While this is not a service I'd be interested in, if I were, I agree with S. $50 to $75 per hour seems reasonable.

I'd agree with the rates slovestravel and Quinn have noted. Now, are ancillary expenses included, such as tux rental? (And a slight t/j, but do companions deduct these work expenses?).

JCM, your thoughts on that rate?  I hope you don't think that we are mocking or being insincere (tone is lost when writing). I'm genuinely curious to see if you can make a go of this. Do you have a website yet?  Are you limiting yourself to your local area?  Have you given thought to how you will navigate the dance of expectations (will women expect certain services?).

I agree that the rates seem reasonable and actually do think there would be some interest (though, It would be a niche in an already niche market.  I've already told you, but I think they key for you might be your dancing skills. 

A few more things to think about:

Be prepared for clients who might think, "oh, he's just saying that because he has to..."

Would you offer cuddles and affection or would it be strictly conversation? If the former, you would want to think about how you would present that to your client so that signals don't get crossed into them expecting more and then feeling "cheated" or hurt whet doesn't transpire. 

I echo what LiquidFyre said about emotional, mental, and intellectual intimacy.  I obviously can't speak for all female clients, but I'm willing to bet that you can expect a client to desire those three things, platonic date or not.

As it turns out, someone I know in the dancing world was talking to a friend of mine recently about renting him out as a wedding date, so I may have a lead in that respect.
For multi-day trips, I wouldn't be opposed to cuddling but would have established boundaries as Maxime does on his website.
I was thinking more of a base price to cover tux and travel within a given distance (say 100 miles) and then an additional 25-50/hour for the duration of the event.

On the emotional connection, I am the type of person that lots of people, men and women, will open up to and feel at ease around; I believe I manage those relationships well, and don't foresee anything too drastically different in what I should encounter.

I have been toying with a website, I've written up most of my text, and may well post it here before publishing a site, to get everyone's opinion. Other than the realm of time and travel cost, I wouldn't be opposed to traveling as long as I could fit it in my schedule and was being fairly compensated for it.

Thanks everyone for the thoughts and questions!

I was reading some oooooold threads and someone mentioned a site called RentAFriend.  So that may be something for you to check out, JCM.

Personally, I look for companions who offer both platonic dates and something more intimate.  I don't want to commit to the intimacy portion right off the bat, so I'd book for a social date and then if things go in the right direction and the chemistry is there.... go for the -ahem- upgrade. ;-)

This is such a fascinating conversation, as it combines the two points that attract me most to the field. On the one hand, there are the obvious, bionic-hip-straining-activities; but on the other, theres a lovely, intellectual seduction that is, to me, equally as fun.

Sure, we all want someone with whom to verbally Salsa, but lets face it: those relationships wander in and out of our lives regularly for free. What comes at a premium, and what, I think were all here for (correct the newbie if he misspeaks), is that balance between the two. No?

I think a lot of women want a good dose of both, but as always there are exceptions to the rule.

Fair enough. Some people are looking for a balance of salsas and some people just want salsa, straight-up. Extra spicy;)

I agree that most clients will want to see companions for intimate and social occasions. If you are looking only to offer your services for social occasions try rent-a-gent or some its competitors.

Interesting to read all posts here. The straight male escort market is a niche market indeed. Almost 100% of our bookings include intmicy and sex. Just social dates with a straight male companion is not realistic, there's no demand for that. This is one of the many preconceptions.

We do lots of media, like TV in the UK, Germany and Holland, and we always get the same questions. During the past years we even have made a long list of questions and answers in 3 languages that we often use for media. It's unbelievable how many preconceptions exist. And they all are the same!!! LOL. Reason: movies and documentaries are created behind desks without any knowledge of the real high class straight male escort market. The format makers... /ROTFL Just when it's almost finished, media and film producers asks us for advice and/or interviews. The only goal for them is to earn money and therefore they are looking for confirmation of all the preconceptions. Meaning their "format" should not be destroyed with the truth.

Bottom line is we always enjoy doing media, and explain how things work. So if you have any questions just let us know  /thumbsup
