Over half of the clients of Rachel Wotton, a professional sex worker in Australia, were people with disabilities. Prostitution is not a criminalized act in Australia. There, people own the rights to sex and are recognized in the way that they should not be constrained because of the limitations of their bodies. The producers of Scarlet Road follow Rachel’s lead in exploring the sex lives of people with disabilities, to rethink as well as reflect on the needs of sex workers and people with physical and mental disabilities. This documentary has received over 30 film awards, including the Audience Award at FIFO Tahiti and the Audience Choice-Best of the Fest Award in the ‘Outside Looking In’ category, San Francisco Sex Worker Film and Arts Festival, and full house during our screening in 2014.
