Dear RentMen Visitors, Recently AndrewSims chose to answer 16 interview questions and his interview was last updated on .
How do you go that ‘extra mile' in your life?
By viewing myself as the only competition. Accountability, transparency, honesty, integrity, discipline: by prioritizing these values in a day-to-day, process-oriented fashion, I am committing to self-improvement. Such a commitment inevitably associates you with others in the midst of success.
Tell us what you consider to be your greatest life experience.
My favorite and most memorable experiences tend to be personal, spiritual and subjective. As I age, increasingly my favorite experiences are culminations, the experience itself subtle: getting accepted into CSU-SB and graduating with my undergrad in Psychology; getting accepted into graduate school; launching my careers in yoga, personal training and astrology; and the simple but satisfying feeling of accomplishment after a personal yoga practice.
If you and I were on the beach having some wine and great food, what would you tell me about yourself.
Well, that depends what you would ask me! I'm not one to launch into narcissistic diatribes!
I've lived a varied life: ESPN journalist, Texas Hold 'Em poker professional, now sex worker and entrepreneur. I'd say I've walked a road of personal authenticity, gaining a hard-earned spirituality.
If you have to pick one thing that everyone else should absolutely know about you, what would it be?
I live a simple, minimalist, disciplined life.
I read often, both fiction and non-fiction.
I enjoy staying up-to-date on the ways of the world, be it sports, politics, technology or medicine.
And, while curious, I am not nosey! I respect privacy, and while I view myself as a personable fellow, I never cross the line into getting into your business or requesting details you may not be comfortable divulging.
What should others absolutely know about you?
Clients should know that, first of all, I am a real person. That means the Golden Rule shall be just as efficaciously applied to me as it would to anyone else.
Secondly, I trust and value every client; whether I see them once or regularly, I remember each and every one. The experiences are what I treasure.
Finally: lighten up! There's no judgment here. I'm open to any dialogue, and while I do have my boundaries and limits, anything which I choose to partake in is, by definition, consensual and something which I enjoy.
So have at it!
Name 5 things that you can’t live without.
What are your hobbies? What do you like to do in your spare time?
I live a disciplined, almost plainly ascetic, lifestyle. My "vanilla" life includes daily Ashtanga yoga practice, personal training, astrological consultations, teaching, and psychological training and study as a graduate student. Freud once said "life is work and love," and I love my work and consider that the foundation of my life. More recently I've fallen in love with researching and investing in cryptocurrency, as well as starting up a Zen meditation practice.
If we exclude any work whatsoever, "fun" for me consists of art, especially music. I also enjoy spending time in nature -- especially the beach! -- and experiencing tea with friends and new acquaintances.
What would you like your followers to know about you that is unique and even a bit personal?
I approach my sessions with psychological mindfulness, granting whomever I am with my full attention and presence. Currently pursuing graduate work in Mental Health, I consider my work akin to sex therapy rather than a hedonistic, fulfilling session. While I do not see anything wrong with the latter -- and, indeed, have enjoyed such sessions with prior clients -- I now consciously engage with clients interested in more than a purely carnal, physical act.
The following article is a strong encapsulation of my "bedside demeanor," so to speak:
What kind of diet and fitness regiment do you follow?
I eat ~90% organic and am abstinent from any type of drugs, caffeine, marijuana or alcohol. I lift weights 1-2 times per week and practice yoga 5-6 times per week.
What do you do for fun?
Staying active: any kind of sport, fitness class or outdoors-y activity.
Knowledge: a great book, course, lecture, or seminar.
Culture: traveling and exposing myself to experiences I would otherwise consider foreign, such as museums, exhibits, and people from broad walks of life.
Art: listening to music, exploring photography and scenery, spending time in nature.
What are your greatest personal traits?
I'm perceptive and compassionate. I stand up for my integrity and politely but firmly set boundaries. I make a concerted effort to cultivate daily gratitude.
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or you are more of a homebody?
I travel as much as the opportunity presents itself! I prefer to unwind from my day by staying at home, listening to podcasts, reading books, taking hot baths, and conversing with trusted associates. While financially conservative, I am always open to travel if the accomodations make sense.
What do you enjoy most about yourself?
Developing patience and contemplative acceptance; being of service to the world; creating sacred moments within the mundane habits of everyday life.
What’s your lifestyle? What makes you who you are?
A grounded authenticity in anything I do. Attention to detail, transparent honesty, and a full presence of each and every moment of life.
What makes you stand out from the crowd?
Relating with people from all walks of life in an authentic manner. I give my best in every experience of life. I never try to be someone I am not, and am thoughtful and intentional about how I spend my time.
What is your ‘niche’?
Granting my clients with full acceptance of their kinks and desires. I pride myself in establishing an authentic, safe environment where, within the sphere of our established boundaries, we are able to co-creatively explore a deeper level of intimacy and connection.
