One woman tells us. But there are many different types of escorts, so it follows that there are many different types of escort clients. Some of these clients, in fact, are women. Angela name has been changed is one of them. A year-old banking officer and mother of two from Texas, Angela is a client of Cowboys4Angels, an escort agency that caters primarily to female clients.
She started using the service back in , shortly after her husband of 20 years passed away in a motorcycle accident. After losing pounds after gastric bypass surgery, she started seeing Nick Hawk , a male escort employed by Cowboys4Angels who also appears on the Showtime series Gigolos.
So what motivates a woman like Angela to pay for companionship with a male escort? How did you hear about Cowboys4Angels? I was married for 20 years, and my husband passed away suddenly in a motorcycle accident in So at that point I just decided to start reworking my life as I knew it.
At the time, I weighed pounds; I had gastric bypass surgery and lost pounds. That was back in So my girlfriend and I were talking, and I was thinking about getting out there and going on a date.
Why did you decide to see a male escort? For me, it was because I had kids. I wanted to hang out with someone attractive and not have to deal with any of this bullshit. I met several people, but it never panned out. None of the guys were honest. And I never had fun. Had you ever considered hiring a male escort before? What did you know about male escorts before? I wanted to build my confidence. How did you decide who you wanted to go out with?
For me, a lot of the guys were really, really young. And I was 45 at the time. Then I wanted someone very alpha, very dominant, but not an asshole. That narrowed it down, because a lot of the guys are very metro. That was my fantasy, the whole bad-boy thing.
Was your husband like that? He rode a Harley, honey. And when we first met, I will never forget: You said you were nervous at first.
Was there anything else that surprised you about him? Did he look different than his pictures? No, he was better. He was way better. His aura, his energy—he almost struts when he walks.
It was very empowering. How did the rest of your first date go? The very first time, I went to Las Vegas and he came up to my suite and we sat down. Then he just asked me. We planned out the entire weekend and and walked around Vegas and had some lunch. Then we went to the Garth Brooks show, which was epic. Then afterward we [ate] tapas. It was very, very fun. There was no hem-hawing around. Did your family know you were planning this date and meeting this guy in Vegas?
They knew I had a friend in Vegas. Do they still not know about Nick? They lost their dad as well. But my girlfriends know, for sure. What do they say about it? At first they loved it, because it changed my whole attitude and outlook. They were very supportive. Everyone I told was very supportive.
How many times did you see him after that? All told, over two years, probably 12, 15 times? We went to L. Was money ever a consideration?
Did you ever talk to each other or spend time together without money changing hands? Was it ever hard for you to wrap your mind around it? At the very beginning, definitely. What did he say? He was very kind and supportive. He would always remind me of how lucky I was to have a wonderful family and a wonderful life, and for us to spend time together.
Do you feel that at any point your feelings went beyond that for him? Or that it was hard for you to change how you thought about it? Think about how much fun we have. Physical as far as our relationship? The things that happen outside of scheduling time with someone is personal and has nothing to do with the agency. Obviously, if two people spend time together, there are probably occasions that work themselves… out [laughs]. Sometimes you have to sit down and have a big fat cup of reality.
Yes and no, I guess. I saw him, and do see him, as a very, very good friend. Do you see him as a friend, an employee, or a lover? What order would you put them in? A special friend who will always have a special place in my heart. What kind of thoughts crossed your mind? That it was more about focusing on why you wanted to hang out with this individual in the first place.
What are you doing? Did he ever mention any other details of his life beyond his job? Yeah, I would ask him sometimes. Did he solicit your advice on girls he dated as well? You should go on his Twitter and see some of these girls that he hangs out with.
About to fly this bitch. Not a bad gig. You subjected yourself to this. I quit watching the show. But how do you think he saw you? We talked about that too. Because when you spend 48 hours with another person nonstop, you talk about everything.
So I believe him. Why do you have so much faith in what he says? I do not want this. When was the last time you saw Nick? In September, in New York. Then we went to Vegas a few weeks later and I spent a few days with him. Do you think your experience as a woman client was any different than a male client?
