Demand for male escorts from an exclusively female clientele is on the rise, with a quarter of Australia's male sex workers now catering to women and couples, a survey of websites in 61 countries has found. Uganda and Argentina are the only other countries that have more male escorts seeking females and couples than solely male clients. And while the vast majority — 80 per cent — of the estimated 42 million sex workers worldwide are female, it is no longer difficult to find male escorts that cater to women.
