PROSTITUTION: WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?
The oldest profession continues to flourish, on the streets and in brothels, in expensive hotels and suburban semis.
Neither sentimentalised nor glamorised, this is a serious and subtle investigation into the wide spectrum of lifestyles and working conditions of female and male prostitutes. Do people become prostitutes out of choice, or lack of choice? Can you sell your body and keep your self-esteem? What do clients want? Who is exploiting whom? Is prostitution a simple pragmatic transaction, or is it symptomatic of a deep melancholy in our society born of alienation, loneliness and unmet needs?
Examining issues such as AIDS and drugs, families and lovers, homosexuality and male prostitution, this is a thoughtful, compassionate and personal exploration of the ways in which prostitutes earn a living.
