NY Post: Talk about falling on hard times.

The 25-year-old beefy ex-Marine who put the "dude" in prosti-dude has reportedly decided to call it quits after getting fewer than 10 customers over the past three months.

Markus -- the first man ever hired by Bobbi Davis to work at her Shady Lady bordello located about 150 miles outside Las Vegas -- has been put on the sidelines in favor of another gigolo in his mid-30s who performs under the name "Y. Not."

Though the Nye County brothel had temporarily stopped servicing women, Davis said she isn't ready to give up on her groundbreaking foray into male prostitution -- hoping for a happy ending at some point.

"We're just taking a little break," she told the Las vegas Review-Journal.

"Over the next two hours, Markus shares his personal bits, too. Originally from Patton, Ala., he felt abandoned by his mother after his parents divorced at an early age," Stadtmiller wrote.

Davis told the newspaper that the new prosti-dude has had about 10 customers of his own before an electrical snafu earlier this week in the bungalow he was using forced the brothel to close.

Davis hopes to put "Y. Not" back to work by May.

As for Markus, Davis said he's going back to the bump-and-grind, saying that he "went back to do [porn] movies."

Asked why Markus came and went, Davis would only say it "was a mutual decision."

Markus made hooker history in January when he became Nevada's first licensed male prostitute, but his brief stint at the Shady Lady was something of a disaster.

Before Davis barred him from any further contact with the media, Markus gave an interview to Details magazine and The Post where he compared himself to civil rights heroine Rosa Parks.

"I'm breaking through sexual segregation," he told The Post when comparing himself to Parks.

Markus, who like other sex workers has asked that his real name not be used, didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
