Following up on the debate over demand for escort services…economists take note–the University of Leeds has a job for you.

You will work on an ESRC funded study on the rise and regulation of lap dancing and the place of sexual labour and consumption in the night time economy. The post will involve qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis. It is based in Leeds, although some travel to other cities may be necessary.

Who said economics was boring?
