This chapter highlights some of the progress that has been made in research on male sex work, and explores the diversity of the male scene. It considers the current policy context in England and Wales in relation to what is known about patterns, places, and forms of male sex work. The chapter provides supporting evidence by research and data emanating from the UK, but also draws on international work. It outlines the current policy context, paying particular attention to A Coordinated Prostitution Strategy (Home Office, 2006). The chapter then contextualizes the male sex industry in terms of its broad demographics and details a new model for thinking about research on male sex work. It also explores different forms and practices of male sex work in public and indoor locations. The chapter draws conclusions regarding the current regulation of the male sex industry, and makes recommendations as to where legislative attention should be focused.
