Sexuality and sexual services in the urban economy and socialscape: an overview

Alan Collins

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Drawing primarily on some concepts in social theory, sociobiological reasoning and neo-classical economics, this paper provides an introductory overview to a collection of papers on an urban sexual theme. The papers address this theme from a wide variety of disciplinary perspectives and each contribution examines various facets and dimensions of the interplay of sexual desire and urban living. A simple conceptual model is offered to provide some guiding framework to the discourse on urban sexual consumption, which is a central feature of this brief overview commentary and also of the entire collection of papers. A number of research gaps and suggestions, that may help further to advance this research agenda, are then highlighted for possible future attention.
