Rentboy and Men4Rent

I might be having my first experience with an escort tonight, but I'm a little wary about one thing: Do cops use Men4Rent or Rentboy to trap people? Should I ask the guy point-blank whether or not he's a cop? I never thought I'd do anything like this, but it's been a year since my ex and I broke up...I'm pretty desperate to connect with someone else on a physical level.

And so you feel you need to hire someone?!

by Anonymousreply 108/07/2010

Yes, R1, I do feel the need to hire someone. I've only been on 2 dates in the past year, and I pushed both guys away because things didn't immediately lead to a deep and profound relationship (I posted about it here and got lambasted, so yes, I feel pretty silly). I need the physical closeness of sex...not just to get off, but to feel wanted, attractive, useful, interesting...even if I have to pay for it :(

by Anonymousreply 208/07/2010

Have fun, op. Just relax.

by Anonymousreply 308/07/2010

R2 How can you feel attractive, wanted etc. if you're paying for it?

by Anonymousreply 408/07/2010

See you in jail, OP.

by Anonymousreply 508/07/2010

R4: Because if he's worth the money he's charging, the escort is going to put on a hell of a show and make me feel that way.

by Anonymousreply 608/07/2010

You pushed away two guys that actually wanted to go out with you because it didn't immediately lead to something beyond the superficial, yet you are depending on someone you pay to make you feel special. That doesn't make sense, OP.

They rapin' errbody out there

by Anonymousreply 808/07/2010

OP, don't get caught up in the feeling of being wanted, attractive etc. Concentrate more on the fun aspect. A good escort will make you feel good, but if you want to be emotionally fulfilled you will eventually be disappointed.%0D %0D Just enjoy having good sex.

OP, if you're scared of it being a police sting, I'd suggest you wait until tomorrow and go down to Club 20, where some of the hot straight dancers escort on the side.

by Anonymousreply 1008/07/2010

OP, yes, there have been isolated cases in which vice cops have placed false ads as escorts to entrap people. There have also been cases where escorts were arrested and vice cops stuck around to arrest their next "date" who showed up for a scheduled tryst.

But you would be at much greater risk picking up someone off the street, or through Craig's List, than you would from an established website like Rentboy, which charges a lot of money to list escort ads, not likely something a vice cop would be willing to do.

If you want better assurance, make sure you pick someone whose ad has been there for some time, or who you see on more than one such site. Better yet, check out Daddy's Reviews (used to be called Hooboy), a site that reviews escorts, where you can not only verify an ad is legit, but have some "consumer reports"-type feedback on whether the person was a dud or a stud. Their message boards are also kind of interesting, with stories of escorts that were unusually bad or good, what to expect, how to handle the money issue (bad idea to give him the money up front, but should leave it out where he can see it.) and other matters.

Have a good, safe time.

Be careful OP, I've heard that cops sometimes implant tiny video cameras in escorts rectums. So, when they present their hole to you they're actually taking your picture

by Anonymousreply 1208/07/2010

The USA is a troubled fucked up country with all related to sex. Go on vacation to some country where prostitution isn%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99t illegal. Furthermore, where rent boys are even cheaper and less robotic and drug wasted. Argentina is a fine choice, plenty of options on the Internet and it%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s not illegal as long as it%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s just between client and prostitute because pimps are illegal. But the best advice would be to not try with escorts as it%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s a very hollow experience. Whether there, in Argentina, China or the moon, there%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s always a chance that you could end up mugged or with a very unsatisfactory experience as the escort is only thinking about the money and ending up as soon as possible, even if you are as handsome as Apollo, something that I suspect you aren%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99t. And the prettier the escort the easier it is that he%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s completely nuts, it%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s not rocket science. Even a bad experience with a stranger could be better than a simulacrum with a whore whose emotions has to be concealed and therefore are more dangerous. Meanwhile you can count with your hand, that one that never fails you and is always faithful.

by Anonymousreply 1308/07/2010

Well, R13, I read several of the reviews of the escorts at the Daddy link, and according to the Apollos who are with them, most of the escorts are really into their experiences, even though they are 20something guys with men at least 20 years older than them and who claim they are in "decent" shape for someone their age. And most of the escorts are straight, mostly straight or bi. So I guess you're mistaken.

by Anonymousreply 1408/07/2010

R14. The reviews posted on their interest are trust worthy a 100%. There%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s special program that automatically detects escorts trying to flatter themselves so it%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s impossible for them or their friends to lie about that. It is known that some escorts even marry to their clients %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%93where it is legal that is- and they live happily ever after! There are even movies about the subject. I mean, DUH, it wouldn%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99t be an escort service if emotions aren%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99t deeply involved. And we all know that bad escorts are forbidden to advertise. It%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s absolutely unheard of escorts mugging people, I mean, they charge for sex, they don%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99t need to do that stuff, even if they are desperate. They have an easy life and they stay sober all the time, they do that job because they love sex, not because they need drugs or that bad evil stuff. I mean, DUH. And even in the remote possibility that a client is fugly %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%93something that rarely happens- and that the escort is tired, there is VIAGRA, DUH, everyone know that that pill makes beauty appear in front of your eyes and it works like magic. I don%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99t like people ruining others fantasy. I mean, you have to be mean to do it. I would advise to write a poem to the escort of your choice and read it aloud once you meet him. He won%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99t charge you, he%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99ll do it for free, I promise.

