Re: My brother got offered $15k a month...
also, you never know. the real deal might have been SOME money upfront, promises to pay more later, a few months of sex with the old guy, then one day you see an eviction notice on the door due to non-payment of rent. you text the guy "WTF" and he responds with "sorry, my finances crashed due to bullshit reasons x,y,z and i'm unable to keep paying. sorry, again and bye."
result: the old guy paid a few grand to have sex with his latest boy toy for a few months. he greatly minimised his AIDS risks, greatly increased the convenience of the transaction process, and might have actually saved money as compared to shopping comparable male hookers.
something like that, anyway.
