Prostitution as a Morally Risky Practice

In Bat-Ami Bar On & Ann Ferguson (eds.), Daring to Be Good. Routledge (1998)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This is an article in feminist ethics which claims to present a middle road between radical feminist critique of prostitution and libertarian feminism defense of the practice. I develop the category of morally risky (in feminist value terms) and argue that prostitution along with marriage and consensual S/M sex falls into the category in male dominant societies.
