The Bordello Beefcake has called it quits. “Markus,” the first stud-for-hire at a Nevada bordello, has left the business after bringing in fewer than 10 clients since his debut in January, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported Friday.
But Bobbi Davis, owner of the Shady Lady Ranch, said she would press on without him. In fact, she told the paper, his workload has been taken on by a Las Vegas man whose nom de bordello is — wait for it — Y. Not.
However, Not has had his own share of problems. The paper quoted Davis as saying he had seen about 10 customers when an electrical problem in his bungalow forced the brothel to suspend his services until the wiring was fixed in May or June.
As for Markus, she said his departure was a “mutual decision” and told the paper he “went back to do movies,” an apparent reference to his earlier career in the adult film business.
Markus, Nevada’s first licensed male prostitute, had trouble from the outset, when he compared himself to civil rights heroine Rosa Parks in an interview with Details magazine, according to the newspaper. Davis also said some of his fellow female employees at the Shady Lady, about 150 miles northwest of Las Vegas, were not happy to have a man in their working ranks.
“I don’t know why,” the paper quoted her as saying. “It’s not like they’re competing for the same customers.”
In addition, I am sure the media attention was not helpful in getting more clients.
