Here is the most comprehensive empirical study ever published about male prostitutes and their clients. Written by one of the most distinguished international scholars in psychiatry and criminal justice, this book provides a carefully designed presentation of in-depth interviews with several hundred London “rent boys.” The interviews included a large sample of one-to-one conversations in a private room tape-recorded with the consent of the interviewees.

Dr. West and his colleague, Mr. de Villiers, bring you squarely into the everyday lives of male prostitutes and cover little known details of their lives, such as:
  • the drift into homelessness
  • sexual orientation
  • entry into prostitution
  • sexual orientation
  • threats of blackmail, violence, and murder by male prostitutes or their clients
  • attitudes and intentions of the male prostitutes
  • post-prostitution careers, legal and criminology issues
  • personal fears, desires, and interests of male prostitutes

    Encyclopedic in scope and depth, Male Prostitution never strays from combining high-level research presented in a readily understandable and often entertaining style and incisive insights and issues critical for both the informed layperson and researchers in human sexuality. Dr. West and his colleague provide is a source of unbiased, detailed information on the male sex industry and their clients which is unavailable in any other book published to date.
