27 May Would You Rent-a-Gent to Run Your Errands?
Theoretically he has a Masters degree–intellect is a big turn-on for me. I just wish he had a little more chest hair…
Oh, Shucks! He’s in New Jersey.

Our customers are smart, busy and awesome. Women’s roles are changing and Rent A Gent is the product of our changing world. We can now enjoy the lifestyle that has been enjoyed by men for centuries. This is a guilt-free pleasure. It’s fun. It’s exciting.
Rent A Gent will deliver you a “wow” experience, guaranteed, or your money back.

I don’t know about you, but as a single woman I’d love to have a guy pop over occasionally to tighten the drawer knobs and reach those high places with the dust mop that I can’t reach. I could walk by and pinch his ass, like my ex-husband used to do to me. Or I could make ‘hubba-hubba’ sounds when he walked by.
According to the video posted on their website these guys aren’t for, ahem, you know. They’re escorts and more. They have titles like Chef, Boxer, Stripper, Actor, Firefighter. Not sure if those are meant to represent what they’ll do for you or to indicate their interests…a smattering of both I suspect.
So, would you pay $200 for Eric to wash your dishes? Isn’t that about the silliest thing you’ve ever heard?
I’m reminded of the movie, The Wedding Date, with Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney. She hires him to be her girlfriend for a family wedding. Typical plot–arrogant man, woman who’s confused. They dislike each other until they don’t. Love ensues and all is well.
It’s not that simple being single. Many of us face those challenges of who to go to the concert with, or dining alone. We face the societal notion that as single women we must somehow be flawed. It’s difficult being the odd one at a dinner party or the unescorted divorcee at the family wedding. Renting a hot guy for the event might be just the ticket. But, it seems to me that we create another set of problems when we bring strangers into our lives just so we don’t have to be alone. Maybe being alone at times is OK. And the idea that “We can now enjoy the lifestyle that has been enjoyed by men for centuries”, whatever that really means, doesn’t sit well with me. Doesn’t that reinforce the stereotype of women as nothing more than housekeepers–waitng on men, hand and foot…or that women are simply around for men’s convenience?
Would I rent a guy? No way. I could pay a plumber or hire a handyman, but I’d be uncomfortable hiring a piece of young beefcake to take care of what needs fixing! Besides, who pays a cleaning service $200 an hour? The site is full of photos of very sexily posed men—studs—all young and theoretically vetted by the female board of advisors running the site.
By the way, he’s available in Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and other states. I guess travel is extra?
