Re: Face Photos

I've been looking to hire my first escort for a few months now, but I'm looking for a guy with a great body and a face that I'm attracted to. It seems like only half of the guys on RentBoy post face photos, which I understand, but I would assume that once a potential client inquires, the escort would be willing to share.

 

I contacted a guy a month ago who would not share face pictures online, but would do a pre-meet, which I appreciated. At the time I didn't go for it. I recently came across an ad for a guy with a great body, but he didn't have any face pictures and also would not share because he wanted to be discreet. When I offered to go near him for a quick meet up, he just told me, "sorry that's not how it works."

 

Is it fairly typical to hire an escort without seeing their face? Facial attraction is important to me so I don't think I would ever hire a guy without knowing what he looks like, no matter how great his body. Do any of you have good solutions?

Other than only choosing the guys who show their face, not really. You're going to come across people with Great faces, who won't have the body type you're attracted to. Or you may get both, or neither.

 

This kind of goes along with the requests to see dick pictures. I advertise on BP occasionally, but I don't show my face because too many sites lift profiles from there . and I find that the ones asking for face pic (whether or not they see the link to my website) or anything else, usually don't tend to book anyway. I'm sure many guys probably feel that if guys will see them without having to show their face, then there isn't a need to send someone an extra pic.

 

I recall 1 unsavory client invited me to see him, and after pressuring me to send a face pic claiming to "not want to have me come over and not be into it", I sent a face pic to him. He was all up for it, even came downstairs to meet me...and then upon walking out said, "I'll pass". Mind you...I had sent him a pic before meeting. Although that rarely happens, it just goes to show to motives of some people....and that guys who don't show their face probably already know that anyone pressuring too much is probably not going to go thru anyway.

 

...BUT, I can relate to where you are coming from. In my personal life, I don't meet anyone without a face pic. And I mean NO ONE (ironic despite the business we're in). Not just because of looks, but because many of the guys that I've met that don't show their face on dating sites...have a reason not to. Usually 1 that involves a double life. And a couple times, I've met some with great bodies, but the attraction wasn't there (hell, it's happened to me too...which is why I believe in showing my face. I rather be rejected without my knowledge, than rejected to my face). So on that tip, I don't do it.

For me, the face is much more important than the body. Yes, I would like a great body when I hire as well, but now matter how great someone's body is, if I don't find them to be nice looking in some way, then I have no intention of sleeping with them. I really don't get why an escort believes he is going to get much business when he wont show what he looks like. Its ridiculous IMO. Yes, I get the whole I need to be discreet thing, but its just a waste of both our time if I end up booking an escort that wont show his face, because once I show up at his door, and I don't like his looks, I'm going to walk right back out and not do the appointment.

Some escorts that post pictures of face and body aren't their own or are 10 years old, so seeing a face on an ad is no guarantee that is what you are going to see when you show up. Besides asking to have the escort send a recent accurate face picture, agreeing to a no obligation meet-up in a public place (rarely, but some escorts who do in-calls will agree to this if there is a place near where they host)- the only other solution that I have heard of that might work for you is briefly Skyping prior to agreeing to meet. A final option is to only hire porn actors so you know exactly how they look because they are on film.

 

My recommendation to you is to set rules and guidelines and follow them. It is not unreasonable to want to see a face picture before you hire someone. Its also a reality that some escorts will refuse to send you one. While it is the escorts right to do that, its your right and responsibility not to patronize them. Do not let any escort coerce or guilt you in to meeting by breaking your own rules. If you do show up to a meet and the person is not who they represented to be, you owe it to yourself to walk away at that moment. Don't reward trickery, bait-and-switch, and other dishonesty or it will happen again and again. There are plenty of escorts out there who do post accurate pictures for you to hire. Escorts I have personally met (off the top of my head) include Rick P of New York and Peter Hung and Paul Pratt of Las Vegas, all who look exactly like their face pictures they post.

 

I have been disappointed every single time I met someone without seeing their face picture. I have a natural tendency to imagine what someone would look like when I am not given that part of the picture (i.e. a headless torso). In every instance, what shows up never lives up to the image I created in my own head which is an instant let-down and ruins the session for me. So if the face is very important to you, don't meet up with someone who won't show you their face and find someone else that will.

Thank you very much for that. I agree completely and because I have not yet hired an escort, I do not really know what the standards are. I'll definitely be sticking to a rule of being able to see a face beforehand.

