Working Papers from Portsmouth University - Department of Economics

Abstract: This study provides an empirical analysis of the market for some male prostitution services in the UK. Flexible working hours, part-time working, and multiple job holding are considered as important labour market characteristics in this service sector. Statistical models helping explain the provision of a deviant and a more mainstream sexual service is reported, utlising cross-section data drawn from individual prostitute advertisements. The significance of various declared intrinsic endowments of the prositutes are examined in relation to the offer of these services, including age, ethnicity, physique, and masculine demeanour.
