This article in The Daily Beast is very highly skeptical about the Showtime “reality” TV series Gigolos set in Las Vegas.
They compare gigolos who work exclusively for women to Bigfoot. A creature of legend that does not really exist.
As The New York Times’ skeptical review noted: “It’s not unheard of for women to pay for sex, but if Internet ads are any indication, the market looks a whole lot stronger for gay male escorts. So a look at women-only gigolos in Las Vegas is a little like a cooking show devoted entirely to vegan steak recipes.”
And then there are those, including male porn star Christian XXX, who flat-out think gigolos are an urban myth. “Male escorts work for guys, and the ones who claim to only do women are lying,” he told me. “I know a lot of men who do escorting, and the money is only in guys.”
