Male Prostitution


賣淫: 男性賣淫


  • 在任何時候,女性只有很小的群體有足夠的社會和經濟權力來購買性服務。

  • 男性中數量相當的性少數在性取向方面是雙性戀和同性戀,即他們除了對女性感到有性吸引力以外,他們要麼還對男性感到有性吸引力,要麼對男性專有感到有性吸引力。其中的一些男人並不介意為另一名男性的性服務支付報酬。

Prostitution: Male Prostitution

Male prostitution has never been as common as female prostitution, but it also dates back to antiquity. Again, imperial China, ancient Greece and Rome are well-known examples. In these countries the male “sex trade” was regulated, but, in the course of history, many other countries also had various formal and informal types of male prostitution. However, male prostitution has always served many more male than female customers. This has two main reasons:

1. Only a small minority of females have ever been socially and economically powerful enough  to buy sexual services.

2. A sizable minority of men are bisexual or homosexual in their orientation, i.e. they are either attracted to other males in addition to females or are exclusively attracted to males. Some of these men do not mind paying for the sexual services of another male.

As one can see, male prostitution answers to a demand that is inherently limited. Only a minority of women and men are potential customers. Therefore, male prostitution never had and never will have the same extent and importance as female prostitution. The following section will discuss the topics in the sequence of their relevance - first homosexual and then heterosexual prostitution.
