Abstract:
Although there are conflicting perspectives on prostitution in the feminist literature, female prostitutes are usually regarded as victims of gender-specific exploitation, either in the form of sexual domination or socio-economic inequality. Male prostitution has usually been excluded from feminist analyses on the basis that it is thought to be less exploitative than female prostitution. In this thesis, I expand upon feminist theories of gendered exploitation by comparing the experiences of male, female and transgendered escort sex workers. Using a qualitative approach, my research explores whether prostitution is inherently exploitative and what It conditions create and exacerbate sex workers' vulnerability to victimisation, including the influence of current legal approaches to prostitution.
