Storyline

Five Finnish sex workers tell us about their work. In re-enacted interviews, they walk us through the process of selling and buying sex. For them, sex work is above all just work: sometimes boring, sometimes fun, sometimes interesting, sometimes hard - but always autonomous. Yes, the fear is always present, they say, but it is neither the clients nor the law enforcement they fear. Their greatest fear is us, the others - and the stigma they so readily are branded with. Written by Elina Talvensaari
