Many studies have examined mens motivation for buying sex, and found that there is a wide range of reasons for buying sex from prostitutes. Many are seeking intimacy or a way to approximate intimate relationships they are unable or unwilling to develop. Just as many seek sex without intimacy or a way to get sex without the investment and compromises needed for intimate relationships. Some seek variety and want to fulfill a desire for sex with women of various "types," based on ethnicity, size, age, hair color, etc. A few are thrill-seeking by being drawn by the "thrill of the hunt" and the illicit nature of prostitution.
But most – in addition to the previously cited reasons for buying sex – is a pathology that is drawn by compulsion, addiction, or by other forms of social, psychological, or misogyny where the intent is to control and harm. Just as an alcoholic is compelled to drink and a drug user is compelled to do drugs, a sex addict seeks to feed his sexual appetite which – as with any addictive behavior – grows according to the amount of time he invests in his addiction.Reverse sting operations provide those prevention services have been proven to be easy to implement and are revenue producing for both the Law Enforcement Agency conducting the actual sting operation, the Social Service Agency providing the testing and counseling and provides resources for the countless victims who have become trapped in prostitution.
It is our premise that the underlying problem of the buyers of sex services and products is Sex Addiction. Treating the underlying problem just makes more sense.The Objective
