Book Description

A Consumer’s Guide to Male Hustlers gives you exciting insight into all you ever wanted to know about hustlers but were too embarrassed to ask. You’ll find answers to questions such as where and how to find hustlers, how much to pay them, and how to make it an experience that is satisfying to both parties. Author Joseph Itiel shares with readers his personal experiences and observations, describing his dealings with hustlers, over a period of about 35 years, in many different countries.

Throughout A Consumer’s Guide to Male Hustlers, Itiel narrates personal anecdotes, lending an intimate dimension to his general observations. He describes the hustler scene in the United States and abroad, dispelling many erroneous notions about hustlers by addressing such topics as:

  • under what circumstances sex-for-money arrangements are exploitative (a comparison of male hustlers and female prostitutes)
  • emotional involvement and control between clients and hustlers
  • the notion that hustlers are only for the wealthy
  • whether or not hustlers are likely carriers of sexually transmitted diseases
  • whether or not it is dangerous to pick up hustlers
  • why hustlers hustle
  • the differences between street hustlers, models (or escorts), and masseurs
  • legal issues associated with hustling
  • regular sessions with hustlers as an emotional and libidinal sedative

    It is the contention of the author that hustlers are an under-used resource in the gay community, especially valuable to those with a vigorous sex appetite but no steady partner. This opportunity is often shunned because potential clients feel guilty about hiring hustlers. The author hopes that by reading this book, you will come to understand that the hustler experience, meeting with hustlers regularly, can be mutually exciting and satisfying for both parties.
