    ‘Prostidude’ starts work at Nevada brothel
    Country’s first legal gigolo courts controversy, mid-market female clientele



    BEATTY, Nev. - A brothel in a Nevada desert town has hired the state's first male prostitute, a muscular college dropout who abandoned a brief stint as a porn actor in Los Angeles to become the only legal gigolo in the United States.

    The Shady Lady Ranch successfully won state and county approval to clear the way for the "prostidude," as Nevada's newest sex worker is already being called. After a slow first week on the job, his first appointments are scheduled for this weekend.

    The male prostitute — known as "Markus" — has quickly become the center of attention in Nevada's brothel industry.

    He has been criticized by female counterparts for not being willing to have sex with men. And he created a dustup after telling Details Magazine that his pioneering role in the sex business was "just the same" as civil rights icon Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat and move to the back of the bus. Not surprisingly, he has been forbidden from doing interviews after the remarks.

    Competing brothel owners also fret that hiring gigolos in Nevada will bring unwanted scrutiny from state officials, potentially tempting them to make prostitution illegal. The competitors have also expressed concerns about sexually transmitted diseases, and worry that female customers can't be inspected as carefully as men are before sex.

    Markus, 25, described himself as a well-read college dropout and former U.S. Marine from Alabama. He said he drove to Los Angeles to become a porn actor and left after filming two scenes, the first about a month ago. He said he ended up in a homeless shelter near Santa Monica, Calif., after being unable to find another job.

    'Empowered'
    Shady Lady madam Bobbi Davis picked him from about 10 potential hires culled from hundreds of applications, many featuring crude inquiries, according to her husband and co-owner Jim. Part of Markus' appeal was that he was not afraid to deal with heavy publicity.

    "Whichever woman may walk through that door, she's appreciated," Markus said in his Details interview. "A surrogate lover will love that woman for a whole hour, or however much we charge here, and she'll leave feeling much more empowered and much more confident in herself."

    Jim Davis told The Associated Press that after reading the article, he and his wife decided that Markus doing interviews was bad for business. Bobbi Davis declined an interview with the AP. The Davises declined to give Markus' real name, which is customary for sex workers in Nevada.

    Davis said the Shady Lady had received dozens of e-mails expressing interest in the gigolo. He said it took years to establish steady business from truckers, salesmen and other travelers after the brothel opened 17 years ago, and getting paying women customers could take at least a month.

    "This is a business — if (Bobbi Davis) didn't think she could make more money she wouldn't have done it," Davis said. "Why else would she start something like this?

    "And if she knew what she was getting into, she probably wouldn't have," he said.

    I certainly would not. He's way too polished to be interesting.

    I have too much self respect to visit a brothel. The answer is a firm and resounding, "NO."

    MAYBE for free and after a few drinks. Would I pay money for him? No way. I can't imagine any woman paying him either. He has a certain look that I don't think many women find attractive.

    Well, unless my partner were to agree, no. But otherwise sure, why not? What's wrong with getting a little history under my belt? (AHEM...)

    The best guy I ever saw? No. But how many other tricks were? The novelty & notoriety alone would be worth the experience.

    And BTW, good for him! How many of us will ever be associated with a new word in the English lexicon: prostidude.

    That look would be called shame.

    Understood, but I don't see it as a matter of type. He's not BF material for me, either, but what are we talking about here?

    Pay-for-sex is like a candy vending machine: you put your money in, and the treat drops down. Do you think I care much what he looks like when he's sucking my cock like a Hoover, and I've got my eyes closed? Or I'm fucking him doggie style, my favorite position?

    To me that kind of sex is entirely physical. And I can get into that, because I know that's all it is. My preference? Loving, romantic sex, what I have now with my partner, why I don't need this guy. But if I were single again, I'd pinpoint him on my GPS without hesitation, if I were heading out that way.

    Really all I meant is that I don't find him all that attractive, and if I met him in a bar I wouldn't think, "Wow what a hotty." I was thinking of the OP's question more in terms of, "would I have sex with him?" period, not so much as, "would I pay to have sex with him?" icon_smile.gif

    I'm also not really into the idea of just physical sex, but I can see how your logic makes sense in that vein of thought.

    I don't think I've ever hung out near his cave, so I doubt our paths will cross.

    Check his knuckles, though. That one doesn't look like he's been walking upright for long.
