Ben Foster works double shifts for minimum wage at a care home for boys with learning disabilities. With a young wife and three children under the age of five, he is ground down by poverty and debt. With a small inheritance from his gran, Ben qualifies as a masseur and is introduced to the mysterious ‘committee’ – a group of society women with one thing in common: they adore sex and don’t mind paying for it.

Authors Biography

Ben Foster works in a care home for young adults with learning disabilities. He used to be a famous masseur. He is handsome, charismatic, passionate and articulate.


“Gigolo is a well-written memoir, exposing Ben’s feelings such as how being desired by beautiful women boosted his lacking self-esteem. What I particularly liked is how it provides insight into London’s class structure, like old money versus the Nouveau riche. I think both male and female readers will enjoy this wild ride.”
Underrated Reads

“A stunning and surreal look at class and power, this book is a revelation.”
Whippet Reads

“Wow! This book holds nothing back as Ben writes about his life as a masseur that ends up being paid to do more than give massages to rich women. The author was honest in how he felt about what he was doing to make money and in how it impacted his marriage. Great hot and steamy read!”
Cristie Underwood (Reviewer)

“This is a story about a massage therapist who gets in over his head with some very rich society women… You have to read this story of sex, coercion, unfaithfulness and loose morals… Great plot and writing.”
Marie Angel (Reviewer)

“I read this book in one sitting and I might never look at a physiotherapist the same way… thoroughly entertaining and sexy.”
Kristell Talbot (Reviewer)

Roman Clodia (Reviewer)

“Gigolo is an entertaining romp.”
Dave Blendell (Reviewer)
