The Sex Trade Trailer (2015)
Trailer for The Sex Trade.
The Sex Trade is a study of the contemporary sex trade, a true global industry, both online and off. Part investigative report and part editorial, the film is a foray into a brutal world where key players claim prostitution is simply a service like any other. But who benefits?
High-end and street prostitution, escort agencies, massage parlors, strip clubs, the porn industry, sex tourism - the sex trade is sprawling, and has even spread beyond major urban areas. Behind the glowing signs of clubs and on various websites, men are paying for sex and buying the consent of the women. With incisive comments from experts and enlightening interviews with people who have left or are still in the sex trade, the film takes a behind-the-scenes look at this industry to reveal a modern form of slavery.
