What is it about?

There are many fears, a lot is still unspoken in the topic of prostitution / sexwork. Legal and social exclusion, discrimination, stigmatization and criminalization make it almost impossible for prostitutes/sexworkers to talk openly about their situation, concerns and problems. Often ignored and reduced as a victim, the lyrics on the listening station offer a possibility for reflection.
