Interaktion mellan män på Internetforumen Sekreterarakademin & Flashback : En prövning av teorier kring homosocialitet, maskulinitet & normaliseringsprocesser : där sambandet är köp av sexuella

by Ericson, Lisa

Abstract (Summary)
In this study I will analyze how men who buy sex interact with one another on two different Internet communities: “Sekreterarakademin” and “Flashback”. This analysis is carried out in an attempt to challenge the conventional image of the man who pays for sex.The aim is to examine the role of Internet forums for men who buy sexual services related to cross-border, both in terms of standard borders, gender boundaries, boundaries of sexuality and masculinity. I will also attempt to investigate what opportunities that are available to overrun different borders and how these opportunities affect the conditions of the various players. I will evaluate theories such as homosocialtet, hegemonic masculinity and normalization used by KAST (Köpare Av Sexuella Tjänster, the Swedish public support for clients of sexual services) and which are partially consolidated in studies published by KAST concerning issues related to internet based prostitution.
