I would use the same that the Egyptians call some women - SHA-MOOTA meaning prostitute (slapper, slut etc), If a guy takes money for sex thats what he is too, except you would say SHA-MOOT for a man, im sure he will understand :roll:

In Zanzibar they have a briliant word for the beach sellers that hassle you. It's Papissi which means Tic.
I quite like this saying, as it seems quite apt!
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.

Well, they do call the gigolos' customers mummia (mummies). It's pretty self-explanatory.
