Sex Worker Voices
'Nothing About Us, Without Us'
An Open Letter to the BBC and Louis Theroux from the Participants Filmed for the Upcoming Documentary, Selling Sex
Georgina Tyson and Ashleigh Williams, are practising 'full sex' sex workers that live together, care for each other, study together and make art as Babeworld. Recently commissioned by the ICA for work about sex work and accepted at the RCA to develop their practice, they welcomed a chance to share their individual stories of sex work and to show the world what sex work looks like for two mentally ill/disabled, working class artists in 2019. I mean who could say no to Louis Theroux? With the best intentions we fought to show an accurate representation of sex work - speaking only from our own experiences and learned knowledge. Things did not pan out in a way that added value to conversations around sex work. So in an attempt to control our own narrative where the BBC failed, we have documented it and shared it online.
