Personal profile


I have been researching Swedish sex work policy and discourse since the late 1990´s, using social anthropological method and theory. What have interested me mostly are paradoxes and contradictions within this field, something I have explored in my Masters Thesis The Ideological Sin: Modern Swedish Prostitution Policy as Creating a Sense of Identity and Safety (2003) and the book Porn, Whores and Feminists (2006).

In my 
Doctoral Thesis with the working title The Swedish Sex Purchase Ban: Ethnography of a Law I explore the functions of the Sex Purchase Ban and links these to wider socio-political events and discourses.
