Gail Dines reviews Rachel Moran’s book, Paid For. She writes:

“Her [Moran’s] descriptions of johns reveal the underbelly of aggressive masculinity, and the emotional and sexual violence that defines the ‘relationship’ between them and the women they pay for. Alongside the lie of the ‘Happy Hooker’ image that the media perpetuates is the equally false image of the kindly john out to rescue the wayward woman. Think Richard Gere in ‘Pretty Woman,’ with his charming ways and generous supply of money that finances Julia Roberts’ shopping sprees at designer stores. Or the rehabilitated john in ‘The Good Wife,’ in which flashbacks show Chris Noth ‘making love’ to prostituted women. Never once do we get a hint of how johns behave in the real world, and the hatred, contempt and cruelty that prostituted women experience on a regular basis.”
