What makes a gigolo?

“The heart of a saint, the mind of a philosopher, and the skills of the devil”--so says 25-year-old “Markus,” a former Marine and America's first legal male prostitute. Call him what you want, but he certainly has his product definition down pat:

“There's five things I think that separate a gigolo from the average man: number one being the psychological profile—how he was raised, his upbringing, his thought, his morality, what he views as right and wrong. He must have the heart of a saint, the mind of a philosopher, and the skills of the devil—that's the second qualification. The third one is I never refer to any woman as a bitch, ho, twat, cunt, or any of those terms. It offends me. Women don't pay for sex, they pay for experience. And luckily for me, I don't have that much experience with sex, but I have the mentality and the emotion and gumption to make them feel the way they want to feel. And if I complete that through sex, too—which I'm a very good performer in that respect, too—my mission's accomplished. The fourth thing that separates a gigolo is a gigolo knows how to cook, clean, and do the things necessary to upkeep himself. He's totally independent. He can cook a 3-course meal, and at the same time, serve wine.”

But his most provocative line: “It's just the same as when Rosa Parks decided to sit at the front instead of the back. She was proclaiming her rights as a disadvantaged, African-American older woman. And I'm doing the same.”

More of his well-expressed, um, philosophy here. And an AP story here. Too bad he maintains a women-only policy. Or I'd consider swinging by Nevada one of these days. Just to score an interview. (Evil grin)

PLUS: “Scared of the big, bad 'prostidude'?” The entry of a male hooker is roiling Nevada's brothel scene. Salon's Tracy Clark-Flory wonders “whether there's a stereotype at play here--that of the straight male hooker who gets paid to do something he would happily do for free.”

You're such a tease, Gibbs.

You should've posted the pic where he shows his million-dollar smile.

Well-played, sir, well-played.

If I can find a "prostitude" who can quote or inform his "why I am prostitue" dialogue with ideas from Freud, I'll hire him on the spot.
