Attitudes Towards Prostitution Depending on Context or Justification

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

We examined attitudes towards prostitution and assessed overall approval of the persons involved depending on four different scenarios of prostitution (casual, street, escort, and human trafficking). Findings indicate approval ratings increased if the person trading sex was supporting a child or had a client that provided extra money for school. Alternatively, they decreased if supporting a drug habit. Similar effects were found for client approval ratings. The resulting pattern suggests a possible “sugar daddy” effect within attitudes towards prostitution. The implications of these findings will be discussed with regard to their relevance for policy.
