A literature review of prostitution in London hotels

Funmi Alalade, Michael Handrinos

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Sex work, also known as prostitution, is a social occurrence that has been known to exist or happen over the years. It is a social wonder that has caused divergent perspectives and disagreements over time. In contrast to other social concerns such as low housing or unemployment rates that the government seems to take precedence and attempts to solve, alas, the topic of prostitution still remains inconclusive (St. Denny, 2014). This paper will conduct a literature review from a historical, legislative, sociological and psychological viewpoint, which will help in understanding the trade in its entirety, in the days of old and presently. A probe into the connection between prostitutes making their living through hotels and their revenue, whether directly or indirectly, will be looked at. In addition, the paper will highlight the correlation between the country's legislation with the boost of use of these organizations.
