Cleveland has been teeming with gay sex ever since the Republican National Convention came to town, according to reports.
Among those making Cleveland extra gay this week are male prostitutes who are in high demand among older, allegedly heterosexual male Republican delegates.
“Business has been way better. I’ve seen 10 clients so far,” one male escort said.
“Most of them were first-timers. You could tell they were nervous, but once they became more comfortable, they seemed to be having a good time.”
Another escort said he had already earned $1,600 since Monday — over six times the amount he usually makes.
“I normally only make $200 to $300, but I’ve been seeing lots of guys in hotels downtown,” he said, noting the boom in business near the Quicken Loans Arena.
The clientele has included mostly married white men between the ages of 40 and 50, said another escort who’s seen eight johns so far.
One escort added that he wasn’t surprised by the surge in business, saying, “The Republicans have a lot of delegates in the closet, let’s put it that way.”
Also booming this week in Cleveland, is the traffic on Craigslist’s “men seeking men” personal ads. The Daily Dot reports:
It seems like every man who’s in Cleveland for the RNC wants to have hot gayanal sex with another dude—or preferably, a giant man-on-man muscle orgy of conservative lobbyists in suits and ties (with maybe the butts cut out of the pants, though).
Many of the Craigslist ads were written in sado-masochistic language, with a particularly competitive streak running through them. Locals and attendees were ready to use, or be used, mercilessly.
“You are visiting. You can act like the true bitch bottom you really are and the folks back home will know nothing,” wrote one domineering top who posted two consecutive ads seeking to fill some “little RNC holes.”
And while male escorts and MSM are experiencing a windfall thanks to the RNC, female prostitutes aren’t so lucky, as The Post points out:
When contacted by The Post, females for hire said they’re making much less money than normal.
“Has business been better for me? Honestly, no,” one woman said before abruptly hanging up the phone.
And neither are Cleveland businesses in general. Via CBS News:
Several blocks away, employees at newly opened Coastal Taco say the supposed Republican National Convention economic boom has been a bust.
“We’ve sent people home, take the night off,” said managing partner Erin Clyde. They staffed up and extended hours, which was apparently unnecessary.
“I mean it’s going to be great, it’s going to be this huge windfall, and you know it hasn’t been,” Clyde said. “In fact it’s been a little bit of a ghost town.”
Heightened security concerns and Donald Trump’s controversial candidacy turned away millions of dollars in corporate sponsorship. That meant fewer parties with rented-out restaurants, and less cash for businesses and employees.
