Abstract: Despite recent attempts to study male sex workers, within the overall literature on the sex industry they remain an understudied group. Yet evidence suggests that male sex work is a growing enterprise and the male body is increasingly seen as a commodified product. The expansion of men's participation as sex workers is complemented by the growing eroticisation of men's bodies in popular culture. For example, male-to-male pornography constitutes a sizeable segment of the US pornography market, about one third to one half of the $2.4 billion adult industry (Watson 2000).
