Whores’ Glory

This documentary takes you to Thailand, Bangladesh, and Mexico. It explores the lives of prostitutes and we get a glimpse of their mindsets as well as their customers’. It is hard to think of prostitution as multi-faceted, but this documentary shows that it’s possible. Some of the sex-workers in Thailand try to enjoy their jobs while others in Bangladesh hate it with a passion. As a woman, I was touched by this documentary and it helped me keep in mind that sex workers are human beings first.
