Is prostitution harmful?

Ole Martin Moen, Journal of Medical Ethics, 40 (2):73-81 (2014)

Studie dochází k závěru, že prostituce není škodlivější než mnoho jiných povolání, která bez váhání přijímáme.

„A common argument against prostitution states that selling sex is harmful because it involves selling something deeply personal and emotional. More and more of us, however, believe that sexual encounters need not be deeply personal and emotional in order to be acceptable—we believe in the acceptability of casual sex. In this paper I argue that if casual sex is acceptable, then we have few or no reasons to reject prostitution. I do so by first examining nine influential arguments to the contrary. These arguments purport to pin down the alleged additional harm brought about by prostitution (compared to just casual sex) by appealing to various aspects of its practice, such as its psychology, physiology, economics and social meaning. For each argument I explain why it is unconvincing. I then weight the costs against the benefits of prostitution, and argue that, in sum, prostitution is no more harmful than a long line of occupations that we commonly accept without hesitation.“

Prostitution: Facts and Fictions

Ronald Weitzer, Contexts, 6, 4 (podzim 2007), str. 28-33

Přehled několika populárních mýtů o prostituci, a jejich srovnání s výzkumnými zjištěními.

„When I mentioned the topic of prostitution to a friend recently, he said, “How disgusting! How could anybody sell themselves?” A few weeks later an acquaintance told me she thought prostitution was a “woman’s choice, and can be empowering.” These opposing views reflect larger cultural perceptions of prostitution, as well as much academic writing on the topic.“

The Mythology of Prostitution: Advocacy Research and Public Policy

Ronald Weitzer, Sexuality Research and Social Policy, 7, 1 (March 2010), str. 15-29

Studie zkoumá postoje a prohlášení organizací, aktivistů a akademiků, kteří jsou stoupenci „tvrdého“ přístupu směřujícího k zákazu prostituce a srovnává ho s vědeckými zjištěními.

„Over the past decade, public policies on prostitution and other types of sex work have been increasingly contested, both in academia and in popular debates. One perspective, the oppression paradigm, is more and more reflected in media reporting on the sex industry and is steadily being articulated by government officials in the United States, Western Europe, and elsewhere. The proliferation of myths based on the oppression paradigm is responsible for the rise of a resurgent mythology of prostitution. This article examines the claims made by organizations, activists, and scholars who embrace the oppression paradigm, evaluates the reasoning and evidence used in support of their claims, and highlights some of the ways in which this perspective has influenced recent legislation and public policy in selected nations. The author presents an alternative perspective, the polymorphous paradigm, and suggests that public policy on prostitution would be better informed by this evidence-based perspective.“

Designing out Vulnerability, Building in Respect: Violence, Safety and Sex Work Policy

Teela Sanders, Rosie Campbell, The British Journal of Sociology, Vol. 58, No. 1 (Mar., 2007), pp. 1-19

Studie porovnává rozsah a druh násilí, kterému jsou vystaveny ženy na ulici a ty, které pracují v krytých provozovnách poskytujících sexuální služby.

„One recent finding about the prostitution market is the differences in the extent and nature of violence experienced between women who work on the street and those who work from indoor sex work venues. This paper brings together extensive qualitative fieldwork from two cities in the UK to unpack the intricacies in relation to violence and safety for indoor workers. Firstly, we document the types of violence women experience in indoor venues noting how the vulnerabilities surrounding work-based hazards are dependent on the environment in which sex is sold. Secondly, we highlight the protection strategies that indoor workers and management develop to maintain safety and order in the establishment. Thirdly, we use these empirical findings to suggest that violence should be a high priority on the policy agenda. Here we contend that the organizational and cultural conditions that seem to offer some protection from violence in indoor settings could be useful for informing the management of street sex work. Finally, drawing on the crime prevention literature, we argue that it is possible to go a considerable way to designing out vulnerability in sex work, but not only through physical and organizational change but building in respect for sex workers rights by developing policies that promote the employment/human rights and citizenship for sex workers. This argument is made in light of the Coordinated Prostitution Strategy.“

A Theory of Prostitution

Lena Edlund, Evelyn Korn, Journal of Political Economy, Vol. 110, No. 1 (February 2002), pp. 181-214

Velmi zajímavý pokus o aplikaci ekonomické teorie na fenomén prostituce.

