Prostitution

Eine Begleiterin der Menschheit / A Companion of Mankind

Edited By Frank Jacob

Prostitution ist scheinbar genauso alt wie die Menschheit selbst und gilt nicht von ungefähr als das «älteste Gewerbe» überhaupt. Dieser Band versteht sich als interdisziplinäre, chronologisch sowie global umfassende Analyse des Phänomens und bietet dem Fachpublikum und dem interessierten Leser gleichermaßen eine breite Darstellung der Prostitution aus historischer, soziologischer, genderorientierter sowie kulturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive. Untersucht werden dabei die Rolle von Prostituierten in der Gesellschaft, die Rezeption des Gewerbes per se sowie die Rahmenbedingungen, unter denen sich ein solches etablieren kann.
Prostitution seems to be as old as humanity itself and is consequently not described as the «oldest profession» without cause. This anthology is an interdisciplinary, chronological and regional extensive approach to analyze the phenomenon. It provides a broad historical, sociological, cultural, and gender perspective on prostitution for the academic as well as the interested reader alike. It examines the role of prostitutes in society, the reception of the profession per se and the conditions due to which it is established.

Hidden Prostitution: Subcultures, Gender and Cultural Mobility

Extract



Introduction

The subject of this chapter is so-called invisible or underground prostitution. The term invisible prostitution usually means the form of hidden prostitution practiced by those who receive their clients in an apartment by means of classified advertisements, or who pick up clients in nightclubs, in bars, in saunas, in beauty parlors, etc.1 In this study, I have used the term invisible prostitution in a wider sense of the term, to include another form of prostitution: male prostitution in parks, public toilets, car parks, etc.
