He’s the accidental gigolo. Young and good-looking, he can be your Mr Darcy … for a fixed fee. Jobless and down on his luck, Argentinean actor Francesc, or Cesc to his friends, needs to find quick cash. His best friend, Celeste, an occasional artist and part-time model with too much time on her hands, starts him internet dating and soon he finds a world of casual sex. When a date offers him cash for sex, he realises there’s money to be made from his natural assets and a call-boy career is only a step away. Cesc narrates the story of his career and the tricks of the trade with wit and dry humour. Part ingénue, part cynic, he leads the reader on a tour through the glamour and sleaze of life selling sex to rich female pleasure seekers. Set in modern London, Adventures of a London Call-Boy is a witty and cosmopolitan novel for aficionados of light erotic fiction which crosses over into general fiction. Ben Franckx lives and works in Leeds. He has published a non-fiction book, translations of poetry, and reviews for national newspapers. He has also edited print and online publications.
