Looking for a “Yes” Man? Ladies you’re in luck.
Rent-A-Gent Service Allows Women To Hire Men To Act As Dates Or Domestic Servants
NY Daily News did a profile on a new service, which they describe as a new escort service that offers up hireable hunks to serve as handymen, arm candy and sexy task rabbits, or even just to make your ex jealous:
Rent a Gent founder Sara Shikhman came up with the idea because she needed a hottie on her arm at an event her ex-boyfriend would be attending.
Shikhman expanded the idea to include men available for every purpose (except sex; these are escorts, not prostitutes!).
The gents must sign a contract that forbids sex, and customers are well informed before the transaction.
Since she launched the site last winter, she has sent “gents” to 200 women in the New York area. Shikhman has since added Las Vegas, Chicago and Texas to the service.
Sure, you could hire one of Shikhman’s handy men to be a handyman, but the gimmick is clear: This is more about provocation than plumbing.
“We have two big markets: the bachelorette market and the dates and events market,” says Shikhman.
Ladies can shop for men like they would peruse a Seamless menu. There’s a selection of 40 men, such as “Eric” the actor, who moonlights as the perfect wedding date, or “Jude” the sommelier, who’s modeled for Valentino and has a degree in international studies.
The cost is about $200 an hour.
Damn, what about the broads on a budget though? Would you ever come out your pocket $200 an hour just so you wouldn’t have to show up somewhere solo???
