Yes, an interesting article. Yet it does pass over a more modern take on the subject. Is not a gigolo a prostitute also? Do we have any euphemisms for the male side of the oldest profession?

Male prostitute is the only one that comes to mind. Isn't a gigolo not an overt prostitute, but a guy who cuts a swath through the society matrons with a view to living off them?

Ah, as opposed to a courtesan?

I thought a boy toy was a playmate for a cougar.

It is, Perry, but a price has to be paid by the cougar. Boy toys don't just grow on trees.

I only know what I see in the movies. But I suspect said boy toys often stalk said cougars.
