pussies and shag chicks who are so pathetic they have to pay for sex.
What a deeply unpleasant thing to say. Lots of women who have physical disabilities or mental health problems feel much more comfortable in hiring an escort than they do in "hooking up" in the socially accepted "normal" way.
