John Bratherton was featured in a BBC2 documentary in 1994 as a University of Cambridge graduate who had worked for the last seven years as a gay male prostitute.[1]

" He had weighed up the need to earn a living against the desire for personal control and this is where the scale had finally poised itself - a job ... that didn't appear to offer immense material rewards but that allowed him to travel and, by his own account, broadened his mental horizons considerably."[2]