For me, the face is not as important as his body. I just want someone with an exceptional body if I choose to partake in hiring an escort. Strange thing is: many of the escorts with body and fake pics turn out to be fakes. I was on a4a just the other day out of boredom. I looked in the "professional" section in several major cities, I randomly did a google search of the pics posted and over 50% of them were stolen from model mayhem, or some tumblr sight. I wouldn't trust face pics even if they agreed to send them.

This is ALL a matter of personal taste and there is no ABSOLUTE right or wrong. I for example require a great nude torso shot and the rest is negotiable. Lack of a nude torso shot is a definite deal breaker for me but then I'm a total body fascist. I like a face shot and a cock shot but neither are deal breakers.

We choose not to show our face pics for 2 reasons... which may or may not pertain to other working men out there....

 

1. Privacy/Family. We are open and honest with all of our social friends about what we do. However, not with our families. I would hate my mother finding out I did this, not because I am ashamed or embarrassed, but because I know she would be. It's to protect her. In life, sometimes we run across troubled souls that for whatever reason, do us intentional harm. I would hate to have someone who is upset with me send our rentboy link to my family via facebook message or post one for them to see.

 

2. This may pertain only to the Los Angeles or NYC boys... but hypothesize that perhaps one has had some minor success in the "real world" with acting, or singing, or modeling... or what have you... or even a profession with "morality standards." The arts are a feast and famine type career path... Everyone has dreams... and sometimes we find unusual ways to pay the price and support those dreams. Allowing industry professionals to have clear proof of this alternative professional... does not help with an already tremendously hard arts career. Especially when half the casting directors are potential clients.

 

Like Joey Bryant, in our personal lives, we require our rare hookups to provide pics of what they have to offer... it is then our decision whether it is a go or not. The same should apply to this case as well. If you have a rule to not meet guys without face pics.. don't ever do it. Trust your gut... it will never betray you. However, if you take the risk on occasion, know it is just that... a risk.. But like all good risk.. sometimes there is great reward.

 

Obviously, we rely heavily on our reviews to convince potential playmates that we are worth the risk. We are so grateful for this website as it allows us a way to prove we are what we say we are. Bottom line... like mentioned in an earlier post... if you don't like what you see when you/he arrives for your appt... walk away or kindly refuse entry. Only time and a bit of energy is lost.

First of all welcome gentlemen. And I do agree with your post. There are a multitude of reasons why an escort will not provide a face pic, and I respect some ones decision not to provide one, but it's my choice not to hire if one is not provided. Personally I never/or almost never hire without a face pic. On those occasions that I have hired minus the face pic, when I was guaranteed that I would not be disappointed, mostly I have been disappointed, however I have been pleasantly surprised a few times, so I guess you just never know. At best it is a roll of the dice. Ultimately your last line are words that I live by.

the greatest beauty is

Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things,

the divine beauty of the universe.

Love that, not man apart from that,

or else you will share man’s pitiful confusions,

or drown in despair when his days darken."

Well, If the client came to the escort's house and walked away...that's not much wasted. But, if the escort went to the client's place, transportation money would be warranted. It's good karma to pay a guy even $20, even if the interest is not there. Especially if the guy was his pictures, but maybe didn't quite resemble it on the ad. If not, then God skipped over the client when he handed out the qualities of character and integrity.

 

And then, sometimes you just don't know. I recall there was a guy I met in Dallas. Non-professionally. 1st date he seemed un-interested and claimed that I looked nothing like my pictures. Well, few months later guess he forgot who I was and sent me a message to my profile. I agreed to see him, and this time walked up in a tight Black tank-top. I don't remember too much, but I do remember how good it felt with him licking my balls and sucking my dick while standing up over him. And I think we made out and pretty sure we both got off together.

 

So not sure what he didn't see in me on the 1st date that was there on the 2nd date. Maybe the lighting wasn't good.

Why don't you just look at the profiles with face pictures and hire one of them?

 

If they don't post face pics or are unwilling to send you one, is because they want to be discreet, they are old or ugly.

 

You already scheduled a "pre-meeting" and you didn't do it, that's a waste of time for the escort and you. Why would you bother someone with potential pre-meetings and asking for other pics when half the guys in Rentboy already have what you want some clear face and body pics.

 

I'm sure there must be someone you like on Rentboy.
