The oldest profession continues to flourish, on the streets and in brothels, in expensive hotels and suburban semis. Neither sentimentalised nor glamorised, this is a serious and subtle investigation into the wide spectrum of lifestyles and working conditions of female and male prostitutes. Do people become prostitutes out of choice, or lack of choice? Can you sell your body and keep your self-esteem? What do clients want ? Who is exploiting whom? Is prostitution a simple pragmatic transaction, oris it symptomatic of a deep melancholy in our society born of alienation, loneliness and unmet needs? Examining issues such as AIDS and drugs, families and lovers, homosexuality and male prostitutes, and the idea of legalised prostitution, this is a thoughtful, compassionate, and personal exploration of the ways in which prostitutes earn a living.

Synopsis:

The oldest profession continues to flourish, on the streets and in brothels and bedsits, expensive hotels and suburban semis. This is an investigation - neither sentimentalized not glamorized - into the wide spectrum of lifestyles and working conditions of female and male prostitutes. It addresses such questions as: Do people become prostitutes out of choice, or lack of choice? Is it possible to sell one's body and retain self-esteem? What do clients want? Who is exploiting whom? Is prostitution a simple pragmatic transaction, or is it symptomatic of a deep melancholy in society, born of alienation, loneliness and unmet needs? Examining topics like AIDS and drugs, families and lovers, homosexuality and male prostitution and the issue of legalization, this is a personal exploration of ways of earning a living, based on conversations and friendships with male and female prostitutes. The author's other books include "Acquainted with the Night".
