No, the escort man is quite different from the callboy. According to the term, an escort man has the task of escorting women, which is why he is also referred to as a male companion. It is particularly important that the escort can quickly adapt to any given situation as well as to his counterpart, as there is a very broad spectrum of possible encounters. The expectations for an escort man are extremely high.
A callboy, on the other hand, is a man who satisfies sexual desires against payment. In this activity, it is much less relevant whether etiquette skills are available for a restaurant visit in an upscale environment or whether the man has a high level of education. Usually meetings with a callboy take place only in a hotel room or at the customer’s home.
