Viktor, who’s an artist based in San Francisco and originally from Oregon, says in the video that he loves his job as an escort because “I get to hold people and scratch that itch that’s really primal. I feel like I have one of the most important jobs in the world I’m a really needed caretaker.”
Hawk Kinkaid, COO of Rentboy, says, “We are so proud of Viktor. He exemplifies the very best of what we look for in a male escort. He’s caring, dynamic, and articulate. He’s also very sexy. He’s the perfect model for our international pride campaign.”
Also, Viktor, because he’s not your typical male escort, says the Hookie win was especially validating.
“After years of being told that no one would want what I had to offer, I was suddenly on stage, holding a giant trophy and getting a hug from (drag queen) Alaska Thunderfuck. The applause seemed to be never-ending! The award meant that I was wanted. It meant that I was respected. It meant that I finally had a home in the hearts of the industry.”
