For one, the male prostitute is tarred with the same brush as his female counterpart.
Gay society has adopted many of the values and prejudices of the straights even when they do not apply to homosexual s.
Young and proud males feel that they deserve to have free sex.
- Male sex workers' support program stronger than ever (2012): When Matthew Taylor founded HUSTLE: Men on the Move in Vancouver in 2007, it was one of the few outreach organizations in Canada to work specifically with men in the sex industry, providing peer support, safer-sex materials, nutrition, harm reduction and needle exchanges to street-level sex workers and street-involved youth. There are still only a handful of male-specific support services that exist across the country.
So in the winter of 2010, when government funding issues threatened to close HUSTLEs parent agency, PEERS Vancouver, Taylor began looking to other options.
Four months in, he says he has more than 350 clients, mostly sex workers aged 16 to 30.
