The escort who accompanied George Rekers, a conservative leader of the ex-gay movement, on a European vacation, says they did engage in sexual activity.

The escort, dubbed “Lucien” by the Miami New Times, told the paper that Rekers paid him to provide daily massages, in the nude. The massages included Rekers’ favorite move, Lucien said, which he dubbed “the long stroke.”

“Rekers liked to be rubbed down there,” he said. He originally said the two did not have sex.

Rekers has appeared in Florida and Arkansas as a paid witness, testifying against the idea of gay couples adopting children.

“It’s a situation where he’s going against homosexuality when he is a homosexual,” Lucien told the New Times. The paper broke the story of their 10-day trip earlier this week. Rekers hired Lucien via the web site RentBoy.com (NSFW), an escort site. Rekers maintains that he hired the escort to simply help him lift heavy things during the trip, and has also reportedly said that he was trying to save him from his sinner’s lifestyle.

Lucien didn’t contradict Rekers’s story at first, but now feels the need to speak out.

Lucien decided to speak out after a heart-to-heart with a friend, Michael, who alerted him to the grim realities of his client’s anti-gay activities. Lucien, who had originally declined to speak about the trip, now says he can do little good by protecting his erstwhile, fundamentalist client.

Rekers seems to be changing his tune as well, now claiming he took Lucien to Europe to preach to him about Jesus and get him to renounce his homosexuality.
