Gigolos, who cater exclusively to women and used to be considered a sort of urban legend, has now become mainstream as more women are willing to pay for sex in no-strings-attached situations.
According to some women, they like paying for what they called the "perfect boyfriend experience", because at the end of the night, they pay the guy to go away.
"I definitely don't want somebody telling me what I should be doing with my money, or my time, or anything like that," ABC News quoted Heather Smith, a former stripper as saying.
"This works perfect for me. I know they aren't going to call. I don't want them to call. I know that whatever I say is what I say and they either like it or they don't, I don't care, and there's a freedom there. There's a liberty in just being whoever you are and knowing it doesn't matter," Smith said.
Reality TV series 'Gigolos' helped draw back the curtain on the world of male gigolos. The show chronicles the lives of five straight male escorts, Brace, Nick, Vin, Steven and Jimmy, who live in Las Vegas and are employed by a real agency, Cowboys 4 Angels.
Garren James, 36, a former gigolo, is their agent and what some would call a pimp.
"Sex for money is illegal," James said.
"It's not illegal to charge somebody for your time, and that's basically what we're doing. We're charging somebody for somebody's time." He said.
That mantra, where payment up front is no guarantee of sex for clients, is legal in all states where the Cowboys 4 Angels services are available -- prostitution, by contract, is defined as a guarantee of sex for money and therefore illegal.
Vin, who has a live-in girlfriend and was a former philosophy major, believes that what he is doing is not prostitution.
