JAKARTA - Jakarta, a city which is famous for its night life, discos, pubs has also a hidden unmasked Zorro's which we call gigolos who never show up them selves freely in normal daily life.

Lapangan Banteng, a place in the heart of the city near Senen is a chosen place for these hidden folks to appear in the late hours of night. Slow cars hunting them is a common sight. They stand in the late hours of nights near the trees , the sports ground and the near by halte bus (bus stop) staring at each and every vehicle that passes by with some sweet smiles, long gel-splashed hair and some with their sleeveless t-shirts showing off their biceps like if they are about to be chosen for a Hollywood movie for its no doubt that the "First impression is the last impression". These male prostitutes makes himself available to all women of all ages, generally concentrating on bored, frustrated and "exploring" rich housewives looking for extra loving as well as variety to satisfy their sex needs. But to be in this profession is not as easy as the feminine style. "While a female prostitute can just make money by simply opening her legs, this male character has to make his clients feel emotionally comfortable before they're willing to spend money on him."
Donít be infact mistaken with the words "gigolo" & "male prostitute" there could be lot of difference between these two. Where as a male prostitute waits with his sweet smile for hours for a customer to pick him up, there are this professional intelligent Gigolo's that normally concentrates his efforts on making himself available to rich daughters, widows and wives of busy businessmen who really don't care what their wives do. So the first thing these intelligent class does is stop looking for ladies at or about their own age. Dressing more neatly, more stylishly they hang around the places these women frequent visit for e.g. churches, life-style classes, high class clubs and hotel lounges and exclusive fitness centers.
And there even some who publise and advertise themselves in private paid websites for exclusive and trusted customers and there are some who carefully expose their true colors in internet chatrooms.
Many Indonesian chat rooms especially the Bali channel is a favorite for these creatures looking for their rich preys. In fact itís a heard fact that Kuta (tourist spot in South Bali) is a paradise for lonely woman tourists empowered by rising incomes and left alone by wandering husbands, who see no reason to taste this high class satisfaction service.

The word "gigolo" has been used to include any man who enters a relationship with a woman under false pretenses in order to get his hands on her money. But for the gigolos themselves who are not used to hear this truth on their own face. So if you hire a gigolo service be careful not to call them that way because it makes them feel insulted even though they try their best to fill in their wallets with some few good strokes and sweet conversation.
In a country where thousands of young youth still struggling for their destiny, this profession suits them as long it fills their own and their family stomachs. But for some lazy characters who take the advantage of their handsome faces and toned muscles even though possessing average sized tools think to be a gigolo is cool, as they get paid to have sex with women always.
So for guys who read this article and feel that this is a profession that can be suitable for them not to forget some more things that. Not all women are beautiful and some may be even 40 or 60 smoking cigarettes whole day with their tits all messed up. A professional gigolo will never allow his emotions to be a barrier in his profession, like never fall in love he always keeps his eye on the heavy wallet of her dear customer. They donít talk too much about themselves like his past life, school, jobs but instead opens his ears to listen to her wishes, desires, preferences, her problems and tears and cries with them as well. I think a 'good' gigolo is one who keeps his own career as a secret in daily life and is more concerned with the pleasure of his client than his dick and that is where he succeeds the most.
So if you guys who are trying to struggle with your job applications out there and are ready to take on this challenge I wish youíll best of luck for your new freelance career.
And for some female friends and tourists in Indonesia who are married, divorced, single, unhappy with their husbands and who think their husbands do the same hunting for chicks while on business tours, think twice before entering this strange relation ship.
These characters play with your emotions more than just a spill of juice compared to the female prostitutes, listening to their poverty speeches and a fear in heart that these romantic Romeo's will leave you lonely Juliets, you may spend your own saved money, ruin your family, get in debt for these characters who would say "I love you" just for you low self esteemed women to fall in for them so he can get a hand on your heavy wallet and ATM cards. And think of your own feelings twice if your own husband has this kind of relationship with any female body seller. And not to forget the day when your own kids would know about it.
Itís a fact that there is a teenager inside every mature woman and a good gigolo knows how to awaken that youthful spirit in her, so watch with your own boyfriend or husband who you may be pampering with expensive gifts or paying his bills or food in any means, because who knows who is what?.
