My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again? Nah.

The above video is the entire film but I was able to see the pristine widescreen DVD with English subtitles which makes all the difference in the world.

Meet Claude Janna.  She fucks for francs.

She's very bubbly, charismatic and a great interview.

Along the adventures we attend a prostitute convention in Paris where things get politically heated up.

We visit a dress making shop and talk to the gals about their thoughts on the profession to discover they're pretty damn easy about it.

I'm glad she's a seamstress, aren't you?

We've got to get the tranny prostitutes' opinion...

When asked, they (tranny prostitutes) often don't tell their clients they're men until the last moment.  I'd like to think I would have figured it out a long time ago with this gal.

Back to Janna.  She's a piece of work.  She doesn't take her top off after the guy paid her just before the sex.  He asks her to take it off.  She refuses unless he pays her more.  That's fucked up.  I would've taken my money back and split but the guy pays anyway.  Janna's mistake #1.

He casually tries to touch her breasts and she freaks out into a slap fit of rage.  WTF, right?  She should've discussed all of this beforehand.  There's a reason why I'm bringing all of this up.  Trust me.  That was Janna's mistake #2.

It's practically over before it started and he's paid a lot of dough.  So now she gets off the bed and bidet's her privates.  He gets up to wash and it's mistake #3 that leads directly to (drum roll, please)...

Beatdown '75!

It takes a couple of seconds before a gaggle of chicks emerge from behind the camera to put an end to it and throw him out of the room.  That's some fucked up shit, especially when it comes on so quickly.  I'm not sayin' what he did was right.  It wasn't and he never should have laid a finger on her but she should have done a much better job at preparing this guy by setting the ground rules.  She's a pro.  She of all people know firsthand that men can be raging assholes and can turn on a dime when you press the right buttons, especially when it comes to their manhood and ego.  Just sayin'.  To see it all play out in front of you is a whole different matter. You need to see this.  It's a real shocker.  It's also when I started to wonder if this was staged.  I find it curious that several Johns allowed the crew to film them fucking a prostitute.

And then there's a scene that precedes this one where the camera is on the street with the girls while they work when a police van storms in and arrests the gals as they put them into the paddy wagon.  Then we get the same scene but from inside the wagon as the girls are loaded in.  That smacked of staging.  I really enjoyed this film.  It's interesting and sad but it's nice to get it straight from the whoreses mouth. Ahahahahaha, see what I did there?  Most of them seemed like really cool broads.  I'm not surprised.  It's just nice to see that side.

And the answer to the question we've all been wondering ever since that lame-ass whore-with-a-heart-of-gold movie, PRETTY WOMAN (1990) came out?

Goodnight, folks, I'm outta here!  Roll credits.
