It's not all about sex, reveals high-profile New York male escort (1)

He claims that he earns about $30,000 a year in his job as a part-time escort.

In a patriarchal society, the idea of male prostitutes is often shrouded in mystery. A new York-based male escort, who charges clients $2,500 for a full day with him, allows us a sneak-peek into the dark and mysterious world of male sex work. The 32-year-old man, who goes by the pseudonym Luke Jackson, claims that he earns about $30,000 a year in his job as a part-time escort.

However, he insists that his job is not all about providing sexual pleasures and that many of his customers who pay him for sex are women who are looking for companionship. ‘I often feel like a kind of sex therapist: someone who helps women figure out how to voice their desires, needs, and fantasies,’ he told in an interview with Cosmopolitan.com.

He says that he has been involved in sex work for the past eight years. His decision to become a male escort was influenced by a meeting with a woman he refers to as ‘Claire’ who was a high-end escort as well a PhD student of literature that he met via an ad on Craiglist. She suggested that he should try being an escort while also pursuing his journalism career because ‘straight’ and ‘well-endowed’ men aren’t so common in the industry. ‘Maybe I should say here that I’m nine and a half inches long and as wide as a beer can,’ Luke shares.

He also admits that some of his customers are even married and treat their affairs with him as a secret. He believes that one his married clients actually benefited from her interactions with him and became more honest about what she desired in her marriage. ‘This job is not simply about being “good in bed”.  It’s about enjoying sex and sexuality,’ he explains.

Although Luke is open to having threesomes with his clients, he claims that he does not get physically intimate with another man during these encounters. Nobody else knows about his lucrative ‘side business’ except his siblings and some of his friends. Luke also has no plans to give it up any time soon.’ These days, I don’t have any plans to quit,’ he said. ‘I truly like my clients and feel I provide a service. It’s a break from their real life … and it’s a break from mine.’
