Description

Dr Philip Birch, Western Sydney University presents:

Prostitution and Procuring Sexual Services: Why men buy sex?

The lecture will be present findings from an Australian study, in which 309 men who procure sexual services in New South Wales, Australia were surveyed and 36 in-depth interviews were held with purchasers and providers of sexual services and groups who have particular interest in the sex work industry. The empirical study examines the procurement of female sexual services with a focus on the personal and social aspects of men who procure such exchanges, offering an insight into the demographics of men who purchase sexual services as well as why they purchase sex. Consideration in the lecture will also given to the views of particular interest groups who have contributed to the debate, policy and legislative developments. Significant reasons for purchasing sex that emerged from the dataset are: seeking affection, preventing loneliness, procuring a desired service and engaging in a sexual act without commitment. This lecture will bring together existing literature with analyses of the new data, and present a multi-factor model of men’s procurement of sexual services. This model, MAPSS (Multi factor Analysis choice model for the Procurement of Sexual Services), shows the complexities surrounding men’s purchasing of sex. The lecture will conclude by considering what contribution the understanding of the personal and social aspects of men who procure sexual services has on re-theorising the purchasing of sex in the 21st Century.
