Overview

Beyond lust, create companionship with your sex workers!

Many more men are willing to buy sex than to admit the fact. Joseph Itiel is not only willing to admit it--he has the courage and style to create “virtual” relationships with hustlers. These ongoing professional relationships are a step beyond cold, anonymous sex for sale. Though the economic basis remains the same--an open exchange of cash for sex--the association is also honest, affectionate, and sexually fulfilling. He explains how you can do the same in Sex Workers as Virtual Boyfriends, a companion volume to his best-selling A Consumer's Guide to Male Hustlers (Haworth 1998).

From his own experience, stretching over four decades and many nations, the author suggests ways to transform the relationship between a client and his escort from a crass commercial transaction to a true camaraderie. Sex Workers as Virtual Boyfriends also offers an intimate glimpse into the gay lifestyle in San Francisco and around the world before the AIDS epidemic and in these days of safer sex.

Sex Workers as Virtual Boyfriends presents practical tips and real-life vignettes, including:

  • an experiment to help you decide if you could be a sex worker (See if you measure up!)
  • an appendix containing a comprehensive list of sex workers advertising on the World Wide Web
  • seven guidelines for friendly relations with your escort
  • a guide to the etiquette of negotiable affection
Sex Workers as Virtual Boyfriends is shocking, sexy, literate, and fun. It also can help you find the affection you want--at a price you can afford.

    A Boyfriend of a Different Sort!

    A fascinating, informative, and valuable in depth study about the interactions between a sex worker (formerly called Hustler) and a client that establishes the rules & requirements necessary to become ¿virtual boyfriends¿, and the positive results you can expect from this different sort of boyfriend relationship. This book is an indispensable aid for anyone seeking the services of a sex worker. Additionally, it is a valuable resource for sex workers who want to have a more meaningful and closer relationship with their clients. Joseph Itiel has amassed over four decades of experience with sex workers, and he relates his mostly positive experiences with a refreshing openness & honesty. Joseph believes meaningful relationships between a sex worker and client can be possible with considerable effort and that love need not be involved in the relationship. The personal stories he tells of his own and others¿ experiences with many sex workers are truly captivating reading. In Chapter Two he explains the differences between hiring someone from an agency and on the internet, and the advantages & disadvantages of advance bookings. Chapter Six deals with sex plus relationships and how the relationship between client and sex worker can be more than an exchange of money for sex. It can be an intellectual pursuit, a spiritual practice, and a time of shared social activities. It may even become a nonsexual friendship beneficial to both parties. I thought Chapter 13 was extremely useful and important with it¿s seven guidelines to make the working relationship with a sex worker a more friendly, emotional and positive experience. All of the chapters are filled with constructive information that you can use. This book is complete with an appendix of sex worker¿s web sites to help you get started. I guarantee you will not be able to put this book down once you start it, so plan ahead and keep a few hours open. This book is perfect for anyone considering a virtual relationship with a sex worker or as a helpful guide for an experienced client. Be sure and read Joseph Itiel¿s first book ¿A Consumer¿s Guide to Male Hustlers¿, another ground-breaking study and a primer for this book. Either book can be read independently, but make sure you read both for the complete picture. Highly recommended!
