'Riding the Turnpike' Explores Sex Industry In Connecticut

'Riding the Turnpike' Explores Sex Industry In Connecticut | Sex Work | Scoop.it

The show's subject matter should get attention. It centers on the sex industry on the Berlin Turnpike, home of big box stores, fast food franchises and 1,200 motel rooms, many that rent by the hour.

 

The work, set in a strip club, follows four women involved in prostitution in different ways and for different reasons "and explores the variations and definitions of trafficked youth and women, survival sex workers and voluntary sex workers. The lines between who is trafficked, who is there of their own free will and who is there for survival, are blurred as we watch the women navigate their own desperate situation," writes Hartbeat, describing the show.

The German government can only estimate how many sex workers there are in Germany, where prostitution is legal. Supposedly there are around 400,000, half of which are likely immigrants. The sex industry turns over around 15 billion euros a year ($19.5 billion).

 

But where do sex workers come from? What type of people are they? In collaboration with the German Theater in Göttingen, the theater collective Werkgruppe2 has produced a piece of theater, entitled "Red Light," that provides answers to these questions.
