American Courtesans is a feature documentary that takes you into the lives of American Sex Workers. These women discuss with you candidly what brought them to the doors of the Sex trade, what they found when they got there, and why they stayed. Follow eleven Sex Workers through the streets, massage parlors, Brothels, and strip clubs to the high rises in New York and the Bell Captains in Vegas. This is a story, a different kind of American Story that will leave you speechless. Written by
A Powerful and Thought - Provoking Documentary, Revealing the Real People in a Misunderstood line of Work
I just viewed "American Courtesans" over the past week. This look into the lives and thoughts of a variety of women in the field of erotic labor is a "must - see" for anyone who wants a real comprehensive understanding of the people who offer Escort services, their life backgrounds, and how they view the value and the challenges of their profession. I would encourage and recommend viewing of "American Coutesans" to anyone with preconceived notions about erotic services and the people who provide that work. Those notions will be changed by the end of viewing the film.
This documentary stands with the best of "Identity Politics" film -making such as the seminal documentary on LGBT individuals, "Word Is Out". I highly recommend this documentary to any academic with curriculum involving human sexuality and culture, social movements, and marginalized and stigmatized social groups.
