Male sex work generates sales in excess of one billion dollars annually in the United States. Recent sex scandals involving prominent leaders and government shutdowns of escort websites have focused attention on this business, but despite the attention that comes when these scandals break, we know very little about how the market works. Economics, Sexuality, and Male Sex Work is the first economic analysis of male sex work. Competition, the role of information, pricing strategies and other economic features of male sex work are analyzed using the most comprehensive data available. Sex work is also social behavior, however, and this book shows how the social aspects of gay sexuality influence the economic properties of the market. Concepts like desire, masculinity and sexual stereotypes affect how sex workers compete for clients, who practices safer sex, and how sex workers present themselves to clients to differentiate them from the competition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Firmly grounded in economic theory and modern empirical techniques yet broadly accessible, Logan offers a groundbreaking and comprehensive analysis of this poorly understood market. This book should be required reading for a broad class of social scientists at the intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality.' Christopher Carpenter, Vanderbilt University, Tennessee
'Using an innovative combination of economic and sociological approaches, Trevon D. Logan takes the reader on a fascinating deep dive into the American market for male sex workers. Through a series of careful analyses, he reveals that the inner workings of this understudied market are profoundly shaped by the intersecting social dynamics of masculinity, sexuality, and race.' Rene Almeling, Yale University and author of Sex Cells: The Medical Market for Eggs and Sperm
'We have long needed someone to apply the lens of economics to the market for male sex work. Through these optics, Trevon D. Logan provides some of the first comprehensive empirical analysis of male sex work in the United States. This book advances our collective understanding of this utterly fascinating market.' Manisha Shah, University of California, Los Angeles
