Description

Presenting the results of years of research and close contact with the world of prostitution, this book reveals the world of prostitution in its routine, everyday reality - not as an exotic world far removed from the lives of ordinary people, but as a world which lies at the centre of our cities and societies. Asking such questions as why do women become prostitutes and what kinds of men become the customers of prostitutes, the book allows the individuals invloved to tell their own stories. The authors also examine the dynamics of the prostitution market in Norway, where they undertook their research, discussing a range of theories and ideas about prostitution and its role in our societies. The book is about ordinary people and damaged lives, money and sex, love and human dignity.show more
