Guest Aaron Lawrence

Hi Folks,

 

I received this request via e-mail a few days ago. I turned him down because I didn't want to be a part of whatever he was plotting. As my lover put it, "I smell a rat."

 

What do you guys think? And what would all of you escorts done in my place?

 

--Aaron

 

PS, I deleted part of their last name's for their privacy reasons.

 

 

Hello Aaron,

My name is Louis A<deleted>. I have a request to make of you, and would like to know if you would be willing to undertake it. I would like to send you as a Christmas / Birthday present to a good friend of mine, David S<deleted>, for an evening. We live in Arkansas. I will, of course, pay for your flight here as well as your overnight. In addition, after your leaving Dr. S<deleted>'s home, I would require that you visit my home to inform me whether you had, in fact, had some sort of sex with Dr. S<deleted>, although the details of such sex would be immaterial: I would need a simple "yes" or "no." I would be, however, extremely interested in the topics of your discussion. (There will be, I'm afraid, quite a bit of discussion.) I would, of course, pay you for our hour, though no sex would be involved... (I don't think :) ). We can work out the details of your transport to / from the airport in Little Rock after your reply.

 

By the way, I was extremely impressed by your web page. You are a very intelligent man (hence, my choosing you for this task.) In case you're wondering, David S<deleted> is in his early forties, is reasonably good-looking with blond hair and blue eyes, has the soft gut that comes with being of such an age, but is in no way some kind of rhinoceros you would have to squeeze your eyes shut to be intimate with. In your dealings with him, my only requirement would be that you not discuss your fees during your evening together. If, afterward, he chooses to inquire of you concerning such matters, that would be between you and him.

 

Please inform me of your schedule, and whether or not this this assignation appeals to you. Should it appeal to you, you may want to take a look at a book by Mark Merlis entitled An Arrow's Flight. Your familiarity with this work would be helpful.

 

I look forward to your reply.

 

Respectfully,

 

Louis A<deleted>

Hi Aaronn,

 

 

Big-time rat, could be a hundred things, but the first one that comes to mind is this ... a (possibly straight) guy trying to find out if a friend of his is gay; or he just needs 'dirt' on him--so your instincts (I don't want to be the dirt) were good, IMHO.

I predict this is going to become one of the longest threads in the history of this board :-) by the time everybody says what else could go wrong. Let's make it juicy :-)

I smell a big time rat. Giving someone a session with an escort is odd in itself. Wanting to know if the escort had sex with that someone is very suspect. Did someone say blackmail? I strongly suspect that where this is leading to. Trust your instincts. Stay away.

I have on several occasions sent a "gift" to a friend. I agree with Mr. B, it is not that unusual. What is, is all the info requested of you. Just reply a simple NO! and be done with it. No need to speculate the guys motives. Quite boring actually when you think about it. We all have better things to do. That is why I am wasting my time responding. LOL

"say goodnight, Gracie"......Good night!

I agree Aaron - stay out of this one. Although I would love to have a friend send me you for my birthday, not this 'friend' with these conditions.

 

Btw, did just a little research on the book you were asked to read. Some interesting information here: http://www.stonewallinn.com/Features/ArrowIntro.html

Do read the interview with the author.

 

Has anyone read the book?

I've lately become a cynic, but you don't have to be cynical to smell something funny with this. It reads like a clumsy attempt by someone to hire you to dig up dirt. Personally, I don't think it's the sex in itself that's the motive here, but it sounds like the potential "date" is a blabbermouth and the person trying to hire you knows this and is hoping the guy will say something they can use about them or some other person. Maybe it's a jealous lover who knows this guy and suspects he's banging his boyfriend. Maybe it's a boyfriend checking up on his boyfriend. Maybe it's a pigfucking politician who is being blackmailed by a guy he knows is gay and who wants to negate the potential effects of a pigfucking scandal with a gay sex scandal. Maybe it's someone who thinks this guy has too big a mouth and has been spouting off to other people what they do in the sack and just wants to confirm it's him doing the talking before he confronts him with it.

 

At any rate, this sounds like a whole ball of trouble into which you wouldn't really want to insert yourself or any part of your body.

Sensing the danger is obvious.... but isn't anyone curious as to why this person wanted to hire Aaron Lawrence if the only motivation was blackmail? He has to pay a high fee, fly Aaron in, pay for that, arrange all the ground transport, etc. If blackmail was the agenda, a local kid could do the job just as well. I am curious as to why this guy chose Aaron Lawrence!

I don't think it's blackmail. I think he's trying to find out if his friend is gay. And he sees Aaron as someone who could handle just about any situation with tact and intelligence. A hell of a way to find out, though, and Aaron is wise to avoid it.

Very curious. . . . the gent who is the the "Escort of the Year" the poster of a regular column, and the well-known author, is asking our advice? I would expect higher judgement and discretion from someone of his credentials. . . . surely someone of his experience has come across a similar situation, or at least has a network of associates readily available for consultation. Could this be an honest inquiry or just a way to keep his profile current? Hope I won't read about his kicking in stereo speakers, his properties and personal drivers on call. Pardon me for being the skeptic, but this is an issue a true professional should know how to handle. The original e-mail is laced with caution flags. IMHO. Don't want to start a war. . .

