Book Description:

Prostitution is a taboo subject that nevertheless permeates American culture in literature, cinema, and music. It has been a cyclical topic of public debate reflecting changing attitudes toward male and female promiscuity, the role of women in society, attitudes toward poverty and class, and most recently, the recurrent theme of "sex trafficking."

About the Author:

Melissa Hope Ditmore is a postdoctoral research fellow at National Development and Research Institutes, Inc. and Public Health Solutions in New York City, NY.
