If you've ever dreamed of having a genetically-blessed gentleman at your beck and call, or simply want some guaranteed eye candy at your next party, why not hire a guy? This is 2015 after all, so if we can't have flying cars, why can't we have male servants who aren't strippers or escorts? Luckily, there is a San Francisco company that understands our needs, and they're finally launching in Los Angeles. Meet Manservants.
Founded by Dalal Khajah and Josephine Wai Lin after their internet search for a male assistant for a friend's birthday party became seriously sketchy ("We tried to find one on Craigslist and got dick pics galore," they tell Racked SF), the girls decided to develop a non-stripper service for women who simply want some sex-free, creep-free entertainment.
Our sister site has the full rundown of the company here, but all you need to know is that starting this Sunday, March 15th, you can rent a Manservant in LA for a discounted rate of $100 per hour, compared to the standard starting rate of $125 per hour.
Book a male entertainer, bartender, duo, or group here to officially become the best bachelorette party-thrower ever.
