Keep reading to learn more about what it’s like to be gay a male escort in London.
What comes to mind when you think of male escorts? If you’re like most people, you probably imagine a guy in a tuxedo who offers sexual services after some fancy cocktails. But that’s only one type of escort. In fact, male escorting is more varied than you might think. There are many ways to make money as a male escort, and they don’t all involve taking off your clothes. Being an escort can be an excellent way for gay men like myself to supplement their income while doing something they enjoy. It also has the potential to be very lucrative.
What is life as a gay male escort in London like?
The most important thing to know about being an escort is that it is not about sex. It’s about companionship and intimacy. The reality is that, in general, clients don’t like to be rushed and don’t want to feel pressured into doing anything. They are paying for your company, your conversation, and your company, not for sex. You also need to be prepared for the fact that your clients may be married or have families. It’s not uncommon for clients to feel like they are cheating on their partners, and that can be a source of guilt.
Especially if you’re like me, and tend to attract a type of male client who isn’t open or comfortable about their sexuality and wishes to explore how they feel.
How much money can you make as a male escort?
While you may be tempted to quit your day job after reading about what it’s like to be a male escort, the amount of money you earn will depend on your level of experience. The average rate for a male escort in the UK is around £50-£80 per hour, which means that you can expect to earn around £800 per day – which would be nice, but isn’t usually the case.
Although, of course, you can earn more here in London, if you’re just starting out in the industry, you’re unlikely to earn that much. Many male escorts rely on their day jobs, using the money they earn as escorts to fund their travels, hobbies, or other passions. However, you’re unlikely to earn enough money to quit your job completely unless you are a highly sought-after escort with a lot of clients.
Although I know some who are – and I’m building up to that!
There are many positive things about being a male escort, as long as you’re aware of the potential downsides. Firstly, you have the potential to earn a substantial amount of money. If you’re able to attract a lot of clients, you can make as much as £1000 per day. You’re also your own boss, which means that you can set your own hours. As long as you are able to meet your appointment book, there is no one to tell you when you have to work. You also have the potential to earn extra money by promoting yourself online or by joining other websites – aside from The Male Escort Agency, like Only Fans. Finally, you have the potential to make some lifelong friendships through your work. Some of the clients that you meet may become your friends, and you also have the opportunity to meet other escorts.
While there are many positive aspects of being an escort, there are some significant drawbacks that you need to be prepared for – and I’ll be really honest here…
The most significant negative aspect of being an escort is the risk of falling into a very destructive lifestyle. Some gay male escorts find that they are unable to leave the industry, and they begin to let the job take over their lives. It can be very difficult to withdraw from such a lifestyle.
This doesn’t necessarily apply to me as a non-sexual escort, but of course, there is the inevitable risk of being abused. You’re meeting strangers afterall, some clients are dangerous or violent, and you don’t know who your clients are before you meet them, which means that you are at risk of being attacked or raped.
Should you become an escort?
While there are many aspects of being an escort that are positive, it’s important to be aware of the potential drawbacks. If you’re aware of the potential dangers and you feel like you’re prepared for them, you may enjoy being an escort.
If you’re unsure whether you should become a gay male escort, there are a few things that you can do to help you make your decision. Firstly, you can meet with an escort to see what the industry is like – reach out to other escorts here on the website via their profiles, ask them questions; we’re a friendly crowd.
Secondly, you can read about the experiences of other escorts on forums or websites like this. And lastly, make sure that you understand how much money you can expect to earn before you take the plunge.
