" sexwork to me is very much about artifice. it´s an act, a character, a facade, a mask I take on and sell in hourly increments to those who have the need, money and social position to tailor-order their desires.
my work clothes are kind of a kinky uniform which I put on, soil, strip and wash afterwards - like any other worker in the new economy."

"A film about the difficulty to join love and sexuality and the inability to live without emotional contact",
this is how filmmaker Julia Ostertag describes her short film SEXJUNKIE.
It's narrated by a woman who tells us she is addicted to sex and that there is no love, only sex. She is addicted to knowing men wants to have sex with her. The narration is done really well, and what's shown on screen is nicely lit pornographic scenes of her doing blokes, and some occasional odd shots that really stood out and made it more than just narrated porn. There is no doubt that Julia Ostertag could make some really good stuff that is being missed by most, if she keeps up with what she created with this one.
