Resumé

This chapter introduces the concept and content of the book to the readers. It describes the aim of the book to be to elaborate the contingency of how we understand prostitution, and argues that it is often taken for granted in debates and scholarship on what prostitution, sex work or sex for sale are, but rarely investigated further. The chapter describes some of the literature that offers insightful perspectives on this and that in different ways serves as an inspiration for the book. The chapter then describes the three parts of the book, ‘Historically speaking’, ‘Speaking from experience’ and ‘Speaking about control’, and how the chapters offers different inroads into the exploration of the meanings and moralities of sexual commerce.