Use Craigslist :)

by Anonymousreply 1808/08/2010

enjoy, op. i used an escort or two at a time in my life when i needed some physical contact, but didn't have the emotionally ability to date or even just find a trick, and i enjoyed the experiences immensely. sometimes you DO get what you pay for! ;-) ps- i used hooboy's, and it never steered me wrong. don't know much about it now that it's daddy's, as these days i'm dating again, or if truly desperate, hit craigslist for some nsa fun.

In Las Vegas and Los Angeles, Craig's List is often used by vice cops to set up stings. It costs them nothing, and all they need is an e-mail address.

by Anonymousreply 2008/08/2010

OP, enjoy your rentboy but I'd recommend that you don't use the same one twice. %0D %0D A good escort can indeed make you feel fabulous about yourself, and if you get that feeling from the same guy more than once you're going to start like you'e found the relationship you're looking for. That way lies madness.

by Anonymousreply 2108/08/2010

Used Rentboy/men twice in Vegas with no problem. Like another poster said look for the "regulars" who advertises often.

by Anonymousreply 2208/08/2010

You can't go wrong with pornstars. Sure, they cost a pretty penny, but when you're obsessed about the possibility to be the victim of an undercover sting operation it's money well spent.

Just check all those escort review forums whether the guy you're about to hire is not some regular no show.

by Anonymousreply 2308/18/2010

No place compares with Montreal Canada. Saint Catherine Street Est. Tons of dancers and escorts of all ages (mostly young ones (18 -19). Montreal cops don't bother with escorts. Montreal is known for its gay red light district. All and as much as you want with no worries.

OP, please don't do it!

by Anonymousreply 2508/13/2011

OP, don't use Craigslist, too dangerous, both for unsavory escorts and potential cops. Rentboy is OK. Use R11's link to see if your choice is discussed. As noted, you could also go to Club 20 or Adonis Lounge and get a sampling of potential guys (some have ads on rentboy). A cop isn't going to go through the trouble of giving lap dances all night just to nab a client.

R25/R26: you got served. Read the posting dates: OP hasn't been on this thread for over a *year*, and it was bumped by a rather curious troll who seems to get off on bumping threads that expired just over a year prior. I've seen at least a half-dozen instances of this now just in the past few weeks.

by Anonymousreply 2708/13/2011

Run the name of whomever you choose through the forums on Daddysreviews. A lot of the ads are fakes or scams.

by Anonymousreply 2808/13/2011

OP, if you ask the undercover cop point blank if he's a cop, it's perfectly ok for him to lie to you. There is no rule that impels them to tell the truth while investigating a crime.

OP.a couole of ways to avoid an arrest (or at least serious charges)

Make it clear that you are paying him just to dance for you or clean your house or sing songs to you or walk the cat. Whatever. Those things are not illegal. Any sexual activity would be of his own free will.

Leave the money on the dresser. Do not hand it to him. A good defense lawyer will argue that the nubile y%C3%B3ung police officer stole the cash by taking it without your consent.

by Anonymousreply 3808/13/2011

why don't you go on manhunt? I've met really nice guys on manhunt and spent several hours with them with incredible sex and closeness. It takes some filtering of responses, but can be very successful. If you post new on manhunt and you are halfway decent you will get at least a half dozen responses in the first two days.

You ain't gonna get no guy like "Aldo" on Manhunt (Aldo is R30's link).

I know they target the guys who advertise on, dont know if they have heard of Rentboy. My friend works in vice and they are very familiar with the men4rentnow site.

by Anonymousreply 4306/18/2012

Anonymous--I get where you are at, emotionally, I think. I broke up with a guy after a 14 year-relationship, tried the bar scene after that, but that didn't work out. I was so sexually dry and horny that I finally paid for a prostitute. I thought it would be a one-night deal (it was New Year's Eve), but I invited him back, and we ended up seeing each other on average every other weekend when I could afford it, over a period of about two years. We became friends, went to Atlantic City a couple of times, I would have him over for dinner, etc. We don't fuck anymore (I've found another guy), but are still friends. So, go for it......just be careful. Best wishes, Man.

So you would risk the possibility of getting a disease because you need to connect with someone on a physical level. Someone you've never met and know nothing about.

Sounds like one of the wisest decisions I've heard all day.

So you would risk the possibility of getting a disease because you need to go to work on a daily basis and earn a living. And you're forced to work with members of the public whom you've never met and know nothing about.

So you would risk the possibility of getting a disease because you need to eat to sustain your health and your food has been prepared or processed by someone else. Someone you've never met and know nothing about.

Chee! There's so much preachment here. The poor guy was asking about the safety of hustlers, not relationship advice. When I turned 55, I turned to the consolation of catamites==yes, hustlers! I said "goodbye" to wanting to feel loved, desired, because I suddenly felt like my personal characters were stellar and that it was too late to give a damn about my sexual desirability. At that point, I met a lover. I attribute that to my friendly goodbye to vanity. We lasted for many years and now that I'm over 70 (!) we're still deeply involved, though not sexually. No worries, I have a lovely young rentboy (with boyfriend's permission)found via an advertisement & see him regularly. I'm lucky, but he is too: I'm clean and I'm a great perwson, so what's not good?
