to ask if you would hire a male escort for the evening?

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.

No. I have a DH and even if I never it's not hard to find a date.

sunnydelight Thu 23-Jun-11 09:23:41

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.

No. I'd go alone if I couldn't find a date (assuming I were single which I am not).

Can't help thinking he must have decided this would be an easy job. I suspect it would be harder than he thinks, even if strictly platonic!

Bradsmum Thu 23-Jun-11 09:30:54

No. Plus what do you say when you introduce said "Male Escort" and explain who, what he is - or would you make that up and invent story which defeats the whole purpose...

No the only time that would ever work out is in a dodgy rom com.

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?

" plenty of women do it" I can't imagine many men hire a female escort and not expect sex.

If I needed to go to a function/wedding I would probably just go on my own.

AuntieMonica Thu 23-Jun-11 09:54:25

No, even in my single years would i ever have contemplated it.

if you 'need' a plus one, then surely you'd find a RL friend to take - male or female?

TakeMeDrunkImHome Thu 23-Jun-11 09:54:34

Was contemplating a name change but what's the point, nobody knows me! My P has worked as a male escort. Professional and sexual. He was very very very busy, people really DO use escorts.

TechLovingDad Thu 23-Jun-11 09:55:56

Only a bloke would think that women would pay for this service grin

I think the non-sexual term is a walker, very different from an escort

EightiesChick Thu 23-Jun-11 10:13:39

TakeMeDrunkImHome so is it a more difficult job that might be expected, then?

hobbgoblin Thu 23-Jun-11 10:17:22

I can absolutely see the appeal. Although I am single and have male friends I don't have loads and most of them are in hetero and homo relationships so wouldn't be available to come out with me.

i doubt I'd pay someone to accompany me but I can absolutely see the attraction of having instant access to someone available for company/to look the part at 'couply' events.

expatinscotland Thu 23-Jun-11 10:18:49

Yak. Imagine having to lick pussies and shag chicks who are so pathetic they have to pay for sex.

hobbgoblin Thu 23-Jun-11 10:22:21

I think there exist virtually no women who, though they might see the appeal, would want to actually hire a date. They might like the idea but they would NEVER actually book him.

Firstly, it's a little risky. Secondly, most would probably rather not go to said function. Thirdly, they'd almost certainly assume that sex was part of the deal however much this was denied...

Is he a good social mover, intellectual, handsome..?

Why its so easy for a woman to get sex so i would save your pennies and and go on a adult single web site

GetOrf Thu 23-Jun-11 10:27:23

Christ no - what a ghastly idea.

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.

TakeMeDrunkImHome Thu 23-Jun-11 10:27:30

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.

expatinscotland Thu 23-Jun-11 10:18:49

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.