RE: Lighten up

 

I don't know Aaronn other than what he posts here, his writings and his reviews, I'm not physically attracted to him even, but it's so clear that he's for real and just loves to communicate. He's got a question, he asks our advice. Sure that reminds hundreds of clients of his existence. It's called marketing. But I just know that Aaronn is sincere... if we start trashing escorts and questioning their motives every time they start a thread, soon none of them will want to post here anymore. Surely that's not what we want?

Right Wing Conspiracy

 

Guys, guys, GUYS!

 

This is soooo obvious! David S. is clearly our own Mr. Bill, who, having had his ass kicked by a certain cigar chomping female intern, has turned to male escorts to get relief from his heavy presidential duties. They're so much more discrete! And David S.'s soft belly is a dead givaway to Bill's penchant for Big Mac's......

 

Anyway, the guy wanting to do the hiring is from the RNC, or Pat Robertson, or some Mormon group promoting conversion therapy. They've gotten tired of Paula Jones, who betrayed them by appearing in Hustler, and Bill isn't cooperating by having a lavish affair with some Hollywood starlet. So what more shocking set up than to be caught PAYING for sex with a guy, particularly one who looks a little underage......Tabloid heaven!

 

Aaron, I hope I don't see you in any check out stands over Xmas.

 

So what do y'all think of my vast right wing conspiracy theory?

LAST EDITED ON Nov-25-00 AT 08:12PM (EST)[p]Hi Aaron,

 

Like youself, I would have turned him down. What makes me suspicous is the "...I would require that you visit my home to inform me whether you had, in fact, had some sort of sex...".

 

In this case, your client is the person your visiting. The billing arrangements are inmaterial. Your site has made the point that you are descrete. Answering (let alone asking) even a "Yes/No" question would be unethical not to mention illegal in most states.

 

Bravo, Aaron for handling this correctly.

LAST EDITED ON Nov-25-00 AT 10:20PM (EST)[p]I was once surprised with a gift of a slaveboy whom I thought was cute. My lover and I actually knew him. But I had never thought to actually have sex with him, and here were my lover and his ex gleefully looking forward to my using this boy in front of them. I sent them away and had some of the worst sex I have ever had with this way too submissive in a lay there and look dead type of way lad. Since then I never let anyone surprise anyone else with a gift of me. I always insisted on some sort of gift certificate arrangement where the person who bought the gift paid me in advance and whether it was used or not wasn't any of his business. Then the gift accepter, if he really wanted me, could make his own arrangements, in his own voice.

Anyway, in the chat with the author of the book we've already been sent towards, the man states that he based his book on "Philoctetes" by Sophocles, only bringing it up to date by inserting numerous anachronisms. The young hero, of the same name as the play, has been made a callboy/dickdancer who doesn't really see that as his life, and feels a bit washed up in it. In the play,he is tricked into going to the Trojan war by an older man who tells him that he is going to take him to his (P's) home, where he is a prince. And evidently from the sample chapters much the same thing happens in the novel, though I may be wrong about that. Possible parrallels with this man's plans are downright scary, aren't they?

I should add that the lover I mentioned earlier was my second, not my fifth, with whom I am as happy as two lovers living three miles away from each other can be.

A spell checker has been under consideration by the author of the program, however he says it would bog it down and there are no plans in the works for it.

 

What I typically try to do is write in MS Word and let it do the checking, then copy and paste.

 

I didnt doo thhat thiss time. :-)

Since you have demonstrated time and time again that you have a good head on your shoulders, Aaron, it's no surprise you'd turn down a request you feel uncomfortable with. Personally, I'd be much less likely to trust the discretion of an escort who'd walk into a situation like this blindly.

 

Perhaps I'm being Pollyanna-ish, but I'm not as suspicious as others about Louis A's motives, though I certainly am curious. For some of the reasons stated above -- why approach you? wouldn't entrapment be more easily and reliably arranged with an unsavory hustler closer to home? -- and mostly because of the reference to Merlis's "An Arrow's Flight," which is a thoughtful (if, IMO, unsuccessful) allegorical re-telling of events in Homer's "Iliad." My guess -- only a guess, of course -- is that Louis A is thinking of his friend as akin to Philoctetes, the archer abandoned on a desert island because of an incurable wound (Merlis uses this as a somewhat awkward analogy for AIDS), until an oracle tells the Greeks they need him in order to defeat the Trojans. Odysseus and Pyrrhus (aon of Achilles, and thus a demi-God) are sent to fetch him, but Odysseus knows Philoctetes will never willingly help the Greeks after his abandonment, and convinces Pyrrhus to trick him into doing so. In Merlis's novel, Pyrrhus is a gay go-go boy on the circuit track, reluctantly enlisted to after his father's death to help with the war effort. I suspect Louis A is thinking you might help David S come out of his shell. Ultimately, Pyrrhus, an honorable sort, comes clean with Philoctetes, and the two develop a close bond. Bottom line IMO: intentions good, methods questionable.

 

In any case, it's fun to speculate. Thanks for sharing. BTW, I don't mean to be dismissive of Merlis -- his "American Studies" was a superb novel, and "An Arrow's Flight" at least intelligent and somewhat provocative.

I just uncovered the funniest coincidence:

 

On November 23 someone e-named Strato posted on Badpuppy's Forum section the story of a friend of his hiring an escort for his Xmas gift.

 

The escort let him know that the deal was the same as Aaron described. Strato was asking advice of the Forum on how to handle the situation.

 

Curious?
