Summary

On survey data from 1999 to 2001 and 2010 to 2012, we estimate the demandfor commercial sex among British men. We estimate a zero-inflated count model,which takes into account the probability of not participating in the sex marketand number of times with a prostitute. We find that sex education in school hasa negative and significant role in the demand for paid sex. We also find thatmen with a typical middle-class income are more likely to buy sex. Travellingabroad or living in London increases the likelihood of British men buying sex.
