"he had an affair with a rent boy"

1. Sounds like a line from 'ello John, got a new motor? by Alexei Sayle
He had an affair with a rent boy
He had an affair with a rent boy
'Ello John got a new motor
'Ello John got a new motor

2. I don't think 23 years old counts as 'rent-boy' unless we treat 'rent-boy' as a synonym for male prostitute of any age.

3. Affair? Surely 'repeatedly paid the same male prostitute for sex'. To me affair implies, amongst other things, not paying for / being paid for the sex.