„Prostitution is low-skill, labor intensive, female, and well paid. This paper proposes a marriage market explanation to this puzzle. If a prostitute compromises her marriage market prospects, she will have to be compensated for forgone marriage market opportunities. We discuss the link between poverty and prostitution and show that prostitution may decrease with male income if wives and prostitutes are drawn from the same pool of women. We point to the role of male sex ratios, and males in transit, in sustaining high levels of prostitution, and we discuss possible reasons for its low reputation and implications for marriage patterns.“

Out of sight, out of mind? Prostitution policy and the health, well-being and safety of home‑based sex workers

Phil Hubbard, Jason Prior, Critical Social Policy February 2013 vol. 33 no. 1 140-159

Cílem této australské studie nejsou ani veřejné podniky, ani pouliční prostituce, ale podceňovaný segment pracovníků poskytujících sexuální služby z domova.

„Policy discussions relating to the selling of sex have tended to fixate on two spaces of sex work: the street and the brothel. Such preoccupation has arguably eclipsed discussion of the working environment where most sex is sold, namely, the private home. Redressing this omission, this paper discusses the public health and safety implications of policies that fail to regulate or assist the ‘hidden population’ of sex workers, focusing on the experiences of home-based workers in Sydney, Australia. Considering the inconsistent way that Home Occupation Sex Services Premises (HOSSPs) are regulated in this city, this paper discusses the implications of selling sex beyond the gaze of the state and the law. It is concluded that working from home can allow sex workers to exercise considerable autonomy over their working practices, but that the safety of such premises must be carefully considered in the development of prostitution policy.“

From Venice to Jerusalem and beyond: Milíč of Kroměříž and the Topography of Prostitution in Fourteenth-Century Prague

David C. Mengel, Speculum, Vol. 79, No. 2 (Apr., 2004), pp. 407-442

Fascinující studie o podobě prostituce ve středověké Praze a o tom, jak skupina prostitutek vyslyšela volání českého kazatele a náboženského reformátora Jana Milíče z Kroměříže a zřekla se svého řemesla.

 „In the early 1360s a canon of Prague’s cathedral and former member of Emperor Charles IV’s chancery resigned his lucrative benefices. There was a long tradition of precisely such conversions from secular to religious life, but this relatively minor prelate, Milic of Kromeriz, did not follow the standard model. Rather than enter a monastic order Milíč began to preach publicly, regularly crisscrossing the city to deliver sermons in Czech, German, and Latin. Among those who responded to his message of repentance were a number of the city’s prostitutes. Some even became his disciples, depending upon him for their sustenance. With the support of the emperor, this group took over the city’s most famous brothel. Known to locals as Venice‘, the brothel was rechristened with the apocalyptically charged name ‘Jerusalem‘ “.

Policy Change in Prostitution in the Netherlands: from Legalization to Strict Control

Outshoorn, Joyce. Sexuality Research & Social Policy 9.3 (Sep 2012): 233-243.

Studie se věnuje změnám v Nizozemí v oblasti regulace prostituce, které lze vykládat jako částečný ústup z liberálních pozic a zavedení přísnější kontroly.

„The Netherlands legalized prostitution in 1999 and is currently debating a new bill, the ‘Law regulating prostitution and suppressing abuse in the sex industry’. The legalization made a distinction between voluntary sex work, which is legal, and forced prostitution, which remains a criminal offence. In the 2000s, evaluations showed that, while there is a reasonably working legal prostitution sector, abuse, bad working conditions and trafficking still occur. The media have played an important role in reframing the issue, and politicians have successfully set the revision of the legalization on the agenda, resulting in a new bill at the end of the decade. With this proposal and its framing of fighting human trafficking and organized crime, the Netherlands is reneging on its original progressive legalization by adopting a strict regulation of all prostitution. Sex workers will have to register with the authorities; the age to work in the sex industry will be raised to 21 years and clients have to check whether the sex worker is registered and not an undocumented worker. This article accounts for these two major shifts in prostitution policy in the Netherlands and discusses the consequences for sex workers.“

What’s Wrong with Prostitution? Evaluating Sex Work

Christine Overall, Signs, Vol. 17, No. 4 (Summer, 1992), pp. 705-724

Studie osvětluje některé rozpory mezi sexuálními pracovníky a feministickým hnutím.

