Beyond lust, create companionship with your sex workers! Many more men are willing to buy sex than to admit the fact. Joseph Itiel is not only willing to admit it--he has the courage and style to create “virtual” relationships with hustlers. These ongoing professional relationships are a step beyond cold, anonymous sex for sale. Though the economic basis remains the same--an open exchange of cash for sex--the association is also honest, affectionate, and sexually fulfilling. He explains how you can do the same in Sex Workers as Virtual Boyfriends, a companion volume to his best-selling A Consumer's Guide to Male Hustlers (Haworth 1998). From his own experience, stretching over four decades and many nations, the author suggests ways to transform the relationship between a client and his escort from a crass commercial transaction to a true camaraderie. Sex Workers as Virtual Boyfriends also offers an intimate glimpse into the gay lifestyle in San Francisco and around the world before the AIDS epidemic and in these days of safer sex. Sex Workers as Virtual Boyfriends presents practical tips and real-life vignettes, including: an experiment to help you decide if you could be a sex worker (See if you measure up!) an appendix containing a comprehensive list of sex workers advertising on the World Wide Web seven guidelines for friendly relations with your escort a guide to the etiquette of negotiable affection Sex Workers as Virtual Boyfriends is shocking, sexy, literate, and fun. It also can help you find the affection you want--at a price you can afford.

Thanks to the Internet, it has never been so easy to become the person of your wildest dreams. Immersive 3D worlds such as Second Life and THERE.com provide an escape route from the ordinary, into a virtual world where you have the power to mould your life in any way you please. Forget about walking, wheelchair users can fly. Pensioners wipe away the pains of age, discovering youthful exuberance and making young friends once more. No wonder it has become harder than ever to honestly answer the question: who am I? In Being Virtual, Davey Winder looks at how an increasing number of us are living part-real, part-virtual lives, and how it affects who we are. He looks at the opportunities and dangers that a virtual identity offers us, how we juggle our real and online lives, and what happens when one spills over into the other... He uses his own personal experiences to bring the issues to life, and backs them up with the real-life stories of others and testimony from the experts. Along the way, he looks at some fascinating questions such as: Are you a virtual liar? What happens when our virtual and real worlds collide? Why will you talk to anyone online, but nobody on the train to work? Why do so many middle-aged men transform into teenage girls online? Is it possible to have any secrets in such a connected world? Being Virtual gives a glimpse into the future of human identity, and is a must-read for anyone who uses the Internet to enhance - or escape from - their 'ordinary' life. About the author Davey Winder has been a freelance journalist for 16 years, and is Contributing Editor of the best-selling IT magazine, PC Pro. He has picked up many awards including Technology Journalist of the Year and IT Security Journalist of the Year.

Come on a journey of erotic discovery where young guys seek out old gentlemen! It is well known that to most gay men, a shapely, youthful body is the ultimate turn-on. But a few young guys, sometimes even married ones, are erotically attracted to old men, because of their age. Joseph Itiel (author of Escort Tales; A Consumer’s Guide to Male Hustlers; and Sex Workers as Virtual Boyfriends), now in his early seventies, has discovered such young fellows. In Dirty Young Men and Other Gay Stories, he relates his experiences with them in intimate detail. Dirty Young Men and Other Gay Stories is packed full of true younger-loves-older stories from all walks of life and from different countries. From the author: “It took me until my middle fifties to become a sex object. Before reaching this age, nobody had ever been infatuated with my looks or physique. I hadn’t been selected out of a crowd just because someone thought I would be a good lay. Wouldn’t it be nice, I kept hoping, if for once I would fulfill somebody’s sexual fantasies, and be picked for just this reason? Well, at the age of fifty-five, my daydreams started to become a reality. Finally, I became a sex object, a ’man toy,’ to cute guys much younger than myself.” Dirty Young Men and Other Gay Stories is packed full of erotic true stories from the author’s real life experience. Here is a sample of what you’ll find: “Master of the Dildo”—the fulfillment of a young man’s desire for penetration by a man old enough to be his father, notwithstanding his young (female) sweetheart “Bligh’s Bounty”—the adventures of an older man in San Francisco’s first gay go-go bar “The Hypnotic Suggestion”—an older “straight” man seeks to discover his true identity by exploring, through hypnosis, a fleeting gay moment in his past “An Affair in the Galilee Mountains”—a bittersweet love affair between a “professor” and a younger, uneducated local man “The Dominatrix”—the author befriends (and beds) a much younger man who, it turns out, makes his living as a cross-dressing dominatrix, administering beatings to “straight” men for money “Teaching a Man to Fish”—the author teaches two attractive young men the art of escorting From Galilee to Lisbon to San Francisco, Joseph Itiel’s Dirty Young Men and Other Gay Stories will take you on an erotic journey that you won’t soon forget!

Sex Workers Unite

A provocative history that reveals how sex workers have been at the vanguard of social justice movements for the past fifty years while building a movement of their own that challenges our ideas about labor, sexuality, feminism, and freedom Fifty countries treat sex work as a legitimate job, and it has been legalized (with restrictions) in eleven others. The United States is one of the few industrialized nations that continues to criminalize prostitution and, as Melinda Chateauvert reveals, these laws have put sex workers at risk. Documenting five decades of sex-worker activism, Sex Workers Unite puts prostitutes, hustlers, call girls, strippers, and porn stars in the center of civil rights struggles. Although their presence has largely been ignored, sex workers have here been recast as key activists in struggles for gay liberation, women’s rights, reproductive justice, union organizing, and prison abolition. By foregrounding labor, Chateauvert reframes sex work as work and argues that sex-worker rights are ultimately human rights.

Sex Love and Money in Cambodia

Dealing with the complex and discomforting ‘grey ‘area where sex, love and money collide, this book highlights the general materiality of everyday sex that takes place in all relationships. In doing so, it draws attention to and destigmatizes the transactional elements within many ‘normative’ partnerships – be they transnational, inter-ethnic or otherwise. Focusing on Cambodia, and on a subculture of young women employed in the tourist bar scene referred to as ‘professional girlfriends’, the book shows that the resulting transnational relationships between Cambodian women and their foreign partners are complex and multi-layered. It argues that the sex-for-cash prostitution framework is no longer an appropriate model of analysis. Instead, a new vocabulary of ‘professional girlfriends’ and ‘transactional sex’ is used, with which the nuanced complexities of these transnational partnerships are analysed. Interdisciplinary in nature, the book inspires new understandings of gender, power, sex, love, desire, political economy and materiality within everyday relationships around the globe. It is a useful contribution for students and scholars of Anthropology, Sociology, Southeast Asian Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and Cultural Studies.

Even in this tiny fragment of philosophy I managed to miss two essential points. "Know thyself," and "The unexamined life is not worth living," were Socrates' maxims. I never bothered to ask myself "Who am I?" A brilliant University of California-Berkeley philosophy student, Eloy Wise suffers from multiple personality disorder. Each of his three personalities is capable of taking him into different realms of experience and self-exploration, and it is not long before his life changes dramatically. Eloy is a promising and attractive young man who likes the company of older men from various cultures. Romantic and idealistic Harmony is a bright university student determined to become the lover of his controversial and charismatic philosophy professor. And José Luis, the third personality sharing this one body, is a reckless young Chicano ready for sexual adventures, seeking his paternal heritage in Mexico. From a Northern California college campus to the gay bars of Mexico and San Francisco, Three Faces in the Mirror reveals one young man's journey to find his true self.
