Example text

I’ll do everything for him. I feel we belong together. That’s why I continue to work in his club. (18 years old) Field-workers notice that some boys who started receiving money for sex at an early age seem later to be quite confused by it. This might be a result of, on the one hand, unpleasant, painful experiences and, on the other hand, warm, affectionate and sometimes lustful encounters. Acquaintance with Sex Work A number of West European boys who work on the streets and in clubs have been sexually abused in their youth.

Boys who, in addition to other work or study, sell themselves as escorts or in a club a few nights a week, but who do not want to become involved with their colleagues at a personal level, are no longer an exception. They see their clients as the buyers of fantasy. They wrap up a virtually standard element, an orgasm acquired by means of a certain desired technique, in a ‘one of a kind’ experience. I have a client who likes to imagine me as a doctor. I come in, ask how he is. He then usually tells me about some sort physical complaint.
