Virtual Special Issue: Sex, Sexuality and Sex Work Culture, Health & Sexuality: An International Journal for Research, Intervention and Care

Culture, Health & Sexuality

Now in its 18th year of publication and with a Thomson Reuters 2014  impact factor of 1.78,  Culture, Health & Sexuality provides a high quality environment in which to publish cutting edge research on culture, health and sexuality. Papers come from a wide range of disciplines and have a strong international focus.

Published continuously since 1999, the journal offers a unique source of scholarship on sex, sexuality and sex work. In recognition of this fact, the journal has prepared a Virtual Special Issue comprising a sample of its most impactful papers on sex work and prostitution.

In their Editorial Introduction, Dan Allman and Melissa Ditmore reflect on the breadth and scope of sex work in papers the journal has published. They highlight leading areas of scholarship, consider the contribution of the journal’s papers to the well-being and sexuality of people who sell sex, and envision future contributions to sex work studies.
