Excellent work on prostitution

"The only reason why I don't give this five stars is because it is so depressing. On the one hand, it was enjoyable to see prostitutes that are proud of their work and are willing to go on camera and admit that. On the other hand, however, this movie implies that the women do it only to raise money to score drugs. Though the interviewees seem not to know it, one phenomenon causes the other and a viscious cycle is taking place.
Still, things in this movie are hilarious! One prostitute calls anyone she doesn't like a "pooput"! One boyfriend of a female prostitute admitted that he'd have sex with men if he could make money for drugs through it. The documentary is narrated by a man who has a Barry White-ish, low, stereotypical pimp's voice.
This was sad, but highly enjoyable. Do try to see it and form your own opinion."
THE POINT HAS SOME POINTS

"I HAVE SEEN THIS DOCUMENTARY AND ALL THE PARTS THAT FOLLOW IT (AMAZON YOU MUST GET THEM ALL!) AND IT WAS A VERY SAD BUT INSPRIRATIONAL THING TO SEE. IT TELLS ALL THE DANGERS AND DISADVANTAGES IN THAT LIFESTYLE AND IF I HAD A DAUGHTER WHO WAS GETTING A BIT ON THE WILD SIDE I WOULD SIT HER DOWN AND HAVE HER WATCH THIS. SHE'LL THINK TWICE ABOUT THOSE STREETS IF SHE HAD ANY KIND OF CONSCIOUS AFTER WATCHING THIS. BRAVO!!!"
