Special Issue in “Studies in Gender and Sexuality”: Intimate Contexts: New Research on Sex Workers and Their Customers in Cambodia

From the “Introduction” (freely accessible here):

“Prostitution is an area that is an emotional hotbed for anyone attempting to theorize and conceptualize “agency.” Is selling one’s body a form of empowerment? Agency? What is consent? How can consent be conceptualized without a specific and individualized understanding of sovereignty and certainly how can it be legislated by Western organized non-governmental organizations (NGOs) when it cannot even be agreed upon between states in the United States? Or is it part of an ongoing dynamic of violence and abuse? An attempt at mastery? Where is desire in this mix? Does it matter?”
