Gigolos
There are now more men advertising their services as independent male escorts for women than ever before.

Filmmaker Charlie Russell goes in search of the gigolos who are aiming to make money by satisfying a variety of sexual and emotional needs for their female clients. But are modern women really ready to pay for sex, or is this all just a male fantasy? And what happens when these would-be gigolos are offered big money for intimate experiences - with gay men?

This frank and warm-hearted film follows Ian, a 51-year-old who offers the ‘boyfriend experience’ and is trying to get more work as a male escort from one of Europe’s largest and most glamorous agencies; Joe, a personal trainer who is only just setting out on his journey to become a gigolo; and Ivo, a Latvian would-be love-god who claims to be making thousands of pounds offering a wide-ranging service, from sexual encounters with attractive young women, to couples looking for new experiences, to men who want him to beat them up.
