Encouraged by her married boyfriend Peter (Brad Bartram), who happens to be a magazine publisher, ambitious writer Danielle (Lauren Hays) researches an article about male escorts. First of all, what sort of woman needs a gigolo? Judging from her initial research, the answer is young, pulchritudinous socialites.

Admittedly, realism doesn't rear its ugly head very often, but who cares? This boudoir fantasy is so unapologetic about its characters' sexuality that it could start a hot new trend: gigolo gift certificates
