Abstract:

This qualitative investigation seeks to identify the sociocultural determinants and psychoemotional ramifications of essentialist gender scripting on female employees in a sexualized work environment (SWE), such as a comedy club. Sexualized work environments incorporate work and sexuality and exist on a continuum according to the frequency and intensity of the sexual economic exchange that takes place within them. In this study, interviews were conducted with 13 female employees at a comedy club in Southwest Michigan to explore the social construction of female sexuality in such an environment.
