Wilcox, Aidan and Christmann, Kris (2008) Getting paid for sex is my kick: a qualitative study of male sex workers. In: Sex as Crime? Willan Publishing, London, UK, pp. 118-136. ISBN 978-1-84392-267-4

As with its female counterpart, male sex work (MSW) has generally been regarded as deeply problematic, either because of negative societal attitudes to the selling of sex or the prevalence of psychosocial and economic problems amongst those attracted to MSW and the attendant health risks and dangers encountered whilst engaged in it. While the phenomenon of female sex work has received a great deal of criminological scrutiny, there has been comparatively less attention paid to male sex workers (MSWs). The research which we report on in this chapter aimed to further our understanding of the motivations of MSWs, the risks they face, their engagement with support agencies and their intentions for the future.
