Abstract A heterosexual community can be understood and examined as a marketplace where men pursue sexual goods from women by offering them other resources in exchange. Society therefore define gender roles as if men were buyers and women sellers of sex. This project examines this theoretical perspective outlined by Roy F. Baumeister and his Sexual Economics theory. This will be used to understand contemporary discourse and more general theoretical perspective on prostitution. Using this as a point of origin we will discuss women’s sexuality as a ressource against a theoretical feminist position. This project includes empirical qualitative data with political statements on prostitution analyzed to see the significance for the control of women’s sexuality in relations to prostitution. It is concluded that female sexuality is controlled mostly by other women, and that women do so by female control strategies to gain profit and goods in the sexual marketplace.