„This article originated from the recognition of two problems concerning the nature, meaning, value and circumstances of prostitution within capitalist patriarchy. The first of these problems is apparent conflict between some sex trade workers and many feminist in regard to the acceptability of protitution. Women who work in the sex trade often feel condemned and rejected by many feminist women.“

Does Legalized Prostitution Increase Human Trafficking?

Seo-Young Cho, Axel Dreher, Eric Neumayer, World Development, Volume 41, January 2013, Pages 67–82

Zajímavá studie o dopadu případné legalizace prostituce na míru zjištěného obchodování s lidmi.

„This paper investigates the impact of legalized prostitution on human trafficking inflows. According to economic theory, there are two opposing effects of unknown magnitude. The scale effect of legalized prostitution leads to an expansion of the prostitution market, increasing human trafficking, while the substitution effect reduces demand for trafficked women as legal prostitutes are favored over trafficked ones. Our empirical analysis for a cross-section of up to 150 countries shows that the scale effect dominates the substitution effect. On average, countries where prostitution is legal experience larger reported human trafficking inflows. … The likely negative consequences of legalized prostitution on a country’s inflows of human trafficking might be seen to support those who argue in favor of banning prostitution, thereby reducing the flows of trafficking (e.g., Outshoorn, 2005).

However, such a line of argumentation overlooks potential benefits that the legalization of prostitution might have on those employed in the industry. Working conditions could be substantially improved for prostitutes—at least those legally employed—if prostitution is legalized. Prohibiting prostitution also raises tricky “freedom of choice” issues concerning both the potential suppliers and clients of prostitution services. A full evaluation of the costs and benefits, as well as of the broader merits of prohibiting prostitution, is beyond the scope of the present article.“

Sex rights for the disabled?

Studie zkoumající některé etické aspekty takzvané sexuální asistence.

„The public discourse surrounding sex and severe disability over the past 40 years has largely focused on protecting vulnerable populations from abuse. However, health professionals and activists are increasingly recognising the inherent sexuality of disabled persons and attempting to find ways to accommodate their intimacy needs. This essay explores several ethical issues arising from such efforts.“

Sporting Girls, Streetwalkers, and Inmates of Houses of Ill Repute: Media Narratives and the Historical Mutability of Prostitution Stigmas

Helga Kristín Hallgrímsdóttir, Rachel Phillips, Cecilia Benoit, Kevin Walby, Sociological Perspectives, Vol. 51, No. 1 (Spring 2008), pp. 119-138

Studie o proměnách stigmatu spojeného s prostitucí v průběhu zhruba sta let.

„This article examines the mutability of symbolic sanctions—or stigmas—applied to sex industry work by examining newspaper narratives in one medium-sized Canadian city over two time periods: 1870–1910 and 1980–2004. The article’s purpose is first to get a sense of what the authors call the ecology of stigmas—their relation to the temporal and spatial contexts in which they are produced—and second to give needed historical context to them and the representational tropes that currently dominate media, policy, and academic discussions about prostitution. This article finds significant continuities and discontinuities between media representations during the two study periods. In particular, prostitution stigmas are constituted out of cross‐articulations of narratives around containment, culpability, and contagion across the twentieth century, but the ideational contents and empirical referents of these narratives reflect the intersection of sex industry contexts with historically specific concerns around gender, sexuality, race, and social status. Stigmas of the sex industry, rather than being constant, reveal themselves to be both deeply ecological and accommodating to a range of concerns about female sexuality and normative behavior that are sensitive to historical time.“

Sweden’s abolitionist discourse and law: Effects on the dynamics of Swedish sex work and on the lives of Sweden’s sex workers

Jay Levy, Pye Jakobsson, Criminology and Criminal Justice (March 31, 2014)

Studie zkoumající zda takzvaný švédský model, který v rámci nákupu sexuálních služeb kriminalizuje zákazníka a ne poskytovatele, dosáhl deklarovaných cílů.

