Gigolos and brasses
Gigolos and brasses: So another couple of reasons to be cheerful. They are the male and female versions of prostitution. Brass is supposedly rhyming slang 'brass nail' = tail. Anyway, not the most cheery professions, but it can be well paid! Here we see Warren Beatty in the movie Shampoo and Julia Roberts in Prettty Woman. Julia particularly proved that it can be a more glamorous profession and a little bit of luck and the right boots can turn your life around.
