Nietzsche says that the habit of the philosopher was to consider everyone else, including statesmen, slaves compared to themselves. A big part of this, he adds, is that not having 2/3 of every day at your disposal makes you essentially a slave, no matter how many high-flown honors and dignities are bestowed on you in exchange. You see today, for example, among older Wall St. types, even when they make huge salaries, are tied down with the famous "golden handcuffs"; their lifestyle, wives, children, have tied up their money in all kinds of ways, they work like pack animals into their sixties.
In general ancient and medieval aristocracies looked down on labor (including commerce--I shouldn't need to add this, but I'm anticipating certain dumb counters about the dignity of the laborer as opposed to the greedy banker; both were despised); the motto of the Roman aristocracy was bellum et otium, war and leisure, and the duty of patricians everywhere from Archaic Greece to medieval Europe was to prepare for military enterprises and otherwise to keep clear of moneymaking, in particular of taking a daily wage, which was seen as dishonor. Their time was kept in hunting, athletic contests, love affairs, adventures, etc.; according to Kojeve only Christianity and Biblical morality made work dignified. It also made something else "dignified"; the sanctity of the body, or the idea that your body is your temple--another conceit that Nietzsche mocks. The Christian-Alexandrian civilization is based on the two myths of the dignity of labor and the dignity of individual human life, both of which would have been seen as soft and female lies by an ancient Greek.
These two moral conceits are what stand in the way of some, who would otherwise be capable, of becoming high-class rentboys. Now, don't get me wrong, the male prostitute was seen as execrable in Greece and Rome as well, but for entirely different reasons; it was assumed that if you took money from men for sex, that you would be the one on bottom. I think Martial or Juvenal remark, though, in decadent times, that men used to pay to be on top, but now they pay to be on bottom; so if it is a given that you could make money from having middle aged fags and faggotized men suck you off, while paying you for your time, I don't think something would stand in the way of a man of ancient Med mind. Someone is paying you to be your slave. On the other hand, the two moral conceits I mentioned above would stand in the way; because you would consider your body a temple, not to be sullied supposedly by this kind of dirty sexual act (and it is dirty), and on the other hand because you'd consider a normal job as the honorable alternative, because work is dignified.
I'd like to ask for a second about this second part, which is what my thread is about. Even if you grant that allowing middle aged men the privilege of paying you to suck your cock is faggoty, dirty, and dishonorable, I don't see what's much better about having a real job. You are still selling your body, and in this case also your energy and your mind, and not for a few hours a week, but for eight or more hours a day. You're at the mercy still of a faggot middle aged man, or worse, HR fat cunts and middle aged lesbians, who can fire you at a moment's notice and who otherwise inflict any number of indignities on you. Sure, you can save up to gain some level of independence, but so could ancient slaves, eventually buying their freedom. But I don't see any objective difference between this and being a rentboy, and in fact all the objective pros are on the side of the rentboy, namely, much more free time, being a lot more independent, selling only your body as opposed to your mind also, and in our time of decadence, being paid to be on top and to humiliate, as opposed to being an office bitch and being humiliated by coworkers and women or affirmative action cases in higher up positions. You're a contract worker and "entrepeneur" as opposed to taking a daily wage. To which you can add this, that as a formal worker you'd have to pay taxes, which is in itself an indignity today, seeing how your taxes go to support single mothers and their bastards, thereby making you a cuckold that pays for the upkeep of other men's children; among other ways in which your tax money is taken from you and misused. Why not instead literally jizz on the face of the tax collector and have him (or her, rarely) pay you?
Yes this may be an exercise in rationalization on my part, but I actually want to hear some objective argument about why having a regular job is in any way more honorable, as well as practically better, than working as a rentboy...assuming, of course, that you can pull it off and have enough clients and so on.
