He trained as a chef, but these days 28-year-old Zack from Cape Town spends less time in the kitchen and more time jetsetting around the country...as a male escort.
He recently joined CapeTalk's Sara-Jayne King to explain how he got into this particular line of work and why, according to him, it's so much better than a regular nine-to-five.
First of all I should just say that I don't actually get paid for sex, I get paid for my time.— Zack, male escort
The service that we provide is such a huge variety. You can be someone's boyfriend, you can be someone's friend, you can be someone's gardener! It's just a role that you play during a certain period of time.— Zack, male escort
