America’s First Legal Male Prostitute Will Not Have Sex With Other Dudes. For Any Price

Markus, a stage name, this month becomes America’s first legal male prostitute, thanks to Nevada updating its hooker law to let the dudes take part. But he asks, kindly, that you not call him a prostitute; gigolo will do just fine. The former LA-via-Alabama porn star is taking up at the Shady Lady Ranch, north of Las Vegas, and is offering his services for just $200 for 40 minutes. That’s not a whole lot, given what the ads on Craigslist tell us about male services. But sorry, fellas, you won’t be able to experience for the joy of Markus: he’s not going gay-for-pay.

“I don’t discriminate based on race, color, creed, ethnicity, or skin tone. Notice I left gender out. That’s for a reason,” he tells Details. Yep, he’s only there for the ladies.

I think gay people are very put-together. I think they’re very classy, very well-organized people. They have great personalities. I have nothing against them, but that’s not me. And as the first male that’s entering this field legally in the entire United States, I’d like to assert my rights and say that I can sit here and have a decent conversation, but I draw the line at that. In the adult industry they said, “Well you’re not going to make enough money. The equation’s already set—you have to go gay for pay if you want to make the big bucks.” So, that’s prostitution, in my opinion. That’s disrespect to the artist. My sphincter isn’t for sale. But what is for sale is companionship—total appreciation for whoever walks through that door. I’m not saying I’m special. I’m not saying that I’m better than anyone, but I’m definitely unique. And I think it’s a good thing.

So if we just want to cuddle and hold hands, would that be okay?

    He doesn’t discriminate on skin tone? I’m calling mom with the good news right now.

    Meanwhile, would anybody else rather see Pat Robertson live than those two Saint Lucia idiots who popping up on every Queerty page?

  • Fitz

    We will see him after the crash, I assure you.

  • Same Crap

    Everyone’s got a price.

  • rf

    Is that his face?

  • terrwill

    Ummm ‘scuse me if I was eva gonna pay for peen, I kinda sorta would expect the guy to be hot………

    Not some fugly dude with a mile high forehead, horrible teeth, chimpmuk cheeks, receding hairline,and looks like ’bout 30 pounds overweight…….. Ewww

  • dvlaries

    That’s fine Markus; we can lose you to the ladies. There’ll be other pioneers along right after you :|

  • romeo

    Frankly, he looks like a doofus. And who needs him? Have you seen even our lower priced hustlers? This guy would be lucky to make twenty bucks on a Saturday night in the gay scene. And most of them would do their job with some enthusiasm. LOL

    He seems like a decent enough guy, but he’s going to have a lot of competition from other straight guys once this gets out. Wonder what kind of limit Nevada set on licenses?

  • Brian


  • Todd

    With a face like that in the sex biz? He must be really nice and smart, able to have long deep conversations on many levels. I wonder how many languages he can speak??? Yikes!! It goes without saying the dude is majorly hung!! I bet he can fu-k for days w/ his huge, long fat wang!! lol Why else would they choose him? Come on $200.00 plus tips!!!! I hope he saves his money because he’s going to make a lot of cash! Its all about the tips baby, and some of the women are going to be more than generous! Good for him!

  • Solis

    My only concern at the moment is whether or not the Shady Lady Ranch’s dental plan will cover orthodontia, or at the very least provide HSA benefits.

  • hardmannyc

    I can’t see his body, and maybe that’s a bad photo but I could walk outside and around the block and see 10 guys who are way hotter than this guy. And they’re free!

  • terrwill

    He is the real life version of Peter Griffin!! : P

  • AlwaysGay

    Good. Gay-for-pay heterosexuals are losers. I don’t want any heterosexual. Only a gay man will kiss another man with absolute passion. For me, men kissing is the highest form of sexiness. Pathetic gay men who believe they are inferior to heterosexuals no matter how inadequate and desperate gay-for-pay heterosexuals are are the ones that perpetuate self hatred and idiocy in the gay community. These are the gay men that say when a person makes an anti-gay remark that that person must by gay because they bought every lie haterosexuals have told them that they believe something that is counter to every life experience they had. Practically all anti-gay bigots are heterosexuals and the rest are pretending to be heterosexual. Anti-gay bigotry is born out of heterosexuality. All the closeted gay people that made anti-gay comments did so pretending to be heterosexual because that is a keystone of heterosexuality and they know that since they were surrounded by heterosexuals from day one. Anyway we don’t need another heterosexual oppressor.

  • Solis

    Ladies, for $200, you can buy a couple of dresses with matching scarves at Dress Barn. I’m just suggesting …

  • Cam

    Wow, I would normally expect somebody making their living in a Nevada brothel to at least be better looking than somebody that anybody could meet and chat up in any bar in Nevada!

  • sal(the original)

    @ Solis AMEN!maybe they will give us a free bag to put on this dudes face

  • Henry Holland

    With a face like that, he’d have to pay me.

    Dear Straight Dudes:

    Just because you have a cock doesn’t mean we want you. Really, it’s true.


  • Fitz

    For $50, you could do better on Polk street on any night.

  • Gregg

    @Fitz: And for $25, you can get the Early Bird Special on Tuesday nights.

  • Alexander

    I’d have more fun sticking in a paper shredder than that dude’s mouth. And probably come away with less scars, too!

  • Shawn

    I’m with Todd on this one. I saw this on Tyra and was shocked that the house take 1/2 of the 200. fee, so he gets 100. The owner and the female Prostitute’s said “the tips more than make up for it”. Workers also added that they don’t keep track of the fee because that covers the taxes, and the customers are informed of this. So he’ll make 500. to 2,000. or more in tips!!! I would say most of his clients are very wealthy mature lady’s with reputations to uphold, rich widows on the down low! Not the bar going type! He passed the driving test with flying colors to land this gig! If he can live with being a payed whore, he just landed a dream job!!!!

