Prostitution in the Digital Age: Selling Sex from the Suite to the Street | [R. Barri Flowers]

Prostitution in the Digital Age: Selling Sex from the Suite to the Street

>Prostitution in the Digital Age: Selling Sex From the Suite to the Street explores the sex trade in modern times. For those without direct experience with the seamy, real-life world of prostitution, it can be easy to accept the glamorized depictions of the sex-for-sale industry as it is often portrayed in fiction and Hollywood or sensationalized in the media. In reality, the business of sexual exploitation such as prostitution, sex trafficking, pornography, and sex tourism is far from attractive and, in many instances, can be dangerous, if not deadly.

Publisher's Summary

Prostitution in the Digital Age: Selling Sex From the Suite to the Street explores the sex trade in modern times.

For those without direct experience with the seamy, real-life world of prostitution, it can be easy to accept the glamorized depictions of the sex-for-sale industry as it is often portrayed in fiction and Hollywood or sensationalized in the media. In reality, the business of sexual exploitation such as prostitution, sex trafficking, pornography, and sex tourism is far from attractive and, in many instances, can be dangerous, if not deadly.

It can also be highly erotic and esoteric, bringing together individuals caught in the world of paid sex, where anything goes and everyone gets what they want, and then some.

This latest book from award-winning, literary criminologist and bestselling author R. Barri Flowers updates the subject of prostitution for the 21st century, explaining why the commercial sex trade industry continues to flourish and exploring its proliferation in the digital world of the Internet, cell phones, and text messaging. The grim ramifications of prostitution-such as victimization, substance abuse, HIV, arrest, or even death - are addressed.

Careful attention has also been paid to the various individuals involved: those who are prostituted (female and male), high class call girls, streetwalkers, customers, pimps, traffickers, and other key players in the sex trade. For those with an interest in the broad range of sexuality and exploitation that constitutes the world of prostitution, this audiobook will keep you riveted from start to finish!

    "Don't waste your time"
    What disappointed you about Prostitution in the Digital Age?

    This was a very amateurish effort. The book is poorly researched, poorly written and poorly edited. The author seems to know nothing about researching a non-fiction work, and little writing ability. The author appears to have no special knowledge about the subject and her main "cited" reference source is Wikipedia. The same statements and "facts" are repeated numbers times.


    Would you ever listen to anything by R. Barri Flowers again?

    Not too likely.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance was okay.

    "Redundant!!"

    this is the most repetitive book Ive read in a long time. Its obvious the author was trying to hit the page minimums for her publisher. I would have liked to have specific details of the industry or stories to back up statistics.
    disappointing
