Abstract
  • This thesis on online communities for sex buyers seeks to understand questions such as “what can we learn from online communities for sex buyers?” We explore these issues with the framework of Feminist Critical Discourse Analysis and through the use of qualitative research of both the review boards at Punternet and the online community forums at UKPunting, located in England, where online communities for sex buyers originated. By reading the conversations of sex buyers, we can gather that what the men who pay for sex and write in these online communities are seeking, apart from sexual access to women’s bodies, is a commodified version of women that can be controlled in a manner that the evermore egalitarian roles of men and women in society does not allow outside of the sex industry. The online features and peculiarities of the communities work in tandem with other aspects of the sex industry (such as the agencies women work for) to optimize the sex buyers’ experience and their ‘male sex right’. Although highly informative, further research is needed, particularly at a transnational level, in order to better understand the reasoning and motivations of sex buyers worldwide under a patriarchal system.
