Barb Brents, Andrew Spivak, Christina Parreira, Alessandra Lanti (all Sociology), and Olesya Venger (Journalism & Media Studies), along with Takashi Yamashita of the University of Maryland, are the authors of "Are Men Who Pay for Sex Sexist? Masculinity and Client Attitudes toward Gender Role Equality in Different Prostitution Markets," which has been published in the journal Men and Masculinities. The article found that, contrary to popular belief, the 519 prostitution clients surveyed were more gender egalitarian than the U.S. population as a whole on most indicators. These findings point to need to rethink how masculinity and gender role attitudes affect patterns of male demand for paid sex. Parreira and Lanti are doctoral students.
