Gay escorts see a rise in business during the Republican National Convention

The Republican National Convention arriving in your hometown might not be everyone's idea of a positive turn of events, but it's been surprisingly good news for gay escorts. Male sex workers in Cleveland have seen a spike in business, according to the New York Post, as Republican National Convention attendees, who are often married, seek out their services. One escort said “business has been way better. I’ve seen 10 clients so far”. “Most of them were first-timers. You could tell they were nervous, but once they became more comfortable, they seemed to be having a good time.” Another spoke of making $1,600 since the convention came to town - a huge increase in business. “I normally only make $200 to $300, but I’ve been seeing lots of guys in hotels downtown,” he said. Sadly, women aren't sharing in the unexpected upturn in business. When the New York Post contacted  female sex workers, one said “Business is slower than usual, "I haven’t been getting any calls.” More stories: Britney Spears is back with brand new single ‘Make Me’ ‘Coming out to my wife was hard, but coming out to my family was another level entirely’