„The Swedish criminalization of the purchase of sex aims to abolish prostitution through targeting the demand, while decriminalizing those selling sex in an ostensible effort to protect sex workers – constructed as passive victims of gendered violence – from criminalization. Drawing from authors’ research and that of others, this article discusses the sex purchase law (sexköpslagen), exploring some of its impacts on the lives of sex workers and the dynamics of Swedish prostitution. We argue that the law has failed in its abolitionist ambition to decrease levels of prostitution, since there are no reliable data demonstrating any overall decline in people selling sex. Furthermore, we argue that the law has resulted in increased dangers in some forms of sex work. Dangers are exacerbated by a lack of harm reduction services, which are seen to conflict with Swedish abolitionism. Moreover, discourses and social constructions informing the sexköpslagen have informed the attitudes of service providers. In addition to specific outcomes of the law, we note evictions of sex workers, problems with immigration authorities, child custody and the police, and briefly discuss these themes. Where Sweden continues to attempt to export the sexköpslagen to other parts of the world, these elements should be carefully considered.“

Sociology of Sex Work

Ronald Weitzer, Annual Review of Sociology, Vol. 35 (2009), pp. 213-234

Autoritativní studie jednoho z největších odbroníků na fenomén prostituce na téma sociologie sexuální práce.

„This review examines key dimensions of contemporary sex work, particularly prostitution. Most research focuses exclusively on street prostitution and female workers, with much less attention devoted to indoor prostitution, male and transgender workers, customers, and managers. Furthermore, most of the literature examines prostitution where it is illegal, neglecting contexts where it is legal and regulated by the government. The review demonstrates how research on these topics can enrich our understanding of contemporary sex work.“

Sex workers talk about sex work: six contradictory characteristics of legalised sex work in Melbourne, Australia

Sufia Begum, Jane S Hocking, Jan Groves, Christopher K Fairley, Louise A Keogh, Culture, Health & Sexuality, Vol. 15, No. 1/2 (January—February 2013), pp. 85-100

Studie přinášející skrze výpovědi 14 australských sexuálních pracovnic pohled na jejich (legální) práci a na to, jak je či není přijímána okolím.

„Despite research suggesting that legal sex work is safe and that emotional risks and social stigma are of greater concern than health risks, much research on sex work has focused on health risks. Given the legalisation of sex work in Victoria, Australia, it is timely to look beyond health. Three focus groups were conducted with a total of 14 female sex workers on their experience of legal sex work, both positive and negative, and the social acceptability of their profession. Thematic analysis was used to identify the key ways that sex workers described sex work. Women saw legal sex work as safer than illegal sex work, but still not socially acceptable. However, they also described six contradictory elements of sex work, which was seen as: financially rewarding and entrapping; empowering and demeaning; increasing some opportunities while reducing others; flexible and demanding; offering both intimacy and competition; and leading to a ‚double life‘. While legalisation has improved the safety of sex work, stigma and discrimination persist.“

Regulating prostitution and same-sex marriage in Italy and Spain: the interplay of political and societal veto players in two catholic societies

Sophie Schmitt, Eva-Maria Euchner, Caroline Preidel, Journal of European Public Policy, Volume 20, Issue 3 (2013)

Studie zkoumá podmínky a okolnosti změny politického kurzu umožňující legalizaci jevů dříve považovaných za morálně odsouzeníhodné.

