Licensed brothels are legal in several rural counties of Nevada. ...more on Wikipedia about "Brothel"

The köçek phenomenon is considered to be one of the most significant symbols of Ottoman Empire culture. The köçek was typically a very handsome young male rakkas, "dancer," usually dressed in feminine attire, employed as an entertainer and sex worker. The köçeks (plural köçekler in Turkish) were usually children of non-Muslim peoples living under Ottoman rule. Their ranks were filled from the ethnic groups colonized by the Turks (such as the Albanians, Circassians, Balkan Slavs, Armenians, Jews, Roma, Moldavians and Greeks) since the profession was held to be below the dignity of a Muslim and thus forbidden to Muslim boys. ...more on Wikipedia about "Köçek"

A male prostitute (or hustler) is a sex worker or prostitute who earns money by providing sexual services to clients. When providing services to male customers, male prostitutes are called "escorts", "hustlers", " rentboys", "punks", "trade", "call boys" or "boy toys"; their clients are often referred to as " johns". A hustler who does not self identify as homosexual, but who has sex with male clients is sometimes referred to as "rough trade". Some male clients (especially men who consider themselves straight) may prefer male prostitutes who are crossdressers or pre-operative transsexuals ("she-males"). While less frequent, male prostitutes offering services to female customers are known as "escorts", "giglis", or "gigolos". Prostitutes sometimes refer to their trade as "turning tricks" (the client or the service being the "trick"). The gender of a male prostitute's sexual partner, or the sexual act that the hustler participates in, is not necessarily indicative of the hustler's sexual orientation. ...more on Wikipedia about "Male prostitute" www.shortopedia.com , this is it!

A pornographic actor or a porn star is somebody who appears in pornographic movies, live sex shows or peep shows. Many actors/ actresses may appear nude in films (usually rather briefly) or on stage but even if they depict sexual behavior they are not considered erotic actors. To be considered a porn star, one must appear chiefly in porn movies and be filmed in explicit sexual acts, usually with close-up shots of the genitalia during sexual acts and where explicit nudity is involved. Due to longstanding stigma associated with this profession, it is almost universal for porn stars to use stage names and keep their real names secret; with the rise of the Internet, however, the real names of most porn stars are now commonly available. ...more on Wikipedia about "Pornographic actor"

Shortly after taking power in 1949, the Communist Party of China embarked upon a series of campaigns which purportedly eradicated prostitution from mainland China by the early 1960s. Since the loosening of government controls over society in the early 1980s, prostitution in mainland China has not only reappeared, but can now be found throughout urban and rural areas. In spite of government efforts, prostitution has now developed to the extent that it comprises an industry, one that involves a great number of people and produces a considerable economic output. Prostitution has also become associated with a number of problems, including organised crime, government corruption and sexually-transmitted infections. ...more on Wikipedia about "Prostitution in the People's Republic of China"
