When thinking of sex work, we often think of it as a female profession, but it never has belonged exclusively to women. We rarely see male sex workers represented in popular culture, and we do, we often encounter either a sterilized, hetero-normative presentation. Male Sex Work and Society attempts to fill the void in scholarly research and discussion of sex work by providing a number of in-depth inspections of different aspects of men in sex work in the United States and globally. At over 500 pages, this is a hefty tomb of analysis, with subjects smoothly introduced by the editors, helping the reader establish a frame of reference as they transition between sections. Male Sex Work and Society contains examinations of the field in a variety of contexts, including history, public health, sociology, psychology, social services, economics, geography, criminal justice, and popular culture.
