Montreal is a city that doesn’t really have a lot sexual hangups.
We’re famous for our strip clubs who proudly feature cartoon boobs on their marquis, we are the North American hub for online porn sites, and we have way too many erotic massage parlors per capita.
But have you ever wondered what it’s actually like to be sex worker in Montreal?
Well now you can. 2 Montreal filmmakers called Ariana Molly and Nicole Richardson have created a unique documentary called Manuelle, Masseuse, which follows the life of a Montreal sex worker.
Manuelle started in the industry at 17, and since then she has been a stripper, a dominatrix, a porn actor, a porn director and an erotic masseuse.
The documentary explores the realities of Quebec’s sex industry though Manuelle’s eyes and shows how the industry has evolved in the last 15 years.
The first official screening will take place on Thursday January 26th at 8:00 pm at Kafein café-bar on 1429A Bishop St.
