Leon’s take on the gay male escort world
The escort industry is a daring place to work because of its many emotional challenges. My name is Leon, and I have been working in the escort industry for four years now. When it comes to gay male escorting you have to battle with your emotions all the time. It is a never-ending battle. Being a professional often means that you have to keep your emotions in check.
The first thing that I had to do when I joined the escort industry was to make friends and form some alliance. I quickly befriended other guys in the industry whom I could learn from. However, what I quickly realised is that I also find myself falling for my clients. I call it friendship, but it quickly grows into something more within a short time.
My friends warned me that something like this would happen, but I underestimated it. The first client is always the most nervous for an escort. Since you often hold a conversation with the client and have a clue about them, you are still never fully sure if the client will like you or not. It was worse because I started as a straight escort. Yes, I only switched to gay male escorting a few years ago.
A man may look tough on the outside, but inside they are always eager to please their girls. However, girls seem to misunderstand this. I was twenty-six when I met my first client. She was a lady in her late thirties, and I was nervous. It took my friends in the escort industry to convince me that I could do it.
We spent ample time in the local restaurant. It was an Italian-themed restaurant with lots of wines. That was the first time I drank to the point of becoming tipsy. She insisted I follow her back to her house. It was not part of the agreement. I tried fruitlessly to resist, but she literarily dragged me home. She kissed me several times, and my knees buckled. I was weak to my feet.
I replied to her kiss, and she dragged me to her bedroom. I could feel the rush of adrenalin down my spine. In a matter of seconds, our clothes were scattered all around the house. I had the most mind-blowing sex of my life. I slept over at her place and left the next morning. She apologised the next morning, but I told her it was not necessary. Over the next couple of weeks, she kept calling and hiring me.
At a point, I was the one that was longing for her. It soon began to feel like we were dating. A few times I had to cancel my contract with a potential client just to be with her. I contacted a few friends in the industry, and they told me it was best. I switched to gay male escorting if I can’t handle my emotions with women.
I was sceptical about what gay male escorting meant, so I didn’t take them seriously. I moved to another city where I will be far from her. I believed the distance would automatically put an end to the emotion. It did, but I found myself falling for another client. It was at this point that I had to take the hard decision of changing my line of escorting.
The problem with gay male escorting was that I was not gay and didn’t know what to expect from the industry. My first notion of the industry was that only gay men offer the services. As always I met a few friends in that category, and they told me that being gay is not a criterion. I did further investigations and decided to leap.
There was nothing to lose; I assured myself. The switch was seamless, and I nailed my first client in a few weeks. The problem now is that I have started to feel a similar attachment for my male clients like I felt with my female clients. Since I have about four years’ experience in this industry, balancing between work and emotion remains my most difficult challenge and gay male escorting is not an exception.
