This book explores the male demand for commercial sex, emphasising the role of cross-border sex trafficking activities in this phenomenon. While referencing the "supply side" of the plight of women and children, Samarasinghe primarily focuses on the demand dimension of the issue, exploring the theoretical bases of patriarchy and masculinism as explanatory factors underlying this demand, and analyzing the impact of the current forces of globalization on its structure and patterns.
