“The documentary, Scarlet Road, follows the extraordinary work of Australian sex worker, Rachel Wotton. Impassioned about freedom of sexual expression and the rights of sex workers, she invites us into the world of a long over-looked clientele – people with disability. Rachel Wotton has become highly specialized in working with clients with disability and it is her belief that human touch and sexual intimacy can be some of the most therapeutic aspects to our existence. She is also co-founder of the non-profit organization, Touching Base which was developed to assist people with disabilities and sex workers to connect with each other by focusing on access, discrimination, human rights, legal issues and the attitudinal barriers that these two marginalized communities often face. Rachel Wotton believes that people with disability have an intrinsic right to sexual expression.
Erotic photographer and author, David Steinberg is also quite passionate about eliminating the shame and stigma which surround the sexuality of people with disability. His amazing gift for capturing people’s spirits and deeper emotions with his camera communicates the human dimensions of sex which are common to all of us regardless of health or ability. His online art gallery is one of a kind.”
