Jimmy in Fallout: New Vegas

Jimmy is a sex worker in Fallout: New Vegas, who is only available for hire by other male characters. If a female PC tries to hire him he says: “Sorry, ma’am, but ain’t enough caps in all of New Vegas to make me do that. Nuh-uh.” PCs who hire him, or either of the other two sex workers (both women) at Casa Madrid, will complete the unmarked quest “A Bit of Slap and Tickle.” PCs with the Confirmed Bachelor perk can hire him for a reduced rate (which can be seen in this video, around 6:30)

Jimmy will reportedly only reveal his past to female PCs. According to him:

“What Marco said is true. The Legion attacked my village when I was 16. My parents were killed as examples. The rest of us, chained and dragged to some kind of camp. A Centurion there chose me as his tent servant. He was handsome, and gentle, most of the time. Said it was our secret, and he’d protect me. Gave me little gifts, stupid things. But Caesar punishes homosexuality with death, and we nearly got caught, and there were suspicions. So when he took me out into the desert… Well, I knew he was going to get rid of me. So I kicked him where it counts and I ran. And then swam. And ran some more. Wound up here.”

He goes on to suggest that homosexuality was still common in the Legion, as do other characters elsewhere in the game (see here).
