Chapter Summary

This chapter offers some extra-legal elements drawn from other social studies - mainly economics and sociology - and shows how the reality of sex markets is perceived by other scholars. This obviously does not automatically mean that things are how they are described, but at any rate presents a different perspective which should be taken into account. Sociological research has had an extremely important role in keeping together "market" and "non-market" sex, which previously were kept far apart and unrelated. The latter fell under the shroud of the sanctity of marriage which could not be investigated without infringing the deepest secrets of a family.

Keywords: behavioural economics; sex markets; social studies