  • marco

    fucker looks like Sloth from the Goonies

    hey you guuuuuuuuuys!

  • Same Crap

    I have a hard time believing women use prostitutes in a way that this type of prostitution can be profitable for the men involved. Most female prostitutes service men, and so do most male prostitutes.

    For straight men, a pussy is a powerful thing, and women don’t usually have to pay for cock. I have overweight and not-so-attractive female friends who get cat calls and whistles when they walk down the street. They don’t have to pay for it.

  • Shawn

    Wow, after a second look he looks like a seasonal farm worker instead of a stud for hire! The Gap wouldn’t hire him! If we could see him nude our jaws would drop, I bet hes hung like a horse!!! I’m going to try to find him on Google! LOL

  • Nick

    women need prostitutes too…we will have plenty of gay for pay soon in Nevada

  • Qjersey

    He is so uninformed. Many male escorts are hired to top. And no gay man is gonna hire him to top (with his looks anyway) unless he’s hung like a pony.

  • MDThom

    I can get better looking men free.

  • Ben

    This guy is not even slightly attractive.

    Do you think people will pay for his winning personality, instead?

  • jason

    Ewww, what a slut! And he has the gall to take the moral high ground on his “sphincter not being for sale”!! Slut is as slut does.

    You’re in the slut biz, honey – don’t pretend you’re above us.

  • jason

    Most of these straight dudes are actually bi. They’re just too stigmatized to admit it.

  • PopSnap

    Hahhaha hope he enjoys tasting 50-year old female crackwhore vajay-jay for the next twenty years or so! I hate to tell him, but that’s what his clientelle will be almost exclusively made up of: old, strung-out, middle-aged widows.

  • hephaestion

    Ha! It’s hilarious that this guy thinks any gay guys would line up to have sex with him. He’s not exactly Matthew Rush.

  • El Brucio

    Wow. He used an awful lot of words to basically say he’s heterosexual and is only interested in female clients.

    However, I have seen another photo of him, shirtless, on another web site, in which he looks quite muscular and better looking than the one posted here, so he probably will succeed in his chosen career, provided he’s not a total flake.

  • Herb

    Looks like we’ve got another person who is terrified of those evil labels. He’s a whore, but don’t call him a prostitute.

    Do people really think not calling you what you are means you are not really what the label defines?

  • alan brickman

    pretty gross looking…

  • dontblamemeivotedforhillary

    Yes, Boycott Saint Lucia! This guy is headed for the Biggest Loser in 4 years with a 400 pound inevitable body-weight. Just sayin’

  • Shannon

    Meh, good for him. I wouldn’t pork a ‘gina for a 50% cut of $200 so I can’t hate on this guy. Unfortunately, he’d better have an incredible personality or a gigantic cock, because his face pic is hot trash…

  • rattlebite

    Did he have to say sphincter?

  • scott ny'er

    Good. I didn’t want to have sex with him. So the feelings mutual.

  • Truth B. Told

    So, let him “specialize”. Big deal! What if a strictly Gay prostitute said that his cock is only for other dudes. Would anyone here bitch about it? I mean really! There will be plenty of cuter Gay rent boys in Vegas for those who are pathetic enough to have to pay for sex. Move on…

  • Wry Bred

    Pretty freakin’ presumptuous of him even to assume women would be interested. Blech.

  • schlukitz

    This article has something to do with something?

  • darkchariot

    Did he just call himself an artist? Jesus.

  • markuk

    If he’s the stud can you imagine his clientelles??!?!! Munter central. Aaahh bless.

  • insufferable_know_it_all

    Do you guys really think you should be calling anyone names? Slut, Whore…those words are not nice. People in the adult entertainment industry are people too. Just like soldiers are hired to kill people. Both jobs seem taboo according to religious doctrine, however why is it that the killer gets the medal and the other person gets called derogatory names. When that action is more natural than killing.

    There’s not many smart people in the world, but I’m glad I can call myself one of them.

    You guys, I’m not so sure about.

  • Jasun mark

    Oh please. Cougars can find better prey at a local bar and they don’t even have to buy them drinks. Gay men can find MUCH better than that for free at their local bath house. The guy is average looking at best and saying things like “My sphincter isn’t for sale” just makes him look like s stupid douchebag.

    I don’t wanna hand out judgement words like “slut” or “whore.” But Douchebag… yeah, that kinda fits.

    And what is it with average-and-below-looking straight guys that they seem to make so many nervous jokes about getting screwed up the hole?

  • No

    My God I wouldn’t want him if he offered to pay me. He should’ve just said nothing. To make it sound like he’s some hot piece of ass is laughable at best.

  • Michael, the Prince

    It is written: Know not the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not err, neither the fornicators, nor the idolaters, neither the adulterers, nor the effeminated, nor those who lay themselves with man, nor the thieves, nor the drunkards,nor the cursers, nor the frauders, will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians, chapter 6, (9-10)

  • Michael, the Prince

    Cursed be America if they support prostitute males.

  • Michael, the Prince

    I promise to go back to Mormon Church and all the gays will be in trouble. I want the support of the government and the White House to eliminate those gays who are prostitutes and give them program for sexual addiction to help them remove their sexual addiction. I also need the government their support and the white House to take away gays rights and the gay marriage. I want them to be punished to learn a lesson. Because they have betrayed me.
