Soccer & sex
a polyvocal case study of the effects of the FIFA World Cup 2010 on South Africa's sex industry
Langenberg, M. (2011). Soccer & sex: a polyvocal case study of the effects of the FIFA World Cup 2010 on South Africa's sex industry. Nijmegen: Radboud Universiteit.
This explanatory research aimed to clarify the consequences of the World Cup on the sex industry in South Africa from not only the perspective of the media, but also from other perspectives; Non Governmental Organisations (NGO’s), experts, local authorities and sex workers themselves. In this way this study made a contribution to narrowing the knowledge gap about the relation and effects of mega sport events and the sex industry. To answer this research question a polyphonic driven mode of research has been used. Several methods to gather data have been used; a literature study, participant observation and in depth interviews. It can be concluded that the expectations of the impact of a World Cup on the sex industry and hence the negative image and sphere which has been created around the World Cup in relation to the sex industry are only partly grounded.
