Buying the Girlfriend Experience: an Exploration of Men’S Experiences With Escort Workers
This study explores the men’s consumption of a commercial sex encounter known as the girlfriend experience (GFE). To derive value from the GFE, the consumer must provide more than money: he must commit emotional intimacy and reciprocal pleasure. GFE consumption is linked theoretically to value co-creation, pleasure, and consumer fantasies.
