We've made some more decisions about how we are planning to move forward. First thing, and most important is that we are breaking this docu into 3 parts:
1) Sex in the Wild West
2) Religion in the Wild West
3) Marriage in the Wild West
The current push is to finish Part 1: Sex in the Wild West which will detail our journey into the deep dry mojave desert of Nevada to visit the legal brothels, and to talk to many legal sexworkers, women who work here and were equally as excited to openly share their stories with all of us!
We are currently getting ready to raise some funds. Our crowdfunding efforts would be towards this end, completing Part 1: Sex in the Wild West.
We feel, however, that it is important to clarify, while crowdfunding is about raising money it is ALSO about raising awareness, building community, and getting people involved in a larger way. Money is great, but your involvement is greater.
This film is not about sex work (nor is it about polygamy, or same sex marriage) this film at it's core is about anyone who has ever felt like their sexuality is different from everyone else, for anyone who has felt like who they are inside is not acceptable in a larger society, and for anyone who has struggled to understand their selves, whether it be sexual or otherwise, as a whole.
By exposing layers of stigma around sexuality I hope to paint a broader picture about how lack of acceptance in our society leads to greater violations of the human condition.
This theme will be interwoven through all 3 parts.
