Researching Sexuality

The Politics-of-Location Approach for Studying Sex Work

(p.3) Chapter 1 Researching Sexuality
Negotiating Sex Work

Tracy Berger Michele

Guidroz Kathleen

University of Minnesota Press

Michele Tracy Berger and Kathleen Guidroz use their own experiences researching street-level and indoor prostitution and telephone sex work to discuss how standard research approaches taught in graduate school offer limited preparation for social scientists who confront the stigma of sexuality in their research, and the role that their own sexuality plays in conducting research with sex workers. They then offer a “politics of location” approach to fill this void.
