I´m looking for any direct relationship between type and prostitution.
Do some types feel more at ease taking part of such activities?
What types would freely choose this to make money?
What types would have to be forced to be found in this activity?
What about the clients?
Any difference between intuitive and sensor?
What type of prostitute could fall in love of one client?
What personality types are willing to take part in pornographic endeavors?

Well I have sixteen friends, one of each personality type, and we're all prostitutes. Most of our clients are found in "ghetto" neighborhoods, and together the seventeen of us bring in some pretty good money.

I do it mostly for the money - in fact, I am the money manager between all of us, and I get the biggest profit, even though I engage in the least amount of sexual activity. My ESFP friend, however, does it because she thinks of it as a competition in seeing who can 'get' the most - and she's actually winning at the moment, lucky her. Then, there is my ENFJ friend who is madly in love with one of the clients, even though this particular client is the one who gave my ENFJ prostitute friend several STD's - hopeless romantics, don't you just love them?

I'm actually in the process of making my own pornographic film - it involves each of the sixteen-type prostitute friends of mine, as well as dinosaurs. I'm short a dinosaur, maybe you could play that part for me, Curiousel.

This is a very loaded question. Because its like asking if there is a correlation between type and lifestyle choice or type and career choice. The connections would be dubious at best.

I mean one could easily conclude ESP's might choose prostitution if you're looking at it from a strong-Fi "I do what I want" perspective. I think the stereotype of the pimp is ESP (resorting to physical ways of handling business) but not sure this is actually true in real life. They're also often portrayed as NJs.

You could also argue ESTJs might choose such a career because they see it as a stable way to make money (I suspect many strippers might actually be SJs) and inferior-Fi might make them not care about the greater societal or moral implications.

I mean to honest you could read anything into any type on this one. You could find motivation anywhere. There might even be a stray INTP here or there (i'd bet money on a few ENTPs).

Now as far as porn goes I think the overwhelming majority are in SP land (I personally know a handful and one is ENFP the others are definitely SPs). Probably very Fi oriented as well. Again maybe some SJs, but doing adult movies is very different from prostitution and stripping. Movies are much more of an industry with a lot of physical and mental demands, and really short shelf-life I think you'd almost have to be either be in it for the money or have a strong center of gravity and self-defined moral compass to avoid getting eaten up because the business is so cutthroat. It's a very Se-oriented business I think from the standpoint of performers and production. I think there might be a hint of Te or Ni there on the part of web providers and content producers knowing what will captivate and sell vs. what won't.

As far as consumers and clients all bets are off. Anyone for any reason, but I think the one consistent theme is the exploration of the shadow side. Most porn deals with anima archetypes and shadow fantasies. So any type can be vulnerable, it just depends on what your thing is, because Jung is pretty specific, porn isn't about type or N vs S (that probably wouldn't make a lick of a difference since everyone has both N and S) it's about men in our society not having an outlet for the expression of their feminine side (but that side has to come out some way) so it is often expressed through anima projections (porn stars) or images of men engaging in acts (shadow fantasies) that someone might not be able to do in real life.

I don't think type has as much to do with it as personal values does. I firmly believe that it depends on the individual and his/her said moral compass.
