This research into online communities for sex buyers’ analyses the themes emerging from the first online forums and review boards for men who pay for sex, which originated in the UK: Punternet and UK Punting. This presentation is based on the findings of my master’s degree research ‘The Construction of Masculinity in the Online Communities Where Men Talk About Their Experiences as Buyers in the Sex Trade.’ It has been supplemented by my ongoing PhD research at the Centre for Gender and Violence Research (University of Bristol), which analyses online communities for sex buyers on an international level.
My conclusions suggests: men who use online communities for sex buyers feel entitled to consumer rights, sponsored by the ‘sex work’ narrative; are interested in a controllable version of commodified women; demand the performance of sexual empowerment from prostituted women to match the ‘sex work’ discourse which currently permeates the sex industry.
