My name is Terrence Atkins and I decided to become a male escort eight years ago. Now looking back on my
journey comprising of highs and lows, I have a much clearer idea of why I became a male escort and
continued to do so for nearly a decade!
Many people would think that majority of participants enter this profession because they want to bank
on their good looks, make easy money while having fun. One may enter this occupation with these
motivations but they will find as I have that long-term survival is not likely based on looks alone, in fact many of the most sucessful escorts are actually just every day people, certainly not film star good looks. This is
where I think my true intention of entering the personal entertainment industry has helped me in going
for such an extended period.
Although, I consider myself as a handsome individual with an attractive body. I am six feet tall with four
pack abs and arms of a swimmer. I have never been shy in showing off my well-chiseled body. I am still
the first person to go into swimming trunks and sunglasses at a pool party.
My biggest motivation for becoming a companion was to meet new people, understanding their motivations in life and getting to know them, and help deliver something of “value” to them. There have been numerous instances where after knowing a person intimately, I get to listen to a completely different perspective about something that forces me to revisit my own perception. This can be quite an enlightening and humbling experience at the same time.
I have always been an extrovert and this job allows me to bank on that. Amongst my friends and
colleagues, I have been the best at ice breaking with strangers, so in other words I am good at removing
those awkward silences. And I personally get a good feel knowing that I push-started a lively
Just to put it out there, I have graduated from a reputable business school in London, so
even my day job involved me going to a lot of meet and greets and winning over potential clients. The
escort gig was just an extension of what I was good at and already practising.
Once I was hired to pose as a boyfriend by a client in front of her parents and her family at a marriage.
She was constantly nagged for being single. We met at her place an hour before the wedding. She got
me up to speed about her life. She was a botanist and I opted to become an executive at a media and
advertising agency. We met at another wedding for her colleague. She introduced me to everyone in her
family and everyone was looking at us with an envious look. She was gorgeous and we complemented
each other well.
I shared my interests and told everyone how I am a die-hard Tottenham Hotspur fan. I
had interesting debates with numerous Arsenal and Chelsea fans at the wedding. Although I was hired
for two hours, I ended up staying for four hours. I did not charge anything extra to my client, who had to
save for a month to pay my hourly charge. So there are many times in this job, where it is actually a ton
Also being an escort does not bug me in any way for all my life, I have been good at compartmentalizing
and a quick learner. During my undergrad studies, I secured first class grades in all my courses and
worked as a part-time delivery rider at numerous restaurants. I juggled between assignments, reports,
classes and delivering pizza on a given day. This become another reason for opting for this industry, as I
juggled between my professional and personal life. People close to me know about my profession but to
the outside world I am a manager at an event management company.
This acts as a good reason for the odd hours. I adapt myself according to the needs of the client. Sometimes, I bring a tense client into the comfort zone. This happens on occasion when clients opt for escort services for the first time. On other occasions, I have to give control to my clients. This happens after three or four meetings have taken place and the client is comfortable.
So in short I wanted to be a male escort, for it gives me a challenge, and a sense of satisfaction that I
have made someone feel better for a couple of hours. Last but not the least, the extra money always
