Like most men looking to make a bit of extra cash, Jeff Leach has heard all about the modern-day male escort; getting paid vast amounts of money to be wined, dined and sleep with wealthy women sounds like the perfect job. But what is the reality behind this seemingly dream job.
Male Hookers Uncovered is a fearless investigation into the realities of the male escort business that pushes the authored documentary genre to a new level as Jeff joins the industry – for real.
On his journey he meets self-styled ‘happy male hookers’, and the punters keeping them in business. He also discovers that all might not be as it seems with bogus agencies set up to fleece joining fees from cash-strapped young men, the psychological repercussions of working in the industry, women ‘purchasing’ men as an act of empowerment, and the harsh realities of life being treated as nothing more than a sex object.
Jeff is on a mission to find out the reality behind the headlines but is he willing to go ‘all the way’ to find out the truth?
