“There are easily 50 straight go-go boys that you see working regularly,” Tetreault estimates during a new interview with Vice.
He knows because he’s one of them.
“So much of dancing is acting,” Tetreault says. “You really have to play it up. … One of the skills of dancing is that you have to learn how to reject someone but remain endearing at the same time, which is not easy to do.”
Tetreault’s says one of his greatest assets is his penis.
“I have a pretty good bulge and that’s kinda my M.O. when it comes to dancing,” he explains. “I always want to go out with a well-fluffed dick, I want to look the best I can, have the best bulge, and I want to earn money.”
“I use cock rings,” he continues. “A lot of guys will take Viagra. … I’ve seen one guy inject his dick with caverject, which is the stuff they use in porn to stay hard for three hours.”
As for being propositioned for sex by club patrons, Tetreault says it happens pretty regularly.
“I routinely get offers to accompany people back home,” he says. “They’re called ‘privates,’ to do anything from cuddle with someone, masturbate for them, or let them blow me. The price range varies. I’ve been offered anywhere from $200 to $5,000, and I can’t bring myself to do it.”
“I’ve been condescended to many times,” Tetreault explains. “I’m essentially a zoo animal and a piece of meat at work.”
He says he deals with everything from creeps lurking in the shadows taking photos and videos of him to people wanting to fondle his junk for $1.
“It’s usually the guy with the lone dollar bill that wants the most from you,” Tetreault says. “The people with money don’t make a big deal about making you dance for them, or treating you like a bear with a tiny hat on a ball.”
He continues: “I’ve had guys reach in my underwear and grab around in there, and they just leave a dollar in there and you just smile and you thank them. And I feel like such a piece of shit. Like, I basically just thanked you to grope me for a dollar. Those are the moments where I ask, ‘Who the fuck am I?'”
Despite all this, Tetreault says he’s “not ashamed” of his career.
“I see it as part of my journey,” he says. “It’s my job. It isn’t my identity. It got me my Playgirl magazine spread. I did a music video with Willam Belli and Courtney Act who are two famous drag queens. It has created an interesting narrative for myself and I feel like it’s because I’m open about it.”
