A performance based on true stories from past and present New Zealand sex workers promises a candid no-holds-barred insight into the sex industry - one they hope will dispel some of the myths surrounding their profession. Paying For It won a development grant after its first outing at the New Zealand Fringe Festival in March. Its co producers - and sex industry insiders - Blair and Satine (not their real names) have used it to gather more stories which the two of them share with the audience in the documentary theatre piece. Lynn Freeman talks to Satine and Blair, and first asks why the stage is the right place to share these often confronting insights. Paying For It - An Insider's' Guide to the NZ Sex Industry Vol 2 opens at Bats Theatre in Wellington on the 10th of October.
