It was excrutiating at times and completely revelatory at others.
All three women felt empowered and had more self esteem since becoming escorts and yet they all seemed to be so vulnerable to me.
An interview with one of the clients was eye-opening for everyone : the man in question, the sex worker, Louis and the audience.

He's consistently brilliant and I always watch whenever he brings a new doc out.


It nearly always stems from abuse at some level. You always get the feeling of a missing psychological link whether it be the clients or the prostitutes. The way the woman talked about offering a service, i can't help thinking of a vending machine with feelings as Richard Ashcroft once said. The couple who were virgins when they met were the ones that concerned me the most.

He likes to work around the edges of society Louis.

Started watching Billions last night on box set. Damien Lewis as usual a solid performance but Paul Giamatti just steals it as the Attorney General.

Brilliant series and performances.
Lewis's character gets better throughout the series, but yes, Giamatti is the star. Enjoy Davy.
