First Legal Gigolo Says No to Men


In a move that could prove counterintuitive to his economic survival, the first and only man to be legally hired as a sex worker in Nevada says he won't service male customers.

According to the Associated Press, the sex worker, who uses the name "Markus," was hired recently by the Shady Lady Ranch, a brothel about 30 miles north of Beatty, a small town between Las Vegas and Reno.

"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," reported the AP. "After a slow first week on the job, his first appointments are scheduled for this weekend."

However, if left to "Markus," the upsurge in traffic will have nothing to do with male customers. The 25-year-old former Marine and failed porn star has announced that he will not have sex with men, a decision that brothel co-owners Bobbi and Jim Davis are disinclined to challenge.

"Davis said that he and his wife aren't interested in establishing a gay male clientele, but it will be up to Markus to decide whether to accept men as customers," reported the AP. "Davis said Markus told him that he wouldn't perform for male customers."

That reluctance has become a point of contention with other brothel owners, who are already concerned about potential new health and safety challenges raised by a male sex worker in a key state industry.

Prices at the brothel run from $200 for 40 minutes to $300 for an hour of service, according to the AP.
