Rising from the Ashes of Rentboy Comes a New Community for Male Sex Workers

In 2020, we had a great interview with Hallie Lieberman for VICE. Learn more about Molly House Project's history and founding story in the article,"Rising from the Ashes of Rentboy Comes a New Community for Male Sex Workers. "



Excerpt:

By convening focus groups with male sex workers, the pair discovered that after the Rentboy raid, men—including former members of the site—had tried to enter activist groups, but found themselves not welcomed. "There’s a perceived notion that, because the work is different, that we can’t offer anything constructive in those circles,” one told them. The culture of male and female sex workers is different, some focus group members argued. While female sex workers usually check their clients’ references before taking them on, male escorts do not. “If I asked that, I’d get laughed at,” one said.
