Summary
Buying Sex looks at the contentious debate in 2013 over reforms to Canadian prostitution laws, challenged by both pro- and anti-prostitution forces, and with no evident consensus about which way forward is either best or likely. Would decriminalizing prostitution allow sex workers to take more control over their activities, run legal brothels, and manage their own procurement businesses without fear of punishment, or would it give male buyers and sex-trade business owners even more power and opportunity to benefit from, and possibly exploit, the sale of sexual services? This film brings forward the voices of sex workers, formerly prostituted women, policy-makers, lawyers, and even the male buyers. All agree that they want to improve the workers' safety, but have polarized philosophies about how that can be achieved best. Respecting differences of ideology and opinion, Buying Sex challenges us to question whether prostitution is the "oldest profession" or the "oldest oppression."
