C|M|LAW Professor Alan Weinstein published (with Richard McCleary), The Association of Adult Businesses with Secondary Effects: The Legal Doctrine, Social Theory, and Empirical Evidence, in the Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal.
In addition, Weinstein presented their work from this article on February 25 at the Association of American Geographers (AAG) Conference in New York, New York as part of a track titled “Erotic Cities: Geographies of the Sexual Economy.” Over 7,000 geographers and environmental scientists from around the globe attended the Conference.
The Erotic Cities track featured papers that discussed various aspects of two phenomena: (1) the visible spatial sexualisation of the city as seen by the movement of commercial sex activities from the periphery to the mainstream, spatially and socially and (2) the complementary invisible spatial sexualisation of the city, with the internet providing a platform for those who want to convert their sexual desires into realities via various social networking sites.
