Lena Morgenroth, sex worker and computer scientist, is the opposite of the miserable cliché of prostitutes and offers an insight into her live. It is one of the most controversial themes of contemporary feminism: sex work. While some people categorically condemn sex work as abuse, sex workers themselves often insist that their profession is their free choice. What does being a sex worker actually mean? Sex work as practiced by Lena Morgenroth and her colleagues has nothing to do with patriarchal oppression. One of the greatest strengths of Swobodnik's film is that it shows the important difference between sexism and prostitution. In a sexism-free space, sex work is not exploitation. Or as Lena puts it: "You don't buy my body, you buy my service".
