Disgusting. Shows women as commodities, not people.
1 May 2014 | by babiit33See all my reviews

The people in this documentary who are encouraging prostitution are overlooking what this implies. It continues to objectify women by selling them as commodities. The men on this documentary who buy sex won't their faces because they claim to be married. As if it isn't hard enough to keep a marriage together, now this documentary is trying to promote the legalization of prostitution to tell men that it is OK to get sex elsewhere and it is not cheating because it is not a relationship. There are YOUNG, naive girls in this documentary who are prostituting themselves, legally in various countries. This documentary reveals a part of humanity that is completely regressive.
