Sex Advice From Hollister Models

Wise words from those guys who stand around being really, really good-looking.

By Carly Pifer

Ah, summer in New York. The season of movies in the park, weekends in the Hamptons, and models standing nearly naked on street corners. For those of you not lucky enough in a town with a Hollister, each summer, the clothing store hires hunky young gentleman and pays them... to stand around and do nothing. Our intrepid reporter dodged the floor manager to ask them about sex, dating, and how it feels to be really, really good-looking.


Derek, 28 & Jared, 26

What kind of job description came with this position?
D: "Stand around in bathing suits and say hi to people."  

Do you ever feel like a piece of meat?
D: Always. Women have been taking advantage of that for more than 2,000 years — now it’s our turn. Women can vote and own property; it’s my turn to be a piece of meat. I want to be objectified and given stuff for free.
J: I don’t feel like a piece of meat.

What’s the creepiest thing that’s ever happened to you on a shift?
J: Being touched.

Where?
D: Are you going to break out a doll and be like, “Show me where they touch you?” They just come by and girls grab you, dudes grab you.
J: We never get anything too offensive — aside from the touching.
D: Except there was that guy that walked by and said he could suck both of us off in two minutes.

Do you get away with ridiculous things because you’re beautiful?
J: We definitely get away with more than the average person, yes.
D: I disagree. I mean beauty only gets you so far. You have to have charm and wit beyond that — otherwise you tend to talk yourself into a corner.
J: But you do get things right off the bat because of your beauty.
D: Yeah. I’ve gotten free stuff, free haircuts, free gym memberships, free meals, girls...

If "The Hollister" was a sex position what would it be?
D: Taking it up the butt.
J: [Laughs]

Why are male models better in bed?
D: We have a lot of experience.

How much sex do you have?
D: Do you want a number?
J: Of partners? Or times per week?

Partners.
D: Over one hundred.
J: That’s a personal question. I prefer quality over quantity.
D: I do too, but sometimes I just get bored. 

It’s that easy?
D: It’s easy to get it, but the aftermath is terrible. Girls throw themselves at you, and you just take advantage of it because it’s there.

Would you ever date a model?
D: Yes.
J: My girlfriend’s a model. We understand the pros and cons of what we go through, but there’s definitely a large amount of trust that has to go into the relationship. There’s a lot of scandal in the industry, scandalous shoots, creepy people, and pressures that a normal nine-to-five job doesn’t have.

I’m very in love with my girlfriend, but I just found out she cheated on me. Can I take her back, or is it over for good?
D: Nope. Because it’s pathological thing. If she cheats once, she’s going to do it again, especially if you take her back. She’s going to feel that you’ve already said it’s okay. She might not do it while sober, but once she gets inebriated or high, she will repeat the offense.

Have you ever cheated?
D: No.
J: I cheated on one girlfriend.

I’m trying to make some guy friends, but whenever I meet a new guy, it seems like all they want from me is sex. The minute I make it clear I’m not interested, they’re gone. Can’t men and women be friends?
J: No, you can’t be friends with a guy.
D: It depends on the arena that you’re in. If you’re in the library and you have common interests — studying the same thing or whatever — that’s awesome. If you’re in a bar, don’t even talk to the scumbag because he only wants one thing.

I’ve never been in a serious relationship because I have issues opening up to people. How can I change?
J: Wow.
D: Trust can be learned, but it takes a lot of practice to give. I would say, start small and work your way into it. You don’t want to just throw all your trust into one person. People are inherently evil.

People are inherently evil?
D: They’re greedy. They’re selfish. They’re animals.

Do you think the industry you work in has influenced that worldview?
D: I’d think that anyway.

Unfortunately, if memory serves, this is not merely a summertime phenom. I remember those poor shmucks standing out there in some pretty brisk weather.

Also--I cannot believe that so many of them are straight. Absolutely blows my mind.

Most of those Hollister/Abercrombie "models" are gay/bisexual. Trust me. But kudos for finding the straight ones! I tip my hat to you.

How dare women treat these models as pieces of meat! We learned from a recent "talking to strangers" column that it's a horrible horrible thing if a man is too forward with a female model.

I think the assumption that male models are gay is stupid. It speaks more about you than the model himself:

1: If you are a straight man, it's a way of dealing with your jealousy.
2: If you are a straight woman, it's a way to rationalize it if they are not all over you.
3: If you are a gay man it's wishful thinking.
4: If you are a decapodian, it's because you don't understand human anatomy and assume that humans have 4 sexes.

nope

Can I be a straight woman who's worked around a lot of beautiful male actors and just assumed models worked the same way? Also, a straight woman who (like, I'd imagine, almost any straight woman in NYC) realizes that there is a higher percentage of gay men with ripped bodies and no bodyfat than straight men?

I think the assumption that women think all men should be falling over them and if not they must be gay is stupid. No women I know think like that, even the really gorgeous ones.

Thank you, Nope. I work in a modeling agency, and let me tell you, the number of hetero-flexible male models will astound. Are all male models gay? Of course not. But there are more than one would think, especially among the more high-earning ones.

I wish I was beautiful. Sounds like a gas.

Seriously. Plus, I could definitely use the $56,000 for standing around.

Get a state construction job, you'll get paid more than that for standing around.

You should have asked them if this gets them laid! I bet it does, like crazy, but still!

I also thought Derek was funny and smarter than the other guy. He actually had pretty good answers.

$56,000 to stand in front of a building. More than teachers, fire fighters, police, EMTs, and hundreds of other occupations that involve more than sit-ups and preening. Depressing.

Sep 01 11 - 3:42pm
nope

Definitely not more than teachers, and I'm pretty sure not more than cops. (At least for NY.)

Sep 02 11 - 1:32pm

@chinaski - You're comparing salaries of government workers to the private sector; two completely different realities (but yes, still depressing). Also: some teachers I know here (in NYC) get paid a lot more than $56K a year.

In NYC, teachers may make that. But I can assure you that I did not make that when I taught.
Teachers can make decent money if they're willing to suffer long enough though...

These are the people of the world that I care the least about. Why would I or anyone else want to hear their thoughts about anything?

You cared enough to comment. When most people don't care; they don't even click on the link. Fail.

Sep 02 11 - 3:45am
Ugh

What kind of a dipshit article is this? I lost brain cells from reading this.
I was a store model at A&F and it's not all glamorous as they make it seem.

the white guy's not good looking imho, his shoulders aren't broad enough and his face is just meh.

This article was a great read, witty answers and reading some of the comments were great. I especially liked the negative ones from people who think these guys are a watse of time YET read it and commented on it. Maybe if you spent more time in the gym then of judging these guys you'd be more positive with your attitude? :)

Their responses sound nothing less than that of a bunch of male prostitutes: dull, uneducated, brain-free, tired. Gee, I wish I could be a prostitute...uh...."male model". LMFAO! ;-D

I'm a manager at the A&F on 5th Avenue. First of all, a couple of these greeters were fired for giving this interview. Secondly, they do not make 56,000 a year doing this. They make about $15 an hour, plus they get free outfits. 90% of the male greeters are straight, about 100% of the girls are. So I don't know where you people get some of your information.

Oct 31 11 - 12:38am
Um...

Are these supposed to be interviews or psych sessions for the interviewer and her (?) life problems?

Anyone have Brandon's number? He sounds like a cool guy to hang out with.
