The Sex Trade is a documentary study of the contemporary sex trade, a true global industry. Part investigative report and part editorial, this is a foray into a brutal world where key players- from activists to pimps to sex workers- claim prostitution is simply a service like any other. But who really benefits?

High-end and street prostitution, escort agencies, massage parlors, strip clubs, the porn industry, sex tourism: the sex trade is sprawling, and has spread beyond major urban areas into suburban and rural areas. Behind the glowing neon signs of clubs or on various websites, men are buying the consent of the women.

With incisive comments from experts and enlightening interviews with current and former sex workers, The Sex Trade is a behind-the-scenes analysis of this rapidly growing business.
