Eight lesbian and bisexual women who work as prostitutes, strippers, porn stars, and phone sex workers discuss how they negotiate their jobs, intimacy with lovers, and values. “Sexperts” Carol Queen, Annie Sprinkle, Scarlot Harlot, and Joan Nestle provide insight into the historical presence of queer sex workers. This video has screened internationally in film festivals, universities, museums, and was in the 1994 Whitney Museum’s series “From India to America: New Directions in Indian-American Film & Video” and in the 1995 Whitney Biennial.
