Men Who Sell Sex : Global Perspectives Paperback / softback
Edited by Peter (UNSW Australia) Aggleton, Richard (Associacao Brasileira Interdisciplinar de AIDS (ABIA), Brazil) Parker
Part of the Sexuality, Culture and Health series
All over the world, men as well as women exchange sex for money and other forms of reward, sometimes with other men and sometimes with women.
In contrast to female prostitution, however, relatively little is known about male sex work, leaving questions unanswered about the individuals involved: their identities and self-understandings, the practices concerned, and the contexts in which they take place.
This book updates the ground-breaking 1998 volume of the same name with an entirely new selection of chapters exploring health, social, political, economic and human rights issues in relation to men who sell sex.
Looking at Europe, North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa and the Asia-Pacific, each chapter explores questions such as: What is known about the different ways in which men exchange sex for money or other forms of reward?
What are the major contexts in which sexual exchange takes place?
What meanings do such practices carry for the different partners involved?
What are the health and other implications of contemporary forms of male sex work?
Men Who Sell Sex seeks to push the boundaries both of current personal and social understandings and the practices to which these give rise.
It is an important reference work for academics and researchers interested in sex work and men's health including those working in public health, sociology, social work, anthropology, human geography and development studies.
