"Gigolo" was a single released by The Damned in 1987.

The single was released with a bewildering array of 7" variants - copies were pressed on standard black vinyl, green vinyl, blue vinyl, red vinyl and yellow vinyl, and the coloured versions also included a poster sleeve. "Gigolo" was substantially edited from the album version, with around two minutes of the introduction excised for single release. A promotional clip directed by Gerard de Thame helped the single reach #29.

MCA also issued the single in Australia, Germany, Italy and Spain.

The B-side instrumental track "The Portrait" was used in the episode "A Womb with a View" of the television series Moonlighting.
