Debunking several myths, including the belief that all prostitutes are victims, »Rent Boys« paints a vivid picture of the men who service men. Through frank interviews with forty boys working in the sex industry, Michel Dorais shows that there are differences among them with regard to self-esteem, control over their lives, relationship to clients, and risk of HIV infection. He divides male sex workers into four types: »Outcasts«, »Part-timers«, »Insiders« and »Liberationists«. Dorais analyses the physical and emotional risks to which these young men are exposed and makes useful suggestions for family, friends and professionals who want to help them. This book has been expanded to provide an international perspective as well as a study of the role of child prostitution, organized crime, and the legalistation of prostitution.
