Forms of commercial sex extend beyond prostitution to include a broad range of businesses that produce sexual goods and services; many of these cater to a broader range of sexual predilections, and include Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex (LGBTI) consumers among their clientele. This article provides an overview of the shifting attitudes toward and culture of LGBTI commercial sex, and how the placement and access to LGBTI commercial sex within Western jurisdictions cannot be considered a simple response to patterns of supply and demand, but rather as the outcome of complex interactions of moral codes, legal structures, and other forms of regulations.
