Gigolo Vin Armani: “I mostly date single moms IRL; a good man is REALLY hard to find.”

I had the pleasure of interviewing Vin Armani, professional straight male escort and star of Showtime’s Gigolos. I’m not blowing sunshine up the ass of my guest (nevermind that after our Hangout he promised to send me a $1,000 bottle of his Bebi Vodka)  by saying that Vin is super-smart, philosophical and I believe him when he says he really, really loves women and is the consummate feminist. This man spends his days studying how successful, affluent women tick, what fulfills them and how to snatch their hard-earned Benjamins out of their lusty, manicured hands, time and time and time again.

Vin and I had a great convo about why single moms are so sexual, why successful women seek his services, and what he looks for in a woman (hey single moms – I’m looking at you).

  1. Before watching this video, I did not know who @VinArmani was but as a single mom I’m glad I watched for one reason alone. He made the statement that “when you know yourself you become less afraid…anything that you have more knowledge of, you are less fearful of.” Wow, I could stop watching right there. Fear can be crippling for anyone pursuing more out of life whether that be in a relationship or not. Although this video was not about the topic of fear, it certainly brought light to the subject. Great video Emma!


  2. What Vin indirectly mentioned but didn’t elaborate on is that the gigolo’s job, and only job, is to make his client feel good about herself, special, safe and like a woman while showing her a great time. Sometimes it’s in the bedroom but more often it’s via companionship.

    The industry is and has really been moving toward genuine companionship to a woman instead of the stud or hired gun for sex. Intelligent conversation and activities outside of the bedroom is where most of a gigolo’s time is spent with his patron. And yes that great time, companionship and intelligent conversation does come with a price tag. But as Vin so eloquently mentioned the woman often saves more money by hiring him than going on many of dates until she finds the “one”.

    1. Thanks for this thoughtful note, Anthony. The other point: Each and every one of us has engaged in subtle money-for sex exchanges. Whether it is a woman dressing sexily, a man buying a woman a drink — these are expressions of sex and money, but less explicit than that of a gigolo or other sex worker. We’re all hos and johns!

  3. Wow the interviewer was seriously the most annoying thing ever. Very confrontational but obviously so hot for him.
