: Prostitution- A literature study of women’s own stories regarding the process in and out of prostitution. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att ta reda på mer om kvinnor i prostitution, främst om processen in och ut ur prostitution. Detta gjordes genom att läsa fyra böcker innehållande biografiskt material, tre böcker var skrivna av författarna själva och den fjärde av två författare som intervjuat prostituerade kvinnor. Empirin analyserades med tematisk analys och genus och stigma användes som teoretiska perspektiv och tolkningsramar. Resultaten visade att faktorer som ekonomi, traumatiska händelser och självhat utgjorde de största anledningarna till att man började prostituera sig och att utträdet ur prostitution var avhängigt faktorer såsom tiden, relationer och samhällets bemötande. Slutsatserna är att det inte är någon särskild personlighetstyp som blir prostituerad utan att det beror på flera samverkande omständigheter, därför är förebyggande insatser viktiga. Det är också lättare att sluta med hjälp av någon, exempelvis professionella aktörer.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to learn more about women in prostitution, mainly about the process in and out of prostitution. Four books containing biographical material were read, three were written by the authors themselves and the fourth by two authors who interviewed female prostitutes. The empirical study was analyzed with thematic analysis and gender and stigma was used as theoretical perspectives and interpretation frames. The results showed that factors such as economics, traumatic events and self-hatred were the main reasons for entering prostitution, and that exiting prostitution was dependent on factors such as time, relationships and the treatment of society. The conclusion is that it is not a particular personality type that enters prostitution but it being due to several collaborative circumstances, therefore preventive efforts are important. It is also easier to quit with the help of someone, such as professional helpers.
