M is for Mutual, A is for Acts reviews twenty-five years of Canadian research on prostitutes, their clients, street youth, and injection drug users and discovers data that challenge misconceptions about men who sell sex and the spread of AIDS.
In this book Dan Allman looks at how Canadian social theory has approached male sex work and how Canadian researchers have defined and measured HIV risks for male sex workers in the past. Allman offers a fresh approach for conducting research in the field of AIDS prevention and health care access for male sex workers. M is for Mutual, A is for Acts reveals the social, economic and political conditions that impede Canadian sex work advocacy and AIDS education and offers an analysis of the legal and judicial environments.
