He inspired great literature and instant erections in some of the most prestigious men of wealth, arts and letters, for Denham Fouts (1914-1948) was more than your everday male prostitute. Arthur Vanderbilt, author of Best-Kept Boy In The World, reveals his allure.

ASKED IN AN INTERVIEW what he would have become if he hadn’t been a writer, author Truman Capote said, “An attorney,” adding, “Also I wouldn’t have minded being kept, but no one has ever wanted to keep me – not more than a week or so.”

He was beyond being good-looking; he was the single most charming-looking person I’ve ever seen.” He loved to conjecture that “had Denham Fouts yielded to Hitler’s advances there would have been no World War Two” and he referred to Denny as “the best-kept boy in the world”. Nice work if you can get it. And Denny got it. He was a natural.
