LAST EDITED ON Nov-05-00 AT 07:36PM (EST)[p]I spent most of last evening reading Aaron's latest book, "The Male Escort's Handbook: Your Guide to Getting Rich the Hard Way." While it covers much of the same material as Matt Adam's "Hustlers, Porn Stars, and Escorts," Aaron's book is better writen, better organized, and offers fewer arbitrary opinions (i.e., Matt's advice that escorts avoid clients from Los Angeles).

 

Although Aaron undoubtedly tends to glamorize the escort business, his book does offer reassurance that "healthy" escort/client relationships are possible. And, the quotes in the final chapter from other escorts prove that Aaron is not the only person who truly enjoys his chosen profession.

 

Like several other readers, I was touched and troubled by Rod Hagen's post in the "pangs" thread. I found myself asking whether the wonderful experiences I've had with escorts were illusionary. Is exploitation necessarily at the root of these relationships?

 

Thanks, Aaron, for rescuing me from a major guilt trip.

No need for guilt, please! I think lots of escorts are like me: I have a college degree, I'm in graduate school at a great institution, I have a fantastic resume listing many awards and honors, and I am a young out-going self starter in the best economy and job market that's existed since before I was born. I've got choices. I choose to be an escort because it's SO rewarding and fun.

 

Now there are boys out there that probably are exploited, but I think they are more rare, and I don't think they're the ones that we read about on this site. Maybe they're the ones in Thailand, ya know? But here? No, we're entrepeneurs!

 

I went to Aaron's book signing here in NYC and met him finally. He's a sweet boy, huh?

 

 

Save your guilt and have a good time! :)

Thanks for the reassurance. Yes, Aaron is a sweet boy -- I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times in 1997 when I was traveling regularly to Philadelphia. It's been fun following his meteoric career in the years since.

 

Congratulations on a nifty web site!
