Seattle escorts and spokane escort websites are now offering services to gay men and lesbians, and a new study says the sites are working as advertised.
A new study from the Kinsey Institute and the University of Washington found that gay escorts in Seattle and Spokane are attracting more clients than any other city.
But they are still underpaid, the study found, and have been for some time.
The study surveyed nearly 4,000 gay men, and found that while gay escort sites had seen a significant uptick in popularity, the majority of them still were underpaid.
Most gay escorting sites offer low rates of pay, and the majority don’t have policies about whether gay escorters are eligible for money from men or women.
“The vast majority of escorts are not qualified to provide safe and discreet services,” said Rachel L. Todhunter, a professor at the University at Buffalo and a co-author of the study.
“They have not been trained to be paid properly.”
Some escorts said they felt unsafe in their homes, or felt unsafe on the streets of their neighborhoods, and some said they could not trust their customers.
In the end, the researchers said, a lot of these escorts still weren’t being paid the proper amount.
Told about the study, Todhuncy said she thought of it as “just a little piece of the puzzle.”
She said it was also a sign that gay and lesbian men and women were looking for safe and confidential services, and that they had no choice but to use these escorting websites.
The majority of the gay escORTS sites that were surveyed had no policy about accepting cash, and they weren’t looking for clients from outside the community, according to the study’s findings.
And many gay escORT sites were looking only for people with an existing relationship, said Todshian.
In Spokane, gay escARTNS were not able to say whether escorts who were married to someone were qualified to perform an anal sex act.
One escort told the researchers he was willing to do it, but he said he would need to talk to his girlfriend first.
“I’ve been doing this for years,” he said.
“My girlfriend has been through it, and she’s not in it.
I’m looking for a man that I can do this for her.”
The Seattle escORTS had the lowest rates of money being made.
“Seattle is a pretty hot market,” said Stephanie M. Hager, a coauthor of one of the studies and a partner at the firm Kohnstein & Dearden LLP.
“There are some gay and straight men who have gone to Seattle for sexual purposes, and those people are the ones that we’re seeing.
They’re the ones who are not seeing much money coming in.”
A survey by the Seattle-based National Center for Lesbian Rights found that most gay men who had been dating someone in the past year reported having unprotected sex with someone in their home.
That same survey found that among those men, nearly half reported that they have had unprotected sex at least once in the last year.
“We have some gay men in our program who are looking for sex,” said Heather B. Henson, a Seattle-area escort.
“And if they’re going to do this with their girlfriend, it’s not just about money.
It’s about being comfortable with their partner.
It makes it more personal.”
A few of the escORTS that had surveyed said they had found gay men with “a low-level of desire,” and they didn’t know how to find someone with that level of desire, said Henson.
“You can find someone in your life who is attracted to a certain type of person,” she said.
The survey showed that gay men tend to be more vulnerable to rejection, and their sexual preferences often make them more vulnerable in situations where they don’t know their partner’s sexual orientation.
A few gay men told the Kinsellis that they felt they were being judged because they were gay, and many of them had experienced abuse at the hands of family members, Henson said.
One gay escort told The Associated Press that he has been verbally and physically abused by his parents.
One said he was forced to give up a job because he was “too gay” to be a “straight man.”
The study also found that some gay escAPORTS reported being sexually assaulted by others, and had experienced harassment from people who weren’t gay.
The sites said they were not collecting personal information about the escAPorts.
The Seattle- and Spokane-area escORTS reported receiving more requests for sexual services from gay men than any city, according for example to the survey.
“When people ask us, we say we are very sensitive to people who are vulnerable,” said Todorian.
“So, we want to ensure that all of our escorts feel safe.”
The researchers said that most of
