There are definitely going to be those who see Remedy as a cautionary tale about a young woman losing herself in sex work. But that reduces Remedy’s story to cheap melodrama and misses the point entirely. Remedy isn’t the movie that you’d show someone to sell them on the idea of becoming a pro domme, but neither is it a morality tale about the dangers of kink, professional or otherwise. – Chris Hall
Earlier this fall, I had the pleasure of meeting the folks at Slixa at the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Summit in Washington, DC, where I did double duty as both videographer and presenter with my talk on “Sexual Positivity in Film: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.” In that talk I explored whether it’s possible to have a sex-positive film with a tragic trajectory. Well, according to the reviewer, I was able to do just that.
Just so you know, Slixa is a classy online resource to help clients connect with sex workers of all persuasions. Unlike other advertising sites, it also contains an informative blog talking about political and everyday topics relevant to sex workers, including advocacy, human rights, fashion, entertainment, outreach, lobbying, etc. So happy to be featured and so well reviewed on their site — I’ve read some of the other reviews and they do *not* pull punches when it comes to giving their opinions on depictions of sex work in media.
