While wandering around the Internet yesterday, I came upon an article about a Nevada brothel that’s looking for male sex trade workers to service its female clientele.
This is a new service they’re offering. The local licensing body recently changed the law that required prostitutes to submit to weekly cervical screening. Since men didn’t have cervixes, they couldn’t legally work as prostitutes. The law now also allows for urethral testing, and the Shady Lady aims to be the first Nevada brothel with legal male prostitutes.
The nay-sayers are saying the business plan isn’t viable, because no woman wants to get laid bad enough that she’d be willing to drive two and a half hours into the middle of nowhere and pay hundreds of dollars for it. Especially when she could just leave a note on Craigslist and instantly get a dozen offers of free sex. But others think women will be willing to go the extra mile for the professional touch.
The couple who runs the brothel have received over 100 applicants so far (“including two foreigners”), ten of whom have been deemed “promising.” (A lot of the applicants apparently hail from Detroit, where unemployment is high.)
The female owner, Bobbi Davis, is conducting the interviews and will personally select the successful candidate(s).
According to the brothel’s website, she’s looking for men who are:
Between 21 and 40.
Have a Good Work Ethic.
Must be Service Oriented.
Have a Willingness to Please.
Have a Positive Attitude.
If you think you have what it takes, please send pictures
(head shot and body shot, no nudes)
and a short Bio to
The Madam will contact those whom she feels will do the best.
Interestingly, the qualifications are identical to the qualifications the Shady Lady looks for in its female sex trade workers. I like that.
But it raises an interesting question about the differences between being a male sex trade worker and a female sex trade worker. Lots of men are joking around saying this sounds like their dream job. They’d get all the sex they want, and they’d get paid for it too.
But they seem to forget that in addition to all the sex they want, they’d also be required to have sex they didn’t want.
The brothel owners point out that the man must be able to “entertain whatever lady walks in and give her a fine experience.”
No matter what.
Female sex trade workers service unappealing clients all the time. If they’re grossed out or turned off, nobody needs to know; they can still do their job.
So I guess what I’m wondering is, if a male sex trade worker was completely grossed out by a client, would he be able to just close his eyes, use his imagination, and get the job done anyway?
