Review

Achieves its goal to an astonishing degree....This is a pathbreaking, well illustrated book about many aspects of male sex work - historical, cultural, economical, ethnological, legal, medical, psychological and artistic. As the editors explain their aim (p. 462): "to open and clarify a new conceptually broader perspective on the male sex industry...For this reviewer, the book has been an eye-opener, and I suspect that it will have the same effect on many other readers. Especially all those involved with public health issues - from doctors and nurses, social workers and community leaders to the police and the criminal justice system, to public officials and politicians - would greatly profit from reading the various papers included in this volume.--Archives of Sexology Featuring a fantastic selection of authors from multiple disciplinary backgrounds, this collection sets a new standard for scholarly accounts of male sex work. The empirical depth is remarkable, and the conceptual contributions are refined. Male Sex Work and Society is essential reading for anyone interested in sex, sexuality, identity, work, and GLTBQ issues.--Kevin Walby, PhD, University of Victoria, author of Touching Encounters: Sex, Work and Male-for-Male Internet Escorting Full of intriguing information.--Yoav Sivan "Gay and Lesbian Review Worldwide " By offering a variety of different cultural and systemic nuances to studying sexuality more broadly and sex work more specifically, the authors provide a needed document for the important dialogues in research involving sex workers.--Theodore Burnes "Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity " An invaluable resource to academics and (under)graduate students interested in gender, sexuality and the political economy of prostitution.--Tan Qian Hui "Intersections: Gender and Sexuality in Asia and the Pacific " Anyone who is interested in any aspect of male sex work will find something of immense value.... I would highly recommend this book for academics and nonacademics alike.--Jerry Watkins "Journal of the History of Sexuality " Intriguing and engaging from the outset.... This collection is extremely well researched and passionately written, deeming it a necessary companion for anyone who has an interest in the broad and engaging field of male sex work research.--Lorna Barton "Wagadu: a Journal of Transnational Women's and Gender Studies " This collection provides the most comprehensive purview of research on the subject matter.--Michelle Manning "Contemporary Sexuality " Editors Minichiello and Scott have produced a beautiful, diverse, wide-ranging and highly accessible collection of articles.... I highly recommend this volume, especially to researchers just getting involved with this field or to educators who are looking to break students out of their beliefs that only women sell sex.--Thaddeus Gregory Blanchette "Wagadu " A comprehensive overview.... Male Sex Work and Society is a timely addition to the study of male sex workers and a strong contribution to the field of sexuality, health and gender.--Dr. Andrea Waling "Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health " Full of intriguing information.--Yoav Sivan"Gay and Lesbian Review Worldwide" (01/01/0001) Featuring a fantastic selection of authors from multiple disciplinary backgrounds, this collection sets a new standard for scholarly accounts of male sex work. The empirical depth is remarkable, and the conceptual contributions are refined.
