Male escort: "It's not just about sex"

CapeTalk's Sara-Jayne King speaks to Zack, a male escort (27) living in Cape Town, about his work and why he chose to be an escort.

Before he became an escort, Zack graduated as a pastry chef and worked as one for a couple of years. He then saw an ad in a newspaper from an agency which provided male escorts services. He applied, was shown the ropes and he fell in love with it.

He says being a male escort is not just about sex, some clients just need companionship, go on dinner dates and other things.

Most of Zacks clients are male.

A lot of my clients are straight married men who want to sit and talk and be who they want be for that period of time.

It can also be gay or bisexual man who just need to have that outlet where he can act or say whatever he wants to say and receive no judgement.

Zack, Male Escort

I have never had a bad experience in this industry. I think my clients are fairly normal, no bad experience or people trying to keep you against your will.
