When most people think of sex workers, they tend to think of female prostitutes, however according to the editors of Male Sex Work And Society, a collection of essays and studies that examines the role of male sex work from an interdisciplinary perspective, including fields of study like public health, sociology, psychology, social services, history and mental health; there is evidence that shows that “The World’s Oldest Profession” had practitioners of both sexes all along. Victor Minichiello, who co-edited the collection and is an Adjunct Professor in The Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University, Melbourne (Australia) joins me today to talk all about the book and the history and of male sex work around the world.
