This book provides comprehensive coverage of key areas common to the study of the female sex industry, as well as considering issues relating to male and transgender sex workers, young people who are sexually exploited, and migrant sex workers. It also includes discussion of more recent forms of commercial sex such as Internet-based sex work.

International in perspective, Prostitution combines sociological approaches with criminology and criminal justice studies, social policy, health research and sexuality studies. New to this edition:

  • Updated summaries of policy and law, particularly in relation to UK legal changes from 2008 onwards
