If in Hamburg Herbertstraße, the Parisian Bois de Boulogne or in Amsterdam’s Oude Kerk,people who want to buy sex know where to find it. The prostitution business flourishes in Europe. What are the women like who offer Sex for money? What do they sell: their body, a service or even love? Has anything changed through the centuries regarding their reputation, their social standing or has sex work even become an ordinary job for some of them? Katja Esson and Uta Kolano talked to women in Germany, France, Greece, Italy and Great Britain and stated that their respective working conditions and personal attitudes vary as much as their customer’s inclinations. The documentation analyzes the relation between power, money and morals and takes a close look at the female position within this constellation in the run of European history. It describes how clients treat prostitutes, asks questions concerning hygiene and contraception as well as payment and the dropping out possibilities.
