Aussie escort’s new sex book reveals what men really want

If there’s anyone who knows what men want in the bedroom, it’s former escort Gwyneth Montenegro and now the Aussie has lifted the lid in an explosive tell-all about her experiences with clients.

Known for bedding 10,000 men during her 12-year career as a sex worker, Gwyneth’s book The Secret Taboo spills all the details on what she’s learnt about sex, with the escort writing a how-to guide for women in the industry.

The 39-year-old explains men love the “feeling of being needed and wanted. Wanted badly by a horny woman. It is their ultimate fantasy after all.”

According to Gwyneth, who charged up to $1000 an hour for her time, it’s not about what you look like, but being confident in your own skin that attracts men.

With one of the biggest insecurities Gwyneth gets asked about is women worrying about the size of their breasts and whether they should have surgery, the blonde insists men have their own insecurities too.

“A little-known secret in the punting world, is that there are quite a lot of men who will actively seek out escorts who are not the hottest of the hot women and go for someone who isn’t as classically beautiful, because they feel shy and sometimes a little inadequate themselves,” the Sun reports Gwyneth saying.

"There are many, many different women of all shapes, ages, sizes and backgrounds than you can think of making money from their body.”

Gwyneth also dispels the belief that men prefer younger women, explaining a lot of her clients preferred quality conversation and a genuine connection.

She’s also a big fan of keeping the mystery alive by avoiding skimpy outfits, and says there’s other ways to get male attention – and keep it.

Despite her claims she simply wants to write an empowering guide to help women and escorts in the industry be successful, not everyone has been a fan of her latest book.

With Twitter users slamming the Aussie for teaching people to “sell their bodies”, Gwyneth has hit back saying she’s happy to impart her wisdom onto others.

“With my much talked about 10,091 encounters behind me I don't need the knowledge any more, so I passed it on,” she told the Daily Mail.

“The thing is, if a woman has already decided that she is going to do this line of work, nothing anyone can say will prevent her from doing it. She's a human being, she has her reasons and her right to choose.”
