Book review: Male Sex Work and Society, edited by Victor Minichiello and John Scott

This new collection explores for the fist time male sex work from a rich array of perspectives and disciplines. It aims to help enrich the ways in which we view both male sex work as a field of commerce and male sex worker themselves.

Leading contributors examine the field both historically and cross-culturally from fields including public health, sociology, psychology, social services, history, filmography, economics, mental health, criminal justice, geography, and migration studies, and more.

Synthesizing introductions by the editors help the reader understand the implications of the fidings and conclusions for scholars, practitioners, students, and members of the interested/concerned public.
