Did You Know?

The women interviewed for the Documentary American Courtesans were Sex Workers, the majority of whom are still working in the Adult industry. Each one different yet all with a common thread of working in an industry that outsiders aren't privy to.See more »

A Powerful and Thought - Provoking Documentary, Revealing the Real People in a Misunderstood line of Work, 20 July 2013
Author: DJP_ma from United States

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.
