Straight For the Money: Interviews with Queer Sex Workers
This documentary offers a unique perspective on sex work from the lesbian point of view. Through interviews, erotica, and archival footage, the videomaker explores the lives of lesbian strippers, prostitutes and dancers, including author, activist and femme fatale Annie Sprinkle. The women share the perspectives and insights they have gained working in this predominantly heterosexual and male dominated industry. Positive, funny and provocative, STRAIGHT FOR THE MONEY interrogates the interconnections between feminism, sexual empowerment, desire and cold, hard cash.

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape,
Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to
be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
