The show features various strippers, prostitutes, dominatrixes and phone sex operators, but instead of showing off their wares, theyll be presenting skits, performance art pieces and spoken word dramatizations depicting various issues of sex workers.
According to curator and emcee Annie Oakley, the traveling show touches on the full range of experiences that sex workers go through and attempts to demystify the stereotypes people have about prostitutes.
In addition, Oakley says the show presents a positive message about decriminalized prostitution and gets audience members to think about it as a legitimate career that deserves equal protection under the law.
The tour begins tonight (Feb. 10) in Portland, Oregon, and while one of the troupes members sometimes does fake solicitations of people in the audience, Oakley says no one in the show is currently working or earning extra money after hours.
