Matthew has been a male escort for the past eight years in London. He entered the personal entertainment industry after completing his undergraduate studies in Business Management from a reputable business school in London. He has always considered himself as a creative individual and after doing a nine-to-five repetitive desk job for a couple of years following his graduation, he thought of an outside-the-box solution of making some money.
In his opinion, people may think that becoming a successful male escort is an easy job but it is very difficult to become and remain a man of desire catering to the needs of the clients for such a prolonged period. In his opinion, there are certain prerequisites that needs to be fulfilled for a man to become decent at this job.
According to the 33-year old, the first and foremost prerequisite for the job is to have an attractive physique. Looks do matter, the adage that do not judge a books my its cover is seldom observed. Once they get to know the gentlemen better then they then take interest in things beyond physical appearance. No one would be prepared to pay for the company of someone who is not willing to invest in their own fitness. It does mean every gentleman should rock an eight pack, but a beer belly just doesn’t cut it.
An attractive look is not that achieve and maintain. You need to be physically active and have some discipline in your diet. And once you have the fitness you need to ensure you drape that good looking bod with a well fitted clothes, a dress for every occasion is a must for this job. As a professional you will be going on a variety of dates, from attending a black-tie event, or go to a resort wearing only a swimsuit and sunglasses.
Physical finesse is only one part of your job. An attractive physical appearance should be complemented with a personality that is adaptable according to the needs of your clients. Beauty should not be skin deep. Some clients are interested in only emotional companionship. The Birmingham-born narrated an incident where a husband hired him to hit on his wife in a bar as she had lost confidence in her appearance following the birth of their second daughter. Matthew went up to her, while her husband was sitting at a distance. He went up to her and asked her for a dance. She agreed and they both danced. Matthew complemented her generously without being overly flirtatious to give her the confidence booster she needed. All ladies are especial and it’s nice for them to be reminded that.
Matthew thinks that a good male escort should also be a good listener as well. Women like to talk and need someone who takes an active interest in what they have to say. In addition to this, a good escort should be spontaneous and well practiced in the art of small talk. They should be able to keep up a conversation that is indulging and interesting for their client as it truly enhances the experience.
On a personal level, a good male escort should know how to compartmentalize various aspects of his life. His personal and professional life should remain separate from each other. A certain level of discretion is required for this life. A male escort will find that he cannot share with everyone about his profession. The hours on this job are very flexible but they can be brutal as well. Matthew remembers staying with a client in a resort outside London for three days and then coming back home at 3 am. The next day, there was an afternoon appointment and at night he had to leave with a client to Monaco for the weekend. This makes it challenging taking out time for time for family, friends and other commitments.
Last but not the least, if you are a new entrant in this industry you should try and find someone from the old guard to show you the ropes and mentor you. That would do wonders for you.
