Review by:
Norman Gottreich

A study of imprisoned prostitutes revealed several common features. Nearly half had overt homosexual relationships, the remainder had obvious latent homosexual conflicts. None enjoyed heterosexual activity. Many enacted sadomasochistic roles with customers and pimps. Prostitution is often preceded by a traumatic event in adolescence, such as rape, pregnancy, or object loss in an individual exposed to sexual and aggressive overstimulation in childhood by rejecting parents.
