Aaron Lawrence (entrepreneur) : biography

29 March 1971 –

Aaron Lawrence (born March 29, 1971) is an American gay pornographic actor, director, sex advice columnist, author and entrepreneur. Todd G. Morrison, Routledge, 2004; ISBN 1-56023-291-9, ISBN 978-1-56023-291-9. After graduating from college Lawrence embarked on an unplanned male hustling career which he parlayed into both a writing and acting career. Lawrence, who is openly gay then started his own gay pornographic video company utilizing his international travels as an escort to shoot amateur pornography films. He has authored two books, Suburban Hustler: Stories of a Hi-Tech Callboy (1999), an account of his own experiences as a male escort and The Male Escort’s Handbook: Your Guide to Getting Rich the Hard Way (2000), a "how-to" guide for those considering work as companions-for-hire. Velsen Noord, OutSpoken, October 2002. He has also written articles for several publications, including Anything That Moves and Unzipped.

Psychologist Todd G. Morrison notes that Lawrence came of age when being gay was seen as normal and HIV/AIDS was no longer defined culturally as a gay disease. In addition, in the mid-1990s the first AIDS "drug cocktails" marked a dramatic turning point in the pandemic so that a positive diagnosis was no longer considered a death sentence. Morrison notes the advent of the Internet for gay men to discover their sexuality and connect with each other online and that Lawrence is the embodiment of the "new experience of gay sexuality" much like Scott O’Hara, Tim Miller, and Wakefield Poole had been for their generations. Between his own work including promotions to advertise himself and his speaking and writing about the gay and bisexual escort industry he has helped revolutionize the public relation aspects.

In 2004 he became webmaster for www.GayGeek.com, a website which lists and reviews gay-oriented adult websites. Alexa Internet, Inc. In 2008 he launched www.AdviceGeek.com, providing "smart gay sex advice for men who have sex with men". He also developed AdviceWare, the software that runs the sites. He lives in suburban New Jersey with his husband Jeff whom he met in 1992, married in 1999, and who also helps provide illustrations for his various websites.

He quickly built a replacement on a private ISP promoting his escorting, modeling, and eventually movies and writings.

Morrison notes the advent of the internet helped gay men discover their sexuality and connect with each other online and that Lawrence is the embodiment of the "new experience of gay sexuality". Lawrence’s website was well-designed and offered updates on his availability and any appearances, as well as chronicling his experiences.