„This contribution adds to the scholarship on morality politics. It addresses the conditions of morality policy change by comparing the decision-making dynamics in the regulation of prostitution and same-sex partnerships in Italy and Spain over two decades. We seek to explain why and under what circumstances some political actors are successful in reforming morality policies. For this purpose, we develop a four-fold typology of morality policy change. Our findings highlight that the different regulatory dynamics in both Catholic nation-states depend on the balance of power among the change and blocking coalitions and their degree of congruence. We show that governments succeed in realizing their morality policy goals only if they are able to form a coalition with the relevant political and societal actors. Furthermore, the Catholic Church, not least owing to its historical ties with both nation-states (Italy and Spain), plays a particular but context-specific role.“

Prostitution Push and Pull: Male and Female Perspectives

Ine Vanwesenbeeck, The Journal of Sex Research, Vol. 50, No. 1 (January 2013), pp. 11-16

Studie soustředící se na pracovníky působící v pánském eskortu.

„Smith, Grov, Seal, and McCall’s (2012) analysis, focusing on how young men become, and stay, involved in male escorting, is a welcome contribution to the still relatively thin male sex worker literature. For this study group, notably supportive working surroundings, effective coping strategies, and a growing sense of “self-efficacy” eventually turn sex work into an increasingly comfortable experience and viable moneymaking option. In this commentary, I add some reflections from a broader perspective to these insights. I also consider some evidence on the numbers of men and women in sex work and make some observations on male versus female positions related to push and pull factors, stigma, and the experience of sex work.“

Prostitution 2.0: The changing face of sex work

Scott Cunninghama, Todd D. Kendallb, Journal of Urban Economics, Volume 69, Issue 3, May 2011, Pages 273–287

Studie o dopadu nových informačních a komunikačních technologií na odvětví sexuálního průmyslu.

„The use of Internet technology for solicitation by sex workers has raised important legal and regulatory questions. We provide a description of the new institutions that facilitate prostitution online, and their potential market effects. We then supply some of the first evidence on several key parameters of interest to policymakers. First, we find that workers who solicit online largely represent growth in the overall prostitution market, as opposed to simple displacement of the off-line, street-focused market, although we find sizeable displacement effects among sex workers in their 30s and 40s. Using a newly-implemented survey, we also find that most sex workers who solicit online engage in lower-risk behaviors than traditional street-based workers; however, workers close to the margin for migration from outdoor work bring riskier business and sexual practices with them as they enter the off-street-sector.“

What’s Wrong with Prostitution?

Igor Primoratz, Philosophy, Vol. 68, No. 264 (Apr., 1993), pp. 159-182

Pohled na prostituci z morálního hlediska; autor kriticky zkoumá důvody, proč je většinou společnosti stále považována za morálně pochybnou.

„Over the last three decades the sexual morality of many Western societies has changed beyond recognition. Most of the prohibitions which made up the traditional, extremely restrictive outlook on sex that reigned supreme until the fifties–the prohibitions of masturbation, pre-marital and extra-marital sex, promiscuity, homosexuality–are no longer seen as very serious or stringent or, indeed, as binding at all. But one or two traditional prohibitions are still with us. The moral ban on prostitution, in particular, does not seem to have been repealed or radically mitigated. To be sure, some of the old arguments against prostitution are hardly ever brought up these days; but then, several new ones are quite popular, at least in certain circles. Prostitution is no longer seen as the most extreme moral depravity a woman is capable of; but the view that it is at least seriously morally flawed, if not repugnant and intolerable, is still widely held. In this paper I want to look into some of the main arguments in support of this view and try to show that none of them is convincing.“

Asexuality in disability narratives

Eunjung Kim, Sexualities, vol. 14 no. 4 pp. 479‑493 (August 2011)

Zajímavá studie jdoucí za hranici kritiky mýtu asexuality u zdravotně postižených.

