Prostitution in Slovenia. Actors, image, problems ans relations
Prostitution is poorly researched in Slovenia in ethnology, anthropology or sociology. The reasons for this condition may be found in the marginalisation and stigmatisation of (female and male) prostitutes and their clients. The findings presented in this article are the result of the author’s nearly one-year investigation of prostitution in Slovenia, and in particular the information provided to him by the actors involved in it: prostitutes and their clients. Based on interviews with these actors and the use of other relevant sources, the article provides insight into the operation of individual forms of prostitution in Slovenia and into the behaviour, reflections, ways of living, and attitudes of prostitutes and their clients.
