David Pevsner - My Life As Gay Prostitute

In his memoir, Damn Shame, David Pevsner writes about feeling aroused by the very idea of having sex with men as part of his job. As the years went by, he found himself feeling increasingly attracted to the idea of sex work. So after years of exploring his sexuality through bathhouses and leather bars, David decided to try out his ultimate fantasy – and it was everything he could have dreamed of.

“I know plenty of guys who have done it, and everybody has a different experience,” he says. “My experience was very pleasurable. It taught me a lot about myself, it taught me a lot about men. When I was escorting, it wasn’t just about, ‘I show up, I f**k and I make money’ – it was so not just that, because I was dealing with individual people.

It wasn’t until David started escorting that he was forced to challenge all of those preconceptions he had about what makes a man sexy.

“Escorting really changed how I looked at men’s bodies,” David says. “ I was trying to deal with my struggle about how I felt about his body, which I think about now and I just go, that’s ridiculous. But it’s what happened as part of my journey. And then came escorting, where I was having sex with a lot of guys whose bodies were not ‘the ideal’, but I still had to perform sexually. How do you do that? You start to look at a guy differently. It made me look at personality and brains and humour. I had to because I was being paid, but what it was doing was it changed my aesthetic when it came to men. I was much more open about the physicality of men, and from that point on it really changed me.”

Escorting wasn’t the only way David expressed his sexuality – he also did numerous erotic photoshoots over the years with a wide variety of photographers. That led to him curating his own Tumblr account where he shared his pictures with fans all across the world. Later, after Tumblr banned adult content, he moved to OnlyFans.

“OnlyFans is a great place, because it’s very much the case that you are there because you want to be there,” David says. “You pay to be there, so it’s not like it’s going on XTube where just anybody can click on it and have an opinion. I’m not interested in your opinion, I just want to do my work.

“I started posting those videos and I started shooting more and more stuff, and I found that I can approach the videos I shoot the same way I approach the photoshoots, the same way I approach my acting work, the same way I approach escorting – there’s lots of layers to everything. When I shoot a video, sometimes it has a story to it. Sometimes it’s a role play, and sometimes it’s just me shoving a dildo up my ass. But I’m not going to post it if it’s just a one layer thing.”

The main thing, of course, is that David is enjoying exploring his sexuality with the world on OnlyFans. But it’s about more than just enjoyment – he also thinks it’s important that men his age show the world that they can still turn people on.

“Doing this, to me, feels like activism,” he says. “A 60-something year old guy filming these videos, putting them up shamelessly, and saying: ‘This is what I do at home.’”

“Everybody had different needs, everybody had different ways of asking for their needs. As an actor, I found it fascinating the characters that I met – some really sweet people who were either lonely or needy or hungry – whatever it was, I always tapped into it. It turns out, I enjoyed it. Sorry everybody who wants to take sex work and put shame on it – my personal experience of it was great.”

Somebody who CHOOSES sex work out of hedonistic desire, instead of desperation/need, is of course going to have a positive experience compared to those who feel they have no choice. That's not really surprising.

It is still interesting because many people, especially feminists, still deny that anyone would pursue this life voluntarily and without pressure from external forces. I think these feminists are only talking about female prostitutes and don't give a shit about gay men who are in this life, so I don't think sure David's experience would change any of their minds.

[R40] Receiving money from OnlyFans is not being self employed. It’s being part of the porn industry, with even less self-esteem. Again, by making money from this, he’s the same as anyone chained to a desk/phone in corporate America, the same as any big tittie porn star getting plowed in all holes in the valley or someone working in Macy’s, looking forward to their tuna salad sandwich in the break room. They’re all corporate whores being controlled by men.

Let's be clear, Pevsner is not much of an actor. He fucked himself to the lower third, not even the middle. He has one Broadway credit and three Off-Broadway credits for gay plays that required nudity. Christ, it appears the guy couldn't even score a production of "Jeffery". Jay Rogers has more credits than Pevsner.

It always fascinates me how differently males and female sex workers, on average, tend to feel about what they do. It seems female sex workers are more likely to have a negative outlook when compared to their male counterparts. Gee, I wonder why...

I ended up stripping for a brief time (another long, tragic, boring-ass story) and it was the most degrading, nightmarish, vomit-inducing experience of my entire life. The clientele...dear God.

On the flip side, I know a few former male strippers, and most of them have no qualms about openly discussing their "man-titty bar" pasts. They tend to look upon the memories almost jovially.

Even Cardi B's ratchet self talks about her stripper past with shame.

He is a top across the pond who hooks up with married, straight sexually repressed guys who want to try it up their bumhole or in their mouth. I LOVE when he starts kissing and making out with them and they just give in and go for it. They just let him take them however he wants. His videos can be very sensual or on the dominant side depending on the energy of the guy. He has an average body and a nice cock. The guys are average, which I really like as well, average everyday guys. It's hot to me to see something really passionate, something real.

He sang some awful, awful songs that he had written and told some terrible stories. I guess if he weren't so hideous looking I wouldn't have minded, but he's hard to look at....and did I mention the songs were awful?

He did mention early on about meeting a movie star leading man at the Golden Globes and being fucked by him in the star's dressing room.....and then seemed to give clues that the star was Tom Cruise.
