In an interview for the Hookies Awards, Daniels said, “My favorite thing about escorting is the people I meet, the experiences it gives me, and the travel and the compensation for my time is always nice too. Regardless of whether the meeting didn’t go so well people never cease to disappointment and many clients have given me enough material to write a book and at least a few sequels.”
It was only a matter of time before his compilation of experiences was turned into a full book: "Money’s On the Dresser" was born and is available to purchase just in time for the ho-ho-holidays!

It is Thanksgiving Eve and all us rentboys are getting ready for a full day of cooking, eating, drinking, and no doubt some hot action somewhere in that mix. With such a diverse group of guys celebrating across the country, we asked them how they will be spending the holiday weekend with friends, family, and maybe a few clients.
Rentboy and new porn pup TONY ORION (www.rentboy.com/TonyOrion) will be spending Turkey Day with his alpha, ALEKS BULDOCEK (www.rentboy.com/AleksBuldocek), "Aleks and I will probably hit the gym and come back home to stuff our faces and fuel our muscles, watch movies, and have great sex!" When asked what he was most thankful for this year Tony proudly exclaimed, "I’m thankful for having a family of two beautiful and amazing partners with whom I can share this and future holidays."
RYAN ROSE (www.rentboy.com/RyanRose), our new Face of Rentboy in North America admits to taking some time off from perfecting his gorgeous body in the gym to devote his time and energy to celebrating the holiday the right way, "I’ll be stuffing my fat face with as much food until I’m about to explode, then I’ll lay on the couch watching football until I slowly slip into a food coma."
This season is an especially busy time for Rentboys, when clients fly in from all across the world looking for good company on Thanksgiving weekend. Unfortunately for their fans, many Rentboys take a few days off to themselves.
"I usually take the holiday off to spend time with family and friends. Some days just need to be taken off" says 2013 Hookies Award winner for Best Fetish Escort DRAVEN TORRES (www.rentboy.com/DravenTorres).
Mister International Escort of the Year 2013, CHRISTOPHER DANIELS (www.rentboy.com/ChristopherDaniels) usually spends the day with a regular client from Canada, "We’re both Canadian so we usually end up talking about how the U.S. has the date wrong when Thanksgiving is ACTUALLY celebrated in October!"
Regardless of whether or not rentboys spend Thanksgiving on or off the clock, they all agree that this is the time of year to be reflecting on all of the great achievements and blessings they have and share with those closest to them. "I’m really grateful for my health and the love of my family and friends. As long as I have love in my heart and around me nothing else matters," says Draven Torres.

The second episode released starred our hot Aussie bum TATE RYDER (www.rentboy.com/TateRyder) with the equally gorgeous Topher DiMaggio. The duo definitely look great in their high fashion apparel, but things only get hotter once the ties, belts, and accessories come off, and Tate goes after Topher’s beautiful, thick cock!
DUNCAN BLACK (www.rentboy.com/DuncanBlack) and Christian Wilde couldn’t be any hotter in their scene together! Mr.Pam, director of the film, proudly exclaimed, “Duncan LOVES to get fucked… loves loves loves it, and Christian was the perfect power top to dick him down and give him what his hole was begging for!”

The difference between a monthly and a travel ad is in their name: monthly ads run over monthly increments whereas travel ads give you a minimum of 5 days to advertise in your chosen city. Read more about Travel Ads here: http://blog.rentboy.com/post/64879752264
Generally, a monthly ads start at $32.95 or £19.95 and travel ads at $9.80 or £4.90. Another important fact to note is that ads placed in higher populated cities like New York City, London, and San Francisco will cost more than ads in Peoria, Arizona or Cambridge, UK.
The great part about advertising in those higher populated cities is that your ad will receive a lot more traffic as more potential customers will be looking at them and, in turn, hiring you!

In December 2011, about seven months before he died, Gore Vidal turned to his good friend Scotty Bowers as the two relaxed in Vidal’s home in the Hollywood Hills. “You suppose we could find Bob and bring him over?” the frail, nostalgic Vidal asked. “Bob” was Bob Atkinson, a favorite male escort of Vidal’s whom Bowers had first set him up with around 60 years prior. They had long lost touch. “Gore liked Bob because he had been in the Navy and he had a cock as big as a baby’s arm,” says Bowers, who recorded his life as a trick, then pimp, to Hollywood’s rich and famous in the book Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars.
