Masculine Identities and Male Sex Work Between East Java and Bali : An Ethnography of Youth, Bodies, and
About this item
In the tourist area of South Bali, gangs of male sex workers from the neighboring province of East Java engage in street warfare to control the sex market.Masculine Identities and Male Sex Work Between East Java and Bali introduces the readers to the stories of these young migrants and the world of male sex work in Indonesia, where bodies are manipulated and violence is embodied to produce capital, and where accounts of marginality and the quest for success blur with reflections about failure. Based on participant observation among one youth gang and with a number of former sex workers, Alcano looks at how masculine identities are forged through social networks and work and the dreams and aspirations of a generation of young Indonesian men.
