What kind of job description came with this position?
It’s described as "modelling." Really it’s, "Stand there with your shirt off in boardshorts and zinc and glasses."
Do you ever feel silly?
Of course. I feel like an object and a tool, but the job is really flexible, and it pays pretty well for what you do just standing there.
Do you mind if I inquire how much? I’m thinking about applying.
Uh, yeah. It pays me a decent amount. It allows me to be able to stay in New York.
So... a lot?
Quite a bit. Last year I made $56,000.
Just standing around and looking beautiful? That’s incredible.
I was there a lot.
How do you sleep at night?
I know that my bills are paid. It's kind of like being a stripper, but it’s not as sleazy. All we do is stand here and take photos.
Do people touch you a lot?
Oh yeah. Women just see you on the street with your shirt off, and they think it’s okay to touch. But if roles were reversed they’d be calling the police.
Why are male models better in bed?
I don’t know if they are.
Are you good in bed?
You’d have to ask my partners.
Isn’t sex a big part of your job?
I mean, you’re selling sex but it doesn’t mean you’re better than the next guy. Models have to convey sex. Males especially. That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re good in bed. I’m okay.
My boyfriend, whom I love, cheated on me and I found out. Can I take him back or is it over for good?
I think the relationship might be over for good. I think it’s just taboo. You just don’t do it. And if you do do it, then the trust won’t ever be there. There are relationships that can continue and flourish afterwards but it just takes tons of work. The damage is done.
How can I convince my girlfriend to have anal sex?
That’s taboo for me. I’m not into that.
Did you have a bad experience?
I tried it once. There’s just some things that aren’t for you. I don’t drink and smoke and I have no desire to. I can’t even advise you, especially when I’m not into it. Sorry.
You’re really well-groomed, shaved and all that. Do you expect the same in a girl?
Yeah of course. Hair down there, all that — it’s important. Most of the time, I like it all gone. It looks well-groomed.
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?
It’s possible. I have a platonic friend.
Is she ugly?
She’s very pretty. It’s just not there though. I just know it wouldn’t work. I’ve seen her in relationships before so I know she would get on my nerves. After you break up with an ex you can be friends with them as well.
You can? How do you do that?
It takes a lot of trust in your current partner to know what’s done between you two is done completely.
But, the real question is, is it ever done?
I think it can be.
