This study investigates the effectiveness of an educational diversion program, or "john school," in changing the attitudes of men arrested for soliciting or attempting to solicit sex. Participants were 341 men who completed pre- and post-program measures assessing attitudes towards prostitution, attitudes towards prostituted women, and attitudes towards purchasing sexual services. Analyses revealed significant attitude changes in all three areas. Further analyses revealed that the program appeared to meet its goal of producing attitude change irrespective of prior experience levels with prostitution. Findings suggest that diversion programs like the one examined may be successful in their goal of changing the perception that prostitution is a victimless crime. (Contains 6 tables and 2 notes.)
