TV Interview
« on: November 14, 2017, 02:15:51 PM »
Hi all,

I am contacting from a television production company called Darlow Smithson Productions (http://www.dsp.tv/). Were currently making a programme for BBC One called Ill Gotten Gains which is a documentary series about the proceeds of crime act. Up to date weve been working with various police forces to cover retrospective proceeds of crime cases with interviews with the officers. We aim to look at how seizing criminals goods, and selling them on at auctions can lead to a positive outcome where the money is divided up and distributed to good causes within the local area.
 
One of the proceeds of crime cases that we are looking at is a suspect that has been convicted for running a massage parlour called the Libra Club that was based in Birmingham. Please read more about this case in the following link [removed - do not post links on the forum]

For this case clients paid 65 for 30 minutes with a sex worker who kept 40 of the fee, the prosecution said. The club made at least 25 from each transaction, as well as charging a 10 entrance fee.

To tie in with the above case we are hoping to interview someone who is currently or in the past worked as a sex worker within a massage parlour.

I am completely aware that this can be a sensitive subject, and I can reassure you that our production team has past experience in handling subjects of a sensitive nature. We would offer the interviewee anonymity if they so wished, and the individual would share with us their experience of sex work and the experiences they have had.

The filming will take up to 1 hour in total and it would be a 3-4 minute item within the programme.

Please do let me know if you may be interested.

Thank you for your time,
Cat

Are you kidding me? Why should we help you perpetuate the stigma surrounding sex work?

This forum is mostly indies not parlour although there are some who come from parlour backgrounds.

Also why would we want to help you sensationalise and bring even more negative stereotypes to our line of work? There are already enough shows out there accusing us of all being victims or in some way linked to pimps and parlours.
Have a look through at our previous discussions on this kind of documentary before you post maybe?

I don't think it necessarily is , it's about crime and as we know there is a real darker side to this industry through totally illegal means.

Some men/ women are really suffering due to illegal agencies and pimping , working day and night etc.

Some SW's are in a vicious circle with all sorts pressure to stay due to being bullied etc .

Some also have no control over their aw profiles etc .

I think if this covered the legalities of the industry it would perhaps ( under a v wide umbrella ) be helpful or could be depending on the content.

Personally I hate the thought of guys making a fortune illegally out of vulnerable s/w's who feel they have little choice regarding their situation .

It would v useful if illegalities v legalities were pointed out as as most of use know ( but not all) but the clients don't quite often .

I pay tax , I'm in it primarily for the money but I not above helping someone else if I can.

Some of these Bastards make a lot of money with little regard for the safety of whoever they pimp out and yes it's criminal and they should face the consequences .

Anyone else looking forward to Amy's reply to this?  ;) ;D

Since we've had another two sign up in the last 24 hours as well as that stupid twat the other day, I'd suggest getting ready for some ignoring, to be honest. I have no interest in or opinion of the OP here - they've been told to do something by somebody who gets paid more than them and they're trying to do it.

Always remember that there are people here who need help and advice and if you have ten minutes spare to read and post it can be put to far better use than feeding the vultures.

Thanks for all your comments, i do appreciate your concerns. As Guiltypleasures points out we would aim to point out the illegalities vs legalities of the industry and this could be a good way to inform a wider audience.

I am contactable on 0208-222-4240 from 10-6:30pm if anyone would like to have a chat.

Many thanks, Cat
