If you are wondering how to become a male escort, there are no specific qualifications, although there are traits that would be a definite advantage. Male escorts accompany women to parties, business functions, dinners, theater outings, art gallery openings and just about any event where someone may need or want a companion with them. It helps if you have a modeling background, and you will probably have to get a portfolio of photographs together to apply for work, although you can also work for yourself as a male escort. Of course, you will need to be personable, attractive, well groomed, confident and able to feel at home in a fancy art gallery sipping champagne, or at a stuffy and formal business dinner. It is also important to understand that a male escort is not a prostitute, and most reputable escort companies make this distinction.
