On Matter, Julieanne Smolinski tries out Man Servant, a San Francisco-based start-up which provides ladies with "a gentlemanly tailored-to-order mashup of butler, bodyguard and cabana boy". The entire experience sounds somewhat degrading for the Man Servant in question and is best summed up with the following:

Just try, if you will, to imagine a man ordering a female valet who was hired for her physical attributes and ability to please men via abject subservience and old-timey ideas of gender-specific pleasure, then to stress that this is “not sexual” in any way. It is hard to do.

Sexual or not, there is an element of degradation to ManServants that you’d have to be a complete psychopath not to feel, even if one was just at your bachelorette party and not pretending to be one of the guys from Mount Rushmore.
