I admit it, I watch Showtime’s series “Gigolos”.
While not a consistent viewer (I only recently discovered it mid-season last year), I am HOOKED. Why? Because it is absolutely OPPOSITE of what we’re primed to see on television.
We’ve already had “Secret Confessions of a Call Girl” and then there was “Cathouse: The Series”, which while quite titillating at times when it was on the air, doesn’t quite equal to Gigolos, where we get to see male escorts being paid to rock women’s worlds.
And it’s raw.
The show is set in Vegas and centered around a group of five men who are part of an agency called Cowboys 4 Angels.
Their job is officially to escort women to various venues around the city. Or in one case, take a limo ride around Vegas and use the back seat in ways you never thought possible. Yeah, tickling these gals’ insides is what these guys do. No apologies. They are peacock proud.
And while these men are all pretty studly, they do range in looks, which I find quite interesting—especially when it comes to Brace, the vet of the group. Bleach blonde, and rock muscled, Brace has to be at least, what…45 years old?! Yeah! Not a 20-year old stud at all. But very tanned, and very particular about the girls he likes. In other words, a bit shallow, given that he’s at the peak of his career. But when it comes to the rough and tumble, our guy keeps up with the best of ’em, I have to say. BTW, he’s our back-of-the-limo-lover!
Then there’s Vin, the man-of-color, who in this past episode brought a remote control vibe on his ‘date’ and asked her to insert it so they could “play” while sitting at the bar. After her shock, she agreed. Barring a few technical difficulties, it started to vibrate and she looked like she was going to pass out. They continued the fun upstairs–and this is what’s gasp-worthy about this show, they reveal all the positions. We see just how round his ass is when he’s going at it from behind. We’re able to see how strong he is when he’s picked up a woman and thrown her legs over his shoulders.
This is a constant close-up on this show–the ass-shot.
You get to see these men working their assets and for that I’m going to get old school and throw big two thumbs up. In fact, this show is probably the only time in my life where I’ve repeatedly yelled, “Damn!” to the television in delight. The movie screen for Magic Mike was another episode, but that was a bit more quiet.
But let’s just get this clear–you will not learn life lessons from Gigolos.
However, you will discover who the women are that hire these men, and I think it’s pretty interesting. You’d think they’d all be lonely, unattractive gals. Nope. They are all over the map. From lawyers in town on business to attractive party planners who don’t have time for relationships. There are widows who are getting back in the field and want to “clear the cobwebs” so-to-speak. Of course, there’s the proverbial unhappily married women stories as well. But for the most part, what you have are confident women looking for a little fun with a gorgeous man and willing to pay the price and bypass all the bullshit game playing you find in clubs, online, etc.
And for that, I actually applaud them! They don’t seem to have any shame in their game on this show. In fact, they seem downright proud to hire their man-toy for the night.
Men have been doing it forever. And in this show, sisters are doing it for themselves!
So I ask you ladies, if you could, would YOU hire a gigolo?
