Prostitution and Confinement: The Whorer 2.0

In this article we analyze the behavior of prostitution clients, or “whorers”, during the months of confinement derived from the global pandemic that we are experiencing. Despite the risk to life and health, the demand for commercial sex in Spain has not ceased in recent months, as can be seen from the testimonies of women in prostitution and the contents of the chat rooms of prostitution clients. This contradictory fact demonstrates the current strength of the patriarchal masculinity mandate in Spain – the first European country in the consumption of prostitution – and the hegemony of a failed model of masculinity in its humanity, incompatible with the moment of total vulnerability that we are suffering as a society.
