Comparing prostitution and courtship with a new working-class practice of heterosexual barter called "treating," in which women exchanged sexual favors for dinner and entertainment or for stockings, shoes, and other material goods, Clement examines changes in sexual morality and sexual and economic practices during a period of intense urbanization and industrialization in early 20th-century NYC. She shows that treating had lasting effects on modern courtship and dating practices, the prevalence and meaning of premarital sex, and America's developing commercial sex industry.


ELIZABETH ALICE CLEMENT is assistant professor of history at the University of Utah.
