Last year, a startup called ManServants launched, promising to give women what they really want: a man for hire to anticipate their needs and pamper them.
CEO and cofounder Josephine Wai Lin tells Business Insider that her service “started as a joke and it became way too real.”
Last fall, ManServants launched in San Francisco, and then in Los Angeles. Most recently, the very real startup launched in New York City. Soon, Lin says it will expand to Las Vegas.
When might you need a ManServant? Any time, really. ManServants gives a few examples on their website: bachelorette parties, girls’ nights out, and a pool party needing a cabana boy, just to name a few. Wai Lin says ManServants have been hired for a few gay weddings, too.
We were curious about the service, so we decided to round up some friends and try it for ourselves.
