The Short Version: ManServants is a luxury service where gentlemen assistants come ready to serve a woman’s every non-sexual need. Hiring a manservant is the classy alternative to a hiring a stripper. These professional gentlemen show up to bachelorette parties and other celebrations wearing a tux and a smile. From the moment they walk in, they do everything they can to please, including serving drinks, painting nails, giving foot massages, paying compliments, and basically being the most charming and polite hunk in the room. Since 2014, ManServants has helped thousands of women bring out their inner boss babes and elevated hundreds of events in Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and New York City. If you’re looking for a way to class up a party, you can’t go wrong hiring some professional eye candy to hang on your every word. Just let ManServants know what you want, and the team will give you a unique experience you’ll never forget.
The idea for ManServants began with two women joking around at work. Dalal Khajah and Josephine “Jo” Wai Lin were working as copywriters at an ad agency in San Francisco when they struck up a friendship.
Months later, they were planning a bachelorette party together when it occurred to them that they’d rather have a hot male assistant serving them drinks than an oversexed stripper gyrating in their faces.
The two women began daydreaming about what they really wanted from men, and it wasn’t for him to take off his clothes. It was for him to be their personal manservant. After all, isn’t being pampered every woman’s real fantasy? Wouldn’t it be great if you could hire a sexy man to pour you drinks and shower you with compliments? Who needs a male stripper when you have a good-looking, fully-clothed gentleman at your beck and call?
“It started out as a joke, and then it became real,” Dalal said. In 2014, she and Jo quit their jobs and co-founded ManServants, a luxury, non-sexual, gentleman assistant service. “We wanted to reinvent chivalry and redefine what it means to be a gentleman,” she said.
The company’s target audience is the high-powered millennial woman (they call her the boss babe). She’s smart, she’s driven, and she knows what she wants from men. And it’s abject adoration. ManServants soon exploded in popularity, serving over 1,000 clients in its first year because many modern women want to have their every (non-sexual) whim met by an amenable, good-looking man. It’s a perfect way to indulge yourself during a birthday or bachelorette party.
ManServants has elevated parties in Palm Springs, New York, and Los Angeles, and the team hopes to expand to new areas as word about their elite services spreads from woman to woman.
“Being a manservant isn’t about the actions you take,” Dalal said. “It really is a state of mind where you want to be of service to others, and that’s what we cultivate in our team of truly amazing men.”
ManServants is the first company of its kind. No other luxury service offers gentlemanly assistance quite like this. Because of its paradigm-shifting premise, the team has been a pioneer in a new outlook on gender relations.
“It became this social experiment,” Dalal told us. “We completely flipped the script by having exclusively women in charge and telling men how women want to be treated. We were the first company to do that really.”
Over time, the female executives built a team of men they could trust to go to an event and be whatever the party needs him to be. These professional gentlemen have to use their social intelligence and other charming qualities to keep their clients satisfied. They go to private events prepared to give the women their undivided attention and unreserved admiration. They’re at the beck and call of everyone at the party, and it’s their job to keep everyone happy.
“We always say if she has to ask for something, it’s already too late,” Dalal said. “The biggest thing a manservant must do is read minds and anticipate ways he can make the day even better.”
While ManServants typically serves large, lively bachelorette parties, Dalal noted that the service is also wonderful for “any occasion where you could use an extra sexy pair of hands.” You can give yourself the royal treatment on your next birthday bash, or you can gift the ManServants service to your favorite bride-to-be. Sometimes friend groups call ManServants with a specific request, like going around a party acting like a beautiful idiot or telling everyone, “You’re right, and I’m wrong.”
Clients can decide what their manservant’s duties will be during the party, and they can even choose his name. ManServants encourages clients to be creative with their requests because that’s part of what makes the experience so fun and unique.
ManServants offers a classy way to liven up a party — with some quality eye candy at your service. These gentlemen show up in a tuxedo ready to please, and they spend the next few luxurious hours anticipating a woman’s every need. Whether you need someone to fan you by the pool or someone to make sure your drink is always full, Manservants will go the extra mile to keep you smiling, laughing, and having a great time.
ManServants is the kind of business model that works in a lot of different settings, and the company has recently started to explore the corporate world. Now companies can add some pinache to their events by enlisting the help of a team of manservants. According to the website, “ManServants look good to make you look good.” Their doting presence at an event can create a buzz by giving people a unique experience.
Many of the ManServants on staff have a background in modeling or acting, so they can be poised and scrumptious-looking brand ambassadors for companies looking to unveil a new product or get people talking on social media. For example, Moda Operandi sent the ManServants team out into the rain to hand out 500 pink umbrellas during New York Fashion Week. They saw over 1 million likes on Instagram alone.
In the past year, ManServants has partnered with Bravo, Warner Brothers, Armani, Macy’s, and other companies to up the caliber of their brands and create a memorable experience for clients and customers of all ages. The ManServants team will run errands, deliver goody bags, staff premiers, promote products, and generally serve the branding needs of companies looking to appeal to a primarily female demographic. No matter how outlandish the request — including reading “Fifty Shades of Grey” for eight hours at an NBC Universal screening event — the ManServants team exists to deliver charismatic, non-sexual fantasies.
“We love it. Honestly, we have the best jobs in the world,” Dalal said. “We never stop laughing, and we love being the masterminds behind this gender experiment.”
Understandably, a lot of women gush about the service provided by ManServants’ hunky team. They love being fawned over by attractive men who will fulfill every silly request from doing 20 push-ups to braiding everyone’s hair.
Jasmine wrote a thank-you note to ManServants after her bachelorette party and couldn’t say enough good things about the anonymous gentleman at her party. “He was perfect. He was charming, witty… and made all of us feel like there was no one else in the world but us,” she said. “Whatever you guys are doing, you’re doing it right.”
According to Jasmine, the eight women at her bachelorette party were making their coworkers jealous by talking about the wonderfully attentive service provided by a fabulously hot guy. “It’s hard to put into words just how phenomenal your service is,” Jasmine said. “I cannot wait for another opportunity to arise to utilize your service again.”
“The novelty and role reversal of the ManServant situation was far better than with male strippers,” said Katie Stainmetz of Time magazine. Katie and her friends had their manservant, whom they named Spartacus, deal card games, use his hands as coasters, hop like a bunny, and propose to the bride-to-be so she could turn him down. “Spartacus was like a handsome canvas who would paint itself with whatever we could imagine,” Katie said.
“I was wondering if I could learn more about your code of chivalry,” wrote Erin in a tongue-in-cheek message to the ManServants team. “It sounds like something my husband needs to read.”
“ManServants take on the emotional labor of what a hostess would do,” Dalal told us. “This is her time to sit back while he makes sure everyone is taken care of and looks for ways to elevate the party.”
For too long, women have pretended to enjoy watching male strippers dance around their living rooms during their bachelorette parties. No more. Now ManServants offers women the chance to truly enjoy themselves as a ruggedly handsome and unfailingly charming man puts her wants and needs first.
ManServants may have started as a daydream between two friends, but it quickly took off as more and more women decided, “Yeah, I deserve this.” Whether you’re looking for a post-breakup pick-me-up or a memorable way to celebrate a bachelorette party, ManServants can satisfy your inner queen with unparalleled service and unabashed devotion.
“Adoration is always best when it’s given with an audience of your closest friends,” Dalal said. “We deliver the royal treatment, and we encourage our clients to live out their fantasies.”
