Male Escort Reveals He Earns Up To £1,200 Per Night

They call it 'the world's oldest profession', but it seems like we're only just beginning to develop a real understanding of the lives of sex workers, and the pressures they face.

More often than not, however, we tend to hear about the experiences of female sex workers, almost making it easy to forget that men also work in the industry.

Take Seani Love, for example. According to the Daily Mail, he was working as a software engineer when he attended his first sex workshop in an effort to 'spice things up' in the bedroom.

Little did he know his new hobby would ultimately turn into an entirely different career - but this set him off on a path that would see him become a male escort.

He was paid £130 ($173) for his first private session but now 48-year-old Seani, who was born in Australia but currently lives in London, charges as much as £1,200 ($1,604) to spend a night with a female client.

He offers anything from a 'kinky boyfriend' experience to roleplay. All in a day's work, of course.

Seani is happy to admit that he doesn't fit he stereotype of the 'buff, hairless, Chippendale-type male' but says he's satisfied more than 1,000 clients by ensuring 'they have the best possible sexual experience when they're with me'. At least he backs his ability.

And for those who'd like to know more, Mick told his story to MailOnline.

Describing one experience with a client, he said: "As I held the woman in my arms on the bed I asked her how she wanted to be touched.

"Minutes earlier she'd told me she'd never had an orgasm before so over the following 45 minutes I helped her climax for the first time ever.

"It was an amazing moment for the both of us - but it was also my job to make sure she left happy, as I was a male escort."

However, he acknowledges that his life used to be very different.

"Eight years ago I was working in London as a software engineer and enjoyed it a lot," he said.

"As someone who's always been sexually adventurous in the bedroom and keen to try new things, when I hit my 30s I began to go to workshops in my spare time, to learn about things such as Tantra and bondage - anything that would add a bit more spice in the bedroom.

"But then eight years ago I ended up organising a sex workshop in London for my favourite sex book author.

"I wrote to him and asked if I could pay him to teach. After that I went to Prague to hold a workshop myself and a woman at the workshop offered to pay me £130 for a private session. I was surprised and delighted."

The experience certainly turned out to be a confidence booster for his new start, Seani continued, adding: "She admitted to me that she'd always felt quite shy when it came to sex and wanted me to give her an erotic massage - something she'd never dared ask a partner for.

"I felt very confident that I could give her exactly what she wanted. We did it in back room of the studio.

"When it was over, I felt so elated that I had managed to satisfy her and make her climax, I knew I could make a living out of it."

Of course, he knew that not everyone would understand.

"I did wonder how I would tell people what I was doing and I decided to keep it from my father," continued Seani.

"At first I kept working as a software engineer, while organising my own sex workshops in London and in my native Australia and offering my services as an escort.

"These could be a 'hands off experience' which is just chatting, or a 'kinky boyfriend' experience where I combine kink with intimacy such as spanking or role play or just sensual touch, sex and erotic play.

"I advertised on Facebook and other websites charging from £90 an hour to £1,200 for a full day or overnight."

It's official, we can literally do anything on Facebook.

Describing how he goes about his work, he said: "I strictly never take my pants off in the first session so that my clients feel safe and are reassured it is all about their needs not mine. I just meet and greet them and give a massage.

"I never confessed to any of my engineer colleagues about my secret side job, but as my reputation grew over the next four years, I was able to give up my office job in June 2015 and work full time in the sex industry.

"By then I had a really strong client base of women in their 30s and 40s. Many had experienced a string of bad relationships and want to explore sex for themselves, while others were pretty high powered women who want to surrender to their sexuality and be more submissive.

"I even had one famous client who appeared on TV regularly."

He's got us guessing now, hasn't he?

Seani continued: "Lots of my clients have also never climaxed before they'd been with me, which I felt was just so sad, as it's such a natural and wonderful thing.

"But one of them ended up having really noisy orgasms once she discovered them, which was very funny.

"I meet clients at home and I remember once she practically screamed my house down while we were having sex.

"When she left, my neighbours, who have no idea what I do, gave me some really funny looks.

"In 2015 I met my current partner at a Tantric sex workshop. From the start I was very open about my work with her and thankfully she's always been very positive and encouraging.

"I imagine it's because she's also interested in exploring sex and can see that I'm helping empower women and their sexuality. She knows I practice safe sex and always use a condom.

"At the moment we live in different cities as she is from the Netherlands and we have a long distance love.

"So we can't always be together and at times she can feel insecure that I am having sex with other women but she understands about my job and is supportive.

"Not everyone is so understanding, though. I am always open in conversation and while some men tell me it's their dream job, others have accused me of lying, as I don't fit the stereotype of the buff, hairless, Chippendale type male.

"And I often get asked why a woman would pay for sex with me when they can just pick someone up at a bar.

"I have slept with around 1,000 women since I began and the truth is that if a woman is paying then the whole time it is about them and their needs and what she wants to explore.

"Some women have no idea what they want, or how to ask for it and some have only had sex that lasted 10 minutes.

"That's why I make it my job to make sure they have the best possible sexual experience when they're with me."

You do your thing, money bags. Seems like you're bossing it.
