ARE WE READY FOR REAL MOVIES ABOUT SEX WORK?

ARE WE READY FOR REAL MOVIES ABOUT SEX WORK?

Think of movies that you know are related to sex work.  Most of you will instantly think of the movie "Pretty Woman", which we all know is not a true representation of the industry.

  However, it's hard to think of any movies that actually show you the industry as we know it.  The last thing I can think of was last year's "Love for Sale" by Rupert Everett and it was a documentary, not a movie.

  Many of us here on the Barby Escort site are hoping for a movie that really shows the sex industry as it is, but every time a movie starts out right, it either deviates and gets horribly wrong or gets  little attention because it does not fit with their stereotypes about sex work.  So are we ready for a real sex movie?

  "Beloved" escorts bucharest

  The Cannes Film Festival is huge.  If you show your movie there, you will get a lot of attention and earn a lot of money for your efforts, whether the movie is good or bad.

  For Nabil Ayouch, he knew that Cannes was the perfect place to create his "Beloved."  The film is described by Variety as "a remarkably frank, if not original (for the eyes of international arthouse) approach to prostitution in Marrakech."

  Ayouch made waves before when his film "Horses of God" was released, which looked at the attackers behind the bombings in Casablanca in 2003. However, he knew how important research was for this project and said that before  continue to do "Much loved", spoke with "between 200 and 300 young women who were or were prostitutes". bucharest escorts

  Clearly, he did something right, because many at the film festival believed that an honest look at the industry was exactly what they needed.  That being said, it looks like he shook the boat again.

  Cry!

 However, the film caused a huge outcry in Morocco, which is a very conservative nation in North Africa, and the government has taken steps to ban the film from ever being shown in the country.

  It's not at all surprising, given the subject of the film, but that stopped Ayouch from talking about the ban: “I'm shocked and surprised by this ban.  I do not understand that my film can be banned when I have not yet applied for a license to be shown.  It appears that the government is taking steps to ensure that it will never be shown and described it as "a serious outrage against Moroccan values ​​and morale", as well as "a flagrant attack on the kingdom's image".

  It is certainly an extreme way of reacting to the film, however CCM stated that the "rude language" that appeared in the film "would not have been passed on to the committee" and that "at best, the scenes would have been cut  .  In the worst case, he would have been refused.  "

  Censorship? bucharest escorts

  For Ayouch, this is a step too far and he fights in a very vocal way.  He claims that "the freedom of expression of all Moroccan artists is threatened by this act of censorship by anticipation."

  He also wants to make it clear that "prostitution is all around us, and instead of refusing to see it, we should try to understand how women who have had such a difficult life end up."

  However, many still have a problem with the film, and this latest statement from him could reveal how.  He suggests that certain difficulties in life lead people to the sex industry, which makes it seem that those involved have no choice.

  Jay Weissberg of Variety also talks about the film and the censorship it faces, saying that "the storm will overshadow the film, which pushes the envelope, but says nothing new about how prostitutes and women in general are treated."

  Time for change?

  Almost every movie about sex workers tends to focus on prostitutes.  For some reason, their work on the street is more shocking and thus attracts more people to watch the movie.  So more money for movie makers!

  However, it does not show what the industry really is like.  It's the same story about women who work on the streets, who face danger at every step and who need to be saved.  Look at "Pretty Woman."  She is saved by a client and everything is fine magically.

  The end of the film fits the stereotype of the "white knight on a fire rider" as he climbs the fire escape (or should we say tower?) To save her.

  So it seems like almost every movie out there adds to the stereotype and stigma around the industry.

  Are we ready for that?

  Are we really ready for a real sex movie?  All the evidence suggests that we are not, as people still buy the stigmata around sex workers.  They are still seen as lost, lonely people trying to gain acceptance in any way they can.

  Personally, I'm more than ready for a real look.  I don't think there's a single movie or TV show that says "this is the sex industry" and I think we need that.

  So what would you most like to see in a sex movie or TV show?  What are the key points you think are missing?  How can we show them that most of those who work in the industry are happy to be here?
