It will be the 8th edition of The Hookies this year and the organizers of Rentboy.com want to fight the stigma around male escorts in the media with these awards. With these Hookie awards Rentboy want to say that having male escorts are important in life.

What do you think about this award ceremony? Is it the right way to promote the escort world and show the world what it is all about and loose the way how people in general think about the escort world? Rentboy.com has long been an advocate for a person’s right to do what he or she likes with their body. They constantly reinforce the message that escorts should be proud of the services they provide and not marginalized or made to feel inferior to someone. My personal opinion is that we should be glad that these escorts are here and help people with these sexual needs. (Because there is definitely a need for it) Some people can’t have or get sex like they want it. Then it’s better that they pay for professionals instead of raping others to get their sexual needs and drifts fulfilled. I don’t feel the need to pay for it, but never say never…..I thought I was straight too when I was born and look how that turned out… LOL.
