How one man risked it all to provide for his three children.
Ben Foster works double shifts for minimum wage at a care home for boys with learning disabilities. With a young wife and three children under the age of five, he is ground down by poverty and debt.
With a small inheritance from his gran, Ben qualifies as a masseur and is introduced to the mysterious 'committee' - a group of society women with one thing in common: they adore sex and don't mind paying for it.
With his dark hair, blue eyes, and robust appendage that the ladies dub Big Ben, the shy careworker is drawn into a world of private jets, Parisian sex clubs, state secrets, endless lines of cocaine and orgies in country houses with a Who's Who of celebrities, MPs and the international super rich.
Ben Foster's true life story explores the extravagance of old and new wealth in today's Britain and reveals how the super rich can find no way to relieve their boredom other than with multiple partners and through sex lives that grow ever more kinky and erotic.
As Ben's bank account swells, he acquires a taste for the good life. But what will happen when his wife discovers he has been giving more than just massages...?
“Gigolo is a well-written memoir, exposing Ben's feelings such as how being desired by beautiful women boosted his lacking self-esteem. What I particularly liked is how it provides insight into London's class structure, like old money versus the Nouveau riche. I think both male and female readers will enjoy this wild ride.”
