Homosociality and Secrecy in the Experience of Men who Pay for Prostitution in Spain

Paying for prostitution is a male practice that transcends the individuality of the subjects who carry it out, since it has to be connected with the construction of masculinity and the fraternization rituals in the context of which these experiences occur. The consumption of prostitution for many men is a group ritual of masculinity and, for others, it acquires a collective dimension when the experience is shared through narration linked to the secrecy of the gentlemen’s agreement. In order to explain the homosociality and secrecy involved in the experiences of men who pay for prostitution, this paper presents the results of a qualitative research study which included in-depth interviews with men who payed for female prostitution in Spain.