„This essay explores normative regulations of disabled people’s sexuality and its relationship with asexuality through narratives of disabled individuals. While asexuality has been persistently criticized as a damaging myth imposed on disabled people, individuals with disabilities who do not identify as sexual highlight the inseparable intersection between normality and sexuality. Disabled and asexual identity and its narratives reveal that asexuality is an embodiment neither to be eliminated, nor to be cured, and is a way of living that may or may not change. Claims for the sexual rights of desexualized minority groups mistakenly target asexuality and endorse a universal and persistent presence of sexual desire. The structurally and socially enforced asexuality and desexualization are distinguished from an asexual embodiment and perspective disidentifying oneself from sexuality.“

Ten Reasons to Decriminalize Sex Work

Open Society Foundations – Public Health Program, opensocietyfoundations.org (červenec 2012)

Deset důvodů proč dekriminalizovat sexuální práci – přehledně a na jednom místě.

„Sex work is criminalized either through direct prohibitions on selling sexual services for money or through laws that prohibit solicitation of sex, living off of the earnings of sex work, brothel-keeping, or procuring sexual services. By reducing the freedom of sex workers to negotiate condom use with clients, organize for fair treatment, and publicly advocate for their rights, criminalization and aggressive policing have been shown to increase sex workers‘ vulnerability to violence, extortion, and health risks.

This document provides ten reasons why decriminalizing sex work is the best policy for promoting health and human rights for sex workers, their families, and communities. Removing criminal prosecution of sex work goes hand-in-hand with recognizing sex work as work and protecting the rights of sex workers through workplace health and safety standards. Decriminalizing sex work means sex workers are more likely to live without stigma, social exclusion, and fear of violence.“

Psali jsme tehdy o tom, že ve Francii se snaží skupina lidí s tělesným postižením prosadit legalizaci sexuální asistence – služby, která pomáhá těžce hendikepovaným realizovat a objevovat vlastní sexualitu. Kdo by tehdy čekal, že do roka můžeme uveřejnit článek s podobným titulkem – jen Francii zaměníme za Českou republiku. A ba co víc, že bude o čem psát!“

Lucie Šídová, Jana Poláková, Hana Malinová a kol. – „Ze sexbyznysu na trh práce?“

„Kniha, kterou vám předkládáme, je završením mezinárodního projektu Přenos znalostí v oblasti legálního uchopení prostituce a jeho dopad na trh práce, který probíhal od srpna 2012 do července 2013. Nejprve se pokusíme popsat, jak a proč tento projekt vznikl, co nás vedlo k tomu, abychom vybočili ze svých již „vyšlapaných“ cest a zkusili něco nového, co by bylo přínosné pro naši organizaci a zároveň by pomohlo zodpovědět klíčové otázky spojované s oblastí prostituce: Legalizaci ano, či ne? Pokud ano, jakou by legalizace měla mít podobu?“

Barbara Havelková, Blanka Bellak-Hančilová (eds.) – „Co s prostitucí? Veřejné politiky a práva osob v prostituci“

„Kniha představuje českému publiku zahraniční, zejména feministické, teoretické debaty o veřejných politikách prostituce a současné trendy v právních úpravách této problematiky. Předkládá rovněž kritickou analýzu české situace – jak stávajících i navrhovaných právních úprav, tak vnímání prostituce ve veřejném prostoru, zejména mezi odborníky a odbornicemi, ve veřejné správě a v médiích. Publikace obsahuje řadu doporučení pro veřejné politiky dotýkající se prostituce a její právní úpravy, nenabízí ale žádná jednoduchá a rychlá řešení. Autorky a autoři zejména identifikují, čeho je třeba se při formulování veřejné politiky a právní úpravy prostituce a jejího uplatňování v praxi vyvarovat, a to zejména s ohledem na lidská práva a požadavek genderové rovnosti. Kniha detailně rozebírá a kriticky hodnotí návrhy zákona na regulaci prostituce, které v posledních letech zpracovává a Poslanecké sněmovně předkládá hlavní město Praha. Proč nejsme ochotni přiznávat lidská práva i osobám v prostituci? Co nám brání dívat se na osoby, které poskytují sex za úplatu, jako na právoplatné členy a členky naší společnosti? Proč významná část politických diskuzí o prostituci stigmatizuje osoby, které ji poskytují, a snaží se je zneviditelnit či trestat?“
