Skip to comments.The escorts who want to rebrand male prostitution as a business
Posted on 01/05/2014 2:22:45 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe
"The aim is to be the best escort in the world." Josh Brandon's conviction is punctuated by a strong Welsh valleys accent. The twentysomething moved to London four years ago with dreams of modelling and celebrity.
But soon after his arrival he began working as an escort. Now he has a price list which includes hourly rates and a discount for block booking. He issues loyalty cards so customers who pay for nine "appointments" get their tenth free. ....
"When I won Male Sex Worker of the Year, I texted my dad," says Brandon. "He said: 'I'm proud of you son.'"
Brandon's father, who still lives in the Welsh valleys and works on the railways, is quietly accepting of his son's work. "I know what he does and I don't shout about it from the rooftops. I wouldn't discuss it with my friends. I tell him to be careful but what else can you do? As long as he keeps safe, good luck to him."
There has been a slow societal shift in the acceptability of sex work, says Del Campbell from the Terence Higgins Trust.
"There is a lot less stigma for men who sell sex," he says. "Often, the women are still seen as victims but for some gay men, escorting is now a normal job. You could mention that you're an escort at a dinner party and in some circles, no one would bat an eyelid."

The order in which these things become acceptable (even celebrated) does not matter. But they are all coming, and each victory for the Left makes the next topic just a little easier to get.
“When I won Male Sex Worker of the Year, I
texted my dad,” says Brandon. “He said: ‘I’m
proud of you son.’”
Dad: “I know what he does and I don’t shout about it from the rooftops. I wouldn’t discuss it with my friends.”
He really must appreciate his son sharing his story with the BBC.
First they want to destroy our culture and eradicate Judeo-Christian morality from society completely, and then an immoral and decadent nation will be ready to accept the evil of Communism, the left’s ultimate goal.
Never mind saying such things to the BBC being the equivalent of shouting it from the rooftops.
So just to be clear he’s a male prostitute selling to other men. Which means he’s selling sex to people trying to keep their perversion secret. Probably also to people engaged in some really really sick stuff.
He’ll have aids within a short time.
Quote from the article -
“Nico’s story - familial rejection and drug addiction - might be one many would assume to be the norm, but Brandon is evangelical about clean living.”
Seriously? Why would you use the word evangelical and clean living in a statement about a male who has sex with other males for money?
One of the definitions of evangelical is “enthusiastic for”, but the accepted definition is - “of our in accordance with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” It is not a word that fits in this article outside of another agenda. Just my .02.
A contract is a contract. None of anybody else’s business.
Yuck. I didn’t realize that, but when I saw the pictures accompanying the article, it became obvious. Getting paid to “escort” old hags is bad enough, but I cannot imagine the disgusting things this guy must do for a living.
prostitution is always going to be prostitution IMO
Some things that are seen....can’t be unseen.
Maybe it’s a family tradition?
I guess the San Francisco Bathhouse crowd wouldn't have an issue.
What’s the nickname (equivalent to Oscar, Tony, etc.) for the awards where you’re named Male Sex Worker of the Year, the Dick?
Speechless. Just speechless.
I cannot get my head around this.
I readily understand a parent who still loves their child, even if they don’t approve of what they are doing.
But to wholeheartedly approve it? I cannot fathom it.
Well, it did say “quietly accepting”. That could be interpreted as “Well, I can’t stop him from doing it, so I just love him and don’t bother arguing with him about this any more.”
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
His father should be getting him help.
Arg. I don’t see it that way...if I substitute other things in there and imagine being quietly accepting, it doesn’t fit at best, and at worst, sounds horrendous.
If it had said he was quietly accepting of his son’s homosexuality, I can understand that.
I cannot understand hearing that your offspring is a prostitute, and accepting that. It doesn’t mean you don’t love and care for your child...as a matter of fact, if you don’t accept it, it likely means you care more.
Just my opinion.
He is also rather young looking.
His father is proud of him??!! Holy moley!
Whoa right there, DD. Back up the truck. What do you MEAN he’s selling sex to other MEN? For a while, this seemed like the ideal job...well, maybe after mattress tester.
Brandon's father...is quietly accepting of his son's work. "I know what he does and I don't shout about it from the rooftops. I wouldn't discuss it with my friends.
So either Brandon, or his dad is lying. The "proud" father that wouldn't "discuss it with my friends."
and then one day, his business dropped off.
