Scientists are a little taken aback by their recent finding of Swedish sex workers. The Swedish National Board for Youth Affairs published a study yesterday that found that 2.1% of Swedish males aged 16 to 25 had prostituted themselves in 2012. This is compared to 0.8 percent of women.
The scientists cannot figure out why guys outnumber girls. One possible theory is that most of the males are young gay men who have an easier time accepting their sexuality if they do it in exchange for something. Even more interesting is that 21.9% of those interviewed thought it was acceptable for people to be paid for sex.
And before you think that it's older people who are giving these young’uns their business, it seems that about half of the clients for those under 26 were also themselves under 26.
