Official Statement From Rentboy.com: "Scandalous Rentboy Romp Caught in Media Storm"
Found this in my Inbox this morning…….
One of Rentboy.com’s classic advertising slogans is “Take a Pornstar on Vacation…Find him on Rentboy.com.”
This week an anti-gay activist and family values crusader named George Rekers was caught by the Miami New Times returning from a vacation with a rentboy, and the story has turned into an international media circus, with coverage on CNN, Colbert Report, BBC, The Daily Show, The Tonight Show and the blogosphere. We were completely surprised by this turn of events and we are following it closely. At rentboy.com, it is our policy to protect the privacy of any escort advertising his services on our site–the same goes for clients. Information exchanged between consenting adults meeting on our remains private. Mr.Rekers has built a highly public, lucrative career out of shaming gay men and women. If it is true that he took a rentboy “on vacation,” then he has brought this negative attention on himself. We reserve judgment, we don’t know all the facts.
Just to be clear, Rentboy.com is not an escort agency, we are an ad listing service for male escorts, where men place their own ads and work for themselves, so that clients can contact them directly. Our mission is to create a non-judgmental space where anyone curious about exploring male-male companionship can hire a man by the hour. We remain open-minded and devoted to privacy for the people who use our site, but we can’t take the risk out of leading a double life, or having a closeted or hypocritical career… If you’re a famous heterosexual homophobe and you appear in public with a rentboy with your pants down, you’re just asking for trouble
If you would like to Take a Pornstar or Male Escort on Vacation, Rentboy.com is where you’ll find him. Excess baggage can indeed be heavy and there is nothing like a hot man to help you unload it.
