Documentary look at the 1996-97 effort of the dancers and support staff at a San Francisco peep show, The Lusty Lady, to unionize. Angered by arbitrary and race-based wage policies, customers' surreptitious video cameras, and no paid sick days or holidays, the dancers get help from the Service Employees International local and enter protracted bargaining with the union-busting law firm that management hires. We see the women work, sort out their demands, and go through the difficulties of bargaining. The narrator is Julia Query, a dancer and stand-up comedian who is reluctant to tell her mother, a physician who works with prostitutes, that she strips. Written by
The title might suggest this movie is exploitative or pornographic or something, but actually it is a generally light hearted look at a serious topic. The movie spends some time on the background of the 'star' of the film, whose mother is a famous NY doctor, but is mainly concerned with the serious topic of work conditions of sex workers. The idea is that just because a person works in the sex industry(here a peep show, but her mom deals with prostitutes), s/he still deserves to have their rights as a worker and person upheld. The movie works as much as a labor documentary (good in this era of decreasing unionization) as anything else. It has some work related scenes of an explicit nature, but overall it is not explicitly sexual at all.
btw I do think the scene where she tells her mother what that she works in the sex industry works. The movie is in part an autobiography and the scene is powerful on its own and as an important event in her life.
