Rentboy Patron Rekers Gives Sex Advice for Teens

Colbert’s take on Rekers’ folly

Dr George Reker–who hired a handsome young man off to handle his bags while the two of them toured Europe–blogs about teen sex as part his website. And parts of it are really appalling

Take this story for example: Teen Girl Agrees to Have Sex for $50, Then Gets the Surprise of Her Life

Surprise of her life indeed–the girl was murdered! That sort of blithe insensitivity is found throughout Dr George’s Teen Sex Today blog where Rekers makes sure you know he is an experienced psychologist, psychiatrist, and professor, as well as a foster and adoptive father:

Not only have I successfully raised a bunch of teenagers into adulthood as a father, but as a clinical psychologist, I’ve spent many years counseling teenagers about their questions about sex. And as a university professor for many years, I’ve been teaching medical students, psychology students, and psychiatry trainees on how they can help teens with sexual issues.

Along with issues of abstinence and porn, Rekers also addresses “gender identity.” As founder the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality, Rekers thinks gays should and can be cured.

Rekers also addresses the scandal, claiming:

A recent article in an alternative newspaper cleverly gave false impressions of inappropriate behavior because of its misleading innuendo, incorrectly implying that Professor George Rekers used the Rentboy website to hire a prostitute to accompany him on a recent trip. Contrary to Internet stories based on this slanderous article, following medical advice Professor George Rekers requires an assistant to lift his luggage in his travels because of an ongoing condition following surgery. His family, local friends, and even another university professor colleague have offered to accompany him on trips to assist him in his travel. Dr. Rekers found his recent travel assistant by interviewing different people who might be able to help, and did not even find out about his travel assistant’s Internet advertisements offering prostitution activity until after the trip was in progress. There was nothing inappropriate with this relationship. Professor Rekers was not involved in any illegal or sexual behavior with his travel assistant.

So if friends and family members offered to accompnay him, why did Rekers hire this travel assistant, who confirmed ot New Times Miami that they met via
