The Sex Trade
Available on Tubi TV
In the past 30 years and with the rise of the Internet, the sex trade has expanded worldwide and become a true industry. But who is benefiting from this phenomenon, which has turned the bodies of women into a commodity to be exploited? The Sex Trade is a foray into a brutal world whose key players trivialize the impact of their actions by claiming that prostitution is simply a service like any other. Part investigative report and part editorial, this documentary delves into an industry that often operates legally. High-end and street prostitution, escort agencies, massage parlors, strip clubs, the porn industry, sex tourism—the sex trade is sprawling, and has even spread beyond major urban areas.
