Media Request
« on: 10 May 2018, 04:26:47 pm »
Hi all,

I work for BBC Studios and I'm making a short BBC 3 series looking at different aspects of sex, identity and relationships.

As part of this we're hoping to speak to sex workers and their partner who would be happy to chat about their relationship and some of the misconceptions that they've come across.

It's an observational piece so we don't have a presenter or a format, we're just filming people naturally as they go about their day/life and finding out about their experiences.

If anyone wants to get in touch or find out more please drop me an email on Steph.Atkinson@bbc.co.uk

Happy to chat through in more detail.

Thanks,
Steph

Let me guess they want us to expose ourselves for free too.

Not just ourselves but our family/SO.  Do they think we all want 5 minutes of fame for being a sex worker and have no issues throwing our families under the bus in the media.

They are better sticking to the indiscreet types who like to sell a kiss and tell.

What might actually make a good programme

Clients. You won't find them posting here, but there are numerous easy to find message boards where they do. Clients are even more stigmatised than workers, yet most sex workers find that their clients are a pretty decent bunch. Plus this is one of those areas where getting people to talk isn't the problem, it's getting them to shut up once they've started! Just don't involve anyone with a guide book to plug...

Scams. There are numerous scams involving lies about people can make hundreds of pounds for not having sex with clients / be a straight male escort... once they pay several hundred quid to the scammers first. One bunch in Spain have been going for years under a variety of names. What would be interesting would be doing an expose on the fraudsters, possibly by getting someone hired by them to work on the phone lines. They'd need to be female...

Scum. There are a variety of predators looking for new escorts to prey on. Have someone set up a profile or two, or answer an 'escorts wanted for agency' ad and see for yourself. Report on the results, naming names of the baddies. As well as being good TV/radio/story, it will also help protect new people.

If you use any of those, and want to make a donation to help cover the cost of the site, I am sure something can be arranged.
